It's only the best in the PlayStation Essential Picks sale, allegedly anyway

0

'Essential' is used liberally

There's a lot of quality running rampant through PlayStation latest sale, and that's kind of the idea. The Essential Picks event is supposed to be a sale of games that need to be on your hard drive. Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, inFamous Second Son, The Witcher 3, Red Dead Redemption 2, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order -- there's some truly good stuff here.

But, there are also some stinkers that aren't "essential" by any definition of the word. WWE 2K20 is, alphabetically-speaking, the very last game on the list. In terms of merit, it's probably also the very last game on the list. Do not buy the clown show that is WWE 2K20. (Although, at least it works again, unlike January 1 when WWE 2K20 had its own bizarre Y2K scare.)

So, I will let you be the arbiter of quality. You can decide what's essential and what's inferior. Sony is running this PS4 sale until March 3, so you have ample time to figure it out.
