1. Final Fantasy VII Remake – childhood nostalgia for 90’s kids

Most PS4 game adaptations comprise updated graphics to suit the console, but 1997’s Final Fantasy VII Remake went through a complete upgrade. The cult classic that was just released on 2nd March 2020 came with an entirely revamped gameplay and graphics. 

But what made it so highly anticipated was the fact it retained the original characters, story and settings nearly to a T. It made the world of Midgar come alive with gorgeous graphics and even more fleshing out of backstory details.

That said, it’s chock-filled with childhood nostalgia and more engaging battle system that’ll see the famous Cloud Strife hack and slash his way through the story, along with his iconic companions Tifa, Aerith, Barret and more. It’s currently exclusively available on the PS4, but there’ll be a PC version next year on 3rd March 2021.

Probably one of the most highly anticipated series reboots for the PS4, God Of War made one hack of a comeback when it was released in 2018. In case you didn’t already know, it was a top-rated indulgent hack and slash series that thrived throughout PS2, PS3 and PSP eras.

This version, however, departed from its roots in Greek mythology to explore a whole new world of Norse mythology, where main character Kratos gets a daddy-esque makeover. 

It debuted an updated 3rd person action gameplay, along with a deeper storytelling tone and RPG-type character upgrades. What remains though, is that familiar dose of violence and satisfyingly powerful weapons like the Leviathan Axe which can chop and freeze enemies.

You may want to play God Of War III: Remastered ($28.90) to understand Kratos’ backstory before diving into this reboot.

Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V) has conquered nearly every gaming platform there is since its highly acclaimed release in 2013. The game gained notoriety for letting you step in the shoes of the “bad guy” instead of usual hero tropes. Like its predecessors, GTA V’s open world that replicates the Hollywood vibes of Los Angeles is yours for the taking.

What makes this game so vast and addictive is that there seems to be no end to things you can do in the game. You can rob banks, you can steal aeroplanes, go to strip clubs, and even do yoga in the game. The storyline is pretty haphazard and amusing too, so this game is a good stress-reliever if you haven’t already tried it.

You can also create your own character on the online multiplayer mode for PS Plus subscribers, to plan a heist with your real-life buddies.
