Although PS5 has ended up establishing itself in our market, the truth is that it had a rocky start. The semiconductor crisis caused a stock shortage that lasted during the first years of the console’s life, making it very difficult (or very expensive due to resale) to get one of Sony’s latest game consoles.
The good thing about this is that in a way it served to give a little more room to a veteran PS4which is still up to par today, receiving a large part of the releases that its younger sister shares.
However, with the advancement of new degree requirements and rumors of a PS5 Pro in the air, It is increasingly clear that we are living in the last days of PS4. This is the best possible time to review their great, unavoidable titles and play them if you have missed any, now at a bargain price. This is my selection of the best PS4 games.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Rockstar’s open-world Western has shown that the company had much more to offer than reissues of GTA V. A spectacularly alive and ambient world that makes us forget about what’s off-screen and It throws us headlong into a story that would have excited the most veteran fans of the spaghetti western.
The Last of Us Parte II
The second part of the game saga that has inspired one of the best television adaptations It was very controversial when it was released, but time and criticism have made its value clear as one of the best PS4 stories. If you liked the first part, don’t miss the conclusion. And if you haven’t played it yet, Get the remaster without fail.
The latest Souls to date, and also the best according to both critics and its players. Elden Ring is a masterpiece in a genre with very high expectations that the franchise itself has created, but it has managed to stay up to par and never cease to surprise with its quality. A dark and tragic world with a background that is discovered step by step… and death by death.
God of War
In 2018, the God of War saga took a drastic change of direction to enter the realm of RPG as Kratos explored Norse mythology accompanied by his son Atreus. The bet proved to be more than worth it, giving way to a new chapter with a much deeper narrative and simply impressive graphics, which is even better in its sequel God of War: Ragnarök. If you like Kratos, Viking mythology or just good stories, be sure to play it.
Monster Hunter World
The most graphically impressive entry in the Monster Hunter franchise is also the title that has achieved the greatest reach. The monsters are more spectacular than ever this time and the scenarios offer a previously unheard of level of interaction to take advantage of the different battle mechanics. Its Iceborne expansion further expands on already huge content and has received as good reviews as the original game.
A cult title today, Bloodborne is that title that Dark Souls fans without a Sony console still wait and covet. The change in the aesthetic section of the saga, which went from medieval fantasy to Victorian, they leave an impeccable title of cosmic horror with agile and addictive combat, in a story full of goosebump-inducing moments. If you like Lovecraft, don’t hesitate. The Game of the Year edition is worth it, which includes top-notch content for very little money.
Persona 5 Royal
The Shin Megami Tensei franchise, or Persona in our lands, is undoubtedly one of the franchises that garners the most fans and players in the world of JRPGs. Persona 5 Royal upgrade and updates an already exceptional title, with Atlus expanding and improving its work with new characters, dungeons, and countless hours of content. A must-have for fans of Japanese role-playing.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
The third installment of the adventures of Geralt of Rivia continues to exude the love that its creators have for both the original work and its players. The Witcher 3 is a huge gamel, with all the essence of this epic story full of humanly imperfect characters and twisted situations. The narrative quality of the title is so great that even its secondary parts are more than interesting, not to mention a graphic section that to this day is still one of the best on PS4.
You cannot talk about this generation of consoles without mentioning one of its great figures: the eccentric and brilliant Yoko Taro. NieR: Automata puts us in the shoes of 2B, one of its most charismatic characters in a post-apocalyptic world that excites and takes your breath away with every step. A very replayable title due to its multiple endings, with a dynamic and very fun combatwhich will make you want to know more and more about its story and characters.
Final Fantasy VII: Remake
One of the most acclaimed titles in the entire history of Final Fantasy surprised PS4 fans with something they had always asked for and that they really didn’t expect to find: a remake. With a simply spectacular graphic section, Square Enix rewrites one of its best stories with a surprising success, to the point of having managed to satisfy not only the most demanding fans, but also attract a large number of players who have joined the saga with this game. An epic story whose first continuation we will see soon.
