10 video games to (re) discover on next-gen consoles


Recent releases of the PS5, Xbox series, and “next-gen” consoles from Sony and Microsoft have sparked a flood of titles, at the risk of not really knowing where to turn the knob. We take stock with a selection, a good combination of large machines and independent productions.

The lucky ones who will have managed to get his hands on Sony’s PlayStation 5 or one of Microsoft’s two Xbox series they are going to want to give them supplies to run at full speed when unwrapping the Christmas presents. And it can be difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff amid this wave of video games, between truly rewarding propositions and deceptive titles looking to get on to the next generation in a timely manner. Especially since some titles already published benefit from an update to renew them. We have selected ten, among large machines dominated by spectacular and hidden nuggets.

“Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition”

Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition

Capcom / Capcom

The fifth part of this distant and very nervous rereading of The Divine Comedy, by Dante Alighieri, spring in special edition. The devil can cry is a highly stylized mortal ballet, in which chopping down demonic legions invading Earth is tantamount to mastering the art of delicately and precisely linking. If “ray tracing” technology magnifies its baroque decorum like never before, its impact on fluidity is not negligible. Our hero, Dante, is still more charismatic and noisier than ever.

we like it a lot Capcom / Capcom. South PC, Xbox Series, PS5, Xbox One, PS4.

“Spider-Man: Miles Morales”

Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Insomniac Games / Sony Interactive Entertainment

Without a doubt, THE technological showcase for Playstation 5 with this open-world adventure with Miles Morales, Peter Parker’s successor. New York under its white coat becomes a festival of particles and garlands of light. Reserved for die-hard Spider-Man fans or those who haven’t played Marvel’s spider man, released two years earlier, one has the feeling of having bonus content sold at a high price.

we like a little Insomniac Games / Sony Interactive Entertainment. South PS4 and PS5.

“Yakuza: like a dragon”

Yakuza: like a dragon

Yakuza: like a dragon

Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio / Sega

After eight episodes of a river saga, Yakuza gets a double makeover with a new hero and a transformed gameplay. No more real-time street fights to give way to pure turn-based combat, in the great tradition of Japanese RPGs. For those of you who like highly coded genre, it’s a hit.

we like it a lot Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio / Sega. South PC, Xbox Series, PS5, Xbox One, PS4.

“Forza Horizon 4”

NBA 2K21

Visual Concepts / Take Two Interactive

If there’s a sports game to put under the tree with your console, it certainly is NBA 2K21, which takes full advantage of the additional power provided by “next generation” consoles. The models of the bodies and faces of the kings of American basketball and their animations amaze like never before. The same goes for the masterful set design. Issue : NBA 2K21 He seems so proud of the technological leap that, by default, he approaches his camera too close to the field, which can affect good game visibility.

we like it a lot Visual Concepts / Take Two Interactive. South PC, PS5, Xbox Series, PS4, Xbox One.

“The pathless”

The pathless

The pathless

Giant Squid / Anapurna Interactive

The new game from the creators ofAbzû is similar to a refined view of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Small open world, environmental puzzles and a call to travel to purify the Earth from evil. He almost invented the idea of ​​”Zen danger”, since death is impossible there, even in the face of giant and angry monsters, to better encourage the player to embrace the very particular movement of his heroine. Excellent music by Austin Wintory.

we like it a lot Giant squid / Annapurna Interactive. Available on PC, PS5, PS4, Apple Arcade.

“Tetris Effect: Connected”

Tetris effect: Connected

Tetris effect: Connected

Scenario Games / Upgrade Games

The classic Tetris had been reinvented in his version Effect in 2018, where each destruction of blocks of lines produced on the screen a sound and a zen and psychedelic light (incredible with a virtual headset). Tetris effect: Connected It is put at the service of these difficult pandemic times to recreate a link with cooperative mode for up to three players, both locally and online, who must annihilate threats with a series of lines that occupy the entire width of the screen. Supplied with the Game Pass subscription, it’s essential.

Sackboy: a great adventure

Sackboy: a great adventure

License hero Little big planet, known for his level editors, Sackboy is Sony’s other mascot for kids after Astro. Sackboy: a great adventure is a 3D platformer in the vein of Super Mario 3D World clearly favoring multiplayer mode to create fun mayhem for young audiences. Although well done, its classicism does not justify its excessive price.

we like a little Sumo Digital / Sony Interactive Entertainment. Available on PS5 and PS4.




Young Horses Inc./Fangamer

As ugly as it is fun Bugsnax it’s kind of a strange cross between animated film Giant dumpling storm and Pokemon. From the beginning he shows an almost unhealthy obsession with junk food with his “Carapommes” and other “Scaraburgers”, creatures half animal and half food. From the second, he works on the inclinations of the youngest for acute collecting, during which it is convenient to observe this hundred Bugsnax, like a zoologist, to better capture them by the most disgusting and fun means. Joys and splendors of regression.

we like a little Young Horses Inc./Fangamer. South PC and PS5.
