The PlayStation 4 is eight years old, and in that time it has amassed one of the most incredible game libraries on any console. From Sony’s own exclusives to third-party titles that rival the best of them, the PS4 has a little something for everyone. Whether you’re upgrading to a PS5, pulling a dusty PlayStation out of the closet for a quick nostalgia trip or just looking for some new games to enjoy, we’ve got your back.
Whether you’re a long-time fan of the franchise or just getting started with Lara Croft, the reimagined Rise of the Tomb Raider is a must-own for any PS4 owner.

With its unforgiving monsters and traps around every corner, Bloodborne is a dark and brutal action-adventure that stands tall among the platform’s best.

Another big hit that launched the console to unprecedented heights is the sci-fi RPG Horizon Zero Dawn. It’s an incredibly engrossing experience that allows players to explore a post-apocalyptic science fiction world that’s populated by survivors, Timefall rain showers that age anything they touch and ‘Beached Things’ (BTs) that can’t pass on. It’s a hugely impressive title that set the bar for what we’ve come to expect from games like this in the wake of Hideo Kojima’s departure from the company.
