The Sony PlayStation 4 has been around for several years and has sold over 50 million copies. Thanks to that, some of the best games in the world are available (or even exclusive) to that platform.
Whether you’re new to Sony’s latest console or you just want to enjoy the best games the console has to offer, here are MrCottontop’s top 10 best games on PS4 right now.
1. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
Nathan Drake is the gamer’s Indiana Jones, and the series’ last outing is the best. Nathan reunites with his long-lost brother and goes on a memorable adventure.
The scenery is breathtaking, from buried cities to mountains; the gameplay mechanics are varied and enjoyable; the plot is nice and tight, and the game is just stunning to look at.
This is, without a doubt, the best game the PlayStation 4 has to offer.
2. Horizon: Zero DawnThis is a post-apocalyptic game where you fight robot dinosaurs. It’s ha mix of Monster Hunter, Uncharted and Far Cry, and it blends those gameplay elements perfectly.
It’s by no means easy, but it’s fun and addictive. As one of the games that highlight the graphical prowess of the PS4 Pro, it’s also incredible to look at.
3. The Witcher 3: Wild HuntThis is the definitive fantasy RPG. It has everything an open-world RPG fan could want, from interesting characters to a mature and compelling storyline.
The addictive Gwent mini-game has tons of interesting monsters to encounter, and a dense world that you can get lost in for hours.
PS4’s Witcher 3 Wild Hunt is a long game, but it’s worth every minute.
4. Grand Theft Auto VWhat more can we say with this one? Grand Theft Auto is probably one of the most complete games of all time, on just about any platform.
Whether you want to perform heists online, follow the exploits of the three protagonists offline, fly a plane, play golf or just cause mayhem, you’re guaranteed a good time.
From the makers of Dark Souls, Bloodborne is one of the toughest games around. It’s a third-person action role-playing game with Lovecraftian elements.
It takes place in Yharnam, a once-great city with a sickness that’s turning people into horrendous monsters.
There’s no handholding, so you’ll need to put a lot of effort into it if you want the experience to be rewarding.
6. The Last of Us RemasteredThe Last of Us is one of the PS3’s best games, and the remaster is even better. The story of Joel and Ellie remains one of the most moving in video game history, and now the graphics are even better, plus more maps and the Left Behind DLC.
If you didn’t play the original on the PS3, you owe it to yourself to try the Remastered version for PS4.
Overwatch is a classic team arena shooter, with two teams of six players each facing off against each other. But like with other titles from Blizzard, the gameplay is what makes it special.
The characters are wildly different and the game doesn’t feel too punishing to newbies (a constant hurdle with most online shooters).
8. Resident Evil 7All current horror games owe a lot to the first Resident Evil; it’s the game that introduced us to survival horror.
However, the franchise lost most of its horror elements in recent titles, where the action took the forefront. But Resident Evil 7 is a welcome return to form.
It’s dark, chilling, claustrophobic and your character doesn’t pack enough firepower to take over a small country. Instead, ammo is limited and you cannot take on all the enemies. In short, an incredible survival horror game that will please fans of the earlier titles.
9. DestinyWhen Destiny came out, it was a major disappointment. However, after numerous updates, it’s finally fulfilling its expectations as one of the best shooters out there.
It seamlessly merges single and multiplayer and is every bit as addictive as other high-selling shooters like Overwatch.
10. The Last GuardianThe Last Guardian was in development for so long that when it was finally released, the hype train had long since departed. It also didn’t help that the final product was far from perfect, especially due to technical glitches.
Despite this, the game’s strengths far outweigh the flaws. It has brilliant platforming, excellent puzzle solving and an incredibly moving story.
