As this console generation draws to a close it will be remembered as the most one-sided console generation of recent times. Sony won this generation by far and it was due to its numerous fantastic exclusives whilst the Xbox One barely has any.
It’s my job to list only the best 42 PS4 games in order of genre, and they will range from big-budget AAA exclusives to fighting games.
Check the menu to see what genres you’re interested in are you ready? Let’s get right to it.
First Person Shooters
Apex Legends hit 50 million players in its first month and it’s one of the most popular games of any platform. It is a battle royale style game where 20 squads of three players compete against each other to be the last team standing and is developed by Respawn Entertainment and set in the Titanfall universe after the events of Titanfall 2.
What separates it from other battle royale games like Fortnite and PUBG is there are 8 different classes that are marked by 8 different characters with their own unique abilities. It’s cool to experiment with different characters and see what character combinations best fits your squad’s playstyle.
It’s kinda like Fortnite mixed with OverWatch without the building. If you like battle royale but don’t like how competitive PUGB is Fortnites building mechanics and just want something more like a traditional FPS, then Apex Legends is for you!
The best thing? It’s completely free on every platform! So get busy downloading and see if you like it.
PS4 Pro Support? No

2.Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus(Amazon Link)
Wolfenstein 2 developed by MachineGames is a sequel to the hilarious yet serious Nazi killing first game and is set in an alternative 1960s Nazi-controlled America. The combat is fast-paced with dual wielding weapons feeling meaty and consumable are now picked up automatically.
What separates this game is the story between the action sequences, the entire cast is excellently well written and the main antagonist is one of the most interesting you will see in a game. You see things like a Nazi rally in New Mexico and Nazi soldiers having a conversation with Ku Klux Klan members and sharing common ground, these little moments in the world is where the game shines.
Check out a review to see the Nazi killing in action.

3.Doom (Amazon Link)
Doom is a modern reboot of one of the most important FPS games ever made, Doom (1993) which was first on the MS-DOS operating system. It is FPS at it’s most pure, messy frantic and just action-packed at every corner, it is just pure fun.
You can perform special melee finishers on hellspawn to satisfy your bloodlust and all classic weapon types & enemy types return with additional upgrades and the ability to double pump shotguns. It truly is one of the most enjoyable FPSs ever made.

4. Titanfall 2 (Amazon Link)
TitanFall 1 was only released on the Xbox & PC and its sequel improves upon it in every way. The FPS movement is phenomenal with fluid movement and all the titans(robots) control you control are all unique. The campaign is one of the best FPS campaigns in recent memory, and a lot of the development team are ex infinity ward members who made COD 4 & Modern Warfare 2 two fantastic first-person shooters.
The battle between the giant mechs and smaller infantry is exciting and whilst the robots are powerful they are easy to hit and lack the manoeuvrability of the infantry, and the maps are varied enough to have a plentiful of hiding places for foot soldiers.
The game didn’t sell well but still has an active subreddit and is generally considered one of the best FPSs of all time which is sad as it was a commercial flop.
Check out a review of the robot infantry shooter down below but if your a fan of FPS just buy it, I promise you will not regret it.
PS4 Pro Support? Yes. Higher resolution with more stable framerates.

5.Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare(Amazon Link)
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare(2019) is a step back from zombies, jetpacks, super jumps and too futuristic warfare to return from what made the most successful FPS franchise so successful Call Of Duty 4; unquestionably one of the most influential games of all time.
Activision stepped from the recent games instead brings war right back into more realistic settings, with the game being related to the very real conflicts of the Middle East & Russia, and it flirts with very serious material such as drone strikes and the cost of War but the campaign could have gone deeper.
It is one of the best COD’s in years with the shooting feeling solid and the controls working exactly as they should. Whilst there have been problems with the campaign not going as far left field as it should, and the multiplayer involving narrow maps that punish aggressive play, these issues have improved in recent times with better maps and Cod classics being introduced.
Check out a review here, but bear in mind the multiplayer issues have improved recently.
PS4 Pro Support? Yes, 4K but no HDR
Similar Games: All Call Of Duties, Battlefield 1
6.Battlefield 1 (Amazon Link)
Battlefield like Call Of Duty has gone through a difficult period recently, and Dice needed to shake the series. Battlefield 1 stepped back into WW1 and use the old to bring a fresh new spin on the series.
Spoiler alert it worked, as WW1 games are rare and seeing all these old classic weapons and vehicles gives a sense of realism to Battlefield 1 combined with the fantastic graphics and l details like limbs flying from explosions, really puts you into the forefront of the western front
Battlefields campaign is usually second to the multiplayer but surprisingly Battlefield 1 campaign is solid and poignant and it’s broken into 6 sections which each have a different setting and playable character which means it never gets stale so you get bored.
This change of setting feeds into the multiplayer as using all these old weapons fighting in some historic wartime fronts is unique for a videogame as WW1 has been criminally underused in a video game setting; the setting breaths a sense of fresh air, and is refreshing to see.
A vast improvement over Battlefield 4, it is graphically stunning even for a 2016 game, fun and sometimes upsetting. Overall, Battlefield 1 is a solid game and is a successful reimagination of the franchise. Check out a review to see more.
PS4 Pro support? Increased resolution and detail

