Huge backlog but got some PSN bucks for Xmas

I got some money for PSN for Xmas and need help deciding how to use it.
I’ve pretty much decided I’ve got to get Ratchet since I’m a fan it’s supposedly THE showpiece game.

However, I want to pick up one more game since there’s a sale.
I’m considering Ghost of Tsushima since I never played it on PS4, but would it be a waste of time now?

I’m also considering Deathloop since it got a friggin 10/10 and it’s half off.

I’m also thinking about Returnal because hype, but I’m afraid I’ll get bored because it’s too damn hard.

I already have Miles Morales, and I’m working on playing TLOU2 and Death Stranding.
I don’t own any purely PS5 games besides Miles, you could call it that.

Anyway, help?

Does this thread need a poll?

Is Demon's Souls on sale?

Don't bother with Deathloop, it will bore you more than Returnal would.

I’m afraid of Demon’s Souls. Why it’s not listed.
I owned Bloodborne on PS4 and basically hated it.

Edit: it’s extremely not on sale.

I just finished Psychonauts 2 and while Ratchet & Clank looks much better i think Psychonauts 2 is the more entertaining game. Just a suggestion. Not sure if it is on sale but it was when i picked it up.

Why would GoT be a waste of time? Awesome game and it got a patch for PS5!

Choose Returnal over Deathloop! It is my GotY.

You should also consider Demon's Souls!

I think you should watch Youtubevideos and decide. Some People on GAF with oneliners won't help you.

Watching YouTube videos was making it more complicated. I require a good old fashioned GAF Hivemind Consensus.

Save your money and finish Death Stranding, it’s great. Otherwise buy Ghost of Tsushima.

I’ll get to it when I can. Just gotta use my money while the sale is on.

I just finished Psychonauts 2 on XSX. It was fantastic.
I made the thread with the intention on getting a consensus if GOT still “holds up” or whether I should invest in a true PS5 game now.

Looks better than ever on PS5 with dynamic 4K resolution and 60 fps in addition to haptic feedback and the use of adaptive triggers. A must play if you haven't done so!

OP seems to hate more challenging games so why not recommended the one thats piss easy? PS I loved Bloodborne.
I think this conclusion is weird since these are vastly different games. Just because it is easier doesn't mean he will like it.

From the ones you listed, I'd say get Ghost of Tsushima. It's a beautiful game and comes with the expansion, you will have lots of content.
I loved Returnal but I'm not sure if I would recommend it because of the difficulty. EDIT: Just saw it isn't on sale, lol
Deathloop, I really liked it! IMO it isn't as hard as Returnal. And if you have played Dishonored that can give you an idea of what to expect gameplay-wise and how to approach the levels.

This is probably the one time I wouldn’t recommend getting Returnal for the time being.

I went directly from Returnal to R&C: Rift Apart and the gameplay in Ratchet felt kinda slow. The guns, while creative, didn’t feel as good to shoot by comparison. They are both third-person shooters, but Returnal is so responsive and fast that it could possibly dull your experience with Rift Apart. Gameplay-wise at least; the visuals in Rift Apart are still going to impress.

That’s what happened to me anyway. So I’d recommend to get Returnal after you’re finished with Ratchet, for a more intense third-person shooter.

Ghost of Tsushima and Death Stranding seem like good choices if you want to mix it up with something completely different than R&C.

If you love shooters Far Cry 6 is at $35 which is a steal. Bought the gold edition for $59.

I’m in the same boat. I currently have so many great games in my backlog that I’m just going to save my voucher for Horizon FW.
I don‘t think you can go far wrong with GOT though. Hope you enjoy it.

So I need to purchase the PS4/PS5 bundle, but I only need to download the PS5 version if I’ve never played the PS4 version right?

Ghost of Tsushima is awesome, and on PS5 it's even greater with instant loading time, 60 fps. The ikki expansion is a solid and gorgeous 10 hours addition.

thinks Halo Infinite is a new graphical benchmark
The thanksgiving sales were great, the Christmas sales are hit or miss they still could be cheaper. Ratchet is one of the few games that in the end is a $20.00 game.
 
Ghost of Tsushima is a must play, but if you're playing Death Stranding and TLOU at the moment, then I suggest you play Returnal as a "snack" before Ghost. That way you won't get staled with the typic Playstation first party style games and you'll appreciate them better.
Returnal is pretty hard game but the combat is just so good.

I also gave up on Bloodborne way back but I became a From Software fan because of Demon's Souls Remake.
