This list is the top 10 PlayStation 4 games. To make this list the game had to originally release on the PS4. So remakes like Grand Theft Auto V and The Last of Us won’t be on the list. Obviously games that I haven’t played won’t make the list either. I want to first start off by saying that this list is the writer’s personal opinion, and doesn’t reflect the views of other writers of weponwheelnetwork.com or the members of the Weapon Wheel Podcast. As always feel free to comment down below, or, tweet me at @chrisbarnett91.
- Mortal Kombat X
MKX is the premiere fighter on PS4. With a roster of over 30 kombatants ranging from: Klassics like Sub-Zero, Scorpion, and Reptile, to guest characters like: Alien, Predator, and Leather Face. MKX is the follow up from 2011’s Mortal Kombat. The story takes place 25 years in the future and follows series new comers Cassie Cage, Jacqui Briggs, Takeda and Kung Jin. MKX is arguably one of the best in the long running series.
It was a surprise that HouseMarque’s Resogun was easily one of the best games the PS4 had at launch. An even bigger surprise is that it’s still one of the best games on the system almost four years later.
- Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
RE7 is a return to form for the series. After backlash from critics and fans alike, Resident Evil returned to survival horror. RE7 takes place in Louisana and follows series new comer Ethan as he looks for his wife in the bayous of Louisiana.
- Until Dawn
Until Dawn Is an homage to horror movies. It’s robust choice and consequence system and keen eye for the horror genre’s most ridiculous tropes make Until Dawn one of PS4’s best games.
- Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor
Shadow of Mordor takes elements from the Arkham series as well as Assassin’s Creed and adds something new and surprising that left a lasting impression on gaming. The Nemesis System is easily one of the best new ideas in gaming in quiet some time.
- Batman Arkham Knight
Arkham Knight is the conclusion of Rocksteady’s Arkham trilogy. The inclusion of the batmobile helps travel around the massive open world. While I like the addition of the batmobile I do believe that the repetitive use of the tank feature is annoying. Nevertheless, Arkham Knight boast a rewarding story that had me intrigued to the end.
4. Batman: The Telltale Series
I know what you’re thinking, “a point-and-click Batman game?” When I first heard about this game I was skeptical too. But after playing this episodic adventure I realized this is the definitive Batman game on PS4. Yes, it’s better than Arkham Knight. Telltale did things with the Batman narrative that we all know so well at this point, and they made it their own. They took a risk and it didn’t go back on them. And that’s what makes this game so special.
- Horizon Zero Dawn
Horizon is the newest game on this list. This open world RPG is a beautiful, well thought out, unique and interesting story. Sony now has a new mascot that can stand next to Kratos, Nathan Drake, Joel, and Ellie. And without giving away too much, this game has a unique story makes you care about the world, robots, and even the side missions. Simply put, Horizon is easily one of the best games you can play on the PS4.
- Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
Uncharted 4 is the conclusion of Nathan Drake’s story. And what a story it is. Uncharted 4 takes you around the world to different countries and environments, while telling a story of politics, adventure, pirates and betrayal.
Overwatch is an amazing achievement for first-person multiplayer shooters. It manages to have mix fast pace enjoyable gameplay with unique and masterfully balanced characters. And that diversity is what defines Overwatch.
Yes, Overwatch is in my opinion the best game on the PS4. I know most people are probably going to disagree with me, and that’s alright. Before people tweet at me and ask where’s The Witcher 3, Bloodbourne, and Ratchet and Clank. I’m just going to answer it here: I don’t like RPG’s and The Witcher was too much of an RPG for me, yes, I know Horizon and Shadow of Mordor is on my list, but, they’re like beginner level RPG’s. I also don’t like the Souls games so I didn’t even play Bloodbourne. And I honestly just haven’t played Ratchet and Clank yet. So that’s why those games aren’t on the list. Like I said above you can comment below or you can tweet me @chrisbarnett91.
