What are the best PS Plus games? PS Plus, also known as PlayStation Plus, is Sony's flagship subscription service for PS5 and PS4, providing online multiplayer functionality, cloud saves, and PS Store discounts. PS Plus also includes access to hundreds of games included at no extra cost, spanning three distinct subscription tiers: PS Plus Essential, PS Plus Extra, and PS Plus Premium. You can learn more about all three options and their various benefits with our PS Plus Memberships: All Three Tiers Explained guide – make sure to get a discount on your PS Plus membership once you've made your choice.

Depending on which PS Plus membership tier you're subscribed to, you'll be able to download and play an overwhelming number of games. Therefore, you may be wondering what the best PS Plus games are. That's why we've created this list, which sorts and curates the best PS Plus games currently available, based on your user ratings. This page will dynamically update, depending upon the availability of games within the PS Plus tiers, and your opinions.

For this page, we're combining all three tiers of PS Plus, including the PS Plus Collection (which is exclusive to PS5 users). That means there are some caveats to keep in mind: PS3 games, for example, are only available for PS Plus Premium members via cloud streaming. Some games are also only part of PS Plus in specific regions, and in instances where that applies, they'll be designated a regional flag next to their subscription tier.

Remember, if you're looking for a full list of All PS Plus Games, then you'll find that through the link. Also, if you feel your favourite is missing from this page, then remember that you can rate any game using the search box below. Your ratings will influence the rankings below, but of course a game will need to be available in an existing PS Plus subscription tier in order to be eligible.

Please note that a game will also need at least 50 ratings before it will appear on this list, so if one of your favourites is missing for whatever reason, that will be why. It's just to keep things consistent and fair across the board.

With all of that said, here's our list of best PS Plus games — as selected by you.

100. Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate (PS5)

There’s a snobbery among enthusiasts that suggests Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, without tightly animated sprites and mind-boggling button combos, is a lesser fighting title. Be that as it may, few brawlers have the sheer scope and scale of what’s on display here. With an ever-rotating ladder of inventive towers to tackle, a sprawling single player campaign, and an RPG-inspired loot system that lets you tailor all of the title’s characters to your tastes, NetherRealm Studios may not have produced an audience-attracting e-sport here, but it has delivered a damn good time.

99. Kena: Bridge of Spirits (PS5)

This is the debut game from developer Ember Lab, and it's a strong first effort. Kena: Bridge of Spirits gets top marks for its animation and visual flair, but it's also a very enjoyable action platformer. It puts us in mind of PS2 classics such as Jak & Daxter; you're traversing a sort-of open world environment, collecting things, solving puzzles, and engaging in simple yet surprisingly challenging combat. Those lovable Rot creatures and some tricky boss battles further cement this as a cult hit.

98. Lost Judgment (PS4)

Though it never reaches the same heights as its predecessor, detective thriller sequel Lost Judgment remains a great action RPG. With an intense story full of twists and carried by a brilliant cast of characters, the game is your typical Yakuza-style thrill ride — but it's actually the ridiculous amount of impressively varied side content that drives Yagami's sophomore case. An expanded, satisfying combat system is worthy of note as well.

97. inFAMOUS: Second Son (PS4)

Sucker Punch continues its popular superhero series with a brand new protagonist in inFAMOUS: Second Son. Taking the open world action to Seattle, you play as Delsin Rowe, a conduit with the amazing ability to absorb the powers of other superhumans. This gives you many more toys to play with as you progress, gaining unusual abilities based on smoke, neon, digital, and more. Exploring the city feels great, combat is fun and varied, and it looks fantastic — a great early showpiece for PS4.

96. Shadow of the Tomb Raider (PS4)

The conclusion to Crystal Dynamics' contemporary Tomb Raider series, Shadow of the Tomb Raider sees iconic protagonist Lara Croft saving the world from a near-doomsday disaster. There's a greater emphasis on platforming and puzzle solving in this instalment, and while the story's not necessarily the best, fans of cinematic action adventure titles will have a blast.

