So what are the must own PS4 exclusive games?


#28

The Last Guardian is actually pretty good. Trico is easily the most believable animal character ever created in a game. It’s a typical Team Ico game, but that’s a good thing.

I enjoy Drive Club? It’s got goofy physics, but the tracks are beautiful and the challenges are fun.

Gravity Rush 1&2 are different and fun as diversion. An utterly unique control scheme.

LittleBigPlanet 3. (It’s on PS3 as well, but is terrible on that console. It’s meant to be a PS4 game.)

Upcoming, you’ve got The Last of Us 2 and Ghost of Tsushima EDIT: and Days Gone and Death Stranding.

Well, if you haven’t played Symphony of the Night before, now would be a good time with last week’s port on PS4:


#30

So 2 weeks later and some fantastic deals, here is my backlog! D:


#31

Some great games there. I really want RDR 2 and God of War.

If I were you I’d start with The Last of Us - so good. I liked Horizon, but not as much as others seemed to. I haven’t played Uncharted 4 yet but the others were very good. I think you’re set for at least 500 hours with that pile!


#32

Yep most of the winter for sure! Lets hope for lots of work from home snow days! ;)


#33

That’s a big pile of third-person gaming!

What’s essential on the PS4 that’s not third-person out of curiosity? I’d never thought about it before until I saw your haul.


#34

First person games tend to not be exclusive. The only example I can think of for this generation is Halo 5. Resident Evil 7 and Doom have VR versions that are exclusive to PSVR I think. But the big FPS franchises are mostly available on all platforms.


#35

Eh… Not to put a damper on things, but that game is way overhyped. Just go in with low expectations for a mediocre cover shooter and a drip-feed narrative and you’re ok.


#36

I loved it. It was in the running for my game of the year and one of my favorites ever. Mostly for the characters, story, atmosphere. I thought the gameplay was good, but not the highlight of the game.


#37

I agree, but it’s still good to go in with the expectations that Cormac is talking about. That way you’re pleasantly surprised if you like it more than that.


#38

Tetris Effect is pretty good.


#39

You already have it? I’m going to wait for a sale, but I love music, and I love Tetris, so this seems like a match made in heaven.

  • Fallout 76. We can wait a exclusive 24 hours period before we can play. The PC guys are already playing.
  • Warframe Fortuna. We can wait a few exclusive months until Fortune is playable on our PS4.
  • Battlefield V. We have to wait a few exclusive days until we can play BFV. Some origin players are already playing
  • PSN. We pay for the exclusive privilege to play online. PC guys don’t pay anything.

And we get a more censored version of the games than fucking Nintendo (video is NSFW).


#41

Wrong thread.


#42

I don’t blame Sony one bit for refusing release of a game which simulates molesting underage girls given the events of the last year.


#43

Good thing that’s not anything that was being sold in a PS4 game.

Sony is actively censoring anything remotely resembling sexual content in anime-styled games on their platforms, and moving forward, they’ll be blocking the entire visual novel genre from release on PS4, regardless of content or publisher. This means, as a major example, the all-ages cultural phenomenon Steins;Gate won’t see further releases on Sony platforms past anything that’s already been announced.


#44

According to who? The idiot dipbag in that YouTube video? We have a single example of them requesting content be removed on a game. A single datapoint isn’t a pattern, let alone a prohibition of all visual novels. How can you even claim that with a straight face?


#45

How about an actual developer affected by this, plus several other examples? Note that many of the games listed further down in the article aren’t actually ports of 18+ PC games, but are actually new releases in franchises that have historically received T or M ratings in the US with no issues, and none of these games are being edited in the same ways for other platforms, including the Switch.


#46

So your proof that all visual novels are being banned is a link that lists 3 games that were edited and released on PS4, two other games in process of trying to get certified and one game that was not released in North America or Europe after five western countries banned it?


#47

It’s possible that there’s translation weirdness causing confusion with “visual novel” versus “port of 18+ PC game,” but given that many of the games being affected are visual novels that aren’t ports of 18+ titles, it’s hard to tell for sure without more publishers stepping forward to explicitly confirm such. Regardless, these are games being released on PC and Switch, and even previously released on Vita, being edited or even entirely blocked from certification solely on PS4. You also seem to misunderstand the issue, as these are primarily domestic releases being affected, not international versions, though western releases are running into their own problems, like the newest Senran Kagura game being delayed on both PS4 and PC in the west because the PS4 version alone has to have content cut out to appease Sony. On top of that, this apparent new business with Sony requiring devs to communicate with them exclusively in English is utter nonsense regardless of what games it’s affecting.
