Guerrilla's open world action game was an early champion for HDR support, and it remains one of the best examples on PS4.

The Last of Us: Part II is comfortably one of the best looking PS4 games ever made, and frankly it looks absurdly beautiful with HDR. While its use of the technology is much more subtle than you’ll find in other games on this list, it just brings everything to life, adding yet another layer of authenticity to every scene. This game is bordering on photo-realistic.

Resi 2 obviously is a pretty dark game, and HDR support really helps to bring out the contrast in light sources when you're dodging zombies and searching for ammo. It's a good-looking game without it, but HDR really adds something to the atmosphere of Raccoon City.

Shadow of the Colossus is one of PS4's best remakes, and this stone cold classic looks amazing — especially with HDR active. The scarce landscape might be relatively bland, but light and shadow is really highlighted well here. You might need sunglasses for the light shimmer off Wander's sword.
