For people who are struggling to get a PS5, or have one but don't have many launch titles to play, then you're at the right place. This is my top 10 list of the best Playstation 4 exclusive games. This list is my personal opinion, and it will consist of only titles I've played myself, exclusive to the PS4 only so that means games like Call Of Duty, Assassins Creed, FIFA will not be put into consideration, and remastered games from previous console generations like the Uncharted Nathan Drake Collection, Last Of US Remastered, and the Jak and Daxter collection will not be included in this list.
