Top 10 PS4 PRO Games

10. Uncharted 4: Thief’s End

A fitting end to one of the best and most famous Playstation exclusives there is, Uncharted 4 is the climax of the smart-mouthed Nathan Drake’s story and everything that these developers have learned from the series. The controls are clean, the landscapes are beautiful, and the extra detail brought out by the PS4 Pro shows off just how much beauty these developers put into every single texture of this game. A masterpiece. 

9. Destiny 2

With both 4K upscaling and HDR compatibility, playing Destiny 2 on the PS4 Pro is so visually satisfying that even as an avid fan, you’ll want to start all over again from scratch. The whole game looks gorgeous, from the far off worlds to the in-game menus. If you haven’t played Destiny 2 before, it’s a multiplayer ‘mythic science fiction’ FPS game that’s incredibly fun, and great to play with friends. 

8. Horizon Zero Dawn 

I’ve referred to Horizon: Zero Dawn as probably my best surprise of this generation, and seeing it in the full glory of 4K on the PS4 Pro made that surprise all the sweeter. It’s set in a world where feral robots dominate a planet populated by a primitive society of humans. Everything from costuming to level design to storytelling is informed by this past-meets-future aesthetic. Combat, story, visual beauty - this game has everything.

7. The Last of Us Remastered

Well known as one of the greatest Playstation exclusives ever since its release on the PS3, the beautiful world of Last of Us was almost waiting to be seen on the PS4 Pro. The unforgettable story of Joel and Ellie in a world ravaged by a zombie apocalypse is told through engaging and strategic survival action gameplay; starving out resources enough to always feel endangered in any confrontation. 

6. Red Dead Redemption 2

This long, long-awaited sequel to Red Dead Redemption is one of the most beautiful games on the standard PS4, and this translates incredibly to the capabilities of the PS4 Pro. If you can tear yourself out of Photo Mode long enough, you’ve got a good 70 hours of story gameplay to enjoy without even counting the online mode or the side missions. A shining example of the heights that modern game production has reached.

5. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

One of the best action-RPG games available on the PS4 right now. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey puts you in control of mercenary Alexios or Kassandra. Exploring the gorgeous, varied landscape of Ancient Greece, you set out on a mission to learn the secrets of your heritage. Odyssey is without a doubt the best-looking game in the Assassin’s Creed series yet, with about 40 hours of gameplay.

4. Spider-Man

Who’d have thunk that a superhero tie-in game would be one of the best games of this generation? Spider-man seems to do the impossible - open world yet direct, packed with mechanics yet smooth and playable. This game is even more stunning on the PS4 Pro, and considering how much fun the web-slinging was, now it feels almost like a real tour of New York. If you haven’t played this game yet, you’re truly missing out. 

3. God of War

2018’s God of War has already gone down as one of the best games of all time, and the PS4 Pro does this game amazing justice. In a game where the visual design was already so well crafted, the options of resolution and framerate that are accessible with the PS4 Pro make an already masterfully written story into something completely unmissable. This isn’t God of War as you might have known it in the past. 

2. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

Yet another game that was already shockingly beautiful in its own right, Hellblade blends hack and slash, puzzling and horror gameplay into a fantastic Norse/Celtic inspired story. You play Senua, a warrior who must descend into hell to rescue the soul of her dead lover. The game’s portrayal of Senua’s mental state is unmatched in modern gaming, and we can’t wait for the upcoming sequel. 

1. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Thanks to a resurgence in interest caused by the Netflix TV show, the Witcher series has gained a lot of popularity lately, and it’s completely deserved. Witcher 3 is trickier than it looks - the combat takes time and patience to get used to, which can be challenging if you’re used to a Skyrim-Esque ‘dive in and get slashing’ style of play. The beauty of this truly enormous game world is elevated further by the 4K resolution and HDR compatibility.