7.Overwatch (Amazon Link)
Apex Legends borrowed a lot from Overwatch, it’s a classic arena shooter similar to Team Fortress 2 developed by Blizzard sitting two six-person teams of 21 drastically different characters with equally different abilities against each other in a cartoonish battle to the death.
The maps are varied and built with different game modes in mind such as King Of The Hill and Capture The Flag which gives the game a beautiful cohesive feel. All characters control differently and navigate the map in different ways.
You need to work together to win and if your a fan of FPS and squad-based games, in general, you will LOVE OverWatch

PS4 Pro support? Yes. 1080p with 60 fps. 4K UI overplay.
Similar Games: Apex Legends, Team Fortress 2
8.Destiny 2 (Amazon Link)
From Bungie, the creators of one of the most important FPS series of all time Halo, Destiny is an RPG focused FPS that improved on the formula of the first one in every way.
The story is a lot more developed with the old characters from the first game becoming a lot more fleshed out with newer characters being introduced, the shooting feels solid and responsive as you’d expect from Bungie. The main campaign can be completed in a few sessions but this game is all about the end game raids and the loot you can find with upgrading your character.
Destiny 2 is a far better game now than when it was released in 2017 due to DLC and Bungie constantly updating it, it’s even free on PS Plus so it won’t cost you a penny!
Check out this video discussing if it’s worth playing now, spoiler alert it is!
PS4 Pro support? Yes. 1080p with 60 fps

Third Person Shooters
In case, you’re not familiar with the battle royale game off 100 players of groups of 3 or solo in a face-off to the death that has “250 million” players and has moved into pop culture. The games cartoony graphics with its unique building mechanics really make it special and it’s spawned countless inferior copycats that don’t do it justice.
It’s got a reputation as a kids game and it is as a 16-year-old is now $3 Million Richer(NewYorkTimes) after playing the game. It is genuinely challenging and updates all the time with new seasons with tons of fresh content such as different maps and weapons like Apex Legends. The third-person shooting is solid and the game has a luck element as you need to open chests that spawn different guns and accessories like armour and med kids.
And the best part is? It is completely free for your PS4 and every other platform in existence and you don’t need PS Plus! Cool right? Check out this review from someone who started playing recently.
PS4 Pro support? Yes a delicious 60 fps!.

2.TOM CLANCY’S THE DIVISION 2 (Amazon Link)
The division 2 is a looter shooter like Borderlands and Ubisoft did the perfect sequel as it took everything that worked in the original game, improved the formula and made it better whilst listening to their customer feedback. Like Destiny 2 the fun is in the end game and with the grind, it excels with this mechanic.
You have tons to do with a solid story mode and better still Ubisoft will continue to update the game with new story missions, eight-player raids and much much more. If you like looter shooters you will have tons of fun with this game.
Check out my boys Jake Baldino’s review of it below.

The game that first popularised the battle royale genre PUBG has improved a lot since it was released in 2017 with more weapons, a better loot system, and increased character mobility.
The core gameplay is the same as you jump out of an aeroplane and transverse through the massive 4 different maps and find weapons and accessories such as body armour and try to be the last one standing. There’s also a lot of vehicles to drive to travel quicker.
It’s a simple game and helped popularise a genre, check out this PUBG player who put in 1000+ hours to see if PUBG is still worth playing.

