God of War and Last of Us 2 for me. I'm shit at Souls games so never got into Bloodborne unfortunately. Ghosts was OK but it was a polished Ubisoft game and I had put too much time into the Assassins Creed games by that point
Ghost of Tsushima combat >>> Assassin's Creed combat

1. The Last Guardian
2. God of War
3. Bloodborne

Easy top 3. ND might be technical wizards with a big budget so high production values, but as actual game developers they miss the mark. SSM showed them up entirely with GOW, out doing them at their own style of game.
Naughty Dog helped Santa Monica implement Boi, the whole AI companion thing

Okay? Helping with technical stuff is nice and all, but the implementation of Atreus within the game design comes from SSM/Cory Barlog, especially Cory who fought tooth and nail to keep Atreus in the game as he is. Never felt the same connection with Ellie as I did Atreus, in large part because Ellie is disconnected from core gameplay whereas Atreus is integrated into it in multiple ways.

Knack II, 13 Sentinels whatever, and a fuckin' demo make the list, but not Horizon Zero Dawn?

My avatar is offended and refuses to participate in your poorly conceived poll.

p.s. Oh, I see you excluded it because it appeared on PC several years after release on PS4. I don't get this obsession with whether games are released years later on PC. Who cares? (I mean, besides PC-only players who are willing to wait.) These games are closely identified with the PS brand, were a major part of its success, and were exclusive to it during the most important time for sales (first few years).

Voted for Astro Bot, Bloodborne, God of War and Uncharted 4 in no particular order. Would have loved a fifth and sixth vote for Ghost of Tsushima and Horizon.

To be fair, it is bloodborne followed by God of War then last of us 2 and ghosts being pretty damn close To each other but TLOU 2 edges it imo as I feel ghosts is losing steam for me....I got to the middle section and I feel like I’ve seen it all already.

uncharted lost legacy is so good as well though. Pissed on uncharted 4 imo.

I'm offended by the lack of Persona 5 in this poll.
right?

it's the #3 highest rated PS4 game of all time on metacritic, behind only GTA V + RDR2, but sure let's exclude it!

so, according to metacritic, it is the best rated PS4 exclusive which means, for this thread, makes it the "One True King Of The Playstation 4". It wipes the floor with Sonys 1st party exclusives. TLOU, God of War, Bloodborne, Uncharted are all in the shadow of Persona 5.

Doesn't really matter, they are all the same game with with a different skin.
i was gonna argue with you but...you're right. well, mostly. Bloodborne doesn't follow the Sony formula (not primarily developed by a Sony studio) but the rest are basically the same games with different settings. It's especially true of Naughty Dog games.

Its a ps5 game, just like mario kart 8 was released on switch and became multiplatform, spiderman was released on ps5 and became a multiplatform. It was not just backwards compatibility like with most games, but a real release.
Where is Gravity Rush 2

I have added the options people are complaining about.

Everyone already voted so it won't matter, but if you are that fucking desperate to vote for Spider-Man or Driveclub, you can press the change vote button and change your votes.

Astrobot was the only game on that list that truly wowed me and made me feel like I experienced a next gen leap. Everything else felt like something not far removed from ps3 with better visuals.

Uncharted 4 Multiplayer might be the most fun game on PS4, considering it's still being played daily for both competitive and survival modes after 5 years.

God of War

Simply put, it's not just the best PS4 game, but one of the greatest games ever made.
