Best PlayStation Exclusive of 2017 – Nominees

December 21, 2017Written by Chandler Wood

Best PS4 exclusive

The end of the year has rolled around, which means it’s time to sum up 2017 with the Game of the Year Awards. PlayStation LifeStyle is doing our year-end awards slightly different from previous years. We wanted to put more importance on the nomination for each award, so we limited each category to five games. That’s not many, especially in a year stacked with great titles. It took a lot of careful deliberation to come up with each list.

For best PlayStation exclusive, we wanted to keep the category truly exclusive to the console. This meant that it wasn’t just console exclusives, but to appear on this list, games also couldn’t be released on PC. Games like NieR: Automata were disqualified from this list for that reason. We found, however, that there were plenty of amazing PS4 exclusive games that you have to own Sony’s console to play. Persona 5 and its incredibly stylish attitude, Yakuza 0 with its occasionally bizarre, but altogether engrossing world, and the epic Horizon Zero Dawn were just a few that were up for consideration.

Keeping everything that came out in 2017 in mind, here are PlayStation LifeStyle’s nominees for the Best PlayStation Exclusive of 2017:

The winner of our Best PlayStation Exclusive of 2017 award will be announced next week on Thursday, December 28. It will be a part of a week-long celebration of the best PlayStation titles of 2017. Ultimately, it’ll conclude on Friday, December 29, where we’ll reveal PlayStation LifeStyle’s Game of the Year 2017. This year will go down as one of the greatest in gaming, so we’re very excited to unveil all of our picks!

Of course, we’d also love to hear what you think. Let us know what your PS4 Exclusive of 2017 was, and which nominee you’ll think will win the award! Will it be Horizon Zero Dawn and its sprawling post-apocalyptic world filled with robot dinosaurs? Stay tuned to find out the winner next week!
