Are you starting 2022 with a new PlayStation 5? If yes is the answer, you are set for a lot of fun in the new year as the game console is one of the best you can get today! Also, congrats to you because the gaming console continues to be hard to buy, thanks to the persistent chip shortage. However, the console is nothing without great games! This is why we have put this list of the best games you can play on the PlayStation 5!
Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition
The Spider Man franchise has been with us for decades in films, merchandise, costumes, toys, etc. However, as a game, the famous character continues to delight millions of players as it swings from point to point, fighting the bad guys in New York.
One of the most rewarding games on the PlayStation 5 is the Miles Morales Ultimate Edition of the Spider-Man games. While you get an expansion that allows you to play Miles Morales, you still have access to a remastered version of 2017 Marvel’s Spider-Man.
The controls and much of the gameplay are similar to the Batman: Arkham game, so familiarity is a bonus for the Miles Morales Ultimate Edition. This game costs $50 if you take advantage of discount sales, but the point is that you are more or less getting two games in one.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
Do you love Pixar movies? If yes, you will like this new iteration of Insomniac Games’ Ratchet & Clank. The characters and environment are as highly detailed as expected from the best animation movies.
The game itself is engaging, with opportunities to pull stunts you can’t even try in real life, all the while armed with the latest and craziest weaponry.
Ratchet & Clank is family-friendly, making it an excellent investment for the, well, family. Even watching someone else play it is satisfying. You can grab it for as low as $50 while sales last.
This first-party game is a remake of the classic level Demon’s Souls. However, you will get new visuals and an updated soundtrack. Other visible improvements include fast game loading times and smooth performance.
The game is still as challenging as ever, and you have to plan all your moves carefully. If you are a junkie for these kinds of games, you won’t be able to put down Demon’s Souls. Building your own character strength is also a ton of fun as you can customize a lot.
Demon’s Soul is available for $50.
Coming from the same publisher of Dishonored and Prey, you are permitted to have high expectations of Deathloop. The first-person shooter by Arkane places you in the position to break out of a frustrating time loop on your new PlayStation 5. You will play as Colt, who needs to progress in the game to remember details about himself.
Arkane managed to blend difficulty and gameplay in the best proportions, and you will be hooked on this game in no time.
Deathloop costs $40 but can even go lower due to deals. Watch out for such offers to make your PlayStation 5 infinitely more enjoyable.
Full disclosure; Returnal is hard to play. However, playing this shooting game in the third person is very fulfilling. If you have ever wondered what it feels like to dodge hails of bullets, this game lets you do that on repeat.
The first few stages could be frustrating, but progressing considerably reduces the difficulty because you will get perks and better weaponry.
You will also enjoy the visuals and sounds, which are among the best of any modern game. However, you must be able to respond rapidly, or you are toast despite playing on a brand new PlayStation 5!
