No bait, this has been a weak year for the ps4. 2018 was much stronger. One can clearly see development has been moved to the ps5, hence the lack of exclusive releases this year.

I agree.

Knowing this was the year of Days Gone i already expected it to be weaker since from the get go that game didnt look on par with the ones we got last year, (granted it aint bad just not on par with GOW or Spìderman), and to be fair we still dont know if Death Stranding will be the best thing ever or a complete miss (i have hopes on Kojima but i dont think he is infallible either).

However i think 2020 maybe on par or even better than 2018 since TLOU Part II looks fantastic and i dont know about you but i think Ghosts of Tsushima is looking effing great as well from what ive seen, so i have hopes... also i know FF7 Remake isnt first party (and it probably will end up on other hardware years later) but thats another huge exclusive for 2020 thats shaping up to be amazing as well, you add another awesome looking exclusive in the form of Nioh 2 and overall 2020 seems like a perfect way for the PS4 to finish the generation.

Biggest game in 2020? Possibly. Though for me personally Ghost tops my list. Plus I'm expecting something exciting from Nintendo.

In order of excitement for me

1) FF7 Remake

2) TLOU II

3) Cyber Punk 2077

4) Ghosts of Tsushima

5) Nioh 2

FF7 is on top because i never played the original game back on the PS1 (yeah i know what a fuck up) and i just missed on experiencing that game back in the day when it didnt just wow people because it was great, but also because of its graphics and improvements (like the fact that when you changed a sword on the menu the in game character actually had a different looking sword, many other games didnt had that), so now i finally get to enjoy this game while at the same time being blown away by superficial stuff like graphics and attention to detail.

Granted the truth is there is a good chance that when i have played all of those games TLOU Part II will end up being my favorite since ND are just that good, but in terms of excitement thats what my list looks like.

Like Estebxx said before.

FF7 Remake, TLoU2, Cyberpunk 2077, Ghosts of Tsushima, Nioh 2.


How does Nintendo top or come close to that in 2020?
I feel like to "match" TLoU2, nintendo would need to launch a BoTW 2.
FF7 Remake.... would take another Mario Oddessey.

Chrkeller you've said PS4 seems to be slowing down and their moveing developement to PS5 and it shows.
However tbh PS4 software is still pretty darn strong in 2019 and 2020.



I don't expect Nintendo to match everything the ps4 is getting next year, I meant it may have one top tier game that contends for GotY. Meaning I wasn't saying ps4 vs Switch, but rather TLoU2 vs Nintendo title. 

The ps4 has been slow this year. But again, that isn't a jab. Last year was crazy great, and next year looks really good too. Every console has meh years. This year is meh for Sony. I thought last year was meh for Nintendo.  Just not much on the radar for me in 2019 for the ps4.  It doesn't help the Switch has been killer this year.    



TLoU2, Cyberpunk 2077, Ghosts of Tsushima, FF7 Remake, my ranking for 2020

Played half of FF7 but never finished it. Great game but my save got destroyed. I didn't even rank Nioh 2. I tried going back to Nioh after playing Shadows die twice and the game play feels silly now. I can't take the game seriously anymore. Didn't see anything in Nioh 2 that would change that.

Whats switch had that released in 2019 so far (exclusives)?

Mario & Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics (such a meh it shouldnt be in list)
Astral Chains
Daemon x Machina
Fire Emblem: Three Houses
Zelda - Links Awakening (remake)
luigi's mansion 3 (comeing soon)

vs PS4's:

Days Gone
Judgement
Concrete Genie (comeing soon)
Death Stranding (comeing soon)
MediEvil (remake) (comeing soon)
Shenmue III (comeing soon)
Dreams (comeing soon?)

Factor in big 3rd party games:
Kingdom Hearts, DMC 5, TLoH - Trails of Cold Steel 1 + 2 + 3,  FFXIV Shadowbringers,...

Yeah not the "best" year, but its still keeping up with the Switch, once you factor in 3rd party games, not comeing to switch imo.
(granted I liked kingdom Hearts, and enjoy the Trails of Cold Steel games, and would rather play those than say Astral Chains or Daemon x Machina)

A matter of personal tastes.  I find that entire ps4 list to be awful.  On the flip side Astral, Luigi, Link's, Fire Emblem and Pokemon are all on my list.  Last for the ps4 I was happy with God of War and Spiderman.  Both were superb.  And if we are going to count third party, add Ori and Dragon Quest Definitive to the list.

I ll give you Ori, since thats on Switch and not on PS4.
Dragon Quest XI  looks and runs better on the PS4..... its like 99% the same game (that one's a wash, since its on both).

Yeah tastes probably does factor into it.

A lot of it for me is having younger kids at home.  So anything kid friendly is just a better option, because I can play it with (and in front of the kids) and having younger kids has me in a space of preferring more light hearted games.  Having said that, Ghost looks amazing for the ps4.  I am beyond excited on that one.

I have young kids, but I don't let their taste dictate my enjoyment. I have stuff to enjoy with them, but I won't miss games I like because of it. Also not a good reason to call it mehh.
