FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

Yes?

I need another PS4 launch title. A platformer would be really nice.......

Why shouldn't I buy this title?

It's either this or Madden.

Well, you're a smart guy who no doubt enjoys originality and innovation. So that right there rules out yet another Madden title. Get Knack!

I guess it's more of an action platformer than the traditional style, like a Mario or whatever, but eh, okay.

Not wanting to play God of War again. I gotta think about this one.

If this means anything to you, I pre-ordered Knack as my launch title. I'm doing this, because I feel nobody is taking risks. I'm sure the game is for kids, but I'm sure I'll have tons of fun.

I don't care about the art style or it being for kids, I just wanted a traditional platformer and not an action platformer hybrid

Battlefield for sure. Nothing else is certain. Not a huge AC fan. Knack looks like a good buy, or good enough. Would like a sports game but I'm wary of next gen launch sports titles. History's shown they're always crap.

I am very disappointed you did not name this thread "Trannies, I have pre-ordered a PS4".

Save money for indies if you really can't decide on another one. There'll be a lot to play and they're almost all online oriented so lots of replay.

update

a friend played the Knack demo. Said it played like Crash Bandicoot. I never played Crash much, I was a Nintendo guy, so beyond the Crash demo I couldn't relate.
Good news is once I told him I was a Nintendo guy, he said said it played like Banjo Kazooie, so, aww yeah, Knack is now a day 1 buy.

Can't believe it's almost more a week left until launch.

So I saw more video of Knack and was left unimpressed. It's fucking GoW.
So I'm going the Lego Marvel route instead, which is definitely not platform but at least it's not God of War... which also is not a platformer.

Yeah the more I read about Knack the more I realize I bought into the PS4 press conference hype. It isn't this completely original piece with awesome gameplay mechanics. It's a fucking platformer with a cutesy mascot. Totally original!\

Sorry I pushed it over Madden but hey....You know Madden will be 5 bucks next year anyways!

Where are you reading this? I would like to get some inside scoop.

Yeah Knack looks like it'll get real boring, real fast. It doesn't even look like a next-gen title.

As far as I understood, it was created to show off how the system could handle physics in a game.
