Sony has always put a large focus on exclusive games. When a large number of third party publishers started publishing games on the Xbox, Sony invested heavily in gathering lots of new studios to create exclusive games for their consoles.
Sony now owns a large number of high-quality studios with a lot of really good IPs under their ownership. The result of this can be seen with the lineup of amazing games that have been released for the PlayStation 4 since it has been launched. This list will contain the top PlayStation 4 exclusive games that you need to check out.
You will often see that there are PS4 games with “Only On PlayStation” listed on the box. This is generally a sign that the game has been developed by a studio that Sony owns and has not been published on a different gaming console.
Feel free to share any suggestions for games to add to this list of the best exclusive games for PS4 in the comments section below. The more games in this list the better!

A lot of video games implement a story decision system that is said to influence the outcome of the game. Unfortunately, a lot of games will lead you to one of two endings, no matter how many ways you change the decisions. Until Dawn is a shining example of how to do it right.

Your decisions will have a massive impact on the game. Characters can die and your decisions will determine whether they survive or not.
