Best PS4 Games
God of War
A some-more mature Kratos and his equation with his son Atreus make 2018’s God of War one of a best storytelling practice we’ve ever seen in video games. Excellent combat, good thought-out puzzles, and a good environment (Norse mythology, anyone?) are usually some of a reasons since God of War excels. One of a highlights of this game, for us, stays a gibberish between Kratos and Atreus (Boy!). As we remarkable in a review, Kratos’ initial correct coming in a PS4 is literally God tier.

The Last of Us Remastered
We’ve generally attempted to equivocate including remasters and ports in this list though The Last of Us Remastered is an difference since a diversion had some opening issues on a PS3, since a PS4 chronicle is flawless.