1.Persona 5(Amazon Link)
Do you love JRPGS? Then persona 5 a game exclusive to the Playstation should be right up your alley, you’re a high school student that has to study and go school by day and fight with your team members against evil monsters by night, what’s not to like?
Persona 5 is the biggest Persona yet with a large world to explore,e numerous different characters to interact with complete with an interesting plot. The gameplay is a standard turn-based JRPG affair with the ability to defeat other peoples personas(corruption personified into demons) and even take personas yourself as a collect a monster mechanic.
Overall, if you like RPGs in general or Japan you should give Persona 5 a shot, it gets challenging but it’s a fantastic RPG that has tons of replay value as the way you interact with certain characters or what job you get in-game completely changes the game and story.
Check out a review of the fantastic JRPG down below.
PS4 Pro Support? No
Similar Games: Final Fantasy Series, Dragon Quest
2.Kingdom Hearts 3(Amazon Link)
Want Final Fantasy mixed with Disney? Well, Kingdom Hearts is the perfect blend, the series dates back to the PS2 released in 2002. Think of an action RPG with all your favourite Disney characters including Donald Duck, Goofy, Micky Mouse and even everyone from Toy Story!
The story is quite confusing even for those who played the 10 games between 2 and 3 and the combat could be more refined but there is no game like Kingdom Hearts 3 and you need to see a review to understand what your getting. It’s a crazy game but it’s a must if you grew up with Disney and like games like Final Fantasy.
PS4 Pro Support? Yes

3.Final Fantasy 15(Amazon Link)
Have you played Final Fantasy before? Final Fantasy 15 is an attempt by Square Enix to bring new players to the series for the first time and is set in an open world complete with flying cars and an abundance of fan service for its marketing.
Your group of 4 friends go on a road trip across the world with an easy 100 hours+ of content, the game was in development for 10 years and is packed full of things to see, side quests to do and monsters to hunt. The battle system might not be perfect but it’s a strong introduction to the final fantasy genre for first-timers and still feels like a Final Fantasy game.

PS4 Pro Support?: No

4.Monster Hunter World(Amazon Link)
Monster Hunter by the creators of Devil May Cry Capcom is a very very Japanese game and that is a great thing. Monster Hunter World is the series most accessible outing where you’re in a gorgeous open world filled full of monsters you have track find the best weapons for the job and eventually hunt.
This is a very unique game that opens up after several hours when you need to be very specific about what gear you get what you upgrade and what monsters you want to hunt. It isn’t mindlessly killing monsters, some monsters are extremely challenging and monsters are incredibly varied, you need to do everything from tracking them, find the best specific armour and then kill them. The sense of satisfaction you get after a lengthly victorious monster encounter is fantastic and you really feel like a monster hunter.
This game will not be for everyone but if you’re a fan of RPGs and thinking about your in-game choices you should love it, you can also enjoy it for up to 3 friends and best of all the difficulty scales! Check out a review down below.
PS4 Pro Support? Yes 4K, enhanced frame rate

1.The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt(Amazon Link)
Witcher 3 as a game shouldn’t have worked, it was the polish companies first step into the open-world genre as the older games were very linear. Witcher 3 didn’t just WORK it is arguably the game of this decade and one of the best game ever made.
You are Geralt of Rivia a Witcher who earns his living by slaying monsters and is blessed(cursed?) with magical monster powers. This is a true RPG masterpiece with an easy 100+ hours of gameplay to be had, with some of the best DLCS found in gaming.
I’ve only started playing and in the first hour you are blown away by the presentation value and you only just started the game. The combat is solid with a mixture of skills, potion creating and levelling up Geralt to suit your playstyle.
There is a lot to understand but if your an RPG fan this is simply a MUST and the game is more popular than ever due to the recent Netflix series. Simply put, BUY this game it is a modern masterpiece. Check out this video discussing why it’s the game of the decade.
PS4 Pro Support? 4K resolution and improved performance at 1080p.

