For the second list in our series of countdowns highlighting the best, worst and most noteworthy of the console generation gone by, we’ve decided to stop procrastinating and tackle the big question; the one that’s been a topic of discussion for an army of gamers trapped in reverie at the wonders that the previous seven years have brought: What are the absolute best PlayStation 4 exclusives?
This is without doubt, the toughest list of the series. There’s no question that Sony has trampled the competition when it comes to top notch console exclusives, but after arduous contemplation, ladies and gentlemen – we have that list. Before we get into it though, there’s a few things we should note to make sure we’re all on the same page:
- We won’t be including remakes or remasters on this list, we’re talking brand new games only.
- For clarification, we’re talking console exclusives, so while some of the games on this list may have been released on PC as well as PS4, they still make the list as long as they’re not available on any games console other than PS4.
- If you notice we’ve omitted some of your favourites or titles usually seen at the top of countdowns of this ilk, well odds are it’s due to one of two explanations: Either we loved it but not quite enough to make the top five or we don’t believe those games deserve to be near a list of the best the generation has to offer. If you check out our list of ‘great’ games that…aren’t so great you may just find your answer.
OK, is everyone clear? Good, let’s dive in.
