There are certain exceptions like It Takes Two and Hades. I thought I mentioned them in my post. It Takes Two was my GOTY. RE8 I played religiously for a month before Ratchet. Beat it 5 times and got SSS in all mercenaries missions.Maybe I'm misunderstanding this but are you telling me you can't play games like Elden Ring or other third party games because they are not made by Sony!?
But overall, I find it very hard to stick to non-sony games. I dont think it's the quality either. I think Avengers, Guardians and Halo are all very competent games, but the pacing is off, and the games just dont hook me. Guardians I stuck with the longest. Around 6-8 hours because it has excellent naughty dog quality writing and setpieces but the pacing is so off in that game i just got tired of it. Just the other day, I had a choice to play another walking/dream sequence or get right in the middle of the action in Returnal. I chose Returnal.
People dont give Sony games enough credit. Their gameplay loop is addicting and their combat is top notch. So even after you finish the game, I find myself playing them for another 50-60 hours. Just like I do for From Software games. I played nothing but Demon Souls for 3 months on PS5. Beat it 20 times. I play every souls game for 100 hours. I will be there for ER on Day 1.
