I like adventure games like Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Tomb Raider and the such. I am very hopeful and excited about The last of us, But I hate the restrictions that games put on gameplay. For example, I have never liked that I have a double barrel shotgun, and I can't open this wooden door. Or I want to explore that area over there,but I can't climb over the hood of this car. I'm pretty sure that hardware and time have a lot to do with it, but I hope as time passes, this will become more apparent. what do you expect from your games?

I just mean little restrictions that annoy you, like "that's stupid...in real life, I would be able to pick up that rock and break that glass and go in that room" stuff like that.

That isn't off topic. I demand better boobies. It affects MY gameplay experience.

I want to be able to search every room with a door, and pick up and drop stuff that is completely useless to the game itself. Complete and total control over every aspect when it comes to choices. Really be able to immerse myself into the character based off of decisions I would make in the situation. Probably won't happen in the next generation, but would be nice.

I yearn for the day of true open world. Every house, every building is accessible. You can open every door, climb through every window.

Also want massive games that take days, weeks to finish. Not 15-18 hours.

I expect when the day comes that we'll be able to go in every house that it'll just be a pointless space with furniture and nothing to contribute to the game.

What I expect is smarter AI. Ones that'll really seem like there is another human player trying to kill you first. I'm tired of moronic AI that sometime stand there and do nothing or get stuck by objects that aren't really an issues. I want the enemy to strategize and flank and adapt to the situation.

I'm expecting the majority to have stories that try a bit too hard, like this gen. Other than that, more open world games with the visual fidelity of Uncharted (I suppose we got that with Watch Dogs already tho lol) and more 'detective mode' or easy mode implementations

It would be nice for more couch co-op games next gen though. Weren't enough of thos this gen imo

Like people have said, Big Open Reactive Worlds that allow Jump in/out Co-op (i really hope Co-op/team storymode Games are more abundant on ps4).
Minimal Loading, preferably no loading.
More interaction with game worlds, more destructable enviroments, (remember Rocket tunneling in Red Faction?, over the top perhaps but it would be great to see such deformation possibilities in games)
Better circles. Better trees.

Oh and those initial Game installs.. i really do hope they are no more!

Overall i just want more Online RPGs/Online community games, a few years ago i would never have considered such games but i got heavily hooked onto White Knight Chronicles1 and 2 on PS3 and while i love it, and the sense of community and teamplay that comes with it, i just wish the Playstation had more. (ff14 soon i know, which is a good sign)

Cross-platform play!

Frankly, I want and expect experiences that are truly impossible on current consoles. I don't just want carbon copies of popular games of today with better graphics at 1080p. We saw things this gen that were impossible on PS2 and previously not thought of, that's what we need. New experiences.

Let's think about a space game right, should be possible to take off from the ground in your fighter, fly up through an atmosphere that is to scale with a real earth-like planet's atmosphere, and fly into space and go about your business. No loading screens. Like the leaked footage of Battlefront 3 but a lot better. Visa versa too, with all the re-entry fireworks you'd expect.

Also just ease of use, no boundires etc. If I'm in an RPG and want to know something about a specific item or whatever, need to be able to pull up the browser (that actually WORKS btw) in game and do it no fuss. Consoles should be frictionless experiences and Sony's conference was good news in that regard.

I expect visceral cinematic 10/10 experiences with a range of pre-order content spread across twenty different vendors and day-one DLC and social features out the wazoo so that when I'm watching a cutscene a big obnoxious box can show up in the center of the screen with my friend asking "HEY DOOD WANNA GO PLAY ON MARS ON DESTINY? ;)" so that I can respond "MY BODY IS READY!" and getting a trophy for responding to my friend.

Also, ads. I expect lots of ads.

I'm expecting to explore more in games like watchdogs or a GTA style game. hopefully it grows into more freedom and more little things you can do which will give you a better experience. I love me sandbox games.

Like any game that has a gun in it...if I can shoot out light bulbs and make it dark, that is a well designed game in my book. Been doing that ever since Goldeneye on N64.

I got hooked on Syphon Filter just because of that. At that time shooting out lights was a big deal.

My favourite type of game this gen. is Bioshock, mainly the idea of semi-open world is very good, ( not talking about Arkham City ) in Bioshock the game throws you in a large section of the map and you are free to explore it as you like until you bored or finished with your objective then move on to the next one, not a sandbox like far cry or assassin's creed when thing become too repetitive too soon, and not extremely linear like uncharted or Max Payne.

same. but I think I really enjoy games like Fallout 3. I love post-apocalyptic settings. borderlands is awesome too. however sometimes I do like more linear and mindless games
