Horizon: Zero Dawn, Death Stranding and the Quantic Dreams games were the first major titles to come to us exclusively from PS4 to PC. Luckily, they won't be the last ones as Sony have announced they are going to release more of their PC exclusives in the future. And while their corporate phrase "We will explore the possibility of expanding our games to PC" sounds strange, the sales success of the above projects speak for themselves. While we shouldn't expect PS5 exclusives to hit PCs, as they should keep the new console alive, Sony has a catalog of PS4 games that begs for the warm embrace of the PC. We've put together the PS4 games we want to see on PC and prioritized them.
Shut Up and Take My Money: Mandatory Releases
The following games are so beautiful that one of their announcements will make the PC boyars really happy, as this is the best thing in the Sony catalog.
The Last of Us and The Last of Us Part 2
The Last of Us is one of the few games that correctly attaches importance to digital assassination. Hand-to-hand combat is a frantic struggle for survival. You don't just hit the target, grab the ammo and move on: you brutally beat your enemies to death. Plus you come across one of the most touching stories in video games in general.
But if The Last of Us is a relatively safe tale of an apocalyptic journey with emotional weight, then Part 2 focuses on the themes of hatred, violence and mourning throughout most of its history. The ambitions of the second game ultimately ruined it, which is why the game can either be loved or hated.
Combat Loop gives you tons of tools to ambush, break away, lick your wounds, and come up with a better plan. Its unforgiving high standards of graphics, sound, and animation make violence more important than any other game.
God of War
The best game of 2018 about the fate of the grumpy god of war, on whose shoulders the hardest test fell - raising his son. It has been hailed as one of the best stories ever told during the console's lifetime and is arguably the most anticipated game of all. Not even that, of all the games about fathers and children, this is the best game about bad fathers and children.
Bloodborne combines gothic horror with Lovecraft elements to create a dark and unforgettable world full of mad scientists and raging deities. The combat system requires you to take an aggressive approach to combat, where you can die from a couple of hits.
As the world plunges into madness and the plot eventually unfolds, an unusual vision of Bloodborne becomes apparent - a game you'll be thinking about for years. It is so rich in detail that it takes several playthroughs to appreciate it. This is simply one of the best souls-borne games ever made and deserves to be on PC.
Shadow of the Colossus
Shadow of the Colossus mesmerizes with its melancholic open world, where there is practically nothing but huge, lonely locations. However, the main thing in this game is the boss battles, which in themselves almost seem to be separate levels.
You climb them, kill them, and then mount your horse to find the next target. You are always moving towards the next incredible meeting. Colossi are often referred to as Zelda's inside-out dungeons. Defeating every giant is exciting and tragic.
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
This is a vibrant, dynamic and atmospheric adventure with stunning environmental designs and an intriguing mystery story. This is the game from Naughty Dog that will impress you primarily with its peppy spirit.
If the Batman: Arkham series showed that comic book games can be serious, then Marvel's Spider-Man took this idea to perfection. She was able to give us the original and best Spider-Man story in games in an open, sophisticated Manhattan with the classic sinister six as antagonists.
This is the best comic book game to date and only Marvel's Avengers can compete with it. However, even it falls short of the high standards of this PS4 exclusive we want to see on PC.
Ghosts of Tsushima
There are not many games in which you can capture the cinematic cruelty of a wandering samurai, entering into intense duels with bandits, ronin and bloodthirsty generals. Tsushima Island is huge, colorful and dangerous, and it's easy to get lost while exploring.
This game was so inspired by samurai movies that you can play it in black and white "Kurosawa mode". Given the surprising rarity of good samurai games, Ghost of Tsushima will be the cherry on top on PC, especially on a powerful graphics card.
A group of friends visit a very large isolated house - many deaths follow. Until Dawn is a video game-style slasher with recognizable actors, and it fully embraces the genre's tricks. If you think you can outsmart serial killers, this is a great place to test your theory.
Would be great: releases we'd love to see
The following games are very good and we would love to see them, however we would not prefer them to the projects listed above. However, they come in second place.
Killzone Shadow Fall
Killzone Shadow Fall was the starter FPS to properly showcase the PS4's computing power. The game had enough drawbacks, as well as too much kitsch in the direction of the coolness of the new controller, but still it launched a new generation.
The Last Guardian
An atmospheric adventure from the creators of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. It puts a lot of emphasis on your relationship with Trico - a giant creature that infuriated more than one gamer, but this project is worth losing for the sake of the setting. It seems the developers have a real talent for creating lonely, melancholic, but so beautiful worlds.
This is a spin-off of the Yakuza series starring a ridiculously cool private detective in a leather jacket named Yagami. It's nice to see the Kamurocho district of Tokyo from a different perspective. The twisty intrigue keeps you hooked, and the game also features the usual mix of captivating cutscenes, gripping storyline, brilliant combat and insane Yakuza-style minigames.
Ratchet & Clank
A gorgeous remake of a colorful 3D platformer featuring a large arsenal of absurd and original weapons. The journey of these two companions through a futuristic city was one of the few reasons to buy a PS3 at one time. The game was so great that it gave a vivid impression of immersion in your wonderful world.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
This spin-off may have started out as a DLC for Uncharted 4, but the resulting standalone game feels like a fully realized adventure. Antiheroes Chloe and Nadine as our protagonists are a refreshing break from Drake.
Also, the action takes place in a completely new location, which is a pleasure to explore. This is an unusual change given the way the story is usually structured in this series.
Snack will not hurt: not mandatory releases, but we will not mind
Games from this subgroup are good, they just are not as good as all the rest of this top PS4 projects that are worthy of being on a PC. Don't think that we think they are bad, if we wanted to do a subset of such projects, we would just include The Order 1886 or MediEvil. As for these games, if they come out it will be cool, and if not, it's a pity, but it's not a problem.
WipEout Omega Collection
A collection of reimagines of the classic anti-gravity racing series, including WipEout HD, Fury and 2048. If you love breakneck speed and good reflexes, then this game is for you.
Tearaway is an incredibly beautiful adventure from Media Molecule, whose world is completely made of paper. It started out as a PS Vita exclusive, but has since been remade for the PS4. Developer LittleBigPlanet empowers you to get creative with your games, and Tearaway is no exception, letting you draw and create objects to solve puzzles, complete quests. We need more of these things on PC.
Infamous Second Son
Like Killzone, Infamous Second Son was designed to showcase what the PS4 is capable of, and it did. Its lighting remains impressive, and enjoying the chaos unleashed by the vibrant neon powers of new protagonist Delsin Rowe has always been fun. Keep in mind, though, that the game has an outdated open-world design with tons of markers that can get really tiring.
