Is it? Or is it mentioned in lists for PlayStation exclusives / Sony exclusives instead? And TLoU doesn't belong in a PS4 exclusive list.
Why not change the thread title to "Nintendo exclusives on Switch must haves" and everybody is happy?
Considering TLOU was released on PS3, sold over 7 million copies eventually become the 3rd best selling PS3 game, and just one year later was released on PS4 I don't know why anyone on their right mind would call it a PS4 exclusive
The trick is easy: re-release the exact same game, just up the resolution a tiny bit and call it a remaster et voilá.
Those are just a few examples, there might be more links but I think that's sufficient.
I supposed then Dragon Quest XI is also a PS4 exclusive, as Switch version isn't DQ XI it's DQ XI *S* :p
Reading one of your sources:
"Okay, okay, so technically The Last of Us was one of the best PS3 games, "
So in reality those "journalists" recognize this is not a PS4 exclusive but are including it anyway because of... reasons
I can only fathom some kind of exclusivity bias. Those articles, just like this thread, wants to point out how good is a system based on exclusivity in a attempt to say "That's a list of great games you can't play elsewhere, buy the fuck machine", even when the said game is clearly not a exclusive
I just realized nobody creates a list about "Best non-exclusive games of a platform", because the point of those lists are never highlight the games themselves only the platforms
I want people just dropped this exclusivity nonsense and made lists about the best games of a system regardless of its exclusivity
