If you had to choose the best PS4 games, which ones would you choose? Uncharted 4? The Last of Us? The Witcher 3? Bloodborne? For us, these are the top 20 titles that have appeared for the Sony’s console so far.
Today we choose the best PS4 games, the fourth console of Sony desktop that has been almost two years between us and more than ten million units sold. Among its most notable features is the redesign of the DualShock, breaking with the tradition established by the first PlayStation in favor of better ergonomics and triggers that do not “slip”; An architecture much more accessible, to avoid all the problems that brought of head to the developers with PS3; And the inclusion of the Share button, which lets you instantly share images and videos of our games on popular social networks.
The eighth generation started slowly and with some other setbacks, due to the large number of companies that refused to leave the gigantic user base with what PS3 and Xbox 360 still have. This has caused us to see many intergenerational games , Which belong neither to one world nor to another and which, if they appeared only for the current consoles, could be much superior. But little by little the trend is changing and we already have among us a handful of games that have managed to exclaim with pride that “this is next-gen!”.
That is why the bulk of titles that make up the list could well belong to the top 20 PS3 games (in fact, there are some that repeat …). But do not be afraid, although the ranking that we present today attends to what can be found on the shelves of stores, I WILL BE UPDATING THE LIST AS THE NEW MARKET (AND BEST) GAMES PLAYSTATION 4. But not the Let’s hope for more, here you have the best games on PlayStation 4.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided unites the best of several genres in a very complete title, with a dense and fast argument, and a spectacular visual section.

6. FALLOUT 4
Launch: November 10, 2015
The return to the wilderness has been made to beg, but the Bethesda boys have not disappointed. Fallout 4 brings to PS4 all the action and post-apocalyptic cut-out RPG that have made the saga win a true legion of followers in the past, expanding and improving Nuka Cola’s secret formula along the way.
