The Best 10 Games For PS4

dark-souls-iii

Genre: Action RPG

Dark Souls III is the final game in the trilogy and it doesn’t disappoint. Played in the usual third-person POV, the game heavily relies on its tactical, hardcore combat system with a large variety of weapons available to the player. The dark world is welcoming the gamer with the atmosphere of dread and hopelessness.

Good: Dark Souls have always received high acclaim for its unforgiving, yet well-developed, combat system and memorable boss fights which are also present in this game. Also this time around, the developers backed it up with nice visuals and good sound design.

Bad: The world layout is a bit underwhelming in Dark Souls III, as maps are often too linear and not particularly interesting. Casual players will have a hard time enjoying the game, as you can’t simply “button mash” your way to victory here.

Dark Souls III is a must buy for all PS4 owners that love RPG’s and enjoy a challenge in their games.

life-is-strange

Genre: Graphic adventure

Life is Strange is a wonderful episodic adventure game that focuses on the life of a photography student, who has the power to rewind time.

Good: The game rightfully relies on its impactful emotional story, beautiful graphics and top-quality sound design. The time rewinding mechanic is also a nice touch that sometimes leads to unpredictable outcomes.

Bad: As in any narrative-focused game, the gameplay itself is largely sacrificed, leaving the player to mostly complete “fetch” quests and simple puzzles.

Life is Strange is a perfect choice for people who love to put the emphasis on the story, and enjoy titles that blur the line between art & video games.

the-last-of-us

Genre: Action-adventure, survival horror

Set in the post-apocalyptic United States, The Last of Us pulls in the player with a gripping storyline about the adventures of Joel and his teenage protégé – Elly.

Good: The game has nice graphics and the highly-detailed environments help immerse the player into the world. The combat and crafting systems are well-made and add even more enjoyment to the game. Yet the best part of the Last of Us is still its story, which will take the players on an emotional rollercoaster with a bittersweet ending.

Bad: Other than the included Left Behind DLC and the slightly improved graphics, there’s nothing new to convince the gamers that already played it on PS3 to buy this title again.

The Last of Us is a fantastic game for all PS4 owners that didn’t get to play the original and is widely considered to be one of the best games of all time.

ratchet-and-clank

Genre: Platformer

Ratchet & Clank is a remake of the original game, in which the player gets to solve puzzles, dispose of enemies and travel through a variety of environments in an expertly-crafted platforming shooter.

Good: The game offers nicely stylized visuals, unique & interesting weapons for Ratchet to use, and a healthy dose of the series’ trademarked humor.

Bad: The overall experience suffers because of a few slow, more passive sections that may be a chore for some players to play through.

Ratchet & Clank is an entertaining, pure fun game with charming characters and is a great choice both for the fans of the franchise and for newcomers as well.

the-king-of-fighters-xiv

Genre: Fighting

The King of Fighters XIV is the latest addition to the legendary series of fighting games, and it’s the first time this title is completely rendered in 3D. The roster is expanded up to 50 playable characters, which battle their way through the KOF tournament.

Good: The combat in the game is fast-paced and the majority of combos & special moves are really impressive. There’s a variety of modes that should keep the player interested for a long time. Another huge advantage of KoF XIV is how well it’s designed both for casual and pro players.

Bad: The biggest gripe many people have with this game is its outdated graphics. Despite coming out in 2016, the game still looks like a PS 2 title. Another flaw, that is quite common for fighting games as a whole, is that the game lacks any sort of substantial story.

While the King of Fighters XIV is mostly aimed at longtime fans of the series, it is also a good starting point for people that love fighting games, but still didn’t have a chance to try out this particular franchise.

the-witcher-3-wild-hunt

Genre: Action RPG

The Witcher 3 is an open-world RPG with a fantastic non-linear story and a dark, depressing setting. The player takes control of Geralt, a professional monster hunter, as he goes on his quest to find Ciri, while the world around them is filled with chaos.

Good: The game offers huge locations to explore and dozens of interesting handcrafted quests that will take over 100 hours to complete. The combat system is engaging and demands a different approach to each monster that Geralt has to face. The graphics available in the Witcher 3 are one of the best for PS4 to date.

Bad: Some people feel that the combat in the game is inconsistent, which can lead to frustration on the player’s side. Another common complaint is the game’s long loading times.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is perfect for all dark fantasy RPG lovers, as the game just oozes Game of Thrones-esque atmosphere and provides one of the most immersive story experiences of all time.

bioshock-the-collection

Genre: First-person shooter

Despite being around for a long time, BioShock is still one of the best games a PS4 owner can buy. The dystopian worlds of Rapture & Colombia are just waiting for new players to discover their secrets.

Good: The graphics of the first two games were significantly improved, plus as an added bonus you get the entire trilogy + DLC for the price of a single game. And the intriguing story & unique gameplay are still here as well.

Bad: If you already bought all the original games for PS3, there’s nothing really new added to justify this purchase.

BioShock: The Collection is great for everyone: those people still unfamiliar with the universe have a unique chance to finally dive into this game, while the fans of the series get to relive all of the legendary moments this franchise has to offer.

valiant-hearts-the-great-war

Genre: Puzzle Adventure

Valiant Hearts is a perfect example of a game not being for everyone. The story takes place in the rarely visited setting of World War I, only it avoids the “pick up the gun and shoot them all” route that most war games take, and instead focuses on the interpersonal relationships and the horrors of war.

Good: Valiant Hearts has amazing, hand-drawn art design, and a deep emotional story which is largely told through the art style and the environment.

Bad: The game’s puzzles are rather simple and unoriginal, leaving the gameplay part lacking and not challenging in the slightest.

People that love non-stop action, or innovative game mechanics can ignore this title. Yet for players that view video games as an art form – Valiant Hearts is a must-play.

rocket-league

Genre: Racing \ Sports

What will happen if you mix racing and soccer? Why Rocket League, of course. Psyonix managed to take a simple, if slightly weird, concept and turn it into one of the most fun games you can play on the PS4 today.

Good: The core of which makes Rocket League so great, is the over-the-top gameplay. The cars control smoothly, and this game is a clear case of “easy to learn, but hard to master”, so both the casual players and those looking for a challenge will be satisfied. The graphics are colorful and fun-inducing. Rocket League also offers players a ton of customization options.

Bad: One of the weaker parts of this game, is its offline mode, which isn’t particularly interesting or worth wasting time on. Another gripe that many players share is that the ball spends too much time in the air, sometimes leading to frustration.

Rocket League is perfect for a relaxing, fun evening either with your friends or random people on the internet. The constant crazy action will definitely keep you entertained.

bloodborne

Genre: Action RPG

Bloodborne invites players to the dark, twisted world of Yharnam. The unsettling atmosphere paired with the fast-paced challenging combat, that accompanies the adventures of the “Hunter”, allows Bloodborne to be one of the best games on PS4 today.

Good: Nearly everything about this title is perfect: the graphics, the gritty Victorian atmosphere, the dark art-style and the engaging combat system – all of those elements suck you into Bloodborne and won’t let you go until the very end.

Bad: The game is hardcore and the players have to be prepared to die a lot, so casual or sensitive players may not enjoy their time in Yharnam as much as the rest. The game is also sometimes critiqued for its low replay value and lack of character development.

Bloodborne is a must-buy PS4 exclusive for all Action RPG game fans. You will enjoy every minute spent in this brutally gorgeous world.
