Since the console launched back in 2013, Sony’s PS4 has ruled the current generation console market as the platform of choice for a huge number of console players. The PS4 console currently has a user base of more than 50 million which is massive compared to others. Throughout these past 4 years, a lot of first party and third party PS4 exclusive games have been released and we have compiled a list of Top 10 Best PS4 Games of All Time for you to check out.
Top 10 Best PS4 Games of All Time
Whether you own a PS4, PS4 Slim or PS4 Pro, you can enjoy the top PS4 games of all times mentioned in this list. Since these are PS4 exclusive games, you won’t be able to play them on other platforms.
10.Killzone Shadow Fall
Released in 2013 as a launch title for PS4, Killzone Shadow Fall showcased some of the best things the console had to offer at that point. The first person shooter was developed by Guerilla Games, had great gameplay and visuals and something else which most shooter games lack these days, a somewhat decent story. Killzone franchise’s main strength has always been its multiplayer and Killzone Shadow Fall did not disappoint in that department either.
9.Gravity Rush 2
Chances are, a fair number of PS4 users wouldn’t know about Gravity Rush or its sequel Gravity Rush 2. The first game was available exclusively on the handheld PS Vita while the sequel was released in early 2017 to decent reviews. This puzzle platformer allows players to manipulate gravity and travel around the world. What makes Gravity Rush 2 a great PS4 game is how it improves on all aspects of the first game, provides a good story, challenging platforming and combat sequences as well as nice visual and sound design.
Originally released for PS4, Sony decided to remaster Journey again for PS4 and managed to deliver everything that was great about the PS3 version of Journey while improving upon its shortcomings. Journey for PS4 was released in 2015 and is pretty much unanimously agreed upon by everyone as one of the best PS4 games of all time despite not being originally a PS4 game. The soundtrack for the game even managed to earn a Grammy award which in itself is a huge deal but a game winning the award was unheard of.
7.Infamous Second Son
The third installment of Sony’s own superhero game, Infamous Second Son was released on PS4 in early 2014 and put players in the shoes of a guy who could “absorb” different elements from his surroundings to gain powers and then use them to either do good or bad deeds in sandbox like game world. Thanks to its amazing visuals, fluid movement and combat and the fact that it’s easy to get into and enjoy, Infamous Second Son is one of the best PS4 games of all time.
A highly underrated PS4 game, Until Dawn is more of an interactive story than a game with massive levels and enemies to beat. Until Dawn tells the story of some young adults enjoy their vacations at a winter retreat house where they get targeted by a killer. Amazing motion capture acting, visuals and branching narrative gameplay where player choices had huge impact on the game makes Until Dawn a great PS4 game.
Developer From Software continued their action RPG formula from Dark Souls games and released the PS4 exclusive Bloodborne, which while felt a lot similar to their previous games also had a unique charm and setting of its own which ensure that the game would have its own identity and not get overshadowed by old games. Players travel around a Victorian-esque world inhabited by monsters and other crazy Hunters, killing them all while going through a surprisingly deep story which makes Bloodborne such a great PS4 game.
Atlus’ latest JRPG, Persona 5, released in Summer of 2017 to great critical and consumer acclaim. Persona 5 offers hours of unique content and branching paths to ensure replayability. Players take on the role of high school students in Persona 5 who also happen to moonlight as thieves. However, they aren’t ordinary thieves and instead specialize in stealing and mastering personas or unique identities of others. What makes Persona 5 one of the best PS4 games is that it had a lot of roleplaying content which made players live their lives as high school students, doing homework, taking part in exams and so on, giving a certain meta feeling to the game.
3.The Last of Us Remastered
Another PS3 remaster that made its way to PS4, The Last of Us Remastered deserves a mention as one of the best PS4 games of all time thanks to its amazing voice acting, animation, visuals and a deep and thought provoking story line which hinged upon the relationship of the main character Joel and a teenage girl he is transporting across the country. The Last of Us took place in a post-apocalyptic setting where most of earth’s population has been wiped out by a plague and turned into zombie like creatures.
Naughty Dog cemented itself as arguably the best developer for PS4 exclusives with the release of Uncharted 4, the conclusion to their Uncharted series, or at least to Nathan Drake’s story line. Uncharted 4 released in the summer of 2016 to great response from critics and fans alike and is now a benchmark for games on how to make beautiful worlds and high quality character animations. While the Uncharted franchise is well known for its cinematic action and humor, Uncharted 4 added a great depth to its story with character relationships putting it among the top PS4 games.
1.Horizon Zero Dawn
At the top of our best PS4 games of all times list is Horizon Zero Dawn, an open world RPG from Guerilla Games. Released in 2017, Horizon Zero Dawn perfect the open world RPG adventure formula which is adopted by most games these days but none come close to the quality of Horizon Zero Dawn. Players are put in the shoes of Alloy, a young girl living in a post-apocalyptic future where the world is ruled by machines and even the wildlife is machines. Humans live in small nomadic tribes, surviving from machines on a daily basis. Nothing about the game exactly spelled out uniqueness and certainly not one which would be considered as one of the best PS4 games of all times, not the protagonist Alloy, the open world mechanics of climbing towers to unlock map areas, the combat or even the story. However, Guerilla Games managed to pull it off so nicely and with such polish that we can’t help but consider Horizon Zero Dawn as the best PS4 game of all time.
So there you have it, our list of Top 10 Best PS4 Games of All Times featuring PS4 exclusives and remastered games. Whether you are a fan of shooters, RPGs, open world adventures or even calm and soothing tales of just walking around the world, this list should have something for everyone to play and enjoy. If you own a PS4 or plan on buying one, you owe it to yourself to try out these great PS4 games.
