Real-world Formula One drivers are fitter than most athletes, so F1 2021 unquestionably qualifies as one of the best sports games for PS4. Key additions include a cinematic story mode called Braking Point, which peeks behind the curtain of what it takes to make it onto the podium. There's also a co-op Career mode, which has comfortably steered this motorsport ace onto our list.

FIFA 22’s last-gen version may lack the heavily advertised HyperMotion Technology of its PS5 peer, but a rewrite to goalkeepers along with some overall improvements to physics and artificial intelligence still make it the best football game on PS4. With a deeper Player Career and a minigame-fuelled reimagining of street football side-mode VOLTA, this is a title that aims for the top bins – and finds it with Kevin De Bruyne-like precision.

  • Type: Arcade
  • Sport: Golf
  • Players: 1

Everybody’s Golf has been largely the same game for decades, but with its inaugural PS4 instalment, Clap-Hanz elevated the formula by adding in plenty of customisation options and open world courses. It makes the game feel much more alive than its predecessors, and with buggies to drive and daily competitions to compete in, there’s much more to engage with than ever before. Perhaps most importantly, the underlying click-click-click gameplay remains easy to execute but challenging to master.
