Personally, since I don't watch movies on my PS4, only use 5.1 channels, and only one PS4 game actually has uncompressed sound files, optical is fine for now.
Which game has lossless audio? Is there a list, like there is for PS3 games?

All of them. At least on the output. Actually putting uncompressed sound files on the disc shouldn't matter when the audio is a processed mix of dozens of sound effects, dialog and a score. Any sort of minor quality improvement from uncompressed source files isn't going to survive all that.

Apparently, Sony is going to have a voting system where we vote for our free games for the upcoming month. Three options in the first vote, all indie games. Call me cynical, but this leads me to further believe that the AAA games are not going to be coming, or at least regularly, and this is their way of sort of "throwing us a bone" to ease the sting. At any rate, my PS Plus membership will be expiring sometime in the next few months and unless I buy an online shooter this fall (unlikely, may pass on Star Wars in favor of MGS, Fallout), I won't be renewing.

Yeah, that's been my practical experience, as well. Optical as good as HDMI, in this case. I think there was a more quantitative difference with LPCM vs. DD/DTS on PS3.
Certainly a few native 7.1 games on PS3 as well.
