Battlefield 1 for PlayStation 4
The horrors of World War 1 have made it a somewhat difficult period of history to translate into video game form, with many claiming it's too depressing or grueling to translate into anything fun or playable. EA DICE, however, has risen to the challenge with the latest in their long running Battlefield series. Actually the fifth numbered entry in the series despite the confusing title, Battlefield 1 weaves an intricate narrative throughout it's setting in the Great War, building on previous series traditions (team based first person gameplay, melee combat, and period accurate recreations of weapons and infantry to name just a couple) in both major and minor ways. The end result might not be to everyone's tastes, but it is not hard to see why Battlefield 1 is rated highly among both critics and fans alike.
