The PlayStation 5 is a powerful console, but that doesn't mean you should ignore the PS4. It has a mature library of games that are still worth playing today. From epic action titles like the rebooted God of War to Tetris and Death Stranding, there's something for everyone.
Bloodborneis one of the most evocative and fascinating games from developer FromSoftware. It's a challenging game that requires you to be aggressive in combat and rewards you with weapon and health regeneration if you attack at the right time.
The game takes you through a dark, Gothic Victorian version of London and other dimensions with a spooky dose of terror. You'll fight and die against horrible creatures and dexterous enemies, but every death is a learning moment.
Devil May Cry 5is an excellent action game that satisfies long-time fans and welcomes newcomers. You'll play as supernatural warriors Dante, Nero, and V and fight against huge and grotesque enemies with a combination of gunshots, swords, and platforms.
It can be difficult, but once you find your rhythm, combat is its own reward.
Elden Ringis an essential game for anyone who likes challenges and exploration. You'll take on deep combat from the Dark Souls series, add some of the fluidity of Bloodborne, and explore a vast open world full of secrets and dreadful enemies. You can become a supertank warrior with colossal swords or bombard enemies with gigantic rock spells and the power of the cosmos.
God of War is back after a five-year hiatus and it's very different. Kratos is now a family man trying to balance his deified past with his devotion to his teenage son, Atreus. You'll fight against new mythical beasts in Scandinavia with a combination of gunshots, swords, and platforms.
Mortal Kombat 11shows that the series still has plenty of surprises to offer.
In addition to a solid story mode and tons of unlockable single-player content, it offers refined and strategic one-on-one combat that prioritizes distance, variety, and the judicious application of limited super moves. And don't forget about Persona 5, which has an excellent story mode despite the lousy movie. Finally, Ratchet & Clank (201) restarts the classic platform game series in style and pits intergalactic adventurers Ratchet and Clank against President Drek.
