Interested in the PS4?
The PS4 has seen a lot of excellent releases. As a result, interested individuals should have no problems finding a PS4 title suitable for their particular tastes no matter what those might be.
What Are Some of the Best PS4 Games that I Wood Play?
Here are some of the best games that can be found on the PS4:
Bloodborne (Best PS4 Games)
Bloodborne resembles the Dark Souls series to a considerable extent, which makes sense because it comes from the same video game developer. In short, it provides interested individuals with the chance to explore the city of Yharnam using customizable player-character, which involves hunting monsters while looking into the blood-borne plague that has ravaged its people.
Setting-wise, Bloodborne takes inspiration from both Bram Stoker and H.P. Lovecraft, which when combined with its plot, its mood, and its high level challenge, has resulted in one of the best releases that can be found on the PS4. In fact, it should be mentioned that Bloodborne has never been released for a platform other than the PS4, thus making it a true exclusive for the platform.
God of War (Best PS4 Games)
God of War is the eighth installment in the God of War series. It is named thus for a couple of reasons. One, it has been a long time since the last release. Two, it can be considered a new beginning for the series as a whole. For those who are unfamiliar, this is because God of War features the same protagonist Kratos in a very different setting with a very different outlook. To be exact, while the previous God of War titles were set in a world based on Greek mythology, the new God of War is set in a world based on Norse mythology.
Moreover, while the old Kratos was consumed by his rage, the new Kratos is an older, calmed individual who is fearful of his son Atreus making the same mistakes that he did but nonetheless struggles to communicate those fears in an effective manner. On top of this, God of War has fighting that is less frantic and fast-paced than those of its predecessors but no less excellent, which is an excellent example of how story and mechanics can be woven together into a seamless whole.
Monster Hunter World (Best PS4 Games)
For a long time, the Monster Hunter series was very popular in Japan but much less well-known outside of its homeland. For proof, look no further than the fact that it has spawned an entire sub-genre of video games that share a lot of the same core concepts, with examples ranging from God Eater to Toukiden. Monster Hunter World is interesting because it was made with the intent of expanding the Monster Hunter player base to other markets in other countries, meaning that it was very much a gamble on Capcom’s part. With that said, there can be no doubt about the fact that same gamble has paid off, seeing as how Monster Hunter World is the best-selling Capcom title ever released.
Something that is particularly meaningful when one remembers the sheer number of successful franchises to have come from the video game developer. Recently, Capcom has followed up on the success of the title by releasing a huge expansion called Iceborne. However, interested individuals might want to tackle the base game before they pick up the expansion. After all, while Monster Hunter World was meant to be accessible to a wide range of players with a wide range of skill at monster-hunting game, Iceborne is high-level content meant for high-level Monster Hunter players who have mastered the mechanics. On the one hand, this means that interested individuals should wait until they are ready; on the other hand, this means that they can expect hours and hours of challenge to come.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the best action-adventure games to have come out in a while. Genre-wise, it is what is called Revisionist Western, which is a sub-genre of Western media in which the line between the heroes and the villains is much blurrier than in its conventional counterparts. With that said, while Red Dead Redemption 2 managed to win much praise for its storytelling, there are plenty of people who will be more impressed by the sheer range of things that they can do in its open world setting.
Some examples include but are not limited to exploring, hunting, carrying out heists, and of course, engaging in shootouts with both sides of the law. On the whole, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a wonderful gaming experience set towards the end of the Wild West, meaning that it is something that action-adventure fans should make sure to check out. If they aren’t convinced, they shouldn’t hesitate to look at some of the awards and accolades that the title has earned, which are numerous enough to make it one of the most celebrated video game releases of all time.
Until Dawn is a very unusual title in the sense that it is best-described as an interactive drama with a survival horror theme. In short, interested individuals take control of a group of young adults who have gathered at a guest lodge on Blackwood Mountain. Unfortunately for them, they soon come upon evidence that there are monsters at said location, which prompts them to call for help that won’t come until the dawn. As a result, the group has to survive as best as they can under the guidance of the player.
Primarily, Until Dawn is interesting because the player will take control of the various characters at various points in the story, meaning that they can have a huge impact on the ultimate outcome. Examples range from how it is perfectly possible to have no survivors whatsoever to how it is perfectly possible to save the full complement, which is the best outcome for the title. Those who are impressed by Until Dawn might also want to check out The Dark Picture Anthology, which is set to be an entire series of such stories by the same video game developer.