95. Gravity Rush 2 (PS4)

Expanding enormously on the original Gravity Rush game, sequel Gravity Rush 2 delivers a much bigger sandbox for protagonist Kat to float around in, while augmenting a ton of new powers too. The story gets a little off-the-wall, especially in its unexpected epilogue, but the traversal is exceptional throughout and the art direction is exquisite.

94. Sackboy: A Big Adventure (PS5)

With creator Media Molecule focusing its attention on PS4’s boundless sandbox Dreams, LittleBigPlanet’s whimsical weaved hero deserved his Super Mario 3D World moment. Sackboy: A Big Adventure doesn’t pull up any trees like its predecessors, but is instead a robust co-operative platformer with some memorable musical moments. With a cutesy DIY aesthetic and some surprisingly tight action, it excels in an area that Sony has often been accused of overlooking: fun for the whole family.

93. Assassin's Creed Odyssey (PS4)

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is much more of an open world RPG than it is a traditional Assassin's Creed title. The second instalment in the series' "open world trilogy", this ancient Greek adventure may overlook a lot of the game design that defined its predecessors, but there's no denying that its interlocking RPG systems make for a deep and engaging experience. Levelling up, loot, skill trees, and randomised elements like bounty-hunting mercenaries all play a part across a truly gigantic map. The story's not bad either, as protagonist Alexios or Kassandra embarks on a branching journey to learn the truth about his or her legendary bloodline.

92. Tekken 2 (PS1)

91. Mortal Kombat 11 (PS4)

Mortal Kombat 11’s spectacular presentation and crunching combat make it a headline entry in the long-running franchise. With an absolute mountain of single player content to get through, as well as an active competitive scene, this is one of the best fighters you can find on PS4.

90. PREY (PS4)

PREY made a valiant attempt to revitalise the franchise, and while it wasn't a big sales success, it remains an engrossing sci-fi thriller. You wake up aboard a mysterious space station, where you're the test subject for the betterment of humanity. Obviously, things go very wrong, and the station is overrun by hostile aliens. Featuring unique enemies, a non-linear location full of details, and imaginative new weapons, it's an atmospheric, tense first-person adventure that'll get under your skin.

89. Wolfenstein: The New Order (PS4)

Wolfenstein is a legendary franchise, but in this contemporary entry, developer MachineGames dragged it into the 21st century. Visceral combat and a sprawling single player campaign, packed with memorable locations, make The New Order one of the better FPS games on the PS4.

88. Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition (PS5)

We were tempted to just quote the entirety of Vergil's 'Bury the Light' theme here, but that would deny us an opportunity to rave about Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition on PS5. Simply put, this is an exceptional action game. It's Capcom at its absolute best, having crafted one of the greatest combat systems to ever grace the genre. In Special Edition, Vergil is the star of the show; unbelievably fun to play as and immaculately designed. This PS5 re-release also allows for instantaneous load times, a slew of graphics options, and the incredible Legendary Dark Knight mode.

87. The Evil Within 2 (PS4)

Bigger and better than its predecessor, The Evil Within 2 opts for more open environments to set its horror scares in as opposed to the dark, tight corridors of the original. This results in a much better experience with more player freedom, questions, and options — it's sort of a hidden gem at this point. Horror aficionados owe it to themselves to check out The Evil Within 2.

86. Kingdom Hearts III (PS4)

Love it or loathe it, the Kingdom Hearts series isn't going anywhere. Arguably at its peak with the third entry, Kingdom Hearts 3 is a love letter to both the bonkers story that came before it and the outstanding Disney worlds it encompasses. From Frozen to Toy Story, its fun and engaging combat system weaves its way through awe-inspiring environments, meeting famous Disney faces along the way. If you're not a fan, though, just Let It Go.

85. Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4)

Divisive? Well, it was, wasn’t it? Surprisingly so, in fact, given the sheer overwhelming success of predecessors Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. Rocksteady’s long anticipated Batman: Arkham Knight massively increased the scale of its sandbox, and issued you with a tank-like vehicle to help you navigate it. This was cleverly integrated into the series’ tried-and-trusted environmental puzzles, but some argued its car combat encounters were tedious and overused. Regardless of any criticism, when this threequel was on song it still exhibited the very best of the Arkham series, with crunching combat and a drizzly open world to explore.

