The PlayStation 5 is here, but it’s almost impossible to find in stock anywhere. The good news is some of the best PS5 games are actually just PS4 titles. The PS4 isn’t going anywhere yet. This Sony console is home to a rather vast library of excellent big-budget and indie video games. We don’t have the words or pages to list them all, but we’ve highlighted a few of the absolute best PS4 games available today, and every single one is compatible with the PS5. Every player has their preferences, but these titles are worth some time no matter what kind of gamer you are.
Updated May 2021: We’ve added new titles, including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Control, Last of Us Part 2, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and Spider-Man Miles Morales.
