We have reached the end of the week, and it’s also going to be the last few days for this month. Sony’s exclusives were bombarding last February and March with Horizon: Zero DawnNioh, NieR: Automata, and MLB The Show 17. Let’s also not forget about Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix!

What is The Hub Suggests, you ask? Well, The Hub Suggests is a weekly article of recommended PlayStation (both exclusives and third-party) titles that released within the week (we will start the week from Saturday to Friday since the article will be posted every Friday 10:00PM GMT +8). It will not be based on sales figures, but from the scores on OpenCritic (both official and contributor scores).

Why OpenCritic, not Metacritic? Isn’t Metacritic the best and reliable source of aggregate scores? It’s simple. OpenCritic is updated with all trusted reviewers out there – especially YouTube personalities like Angry Joe, and ACG. Another thing is the user scores in Metacritic are rigged with fanboys/girls who give injustice to the scoring system. OpenCritic, however, aggregates fair scores especially from small trusted publications such as Pure PlayStation, Hey Poor Player, and even our main hub – Sirus Gaming – through their Contributor Program – which abolishes and replaces the “User Scores” completely.

We will also add if we recommend the game or not. Recommended games are usually from scores 75 and above based on the average of both the official and contributor OpenCritic scores; that also depends especially if we have a review.

There are a lot of interesting games released this week. This list includes Redbarrel Games’ latest survival horror Outlast II, Telltale’s new episode of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, and Sniper Elite’s counterpart that takes modern sniper games in a different level – Sniper Ghost Warrior 3.
