What games are you playing lately? There are so many great PS4 games out there that it’s all too easy to miss something. That’s why I want to make sure to point out some of the best one I’ve seen in this console. Here 7 awesome games that I totally recommend you should play:
7. Ratchet and Clank
This is the “re-imagined” version of the original Ratchet & Clank game released for PlayStation 4. As you probably already know, there is a Ratchet & Clank movie coming out later this year. Part of Ratchet’s origin story for the film has been integrated into the re-imagined game.
6. Infamous 2: Second Son
Set seven years after the universe-altering events ofInfamous 2, Second Son follows new protagonist Delsin Rowe. As a rebellious graffiti artist, Delsin lives to annoy his brother Reggie, a cop on the Pacific Northwest reservation where the two live as part of the fictional Okomish tribe.
5. Batman Arkham Knight
Rocksteady has said this is its last Batman game, and I’m praying to the New Gods that they’re on the level. After Arkham Knight, trying to find more meat on the Batman bone would define futility. After Arkham Knight, Batman has been perfected — and the end result is the best game of this console generation.
This was my first shooter ever, and boy I won the lottery. This is one of the games I play almost everyday; even though they started pretty low they’ve build up a game and a strong community that listens to their players. This is game to be enjoyed with your friends, so if you’re a lone wolf maybe it’s will be a little odd for you. But still, the constant grinding and awesome memories that you make with your friends makes this game an unforgettable one.
3. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
The Witcher and its sequel established a fascinating fantasy world full of politics, intrigue, magic and monsters, and rooted it all in Geralt of Rivia, one of the last of the infamous Witchers — bounty hunters created through a potentially fatal series of trials and alchemical mutations, for hire by anyone with coin to destroy monsters. The Witcher 2 placed this within an action adventure context largely linear in structure, albeit with major plot changes and entirely different second halves based on player decisions made early on.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt takes the setting and complicated world-building of its predecessor and blows them out with an ambitious but logical next-step: an open-world game. For a studio without the AAA resources of a Bethesda or EA, transitioning from a more conservative linear structure to an undertaking so massive demonstrates a level of confidence bordering on insanity.
2. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
Uncharted 4 is a game about the high cost of obsession. Everyone, from the pirate founders of Libertalia, to the first explorers who died hunting it down, to the game’s current-day heroes and villains, is subject to the oppressive weight of their own unchecked ambition. As cautionary tales go, it’s pretty nuanced, and a surprising turn from the franchise’s earlier entries, which treated Nathan Drake’s unquenchable thirst for adventure and glory as something resembling a superpower.
That ambition manifests in different ways. For the wealthy and ruthless Rafe Adler, it’s a desire to prove his worth beyond his inheritance. For the mercenary leader Nadine Ross, it’s the duty to satisfy a client and rescue her company from collapse. For Captain Henry Avery — a founder of Libertalia — it’s the pursuit of redemption, as inspired Saint Dismas, the “Penitent Thief” present at Jesus’ crucifixion.
The constant specter of ambition makes every character in Uncharted 4 — even the old pirate kings who died centuries ago, whose plights are detailed through copious journal entries — relatable. But it’s also what makes Nathan Drake such a fascinating character in this, his final quest: His ambition isn’t nearly as explicit as everyone else’s. He’s there to save his brother, sure, but there’s something else pulling him along; something toxic, something that causes him to make terrible decisions with terrible consequences.
This is the perfect end to a saga, with a strong narrative and character build. They took advantage of the next gen console and built super detailed environments and perfect levels. This is game that is worthy of your time. It grows on you, trust me! What i would totally recommend is buying the bundle of the first 3 games of the saga, they’ve been remastered lately; that way you can totally dive into the story and get the whole experience.
1. The Last of Us
The Last of Us was already one of the most visually impressive games of the last generation, so the necessity of “remastering” it for next-gen hardware is arguable. The results, however, are not. The Last of Us Remastered is a lovingly curated package.
The Last of Us mines the same post-apocalyptic scenario as dozens of other games, but its approach is starkly its own. It paints a vision of a near-future that is cold, heartless and, in many cases, downright evil. It’s not a fun place to be, and likewise, the game isn’t really a fun thing to play.
Developer Naughty Dog’s commitment to this dark, depressing tone is alternately impressive and frustrating. The Last of Us actively fought any enjoyment I might have gained from it — from its oppressive world to its inconsistent mechanics. Being anything but fun might be the point, but The Last of Us doesn’t always make that point gracefully.
The Last of Us stars Joel, a grizzled, middle-aged survivor of a fungal plague which turns its victims into homicidal monsters. Joel is living out his life in a military-protected quarantine zone on the east coast. In the midst of a smuggling operation, he meets Ellie, a 14-year-old girl trying to make her way west for mysterious reasons. Circumstance brings them together, and they set off on a dangerous cross-country journey.
