10. Days Gone (PS4)
Days Gone had a bit of a tough time upon its 2019 launch, but since then, Sony Bend has worked tirelessly to bring this epic open-world experience up to snuff. So much so that it can now be considered a pretty great PS4 exclusive. The tale of Deacon St. John is a surprisingly fascinating one, complete with hours of content and zombie hordes to dispose of once all is said and done. And with a sequel most likely on the way, there has never been a better time to experience the brutal world of Days Gone. Grab that motorbike and hit the dirt road.

Since this is the Royal Edition of Final Fantasy XV, you're getting a whole lot more than just the base game with a PS Plus subscription. Nearly every piece of post-launch DLC will be included in this adventure across Eos with Noctis and friends. A new real-time battle system ditches the turn-based nature of the past, allowing you to do what comes naturally in the heat of a fight. That's not to say there's no downtime, however. Kick back and relax next to the campfire or take the Regalia for a spin. As we wait for Final Fantasy XVI, giving the fifteenth entry a good look sounds like a great idea to us.

Fans of ICO and Shadow of the Colossus simply must play the latest Famito Ueda masterpiece via the PS Plus Collection — if they haven't already done so, of course. The relationship built up between the male protagonist and Trico over the course of roughly 12 hours is a supremely special and emotional one, even if the controls do get in the way every so often. If you need a break from the violence of video games for something more spiritual and laid back, The Last Guardian suits the mood perfectly. An unforgettable experience, that's for sure.

While it does come with the baggage of having to play the previous three games, Naughty Dog's first original project for PS4 was its best ever at the time. Complete with breathtaking set pieces, memorable moments, and a push towards more open-ended levels, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End laid some of the groundwork for what the developer would achieve in The Last of Us: Part II. That doesn't take away from the fact that this was one of 2016's greatest titles. The story of Nathan Drake comes to a conclusion, and it's one more than worth witnessing for yourself.

Who knows if we'll be able to play the franchise's fifth mainline entry on PS5, but for now, at least we have free access to Fallout 4. The open-world RPG should be familiar to most, offering a huge open world to explore, NPCs to talk to, and a long list of side quests to keep you coming back for more. Purchase the game's DLC and you've easily got a 100+ hour game to work through when the PS5 release schedule dries up. What's not to love? Grab a suit of Power Armour and get lost in the world of Fallout 4.

Of course The Last of Us Remastered was going to make this list. While it is showing its age now, those declining visuals take nothing away from the tale of Ellie and Joel's pursuit of the Fireflies. Learn of the setup for the game's outstanding sequel with stealth-focused gameplay, intense firefights, and sneaky sprints through the dilapidated ruins of post-apocalyptic America. Don't forget about the multiplayer either — it's a pretty cool take on those traditional modes we all know thanks to a settlement mechanic that has you looking after virtual survivors. The Last of Us Remastered still holds up to this day, making it another PS4 great.

Capcom only went and put out the biggest game in its history with Monster Hunter: World, bringing the act of slaughtering monsters to the masses with a refined gameplay loop and more approachable menus and mechanics. Seriously, you can't go back to the older titles after playing World — it's that much of a step forward. Bring your friends along for some online co-op action too, forging the best weapons and collecting armour sets along the way. And if you're enjoying the ride, there's the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion waiting for you. That will add another 30 hours to your playtime, making this yet another huge timesink if you're starved for PS5 games.

What many consider to be the very best Souls game from FromSoftware creator Hidetaka Miyazaki was always going to make this list, and now it's time for you to find out why it is held in such high regard. Bloodborne takes the genre in a new direction, emphasizing dodging and aggressive grabs for health rather than hiding behind a shield. Incredible enemy and boss designs accompany the Lovecraftian setting to great effect, creating a fascinating but foreboding world to explore. Give it a 60 frames-per-second patch and this is the closest we get to perfection, for now. An outstanding undertaking you simply must play.

Talk about value for money! Persona 5 will last you well over 100 hours if you're gunning for completion, and every one of them is jam-packed with super stylish action, menus, characters, and stories. Steal the hearts of society's very worst members, form friendships and relationships, and make sure you pass your exams at school! You decide which of those factors is the most important. While you won't gain access to the new content Persona 5 Royal brings with it, this is still one of the very best RPGs on PS4. An essential playthrough for all fans of the genre.

God of War comes out on top once again as Sony Santa Monica's soft reboot of the series triumphs with characters you can actually care for (unlike the previous games), a gripping narrative, and thoroughly enjoyable combat and exploration. Just throw the Leviathan Axe for the first time and you'll know exactly what we mean. And with God of War Ragnarok planned for release on PS5 next year, this is the perfect opportunity to kickstart the story of Kratos and Atreus at no extra cost. One of the very best PS4 games that belongs in your digital collection — go on, get it downloaded and start playing!
