Everyone has a game that they always find themselves coming back to. Whether it's to fill the gap between new releases or because it's simply a joy to play, there are now numerous titles on PlayStation 4 that are perfect for such a role -- games that are able to pull you back in time and time again, always giving you something to do or work towards. Below, we've listed what we think are the most addictive PS4 loot and grind games.

15. Toukiden 2

Publisher: Koei Tecmo / Developer: Omega Force
Release Date: 21st Mar 2017 (USA) / 24th Mar 2017 (UK/EU)

Pitting you against often gigantic demons, Toukiden 2 has an awful lot in common with Monster Hunter, but unlike Capcom's finest, there's a winding RPG storyline that ties Toukiden together -- but obviously, that particular strength is not why it's on this list. The grind in Toukiden 2 is good fun, as you lop off the limbs of your enemies in order to loot specific items. There are several different weapon types to master, too, giving the combat an addictive long-term quality.

14. Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2

Release Date: 25th Oct 2016 (USA) / 28th Oct 2016 (UK/EU)

It may come as a surprise to some of you, but Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2 isn't really a fighting game. In fact, it's got more in common with an MMO in terms of structure -- it just happens to have a full-blown fighting game combat system. By taking on and completing missions with your fully customisable hero, you steadily unlock new moves, abilities, and costumes. Needless to say, XenoVerse 2 is a must for fans of the source material, but even newcomers may find something to love in the game's colourful presentation and wealth of content.

13. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection

Release Date: 24th Mar 2015 (USA) / 27th Mar 2015 (UK/EU)

When it comes to lootin' and shootin' few games can match Borderlands' love for showering you with more guns than you know what to do with. Randomly rolled weapons and equipment means that you can grind for hours on end and always walk away with a brand new toy, and with The Handsome Collection featuring not one but two full games, this remastered bundle is an easy recommendation on PS4.

12. No Man's Sky

Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment / Developer: Hello Games
Release Date: 9th Aug 2016 (USA) / 10th Aug 2016 (UK/EU)

No Man's Sky has come a long, long way since it first launched, and although it doesn't place a heavy emphasis on loot, there's a definite grind to exploring the game's procedurally generated universe. Hopping from planet to planet, there's a near infinite amount of adventure to be had here, and there's always some kind of upgrade or milestone to chase. You never quite know what's around the next corner, and that's an especially addictive quality.

11. The Division 2

Publisher: Ubisoft / Developer: Massive Entertainment
Release Date: 15th Mar 2019 (USA) / 15th Mar 2019 (UK/EU)

Although it may not have the most interesting loot pools in gaming (good old knee pads), there's still a lot to like about The Division 2 and the way that it keeps you scavenging for better and better gear. Thanks to a dynamic open world that's a lot of fun to explore, beefing up your agent -- especially as you work your way through the story for the first time -- is always engaging.
