Best PS4 Games 2016: 20 essential PS4 games

Sam Loveridge



A round-up best PS4 games available right now for you to add to your collection. Bookmark this page for regular updates as new games come out.

2016 continues to deliver amazing games and shows no signs of slowing down. In the month of May we've seen Uncharted 4, Doom and Overwatch and are about to discover what other amazing titles will be coming from E3.

While Sony is rumoured to be announcing a new version of the PS4, potentially called the PS4 Neo, there's plenty of speculation about what this could bring in terms of a graphics bump. Most of the specs have already been leaked for the new console, so if you're interested to see how much better it is than the current PS4, click here.

For example, 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.

But if you're looking for a PS4 game that will test your brain power while giving you all the feels, then you've got to play Unravel and meet little Yarny.

We've recently added Firewatch, too, a story-driven adventure that's beautiful, gripping and haunting – a must-have for anyone who enjoys this style of game.

There are several upcoming games to put in your diary too, including The Division from Ubisoft, Far Cry Primal and the latest instalment in the Hitman series.

We've seen a whole army of games launch for Sony's latest console over the past year, and although we're missing a few – Uncharted 4 for one – it's still been a great year for gaming.

The PS4 gained excellent exclusives like Bloodborne or the papercraft Tearaway Unfolded over the past 12 months, 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 – including me.

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...?
