The stats are in and the new PS4 is not only doing better than ever before, but there are 5 top games that have risen out of all the choices on the platform to be to pick for gamers. They are mostly first person shooters with multi-player capability; this remains the most popular gaming style on the home entertainment systems. One thing that does stand out about these top games is that there is a fair amount of superheroes represented. This may be due to the recent success of many Marvel films in the box office.
Game #1 – Injustice: Gods among Us
From the makers of Mortal Kombat this is an exciting new release that features a whole new range of fighters you can select from. There is everyone here from superheroes to mythical gods in the lineup. The game play is still a 2-D one on one style, but there are more options for multi-player competitions than ever before.
Game #2 – Child of Light
One thing that makes this RPG game stand out is it was designed with the help of Cirque de Soleil. It is set in a faerie land where you are placed to help Aurora on her quests. The game play is classic and features turn based combat, so traditional fans of RPG play will love it; but the graphics and richness of the world will keep newcomers happy with the non-first person combat style too.
Game #3 – Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate
Arkham Origins Blackgate is set about 5 years before Arkham Asylum and there is a lot to this backstory to discover. It is considered to be a “stealth” combat game and is mostly presented in the first person. There are many characters you can play and the quality of the narration, voice overs, action and graphics is beyond cinematic.
Game #4 – Rogue Legacy
Rogue Legacy is an offshoot of the popular Rogue series. In Legacy you continue on when you die in the form of your child. Each child in the game progresses through the generating castle in a 2D adventure platform gaining in heroic activities. The game play is rich and the mapping is complicated. There are many challenges and skills tests you will recognize from Rogue, which has led this to be referred to as “Rogue-Lite.”
Game #5 – Watchdog
Watchdog is one of the best first person combination games around. You can adventure solo or join a team. The idea is to control the city via a combination of hacking the city’s infrastructure controls, racing and sheer combat. The switch from one tactic to another keeps things interesting. It also benefits from a tight linear storyline.
When is Minecraft Coming to PS4?
The big question for a lot of fans is when Minecraft is going to come to the PS4. It proved wildly popular on the PS3 platform but the creators haven’t quite got up with the changes needed to make it work on the PS4 system. Rumor has it that a holiday release might be coming, but it could just as well be delayed until a PS5 is issued.
