The PS4 continues to prove that it is the place to play this generation, if you’re looking for a console with a wide variety of content, anyway. Yes, the Xbox One has a fair few redeeming qualities for sure, but Microsoft aren't publishing as many quality titles, and when it comes to straight console exclusives, the PS4's library is on another level entirely.
That said, in the midst of recent huge releases such as Horizon Zero Dawn and Nioh, it’s easy to miss out on some of the smaller ones.
Plenty of games go unnoticed by the general public, and it’s a real shame. Sometimes it’s down to poor promotion and advertising, whilst sometimes it’s a case of a much bigger title releasing at the same time, completely overshadowing all else for a good few weeks.
We’re only a few years in to the current generation, but already there's a long list of games that just aren’t getting the attention they really deserve. Here are 15 of the best PS4 exclusive hidden gems so far.
15. Infamous First Light
Infamous has been a PlayStation favourite for years, and whilst Second Son may not have been perfect, it did lead to a fairly interesting piece of DLC.
To be honest, calling it 'DLC' isn’t entirely accurate, as it’s more of a completely standalone, on-disc expansion. Players take on the role of Fetch, a girl with her own completely unique set of superpowers. She has the power to create and control a neon light-like substance, allowing her to jump and zoom around, fight enemies, and even create graffiti art.
It’s only a few hours long, but First Light is a nice alternative to sitting down and playing through a huge game.
It’s also very cheap. The original price was only a fraction of the cost of Second Son at launch, and it’s even less, now First Light has been out for a few years.
