All consoles have their exclusive games. As all platforms of the current generation are quite similar in terms of hardware, these titles end up being responsible for attracting players. If you are thinking about buying a PlayStation 4, for example, but you have doubts if that is right, you need to know what the puppy from Sony can offer you in terms of games.

To save you the research, in this article we bring you the 12 best PS4 exclusive games. From the surprising Marvel’s Spider Man to the celebrated God of War , there are titles for every taste. Check out what they are and understand why the Sony console is one of the best gaming platforms in history.

1. Until Dawn

Until Dawn

Until Dawn is more than a playful experience. This title brings a cinematic, intriguing and open narrative. Despite the theme already hit with teens trying to survive an entire morning to the attacks of a serial killer , is a game of survival horror very well built and needs to be played several times.

The plot is very simple. A group of teenagers gather in a cottage for a party night. Two girls, however, end up dying after falling off a cliff while being chased by an assassin. A year later, the “survivors” return to the cottage to honor the girls. What they don’t know is that the killer is still on the loose.

To survive, you have to make choices all the time. And every choice in Until Dawn interferes with the direction the story will take. This system is very well developed, inspired by the well-known “Butterfly Effect”. That is: each action taken will reflect in greater proportions in the gameplay in the future . Including providing the possibility of having multiple endings.

So you might as well save all the playable characters at the end of Until Dawn , just as you might just end up killing them all. There is also the middle ground, in which only a few of the teenagers survive the dawn of murders in the chalet and surroundings.

So if you’re looking for an exciting survival horror experience , Until Dawn is the perfect game for you. It even has special versions for PlayStation VR, which further deepens the game experience .

You should play this game if:

  • Are you a fan of movies, books and horror stories in general
  • Enjoy survival games

2. Gran Turismo Sport

Gran Turismo Sport

Gran Turismo Sport seeks to give Sony’s legendary car game franchise a new direction. It is the first title in the series for PlayStation 4 and it certainly does not disappoint. Like previous games , it is focused on the race experience itself, not on vehicle modification and customization.

GT Sport has two modes. The Sport mode is exclusively online. There are three daily runs in this mode, which will be changed each week. The player needs to stand out in these races, in order to rise in a world ranking . The lowest class is E, both in Driver Rating and Sportsmanship Rating . The highest class is A in the first and S in the second. Those who are among the 200 best drivers in the world also have a special class, the S Driver Rating .

Arcade mode does not offer the possibility to build a career as a pilot. In previous titles in the franchise, this game mode option was always present, but not in GT Sport . The Arcade is nothing more than performing individual races in the style Time Trial , for example. There is a progress system in this mode, as you will be able to stand out on the tracks available in the game.

Despite being far from the best racing titles of the 8th generation of consoles, Gran Turismo Sport convinces and provides good hours of fun. In addition, there is a world championship on the game, managed by the FIA ​​itself, which awards the winner annually with a cash prize.

You should play this game if:

  • Are you a fan of previous Gran Turismo games
  • Want to compete in an online world championship organized by the FIA

3. Journey

Journey

Journey is considered by many experts to be a work of art. In narrative and visual terms, it is a deep game, with great emotional appeal. There are no dialogues or speeches, which invites players to immerse themselves in a playful and artistic experience like no other. It is not for nothing that Journey was awarded worldwide in various categories.

In this game you control a hooded figure, who wears a scarf and is only able to emit musical notes. Your mission is to cross a desert and other inhospitable spaces to reach the top of a mountain. These musical notes also allow you to interact with pieces of fabric scattered around the scenes. Using your scarf and these fabrics you can modify the environments and progress on your journey.

Although Journey is a single player game , it is possible to find another player at random locations on your journey, always one per chapter. Both can reach the end of the path together, helping each other, although the only communication allowed between the two is musical notes. It is not possible to know any information about the other player.

