Just finished it.

I have no honour.

Game of the year.

I wanna see a Ghost of Tsushima 3 where we see Jin's grown to be a grouchy but good hearted ronin.

They're over there, by their theremin.

I’ve unlocked the 2nd island but I was about 8 Mongol outposts/villages etc unaccounted for, 5 are hidden in the fog so it’s either Google or a lot of galloping about. Travelling around is just so great though. Overall I think this could be the best exclusive Sony made last gen...I can’t decide :fp:

I'd easily put it second behind Bloodborne.

I think you're jumping to conclusions a bit. Just keep playing your natural game instead of going hunting for them.

It’s top 3 for me, absolutely. Got a soft spot for Horizon but Ghost does a lot of things that that game did better.

Man, biggest mistake I made was upgrading that so the strawberry floating firefly rumble activated when you were 60 or 80 meters away from a collectable. Ruined the best outfit. (Traveller's gear + strawhat with a cut in it was my favourite combo.)

I’ve put the travellers gear on so maybe that’ll help.
My ‘natural game’ wants me to head north though, and there’s un-liberated places in the south still! Unless you know something I don’t ;)

You definitely shouldn't need to trot back and forth to find everything. All the points of interest are added to the map as you play along and I never felt like I needed to hunt down anything specific.

I really wouldn't want to rank the Sony exclusives. I do think Bloodborne is the best but so many of Sony's exclusive games are of incredible quality that I'd find it impossible to put them in any comfortable order.

The ones that I hadn’t completed popped up on the map automatically but only in places where the map fog had been cleared. So...well gooseberry fool I dunno what to do now. You’ve all planted the SEEDS OF DOUBT.

Aye, but I'm pretty sure that changes the appearance only, the "benefits" remains at maximum level.

Trying to mop up what's left of the game but doing it on lethal.

Thank god for PS5s fast loading. (Keep getting slaughtered but by a cannon brute :slol:)

Yup, but I would have missed it elsewhere. So I just ended up switching to another outfit.

Do you prefer this or Red Dead Redemption 2?

Red Dead, just. The missions in RDR2 are a lot better. Ghost’s are usually - ride here, follow footprints, stab people. But Ghosts has surprised me with the ‘Tales’ of supporting characters, even minor side missions are well written.

Platinum GET.

General thoughts on the game:

I'm surprised no mention was made of Jin's father / the wind at his back when he and Shimura faced off. Would have made for good circular story structure. I mean, neither of them even mention how Jin is more like his father than his uncle. Odd things to leave out.

What the hell kind of goodbye was that between Jin and Yuna? Before the final showdown: I can't lose you too. After everything is done with: See yas. :fp: I didn't want them going off into the sunset holding hands, but ffs give us something which points to their growing feelings for one another.

This is yet another game which would have benefited from climbing, especially during the Shinto shrines gameplay, having some sort of stamina limit. It would have made clambering more interesting. Holding a stick in one direction is not gameplay. Branches and grappling hook points having limited use would also have helped with keeping things interesting.

But massive kudos to Sucker Punch for not relying on lock-on. They made it work, and the swordplay was better for it thanks to the fluid nature of moving between targets.

Still on Act 2 despite pumping some serious hours into the game - the side missions and checking out the question marks, mainly. I’m a bit of a unit though, which is nice.
