20. Fallout 4

Release Date: 10th Nov 2015 (USA) / 10th Nov 2015 (UK/EU)

Although Fallout 4 shies away from its role-playing roots a little more than we'd like, it still offers up a fantastic jaunt through a post-apocalyptic world. Significantly improved shooting mechanics and a wealth of possible play styles can keep this journey feeling fresh for an extended amount of time - and the new crafting and settlement systems only add to that. Its selection of DLC isn't the best that Bethesda has crafted, but throw everything together and you've got one heck of a ghoul-filled adventure to chew through.

BioWare may have lost its edge over the last few years, but Dragon Age: Inquisition is still one of the best Western RPGs on PS4. Its main draw is its great cast of characters, every single one of them bringing something different to the table. Sprinkle a healthy helping of player choice on top of solid writing, and you've got a fantasy adventure that's begging for your input as the Inquisition seeks to leave its mark on the land of Thedas.

Release Date: 22nd Oct 2019 (USA) / 22nd Oct 2019 (UK/EU)

The third instalment in the Trails of Cold Steel series, Trails of Cold Steel III requires prior knowledge of the first two games to fully enjoy, but that doesn't stop it from being one of the best Japanese RPGs on PS4. Protagonist Rean Schwarzer, now an instructor at a newly constructed military academy, forges fresh bonds with an all-new Class VII as he and his students journey across the Erebonian Empire. Expertly paced, the game juggles quieter character moments with bombastic anime action and a hugely rewarding battle system. The result is an expansive, engrossing JRPG that fans of the genre simply should not miss.

Originally a technical mess on PS3, Skyrim returns to the PlayStation Nation with the remastered and reworked Special Edition on PS4. Featuring mod support and all of the original game's downloadable content, this is the definitive way to experience one of Bethesda's best titles on a Sony system. Incredibly detailed and memorable, the land of Skyrim is still right up there with the greatest open worlds that video games have to offer. Bugs and minor performance issues are the only things holding this re-release back.

Release Date: 31st Aug 2018 (USA) / 31st Aug 2018 (UK/EU)

Refining the tone of its writing and delivering a much better paced story, Divinity: Original Sin II is a huge improvement on an already great role-playing experience. Character creation is meaningfully in-depth, and every action throughout your adventure further defines your hero. As far as player choice goes, Larian's sequel is one of the very best titles on PS4, and the many paths that you can take make it a brilliantly replayable package.
