Horizon > God of War for me. I really didn't rate the story in God of War (braces for incoming hate).

If you are so secure of what you are saying, say it! No one is going to hate for starting a debate unless you are asking for it like that or you are scared of disagreement

As for the topic: God Of War stands on the very top for me.

UltraNova211d ago

Same here, GoW is by far the most impactful of all PS4 exclusives. Bloodborne comes second then HZD.

S2Killinit211d ago (Edited 211d ago )

Yeah God of War is the best one yet for me.

Second on for me is Uncharted 4 and Horizon Zero Dawn tied at second.

NecrumOddBoy211d ago

God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn are both 10 out of 10s for me, but God of War just hits something that no other game is hit in a long time. I personally prefer the combat in Horizon. I have to give it up to two games that have a phenomenal combat system utilizing melee and projectiles from the triggers exclusively. Definitely some innovative ways to play.

zcmilano211d ago

I did say it, lol. I could have just not commented :P I made a point of saying "brace for incoming hate" because you can't say anything negative about God of War otherwise you're jumped on for disrespecting a "masterpiece," lol. Gamers are a tragic bunch, mostly.

IamTylerDurden1211d ago (Edited 211d ago )

God of War is the best game i've played this gen. I actually think R&C deserves some recognition as one of the best games the gen. God of War, HZD, U4, R&C, Bloodborne, Transistor, Salt & Sanctuary, SotC have all been great exclusives to me.

@UltraNova I haven't played it because I'm scared being too bad at it but... can you explain in a few words what makes Bloodborne so special to so many people?

mikeslemonade211d ago (Edited 211d ago )

Horizon is not better than God of War. I question that you have even played the two games. Because it’s not even close. You don’t know video games if you think horizon is better. It was good reboot for the guerilla studios but to say it’s better than a top notch Santa Monica, your got suspect taste if you think that.

It goes Bloodborne > God of War > Horizon > Uncharted. And the main reason why I put bloodborne first is because it was the most impressive while coming out earliest in the generation, and souls still has the best gameplay in videogsmes. Gameplay is most important and souls is still the best in gameplay in video games.

mikeslemonade211d ago

God of war is to Horizon as Jordan is to Kobe.

Yea it’s an opinion but the gap is that much greater. Sure you have nonsensical people thinking Kobe is better but the majority and consensus thinks Jordan is better and clearly better.

You can have an opinion and still be wrong. The point is very little people would agree Horizon is better than God of War.

UltraNova211d ago


Really hard to answer if you haven't played it even for a bit.

I guess asking you questions instead of giving you answers based on my personal experience is the way to go?

1) Are you someone who likes to be challenged? If so do you describe your self as someone who perseveres in the face of failure?

2) Have you tried other Souls games? Did you complete any of them or did you quit?

3) How do you find bleak, dark settings in video games with a minimal story exposition and no dev guidance throughout the game?

4) Are RPGs (of the more... heavier kind) of your liking?

Bloodborne is my game of the Gen right after Dark Souls 3 and GoW because it made me work on all aspects. I read every item description, uncovered every lore/story thread I could find, mastered its combat, learned every enemy's behavior pattern. It was a masterpiece through and through. All that in a period that gaming time is a luxury for me.

But like I said you need to ask yourself some questions and try the game for yourself, with some conviction!

TLOU is still the only 10 out of 10 for me.

I enjoyed almost every other PS4 and PS3 exclusive over this new God of War... and that includes the old God of Wars which I found to be MUCH better.

People only downvote because they disagree with your opinion. I disagreed because I honestly don't think one is better than the other. But it's fine to have that opinion so I don't think you'll get any hate for it.
For me I can't really split them. I just loved Bloodborne, HZD, GOW, The Last Of Us etc... I just find it too hard to split them. I love them all for different reasons. I just wish I could play them all again for the first time haha

Aceman18211d ago

Exactly I love each and every one of those exclusives so I'm not gonna put one above the other they're all great games.

DivineAssault 211d ago

I can see your point of view but God of War is best to me.. Horizon was an excellent open world adventure and was a contender for GOTY.. Only bested by zelda.. Both were remarkable achievements..

bluefox755211d ago

The story was Horizon's weak point. Horizon had awesome gameplay and world design, but the story was probably it's weakest point, if we're being honest. God of War doesn't really have a weak point, that's what makes it such a special game.

Dark_Knightmare2211d ago

I disagree I thought the story was really good with kickass,unique lore

S2Killinit211d ago

I agree that God of War had the best story but Horizon’s story was also great, and impactful.

Aceman18211d ago

It stands as one of the best for me.

Frinker211d ago

God of war was leagues better than Horizon

IamTylerDurden1211d ago (Edited 211d ago )

Funny thing is we still some heavy hitters on the way like Spiderman, TLoU 2, Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, and Days Gone. Even Dreams and Detroit are pretty big games.

Germ_the_Nobody211d ago

I like Horizon more for the open world gameplay and I actually think even the graphics are better.

God of War is absolutely incredible though.

personally, i enjoyed the world of HZD mkore than Gow, as it felt more lived in, but itis understandable as the setting for GOW mad eit so everyone was in hiding.

story though, GOW is miles ahead of HZD, not saying that HZD had a bad story, just that SSM has more experience in that regard than guerilla

chrisx211d ago

and thats the beauty of the amazing Ps4 exclusives. any one can come up with a different top 5 best Ps4 exclusives and still be right

IamTylerDurden1211d ago (Edited 211d ago )

There are so many good PS4/console exclusives that there will be many good games that don't get mentioned. It's pretty crazy that Nier, Nioh, Second Son, Lost Legacy, Gravity Rush 2, Transistor, Pyre, Salt & Sanctuary won't even get much mention. I personally enjoyed Driveclub, GT Sport, The Order, and Knack 2 as some of the more underrated exclusives.

SCW1982211d ago

1. Bloodborne
2. God of War
3. Horizon
4. The Last Guardian
5. Uncharted 4

robtion211d ago

Good list.

For me it's:
1. Bloodborne
2. Horizon and GOW tied
3. Both PS4 Uncharted games tied
4. The Last Guardian
5. Until Dawn
6: Gravity Rush 2, Persona 5, Neir, The Order, and Nioh, as runners up and/or semi-exclusives.

For multiplatforms it is The Witcher, Dishonoured, Wolfenstein, The Evil Within, Mad Max, Alien Isolation, Injustice 2.

RedDevils210d ago (Edited 210d ago )

1. Persona 5
2. Uncharted
3. GOW
4. Yakuza 0 soon to be 6
5. Horizon
6. TLG

Movefasta1993211d ago

5)God of war

morganfell211d ago (Edited 211d ago )

Nioh is not an exclusive.

For me it is
1 God Of War
4 UC4
5 Bloodborne

Movefasta1993211d ago

console exclusive included then

morganfell211d ago (Edited 211d ago )

But that isn't the question in the article title now is it...

IamTylerDurden1211d ago

If Nioh doesn't count then how manh Xbox games would count?

salmonade211d ago

Man do I love Nioh. That was so much fun.

twiggytree12211d ago

Persona 5 isn't a ps4 exclusive, it's also on ps3.

twiggytree12210d ago

^You pathetic ps4 fanboys need to start holding PlayStation to the same standard you do Xbox.
