As someone who has always been (very, very close to) exclusively a single-player game guy, I would say that it is worth the cash. I have probably sunk around 20 hours or so into this game over the past 4 days and am enjoying the heck out of it. I have to say, though, if you have friends to play it with - or meet people that you can chat with - it is infinitely more enjoyable. I assume that is a pretty common thing in multiplayer games? I don't know... having only played a wee bit of Mass Effect and Assassin's Creed multiplayer before this.

I got both at launch and have played way more Xbox One than PS4. I have only played Knack, Contrast and a little bit of Killzone and Resogun on PS4. I have played probably a dozen games to completion on the Xbox One. I based my decision largely on the fact that my main previous console was the 360 over the PS3.
GTA IV. First played it this summer as prep for GTA V. Man, this game does not hold up at all. I found myself unbelievably bored while playing it. I found next to nothing about it redeeming in any way.
I happen to be of the opinion that most racing game series have a tendency to improve as they go along (whether or not huge changes are made in each increment), despite what attachment one may have to something due to nostalgia. Some of these lists crack me up. It is rare that an older version of a game in a racing series seems better to me than the most recent version. The most recent Forza and NFS games are an exception to this rule.
For me, it largely revolves around how much enjoyment I get out of exploring the environments that the collectibles are in. I've always loved searching for collectibles in the AC games, and I found myself doing a lot of collecting in Tomb Raider, the Arkham games, and Saints Row IV recently. I chalk this up largely to the fact that the actual locomotion in those games is fun. GTA V - as others have mentioned - did not make me want to collect anything. I find getting around in that world to be tedious. Also, a map showing where the collectibles are - whether you have it from the start or acquire it at some point in the game - makes it more likely for me go get them.
