Well.
Em & Han (& me) got PS4s* for Christmas. E&H are so into Minecraft its borderline problematic But they can play in separate rooms to keep the peace.

I'm currently addicted to World of Tanks (free to play on PS4) - which I used to pay on PC a loooooong time ago, but its got its armour piercing hooks back into me.

Though I'm looking to break this addiction with a used copy of Project Cars 2. Vvvvrooooom Screech, failure to observe track limits, pitlane penalty etc. I'm looking to use my old GT Force wheel for racing when I can get an adaptor to use it with PS4 - there are a a few available, just got to pick the right one.

*Late to the party, but I've brought booze.

Most games are an addiction. I've been playing Battlefield for many years. I'm currently addicted to Battlefield 4. I bought BF1 and gave it a real chance. It's just unbearable, and I had to give it up. One of my friends said it best "It's not fun, it's a grind." I went back to BF4. I guess it's an addiction. But then again, it's a better addiction than Facebook.

I completely agree with @ed lespaul that all games are an addiction. When you really like the game you want to play more and more. but sometimes you can control your game addiction and sometimes no. I found such definition on Wikipedia "a distinct behavioral addiction characterized by excessive or compulsive use of computer games that interferes with a person's everyday life". I think that it is very important for every person to realize that he or she has this game addiction. I understand that I am addicted to online casinos https://top-canadiancasinos.com/new-mobile-online-casinos/ . I can play them with my phone everywhere. However, I realize that I have such a problem and I'm trying to find a solution.

I use a Thrustmaster T300RS with the premium pedal package from the older T500RS. I've not got the wheel setup at the moment, as I've been using my desk for my PC, as I've been playing World of Warcraft after not really playing for 7 years.

Project Cars 2 and GT-Sport are the two must have racing games for the PS4, but I personally find the online racing is much better and active with GT-Sport.

I recently got myself a copy of Ace Combat 7, which is an Arcade Flight "Sim" combat game. It's utterly stunning on my PS4-Pro. Another great free to play game on the PS4 is WarThunder. It's a multi combat game where you have planes from WW1 up to the Korean War, you can also use Tanks in the game and it really adds an edge when you've got other players on the ground and in the air at the same time.

The one game I seemed to play more than any others on my PS4-Pro is Diabilo 3 Reaper of Souls+Add On Pack. It's a very easy game to just spend hours smashing your way through monsters, farming better and better gear.

Finally the game I recommend above all others for the PS4 is "The Witcher 3" . It is the closest I've ever seen to totally perfect. The two expansion packs/stories are actually just as awe inspiring as the original Wild Hunt storyline. I actually felt really sad when I completed all the content twice over, as I had grown really attached to the characters in the game.
