Ted Price, CEO and founder of Insomniac Games, software house responsible for Spyro the Dragon, Ratchet & Clank and Marvel’s Spider-Man, spoke on the Official PlayStation Blog to reveal to us what are his six favourite PlayStation 4 games.
After all, the pages of the institutional blog of the Japanese house are a bit ‘also now: Insomniac Games has been acquired by Sony in very recent times, and from now on will develop exclusively for the PlayStation family consoles. Price, from his incredible videogame experience, confessed to being a complete player, so he always chooses carefully the titles to buy, knowing that he will spend many hours in their worlds. “When I finally choose something, there is no better feeling than being completely absorbed in a whole new reality, experiencing the unique vision of a creative team”, he said, before revealing his favourite games. Here is what they are (for each of them an excerpt of his comment is reported):
- The Last of Us Remastered: “Naughty Dog has created a dark and very personal masterpiece, able to involve you more than anything else I’ve ever experienced on any platform” ;
- The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: “In addition to what appears to be endless playability, what has had the most effect on me has been the depth, variety and richness of its secondary missions” ;
- Inside: “More than anything else, I believe that the subversive social commentary of the game is what should make players reflect on how repression is present in many forms, and how important it is to oppose it” ;
- Horizon Zero Dawn: “Hunting robot dinosaurs are really … too rewarding. Add to this a vast and wonderful world, a strong heroine and a style of play that never gets boring, and here is the title of which I could not do without” ;
- Dead Cells: “The central mechanics are extremely well designed and the retro look helps make it unique compared to all the other games on this list” ;
- God of War: “From the first thrilling battle to every twist on the road, the game has continued to surprise me with its perfect combination of well-balanced action, clever enigmas, humour and strong emotions”.
