Sony has had a good start to the year, with the critically acclaimed game "Shadow of the Colossus" getting a successful remake and release to start the year. Even virtual reality fans are starting to get solid titles, as evidenced by the releases of The "Inpatient" and "Moss." The PlayStation 4 was recently announced as February's top-selling console by the NPD group, with Monster Hunter on the console as the leader in software sales. Still, We're only four months into the calendar year, and PlayStation fans still have plenty to look forward to in the exclusive department.

If you've never played the Yakuza series, "Yakuza 0" is currently out and is a good place to start, but I wouldn't shy away from playing 6 if you still haven't played any of the games in the series. You won't have the same emotional attachment to the title character, but each entry in the series does a good job of not making you feel lost in terms of the story and the gameplay. In fact, the gameplay is pretty easy to pick up on. If you love action games, quirky minigames, and a good story, then Yakuza 6 should be on your radar.'

'God of War' release date: April 20

Kratos is back. This time, the adventure takes him to into Norse mythology with his son, Atreus. Yes, you read that right. Kratos has a son, and one he deeply cares about.

Kratos is mellow, reserved in the trailers we've seen him. He's changed, but still, as evidenced in the new gameplay trailer, is still a savage warrior. The combat system has gotten an overhaul, and that should have fans excited. There's more strategy to it, so button mashing the same sequence over and over again is a thing of the past.

'Detroit: Become Human' release date: May 25

David Cage is back with "Detroit: Become Human." His first two entries to hit Sony platforms were "Heavy Rain" and "Beyond: Two Souls". Both were commercial hits and brought a unique approach to gameplay and storytelling with them. The new entry will explore a future where androids are common society, and make up a variety of professions, including cops.

'Spider-Man' release date: TBA 2018

It blew everybody's minds away with the trailer at last year's E3. And now, fans won't have much longer to wait to finally get in on the action. Developed by Insomniac games, the same creative minds behind "Spyro" and "Ratchet and Clank", "Spider Man" will be its' own game, and not exist within the MCU.

'Dreams' release date: TBA 2018

Media Molecule, the developers that brought you the charming "Little Big Planet" series, will be releasing "Dreams" in 2018. It's the ultimate creation engine, with the ability to create anything. It's an ambitious title and one that had many scratching their heads when it was first shown off at E3, but thankfully, new gameplay has been revealed that shows it isn't as complicated as first thought.

What could have been -

2018 could have been an even bigger year for Sony, but recently the company announced that "Days Gone" had been delayed until 2019. The game, currently being developed by Sony Bend, is a zombie-action game that looks intense.

It would have been nice to see the game out this year, but if it needs more polishing, then so be it.
