Have We Seen Any Instant Classics So Far This Generation?
There are some games that you play and you say to yourself, "This is an immediate classic. I'm going to remember this for a long time."
Now, of course, we're not always right about that first impression. We can't predict exactly how we'll remember a certain game, no matter how good it is when we first play it.
That being said, has any title thus far this generation dropped your jaw? Have we seen a game that would qualify as an "instant classic?" Obviously, we can't count remasters and remakes, so games like The Last Of Us: Remastered and the recently released PS4 edition of Journey don't qualify. It has to be new and never-before seen, and it needs to have that special something that sets it apart from the crowd.
For some, it's the PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne while for others, it might be the hugely expansive The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (despite the preponderance of bugs and glitches). But I get the distinct feeling that many will say, "nope, haven't seen that 'instant classic' yet." Maybe that's because it hasn't happened and we're still waiting... If you are waiting, which title do you think will be the first to instill in you that feeling of awe and wonder?
