PlayStation has been attracting attention for a long time with the games it has released specifically for its platform. Many new games are on the way, including Marvel’s Wolverine, God of War: Ragnarok, and The Last of Us Part I, on the platform that hosts Ghost of Tsushima, Detroit: Become Human, Gran Turismo 7, Death Stranding, and more. In this list, we have brought together the best PlayStation exclusives for PS4 and PS5. Let’s start!
The Best PlayStation Exclusives
Developed exclusively for PlayStation 4 by FromSoftware, the company that created the Souls-like genre, which we know with games such as Dark Souls and Elden Ring, Bloodborne is one of the adventures that should definitely be experienced. The game, which is considered one of FromSoftware’s most successful works, is also playable on PlayStation 5, but runs the PlayStation 4 version of the game because it has not received a new generation update.
God of War
Undoubtedly, one of the best PlayStation exclusives, God of War is considered one of the most successful works in the game world. The game, which stands out with its unique camera angle, fluid gameplay scheme, satisfying combat system, character functioning and many other aspects, deals with a time period after Kratos’s adventures in Greek mythology. The game, which was also released on the PC in the past months, will have a sequel under the name God of War: Ragnarok in the following months, which is expected to be released this year.
The Last of Us Part II
Although The Last of Us Part II was frequently criticized on the story side during its release, it achieved an excellent technical success and made its name among the best games ever, and managed to receive the “Game of the Year” award, the game of the year 2020. It also surpassed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt with 300+ awards and became the most awarded game ever. The game, which is a sequel to The Last of Us and is about a post-apocalyptic scenario, is one of the best productions you can experience.
Final Fantasy VII Remake
Final Fantasy VII Remake, one of the first games that comes to mind when it comes to a modern Japanese role-playing game, is a very successful production in terms of war mechanics, although it hosts some negative elements for players who are not familiar with the series. Final Fantasy VII Remake, which is more of a modern JRYO, was also released for Steam recently. Although there is “VII” in the name of the game, we can state that you do not need to play any previous game to understand the story, since it is a series that tells its own independent story.
Demon’s Souls, one of the two games on the list exclusive to PlayStation 5, is the “remake” version of the Demon’s Souls game developed by FromSoftware at the time. Developed by Sony’s Bluepoint Games studio, Demon’s Souls Remake promises a new generation experience in many ways. In addition, Demon’s Souls Remake, which is described as the easiest Souls-like game by many players, can be a good option for players who want to enter the Souls-like genre for the first time.
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection
Although it was only released for PlayStation 5, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, which will be released on PC in the coming months, contains the enhanced versions of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, which were released for PlayStation 4. Especially if you are one of the players who are considering entering the series for the first time on the PC side, it is useful to watch the summary of the story of the first three games on platforms such as YouTube, since only the last two games will be released on the PC.
Ghost of Tsushima
Ghost of Tsushima, developed by Sucker Punch, whom we know with the inFamous series, puts us in the era of the samurai. This adventure, which you can experience with an impressive samurai story as well as a very successful sword fight and satisfying animations, was first released only for PlayStation 4, but was also adapted for PlayStation 5. It is absolutely one of the best PlayStation exclusives you should give a try.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, another game exclusive to PlayStation 5, was a game that featured the SSD technology of PlayStation 5 to a large extent. Developed by PlayStation’s successful studio Insomniac Games, the game can be a great option for players looking for a fun-filled adventure with Ratchet and Clank.
As players, it seems that we will get enough of superhero games in the coming years. Considering that many games are on the way when we say Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Marvel’s Wolverine, Marvel’s Midnight Suns, Gotham Knights and Wonder Woman, it is not a bad idea to jump into this superhero crowd with a successful production like Spider-Man.
Horizon Forbidden West
Developed by PlayStation’s Guerrilla Games studio and being the sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, Horizon Forbidden West definitely manages to be one of the best PlayStation exclusives. Forbidden West, which corrected many shortcomings of the previous game in the series and brought the story of this impressive universe to the next level, definitely deserves a chance. If you want to experience the story of the game in the best way, we recommend you to take a look at Horizon Zero Dawn, the previous game in the series. Unlike Forbidden West, the first game also made its way to PC.