84. The Last Guardian (PS4)

From the team behind ICO and Shadow of the Colossus, you shouldn't overlook The Last Guardian. This third game in the loosely connected trilogy has just as much heart and impact as the others — not to mention one of the most technically impressive AI companions yet seen. Playing as a small boy, you and a large, mysterious creature called Trico must escape from a crumbling, enigmatic place full of dangers. The bond you'll form with Trico — who gradually learns to trust and listen to you more as the game goes on — is unlike any other in video games, leading to an incredibly emotional and touching adventure.

83. Dishonored: Definitive Edition (PS4)

Arkane's debut game, Dishonored, remains one of its best, and this Definitive Edition lets you play an optimal version. Casting you as a supernatural assassin in a corrupt world, you get to explore a series of vast, open stages that really let you approach them in your own way. A combination of excellent mission design, a flexible suite of powers and weapons, and an intriguing story make for a true modern classic. The Definitive Edition finishes it all off with improved visuals and all the game's DLC, making for a great package.

82. Gravity Rush Remastered (PS4)

Sony ported over the beautiful PS Vita classic Gravity Rush and gave it an even more stunning facelift for PS4. This is the original game, complete with all its DLC, allowing you to fly about the land and turn the world upside down without the need for Sony's second handheld. It's a fantastic adventure more than worth experiencing, and then you can play the just as good sequel.

81. Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (PS3)

Before there was Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, Ninja Theory made a name for itself with action-adventure title Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. A beautiful journey through a post-apocalypse more about greenery and foliage than the downbeat landscapes of war-torn locations, combat and platforming are at the heart of the experience. It's still more than worth experiencing all these years later.

80. Puppeteer (PS3)

Released just a very short while before the PS4 hit, Puppeteer never got the accolades it deserved. This inventive platformer plays a lot like a real puppet show, transitioning between scenes with enjoyable encounters and sequences between jumps and leaps. It's a really fun title; a true PS3 swansong.

79. Alien: Isolation (PS4)

Alien: Isolation may have somewhat overstayed its welcome, but its nail-biting survival gameplay perfectly captures the claustrophobic tone of Ridley Scott’s iconic 1979 sci-fi movie. Assuming the role of Amanda Ripley, the daughter of series protagonist Ellen Ripley, you’re stalked from start-to-finish by the series’ deadly Xenomorph. Up against impossible odds, the game constantly keeps you on your toes, as you’re forced to slip past the enormous extraterrestrial unnoticed. It’s a completely unique experience that hasn’t really been replicated since.

78. Judgment (PS5)

It may have launched on PS4 not long before this PS5 port, but Judgment is so good that it deserves every chance at success that it can get. This Yakuza spinoff puts you in the sneakers of Takayuki Yagami, a private detective living in the heart of Kamurocho, a fictional red light district that's always teetering on the edge of chaos. Tangled up in a series of brutal murders, Yagami is forced to dig deep into the city's criminal underbelly, resulting in a truly gripping story. With a brilliant cast of characters, a great combat system, and a map that's stuffed with fun distractions, Judgment is right up there with the absolute best that Yakuza has to offer.

77. Days Gone (PS4)

After several years working on handhelds like PS Vita and PSP, Bend Studio marked its return to home consoles with its ambitious open world adventure Days Gone. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, the game’s biker motif made it stand out from the crowd, as your two-wheels became your sanctuary in an extremely hostile setting. A huge focus on story and some genuinely impressive tech allowed the developer to flex its muscle, and the release would go on to become a cult favourite among PS4 fans.

76. Assassin's Creed Origins (PS4)

A stunning recreation of ancient Egypt is the backdrop for Assassin's Creed Origins — a game that redefined Ubisoft's series. Going full open world and throwing a bunch of RPG systems into the mix, Origins breathed new life into Assassin's Creed after Unity and Syndicate struggled to leave a lasting impression. Origins follows the surprisingly emotional story of Bayek, a determined mystic and warrior, who, with the help of his estranged wife Aya, establishes the Hidden Ones — the precursor organisation that would one day become the Assassin Brotherhood.
