Every game from God of War is blessed with amazing graphics. And yes! We deserve the fourth part of this fantastic game. But it seems Sony have some other plans.
They simply avoided the requirement of releasing the fourth installment in the series and managed to buy their self some by re-releasing remastered version of the third game.

Your choice would leave a great impact on their lives [or death]. What makes it a perfect horror game is that you are allowed to craft a narrative to save your characters from making dumb decisions.
InFamous Second Son:
Every game in InFamous series is open world sandbox game, much similar to Grand Theft Auto titles. What makes this series different is involvement of supernatural powers for the protagonists.
