Starting with Falconeer, it appears.

Unless I am missing something, cloud saves only come with a Plus subscription, no?  I don't have Plus anymore, I found myself not getting any use from it.  And no, it is not worth 60 bucks just for some cloud saves.

Ah yes of course it requires a subscription. To me it's worth it for the cloud saves -which I value a lot- and for the online play. Especially in the *Souls and Bloodborne. Messages from other players and invasions are part of the experience.

Fair enough.  I am not super annoyed by the loss of save files for BB or the different Souls games, because whenever I get that itch I am more than happy to start over anyway.  But that said...do you also need Plus to get all the online benefits from those games?  I realize that sounds like a retarded question on the surface, I just have some lingering memory of that not being required with these games in particular.  I might just be remembering PC versions, as that's where I have Dark Souls 1 and 2.

Losing my FFX and FFXII saves, otoh....that was really goddamn irritating.

I think you need a PSN subscription on the PS4 for everything online except for FF XIV because you are already paying them a monthly fee.

I remember losing my FF XIII save when I was tackling the final boss. That scarred me and pushed me into forever paying for online saves.

I didn't value cloud saves on the PS4 (partially because I just assumed it was doing it automatically) but then I forgot to back the data up before upgrading to a PS4 pro and wiping my old system.  Goodbye, Persona 5 save game among many others.

Most but not all PS4 online games require PS Plus. Some exceptions include Warframe and Fortnite. On the PS3 (or Vita), PS Plus is not required for online play, So if you first played, say, Dark Souls on the PS3 you wouldn’t have needed PS Plus to get the online stuff.

I think I needed it for roster updates on Madden, and the current week matchups, etc. I did get a couple games using the Plus discount, but the free games offered since I got the PS4 in September have been garbage (I guess GoW3 was good, just not for me). I just cancelled Plus, very little value, in my opinion.

I've gotten a number of free games with Plus, though I haven't necessarily played most of them, and I don't tend to play online, and yet I'm still paying for Plus.

There was also Yakuza Kiwami (Yakuza 1 remastered) and Destiny 2. This month has Steep, which isn't bad.

More decent games from just last year -  Soma, Onrush, Bloodborne, Trials Fusion, Ratchet and Clank, Dues Ex, Mafia 3, Dead by Daylight.  2017 also had a list of pretty good games.

Trippy - It looked to me like it was just some free DLC for Destiny 2. If it was the full game, I'm really stupid or it was poorly communicated. Could be either!

Druzil, I would've gotten Bloodborne from that list, not a lot there for me. Maybe Mafia 3, though I have that on Steam already. Certainly not worth a subscription, vs buying them on sale or just saving my money for games I'm actually interested in.

Ok, you guys keep going off on the switch.  What are the great games to play for it currently, other than Zelda?  May cave and get one.

Mind you, I have zero interest in using it for mobile gaming and only intend to use it like a traditional console on the couch.

For Switch/Nintendo exclusives this list is decent (from #1 - 8):

WARNING: Shitty ad blocker blocker
https://www.gamesradar.com/best-switch-exclusives/

1. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
2. Super Mario Odyssey
3. Super Smash Bros Ultimate
4. Splatoon 2
5. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
6. Xenoblade Chronicles 2
7. Octopath Traveler
8. Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle
9. Arms
10. Fast RMX

Other Switch exclusives / Wii U ports that may be interesting to you:

Bayonetta 2 - Wii U port, original is also available if you don't already have it for another platform

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze - Wii U port, get this instead of New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe if you want a Nintendo-brand 2D platformer

Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! or Let's Go, Eevee! - remakes of Pokémon Yellow

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition - Wii U port, if you really need your Musou-game fix

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate - missing the graphics and quality-of-life improvements in MH:World but has a crap-ton more content

Starlink: Battle for Atlas - game is not Nintendo-exclusive but the Star Fox gang and playable Fox McCloud pilot is exclusive to the Switch-version. Kind of a meh Ubisoft "open-world" (star system) game but hey it's Fox McCloud (but it's not a real Star Fox game). Skip the physical toys and get one of the digital versions if you really want to play it.

Edit: added list, also not all Switch exclusives

Oh, that adblocker popup.

I saw a few things in the GamesRadar Switch list before I mailed a turd to their home office, but not sure I saw Smash Ultimate. It's great.

Son has been a fan of Towerfall since it came to PS4, but in his group of 5 there was always someone left to watch instead of play. The Switch version allows 6 players, so he has moved to that.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is probably the best jRPG that's come out in a long time.

Family logged a lot of hours in Stardew Valley.

Personally, I think my top played are Xenoblade, Breath of the Wild, Smash Ultimate, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Odyssey (this is great), and Mario v Rabbids (very good X-COM lite). I probably didn't play as much Switch in 2018 and didn't pick up some titles I wanted (Octopath) due to the PS4 having such a good year for exclusives.

It's out for folks who subscribe to EA's "games as a service" at the $15/month level.  Reviews should be rolling out soon.

I would like to thank Vladimir Putin for ensuring that every member of the NPR news staff has had to say "Pussy Riot" on the air multiple times.

I have been playing for the past 30 minutes. What it seems to be: Mass Effect Andromeda 2.
What it actually is: Iron Man Online, actually War Machine Online.
What I don't like: the Marvel comedy-esque mood of the acting. Hate it.

We can now add Tetris 99 to that list.

OP is assuming its somewhat of a design-goal of eve to make players happy.
this is however not the case.

Definitely glad I held off on Anthem. Reviews seem to be coming in between 50-75% even from the paid reviewers. I'm thinking EA sweeps this IP under the rug in less than a year, especially when Division 2 utterly crushes it in a month.

What modern games fall into this genre? I feel like I'm missing a few of these loot-shooters.

Anthem
Destiny 1&2
Division 1&2
Warframe
