When a gamer is choosing which console they’ll be playing on for the next three-plus years, there are many factors that come into play. Games that are exclusive to a specific console are some of the largest factors and have a large bearing on how people choose a console. If you’re looking for a new gaming console, you’ll want to know the exclusives. PS4 has some awesome exclusive games. These games were chosen based on their reviews, history with the console and the excitement surrounding the game.
Past: “InFAMOUS Second Son”

Released in March 2014, “Second Son” is the third game in the “inFAMOUS” series. Containing a new protagonist, a new city and a new story, players are put into the shoes of a superhuman surrounded by a society that hates and fears them. It received positive reviews, including an 80/100 from Metacritic. Sold one million units within first nine days of launch, making it the fastest selling “inFAMOUS” game.
Past: “The Last of Us Remastered”

Released in July 2014, “Remastered” is a remade version of “The Last of Us” from PS3. Already an amazing horror adventure game, “Remastered” improved on the game even more. The story and game-play remain much the same, with smaller improvements to certain game-play elements and improvements to the controls that take advantage of the new PS4 controller. It received very positive reviews, including a 95/100 from Metacritic.
Present: “Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection”

Released this October, the Nathan Drake Collection is a pack that includes the original three games (“Drake’s Fortune,” “Among Thieves” and “Drake’s Deception”) in the “Uncharted” series, with enhanced graphics and ported for the PS4. This is another homerun by Naughty Dog, the same developer as “The Last Of Us.” Reviews have been extremely positive so far, citing the technical and graphical improvements across the games.
Future: “Uncharted 4”

Yes, it’s another “Uncharted” game. I can’t help it if they make great games that everyone wants to play. Dubbed A “Thief’s End,” this game is one of the most anticipated exclusives of 2016 and has been announced to be the last “Uncharted” game to feature Nathan Drake as the protagonist. The game’s release date is set for March 18, 2016, after setbacks from the original 2015 release estimate.
Future: “The Last Guardian”

The only game on the list that is a new intellectual property, “The Guardian” is not a sequel or part of a series. There is a ton of anticipation for this game. Part of that can most likely be attributed to the long wait time, as the game has been in development since 2007. Either way, “The Last Guardian” has many expectations, and it should turn out to be a staple in any PS4 catalog.
