4 Monster Hunter World ( or Uncharted 4) -
3 Last Guardian(or Days Gone or Dreams) -
2 Bloodborne -
1 Ghost of Tsushima

DarthMarvin34d ago

What a nonsensical list. If the #3 spot could go to three different games, how is Monster Hunter World #4? O_o

SegaSaturn66934d ago

Monster Hunter is so repetitive and boring to me, I'll never understand the allure. Although multiplayer might be more engaging

Nier Automata should be in top 10.

Nineball211234d ago

I might be the only person who just could NOT get into Monster Hunter World. I didn't care for it.

zumlauf1435d ago (Edited 35d ago )

I'm sorry but Control & Horizon & Ghost are not better games than UC4.. or MGS5 for that matter.

monkey60235d ago

I'm a big fan of Uncharted and I loved UC4 , but I'd probably say I would rank Horizon and Ghost over UC4

And control is a load of crap.

DOMination-34d ago

The game seems to get a lot of love. But when it released it seemed to get scores of 7s or 8s. Now I haven't played it or followed it at all, so I can't really offer an opinion, but it is very puzzling to me that it keeps on cropping up as one of the best games of the generation.

mgszelda134d ago

Huge mgs fan... V is a let down to me. Not even in the top 20 of the ps4 era. Kind of sad for me personally when I put all other mgs games in my top 3 of their respective consoles

cooperdnizzle34d ago (Edited 34d ago )

I am right there with you. Huge fan since I was a kid playing the first one and I put them in my top 5 as well. Mgs 5 on the other hand was a huge disappointment and in my opinion is not a true metal gear game... felt nothing like the others. Especially after Mgs4 which is my favorite in the series I was so let down by 5. Loved death stranding though so he kinda just kinda made up for Mgs5

ANIALATOR13634d ago

Yeah MGSV was a total let down for me also

Yui_Suzumiya34d ago (Edited 34d ago )

For me, MGS4 is when the series ended. I'd never even consider playing 5.

ILostMyMind34d ago (Edited 34d ago )

I didn't play GoT but I agree with the others. U4 is a wonderful game.

5) The Last Guardian
4) Horizon Zero Dawn
3) God of War/ Spiderman
2) The Last of Us 2
1) Uncharted 4

These are top 5 for me.

outsider162435d ago

Oh i thought only ps4 games(exclusives). I didn't click on the website. Witcher 3 is definitely on top, heck RdR2 too.

CaptainHenry91635d ago (Edited 35d ago )

I liked Ghost a lot better than the Last of Us 2 but that's my opinion

outsider162435d ago

Thats cool. I see no problem with that.

Silly gameAr34d ago

Ghost is one of my fav games of the gen.

badz14935d ago

the hell is UC4 doing so far down the list?? even worst than MGS5?? you gotta be kidding me? and let's be honest, GTAV shouldn't even be on this list, let alone 6th!

zumlauf1435d ago

exactly. if a ps3 game is on this list then where is TLOU remastered?

TheRealTedCruz34d ago

I was very late to the party. I mostly play on PC, but eventually will grab the current Playstation typically late in the life cycle, once it's a bit cheaper and there's enough exclusives to justify dropping hundreds for the hardware.
That's literally the main game I wanted when I got a Pro. I loved it on PS3, but just wanted a prettier, better running version of it.
My favorite game on PS4, alongside Bloodborne.

TheRealTedCruz34d ago

Not attempting to trash Uncharted. I've bought and played them all. Own them on both PS3, PS4, and now, technically, PS5; but Uncharted 4 was the only one that really clicked with me. They're all fine games, but it was the first time I didn't find annoyances within the climbing and stealth mechanics.
Uncharted 4 though was easily one of my favorite games of last generation.

LordoftheCritics34d ago

I'm surprised that UC4 isn't in the top 3.
