Best PS4 Games 2016

A round-up of the best PS4 games you can buy right now and add to your collection. Bookmark this page for regular updates as new excellent titles are launched.

2016 has already been a standout year for gaming. The past couple of months have delivered plenty of Game of the Year contenders like Uncharted 4, Doom and Overwatch and E3 teased some of the amazing titles we'll be playing in the weeks and months to come.

While Sony has finally confirmed the PS4 Neo, we're still awaiting an official unveiling to see exactly what the upgraded hardware is capable of. Most of its specs have already been leaked, so if you're interested to see how much better it is than the current PS4, click here.

However, when it comes to games, you're already spoiled for choice. If you love a puzzler, you need to play the latest game from Braid creator Jonathan Blow: The Witness. It has the TrustedReviews Games team scribbling furiously in notebooks, taking photos of puzzles with our phone and scratching heads.

Or there's the powerfully emotional This War of Mine: The Little Ones that will have you making the hardest decisions and wanting to cry.

2015 also saw some great PS4-exclusives like Bloodborne or the papercraft Tearaway Unfolded, but there's also been a vast collection of top notch third-party, cross-platform games that you really need to play.

For example, there's the tense and tactical FPS Rainbow Six: Siege, or the latest entry in the addictive multiplayer series Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

Or, if those don't float your boat, there's the apocalypse RPG Fallout 4 or Ubisoft's Assasssin's Creed Syndicate.

Plus, anyone with a penchant for Lego needs to try out Lego Dimensions, the toys-to-life game that's fun for kids of all ages, with Warner Bros. recently announcing the second wave of toys coming to the game, including E.T., Ghostbusters and Harry Potter.

How the hell can you give GTAV a 10 out of 10 when this game is fucked up by placing gamers in bad sport lobbys.

When you talk about Great games, it's pretty much GTA and Witcher 3 on PS4 right now... everything else feels underwhelming longer term.

I don't want to see anyone say Call of Duty, because that game is a joke when you compare it to actual great games.

Witcher 3 is nothing short of a masterpiece, sadly a lot of people won't even try it, because they're too wrapped up in this disgraceful era of run of the mill FPS games, to actually adapt and play RPGs.

One game I wish they'd release in EU/NA is Dragons Dogma Online... if it's anything like Dark Arisen on PS3, it will be a superb game.

we need more great RPGs on PS4 right now.

I'm into both. I like the Witcher 3 and bought it because I knew it was known to be one of the most well developed and most rich games available, so thought it would be the best to use to explore the potential of the PS4. Saying that I also own Black Ops 3 and have all the COD series on PS3 so... I guess I'm just odd.

Why are you bashing on fps mutiplayers? You cant aim? Are you forever the christmas noob? People dont try rpg games because fps has a social aspect that single player rpg doesnt. Get out of your moms house and try socializing

It could also be argued that some people don't need a social aspect to their games, bc their social life is separate from their gaming time.

Your RPG stereotype is a pretty by the numbers statement. It can also be said that FPS gamers sit in their mom's basement, smoke weed, and talk sh** to online strangers all day....but that would be generalizing all of them. Not fair, right...?

Socializing? Listening to a bunch of rugrats swear and disrespect you and everyone else is fun? I been there done that......Totally tired of online gaming........the limited conversation of 12 yr olds with teenage angst has worn me out for the decade!

GTA V is awesome! Bad sport lobby eh? Im sorry........ someone thought it might be more fun for others if you played with people more to your gaming style. The bad sport lobby isnt a problem.....its a solution! And it may be that someone ends up there who shouldnt be....for the most part.....its those who should be. Glad to have a referee.....too bad they're not tougher on the crap!

Just Cause 3 is broken on PS4. Massive slowdown that freezes the game. Do not buy it until a patch is made to fix it.
