9 best PlayStation exclusive games that need to be on PS Plus

A huge number of games have been announced for the new PlayStation Plus service, but we believe it's missing a few key exclusives.

Sony have already announced a ton of games for their upcoming revamp of the PlayStation Plus service model, and even though there are plenty more to be announced, there are still some absolute classic PlayStation exclusive games missing from this PS Plus list.

A litany of great enemy types and weapons made them must-play FPS titles, but Resistance 2 stands out the most, as does its multiplayer component.

Tombi 1 + 2

It’s still staggering how many people haven’t heard of Tombi, but its relative anonymity seems to be supported by the fact that used copies of Tombi 1 and Tombi 2 sell for several hundred dollars…each.

The few people that were fully onboard the Tombi train in the late 90s got to experience two wacky platformers about a feral boy with bright pink hair that enjoyed biting the heinies of piggies. Obviously, there’s more to them than that, not least its gorgeous palette of colors, exuberant soundtracks, and crazy quests.

Metal Gear Solid Collection

The justification for Metal Gear Solid games is fairly explanatory and almost moot if anything. Hideo Kojima’s brainchild was first realized on the PlayStation 1 with the ground-breaking Metal Gear Solid before being succeeded by one mind-blowing innovation after another.

Currently, not a single MGS game is coming to PS Plus, and this wouldn’t be right. Whether it’s just the first game or the full Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, I need an excuse to shout SNAKE when PS Plus re-launches.

Final Fantasy 7

You’ll do well to find a gamer who hasn’t heard of Final Fantasy 7, Sqaure Enix’s RPG masterpiece that has transcended the many imitators that have arrived since. The likes of Cloud Strife and Sephiroth have surpassed icon status and the game is currently one part into its epic remake project.

The Playstation exclusive Final Fantasy games were a huge part of the PS1’s early years and the franchise, as it stands, is only going to be represented by FF 15 in PS Plus and I think it would be criminal to overlook FF7.

Driver

There is nary a Driver game in sight on PS Plus. The franchise got started on the PlayStation 1 and the tense undercover work of Tanner turned everyone into a proper wheelman. Driver 2 didn’t quite hit the heights due to its clumsy on-foot element, but it didn’t matter as some never even made it past the original’s tutorial!

It’s one of those games that everyone played when they were young and it would be fitting to get behind the wheel one more time as an older gamer.
