Ugh. Didn't they just give us a CoD game not to long ago?

Thought this was an interesting question to ponder

Bloodborne. Without hesitation.

Bloodborne or Spider-man for me, but that is a damned great list of exclusives.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

I haven't played Bloodborne, Persona 5, or FF VII, but I've played through 5 of the others and am pretty far into Ghost of Tsushima (I'm on the last battle of Act II now), and my vote would either be God of War or Horizon: Zero Dawn. It's a coin flip.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

For me, personally, Horizon Zero Dawn.

Spider-Man and GOW are in my backlog... had no interest in FF7R or P5.
Working my way up the list for those I played:
Uncharted 4 was a very good game, but had pacing issues (IMO!) among other things I didn't love.
Ghost of Tsushima is excellent, if a little overbearing with some of the cutscenes/dialog.
Bloodborne is wonderfully difficult and I never got around to finishing it but I do cherish my time with it.
TLOU2 is fantastic. I have very little to complain about after some retrospection. But for me, HZD is a better game as a whole, despite them being very different experiences.

And I know it's not on the list, because it's no longer a PS4 exclusive, but Nier: Automata probably tops them all. I hate the invisible walls, and I had issues with my controller locking up, but it's a game I love, quirks and all.

edit: No love for The Order: 1886, I see.

LoU2 for me, though FF VII and Bloodborne are the only other ones I have played. But I can't imagine anything else topping it anyway.

For all its walls and very obvious budget restrictions, it really is a crazy memorable game. Though I guess I only played it 3 months ago

Same. It's really close between those two, they're both so well done.

But as a huge R&C fan, I also have a soft spot for Spider-Man which wasn't quite as good but was just so much damn fun to go exploring and fighting baddies. The same could be said for GoT now, which I can't wait to get back to playing.

Not to "pick on" MS, but I own both systems and there are literally no X1 Exclusives that I even loved. Their Halo and Gears games were really disappointing to me and Rare's Sea of Thieves did nothing for me. Forza Horizon 3 was pretty fun, I guess. Huge disparity in their exclusives this generation.

I've never been a big God of War fan but the latest is hands down my favorite game this generation and it's not even close. The size and scope were amazing. The story and voice acting phenomenal. Just all around amazing.

Just the fact that the answers here are so diverse AND most of them are like "there's no contest" shows how great this generation of PS4 exclusives really was.

Diverse? I mean............. 7 of the 9 games are third-person action/shooters.
(It's the best genre, anyway)

But yeah, actually, you're right. There's no doubt that it's been great for PS4 exclusives.

Well, diverse as in the answers aren't just one or two games, not diverse as in the genres are diverse...

Toss up between GoT and Horizon for me. tLoU was better than part 2 and I don't consider Uncharted 4 the best in the series. Spiderman loses out to the other two just due to it not being an original IP.

Hard to choose between God of War and Horizon. I'd also throw Uncharted Lost Legacy in the mix. It's my favorite of the Uncharted games.

Shit, thanks for reminding me. I have it but never got around to playing it. Will definitely check that one out after GoT.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

The Last of Us 2, God of War, and FF7 Remake are my top 3. I never played Bloodborne, or Uncharted. Persona 5 is probably my next favorite. I never did finish Spider-Man or Horizon. Ghost would probably be my least favorite on the list.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Persona 5 is probably the best turn-based RPG ever made and Persona 5 Golden is supposed to be even better. I'm going to vote for it.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

A question for the rest of you guys that use an external drive for extra game storage space. Do you find the copying part of the download of a game patch or whatever else to be a much slower process than the actual download of the file? Tonight my PS4 downloaded a Division 2 patch at around 1.5 gbs in size. The download took less than 20 minutes but the copying part is still going on after 40 plus minutes. It is frustratingly slow.

It's because of the wonky way the PS4 does updates, where it basically reinstalls the entire game and patches it (this is also why you need so much space to patch). See:

Has anyone been playing Fall Guys? Currently free for PSN+ users.

The servers are down at the moment but the game is a whole lot of fun.

They were upgrading their servers for the weekend this afternoon.
