When it comes to choosing between a PS5 and an Xbox Series S or X, one thing that sways many gamers is the PS5's outstanding lineup of console exclusives. Whether it's Sony's first-party masterpieces or third-party gems snatched up by the Japanese giant, the PlayStation 5 undeniably takes the lead in the realm of exclusive games.
Now, a lot of the best PS5 exclusives fall into the single-player, action-adventure, and open-world categories. But don't be fooled; the console's exclusive library offers more than just that. It's got platformers, RPGs, and fighting games that will make your gaming experience top-notch. So, choosing between an Xbox and a PlayStation can be a real challenge.
Let's talk about Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. Some might argue that it's not the strongest installment in the series, and they might have a point. The writing and gameplay might seem a tad watered down to cater to a younger audience. However, it's still an incredibly fun action platformer that will keep you entertained.
The game looks stunning, with a narrative that hooks you from the start. The characters are well-crafted, adding depth to the story. And let's not forget the boss fights, which are nothing short of enjoyable. With a wide array of weapons and upgrades, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart encourages exploration and caters to different playstyles.
Now, let's delve into Death Stranding Director's Cut. This game has been quite divisive over the past decade, with some dismissing it as nothing more than a walking simulator. However, as time has passed, more and more people have come to appreciate the brilliance of the Strand-type genre, which prioritizes social connections over combat.
To be fair, Death Stranding is one of those games that some people will hate because of the substantial amount of time spent watching cutscenes and traversing a mostly barren open world. But for those seeking a great story and a unique experience that only Hideo Kojima can deliver, Death Stranding is definitely worth a look.
Now, let's swing our way into Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales. When it was released alongside the PS5, there was some confusion about whether it was just a DLC expansion for Insomniac's 2018 title. But trust me, it's a standalone game in every way and a darn good one at that.
Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales takes you back to the streets of New York, where you can swing through beautifully rendered skyscrapers with just a few button presses. The visuals are impressive, and the main story is fantastic. Plus, the deluxe edition includes Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered, a treat for those who missed out on the original game.
And how can we forget Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade? JRPG fans had been begging Square Enix to remake Final Fantasy 7 for years, and their wishes were finally granted. While it's not a true remake in the traditional sense, it offers a reimagining of the original title, with some events playing out differently. The gameplay and graphics, however, are polished to perfection.
Now, let's hit the pedal to the metal with Gran Turismo 7. Despite some questionable decisions like an always-online model and aggressive monetization, this game is undeniably fantastic. Many consider it the best Gran Turismo game in over a decade, and there are solid reasons for that.
Gran Turismo 7 looks breathtaking on the PS5, utilizing the console's processing power to its fullest. The game offers a vast selection of cars and tracks, and the Menu Books will keep you entertained while grinding for Credits. And guess what? It now fully supports PSVR 2, allowing you to experience the thrill of racing in stunning virtual reality.
Now, let's dive into the abyss of Demon's Souls. FromSoftware's breakout title defined a whole genre, and its remake was a fitting way to kick off the PlayStation 5 era. While it may have been overshadowed by Elden Ring in the end, Demon's Souls enjoyed a good run as the best Soulslike on the console.
The remake brought significant upgrades, including smoother rolling, improved animations, shorter loading times, and jaw-dropping graphics. Bluepoint Games did an outstanding job revitalizing this classic, and fans couldn't be happier.
And finally, we have Horizon Forbidden West. Unfortunately, information about this game is scarce at the moment, but we can expect it to continue the epic journey set forth by Aloy in Horizon Zero Dawn.
So, there you have it, folks! The PlayStation 5 is a treasure trove of exclusives that cater to every gamer's taste. From action-adventure to RPGs, platformers to racing sims, the PS5 has it all. So, buckle up, grab your controller, and embark on an unforgettable gaming adventure with the PlayStation 5!
