List Rules Vote up all the upcoming PlayStation 4 games you can't wait to get your hands on.

PlayStation is known for its exclusives, which are often a selling point for those in the market for a console. This year was a slower year for Sony, with only Death Stranding filling in the AAA space, and a few small indie games sliding in there as well. 2020 will certainly make up for what was left to be desired, however, as the PS4 games coming out next year are some that players have been looking forward to for quite a while.

The long-awaited sequel to The Last of Us, as well as Square Enix's anticipated Final Fantasy VII remake, are sure to make a major impact in the gaming world. From what we can tell, this lineup of upcoming releases is going to round out the console generation in a big way.

While most are, not every game on this list is exclusive to PS4, but they'll all be a blast to play on the console, so we included every game players are looking forward to. Check out our list of the most anticipated PS4 games of 2020, and make sure to vote up your favorites, vote down any that don't interest you all that much, and add any titles we may have left off. Happy voting!
