It's far less creative than minecraft. I think it works for the type of person who likes to build legos from the manuals but doesn't play with them much otherwise.
I played a ton of the first one, but haven't grabbed the second one yet. If it's like my experience with the first one it starts out pretty on rails bidding wise, but by the end you'll be spending ages decking it your little towns in increasingly crazy ways. Definitely nowhere near as freeform as Minecraft, which I like as it gives you actual goals and stuff.
I've been playing through The Surge which was free on PS+ a little while ago. It's a pretty good bloodborne knockoff, but sci fi themed. My main complaint is that little twisty industrial tunnels all kinda look the same, so remembering your way around gets ready tricky. It adds a couple fun twists to bloodborne, like a souls multiplier the longer you go without hitting a bonfire and a timer on your dropped souls when you die. I'm not sure I would have been into paying $60 for so blatant a clone, but I'm having a lot of fun with it and think it's worth playing. Also it has made me want to replay Dead Space 1+2 pretty badly.
Currently, the one that is keeping me up late at night is Payday 2. I especially enjoy the stealth missions.
I'm also playing more of Enter the Gungeon, now that the game runs smoother on it and I'm actually getting down to the 5th floors on a regular basis, as opposed to once in a while.
Lastly, I picked up Depth. Boy, that game is fun and scary at the same time. Still having flashbacks when 6 year old me saw Jaws in the theaters while playing this game. The unintelligible warbling of warnings from your teammates and the relative darkness just creeps me out.
And I love it.
Also loving Civ 6 which I now have on the ipad which means I can play it while travelling. Flights would go a lot better if I didn't drink so much that I can't friggin play. C'est la vie.
I've said this before, but any fans of Deus Ex or Half-Life should play Prey without hesitation.
This is a game that would make an amazing movie or series as well. The story is that compelling.
No Man's Sky in VR though. WOW. An amazing experience, albeit a bit blurry in PSVR. I'm willing to overlook that in exchange for the totally immersive gameplay. This will be absorbing my time for quite a while.
It looks like the current version doesn't yet have a PS4 Pro patch to bump the resolution up a bit, but I'm definitely interested in picking up a PSVR.
Now I have a castle, easy access with railway to a nether fortress, bunch of cows, water gates, uber bow & pickaxe...
And my daughter loves seeing me playing it (and she even plays it herself, in Creative mode).
