PS4

The PlayStation 4 has a ton of great titles available, but we all have a limited amount of time (and money) so we can't just aimlessly pick games. That's why we have a list of fantastic choices for you to check out if you're looking for something new to play on your PlayStation 4.

Whether you're a fan of indie platformers or big-budget AAA spectacles, you'll find some incredible games on PS4 that have released throughout the year such as Insomniac's Spider-Man, a marvelous achievement propelling the medium forward when it comes to superhero tie-ins.

Norse mythology

God of War

Journey to the Norse realm of Midgar with Kratos and his son as they encounter menacing gods hell-bent on stopping them. God of War was acclaimed upon release for just about every aspect of it, from its cinematic story to its superb gameplay.

Dragons and dinosaurs

Monster Hunter: World

It doesn't get much more open world than this. You can create a character with meticulous detail, join friends in teams for big fights with ease, and roam a massive new continent in search of all the biggest and baddest creatures you can find. Monster Hunter: World is as visually stunning as it is complex, and the perfect game for those who want to lose themselves in a good game for hours at a time.

Religious fanaticism

Far Cry 5

While the Far Cry franchise has historically taken you to exotic locations to fight evil warlords of some description, this new game places you in a rural part of America to take on a doomsday cult pretending to be a semi-religious town. This is a great, straightforward shooter where the bad guys resemble something you've seen on TV.
