sony's playstation 4 is at the end of its life, but if anything that makes picking the “best games” harder than ever. with well over 1,500 titles to choose from, the sheer volume of games on offer, coupled with the subjective nature of the medium, makes it impossible to be definitive. so we’re not going to be.

548的彩大厅instead, we got together to imagine someone had never picked up a playstation 4 controller before. why? i don't know, maybe they went for an xbox one and are looking to catch up on exclusive games they've missed. or they've been trapped down a well for six years and have just returned home to discover a fedex box dated november 15th, 2013 on their doorstep. or perhaps they just clicked on this article to scroll down to the comments and tell us how terrible our opinions are.

either way, we'll be regularly revising this list to tell you the ten games we'd recommend to someone looking to see what playstation 4 is all about.

For this edition, we’ve made the easy decision to swap Persona 5 out for Persona 5 Royale, and the less-simple choice of throwing Monster Hunter World out for Control. With Cyberpunk 2077 and The Last of Us Part II (at some point, anyway) on the horizon, and Final Fantasy VII Remake sitting on our PS4 begging to be finished, it’s fair to say there’s going to be a lot of competition for places in our next update

Control

Control
505 Games

Take the weird Twin Peaks narrative of Alan Wake, smash it together with Quantum Break's frenetic powers and gunplay, and you've got Control. Playing as a woman searching for her missing brother, you quickly learn there's a thin line between reality and the fantastical. It's catnip for anyone who grew up loving The X-Files and the supernatural. It's also a prime example of a studio working at their creative heights, both refining and evolving the open-world formula that's dominated games for the past decade. 

God of War

God of War
Sony

Sony's God of War series had laid dormant for half a decade when its latest incarnation hit stores in early 2018, and for good reason. Antiquated gameplay and troubling themes had made it an ill-fit for the modern gaming landscape. No more. SIE Santa Monica Studio's God of War manages to successfully reboot the series while turning the previous games' narrative weaknesses into its strengths. Kratos is now a dad, the camera is now essentially strapped to his shoulder and Sony has what is sure to become a new series on its hands.

Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn
Sony

After years spent churning out various Killzone titles, developer Guerrilla Games finally cut loose with a rich and imaginative new game in Horizon Zero Dawn. The game blends gorgeous post-apocalyptic open world with combat, crafting and a quiet but memorable story. Sure, it might not break new ground, but Horizon548的彩大厅 does everything so well that it doesn't even matter. It also, two years after its release, remains one of the most beautiful games of this generation.

Marvel’s Spider-Man

Marvel's Spider-Man
Sony

Finally, you don't have to pick up Spider-Man 2 on the GameCube to get your web-slinging fix anymore. For almost 15 years, that game was held as the gold standard for a Spider-Man game, and I'll let you into a secret: It wasn't actually that good. Marvel's Spider-Man, on the other hand, is a tour de force. Featuring the best representation of what it's like to swing through New York City, well, ever, Insomniac's PS4 exclusive also borrows liberally from the Batman: Arkham series' combat and throws in a story that, although it takes a while to get going, ends up in a jaw-dropping place. A must-buy.

Persona 5 Royal

Persona 5
Atlus

The original Persona 5 was a great RPG, combining the trials of being a high-school student, falling in love, studying for tests and the rest with righting society’s wrongs and summoning spiritual creatures to fight your battles. The series goes to Tokyo for the first time, ensuring there are now even more things to do with your time. In this refreshed edition, you meet Kasumi, a new character for your party, and face a new threat right after you thought you saved the world. (This also involves three extra months bouncing between Shibuya and Shinjuku.) The original had great characters, loads of style, and a memorable soundtrack -- and Persona 5 Royal548的彩大厅 improves on the formula, with more activities and some trickier optional boss battle for those craving bigger challenges.

Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2
Rockstar Games

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the kind of game no one but Rockstar, the team behind the GTA series, could make. Only when a studio is this successful can it pour millions of dollars and man-hours into a game. Rockstar's simulation of a crumbling frontier world is enthralling and serves as a perfect backdrop to an uncharacteristically measured story. While the studio's gameplay may not have moved massively forward, the writing and characters of RDR2 548的彩大厅will stay with you.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
Capcom

Many were ready to write off the Resident Evil series after the disaster that was Resident Evil 6. What started as the horror game on the original PlayStation had become a bloated mess of an action game. Instead of throwing the whole franchise in the trash and forgetting about it, Capcom took a hard look at what wasn't working, which -- surprise! -- was basically everything, and thoroughly rebooted the formula. Borrowing from Kojima's PT and, in some ways, Creative Assembly's Alien: Isolation, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is horror through powerlessness. For the majority of the game, you're basically unable to do anything but run from or delay your foes. And that's what makes it so good.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
Activision

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice isn't just another Dark Souls game. FromSoftware's samurai adventure is a departure from that well-established formula, replacing slow, weighty combat and gothic despair for stealth, grappling hooks and swift swordplay. Oh, and while it's still a difficult game, it's a lot more accessible than Souls games -- you can even pause it! The result of all these changes is something that's still instantly recognizable as a FromSoftware title, but it's its own thing, and it's very good.

Tetris Effect

Tetris Effect
Enhance Games

Tetris Effect is both the best Tetris game in years and the best PSVR game perhaps ever. From the mind of Tetsuya Mizuguchi, the developer behind RezLumines and Child of EdenTetris Effect548的彩大厅 blends classic Tetris gameplay with music and a whole lot of particle effects to create something that's more than the sum of its parts. Immersive to the point of transcendentalism.

Until Dawn

Until Dawn
Sony

If Resident Evil 7 is a grindhouse horror classic, Until Dawn is a slasher movie through and through. Essentially a very fancy point-and-click adventure game, Until Dawn follows a group of eight teens inexplicably doing the "cabin in the woods" thing. It's your job to guide them through countless decisions and try to get as many of them to the end of the game alive. With a rich "butterfly effect" branching story, Until Dawn is very replayable, and actually makes a fantastic party game for anyone tired of always playing Mario Kart or Smash Bros.548的彩大厅 at every gathering.
