Want to know what to get for your PlayStation 4? Start with these, the best games you can buy!
The PS4 has a ton of great titles available, but we all have a limited amount of time (and money) so we can’t just aimlessly pick games. That’s why we have a list of fantastic choices for you to check out if you’re looking for something new to play on your PlayStation 4.
God of War
Journey to the Norse realm of Midgar with Kratos and his son as they encounter menacing gods hell-bent on stopping them. God of War was acclaimed upon release for just about every aspect of it, from its cinematic story to its superb gameplay.
Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is back to save New York City thanks to Insomniac Games. This is by far one of the best superhero video games to date, and certainly the best Spider-Man game. What’s more is that not only does it do the story of Spider-Man well, it does so for Peter Parker, too.
Dragons and dinosaurs
Monster Hunter: World
It doesn’t get much more open world than this. You can create a character with meticulous detail, join friends in teams for big fights with ease, and roam a massive new continent in search of all the biggest and baddest creatures you can find. Monster Hunter: World is as visually stunning as it is complex, and the perfect game for those who want to lose themselves in a good game for hours at a time.
Far Cry 5
While the Far Cry franchise has historically taken you to exotic locations to fight evil warlords of some description, this new game places you in a rural part of America to take on a doomsday cult pretending to be a semi-religious town. This is a great, straightforward shooter where the bad guys resemble something you’ve seen on TV.
Do you like pixel art? Do you like platforming? What about insanely difficult challenges? Then Celeste is for you. This indie platformer features tight controls along with a gorgeous art style.
Doctor Jonathan Reid wanted to live a humble life helping others, but alas, fate had other plans. Turned into a Vampyr during the height of the Spanish flu epidemic in London, Reid fights with his new bloodthirsty nature and his humanity.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Lara Croft’s rebooted trilogy has come to an end in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. After battling Trinity forces in Yamatai and Kitezh in the previous games, she now journey’s to Peru in order to stop a Mayan apocalypse; one that she inadvertently started.
Premiere fantasy RPG
Divinity: Original Sin II Definitive Edition
Role-playing games don’t get much better than this. Divinity: Original Sin II has been enhanced for PS4, complete with tweaked controls just for consoles. Hop into the world of Rivellon and fulfill your destiny.
Detroit: Become Human
Quantic Dream is back with another cinematic tale, this time featuring a world of androids. You choices will determine the events that take place as you grapple with the moral dilemmas of keeping androids in servitude.
Another platformer that leaped onto PS4 this year, Owlboy follows a young owl-human hybrid names Otus as he attemps to save his village from a pirate attack. But along his journey, he finds that the situation is far more dangerous than he thought.
