One of the biggest perks of having a PlayStation Plus membership is the free games you get every month. They are always hand-picked by a team of experts that know what you'll want to play. The games PlayStation is offering this month include two franchise games, with varying degrees of awesome. Check out the list below, start downloading these games on October 3, and enjoy them until October 31, 2019.

★ Featured favorite: The Last of Us Remastered

Very few games can be considered masterpieces, and The Last of Us Remastered has the dignity of being one of those few. Hailed as one of the greatest experiences on PS3, it was remastered for PS4 for all to enjoy. Embark on an emotional journey with Joel and Ellie as they fight to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. Clickers aren't the only threats out there, and you'll have to contend with hostile factions and cannibals to make it out alive.

★ Win the World Series: MLB The Show 19

Baseball games don't get much better than this. MLB The Show 19 is the latest and greatest in the series that takes players all the way from the start of the season to the World Series, if they're good enough to make it. Control a single character or play as an entire team and knock it out of the park. It's nice to see Sony offer a recent game — MLB The Show 19 released in March 2019 — as part of PlayStation Plus' free offerings.

Which is your favorite game you've gotten for free with PlayStation Plus?

The mix of games this month is pretty good. You honestly can't beat The Last of Us Remastered, especially now that it's the perfect opportunity to get ready for The Last of Us Part II in February. And if you want something a bit more relaxed than a post-apocalyptic shooter, MLB The Show 19 has you covered.

I love my PlayStation Plus account because it gives me a reason to play the games I wouldn't play without the incentive this membership provides. There have been many months where I was able to play a game full of nostalgia that I would have never thought to download otherwise. Let us know which game you've loved and which one you're excited about this month! Shoot us a Tweet over at @AndroidCentral and tell us all about it!
