Sony have already confirmed a list of over 20 exclusive games that PS4 owners will be able to enjoy over the course of 2016. We have the likes of [No Man's Sky](tag:2684052), Horizon Zero Dawn, The Witness, and Street Fighter V all on the way. But there are two other games on this list that already have us spellbound.

Uncharted 4 and The Last Guardian will hopefully dazzle us all over the course of the year, but which exclusive title has your attention this year? Are you dying to take control of Nathan Drake for the last time as he embarks on adventure like no other with his long-lost brother? Or has it been too long since Shadow of the Colossus and you're still longing to return to lands from Fumito Ueda's imagination?

PS4 In 2016: Uncharted 4 Vs The Last Guardian

Naughty Dog will be creating their first game ever for the PS4 following their sensational The Last of Us, which sucked every ounce of power from the PS3 that it could! Their return to the industry will be scrutinized for sure. Uncharted 4 is naturally going to be compared to the masterpiece that was The Last of Us, and we're wondering whether it could buckle under the pressure.

Naughty Dog have promised increased spectacle, superb graphics, powerful acting, an emotional narrative, open gameplay, and a title that reflects the power of the Playstation 4. Whether you're a fan of the Uncharted series or not, it seems like Uncharted 4 will become one of the console's must-buys. But do you think Neil Druckmann and his team have what it takes to create a masterpiece that can rival The Last of Us?

Then we come to a game that everyone thought would die. The Last Guardian has been in development since 2007. TWO THOUSAND AND SEVEN. Its been through development hell, faced hardware issues during its transfer from PS3 to PS4, and even the game's director left Sony along with other members of Team ICO.

However, the family is back together again and everything has been set right. The Last Guardian is set to release some time this year, and we couldn't be happier with that announcement. We're still skeptical that it'll arrive, but that's natural after all of this time. Shadow of the Colossus is one of my favorite games of all time and I, along with millions of fans, have been patiently waiting for a follow-up title from Ueda. It looks like 2016 is going to grant us this wish.
