The re-release of Rockstar’s stunning open world game for the PlayStation 4, Grand Theft Auto V Next Generation blows the original out of the water in terms of visuals, but more importantly it adds a whole host of extra gameplay features and heist missions that bolster this already exceptional title to the point where it’s arguably one of the very best games you can play on your PlayStation.
Often mentioned when the “games as art” discussion rears its head, Shadow of the Colossus’ PS2 classic remains one of the best-ever titles to grace Sony’s previous console, and its follow-up, Shadow of the Colossus: The Definitive Edition, is every bit the masterpiece it was. With its bleak and empty world, somber music, and the haunting presence of those giant colossi, this is a game that really gets under your skin, making each victory all the more gratifying.

With some of the finest third-person melee combat in the business, a brilliantly dense narrative, and a style that’s sure to make you drool, Bloodborne is a must-have for the PlayStation 4.
