The Playstation 4 exclusive’s critical acclaim hasn’t been its only success either — Ghost of Tsushima sales have exceeded expectations as well, with Sony reporting that over 6.5 million copies of the game have been sold alongside Thursday’s announcement of a Ghost of Tsushima movie was in the works with Sony Pictures and John Wick director Chad Stahelski.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
