GOW2018 is going to win most of these polls if it’s included. The game was so special on every level.
 
I didn’t find the combat and exploration of GoW particularly invigorating, personally. But I’ve played all of these Sony games and honestly want sequels to Days Gone and GoT the most. I just enjoyed the exploration of DG, all the ways to deal with hordes much more than expected. Same for GoT, really cool setting and sense of exploration. The combat in Spider-Man was a little tedious. Haven’t really started Death Stranding.

Horizon gets too much praise because of the graphics. They are good. But gameplay and story are bland.

Gotta disagree there. I thought the story was extremely well done and had a lot of intrigue while the gameplay was incredible. Taking down massive robots was super fun.
 
I think my list is pretty much the opposite of the OP. TLOU 2 and God of War were amazingly great. Loved Uncharted 4 and LL as well. I think Ghost of Tsushima would be next followed by HZD and Spider-man. All great games but TLOU 2 is the best of the best overall last gen for me.
also pretty much the opposite of the OP.

2)GOW
3)Uncharted 4
Horizon: Zero Dawn
Spiderman
Ghost of Tsushima
Spiderman MM
Days Gone

Infamous: Second Son
GT Sport

I enjoyed them all though.

Ratchet and Clank and SoTC, I love them more on PS2.

Ranking them based on Cinematics quality maybe TLOU2 would be first, but since that's not how i view or enjoy my games it's going to be the game itself.
Since they are also cinematic games and are more story-driven then story quality will be big factor.
I think God of War is the best one. I think its overrated too (lol) but its the one that i had the most fun with, i enjoyed my time with it and its as an overall package the best one from this poll.

Reading this poll, i just realized that i dont really love this type of games, i mean i can enjoy them but they are not close to being among my favorites, the highest one here i rated is God of War with 4/5. The others range from 2/5 to 3/5. Ghost of Tsuchima should be the second after God of War.

What’s so great about the story? I think the setting is fine, but the story is a snoozer. And of course it just has to include certain politics that lean in one direction.

My overall impression is a thin main story with weak side quests. And the flowers and cups collecting was a waste.

The final thing I didn’t like was I didn’t think they did a good job of representing the geography. I live in the area and I never realized it was supposed to be colorado and utah until I looked it up. The new game you instantly know it’s San Francisco. So that’s an improvement.

The mystery of it all was intriguing. Why was the world like that? Who was Aloy and why did she look like someone from ancient videos in the places she went. Why were the machines there at all? There is a ton there to unwrap and they did that while leaving plenty more to find out. Yeah, I loved it all. I don't even remember any of the "politics" but that stuff falls off me like water on a duck.

You didn't like it and that's fine. Opinions.
