Over the years games have become far more sophisticated and in some cases a little bit too serious. This page brings together some of my favourite PlayStation 4 Funny Bits. Because, although shooting and blowing things up is a hell of a lot of fun; sometimes it’s nice just to have a giggle.
Final Fantasy XV – Prompto’s Funny Promptoisms
The long awaited and long anticipated Final Fantasy XV turned out to be very good actually. It was crammed full of content, had a nice manageable open world and was a blast to play. It was also the first game I Platinumed (2 hours to beat the bloody adamantoise!!). However, the thing I loved most about the game was the relationship between the 4 main protagonists. Noctis, Gladio, Ignis and Prompto’s dialogue and in game chatter was beautifully done and added a real sense of friendship and companionship to the game.
Prompto, however, was just bloody hilarious. I have a playlist you can access here for all 3 of my Prompto videos, this video is where it all started.
Dragon Age Inquisition – Silly Sera
Another huge RPG with a roster of different characters. Iron Bull and Dorian certainly had their moments but the most consistently funny was Sera. The Elf raised by humans had a unique and slightly unbalanced very of the world that led to some hilarious exchanges.
I couldn’t capture my favourite for this video (you can find it here at 50 seconds). Just as with Final Fantasy XV the character interactions as a whole were brilliant and helped maintain interest in a game that took dozens of hours to complete. Here are a couple that I grabbed in my latest playthrough.
Tales of the Borderlands – PlayStation 4 Funny Bits
The 3 main Borderlands games are known for being a bit naughty, subversive and silly fun. Claptrap, shotgun midgets and a Bazillion guns doesn’t make for a particularly sensible mix.
When TaleTale Games made their version of this great franchise they captured what made the originals so good perfectly. The art style fitted, the characters were well fleshed out and it was ridiculously funny. This was helped by the class voice talent; Troy Baker, Ashley Johnson and Nolan North lent their talents to a sharp, witty script. In terms of PlayStation 4 funny bits, this is in my opinion, the most consistently funny game on the platform.
More PlayStation 4 Funny Bits
I am sure this page will build over time. Humour really works even in serious games to defuse tension. Ellies Joke book in the Last of Us was a welcome break from all the horror and brutality of that world. So just to finish off my PlayStation 4 Funny Bits page here is that fabulous moment from my all time favourite game.
