10 Games to Justify Your PS4 Purchase

The fourth iteration of Sony’s Playstation has been out since November. It’s time to step back, do a little half-year report, and see how the shiny black box has been performing. Sony is dedicated to stocking its console with as many games as possible, and the initiative is evident. The downside, however, is that the PS Store can sometimes feel a little cluttered. There are a ton of indie games, some good, most not so good, and more than a few $60 duds. That’s why we’ve sat down to compile this list of 10 PS4 Must Haves. There’s something for everyone on our chart, so let’s get started.

 

1. InFamous: Second Son

Everyone expected InFamous maker Sucker Punch to deliver with their first PS4 game. As expected, the engrossing InFamous: Second Son has been flooring critics since its release in March. Virtual Seattle is absolutely gorgeous, your superpowers feel like actual superpowers, and the story that ties the game together is surprisingly engaging and emotional. Protagonist Delsin and his reluctant sidekick Fetch have fantastic chemistry-- too bad the city where they wreak havoc can sometimes feel barren. That doesn’t make it any less visually stunning, though-- this one’s the game you use to show off your new PS4.

2. Child of Light

Playstation has always been the home of great Japanese Role-Playing Games-- except the PS4 currently doesn’t have any. Good thing Ubisoft’s here to give us Child of Light, an endearing, hand-drawn tale about a sleeping princess fighting to save a magical kingdom. Utilizing a Final Fantasy-like combat system and told entirely in rhyme, Child of Light is the game to stave off the JRPG hunger until something more tangible comes around. Until then, it’s a delightful little morsel-- short, sweet, and irresistibly charming.

3. Don’t Starve

We already covered Don’t Starve on PC during the Steam Summer sale. We gushed about all that it includes--“beautifully hand-drawn characters, randomly generated worlds, a ton of crafting, hunting, building, farming, cooking, and exploring”-- and we stick by those words, because Don’t Starve is even better with a controller. In fact, we feel it’s one of the best games in the PlayStation store. Don’t Starve is a roguelike, that offers a different challenge with each play session, every single one of them revolving around the same simple goal-- don’t starve.

4. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

Assassin’s Creed is arguably the most popular modern video game franchise, excepting only Call of Duty. You won’t see a CoD on our list but we’d be mad to exclude Black Flag, one of the best games in the series and certainly the best “piracy sim” we’ve ever played. Taking place in the Caribbean during the Golden Age of Piracy, Black Flag is an exhilarating romp full of sailing, singing, swashbuckling, cavorting, plundering, and all of the other pirate verbs you’d expect. And it looks fantastic on PS4’s powerful hardware. Don’t miss out on this one.

5. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

This one’s for the MMO-heads. Although we’re not huge WoW or Rift players here at eProfits, FFXIV got us hooked in the little time we had with it. Supremely beginner-friendly and chock-full of Final Fantasy lore and references, A Realm Reborn is a fantastic massively-multiplayer that’s very, very (guys, very) hard to put down. If you have a spare couple of months, give FFXIV a whirl. Just be prepared for the $15 monthly fee.

6. Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

If by any chance you missed out on Tomb Raider during the last generation, this gorgeous Definitive Edition is a no-brainer. Tomb Raider is a supremely confident reboot that shines new light on familiar heroine Lara Croft and weaves a story that holds its own with past classics in the series. The gameplay is a novelty for the Tomb Raider style, and although it can be repetitive at times (and takes more than a few cues from Uncharted), it remains fun and exciting to the very end.

7. Wolfenstein: The New Order

We have to include at least one shooter, and Call of Duty isn’t it. Neither is Battlefield, Blacklight, or any other generic military shooter available in the PS store. No, we’re going with the surprisingly touching Wolfenstein: The New Order, the latest installment in the series that invented the First Person Shooter genre. Shoot Nazis, crack jokes, and go to space-- we’re not kidding. It’s great, mindless fun, although it can get a bit...emotional, at times. Seriously, Wolfenstein is more than worth a look. Go check it out.

8. Transistor

Another indie curiosity, Transistor is on this list because it’s unlike anything else in the Playstation store. Developed by the guys behind the brilliant Bastion, Transistor is an isometric sci-fi action RPG that plays like a cross between Q-bert and Baldur’s Gate. If that sounds weird, that’s because it is-- Transistor’s art style and combat system are unique, and the original soundtrack accompanying it will be stuck in your head for days. Also, there’s a super cool trick where your sword talks via the controller’s built-in speaker.

9. Rayman Legends

Rayman Legends is plain, no-nonsense, old-school fun. Ubisoft’s limbless wonder shines on the Playstation 4, where you’ll jump, punch, and ride a multitude of beautifully hand-drawn levels. The gameplay’s tight as a drum, the platforming is responsive and fluid, and Rayman’s cast of supporting characters is a ton of fun. Wait for a drop in price, but keep your eye on Rayman-- it’s an absolute blast.

10. Your Call

We’re leaving the final spot open for several games set to come out in the next month or two. By the end of July we’ll have the remastered version of the Last Of Us, arguably PS3’s best game and a contender for Game of the Past Generation, according to many critics and fans.

If you like space and shooting, or shooting in space, hold out a bit longer for Destiny, the space MMO shooter coming in September. It’s made by the same team that created Halo, so it’s bound to be rock-solid-- a sentiment we shared in our preview last month.

If dungeons and dragons are more your thing, hold out for Bioware’s Dragon Age: Inquisition, dropping in early October. No matter if you were burned by Dragon Age II; Bioware’s promising a big overhaul, and the game is looking promising.
