20 best PlayStation 4 games for kickass action and heartfelt adventures

We know what you’re thinking. It’s just Tetris, right? Wrong. We can’t stop thinking about Tetris Effect. It’s ostensibly a musical riff on the iconic block-breaking classic, developed by Ground and Lumines genius, Tetsuya Mizuguchi. The game takes its name from the psychological phenomenon which occurs when you devote enough time to one particular activity that it begins to pattern your thoughts. 30 pounds. amazon.co.uk

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V‘s parodic recreation of California still holds up today. It’s a game that never asks you to care, which absolutely works in its favor. It’s a big, detailed playground for destruction that tells a three-character crime caper, while also letting you live out your crime boss dreams in GTA: Online. For less than twenty notes, this is a steal, and with Rockstar continuing to support the online mode with free updates, there’s almost always something new to see as you cruise around sunny LA £17.99. At Amazon. amazon.co.uk


Of all the games on this list, Bloodborne is the one that’s the most rewarding. A gothic extravaganza that prioritizes skill over storytelling, forcing you to truly engage with its world in order to discover its most hidden secrets. Do that – submit to Bloodborne – and it’s a game that gets under your skin. You’ll want to pore over every think-piece and watch every explanatory video, just to better understand its world. £11.99. At Amazon. amazon.co.uk

Honorable mentions: Uncharted 4, Dishonored 2, Overwatch, Spiderman, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, Horizon Zero Dawn, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus
