The PS4 is packed with amazing games in every way. We've separated the 50 best titles on the console so you can be surprised by the wonderful library you have at your disposal. From God of War to Spider Man, see which games you need to download and play right now!

1. God of War

After the intense adventure against the Gods of Olympus is over, the powerful anti-hero Kratos now lives in a new Nordic-inspired region. Along with his son, who needs to be initiated into his warrior training, Kratos must survive, whatever the cost.



With one of the best narratives in the franchise, Kratos' adventures in Midgard, with its fearsome monsters and vikings, are a sublime adventure with the perfect balance between character narrative and epic combat. All without a single loading screen.

2. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

An iconic RPG, with a fascinating character and a great story, The Witcher 3 is an unmissable game for fans of the fantasy genre. The game world is huge, full of tasks, varied missions and great game mechanics. Prepare to spend many hours with Geralt.

3. The Last of Us Remastered

The Last of Us is a game that cannot be missed on this list. Even though it was originally released on PS3, the remaster brought all of Ellie and Joel's intense and deep adventure to PS4. It is indispensable for lovers of a narrative adventure, with many elements of survival.

4. Horizon: Zero Dawn

Explore a world full of mechanical creatures and human bandits, in a very well done open world game, with great combat mechanics and an immersive plot. Controlling the protagonist Aloy, you can become a fierce huntress who uses futuristic bow and arrows while searching for relics of the ancient world. The side quests seem slightly superficial, but they complete the main story well.



5. Journey

Journey is a visual and sound work of art. The game tells a narrative without saying a single word. The protagonist has few moves and skills, and his goal to reach the top of a mountain is a journey through beautiful and mysterious landscapes.

6. Marvel’s Spider Man

The Friendly Neighborhood arrived on PS4 breaking everything. It's one of the best superhero games in history, with incredible combat and movement mechanics. There are dozens of uniforms and missions, as well as classic villains and good references to the Marvel universe.

7. GTA V

Take to the streets of Los Santos wreaking havoc and getting rich like never before in an iconic game and an instant classic from the GTA franchise. With a narrative between three well-built characters, do a little bit of everything. Also take advantage of the online community to develop your character and try to buy expensive cars and properties, while watching your bank account grow.

8.Death Stranding

Death Stranding isn't for everyone, but it's worth a try. It allows players, in the midst of the exploration of scenarios, a narrative immersion that few games have managed to provide until then. It has a very interesting cooperative multiplayer and a realism that is scary!

9. The Resident Evil 3: Nemesis

The Resident Evil 3 remake changed some points from the original and made Jill's campaign against Nemesis an adventure with more action and less terror. Even so, the villain is even more implacable, and the graphic evolution has made the duel more beautiful, dynamic and fun for the player.


10. Final Fantasy VII Remake


Final Fantasy VII Remake is huge and has several chapters, having been expanded from the original. Those who played the first game will notice that there are many different things that even made the whole experience more enjoyable. The duel between Cloud and Sephiroth is insane with the power of PS4!

11. Monster Hunter: World

The franchise came to PS4 very well. There are dozens of monsters to be hunted, a large open world and a multiplayer that puts you side by side with other players to complete missions. Apart from that the loot system is quite rewarding.

12. Dark Souls 3

An adventure full of sorcery elements, sword fighting and with many elements of horror and mystery. Dark Souls 3 closes the historical trilogy, typically difficult to complete, on a high note. If fighting deep demons and giant bosses using sword, shield and powerful magic is your style, this game is for you!

13.Bloodborne

Bloodborne is linked to Dark Souls, but it's different. Despite having a very high level of difficulty, it is a more fluid and fast game. There are dozens of enemies at a time, so offense is more important than strategy. And the plot is another very cool point, as you gradually discover the backstory as you explore the scenarios.

14. Red Dead Redemption 2

The sequel to the most beloved western in video games is even better. The world created by Rockstar for Red Dead Redemption 2 is as big as that of GTA V. Visually the game is perfect, and the gameplay, missions and customization options make your Wild West adventure a unique experience.



15. Detroit: Become Human

A wonderful exclusive! You control up to 3 androids, on different paths and missions, who seek to find humanity in the world and in themselves. The choice system interferes with the entire game, including the actions and combats that the player will have throughout the experience.

16. The Last Guardian

The Last Guardian is from the same creators of ICO and Shadow of The Colossus. It shows the relationship between a giant creature and a boy, and both must solve puzzles to go through scenarios full of dangers and deadly falls.

17. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

A story full of action, intense firefights and brutal fights that run at incredible speed, without long pauses to take a deep breath. Uncharted 4 could enter the commonplace of action games, but the action blends well with the narrative, giving a solid adventure idea. The multiplayer mode is poor compared to the rest of the game.

18. Shadow of the Colossus

Originally created for the PS2, this game has been remastered, taking advantage of the PS4's new capabilities. The world is very detailed, with the Colossi even more imposing and with much more drama. To win, use skill, weapons and a lot of intelligence.

19. Battlefield 1

This FPS takes place during the First World War, with weapons, vehicles and maps very detailed and inspired by the time of the war. With a pretty cool but short single player campaign, spectacular graphics and variable weather, Battlefield 1 shines brighter in multiplayer mode, like its predecessors.

20. Doom

Doom has returned to its origins! There are no big story arcs or complicated politics. In Doom you shoot enemies and dodge enemy attacks, all at incredible speed, without pause, without mercy or mercy. If shooting demons and other monsters at a breakneck pace and with dozens of different weapons is your style, look no further.

21. Destiny 2

Destiny 2 is one of the most expressive shooters on the PS4. The solo campaign is great, and being able to play it with another player makes it even more interesting. The space and futuristic ambiance remained, with the expansion of game mechanics and arsenal.

22. Fallout 4

Fallout 4 is perhaps the most exciting of the franchise so far. Allows you to have several types of approach during the game, ranging from the stealthiest to the most aggressive. Graphically it's a beautiful title, and the many missions keep you entertained for over 50 hours of gameplay.

23.Titanfall 2

Control a mighty Titan, a mecha robot capable of taking down the most dangerous enemies in ultra-risky missions, in a brief but very solid single player campaign. The multiplayer experience is also fantastic. Titantfall 2 is much better than the first title in the franchise, especially for the gamer who appreciates futuristic machines of war and shooting.

24. The Resident Evil 7

The continuation of one of the greatest horror franchises of all time, Resident Evil 7 is a terrifying experience. With a perfect sound construction and taking advantage of all the PS4's graphic resources, this game manages to transport the player to a dark adventure, full of almost perfect moments of suspense and terror. It has no multiplayer mode, but no one misses it.

25. Until Dawn

Like The Resident Evil 7, Until Dawn is a survival game, but much more tense. You have the mission to make a dozen teenagers survive a night of terror, escaping from a terrible serial killer. Or, if you don't, you could end up killing them all. The ending depends on your actions!

26. Kingdom Hearts III

Sora, Donald Duck and Goofy's third main adventure looks beautiful, with graphics and soundtrack befitting Disney worlds. In fact, most of the latest cartoons from the Mickey Mouse company make a cameo in the game, ensuring several references that all fans of the series will enjoy.

27. Gran Turismo Sport

Gran Turismo Sport is the first and only GT on the PS4. He is completely focused on racing, leaving aside the customization of cars and the pursuit of a career as a driver. Still, it's worth it for having a robust online mode!

28. Days Gone

Days Gone is an open world survival game where you have to kill zombies all the time, wherever you are. The huge map is amazing to explore, as every corner of it is a new surprise for the player.

29. Mortal Kombat 11

Mortal Kombat 11 is a direct sequel to XL. It focuses on introducing never-before-seen characters, as well as bringing the Brutalities back. It's ideal for those who like the franchise and for those who want a VERY violent and bloody fighting game on the screen.

30. Control

Control brings a tired storyline, but the gameplay experience is incredible. You control a character with psychic powers who has a weapon capable of transforming into... other weapons! That's why you can already imagine that the combats are intense, frenetic and that allow a lot of customization of the style of play.

31. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the latest game in the Star Wars universe. You explore an open world where customizing your Jedi is a strong point. You can even choose the color of your lightsaber!

32. Person 5

A long adventure awaits you in this Japanese-style RPG. A rich story, as all RPGs should have, helped by spectacular turn-based fights, full of action and memorable characters. However, as the game is extensive, some gamers say that they lose the rhythm in the course of the story.

33. NieR: Automata

With a surprising atmosphere and a well-constructed narrative, Nier: Automata takes place on a ruined Earth, with intense battles between humans and aliens using robots and androids. Despite being an RPG, there is a little bit of everything, for all tastes: big battles, gunfights, missions where being silent is the best and even extensive dialogues.

