I was a much more passionate gamer when I was younger, but I still felt a thrill and crazy anticipation while watching the PlayStation 5 reveal video. There’s no doubt in my mind that I’ll be scraping together my pennies and getting one as soon as I can.

As for the games I’m most excited about… Let’s do a personal top five:

  1. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart - I’ve loved every one of these incredible, silly, moving games since the very first one. I have much sentimental value attached to them, so that’s surely affecting things here. Still, this one looks like a blast. I‘m intrigued by the portal mechanic they’ve got going. I’m so excited for this one.
  2. Spider-Man: Miles Morales - This is sure to be more of a Spider-Man 1.5, but I’m still all in. I can’t recall any other game in recent years that brought me such intense delight. I’m looking forward to web swinging again soon.
  3. Horizon: Forbidden West - Zero Dawn was a jaw-dropping experience for me. The fantastical but still very real world that was created still boggles my mind. This new one looks to top it in so many ways.
  4. Deathloop - I wasn’t expecting anything like this fascinating game. I’ve always been a sucker for games that mess with time in creative ways (like Prince of Persia: The Sand of Time). Deathloop looks to be inventive and a heck of a lot of fun.
  5. Project Athia - I don’t really know what the heck was going on with this one, but color me super intrigued. It looks fast-paced, exciting, and surrounded by a hefty dose of beguiling mystery. I’m looking forward to seeing this one develop.

I’ve always loved the PlayStation system, so I was sure I’d be looking forward to this new generation no matter what. However, I was still blown away with how amazing the games looked. I’m also a huge fan of the appearance of the new console. While the new Xbox definitely looks like a capable machine, the PS5 looks to be both a technical powerhouse and something I would actually feel proud to display in my home.

I can’t wait for it!
