The PlayStation 4 has been out for quite a while now but it’s still a worthwhile purchase even to this day. With rumors and talks of a PlayStation 5 coming soon, some may be tempted to wait it out and save for the next big console. We say, why wait? The next system won’t be until at least a year from now, so instead of waiting, there are quite a number of fantastic exclusive games that the current system has to offer.
Here are, in no particular order, some of the best exclusive titles you can get for your brand new PlayStation 4!
God of War
2018 Game of the Year. There’s really not much to say about how good this game is. A complete departure from the hack and slash games of the past, this outing tells the story of Kratos and his son Atreus as they go on a journey of discovery, fatherhood, and much more. Play this game by any means necessary.
Your friendly neighborhood web slinger finally gets the game he deserves and this outing will clearly set the bar for all future spidey games. Apart from the fantastic narrative which pits Spidey against the Sinister Six, this game nails down the web swinging mechanic right on the button, allowing for moves as seen from the movies and comic books!
Horizon Zero Dawn
Part Monster Hunter, part Assassin’s Creed, pure girl power! Horizon Zero Dawn is the massive hit from Guerrilla Games, makers of the Killzone series. HZD takes you on a journey through a mechanical / pre-historic world with giant monsters and fancy weapons at your disposal.
Detroit: Become Human
The latest from Quantic Dream, Detroit: Become Human follows the narrative driven gameplay popularized by earlier games like Heavy Rain. It tells the story of the Android revolution and their takeover, but also brings to light the possibility of Androids being able to think for themselves. It has received mixed reviews but is still an exclusive you should not miss.
Notable Mentions – Until Dawn is an immersive (and quite scary!) experience as well.
Love some punishment? Look no further than Bloodborne. Sekiro has been released more recently, but Bloodborne remains a classic that every Soulsborne fan should play.
Notable Mentions – Nioh is also a similarly fantastic and fast paced Soulsborne game.
The Last of Us Remastered
First released in 2013 and eventual winner of the Game of the Year award, The Last of Us is a triumph in gameplay and storytelling. Considered as one of the greatest games ever made, this remastered version contains all additional content released in an updated high definition package that deserves a playthrough by everyone.
Notable Mentions – Days Gone is also a great game that’s unfortunately hobbled by some gameplay issues.
Arguably one of the best RPG franchises, Persona 5 is an epic adventure worth at least 80 hours and is even good enough for another playthrough! In this installment, you take control of the Phantom Thieves, a group of high school students that aims to cleanse society of their evil ways! Fantastic art direction and a superb soundtrack round up this release that is a sure buy for RPG lovers.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
Nathan Drake has come a long way and with Uncharted 4, his journey comes to an end. With breathtaking visuals and an epic adventure, join the gang as they uncover the secrets and treasures of the notorious pirate Henry Avery, crossing paths with an army that will stop at nothing to get there first.
Astro Bot Rescue Mission
PSVR love this time around! Astro Bot Rescue Mission is a charming platformer that puts your PSVR set to good use. Receiving positive reviews across the board, this game, although quite short, is a fun filled experience that has enough replayability to keep you coming back for more.
We’d definitely put in Death Stranding and The Last of Us 2 here but they’re not released yet, so be sure to watch out for those too! Got some other games to add to the list? Let us know your picks for the top PS4 exclusives!
