It all depends on the choices you make.
Since the PlayStation 4 released in 2013, gamers have been able to enjoy some fantastic games which are exclusive to the console.
Sony and Microsoft have gone head to head with their flagship consoles and both have their own set of qualities.
While it could be said that the Xbox One is better for online gaming and its social aspect, the PS4 is arguably better when it comes to immersive stories.
Sony is also better in releasing games exclusive for their consoles. The PS4 still continues to release huge titles including Spider-Man.
Some of their most successful games are exclusive, which means that Xbox owners will not have a chance to play them.
Even though the rumours of the PS5’s eventual release have started to circulate, exclusive games continue to deliver.
There have been several Ps4 exclusives, some more enjoyable than others, which have been considered as some of the best gaming releases.
We have 10 exclusive games that you must play. However, this does not include games such as The Last of Us which was originally released on PS3 and then remastered for the latest console.
This also means games originally released on the PS4 cannot have a later release on a different console.
Here are some of the most enjoyable games that are exclusive to the PS4.
The Last Guardian
It was initially announced in 2009 for a 2011 release for the PS3, however, several delays prevented that from happening.
Despite that, The Last Guardian‘s announcement attracted attention due to the successes of the previous games from Team Ico.
A surprise reveal of the game at E3 2015 showed it looked quite different from the early first impressions but it looked promising for a new generation of console.
Video game director Fumito Ueda is known for stirring the player’s emotions and sense of wonderment. The Last Guardian does just that.
You play as a young boy stranded among ancient ruins. You befriend a giant bird/dog hybrid called Trico and the two of you make your way towards freedom.
The AI makes Trico feel like a living creature you need to work with in order to solve a variety of third-person puzzles.
Over the story, a bond is evident between player and animal which is similar to the companionship of a real-world pet.
While some of the mechanics are frustrating, it is a beautiful story of a boy and his bird/dog which you should play if you own a PlayStation 4.
Detroit: Become Human
Detroit: Become Human is one of the newest releases when it comes to exclusive games and it is all about the storytelling.

Apart from the detailed graphics, you have interesting choices to make which will shape the story.
If one of the characters dies, there is no game over screen, the story continues without the character and the plot will change. It all depends on the choices you make.
The heavy reliance on dialogue is what makes the game great as players will become invested in each Android and their struggles.
It will keep you hooked and you will genuinely be thinking over some of the game’s tougher moral choices.
Bloodborne is one which is considered to be a masterpiece though it is a gruelling one.
Set in the gothic city of Yharnam, it is yours to explore but be wary as you will not be alone. Almost everything will kill you if you are not careful.
It is considered to be one of the most difficult games out there and that is evident with the insane difficulty spikes and unconventional combat.
This elegant third-person action role-playing game opts for a quicker pace of play.
Although your character will constantly die as a result, it is hard to stop playing because when you eventually defeat an enemy, there will be a sense of accomplishment.
However, you must always be wary about what’s lurking around the corner as there is a range of horrific monsters.
Every ounce of progress is an achievement and that is why it is a PlayStation 4 exclusive that you must play, no matter how difficult it may be.
Until Dawn is one of the best horror games as it manages to bring together elements from horror films without ruining it.

She is strong-willed throughout and the action sequences were praised by critics.
