Sony has been pushing their exclusives hard to PC, the third this year (and not even the last) is UNCHARTED: Legacy of Thieves Collection. Consisting of a pairing of the last two games in the series, with 2016’s UNCHARTED 4: A Thief’s End and 2017’s UNCHARTED: The Lost Legacy. These two PlayStation 4 games were gorgeous when they released, and five years on these games are more breathtaking. The remastering and bringing of these games to PC shows how Naughty Dog perfected the formula of their action-oriented adventures. UNCHARTED: Legacy of Thieves Collection is simply a blast and well worth your time in getting to know Nathan Drake for the first or last time.
Boy! It feels good to have more PlayStation games on PC, though I’d like to see PlayStation 5 games and not just several years old PlayStation 4 games. Santa Monica Studio re-invents Kratos and the God of War mythos to an exceptional degree, while still having threads tie back to the original series. Every element of God of War is so carefully thought out and well-executed. It’s all punctuated by punishing combat and powerful moments that simply have to be experienced for yourself. Nearly four years after its original release, those who don’t have a PlayStation for one reason or another can now enjoy it. God of War is an essential PlayStation game that’s now an essential PC game, as well.

Abdul is our Editor-at-Large, and while his reviews were minimal, it didn’t stop him from playing this year’s biggest and brightest hits. If it weren’t for this year’s games, he’d be playing something retro like a classic Mortal Kombat release. Now he has Mortal Kombat 11 to look forward to next year.

God Of War III Remastered is an updated version of the 2010 PlayStation 3 classic. It tells the final chapter of Kratos’ tale, and serves as the book-end to a fantastic trilogy. This remaster isn’t as breathtaking as The Last Of Us was, but it has a discernible bump in fidelity that shows it belongs in the pantheon of other great PS3 titles that would otherwise be forgotten too soon.
