The 10 best games on PlayStation 4

The PlayStation 4 took the lead early in this generation, and a steady stream of exceptional proprietary exclusives, complemented by robust third-party support, stayed the course. Whether you’ve just gotten a PS4 or have had one since launch, we’re bringing together the best experiences you won’t want to miss in this constantly updated feature.

Please note that although the list below contains 10 entries, we do not actually classify them. If a match has succeeded so far (and has managed to stay here), it’s a must, period. As such, we will list the entries in reverse chronological order. Additionally, you will find an overview of previous entries at the bottom of the list. Although these titles have collided over time, they are still all great games in their own right and are worth exploring if you are already aware of the latest hits.

Here are the choices from Inside Gamer for the top 10 games on PlayStation 4.

The Last of Us, Part II

Released: June 19, 2020

The Last of Us was a defining title of the last generation, and the sequel to Naughty Dog continues to push the boundaries and set new standards for storytelling. The Last of Us Part II is a tale of revenge on its surface, but its deeper themes revolve around love, empathy and perspective – all reinforced by tense gameplay and phenomenal cast performance. As the story of Ellie and Joel unfolds, the players cross a complex world and survive heartbreaking situations that give a tangible feeling of helplessness and hopelessness. You may not agree with all of your character’s brutal choices, but even through the shooter and the violence, the journey is ultimately more about challenging your heart than your reflexes.

Persona 5 Royal

Released: March 31, 2020

The original version of Persona 5 had enough depth, strategy and history to keep players occupied for more than 100 hours. This extended version of the elegant turn-based RPG goes even further. Everything that made the first iteration great remains, but Persona 5 Royal also adds new characters, story threads and mechanics to make the experience even more robust. Whether you buy and merge new Personas, bond with classmates, or just enjoy an evening in Tokyo, Persona 5 Royal immerses you in its world and keeps you entertained for the long haul.

Red Dead Redemption II

Released: October 26, 2018

We waited for years for another rodeo in Rockstar’s open world western series, but the results were worth it. Simply put, Red Dead Redemption II offers the most immersive and meticulously detailed world the video game industry has ever seen. Although not technically a role-playing game, the level of freedom and agency of the players of Red Dead Redemption II allows you to completely lose yourself in the life of a border man, whether you spend your days flying trains and stagecoaches, or to hunt and fish on the outskirts of society. Arthur Morgan, along with the vast array of Red Dead support characters, is fueled by stellar performances and the unprecedented interactivity you have with them – welcoming strangers on the road and enticing poker players to fight, to bond at a campfire with your outlaw comrade. It’s not hyperbole to say that Red Dead Redemption II is a generation defining game that you shouldn’t miss.

Spider Man

Released: September 7, 2018

Just a few months after Kratos made its way to the awards, Sony had another exclusive success in their hands. Spidey’s latest adventure sets a new high bar for open world superheroes, thanks to gorgeous New York recreation and fast, flowing combat. Insomniac did well for longtime comic book fans by including tons of winks to the Spider-Man story, while weaving its own fascinating story and interesting versions of familiar characters. While some of the side activities have become a bit repetitive, Spider-Man has delivered dozens of hours of high altitude flight and web action that we will not soon forget.

God of the war

Released: April 20, 2018

The video game industry has come a long way from the beheading antics of God of War, but thankfully Kratos too. Santa Monica Studio’s reinvention of the series brings bold changes to virtually every aspect of God of War, from the new camera perspective to more deliberate and tactical combat. The biggest change, however, is Kratos himself and his new role as father and guardian of Atreus. The duo’s relationship throws God of War in a whole new light and allows Santa Monica Studio to weave a mature and thoughtful story that is among the best of this generation. Thanks to Kratos’ continued inclination to slaughter any creature in its path, the new God of War also offers a lot of excitement, as well as the most visual battles to date.

Horizon Zero Dawn

Released: February 28, 2017

Guerilla Games provides Sony with solid shooters from PS2, but the developer’s decision to abandon Killzone for an open world robot apocalypse has changed everything. Horizon Zero Dawn has proven to be one of the best new IPs of this generation, introducing players to an exciting fusion of futuristic technology and prehistoric warfare. Heavy fighting, cleverly designed enemy robots, and great open world views are just a few of the reasons why Horizon is unleashed, while the multilayered mysteries at the heart of Aloy’s journey make repression difficult.

Overwatch

Released: May 24, 2016

The competitive shooter based on Blizzard heroes has been out for years, yet it remains one of the most frequently played games by the Personal G.I. Part of Overwatch’s longevity can be attributed to its perfect shooter, its full list of characters and its infinitely replayable assault, control and escort modes. However, what really keeps us coming back are all the improvements and additions that Blizzard continues to offer, from countless balance adjustments to the multitude of new heroes and maps that have been added over the years, to surprising scheduled events and creative. Not everyone in the staff likes Overwatch’s implementation of loot boxes, but that doesn’t stop us from getting back to life every time new costumes are introduced, and the flow of additional income has kept the cornucopia of content updates from Overwatch free for all users. As long as Blizzard continues to update Overwatch, we will continue to play it, which will make it an easy recommendation for competitive shooting fans.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Released: May 10, 2016

Nathan Drake has served the PlayStation brand well over the years, and his latest adventure turns out to be the best. Uncharted 4 not only presents the biggest environments and most spectacular moments of the series, but it also offers the most mature and nuanced narration, plunging into Nathan’s childhood and his relationship with his distant brother Sam. As captivating as be the clock tower and chase sequences of ruined motorcycle of Uncharted 4, the calm moments of character with Elena steal the limelight and transform into a touching final worthy of one of the biggest franchises of Sony.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Released: May 19, 2015

The Witcher 3 is still the shining example of what we hope to be the future of open-world RPGs: a massive, fully realized world to explore, skillfully designed, multidimensional characters, and intriguing choices that spill over to dozens and dozens of hours of play. The heavy expansion of Blood and Wine has spoiled us with even more fantastic content, but even years after its release, we return with emotion to our adventures with Geralt. If you’re looking for the best in the RPG genre, The Witcher 3 is perfect.

Bloodborne

Released: March 23, 2015

There is no shortage of games inspired by From Software’s notoriously difficult Dark Souls series, but the Sony developer-exclusive spin-off remains our favorite. Bloodborne animated action and Lovecraftian horror combine to create a captivating and scary world to explore. True to its roots, the Bloodborne fight remains just as ruthless and extremely satisfying, forcing you to master the intricacies of your equipment and the models of your enemies if you hope to survive. The high difficulty level of Bloodborne may not be for everyone, but if you’re ready to “git gud”, this is the place to start.
