Once you get yourself a PlayStation 4 or a PS4 Pro, you'll quickly realize that there are just way too many games to choose from. There are some great games on PS4 but the platform also has some mediocre titles that you should avoid. Also, the launch of the PS5 or whatever Sony calls its next-generation console, feels like its looming on the horizon, and while backward compatibility has been confirmed, that basically means it's time to start making sure you're up to date, just like iGaming through Theedgepoker.Com. That's why we've put together a list of 5 games we've thoroughly enjoyed since the console's launch in 2013. All of them are well worth adding to your library, with many bargains available too.
Fortnite is one of the most played game in the world right now. For a start, it's free to play so everyone can get involved, and even its in-game emotes have become real-world dance crazes. It's rare a game transforms gaming itself, but Fortnite certainly has. The mixture of FPS, base-building and cartoon graphics attract the young and old alike and we heartily approve of PlayStation's decision to open up cross-platform play on this specific title.
Apex Legends is the newest contender competing for the battle royale crown. However, unlike Fortnite and PUBG, Apex Legends sees players take on one of eight classes, each represented by a unique character. Apex Legends is the perfect battle royale game for those who enjoy the battle royale game but can't get on board with Fortnite's building or PUBG's competitiveness - and it's free. Plus, different classes and abilities make for a more dynamic experience overall.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey took the revolutions Assassin’s Creed Origins created for the franchise and evolved them further, creating a gorgeous, dense, and fun version of Ancient Greece to explore. Allowing players to choose either a male or female protagonist and adding in dialogue choices that can lead to romantic partners, allowed for players to inject more personality into the protagonist than ever before. Odyssey sets a new bar for Assassin’s Creed games and holds its own in the lasting debate over the best open-world role-playing games ever.
God of War
The reboot of the long-running hack-and-slash series is a gorgeous thing; finely crafted, fun to play and surprisingly tender in its storytelling. Kratos is older, wiser but no less adept at cleaving nasty deities from head to toe. His son, Atreus, is along for the adventure – one that sees you crossing bloody paths with Norse mythology. God of War ticks all the boxes; combat is satisfying, it looks stunning, offers an emotionally attached campaign and an array of things to do once you’ve completed the main story.
Insomnia Games’ Spider-Man game is a frenetic delight, finally realizing the dream of swinging across Manhattan like Marvel’s iconic superhero with modern graphics supporting the experience. The game is well written and boasts some spectacular visuals, but its strength is in the little details – from how Spidey’s webs actually attach to buildings, to the game’s excellent photography mode.
