Check out the next wave of PlayStation hits set to break cover in 2014.
We've just had a spectacular year of gaming, with everything from the gut-wrenching (The Last of Us) to the near limitless (Grand Theft Auto V) hitting PlayStation 3. We also lost ourselves to the innovative charms of PlayStation Vita games such as Tearaway as well as indie gems including Spelunky. Oh, and PlayStation 4 launched, too.
Yet the production line from the most creative developers in the video games industry is only set to crank up for 2014. Here are ten of the brightest prospects you really shouldn't miss.
What is it? A finely tuned racer where everything you do on the road earns rewards for your team. Winning isn't necessarily about crossing the line first – you'll always have the chance to come away from a challenge with something for your club.
Why it should be on your radar: The development team at Evolution Studios has had a hand in some of the best racers of recent years, including the MotorStorm series. So as well as spectacular locations including Scotland and Norway, you can be sure the driving itself will whiten your knuckles.
inFAMOUS: Second Son
What is it? A thrilling tale of a young man with superhuman powers, Delsin Rowe, trying to evade a government agency dead set on eradicating him and those like him.
Why it should be on your radar: The city of Seattle, little explored in video games, is both front line and playground in this comic-book inspired adventure. And Delsin is the perfect guide.
What is it? The game that turns an entire city into your weapon. As brilliant hacker Aiden Pearce, you can use the hyper-connected city of Chicago against those who hurt your family.
Why it should be on your radar: Because you can control everything – hijack more than 65 vehicles, manipulate communications, even hack into rival players' missions.
MURDERED: SOUL SUSPECT
What is it? A detective story with a neat twist – as cop Ronan O'Connor, you're investigating your own murder.
Why it should be on your radar: As well as using your ghostly powers to uncover the clues behind your demise, you'll need to ward off demonic spirits in the world known as Dusk.
The Evil Within
What is it? Grisly and chilling, it's the story of a police detective sent to investigate the scene of a mass murder, only to find a terrifying entity lurking in wait for him.
Why it should be on your radar: The mastermind behind Resident Evil, Shinji Mikami, is adding his horror know-how to the game as its director.
What is it? A science fiction classic in the making. In the last safe city on Earth, you must team up with other players to take on bandits and, ultimately, the massive sphere known as the Traveller hovering above the planet.
Why it should be on your radar: Bungie is a developer with considerable expertise in creating gobsmacking, futuristic worlds full of possibilities. Destiny is the team's most ambitious title yet.
What is it? A surreal tale of children's fantasies and fears. By popping the balloons carried by Baby, you can alter the mood of the game to solve puzzles.
Why it should be on your radar: Game director Massimo Guarini previously worked on twisted trio Killer7, No More Heroes and Shadows of the Damned.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
What is it? The return of the iconic Snake in an '80s-set espionage thriller, which promises open-ended gameplay and a deadly threat to worldwide security.
Why it should be on your radar: The PS4 version of the game features the exclusive Déjà Vu mission. Look out, too, for the downloadable prequel, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.
(PS Vita, PS3)
What is it? The sequel to Rainbow Moon, so expect more sumptuous pixel-sprite visuals, an incredibly deep and rewarding combat system and far more besides.
Why it should be on your radar: The game stretches across two parallel worlds – so given that Rainbow Moon had over 100 hours of gameplay, the possibilities here are vast.
