inFAMOUS: Second Son

Well we might not have Prototype 3.....Yet, but what we do have is inFAMOUS: Second son, the game is open world all the way with a few different things to do, it feels and plays the same as a Prototype game but with everything looking so much better, realistic weather effects, fairly large city to play in and that doesn't look like a city out of a shitty horror movie, so when you think of a game like Prototype all in action, then you are wrong.

The game goes as you play, with the city changing and the people in it, depending on what actions you do, over all i finished the game at least 3 times just to check and experiment, its not epic but at least it didn't fail in showing the gamer that everything is based on their actions.

Another thing that i really enjoyed was the fact that your character can absorb other powers, with fairly mid range story that isn't to short but not long enough to bore you either.

It can bore you fast after ending the game, good or evil karma is a little old to be in here.
Pros
Fun
Better then most super hero games.

Killzone: Shadow Fall

Killzone one of the games i hated for boring the living hell out of me after just a few hours of game play that's until Killzone 3 was released when i started getting my interests back for this game, it was much more fun but over all not the best, but yet again the Sony PlayStation 3 is small compared to the new console, with the new console a new Killzone.

Killzone: Shadow Fall features beautiful city environments with plenty of fast paced action for beautiful destruction, the story felt short but yet again maybe it just drew me in to far, for my very first time to play on the PlayStation 4 with Killzone: Shadow Fall as also my very first game to try out the new console, i cant help but say it was really impressive.

The new Killzone didn't just offer that but it also included multiplayer modes where you can join up with your friends, with so many new tactics its a promise you will stay more excited playing online here then on Dust 514.

Tiny Brains

Love playing platform games? i know i do, yet this game might seem childish but its one of the best indie platform games out there, that really combine some good elements, like laughter some puzzles here and there.

This game can be fun for the entire family with the 4 player co-op where you and family or friends can take the role of any four critters or well rodents to have interactive puzzles and of course fighting for escape.

Can get boring if playing alone.
Pros
Can be very fun if playing with at least with one friend and very fun if its the entire team of four players.
The rating above is not rated on the same level like AAA titles its rated on indie games and this one surely beats most of them out there.

The Last Of Us Remastered

There was no way we could not include The Last Of Us, with the amazing story line including great game play, that was supported by really good graphics, trying to make sure that a little girl can survive the horror roaming each corner.

Survival is key in this game, ammo is rare forcing you to use stealth tactics when facing others, though over all ammo can be rare enough for you to use only against strong battles for better survival.

Protecting this girl is everything, as this girl is also the cure, you will find her helping in various ways, opening and reaching places you cant, distract enemies for you to kill or give you enough time to kill them, on this journey you can collect various parts to give temporarily upgrades, and of course permanent upgrades to your self.

The game comes also with online multiplayer for you to enjoy with friends or strangers against other players another also main focus on survival you join up with friends to kill everyone in return you find resources and thus will let you survive a day, the more you survive the higher you rank.

The story alone is already impressive, this is maybe one of Naughty Dogs best game ever, the story is unpredictable and anything can happen thus keeping you glued to finish it, not only that the story try and succeeds in emotional events, that's if you are very emotional.

Survival tactics can be anything from killing some enemies on the level or sneaking past them if you wish to do so, or you can use what ever you have and take your enemies down, you can also construct multiple weapons after finding the blue prints for them and in order for you to do so you need different items and objects, creating one item could leave you not being able to create another, for instance you might be creating a weapons like a Molotov cocktail, this contain alcohol which is also needed to create bandages for health.

So creating one can leave you wishing you made another item one you might have needed, the game play is smooth and the action is fast though when going for stealth. like any stealth game that can take a while, for a game packing so many greatness, the story don't fall short either it can keep you busy up to 48 hours, though as a good player that i am sure you are it can last you some what over 24 hours.

You can also add the expansion pack that will tell the other side of the story though you had to buy it, it is included in The Last of Us remastered.

This is easily one of the best games you could have owned on the PlayStation 3 and even with the new console out, if you haven't played it before or didn't own it at all, then it is highly recommended to get this game for your new console, if you did own it and want to get it then well for fun you can but otherwise you don't have to as nothing is really changed but the graphics.

Maybe when you need to play with her, other then that none.
Pros
Fun game, good story with everything else being good even good when playing multiplayer.
This game is really fun and i wish more survival horror games would be like this, though its not scary so maybe adding that would be a major bonus to the game, we have stealth, mutants, bandits, yet stealth doesn't take over the game like the upcomin

Some other games that didn't make the list

There is many other games that will make this list in the future, but for now we are only focused on the games already released, there is a few that didn't make the list and i will explain why they didn't.

Thief: It wasn't bad, it wasn't good either, stealth is at the max but the story isn't good, the game get boring pretty fast and most areas isn't nearly enough polished, overall it doesn't leave the Thief franchise a shame, thus the game didn't make it, if you are into stealth then try it, other then that don't expect much more.

Lords of the fallen: Not a bad game if you haven't played Dark or Demon's Soul but if you did then this game in particular feels lazy, it feels like they just took all the ideas from Dark and Demon's Soul and it still wasn't fun at all beside that its just easier.

NAtURAL DOCtRINE: The story wasn't bad, the battle system was fading with grey hair and wasn't even good as in good below bad, the game play suck, the graphics look old and everything else with that pretty much suck to.

The Amazing Spiderman 2: Its not a bad game neither is it good, its just well Spiderman, Spiderman, Does whatever a spider can. Spins a web, any size, Catches thieves just like flies. Look out! Here comes the Spiderman. OK i went of topic, wait no i didn't because that's pretty much the game like any other spider man game just some tweaks here and there.

Destiny: One amazing game with next to no flaws its a must get. Then why isn't it on my list? because anyone reading this already knows how fun this game is and i wanted to keep my list different.

There is many games released so far but i only listed the ones that me and my friends really enjoyed, yes there is many other good games i enjoyed, like Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Murder Soul Suspect and many more but this isn't an e-book explaining whats great and whats not just a short list, in case you just got your PlayStation 4 recently and wish to make a purchase.

Instead we want to hear your recommendations and our readers, so if there is a PlayStation 4 game you really enjoyed then leave it in the comments and the reason why you recommend it.
