Resident Evil 4 (PS5)
The 2005 Resident Evil 4 is still widely considered to be a masterpiece which redefined the survival-horror genre. With this 2023 remake Capcom has set a new benchmark in how to revitalise a classic. Totally rebuilt from the ground up, the new RE4 looks and feels like a modern day blockbuster. Not for the faint of heart, but do yourself a favour and grab this right now.
Anno 1800 (PS5)
A surprisingly exceptional port of a beloved PC strategy/city-building franchise. Anno 1800 makes the jump to console and gamepad smoothly with intuitive controls, while still maintaining the complexity that makes the franchise so engrossing. The game has some texture pop-in issues but is generally graphically stunning, and the gameplay hooks will keep you playing for hours.

Matt
PlayStation Fanboy/Motormouth
Electrician by trade and yet also highly skilled at finding time to game around work and family commitments. A PlayStation fanboy with a platinum count and obvious podcast bias to prove it. Thinks DC is clearly superior to Marvel. Has been known to rant.
