5. Horizon Zero Dawn (2017)
Ever since Horizon Zero Dawn was first released as a PS4 exclusive in 2017, the open-world action game has continued to engross millions of gamers around the world.
Set in a futuristic world with dinosaur robots, you play as Aloy as she ventures a planet filled with intrigue and beauty at every corner.
You can equip yourself with a number of weapons and encounter various characters (both good and bad) as you complete an engaging main quest and a multitude of side quests along the way.
There’s a reason why Horizon Zero Dawn is one of the best-selling PS4 games of all time, and if you haven’t tried it yet, we highly recommend that you do.
4. Ghost of Tsushima (2020)
Ghost of Tsushima was one of the most hotly anticipated PS4 exclusives to ever be released. Ever since it was first announced at E3 in 2018, gamers around the world were left intrigued by the stunning graphics and the promise of a huge and dynamic open world set in 13th century Japan.
Some may argue that the game was hit and miss, especially when it came to the open world activities, but one thing for sure is that the game had a beautiful aesthetic and an thoroughly enjoyable combat system that has still got people talking about it now.
Fans of stealth, action, samurai, and just good games in general are bound to enjoy Ghost of Tsushima.
3. God of War (2018)
For many, God of War would top any list of the best PS4 exclusives, and it’s easy to see why. God of War is a gaming masterpiece that provides a fresh vibe to the franchise’s gameplay and gives everyone another reason to fangirl over Santa Monica Studio’s spectacular protagonist, Kratos.
The game is great from start to finish. It has that God of War feel that made the previous instalments so good, but the shift from Greek mythology to Norse mythology gives the story a new twist.
Aside from all this, the game is simply beautiful. At the time of its release, it’s hard to make a case for any other game being more aesthetically impressive than God of War. All of this, combined with action packed combat and a plethora of content, make God of War one of the best PS4 games of all time.
2. Uncharted 4 (2016)
The most recent main entry to the Uncharted series is, in our opinion, undoubtedly the best. Everything about Uncharted 4 is fantastic. The humor, the action, the pacing, the story, the graphics. Everything.
Really, you could play this game in 2020 and still be convinced that it is one of the best games to ever be released. With a great combination of stealth and action, players follow Drake as he searches for new treasures and unearths new puzzles and scenarios.
With a great amount of content, and a nice multiplayer aspect to boot, Uncharted 4 is a phenomenal game that encapsulates everything you would want in a PlayStation exclusive. This is one that, for sure, other consoles miss out on big time.
1. The Last of Us Part 2 (2020)
The Last of Us Part 2 polarized a lot of the fanbase from the original game in ways that we think are largely unjustified. Getting mad about a main female character with big muscles like many bafflingly did seems like a total waste of time when you have a game of this calibre on your hands.
It’s a story focus game, like the first instalment, and you’ll be equally as engaged to the characters in Part 2. Combat is still expertly designed to make survival feel important. Every action needs to be carried out precisely.
Fans of the horror aspect of the original will also be happy (terrified) to know that the clickers are still around, along with some new enemies that will make your skin crawl. The game is arguably scarier than the rest and does horror better than most games dedicated to the genre.
Like the first, you can craft and upgrade your way to a better character, with some neat new additions to the system. The most polarising aspect is the story, but we thought that Naughty Dog did a tremendous job in advancing the narrative, and without giving too much away, this is one you don’t want to miss if you enjoy a rollercoaster of emotion and drama.
