The PlayStation 4 (PS4) has been a massive success since its original launch in 2013, and this is due to its incredible selection of games.
From third-party releases to exclusives developed by Sony and its partners, the best PS4 games comes across a range of genres from role-playing sports to strategy, racing, first-person shooters and even puzzle games.
If you’re just picking PS4 for the first time, it can be intimidating to choose where to begin, but we’re here to help. Here’s a list of the top 5 PS4 games that you can buy and play.
God Of War
In many ways, God of War is very similar to the original series. It’s a remarkable, third-person action game with big-budget production values, epic set pieces and hard-hitting combat that grows impressive and feverish as you progress.
What might surprise you about this game is how mature its storytelling has become. Just like Kratos, God of War remembers the past while acknowledging the need for improvement.
Every new thing he does is for the better and everything it holds onto benefits as a result. Kratos is no longer an expectable brute. God of War is no longer an archaic action series. With this reboot, it sure walks a new path that’ll lead to more exciting adventures to come.
Well thought-out puzzles, excellent combat, and a great setting are just some of the reasons God of War excels. If you haven’t played God of War before then, you need to buy and play it.
Bloodborne is a must-play for anyone who’s a fan of the Dark Soul and Demon Soul series. Now, Bloodborne has a lot of similarities with the Souls series, but its fresh aesthetics and faster gameplay put this game on the list.
It’s worth noting that Bloodborne isn’t for the faint-hearted. It seems like an evolved version of what’s seen in Souls series while maintaining the same level of difficulty.
In Bloodborne, you’re a hunter that’s taking on a world that wants you dead. It practically means you’re playing a third-person action game where endless death is more like an expectation.
That said, Bloodborne is gruesome, tremendously challenging, gorgeous, and one of the best games on PS4.
The different enemy types, Victorian setting, and weapons in this game makes it worth playing over and over again.
Grand Theft Auto V
Grand Theft Auto V isn’t only the best sandbox game on the PS4 platform but also the best tennis sim, the undisputed virtual yoga champ, the best golf game, and one of the best racers.
GTA V is perhaps the best game in the series thanks to its memorable characters that complement an excellent story and its unique narrative structure featuring three protagonists.
GTA V’s open-world configuration allows you to freely explore the entire world as soon as you’re done with the introductory sequence and it’s one of the highpoints of the game.
Beyond the main story and its extremely well-designed structure, there’s so much that you can do in the world of GTA V.
All these factors, combined with Rockstar’s outstanding marketing skills, have made this game one of the most successful games of all time.
Mortal Combat 11
Mortal Combat 11 isn’t just a sequel for NetherRealm devotees and series fans, but it’s a gateway into the world of fighting games for anyone who has a passionate interest in watching ruthless warriors beat each other silly.
The game has a streamlined mechanics which keeps the act of fighting wrathfully exciting irrespective of your skill level. It also comes with comprehensive tutorials which will expose you to the basics of the game.
There’s a diverse list of exciting playlists and characters. Also, the story mode of MK11 is an entertaining romp.
Today, MK11 is one of the most customizable fighting games in existence. In addition to cosmetic skins, the game has a gear system which allows you to swap out several items and weapons on your character.
You can also swap out moves to create your ideal fighter and explore the sprawling Krypt to unlock incredible rewards.
Swinging from one skyscraper to another through a living New York Metropolis is just one of the things that Marvel’s Spiderman does amazingly well.
Even though the main story last for about 20 hours, there are tons of things for players to do and see. From taking out your cameras and capturing some of the city’s best landmark to unlocking cool Spidey suits, it’s really difficult not to feel like the real Spiderman whenever you’re playing this game. It’s hard to state the number of fun basic movements in Spiderman.
The game is well-written and boasts some striking visuals, but its strength is in the small details: from the game’s excellent photography mode to how Spidey’s webs attach to buildings.
Criticizers have even gone on to say that Marvel’s Spider-Man is the best Superhero video game of its time (beating Batman: Arkham series) and we’re hoping to get more games just like this one in another superhero universe.
