I couldn’t make this list without putting inside one of the masterpieces that From Software has left us on PS4 (like BloodBorne or Dark Souls 3).

THE LAST GUARDIAN

Genre: Adventure

I’ve saved this game for last as the last thing to put on the cake: the icing.

This game by Fumito Ueda could not be described as anything other than a work of art from head to toe. It is a fantasy adventure in which we accompany a strange giant creature that seems to have a real life of its own. An incredible setting in which we immerse ourselves to escape from a castle of sorts, and that’s as far as I can read.

If you are thinking of buying The Last Guardian you have to be eager to live an incredible story and get caught by its setting, which proposes some very intelligent and well-measured challenges in its environment, beyond the pure and simple action.

Evaluation criteria for the list

In order to elaborate these lists of the best Video Games of each platform, in La Guía del Mando we rely on titles that stand out in certain elements.

Gameplay mechanics

This is undoubtedly one of the most important sections, because a good game has to have a good gameplay. It is the way the title interacts with the player, it doesn’t have to be anything fancy, it simply has to implement the mechanics that are proposed to the player in a well executed way.

To give a couple of examples; what would be a boxing game where you can’t throw a good hook at your opponent or dodge his punches? or how good would a game that wants you to identify with its character be if the choices you are allowed to make have no effect on the course of the game?

Story

In the same way, a good story is not necessarily long or complicated, it is enough that it is well narrated and has no inconsistent gaps in its approach.

Graphics

Another important point is the technical aspect, the game has to look good (resolution) and has to be able to show a rate of images per second that does not take you out of the experience.

Duration

The length of the game has to be consistent with its story. Here we penalize artificially stretched games by repeating the same missions over and over again.

In the same way there are cases that for production reasons have lacked a little bit of duration, being seen in the last sections of the game, as the knots exposed at the beginning of the same one pass in a hasty way to finish. Everything has to have its time.