34. Rise of the Tomb Raider

Twenty years have passed since the release of the first Tomb Raider, and looking back at this game, history remains in good hands. This new reincarnation of the franchise mixes elements of open world, shooting and difficult places to escape. The game is dynamic and varied, with very beautiful graphics and one of the strongest characters in the history of games.

35. Injustice 2

A substantial improvement on the first big hit that was Injustice, this game manages to unite the DC characters in a coherent and gripping story. Adding RPG elements that allow you to improve and customize your character to the great fighting mechanics, the creators achieved a balanced and solid game.

36. Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

When it was released, Street Fighter V lacked content and many fans complained about the difficulty of training. Two years later, the Arcade version has revitalized the game, with different modes, the possibility of training and improvements in the V-Trigger - the revolutionary system that changes your character's abilities within each combat.

37. Dragon Ball FighterZ

Dragon Ball FighterZ is for gamers of all skill levels. The essential mechanics of fighters are easy to learn, but surprisingly dynamic so as not to become repetitive. With 24 different characters to control in up to 3v3 fights, anime fans won't be disappointed.

38.Tekken 7

The Tekken franchise remains in good shape with a game that is accessible to the beginning player, but retains much of the fighting mechanics that made the game famous. More subtle in the feints and using the realistic martial techniques typical of the game, Tekken provides a good few hours of intense fighting, both in solo mode and in online fights.

39. Guilty Gear Xrd: Dev 2

An expansion of the first Guilty Gear Revelator, this fighting game can be tricky for the beginner gamer. There's no shortage of tutorials with all the details you need to know to win fights, but sometimes this is an absolutely tiring task (only to block there are 4 or 5 different techniques), which can scare those who prefer simpler games. Story mode is simply an anime, with little to no combat. Still, Guilty Gear Revelator remains a brilliant fighting game, especially for absolute anime fans.

40. Overwatch

A unique FPS that relies heavily on teamwork to achieve victory. Overwatch has phenomenal characters, each with a different specialty like Offense, Defense, Tank, and Support. In this game it is always necessary to play together or victory will be very difficult. Many players complain that the game can get a little repetitive due to the lack of varied modes and that playing with strangers can be frustrating, but the game remains strong, with a huge online community.

41. NiOh

NiOh took Dark Souls and squared its difficulty. In this action RPG set in a samurai universe, you'll face a lot of hardcore enemies, who will test your patience to the fullest. Tip? Don't even try not to die, it's impossible!

42. No Man's Sky

After the many updates, No Man's Sky is very close to what it should have been at launch. Robots, vehicles, bases to create and thousands of planets for you to explore and catalog. Endless fun!

43. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Another massive remaster! The Crash trilogy brings all the absurd challenge of the PS1, making many players want to break the joystick. Which is compensated by the good humor and nostalgia of the 3 games!

44. Spyro Reignited Trilogy

The Spyro remaster brought the PS1 trilogy to your PS4. What we can say is that the 3 games are very well adapted, with fluid gameplay and simple to master. The challenges are still complicated, and platinum this game will be very difficult.

45. For Honor

For Honor is a different game, where you take command of a faction and must defeat an enemy faction for possession of a territory. You can be a Viking, a Samurai or a Medieval Knight.

46. Batman Arkham Knight

The last game in the Arkham trilogy is the best. In this version you get the Batmobile and other essential accessories in your fight against the Knight of Arkham. And the endgame is pretty surprising if you played the first two in the franchise.

47. The LittleBigPlanet 3

The LittleBigPlanet 3 looks like it's for kids, but it's not. There are dozens of very complicated missions, in which it is necessary to use quick thinking and movement to succeed. And you can also create levels and worlds if you want!

48. Limbo

Limbo is a super simple game where you basically walk forwards and backwards, climb on objects, jump and grab items. The mission? Survive puzzles inside a forest, in search of your lost sister. And we've already said: all this is very difficult!

49. This War of Mine

This War of Mine is a VERY difficult game to play and will require a lot of coolness from the player. In this survival game you control up to 3 characters, who must survive as long as they can in a house. You must deal with food shortages, disease and possible raids by marauders.

50. Horizon: Chase Turbo

Horizon: Chase Turbo is a car game created by our countrymen. It is clearly inspired by Top Gear, the SNES classic that we all love. It's worth a lot for those who want a simple, easy and very fun racing game, which goes through DOZENS of tracks around the world.
