Best PS4 Exclusives PlayStation 4 1

What are the best PS4 exclusives? That's exactly what we aim to determine in this article. Whether you're the proud owner of a new PS4 or a bonafide veteran, you'll want to play the absolute best exclusive games. Well, the PlayStation 4 has plenty of those, covering a wide range of tastes.

For this list, we've included games that are only on PS4. Console exclusives don't count, and neither do games that are cross-gen. However, remasters and other, more in-depth re-releases may make the cut. With that in mind, let's dive into what we think are the 20 best PS4 exclusive games.

20. Knack 2 (PS4)

Release Date: 5th Sep 2017 (USA) / 5th Sep 2017 (UK/EU)

Knack may not have won over the critics, but it must have done something right if its cult following status is anything to go by. Knack 2 is a much improved sequel that builds on the original's brawler/platformer core. You play as the eponymous Knack, who punches, kicks, and increases in size to defeat enemies, all while solving a variety of platforming challenges. It's old-school stuff that'll appeal to a family audience -- especially because of its fun co-op mode.

The Gravity Queen rushes onto PS4 in this sequel to the enjoyable PS Vita title. Kat is in for another crazy adventure through the skies as she falls with style across a big open world. If you played the first game, you know what to expect here: satisfying traversal, basic but decent combat, and a lighthearted story. With an array of new gravity powers and the series' gorgeous aesthetic to enjoy, this is one of PS4's most unusual exclusives, and worth checking out.

18. inFAMOUS: Second Son (PS4)

Release Date: 21st Mar 2014 (USA) / 21st Mar 2014 (UK/EU)

inFAMOUS: Second Son is set in a world where superhuman conduits walk the streets and are being detained by a shady government agency, the DUP. Sucker Punch's third entry in the series moves away from the electrically charged Cole McGrath in favour of Delsin Rowe, a younger, more rebellious protagonist with the ability to absorb powers from other conduits. The result is a more varied, and more fun, superhero sandbox with silky smooth gameplay.

17. Detroit: Become Human (PS4)

Release Date: 25th May 2018 (USA) / 25th May 2018 (UK/EU)

Detroit: Become Human is the latest adventure from Quantic Dream. It takes the formula from Heavy Rain and applies it to a near-future Detroit, where people co-exist with androids. The branching story has a crazy number of outcomes as you juggle control between androids Connor, Kara, and Markus. As with all of David Cage's creations, it can be an acquired taste, but this is an incredibly polished narrative adventure that's like nothing else on PS4.
