PlayStation Plus: Free Games for May 2016 #PlayStation


Sony has announced the free PlayStation Plus games for May, including Tropico 5 and Table Top Racing: World Tour for the PlayStation 4.

Quote:
Our team is thrilled to present your free PS Plus games for May on PS4! Satisfy your desire to be the dictator you always wanted to be, or challenge your friends to relentless combat races in next month’s lineup.

First up is the island dictator sim Tropico 5, featuring the long-running virtual dictator, El Presidente! Tropico 5 is a full-fledged city-building game based on the fictional island nation of Tropico. Inside this not-so-subtle parody, El Presidente guides and directs the everyday life of his beloved Tropicans using a firm grip and ridiculous edicts, all presented with a heavy dose of tongue-in-cheek humor.

And Table Top Racing: World Tour on PS4 is a high-octane combat racer from Nick Burcombe, the co-creator of PlayStation all-time classic Wipeout. Table Top Racing: World Tour is a total reinvention of the Table Top Racing universe, bringing micro combat-racing to a truly next-gen audience for the first time.

For the rest of the free PlayStation Plus games, read on.
  • Bionic Commando Rearmed 2, PS3
  • God of War: Ghost of Sparta, PS Vita
  • LocoRoco Cocoreccho!, PS3
  • Switch Galaxy Ultra, PS4, PS Vita
  • Table Top Racing: World Tour, PS4
  • Tropico 5, PS4

Tropico 5 is a good game on PC. I never tried the PS4 version, not sure how the controls are. It's worth a look though.

Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 is complete crap. Blech!

why are you complaining about a "free dictator simulator." and a "murder simulator?" aren't all first person shooter games "murder simulators?"

Most FPS games cast you in the hero role regardless.

No one should want to be in the role of dictator, just like many people object to outright murder simulators, which is a different context from war simulators where the ethics aren't so one-sided. Even then, it's very controversial to shoot the unarmed, and many games prevent you from committing simulated atrocities.

Why? This sounds like something Anita would say.

Yah, Anemone I'm probably not as conservative as the other guys on here, and heck, if you get me fired up I may even go to a bra burning event, but I played Tropico 4 and was in no way not enjoying the game because I was "emulating" a dictator. It's just a game, and a solid one at that, that had me focus on resource management and city building. I never really thought about, or cared about, the dictator role much. Even if I did, I have a keen and firm understanding that I don't support dictatorships (intentionally at least) and am not a dictator, so I wouldn't sweat it.

It's right there in the marketing in the OP:

No one should want to be a dictator.

I do realize my enjoyment of such a game is ruined by my strong stance against government. So if you can still enjoy such a game, feel free.

I imagine that someone who has seen such horrors firsthand might recoil at the idea of 'it's just a game' as if playing the role of a dictator should be considered socially-acceptable.

Would you suggest a trigger warning to make you happy?

Let me know when you're whining about games that allow players to commit violence... you know, such horrors many have experienced firsthand.
