8# The Persistence - 2018

Review78Score

"The Persistence is First Person Stealth Horror exclusively for PS4 & PSVR. The Persistence is procedurally generated. Every time you die and a new character is awoken by IRIS, the layout of the ship has changed. Every life will play out differently, with different enemies to face, items to find and power-ups to collect. Survival requires you to be stealthy and VR is the perfect match for this. Sneaking around and hiding behind cover; it's second nature in VR to just lean round or peek over cover to gain the advantage Your friends can also help out by connecting to the game with their phone or tablet and hacking into the ship's computer. Once in the ship's system, players get to control doors, freeze or distract enemies, disable traps and find hidden items to scavenge for the VR player. Be aware though, sometimes the tablet player gets rewarded if you die, do you trust your friends?"

14# The Last of Us Remastered - 2014

Review95Score

To accommodate Remastered's technical enhancements, Naughty Dog spent months developing the game, beginning upon the release of The Last of Us. For most of the game, players control Joel; Ellie and other companions are controlled by the artificial intelligence. In addition, audio recordings found in the game world can be heard through the controller's speaker; the original version forced players to remain in a menu while the recordings were played. The game's Photo Mode allows players to capture images of the game by pausing gameplay and adjusting the camera freely.
