There's a good chance you’ve already bought Skyrim at least once before, because at this point, who hasn’t? There’s a reason for its popularity, however. Skyrim is one of the jewels of Bethesda’s RPG crown, even today. Its near-limitless gameplay opportunities have become legendary, allowing the player to craft their own narrative or forgo one altogether. Special Edition adds not only every DLC, but mod support to make your latest playthrough just as fresh and exciting as your first.

The game hasn’t aged as gracefully as others on this list, but there is undeniable magic here and, of course, a huge sequel to dive into.

2K Games brought back the very first Mafia game with this gorgeous remake. It's faithful to the PS2 original, retelling the story with all new cutscenes and presenting everything with a PS4 coat of paint. While some of the original's quirks remain, like iffy vehicle controls, this is absolutely the best way to play Mafia. Definitive Edition, indeed.

Remember when you saw Toy Story and wondered “when will video games look this good?” You can stop wondering, because Ratchet and Clank is not only one of the best looking titles on PS4, but also one of the finest action platformers. The dialogue is laugh-out-loud funny at times, and the whole thing is tied together with so much charm that it’s difficult not to love the furry protagonist and his little robot buddy.