2.Fallout 4(Amazon Link)
Fallout 1 first released in 1997 on PC and it’s RPG based combat set in a post-nuclear apocalypse, caused by a swift nuclear war between the USA & China is the perfect setting for a game. Fallout 4 is the latest edition(we can ignore Fallout3 76) by Bethesda that brings the adventure to Boston.
The game has packed full of side quests and things to do with the combat being an improvement from Fallout 3. Unfortunately, it lost a lot of roleplaying elements from the former games and your character speaking won’t suit die-hard RPG fans but the game is still solid and will last you 50+ hours.
Check out the review below, but if you like roleplaying games you should love Fallout 4 despite its shortcomings I personally thought it was a very good game packed full of things to do and I was sad when it ended.
PS4 Pro Support: Yes 4K, 60 FPS

3.Deus Ex: Mankind Divided(Amazon Link)
The beauty of Deus Ex is it’s completely up to you on how you approach the game. the game is set in Prague as you Adam Jenson a special agent powerful cyborg is tasked with dealing with a terrorist organisation(aka the Illuminati)
You can approach your main missions and various side quests in completely different ways, either use stealth and travel through the world using secret pathways or just go all guns blazing and kill everyone(or choose not to). You use your exp to level up Jenson with unique abilities and both the combat and story are fantastic, and the story goes into some dark and interesting places about touching topics involving cyborgs and world politics.
I really enjoyed Deus Ex and if you love a game that can be completed in many different ways with your choices actually making a difference to what happens, I cannot recommend Deus Ex enough.

4.The Outer Worlds(Amazon Link)
Developed by Obsidian the creators of the fantastic Fallout New Vegas, starts as your character a frozen colonist, is reawakened by from frozen sleep by a mad scientist and puts you into a Fallout style Blade Runner Esque world. This is a true western role-playing game as you can make your character whoever they want, there is TONS of dialogue in this game most of it optional so it really rewards people who enjoy consuming all the lore and getting emersed in the gaming world.
The shooting is fantastic and responsive despite it being an RPG with stats you choose in the beginning to mould your character and you pick up perks with every 2 levels and every level you can put points into your key skills to match how you play. Think games like Fallout 3 and Skyrim and you would be correct.
The game is fantastic and solidifies Obsidian as the best creator of these types of western RPG. It isn’t quite an open world but rather has several considerable different worlds that you can fly to, they each are very differently graphically and have tons of side quests to sink your teeth into.
Check out a review of the game that’s a lot more than Fallout in space down below.

1.God Of War (Amazon Link)
God Of War almost didn’t happen as the developer David Jaffe had to pitch seriously to Sony that his over the shoulder reboot of a stagnant series could be successful. Luckily,y Sony listened to him and one of the best games of this generation, with an utterly phenomenal combat system was created.
The story starts with Kratos and his son Atreus needed to fulfil Kratos deceased wife’s last wish of placing her ashes in the highest peak of the lands.
I was blown away by the graphics even on a base PS4, the game looks and feels amazing. The game is very challenging even on normal and is easy 50+ hours with fantastic characters and strong RPG elements of unlocking new moves/armour for Kratos and Atreus.
Honestly, this is one of the best games I have ever played and everything from the gameplay, story and graphics are fantastic. This is a MUST buy if you have a PS4 it really is that simple.
Check out a review of the fantastic game below.

2.Horizon Zero Dawn(Amazon Link)
Picture a gorgeous post-apocalyptic world full of roaming robotic beasts and humanity regressing back into primate tribal culture, that is the visually stunning world of Horizon Zero Dawn, think of Matrix if the robots won.
You play as Alloy, a fierce Celtic like warrior who has numerous melee attacks, traps, bows and different bow types at her disposal. The combat is fantastic and fighting with these giant robots is truly a sight to behold. The game has 30 hours of content and there is a lot to do, from completing the main quest to numerous side quests such as monster hunting and completing the world map.
The developer of Killzone shouldn’t have made a game this different be so good yet they have. Like God Of War, this is a must-play for PS4 owner and is one of the best games of this generation, it just screams uniqueness.

3.Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain(Amazon Link)
Metal Gear Solid is one of the best influential gaming series ever made and is the last game in the series to be completely designed by the fantastic Hideo Kojima the creator of Death Stranding. The plot has always been difficult in metal gear but this one, in particular, can be very difficult to understand but the gameplay is as complicated but there’s SO much to do.
The gameplay is fantastic as you can either treat it as a stealth game or a standard FPS which is fine as the shooting feels nice and responsive. Most of the time your finding resources to improve your home base, and completing missions feels very rewarding due to the difficulty of the game.
When you start upgrading the weapons and having different troops to deploy is where the game really shines, some people have put 400+ hours into this game as it has so much replay value.
If you’re a fan of micromanagement or stealth games in general Metal Gear Solid 5 is a must by. Check out a review of the game here.

