Over the years, Sony’s PS Now service has built up a huge library of PS4, PS3, and PS2 games. A lot of people don’t pay attention to PS Now because Xbox Game Pass is more popular. It’s a good option for people who want to play some of the best PlayStation games from the last two decades.
The subscription service has Sony games, games from other companies, and a lot of indie games. It doesn’t matter if you like action, horror, adventure, or RPGs. PS Now has them all. Due to the size of the service’s library, it can be hard to figure out where to start. However, there are a few books that stand out from the rest. Here are the best PS Now games.
1. Outer Wilds
You can play Outer Wilds right now on PlayStation Now. It was part of the April 2022 line-up. The sun is going to explode in 22 minutes, and it’s going to take the solar system with it. The protagonist is stuck in a time loop that resets when everything is wiped out, so he has a chance. It’s also worth noting that the player character is an astronaut who can quickly travel to a wide range of planets to learn more about the sun’s destructive future.
An open-world game called Outer Wilds is full of puzzles, which are also part of the game’s overall mystery that needs to be pieced together through careful research and discovery, like in the game itself. Outside of the main story, the game comes with a lot of secondary content and smaller stories that are just waiting to be told, too.
2. Shadow Warrior 3
Adding Shadow Warrior 3 to the library of games on PlayStation Now is a first for the service. It is almost never that a new game comes out on Sony’s subscription service. The first-person shooter Flying Wild Hog might be an indication that Sony wants to compete with Xbox Game Pass even more in the future.
Like Doom and its sequel, Shadow Warrior 3 is a fun game where you have to shoot your way through a corridor or an arena. In terms of structure and gameplay, this entry is more like the first Shadow Warrior reboot than its looter-shooter successor. However, it’s also a lot shorter than its successor. Shadow Warrior 3 is a good game for people who want to have fun for a while.
3. Mortal Kombat 11
It was added to PS. If you want to play Mortal Kombat 11 in January 2022, you can get it from NetherRealm. It’s just like Mortal Kombat 9 and 10. Unlike its immediate predecessor, MK11 has a single-player campaign that fans of the series have come to expect. It has a lot of over-the-top action and silly jokes. It’s a lot of fun and should do a good job of teaching players about the game’s mechanics. Newcomers should spend a few hours in MK11’s tutorial mode. You should read it. It’s one of the best in the genre.
Mortal Kombat lives and dies by its multiplayer scene, and the 2019 game is still very much alive even after so many years. Co-op and online play are both supported by the multiplayer. There are a lot of customization options for those who want to give their chosen fighter a little extra personality.
Celeste, an indie game that was added to PS Now’s November 2021 lineup, is a side-scrolling game with a steep learning curve and an interesting story. Play as Madeline as you climb the Celeste mountain, taking on seemingly impossible challenges and dangerous foes along the way.
Celeste’s campaign takes the character and the people who play with her on an emotional journey of self-discovery. As a game, it makes sure that this journey isn’t easy. Among the best music and gameplay of the late 2010s, this game has a fantastic story.
5. God Of War
A few games that everyone who has a PlayStation Now account should play. It’s possible that God of War, which came out in 2018, should be at the top of that list. Rebooting the series, Kratos lives in a different part of the world, far from his Greecian roots that gamers are used to seeing him in.
In the game, Kratos moved to Midgard, which gave the game’s developers a chance to shine a light on some other gods. They used the deep Scandinavian folklore about the Norse Gods and their mythology. As a PS Now game, God of War has RPG elements, a great story line and stunning graphics. It also has some of the best combat mechanics.
Bloodborne was a break from Dark Souls, even though both games have a lot in common. It was made by the same company that made Dark Souls. Bloodborne is a game that starts off as a Gothic horror game. It has a Victorian-style setting, werewolves, silver bullets, and people who turn into animals. If you’re not used to horror games like Lovecraft’s, you might feel a little sick after this one. Because Bloodborne is a game made by FromSoftware, it can be very hard at times. Bloodborne, on the other hand, is also very rewarding when you beat that one boss (Orphan of Kos for me) or learn how to parry. In this case, Jordan Palmer says that.
Technically, the name of this game is Guacamelee! One you play it, you’ll see why the exclamation point is so important. Guacamelee is a Metroidvania game that is very colorful and loud. It has an art style that is based on Mexican folk art. Juan Aguacate is a simple agave farmer who turns into a magical masked luchador. You play him. Her old friend Lupita is in the hands of the devil, and he wants to save her. There is a lot of originality in both Guacamelee’s fights and exploration. For example, you turn into a chicken to get through small spaces. Because the game is so big, you’ll also see both light and dark worlds. For Marshall Honorof, this means:
8. Horizon Zero Dawn
It’s a shame if you haven’t played Horizon Zero Dawn yet, because it’s one of the best games on the PS4. In this huge, open-world game, you’ll find everything you need: sumptuous graphics that still look good today; engaging combat and well-balanced enemies; a fascinating game world; believable characters; and a wide range of gameplay that keeps things interesting. This is what really makes Horizon Zero Dawn stand out from the rest: It has a very good story, though. As she grows up, Aloy travels through a post-apocalyptic world filled with huge robotic creatures. Keep it with you for a long time after you’re done playing. He said: — Marc McLaren
While some people think that swinging through Manhattan in Marvel’s Spider-Man is the best way to get around the city, let’s not forget about grinding on subway rails with electrical powers. In the game Infamous, players play as Cole McGrath. After a huge explosion in Empire City, McGrath gets electrical superpowers that make him very powerful. A lot of hard puzzles, underground labyrinths, and dangerous places can be found in the open world that the series has built. He is: Imad Khan
