Amazing game...visually beautiful, fantastic detail, and most importantly, the
fighting button sequences MAKE SENSE!!!

Yep. BIG fan of Tsushima. It's being rightly touted as Red Dead Ronin and I can see that. RDR2 is better I think but Tsushima does seem to have "cleaned up" some of the more tedious aspects of RDR2 and made it more fun in many respects (collecting loot for one and harvesting, etc.) I just started Act III and like it a lot. The visuals are insane and being a bad ass samurai in a showdown and duel is pretty effing spectacular.

Loving Last of Us 2 though I still find the clickers too scary, ha! Agree with Matt, there's a lot of beauty in the game and heart. Exploration yields a lot of wonderful things- Notes that have cool stories (or flesh out the world or give you clues even!) The museum trip was wonderful and ends with a nice touch of grimness.
For me, with Outer Worlds, Tsushima and Last of Us 2 PS4 is "going out" strong!

Couldn't agree more!  Loved all three of those games.

So here is where I am:

Finished GHOST OF TSUSHIMA.  It deserves every single accolade it's getting.  Simply fantastic.  Beautiful world.  Fantastic story.  Great characters.  Wonderful score.  It's everything you'd want out of a video game and so much more.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I'm now halfway through PREY, a Bethesda game released in 2017.  It didn't do very well with regard to sales, but it's the best ALIENS game ever made. You're trapped on a space station after a series of events of your character's own making and trying to get out. It's a ton of fun.  Scary for sure.  A great backstory that I'm trying to figure out. Very intuitive mechanics.  Be warned: it took a minute to get into because you have to "level up" your character.  You may face obstacles that you have to avoid early on that later you can confront.  But patience exacts a reward.  

AVENGERS.  sigh.  It could have been so much better.  Don't get me wrong, I've had a blast playing multiplayer with Simko since it's release. But there is a desert of content.  Bob and I have played through missions multiple times just waiting for something new.  When previously played missions are rebranded as additional content after we've already played them multiple times?  Bogus.  The update this week that added Tachyon missions and a new base was barely an upgrade.  The base was boring and we finished the two new missions in under an hour.  If you're on the fence about this game, I'd wait.  It fees like it's going to take a long time to populate the world with enough content to make it satisfying.  Reports are that after a very strong initial sales period, people are dropping off multiplayer in record numbers.  Not good.  

Still haven't been able to find a PS5, so it appears I'll finish the PS4 games I have in reserve.

Agree with everything Matt said. GHOST is something that has fallen away for
me only because of work schedule and jumping into AVENGERS.I hadn't
minded that the single player campaign was kind of short for AVENGERS given
how much it had been built up as "finish the solo, then...CO-OP!" As Matt
said...if you're building up your game as an ongoing co-op...have the content
ready to roll out. Granted, I wouldn't be surprised if they're holding a bunch
back for the next gen console launches, but you need to give the faithful a bit
more.

Definitely looking forward to us jumping into some GHOST co-op this week. If
it's like the RDR2 online co-op, though...I will be most disappointed.

What I really want to know...when is the next SNIPER actually coming out????

YES!!!!  I was thinking that just the other day.  Absolutely, 100% without question my all-time favorite co-op game.  The Sniper Elite series is fucking awesome.