4.Dark Souls 3(Amazon Link)
Do you enjoy an extremely difficult gaming experience that is as rewarding as it’s challenging? Then you need to play the Dark Souls series, it is infamous for being super challenging but when you die it’s your fault which I love in games.
It has RPG mechanics where you level up your character and chooses how you want to play, whether you focus on sword & shield or use more magic the choice is completely dependent on your playstyle. The soul games have defined modern gaming of returning to gaming roots when games were very difficult and challenging and this is a fitting end to. a fantastic trilogy

From the creators of Dark Souls Bloodbourne, is a punishingly difficult third-person action game that is also part gothic horror with dark unnerving enemies at every corner filled with a gothic atmosphere. It is PS4s first true exclusive and is still one of the best games on the system.
To succeed you must master the various weapons in your arsenal from swords to old fashioned guns, and completely memorise the various grotesque enemies attack patterns and punish them accordingly.
If you’re into third-person action games Bloodbourne is one of the best ever and it’s so full of gothic horror you genuinely will get scared at times. Check out a review of the fantastic game under your screen.

6.Death Stranding(Amazon Link)
The debut game from Kojima Productions is unlike any game you have ever played and maybe ever will play. You are Sam Bridges a courier/UPS man whos purpose is reconnecting the “united cities of America’ in an unforgiving post-apocalyptic world. You’re tasked with delivering packages across the vast open-world getting a better score and rewards based on the condition of your package.
The game combines the genres of survival horror, stealth, exploration and many more into one unique package. Whilst the game can be slow at times I think Kojima is trying to create something that isn’t a game but more like a playable movie. The story whilst somewhat messy has some great performances from the likes of Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen. and genuinely becomes quite moving at the sense of adversity everyone is feeling in this horrible world, but there is still innate goodness to be seen.
The game divided reviewers and its reputation and is one of the most split of any game in recent years. However, check out a review to see someones take on it.

7.Rise of the Tomb Raider(Amazon Link)
This was released two decades after the original Tomb Raider game was released on the PS1, and brings Laura into a more mature story set in an open world Siberia. You shoot guns, explore, do side quests and platform all in one game and that’s tons of stuff to do.
If you a fan of games like Far Cry or Uncharted you should love this game, and whilst the characters aren’t as developed as Uncharted you get enough content to really care about what happens to them which is always good. Overall, the game is solid and if your a fan of third-person action games you will like this game.

8.Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice(Amazon Link)
Hellblade is the developer Ninja Theory’s first try of publishing their own game and it follows the Celtic warrior Senua who is suffering from serious psychosis to travel to hell to find her long lost lover.
The combat is hack and slash and whilst not the games biggest strength is solid, but what makes it special is the game uses an alarming mix of binaural audio and visual techniques to simulate Senua experience of psychosis to a very effective manner. This game NEEDS to be played on Headphones to truly experience it.
This game deserves credit for highlighting the struggles of dealing with mental health, and it’s both disturbing and deeply enjoyable to play. It has cool features like lacking any in-game HUD and if you die a certain amount of times your save file gets deleted!
The game whilst short at 6 hours can be picked up very cheaply, and just deserves a playthrough. Check out a review down below.

Pick the stance that suits your own unique playstyle, and fall in love with the dynamic yet difficult combat system.
It’s doesn’t stop there every weapon has a unique set of moves and style which makes mastering a new weapon a unique challenge in itself. Nioh isn’t as punishing as souls but you WILL die often and got frustrated but that’s half the fun in these games because they are so difficult.

10.Nier: Automata(Amazon Link)
Nier Automata is a very Japanese game from the designer Takahisa Taura which is a sequel and improves the original Nier released in 2010 for the Xbox 360/PS3. The setting is a post-apocalyptic where you play as one of three playable androids sent to Earth to destroy evil robots. Yes, very Japanese but the story is fantastic and comes really ties together well.
Nier always switching up the gameplay from a hack and slash Devil Mary Cry style gameplay to a side-scrolling shooter and then making you control a ship you never know what it’s throwing you.
It’s an RPG as you always need to upgrade your character’s weapons and you play as 3 different characters with completely different perspectives of the same story. Depending on how you play the game your ending will dramatically be different and your decisions do matter.
Nier is a unique experience with massive replay value and seeing the story unfold is a great experience. Take a peek at this review to truly see the different gameplay elements on how much variety you get in one game.

