The PlayStation 4 is a popular gaming console introduced in 2013 has been a massive success since its launch. This is all due to the exclusives developed by Sony and its associates to third-party releases. The best PS4 games cross an assortment of genres from first-person shooters to action, racing, strategy, role-playing sports, and also puzzle games.
In case if you plan to buy a PlayStation 4 for the first time, it can be a herculean task to select where to start, but it is not that daunting too as I have summarized a brief list of the best PS4 games for you.
1. DEVIL MAY CRY
The first edition of Devil May Cry 5 was released over a decade ago, but it does not have any traces of it. The latest version of this game is the sequel of that game where the flashy combat is enlivened with the power of the impressive RE Engine. Here three protagonists using very different combat styles, which you can never do the same thing twice in Devil May Cry 5.
In this game, Nero and Dante both make their return along with the mysterious “V,” who uses demons to fight on his behalf. Devil May Cry 5 is an over-the-top rush, with loads of humor and ridiculous weapons to keep you entertained for a long time.
2. SEKIRO: SHADOWS DIE TWICE
This game offers a mixed dose of speed and horror. Set in Sengoku-era Japan, the game is filled with magic and monsters ready to kill you instantly. No enemy is weak enough to deserve your attention, and several are deadly in one-on-one fights.
The best part of Sekiro is the boss fights. They act like choreographed dances, requiring you to learn every move before you’re ready to go in for the kill. In this game, you have to be alert and aggressive, but do not get greedy, it might lead to a quick death.
Bloodborne is a highly aggressive and fast game and not recommended for weak hearted. This action-RPG adventure takes up the challenging fight and methodical boss encounters of the games but speeds up the gameplay for a more frenetic and extreme experience.
Set in a dark, gothic setting and Lovecraftian story offers a bleak backdrop for the extreme gameplay excitement. Being a hunter in this game, you’ll make your way through the city of Yharnam, where a strange curse has started transforming the people into beasts. Although technically not a horror game, Bloodborne’s set up and high-stakes actions are amazingly terrifying. Be alert as the world of Bloodborne is full of unrelenting monsters and traps around every corner, making it one of the most popular PS4 games to date.
4. DIABLO III: ULTIMATE EVIL EDITION
The release of Diablo III is quite infamous which is hotly anticipated and received awful server issues and serious gameplay flaws, like a real-money auction house that drain out the fun. Finally, it was revamped through a number of patches and one full-blown expansion. Then, it was again released on console with support for up to four players in co-op.
The result is entertaining, supercharged action-RPG that welcomes you to play with buddies on a couch or online. Although there are several other games with a better story or better graphics, Diablo III is pure stress relief. Sit down peacefully, obliterate some demons, and see your numbers increase into the stratosphere.
Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 is the outcome of years of development experience and it has delivered one of the strongest stories we’ve seen from the company. Although being limited to characters we’ve already known from the original game, its long, slow-burn tale, we all are displayed the pain that came with the end of the Wild West era. The protagonist Arthur Morgan’s gruff-but-nurturing personality makes him the right star during this transformation.
If you avoid the dialogue, Red Dead Redemption 2 is just a great joy to play. On exploring the open world you always find something you haven’t seen before, whether it is a new species of animal to hunt or a bizarre murder episode to investigate.
