With the release of Spiderman in September, the PS4 gave another reason for future console owners as to why they must give the Sony machine a chance. There are numerous console exclusives that are being released for the PS4, and if E3 is anything to go by, the PS4 isn’t dying any time soon since plenty of console exclusives such as Naughty Dog’s Ghost of Tsushima and From Software’s Sekiro: Shadows Die twice.
Let us look at some of the best PS4 exclusives that have been released.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a From Software fanboy, but there’s something about Bloodborne that captures the most wretched thoughts lying deep within the human brain. The setting, the enemies and the gothic feel, not to mention the game’s difficulty, of course, all add up to an experience that is worth playing. If you’ve played the Soul series and are looking for a game to satisfy the same need for unrequited satisfaction, Bloodborne is a must play. The game wouldn’t cost you all that much since it was released all the way back in 2015.
2. Horizon Zero Dawn
Horizon Zero Dawn is Sony’s answer to Zelda, and it delivers in every single way. Although the elements in both games differ significantly, there are some that resonate with you for a long time. Guerrilla Games, the makers of the acclaimed Killzone series, has made a game that features machines that require a lot more than just a dodge-and-shoot strategy. While playing in the highest difficulty level, you’ll be forgiven for throwing a fit of rage after spending countless minutes fighting a Corruptor only to die at the first hit. But the feeling you get after killing a huge machine is parallel to none. Horizon Zero Dawn combines the best of Zelda’s exploration with Monster Hunter’s unique monster hunting mechanics, and it blends seamlessly.
3. Infamous: Second Son
The first Infamous game, released on the PS3, combined Sucker Punch’s traditional platforming elements that we are familiar through the ever-charming Sly Cooper series with a dark and gritty storyline that was somewhat uncharacteristic from the developer. But the game received praise nonetheless for its branching story and satisfying combat. The sequel was released in 2014 as somewhat of a launch title, and it can be labeled as a game that is same, if not better when compared with its predecessor. You can also play the game without it spoiling a lot of the first game since it follows a new protagonist altogether.