With a maximum duration of three hours, Journey brings a mysterious narrative. As the hooded figure advances to the summit of the mountain, he goes on the way through buildings and references to an ancient civilization. It is a journey of self-discovery that ends in a cinematic and very beautiful way. At the end of the credits, the PSN IDs of the players who shared their journey appear on the screen.

You should play this game if:

  • Want a deep visual and artistic experience
  • Enjoying single player games with short campaigns

4. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is the ultimate adventure of the hunter of rare and valuable objects known as Nathan Drake. And Nate’s journey of exploration, shooting and dangers could not end in a more dignified way. With a significant improvement in the movement of the protagonist and in his interaction with the scenarios, in addition to having an incredible narrative, this game is one of the best of its kind.

It takes place three years after the completion of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception . Nathan had already given up his life as a hunter of valuable artifacts completely. Retired, in the company of Elena Fisher, his wife, receives the visit of his brother, Samuel. Sam was apparently dead, but returns with the possibility of one last adventure: finding the treasure of pirate Henry Avery.

With this narrative background, the player controls Nathan Drake and seeks to help his brother find the treasure. In the midst of missions that involve facing large groups of enemies and solving puzzles , Uncharted 4 provides players with challenging and fun gameplay .

As with all games in the franchise, all levels are linear. There is, however, room for exploration. According to the developers, the levels are ten times higher than those seen in the previous title. Therefore, the player is not obliged to progress in the game in the same way always, since there are several paths to follow towards his goal.

Bringing more than one game mode, including multiplayer , Uncharted 4 is a title that every PlayStation 4 owner needs to have and reset. It is exciting and profound. Nathan Drake has never been so fit and never had so much to lose. So expect all possible challenges to stay alive.

You should play this game if:

  • Played all the other titles in the franchise and wants to end the story of Nathan Drake
  • If you like omb Raider style games

5. Bloodborne

Bloodborne

Every player who doesn’t have a PlayStation 4 has certainly wanted to try out Bloodborne at least once . Although it somewhat belongs to the Dark Souls and Demon’s Souls family , it is a very different game in terms of game mechanics. Its gameplay is challenging, but it is more fluid and faster than that presented by Souls games .

This is not to say, however, that Bloodborne is an easy game to play. It encourages a more offensive grip, since you will often have to face many enemies at the same time. It is possible to jump around opponents, giving more dynamics to the combat. There are also incentives to take risks, since after losing life it is possible to recover it by quickly attacking enemies within a period of time.

There are several weapon options that the player can have. They are divided into primary and secondary, with some melee weapons gaining different functions depending on how they are used. Firearms can also be used only to stun enemies if you wish.

Bloodborne brings a plot that is both simple and complex. The protagonist’s journey takes place in Yharnam, a ruined city, the target of constant pilgrimage for allegedly guarding a miraculous medically. You control one of those pilgrims. Upon arriving in Yharnam, he discovers that a disease has turned all its inhabitants into monsters.

As a playful experience, Bloodborne is one of those games that all gamers should play. It has already become a PS4 classic, having gathered a legion of fans around its unique and exciting gameplay.

You should play this game if:

  • Want a challenging title
  • Enjoying games with Gothic ambience, with a mixture of modern and medieval

6. The Last Guardian

The Last Guardian

The Last Guardian has some similarities to Journey , described above. He brings a protagonist whose name we know nothing about. He is accompanied by a legendary creature, which is half mammal and half bird called Trico. As in Ico and Shadow of the Colossus , it eliminates everything that is superfluous to the plot, focusing everything on the relationship between Trico and the protagonist boy of the game.

The gameplay is not one of The Last Guardian’s strongest points , as it received strong criticisms regarding the boy’s difficulty in controlling and his interaction with Trico. None of this, however, gets in the way of the overall experience of the game. Using the partnership between boy and creature, the player must escape from a prison, fleeing from the guards who at any cost try to arrest them again.

The plot is basically the escape of both characters. The interesting thing, however, is that the whole gameplay is focused on building the relationship between the boy and Trico. The dynamics between the two are intense, and one depends on the other not to be captured by the prison guards where they are.

