Ghost of Tsushima - Which I am not finished yet but I am nearly halfway through and I just love every moment of it. God that combat is satisfyingly challenging.
Dreams
Spiderman


Still working on Ratchet and Clank, God of War, Horizon, and Bloodborne but I'm enjoying them all. I'm just slow and have too many games on too many devices.

God of War
Bloodborne
Ghost of Tsushima
Spider-Man
Days Gone


Every single one of these games would be better too at 60fps. It's the ONLY thing that's bugged me about most of them.

1. God of War - The perfect game. Fantastic combat, gorgeous visuals, and some of the best level design this gen. The story was full of surprising twist and turns and they nailed the ending which is very rare in video games.
2. The Last of Us 2 - Arguably the most ambitious game of this gen, even more so than RDR2 which is my GoTG. Neil pulled off an MGS2 and did it right. I dont think i have ever been that conflicted as I was in the last 3 sections of the game including two boss fights at the end. Oh and the visuals and the combat are the best of the generation.
3. The Last Guardian - The most feels game of the generation. I was wreck after that 2 hour finale. The setpieces are still the best of the generation and the game is a technical masterpiece. The way Trico moves in the levels especially in confined spaces is nothing short of spectacular.
4. Ghost Of Tsushima - Never thought I would enjoy this as much as i did. I almost skipped the game in fact. But the combat and the world design won me over immediately and then Sucker Punch nailed the story after around the half way mark. What an amazing story and video game.
5. Bloodborne - 3 years ago, this wouldve been my GoTG but the lack of a story just makes it feel like half of a video game to me.

Bonus:

6. Death Stranding (technically not first party but neither is bloodborne so who cares)
7. Days Gone
8. Horizon
9. Detroit
10. GT7

Ghost of Tsushima
Death Stranding
Fist of the Northstar: Lost Paradise

Op asks for first party, Op himself and lots of others list Bloodborne and Persona 5. Heck even Spider-Man wasn’t first party when it came out 😛

Strictly first party I’d say

Ghost of Tsushima
God of War
Gravity Rush 2
Shadow of Collossus Remake
Gran Turismo Sport

First-party doesn't mean third-party exclusives, some of you need to work on your reading comprehension.

If is the Sony first party:
Persona 5
God of War
Tearaway
Spiderman
Bloodborne

With Persona 5 being the best by far, all the others have no particular order

Horizon Zero Dawn
The Last Of Us 2
Gravity Rush 2
God Of War
Until Dawn

It will be annoying to some but Sony really pushed the female lead this generation and I've always wondered if it was intentional or things just aligned that way.

Updated my list just this week, and am somewhat surprised:

Bloodborne. Shadow of the Colossus. Horizon. God Of War. Resogun.

Next closest games were Helldivers, Tearaway, and TLOU2.

To add a fifth, Uncharted 4 I suppose. Or Horizon. Both great, but not quite on the level of those four.

Haven't played GoT, forgive me. Waiting for confirmation of PS5 patch.
