How come I can't vote for Knack II 4 times?


Where is Horizon?

Edit: Strange reason to make it ineligible, same goes for Death Stranding and Days Gone.

None of those are exclusives anymore. And Day's Gone will be Gone from the exclusives list in a few Day's.

There are very few, if any, "peasants" on that list. That's why PlayStation. Quality and quantity.

But Bloodborne, God of War, Astrobot and Ghost of Tsushima are the top of the top.

13 Sentinels is great too, but I didn't realize that was an exclusive.

It says a lot about how amazing Ghost of Tushima is that I see it mentioned in the same breath as Bloodborne and God of War.

Also, only 3 votes for 13 Sentinels Aegis Rim? NeoGaf I am disappointed.

Wow, the result of this poll is unexpected. I thought for sure God of War would be seen as the pinnacle of what Sony had to offer last gen. Ghost of Tsushima and Bloodborne were great, don't get me wrong, but God of War kinda took it to the next level for me.

If one of those is the True King and the rest are peasants.....Than it's a good time to be alive.

Where's Spider-Man?
Yeah, a couple of games missing from that list.

"Which PS4 exclusive is the best!?"

*Doesn't list every PS4 exclusive*
*Doesn't list games released on PC*
*Ignores that Sony is aiming to bring more titles to PC, many of whom are on this list*
*Lists demo of unreleased game*

Better luck next time, I guess.

God of War? Seriously? God of War is a good game, but its entire premise gets revealed in the first 15 minutes. There's no twist to the story at all, it's like a big game with only one objective that never changes.

Days Gone, silly reasoning to remove it.

On that list I'd go Infamous Second Son.

I went with Astro, The Last Guardian and Bloodborne. I'm not really a big fan of God of War. I find it massively overrated and wonder how I don't see what everyone else does as I usually agree with the general consensus on a lot of things.

The Last Guardian is the only game in who knows how long that triggered a massive emotional response from me. It's a beautiful game and I'm glad I waited to play it at 60FPS on PS5.

Bloodborne is one of the greatest PS4 games too, but it's awful performance and chromatic aberration (yuck) offend me. It needs a PC release to shine, but makes the list despite performance being trash. It shows how great the game truly is.

Astro Bot is the best VR game I have ever played and and one of the few games in recent memory where it felt I was experiencing games in an entirely new way. It just wouldn't be the same without VR contextualising your presence in the game world through gameplay.

Ratchet and Clank ... was just fun. Better at 60fps now.

I love uncharted, God of War, ratchet and last of us ii. I had to vote for last of us because God of War wasn't a complete game.
Amazing game, still 9/10, would have been 10/10 had they finished it.

Voted for God of War, P.T., Ghost of Tsushima and Uncharted 4.

Soft spot for Infamous: Second Son, Lost Legacy is extremely underrated, and where the heck is Spider-Man?

Objectively however, best games on PS4 are Bloodborne and God of War.

He's right though, this is about exclusive software and those are not exclusive to PS systems anymore.
It also makes for more truthful and accurate results.

Voted Lost Legacy instead of UC4 as it is the better game.

Voted God of War because of its story and spectacle.

Voted Last of Us 2 because of its sheer technical superiority.

If I had to pick one, it would be TLOU2. The convoluted story and excessive runtime can be forgiven in light of its unmatched technical prowess.
