Hey duders! I bought a PS4 Pro a couple of weeks ago and I've been really enjoying the system. So far the games I have been playing are....

The Order: 1886

Resogun

Bloodborne

What are some other exclusive games I should look out for? Both downloadable and disc are fine. I had a PS3, so the remasters don't really do much for me. Thanks!

@xanadu: Yes! I need to add that to the list. I've never played a Ratchet and Clank game before.

@scottjay01: Well, I like to try anything at this point. I'm not sure if Bloodborne is for me just yet, but I've only played about 7-8 hours of it so far. I'm mainly saying exclusives because I have a Xbox One already, so I've played a lot of the big multi-platform games already there.

I'm not saying this as the biggest fan of the game (though it's a good game), I'd say Uncharted 4. It hasn't been mentioned yet, so that's the reason I mention it.

@ntm: Oh yeah, I was hoping for a black Friday sale for Uncharted, but it never showed up. Uncharted 2 is one of my all time favorite games, so I don't see how they could let me down with this one.

Gametop has a good cybermonday deal atm. You can get Ratchet and Clank and Until Dawn for $10 each. If you want free shipping, you can pick another title for $10 in the list and use SAVER promo code. LINK

Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir is a remake, but from the PS2 so maybe that counts?

Salt and Sanctuary, Spleunky, Abzu, and Stick it to The Man are all cool downloadable games.

Killzone: Shadow Fall, Until Dawn, (not exclusive anymore, but) Everybody's Gone to the Rapture. What kind of games are you into? To be honest, there are some good exclusive games, but most of the best games from this generation are unfortunately not exclusive to any console, like The Witcher 3. At least to me.

@ntm: I mostly play shooters and action games, but I've been trying to branch out this past year. I'll take any suggestions! I'll add those games to the list.

Uncharted 4, The Last of Us (if you didn't play it on ps3), Ratchet and Clank, Bloodborne, Until Dawn, Tearaway (if you didn't play it on vita), Gravity Rush (if you didn't play it on vita).

Do you have any other platforms that you play on? Lots of other games on the ps4, but maybe you played them elsewhere.

@colonel_pockets: Alright. Do you play/have an Xbox One and/or good PC to play the current-gen games? Exclusives are always good, but what about other games that aren't exclusive? Are you just concerned with playing the good exclusive games that are on the PS4 since you already had the option to play the other non-exclusives elsewhere? I'm just curious. Also, how are you liking the games you already have? I'm most curious about what you think of Bloodborne and The Order: 1886.

@ntm: I have a Xbox One. I've played a lot of the big multi-platform games on it already, which is why I was looking for exclusive games. Regarding The Order, I platinumed it yesterday. I actually really enjoyed it for what it is. The art is so good in that game that it was able to carry me through otherwise boring gameplay. I want a fleshed out sequel, but I doubt it will happen. The art in Bloodborne is amazing as well. I can totally see why people love it, but I'm not sure it is for me. I'm only about 7-8 hours, so I still have to give it time. It might not be for me though.

I liked Knack, man. It wasn't a classic Crash Bandicoot type of platformer like I was led to believe. It was a fairly simple brawler instead. But the production values were really good and I enjoyed it all the way through.

Sure, Ratchet & Clank might be the better platformer choice, but Knack is NOT whack!

If you like fighting games, I can now recommend Street Fighter V it's now got a bunch of free content including that crazy but fun story mode and the season pass is on discount for ps plus atm still I think? Also the fighting at its core is excellent.

Uncharted 4 like people said more of the same but I;m sure it's AAA madness at its best.

If you like JRPG's Final Fantasy XV (runs better on PS4) and the now exclusive Tales of Berseria is out in January and of course Persona 5 on April 4th.

@colonel_pockets: It's on PC as well, yeah, but it's not on Xbox One. It's on PS4, which is what I have it on. It's a great game. Also... Knack is a bore. I don't want to 'jump on the bandwagon', but I do truly feel like it's maybe the worst current-gen game I've played. On paper, it has the look of something that has heart, similar to a Pixar film if you will, and yet it has little character, and the gameplay is repetitive and not in a fun way. If it had been any longer, I would have never finished it. I wouldn't mind seeing what they could do with a sequel though.

@scottjay01: I've never been a JRPG guy, but I'll give these a shot at some point. It seems Uncharted 4 will be the next purchase due to the sheer amount of suggestions I've gotten for it. Street Fighter definitely seems like something I could get into if I had the time. I'll add them all to the list. Thanks!

@ntm: Your opinion of Knack seems to be at what most people think of it. I will definitely have to play Soma. I really enjoyed Amnesia.

@colonel_pockets: SOMA's a bit different. There's some intense parts, but it's not as focused on horror, and the horror isn't its strong suit (it's effective, but not what people should play it for). The story and setting are. I actually just went through Amnesia for the first time. I have it on Steam alongside A Machine for Pigs, but didn't finish them on PC. I just finished Dark Descent two days ago. It was good, and pretty freaky, but not as good as SOMA. I noticed the design for enemy encounters is quite similar though, but still, the focus doesn't seem to be on the horror as much. To me, Amnesia was trying to torture the player with horror, while SOMA just has more going for it. The feeling of being in that characters shoes (and how scary or sad that may be) is more effective than the enemies you encounter.

@ntm: SOMA definitely has a ton going for it - that unique control scheme being a large part of the appeal. I really loved "pulling" and "pushing" all the levers, switches etc. There is a very uniquely tactile feeling to that game which made it a lot more engrossing than anything else. The story is also pretty fascinating. The monster encounters are honestly what held it back for me the most as they're mostly clunky and get in the way of exploring that great narrative. I understand their necessity in a way, but I also think they could have done a "Story Mode" where each big monster encounter would be automated, leaving you to enjoy the great exploration and mechanical puzzles without the frustration of repeating sections of quite frankly bad stealth and cheap monster closets.

I second Until Dawn; perhaps my favorite PS4 game. Since you mention you mainly play shooters and action stuff if may not be up your alley, but if you are indeed wanting to branch out this one is a good'un.

Uncharted 4

Until Dawn

Bloodborne

The Witness (puzzle game but still interesting)

No Man's Sky (If you can get it cheap--it's not that bad)

  • Abzu - Elevator pitch is underwater Journey. Super chill and nice to look at.
  • Axiom Verge - Awesome metroidvania style game. Great music, cool story, cool weapons. Really good game.
  • Galak-Z - It's basically like playing a Saturday morning cartoon. Really fun, difficult shooter set in space. It's got lots of style.
  • No Man's Sky - It's a cool, relaxing game if you like space and are able to separate yourself from the heated discussion around it. With that said, I only think it's worth it if you're paying 20 - 40 bucks for it.
  • Ratchet and Clank - Also like playing a cartoon. Fun and light hearted.
  • SOMA - Awesome story and atmosphere. Frustrating in some parts, well worth it though.
  • Until Dawn - Awesome game to play with others watching with you on the couch. This game is way better than it has any right to be. Great replay value.
