We're half way through 2020, and what an eventful six months it's been. Our world has been a chaotic place lately, and even the games industry has felt the effects of these unprecedented times. However, the show must go on, and despite everything, 2020 has delivered some cracking PlayStation 4 games. Here are our top 10 PS4 games of 2020 so far.
Hot on the heels of the brilliant Resident Evil 2 came this remake of the third entry. While it didn't quite live up to its predecessor, Resi 3 is still a thoroughly entertaining thrill ride. With the terrifying Nemesis on your tail, this more action-heavy horror title is a zombie-infested romp that wonderfully reimagines the PS1 outing.

We all know Arc System Works can make a fighting game, and Granblue Fantasy Versus is yet another example of the developer's fantastic talents. Based on the Japanese mega property of the same name, this is a relatively traditional fighter, but gorgeous visuals and a great roster of diverse characters elevate the experience. While it has had its fair share of balancing issues on a competitive level, there's still so much fun to be had here, and it even comes with its own surprisingly lengthy RPG mode. And to top it all off, the game's very easy to get into, offering accessible mechanics without sacrificing the eventual depth that more serious players seek out.
Kentucky Route Zero was a long time coming, but it finally arrived on PS4, and it was worth the wait. The episodic adventure game stands apart because it's constantly reinventing itself while telling an engaging story. It presents you with some bizarre scenes but it somehow all hangs together beautifully. The result is one of PS4's strangest yet most captivating adventures.
Let's face it, Zombie Army 4: Dead War isn't going to win any Game of the Year gongs, but gosh darn does it know how to have fun. Strung together by a daft story that involves Nazi zombies, the title takes place over a number of chapters, each of them sporting their own unique setting. You and up to three pals blast your way through these levels with all kinds of 1940s armaments, popping undead heads like there's no tomorrow. Zombie Army 4 is just so easy to pick up, and as soon as you start triggering that kill combo, you'll be hooked.
6. Nioh 2 (PS4)
There are sequels like The Last of Us 2, which subvert expectations in interesting ways – and then there are sequels like Nioh 2, which don’t. This hard-as-nails action RPG may be similar to its samurai-themed predecessor, but the original was a pleasant surprise on the PS4, and its successor is still thoroughly entertaining. Pulsating combat pairs with imaginative environments to make for a fantastical journey through Feudal Japan.
