The best PS4 games in 2024

Now that we have the PS5, you'd be forgiven for wondering why you should care about the best PS4 games. But Sony's last-generation console is still wildly popular and perfectly capable at delivering some compelling gaming experiences. 

And thanks to a very mature library, as well as being able to run on the PS5 thanks to backwards compatibility, this list contains a range of games that are very much worth playing today. These range from epic action titles like the rebooted God of War to Tetris and the odd Death Stranding. 

So if you've got a gap in your PS4 library or just want to know what we consider are the best PS4 games, then read on.
