In a few short months, we’ll be moving into a new console generation with the Playstation 5. I’ve had a love/hate relationship with my old PS4 (before it broke anyway) and I had a hard time deciding on 5 Playstation exclusives since I disliked a good number of them. Here are my top 5 Playstation 4 games of this generation.
6. Tokyo Xanadu EX
My friend Bradley (also known as Trash on Twitter) is the reason why I caved and bought this game and I’m really glad I did. It’s fantastic and told a really good story too. It’s sort of like Persona, but without the social links (thank god even though I’m atheist) and action-based gameplay over turn-based. I really miss playing this on my PS4 and I even considered double-dipping on PC.
5. Ni No Kuni 2
Before you say, “THIS ISN’T A EXCLUSIVE!” it technically is. Ni No Kuni 2 is still exclusive to the Playstation 4 console and is only available on PC which is not a console. Xbox and Switch don’t have this game (yet) and so… it fucking counts.
Ni No Kuni 2 was fantastic and I prefer it to the first one. I know that’s an unpopular opinion,
This is the best Spider-man game ever made and I don’t make that statement lightly. I’ve played them all. Insomniac Games knocked it out the park with this game and Sony was very smart for buying them. Spider-man has fantastic gameplay, told a really good story, had memorable characters, etc. I can go on, but I think you get my point. If you’re a PS4 owner buy this game.
3. Street Fighter V
One thing I LOVE is fighting games. You’ll see Killer Instinct pop up on my favorite Xbox Exclusives list somewhere. Street Fighter V is one of, if not my, favorite fighting game this generation. And, once again, I don’t make that statement lightly because I’ve played a LOT of fighting games this generation. It’s one of my favorite genres in gaming and has been a huge part of my life. Street Fighter V is fantastic and is very underrated in my opinion.
2. Persona 5
I had a really hard time choosing between this game and the next one on my list. This is not Persona 5 Royal. I haven’t played that one and probably never will because I no longer own a PS4, but I did play the living shit out of Persona 5 and it ended up being on of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had in gaming. I love this game and the fact that Atlus published Persona 4 on PC means I might just play this gem again someday.
There is no other answer I would accept other than Bloodborne when it comes to the topic of best Playstation exclusives. This game is a fucking masterpiece and is the reason why I eventually caved and played it (4 years later) on my PS4. Bloodborne was the first game I platinumed on my PS4 and is the one I played the most. This game is incredible and is one of a few games that I really miss playing on PS4.
And that’s it. That wraps up my list of best PS4 games of this generation. I know I’m missing a LOT of exclusives that people love here, but I honestly don’t care. This is MY list and these are MY favorite games on the platform. What are your favorite PS4 games?
