What Was Your Favorite Game Reveal From the PS5 Showcase?

COMMUNITY QUESTION | The PS5 is coming.

This was a busy week for video games, and tomorrow, we still have more streams to cover with the Guerrilla Collective at 9 a.m. PT, PC Gaming Show at 11 a.m. PT, and Future Games Show at 2 p.m. PT. Stay tuned to USgamer as we try to round up all the weekend's announcements.

Yesterday was perhaps the biggest day of all though. We got our first look not just at the PlayStation 5 console itself, but at the games coming to the next-gen platform. So tell us in the comments: What was your favorite PS5 game reveal from yesterday?

Reveal-wise, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales was definitely a hell of a thing to put near the start of the show and, for at least a few hours, was something tremendous to look forward to. Then, we were told Miles' game is a more of an expansion—after that, Sony stepped in again to say it is a standalone game… but maybe it's more like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy?

The signs point to Spider-Man: Miles Morales being more of a side story, which is as disappointing as it is, sadly unsurprising. Perhaps we should've figured this out right when it was revealed with Miles' name after a colon, instead of a simple, unambiguous "2" to reflect a full sequel. Miles Morales is a great character, and playing a game devoted to him is still exciting knowing that it'll build on the wonderful mechanics of Insomniac's original, but man what a way to dash peoples' hopes. Here's hoping the people making it are aware enough about what's happening today and what's been happening in New York for decades to know that all the "Spider-Cop" nonsense from the last game doesn't belong in this story.

Hitman 3!!!!!! I am so excited for Hitman 3. IO Interactive is even self-publishing it, which is interesting. I'm excited to see what new antics Agent 47 gets up to; plus that famous building from Dubai seems to be a level, which in itself is thrilling because that means we all get to be Ethan Hunt now. Otherwise, the news of a new Superbrothers game delighted me, as well as Spider-Man: Miles Morales and seeing Deathloop in action. It was a solid showcase all around.
