Do you know what the best console exclusive games are?
Who doesn’t love something exclusive? I sure as hell do and especially when it comes to gaming. Over the years there have been so many exclusive games for various consoles. Unfortunately, unless you were a millionaire, there is a huge chance that you missed out on some incredible games because they weren’t on your console.
These days you don’t need to be a millionaire to appreciate some of these games, so here are five of the best console exclusive titles.
1. Super Mario series
Ah Mario, you’re certainly one of the greatest video game series of all time. How can you not love him? However, unless you had any of the Nintendo consoles, you have definitely missed out on these games.
While I did have a SNES, I jumped to have a PS1, so didn’t get to play Mario 64, RPG or Paper Mario at the time. Same goes for the latest games such as Odessey because unless you have a Switch, you won’t be playing it.
Easily one of the best console exclusive games of all time.
2. The Last of Us
If there was a reason to buy a PS3 or a PS4, then The Last of Us might just it. Arguably one of the best games of all time – one that certainly will bring a tear to your eye, and if you don’t have a PlayStation, a tear to your wallet.
3. Halo series
The only reason to buy an Xbox back when it was first released because, let’s be honest, they were so stupidly expensive when they first came out. Halo 1 and Halo 2 were both fantastic games and then when it came to the Xbox 360, Halo 3 was another huge reason to splash out on the new console.
While the series isn’t quite what it used to be, there is a chance that the next game will be a belter.
4. Zelda series
Another Nintendo exclusive and another gem of a game. Just like Mario, Zelda has gone to every Nintendo console, and as an exclusive. The Ocarina of Time is easily one of the greatest games of all time, and the Breath of the Wild looks like it might just be as good, making it a fantastic reason to get a Switch.
5. Uncharted Series
Hand on heart, I’ve never played any of this series. I have however watched someone play it and can confirm that it made me very jealous.
While Tomb Raider made the leap to other consoles, it seems like Uncharted is the 2000s equivalent. Nonstop action, puzzles and some fantastic storytelling makes this NaughtyDog came a true gem.
