Top 10 Best PlayStation 4 Games

The PlayStation 4 is a fantastic, powerful console with brilliant features and brilliant games.

This list is designed to help you find the very best games for the highly anticipated successor to Sony's PlayStation 3, the PlayStation 4.
The Top Ten
1 Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Better than The Last of Us? Yeah. Those words don't go together in a sentence. I LOVE this game with a passion. The Last of Us is very detailed but linear, and the cinematic every 2 seconds can get annoying, while GTAV has a lot to do, but very little of it is very thought out and feels like a chore. ACIV has so much well-thought-out content. Templar Hunts, Board Games, Bars, Assassin's Contracts, Naval Combat, Shanties, Varieties of Weapons, Upgrade Your Ship - you can't beat this game. This and Fire Emblem: Awakening are my two favorite games of the year.

After the fiasco of its predecessor, this game brought the series back from the dark road many video game series are walking lately *cough* Call of Duty, Battlefield *cough*. It also managed to make sea battles entertaining for once, and not just boring side missions.

The best Assassin's Creed I have played. Its story was not as good as Ezio's, but it has awesome graphics and better controls. It includes naval combat like I've never experienced before, four pistols, and many other things that I experienced only in this game.

2 Battlefield 4

I used to hate this game. When it was released, it was an unplayable piece of junk. However, after the netcode patch, the game became amazing. I have played this game for 210 hours and I'm only at level 98. The single player is trash though. I really don't understand why they included it, especially when you have to play it to get certain weapons in multiplayer. Your character leads a squad but doesn't say a single word in the entire game. That's the only area where Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare beats it.

A worthy successor to Battlefield 3, with much-needed improvements on the single-player side. The multiplayer is wonderful, as always, and has depth to last for hundreds of hours! (Why are there games here that are not released...? You haven't played the game, so how can you judge how good it is?)

It may not be a finished game, but it definitely surpasses my expectations that I had with the Battlefield/Call of Duty war. I always thought Battlefield would be better than Call of Duty (which it always is), but not to this magnitude. As Battlefield gets better, Call of Duty will always continue to get worse.

3 Watch Dogs

Playing a game in a real-life environment adds a level of immersion that can't be beaten. The sharp-looking graphics bring Chicago to life. You can hack anything! The graphics are amazing, and it has cool missions. You can play online and hack other people in real life.

Most of the time, when this game was going to be released, it was delayed, which means they spent time with it, trying to make the best hacking game ever.

Oh my God, a game where you can hack. I have dreamed of this way before it came out. A break from all the FPS and other repetitiveness, thanks.

4 Grand Theft Auto V

The soundtrack was actually very good. The radio playlist was good, but even the theme tune that appears whenever you fly an aircraft is really good as well. The mission music is basic, but atmospheric.

This game is one of the best games so far, in my opinion. It has so many things to do in it. Fly, drive, parachute, kill people, play golf and tennis, drive submarines and boats, and drive blimps. There is much more than that, though. Anyone who hasn't played should.

Why is this game at 40? It should be number one! You can basically do everything you can on Call of Duty, except more! Really deserves more credit, people.

5 inFAMOUS: Second Son

I guess it all comes down to preference, but out of all the games on this list, this is probably the one I had the most fun with. It was the first PS4 exclusive (after Knack and Killzone) to showcase next-gen graphics and clever use of the PS4 controller functionalities. Also, it had good storytelling, and the powers were fun.

Great game. This is a game that introduced me to so much more than just Nintendo and Sega. Even though I still love those most, I am very happy I play more adult-type games. I have a lot of memories with this that I wish I could go back to.

This game has good graphics and awesome gameplay. Plus, it's pretty different from ordinary games. It deserves a better place and should be listed on top. Just compare the games above with this one. Look at their arguments:
"A great game. M416 is OP!"
"Such a good game! All I have to say is: Assassin's Creed is back, baby!"
I mean, is that an argument?

6 Call of Duty: Ghosts

I have a dream that all of God's children will get along and love Call of Duty, that a game would not be judged by the title of their game but by the content of their gameplay. Free at last, thank God almighty, we are free at last!

This game is way better than Battlefield, and this series is really better than other game series. This should be one of the bests.

Best war game ever! I simply love the graphics, idea, missions, and especially the dog! Definitely better than Battlefield 4.

7 The Last of Us Remastered

Clearly, this list was made around the launch of PS4 and is voted on by casuals. This is number 1 by far. Also, why are you using this site as a source for best games?

I possess this game, and it is just insane! I love it very much and it's a must-play game for all gamers out there.

Very good graphics. Violence is graphic, though. I wish there was a first-person feature in the Remastered version. However, it wasn't announced.

8 FIFA 14

Ghosts was a flop. Black Flag, I think, was the best Assassin's Creed so far, but like any AC, once the story is over, it's pretty boring. Well, the multiplayer, in my humble opinion, isn't as good as most games out there. Battlefield is a beast of a game. I play it all the time, but I think FIFA is better because of the many football fans out there.

FIFA 14 is so much of an improvement over FIFA 13. Everything about it is so much better: the graphics, the gameplay, tactics, etc.

There's never a dull moment when playing. As soon as you score your first goal, it gets very addictive.

9 Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

There can't be a better end to Nathan Drake's story. Plus, this is my personal favorite game in the Uncharted series. Probably because it centers on a biological brother relationship, which I can instantly connect with for obvious reasons. The set pieces are amazing, it has some of the best graphics on the console, and it deserves all the praise it gets. How this isn't in the top 3 bothers me a lot.

By far, in my opinion, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End was the best conclusion I have ever seen for a gaming series. Not to mention the fantastic gameplay and the gripping story!

I could write a book about how great this series is, but really, I don't think I could fully describe it. Uncharted 4 is my favorite Uncharted game yet, and the number one reason to own a PS4.

