New PS4 game

I want to buy a new PS4 game. I have been playing Call of Duty Infinite Warfare multi-player and it's good, but it is VERY frustrating.

Driving games are good.
Sports simulations are crap.
Shoot 'em ups are good.

I'd buy Red Dead Redemption 2 but it's not out. I do not want some World of Warcraft-type addictiveness that will leave me a hollowed-out husk of my former self.

I need a short hit of crashes or carnage and preferably nothing that takes too much brain power.

Recommendations please.

Battlefield 1 - much better than Call of Duty

Get the vr, add batman (see youtube review, it's insane) or Valkyrie if you like space (and serious motion sickness!)

Hmm, not getting the VR.

Battlefied 1, is it any good without having played any of the previous 27 incarnations?

I might go back to DOOM

Isn't the new Mass Effect game out next week? If so get that. Mass Effect 2 is still my favourite game of all time.

Doom (the recent reboot) is the ultimate shoot em up. If you don't have that then get it.

I've got the recent DOOM. It's OK, but I spent far too much time re-tracing my steps through empty corridors trying to find power-up thingummies and not enough time shooting baddies in the head.

Will have a look at Mass Effect. Battlefield 1 looking like the most likely candidate at the moment.

Can you get skyrim on PS4? Hooligan 1 loves that too

I think so. it looks a bit more time consuming tho. I want something I can play for half an hour, shoot a few baddies and then do something else.

I would second Battlefield 1.

Dunno why you say sports simulations are crap. Fifa17 is by far one of the best games out there. I also quite like NBA2K17.

I went for Battlefield 1 in the end. Only really had a quick look at the campaign so far, but so far so good. haven't started on multiplayer
