When it comes to gaming, the PlayStation 4 has established itself as a powerhouse. The console’s library of games is extensive and varied, from simple puzzle titles like Tetris to action role-playing gems like Elden Ring. Sony’s wedge of a machine is also backward-compatible with its successor, the PS5, which means that players have access to a wide array of titles from all over the console’s seven-year lifespan.
Here are some of the best PS4 games currently available to play on Sony’s last-gen machine:

In the world of virtual reality, few games have been as successful as Doom VFR. The first-person shooter is one of the most immersive and exciting experiences on any platform. Whether you’re diving headfirst into firefights or setting up traps for your enemies, there is always something new to discover in the massive maps and epic combat of this modern classic.