The Last Guardian is a mix of adventure and action, and is also a platform game. At the same time, it is one of those “conceptual”, artistic games, which are often made much more to be contemplated than actually understood. It is well worth your purchase if you want an unusual gaming experience.

You must play this game:

  • Enjoy artistic and deep games
  • You have already played the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus titles

7. Horizon: Zero Dawn

Horizon: Zero Dawn

Horizon: Zero Dawn has won many game awards of the year and it is not for nothing. This game bet everything on a strong, deep and complex protagonist, the hunter Aloy. At the helm of this character, the player explores an open and huge world, a thousand years after the current era, when planet Earth was dominated by murderous robotic creatures.

The gameplay features a mix of several successful combat mechanics. Aloy has at his disposal several ways to deal with his enemies, be they humans or machines. You can use your bow to shoot different types of arrows at opponents, some explosive. If you want, however, you can go into hand-to-hand combat using a kind of stick. Aloy still prepares various types of traps and can eliminate combatants in stealth.

Zero Dawn does not bring many customization possibilities for Aloy. Throughout the game it is possible to build, buy and find weapons, clothing and armor, however. In addition, there is a good character evolution system. Aloy can be improved on specific attributes, according to the player’s combat style.

The narrative is the strong point of the game alongside Aloy. The main goal is to find out who Aloy really is. Throughout the main and secondary missions, this becomes clearer, while understanding what happened to planet Earth a thousand years ago. It is a beautiful adventure, in a dynamic world, with climatic variations and day and night.

You should play this game if:

  • Interest in science fiction
  • Enjoy futuristic action games

8. Marvel’s Spider Man

Marvel's Spider Man

No one questions that Marvel’s Spider Man is the best Teioso game ever made. It’s not just because PlayStation 4 made it possible to jump from building to building with incredible graphics. This Spider-Man game gave fans the chance to delve into an unprecedented story by the Neighborhood Friend, as well as allowing them to play with Peter Parker’s secret identity.

The open world of this title is also impressive. New York was portrayed with great fidelity. We find all the classic points of comics and movies in the game. Flying, jumping and running through the city’s skyscrapers has never been so much fun! In addition, the scenario is almost always an ally in combat, since the hero uses the environments in which he is to obtain advantages in fights.

Needless to say, all of Teioso’s powers are in Marvel’s Spider Man . His skill in battle is very well developed, with the possibility of creating varied combos. The web and the Spider Sense can be used in many different ways. It is enough for the player to master the character and find his combat style.

Another really fun feature of this game is that the main missions and sidequests give items, collectibles and, of course, new uniforms. Even the uniforms created by Tony Stark in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are present in the game. Furthermore, in addition to fighting crime in New York, you have to deal with Peter Parker’s private life and all the problems it brings.

You should play this game if:

  • Are a Marvel fan and Spider-Man fan
  • Enjoying superhero games

9. The Last of Us

The Last of Us

The Last of Us is a PlayStation 3 exclusive originally, but its remastered PS4 version certainly deserves to be here. It is one of the most popular games of all time. It brings a paternal interaction between Joel and Ellie, both on a survival mission in a post-apocalyptic world filled with corrupt humans and deadly creatures.

In this third-person action game you control Joel most of the time, although Ellie is also playable in one part of the game. Both must cross the United States in order to reach the area outside the quarantine. The world has been infected by a virus, and Ellie, even if infected, is immune to it. So there are people interested in using it to find a cure.

We’ve all seen a movie or read a book with a background similar to The Last of Us . The big difference of this game is the relationship between Joel and Ellie, which develops as both survive extreme situations and limits. Often you will be left without bullets, weapons and medical items, having to hide in corners and alleys in order not to die.

The Last of Us takes the survival genre to a new experience. Survival is constant, mainly because you need to ration all the items and ammunition you have. Remembering the good times of Resident Evil 3 and Silent Hill , you never know when enemies will appear and where they will emerge from. Regardless of the level of difficulty you choose, you will see that the tension in this game is constant.

You should play this game if:

  • Enjoying games with post-apocalyptic themes
  • Interest in survival games

10. Detroit: Become Human

Detroit: Become Human

Detroit: Become Human is one of the most powerful exclusives on PS4. First in graphic terms. Visually it’s beautiful, leaving players with their mouths open. Second, it brings a plot that allows the control of three different characters, all of them being androids: Kara, Markus and Connor. And all three may die or survive the end of the game, depending on the player’s choices during gameplay .

Each character has its own narrative line. Eventually the three can meet at a certain point in the game. That makes Detroit: Become Human a complex title. Throughout the gameplay you will be faced with ethical and moral decisions quite difficult to make. In some cases, it is even possible to review them, as there is a “remorse system” in the game.

The gameplay will not demand much from the players. In Detroit: Become Human, you should concentrate much more on exploring the scenarios and interacting with the environments and with the other characters in the game. Everything around you is important and can play a decisive role in the evolution of the character you control. In addition, each of the three controllable androids has a unique ability.

Taking place in a completely futuristic world, in the best Black Mirror style , Detroit is built from the relationship between machines and human beings. The plot or plots, therefore, bring a serious and very profound reflection on the relationships between living beings.

You should play this game if:

  • Being very interested in narrative games
  • Liking futuristic themes and involving intelligent machines

11. Days Gone

Days Gone

Days Gone is the most recent title on this list. It has been developed and postponed several times in recent years, and there has been much speculation as to whether it would actually be released one day. Now available for PS4, it is a classic survival game , set in an apocalyptic world. The player must not only kill zombie enemies to survive, known as Freakers , but also progress on missions that lead to the completion of a narrative.

In Days Gone you command Deacon, a bounty hunter. His wife, Sarah, was taken by helicopter to government facilities to be treated for an injury. Deacon and a friend, Booze, stayed behind, as there was no space in the vehicle. Now they both need to survive hordes of zombies to be reunited with Sarah.

The combat system allows you to use both short and long-range attacks. Stealthy moves are also allowed. The cyclical system day and night facilitates the approach in different types of Freakers . Some get slower and weaker during the day, for example. Deacon can still use a bike to get around a wide open world. This bike can be modified with parts, so that it becomes faster or more resistant.

Despite being a beat-themed game, Days Gone is quite fun. Killing zombies in different ways and from different places gives the player freedom of action. In addition, exploring a large map without being sure what you will find on the way is intriguing. Added to this there is also the narrative part, which provides the background for the gameplay.

You should play this game if:

  • Enjoy games with zombies
  • Take an interest in survivals in the open world

12. God of War

God of War

God of War comes as a surprise on PlayStation 4. When everyone thought that the Spartan Kratos was dead and defeated, he resurfaces in a role we have never seen before: that of a father. Beside his son Atreus, the Ghost of Sparta finds himself on a mission to discover himself as a father figure, while trying to leave his past of violence behind.

Set in Nordic mythology, God of War brings new mechanics to the franchise. The camera is now behind Kratos, in third person. We continue with a linear game, with no open world, although there is a great possibility to explore Midgard and other mythical worlds of the Viking legends. Again the player will have to face gods and other fantastic creatures on his way.

The combat system continues in the good and infallible Hack n ‘Slash . Kratos can use a battle ax, a shield and even his free hands to strike enemies. It is now possible to customize the clothes or armor that the Spartan wears, as well as aspects of his ax. Atreus, which carries a bow and arrows, can also be customized.

There is a very interesting skill progression system, another element that was not present in previous games in the franchise. Having Atreus at your side gives you new possibilities for battle, since using just one button you can ask for help in combat.

God of War is an exceptional game, probably the best in the franchise so far. Impressed by the graphics, the setting, the excellent mechanics, but mainly for its deep and complex plot. It is a worthy return for Kratos on PlayStation, and is therefore a must-have exclusive for anyone who owns a PS4.

You should play this game if:

  • For fan of Norse mythology
  • Played previous God of War titles
