Biggest downside is that you only get them for as long as you keep paying for PS+. Also, starting next month, they'll be scrapping any PS3 backwards compatible titles from the list. The fact that Xbox doesn't do this makes it the more worthwhile service imo. You can pay for 1 month of Gold to snag the games you like and they will be available forever, even if you no longer have the paid membership. I've gotten some fantastic games on there in the past that I have yet to play, so it's nice knowing I can go back at any time.

i don't know if i'd call shadowfall well received. it was kind of middling and most people seemed to think it was generic. i don't know man, it just kind of looks like you copy and pasted a list
i went through every exclusive game (so everything that had a green "yes" marked), and if it had an article, i checked the review scores, and if the metacritic was above 70, i put it there

middling would be 50s to 60s

even so, take away killzone and you still have a pretty solid core vs. xbone which has literally 1 game to play, as you said, and that's me trying to be as objective as possible

that's a shame

neither service is perfect, for sure, so for me, it entirely comes down to the games

and as i've shown mathematically, the ps4 just has more of them

If you ain't played it with that monster shotgun you haven't experienced video games.

As someone who has both an Xbox 360/One and PS3/4, I think it's not just about the exclusives but more about the games they actually offer on this service and what they let you do with them.

It's easy to tally up what you think are the good exclusives of this gen but that says little about XBL Gold and PS+. On the Xbox, I've received Fable 3, Assassin's Creed 2, 3 and 4, Crackdown, Dead Rising 2, Rainbow Six Vegas 1-2, Halo 3 / Reach, Sleeping Dogs, Gears of War 1-3 and Judgment, Dead Island, Civ Revolution, Hitman Absolution, Dust, Saint's Row 3-4, Dark Souls, Street Fighter 4 AE, Dishonored, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Darksiders 1-2, Red Faction Guerrilla, SSX, Witcher 2, Sniper Elite v2, Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, Terraria, Army of Two TDC, Mafia 2, Just Cause 2, Thief, Plants vs Zombies, Metro 2033 and Last Light, Crysis 3, MGS 5 GZ, Walking Dead season 1, Dungeon Siege 3, Operation Flashpoint DR, Dirt 3 and Showdown, Deus Ex Human Revolution, Dead Space, Borderlands 1-2, XCOM, Spelunky, Far Cry 3 BD, Mirror's Edge, Beyond Good & Evil HD, Forza Horizon & 5, Burnout Paradise, Force Unleashed, Dragon Age Origins, Bayonetta, Battlefield 3, Killer Instinct s1-2, Sunset Overdrive, Lords of the Fallen, NFS The Crew, CARS, Ryse, Watch Dogs, Superhot and dozens of other indies (pretty high quality ones too) and smaller titles. I just skimmed through the list on wiki and noted down some of the ones that I remember downloading. Pretty good deal in my opinion.

The PS+ version has had some good games too, but I personally prefer this line-up even if they're not all system exclusive (neither are they on the PS). Even if the PS4 has more or better exclusives, that doesn't mean it's free games service is the better one. And even though it has offered more games in the past, few of them are backwards compatible and many of them are the kind of indie game that doesn't even have a wiki page.

You don't have to download them
Just add them to your library and you'll have the license to download whenever you want

tbh there's really only one exclusive on either console that's even worth playing

well maybe only the ps4 has an exclusive that's worth playing these days depending on your view of modern halo
Alienation
Bloodborne
Bound
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT
Driveclub
Gran Turismo Sport
Gravity Rush 2
Horizon Zero Dawn (which you were completely, hilariously, and embarrassingly wrong about)
Infamous Second Son
Killzone Shadow Fall
Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue
The Last Guardian
Lego Harry Potter Collection Remastered

Looks pretty good to me, fam.

You can scratch off Dissidia and Kingdom Hearts, because only hardcore KH fans give a fuck about KH at this point, and Lego Harry Potter if you just don't have any inner child whatsoever, and it's still sitting pretty.
Yeah, like he said, there's only one game worth it