Simply amazing game and has been voted the best game, of all time, not just PS4 on a couple of occasions by credible sources, not just fanboys with a WiFi connection.

10 God of War (2018)

The only reason the games in the top 3 (Assassin's Creed IV, Battlefield 4, and Watch Dogs) are so high is because this list was made in 2013, and before the console was released at that. The PS4 was released in November 2013, and this list was made in May of the same year, a month before the PS4's appearance was even announced. If this list was made around 2017-18, they wouldn't even be in the top 25.

Anyway, this is arguably the game that deserves first place. Everything about the game is fantastic: characters, story, gameplay, score, graphics, whatever you name it. It's near perfection, plus they reinvented Kratos to an extent that even newcomer fans can like him quickly.

Should be one of the top 5 for sure.

The Newcomers

? Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster
? Castlevania Anniversary Collection
The Contenders
11 Bloodborne

I don't really get the opinions here. Like what, Bloodborne is the best exclusive for PS4 right now.

It's a good game. I mean, good mysterious story and lore, cool weapons, hard but fun. What's not to like?

12 Killzone: Shadow Fall

What? Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty on top? Something is really wrong with our generation. Seriously.

This game is amazing, every Killzone is amazing. Call of Duty is the same boring game.

This game is so good. It has great graphics and very good playing modes. The guns, the people, the soldiers are very real. Everything in this game is real. Keep it up, Killzone.

13 NBA 2K14

Probably the most graphically appealing game, and it played well. I got the same experience on the other games as I would get on the PS3. 2K14 was a lot better on the PS4.

Go LeBron James! I am going to get the PlayStation 4 in a month. I cannot wait! The Heat will win the title again.

18th? Top 10 at least! Damn, the graphics! Great gameplay, game modes (except there's no association). Best 8th gen sports game.

14 Destiny

The single greatest-looking game for the past two years. If Bungie can bring the strength it's known for, not even being under Activision can screw this up! Cannot wait to play this beautiful-looking game.

Destiny is the first real next-gen game. It brings you beyond your wildest expectations and shatters your perceptions of just how amazingly far we have come in gaming.

It's from the same creators as Halo, which means PlayStation fans will get to experience the magic of Bungie.

15 Need for Speed: Rivals

Out of all the games I have for PS4, this is the one I just keep coming back to. Amazing graphics, fun gameplay, nice cars - what else could you want?

The best Need for Speed game ever. What else do I have to say?

Awesome, on my list (very exclusive) of ULTIMATE GAMES. Cars are good, tuning is great, amazing world, awesome races, great pursuits, and physics is so cool. I love the way you can choose two stories (like in my favorite game SA2B). Also, awesome features. Only that you must be on the internet, MAN, EA, make Rivals 2 with the ability to play offline.

16 Horizon Zero Dawn

Great game. Why is it so low on the list?

17 Final Fantasy XV

Final Fantasy is all about story! For me, Final Fantasy X was my first Final Fantasy, and I will forever love it for its "Free the World from Sin" symbolism and the beautiful world of Spira. When you come to Final Fantasy, you're not looking for a deep romance or an action-packed thriller. You're looking for a game that will touch the spirit and soul.

I have been a fan of Final Fantasy since maybe 6. The graphics always surprise me because they're far better than any movie when it comes to graphics, and the story is so heartfelt. The story is by far better than any action-packed game I've ever played!

From what I've seen, FFXV has way more potential than most games I've heard of. So, for God's sake, you people better start buying this when it comes out instead of the newest mediocre Call of Duty game.

18 Madden NFL 25

I personally enjoyed this game, but I prefer Madden 13 and 15.

It's so epic, and you can't get enough. I mean, connected franchise, play now, and ultimate team! #GoPatriots!

19 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

This game is the "crown jewel of the RPG genre." I have no clue why this game is anything less than 1st place. I guess people hate one of the greatest games I've ever played in my entire life. 10/10 perfect game!

Better than The Last of Us, better than Grand Theft Auto, better than Skyrim, etc. Best RPG ever made. I can't believe it's no. 20. It should be number 1.

This will be the top game of 2014, regardless of what this list says.

20 The Last of Us Part II
21 Tomb Raider

Highly underrated game. I'm a Call of Duty fanboy and I loved this game.

22 Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

I've always loved the Metal Gear Solid series. The games are the most critically acclaimed on various consoles. The characters have great development. Even the smaller ones seem relevant to the plot, and the gameplay never disappoints. I'm just hoping Metal Gear Solid 5 is as epic as it looks and it's not another Metal Gear Solid 2. I hate to remember how convoluted it was until Metal Gear Solid 4.

Even though the series is overshadowed by Call of Duty and other mediocre popular games, this game will always be badass. This game will be awesome, and nobody should overlook the masterpiece known as Metal Gear Solid.

I CAN NOT WAIT. I'm playing MGS 4, and it's one of my favorite games. With the graphics, sound, and better technology of the PS4, this game will kick ass.

23 Marvel's Spider-Man

I actually think Yuri Lowenthal's take on Peter Parker was better than Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland (yes, I said it, deal with it). For once, we start off with a Spider-Man who is already experienced and capable of dealing with threats. I love how faithful the game is to the source material, with a lot of references and capturing the humor and spirit of Spider-Man so effectively while also providing a great story, a flexible and accessible gameplay, and lots to do around New York.

This is my favorite PS4 game, with great graphics and good ways to beat up enemies. There's lots of strategy with the bosses. And this, this is only in 91st place. Somebody, raise it up 90 more spots.

This deserves #1.

24 Persona 5

Why is this ranked #164? It's the only game that made me want to turn my PS4 on every day.

25 Red Dead Redemption 2

My god, best ever.

Best game ever.
