The Last of Us is a modern video game classic. With a gripping storyline, compelling characters, and excellent voice acting, the game draws you in and emotionally connects you to the people on the screen. You want them to survive, and you will work hard to help them. Having this fantastic game available on PlayStation Now makes the service almost worthwhile just on its own.
Rocket League is an action-packed, often hilarious multiplayer experience that was the first truly cross-platform game. The mix of destruction derby and soccer is brilliant fun, and I still play regularly.
Bloodborne tasks players with taking up grisly trick weapons and hunting within a city overrun by beasts and hiding dark secrets. This difficult game provides truly shocking, memorable experiences only available on PlayStation 4.
There are plenty of people out there that will tell you that Lego Star Wars are great games for kids. They are wrong; they are great games for anybody. I highly recommend you play this game if you are a fan of Star Wars.
I only found out that Alex Kidd was on PS Now while researching this article, and now I am stoked! My Master System 2 came with this game built-in, and it is a defining part of my childhood. You should play it if you haven't before.
Regarded as one of the best open-world games ever, Red Dead Redemption has a lot to recommend it. If you have ever thought of playing Red Dead 2, you should try this first to get a taste of the aesthetic.
PlayStation Now has every Batman: Arkham game available to play as part of the subscription, and they are amazing. Stealthy action, great storylines, and iconic characters all create some of the best third-person action games ever made.
If you were around in the '90s when point and click adventures were all the rage, you would know that the Monkey Island games are fantastic. If you are a young whippersnapper, you should get this game and enjoy the living heck of it. It's funny, witty, and challenging.
The entire Bioshock series is available to play on PlayStation Now, including Infinite, one of the best games I have ever played. The storyline, gameplay mechanics, and overall vintage/futuristic feel of the environments makes for some of the best games around.
Wrestling games have come a long way over the years, and WWE 2K18 is one of the best. The gameplay is so good you can almost see the sweat flying off your wrestler as they jump off the top rope, slamming into their opponent.
While I don't enjoy Terraria, my son (Aged 13) told me I had to put it on this list because it is "one of the best games ever made." I'm glad he likes it, and I know a lot of other kids do too, so I put it on the list for him.
Borderlands 2 is an iconic game, and the Handsome Collection takes all of the best bits and gives you even more with The Pre-Sequel. Even with Borderlands 3 out, it's worth revisiting these couple of classic shooters.
If you want a beautiful looking game with a great story, you should look no further than Horizon: Zero Dawn. It's chock full of gorgeous visuals, and the combat mechanics are intuitive while also managing to be incredibly satisfying. Guerilla Games managed to make a game that had me want to find every unexplored corner of its lush world.
Billed a standalone expansion to Uncharted 4, The Lost Legacy is more like its own standalone title than anything else. The game follows the fan-favorite Chloe Frazier from the Uncharted series as she seeks out an ancient artifact, and tracks the various adventures she goes through to uncover it.
Remedy Entertainment brings us into The Oldest House, where the fundamental rules of nature just don't apply, and otherworldly entities are wreaking havoc. Control was one of the best games of all last year and now finds a new home on PlayStation Now. If you haven't yet experienced this and have a love for weird horror and supernatural stuff, give this a go.
Which is your favorite game you've played on PlayStation Now?
There are a lot of fantastic games available on PlayStation Now, of course — this list is nothing but good games — but I still think The Last of Us is the best game available. Everything about the game draws you in and makes you want to play it as much as possible.
Games like Monkey Island 2and Alex Kidd fulfill my need for nostalgia while the big-budget shooters like Bioshock and Borderland are great distractions from the world. If multiplayer is more your speed then having Rocket League on PlayStation Now is huge. It's extremely fun and is one of the only true cross-play games available in the world.