Devil May Cry has always been so much more than a fantastic hack and slashes it’s about killing all the enemies and mythical demons in style. The 5th instalment Devil May Cry 5 returns to the Dante the half-human half-demon we know and love instead of the inferior reboot version.
You play as three distinct characters full of unique personality and like different weapons in Nioh all characters control completely differently with unique properties and abilities. Combat is swift and action-packed with a lot of depth in combos and upgrades and although the roughly 10-12 campaign ends somewhat abruptly it will keep you hooked throughout.
Devil May Cry is one of the finest action series ever, and Devil May Cry 5 was a fantastic return to form and set an exciting future and Capcom issued an industry standard on what action can be. Check out a review down below.

Uncharted 4 sold nearly 3 million copies in its first week and is considered one of the greatest games of all time. If your unfamiliar with the series think Indiana Jones and your close. This game concludes the story of Nathan Drake and is full of such phenomenal setpieces which make you feel like your playing a cinematic movie.
The gameplay puzzles, exploration solid third-person shooting and with some parkour and driving segments. It is quite varied and what makes Uncharted is the story. You really care about these flawed heroes such as Drake & Sally and the game really dips deep and writes them to seem like real people better than most movies or TV shows.
This is a fantastic end to one of PlayStations most important character Nathan Drake. It is one of the PS4s best selling PS4 games and is reason enough to buy a PS4 just to play this game, just embrace your exclusivity

15.The Last Of Us Remastered(Amazon Link)
The Last Of Us cemented Naughty Dog as an industry great as it’s, touching and very real depiction of post-apocalyptic USA pushes the framework of what a game is and can be. The script and character development is one of the gamings best and the way Joel and Ellie’s relationship slowly developers is phenomenal character development and better than most TV shows.
Whilst The Last Of Us was gorgeous on the PS3 this remaster increases the performance, graphics and draw distance making this terrible yet all too familiar world feel even more real. This remaster includes the DLC left behind where you play as Ellie, giving you another reason to pick it up.
Really this game deserves to be played and whilst I don’t think the gameplay is as good as the story, the whole experience of what Naughty Dog created is nothing short of astounding it’s one of the best-reviewed games ever and it’s a must-buy exclusive for your PS4.

Resident Evil 7 was Capcoms attempt to reboot the adored horror franchise into straight horror with a 1st person perspective and it paid off. Resident Evil 7 despite it being 1st person feels so Resident Evil with the creepy monsters, creepy house and one of the best antagonists in gaming horror history relentlessly tracking you down.
Resident Evil 7 is a true survival horror game and is the most Resident Evil game since Resident evil revelations, the soundtrack steals the show as the sense of dread follows you everywhere, what makes it scary is your character Ethan Winters is a normal guy whos just trying to track down his wife.
If you’re a fan of horror games or just want a fantastic single-player experience with tons of replay value please give Resident Evil a shot, it also is one of the best games of experience on VR just be careful playing it at night alone as you might poop your pants!

Resident Evil 2 is the best remake of any game ever and sets the standard of what a remake can be. The polygon graphics of the PS1 are replaced with crisp 4K HDR and seeing a man get eaten alive in 4K is a whole different experience.
Racoon City, Leon & Claire are all here with an over the shoulder combat system and the same inventory management of Resident Evil 7 and overall the game is just scary and a joy to play. It’s a fantastic remake and expect an improvement from the original in every way from a better more realistic script to everything just looking gorgeous
Check out a review down below but like Resident evil 7 this is one of the best horror games you will ever play.

2.GTA V(Amazon Link)
One of the best-reviewed games of all time with numerous 10s across the board GTA V is an updated version of the game and sets you as three different playable characters, Trevor, Franklin and Michael in an almost photo-real depiction of Los Angeled, filled with cars to drive people to see and crazy missions to do.
It is a massive sandbox game, filled with tons of things to do such as playing golf, tennis and even yoga you can easily put it 100+ hours into the single-player alone which isn’t even talking about the multiplayer.
The multiplayer is so varied and packed full of content I cannot do it justice, people spend hours upon hours grinding for in-game currency and it isn’t difficult to see why.
GTA V is unique as it is one of the best games if not the best in both console generations, with the PS4 version improving on the PS4 version in every way possible. Check out a review if you need more convincing.
