The 30 Best PS4 Games of All-Time

New gaming releases will still continue to be supported on the PlayStation 4 for a couple of years, but it does feel like the console’s era is coming to its end. All in all, it was an incredible run for arguably the best games console of all time.

Of course, for most, a console can only be as good as the games you can play on it. The run that the PS4 had was legendary, so to commemorate its time, we’ve compiled a list of the 30 best PlayStation 4 games of all time.

Some of these games originally released on the PlayStation 3, but our criterion is that there had to have been a remake of some sort that was optimised for the PlayStation 4. Let us know if you agree with the picks and if you think we left anything off.

  • Release date: October 15th 2018
  • Developer: Ubisoft Quebec

The 20 Best Multiplayer Horror Games

People tend to be split down the middle when it comes to horror games. Some people love them and are fuelled by the fear and suspense that comes with playing them and some people can’t understand why anyone would ever put themselves through such an experience.

For the latter group of people, perhaps the solution is having someone by your side, literally or figuratively. For you, we have a treat. Below is a list of the 20 best multiplayer horror games, so that you can share the experience with a friend.

<div class =”code”><iframe width=”950″ height=”315″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/3GB1yXGrSsA” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>”,”hed1. Cry Of Fear”,”buttonTextFree to play”,”buttonUrlhttps://store.steampowered.com/app/223710/Cry_of_Fear/</div>
1. Cry Of Fear

Cry Of Fear started out as a mod for the first Half-Life game, using its standard renderer, before becoming its own game. Interestingly, the game features an entirely separate co-op campaign that works better having already played the single-player campaign, because it sort of relies on the single-player campaign as context. If you’re willing to put the time in, we recommend the game from Swedish indie studio Team Psykskallar.

2. Dead By Daylight

Dead By Daylight is a 1 vs. 4 online multiplayer where the one is a killer who the other four must dodge and escape from. To do this, the other players must turn on generators around the map so that they can use the exit. What’s great about this game is that there are characters that can be used that are licensed from other famous horror franchises. Survivors can take on the roles of characters from Stranger Things, Saw, Left 4 Dead, A Nightmare On Elm Street, and more while Killers have those options as well as Fun World’s Ghost Face and Hellraiser amongst others.

3. Dead Space 3

We’re excited for the Dead Space remake which we’re going to have to wait until 2022 to get news for, but in the meantime, playing the third game in the main series will hold you down. Playing the story with a friend on co-op actually unlocks new details of the story and some additional missions, so it’s well worth a try even if you already tried the story on your own when the game came out in 2013.

4. Deceit

Developed and published Baseline, Deceit is a game whose title sums it up perfectly. Like Dead By Daylight, you and a group of friends are tasked with escaping an area through an exit and must complete some tasks to do so. However, one of you is infected and must secretly consume the blood bags around the map to turn into a monster where you must kill all the players before they exit. There are items along the way that will help you figure out who the infected is too, so use them wisely.

5. Dying Light

Much like many games on this list, Dying Light allows you to play the campaign with some friends if you so wish. What makes this one unique though is that the co-op version of the campaign features co-op challenges, where you and your friends can compete to see who kills the most zombies and race each other to airdrops, adding some fun. In addition to this is the Be The Zombie mode where one player becomes the Night Hunter and is tasked with stopping other players from destroying infected nests.

6. F.3.A.R.

F.3.A.R., or F.E.A.R. 3, was developed by Day 1 Studios and published by Warner Bros. Released in 2011, it was the first game in the series to allow players to experience the campaign with a friend through co-op. Knowing what happens in the first two games is important and does enhance the experience of this game, so it’s worth playing through first. As well as the co-op story mode, there are four multiplayer game modes: Fucking Run!, Contractions, Soul Survivor, and Soul King, allowing players to team up or battle against each other like any good multiplayer should.

7. Friday The 13th: The Game

This kind of survival horror, as evidenced by Dead By Daylight and Deceit already appearing on this list, is very popular right now. In a group, one player is randomly selected to control Jason Vorhees and they must kill as many of the other players, who will control Camp Crystal Lake counselors before the time runs out. You can fight back against Jason with items like bear traps, but Jason also has abilities like being able to teleport anywhere on the map, which ups the tension at all times. There are five maps available that are based on locations from the first five films.

GTFO comes from Swedish independent studio 10 Chambers Collective. The game is still technically in early access, with the time for a full release yet to be decided on. You’re one of four scavengers who must retrieve data from a particular area for a mysterious entity called The Warden. The only problem? The area is pitch blacked and filled with monsters.

A lot of the games on this list are scary, but their concepts are really nothing new. If you want a multiplayer horror that’s a little fresher, look no further than Hide & Shriek. Developed by Funcom, the game pits two players against each other, giving them both a bunch of tasks to complete. However, along the way, you’ll get additional points for scaring the other person, luring them into traps, and performing rituals. To make things better and scarier, you’re both invisible, so you’ll have to keep an eye out for clues about where the other person is and what they could be doing.

Hunt: Showdown is a multiplayer FPS that was released on Windows and Xbox in 2019 and PS4 in 2020. In the Bounty Hunt mode, players can either go it alone or team up to hunt down the Butcher, the Assassin, the Spider, or the Scrapbeak, the game’s four monsters. However, while you do this, you also have to look out for rival bounty hunters, making the game all the more suspenseful. There’s also the battle royale mode, where players must find an energy wellspring whilst fighting off enemies.

Killing Floor 2 can be played alone, but why on earth would you ever want to do that when you can be part of a team of 6? You and a group of five friends can take on the game which takes place a short while after the events of the first game. Despite this, the sequel can be played and enjoyed on its own. You and your group of five friends will team up against hordes of Zeds, which are essentially zombies. If you like the concept, you might also like the Versus Survival version, where there are 6 teams of 2 and all but one team become Zeds, with the aim of killing the human team.

No More Room In Hell was first released on Halloween of 2011 as a Half-Life 2 mod but two years later to the day, it was re-released as a standalone game. The game was created by Max Kazan. Set in a zombie apocalypse, you and your friends take the role of eight survivors who must work together to survive. There are two multiplayer game modes. In Objective, players must exit the area and in Survival, players must kill increasing waves of zombies while supplies get dropped every now and then.

Phasamophobia really took off recently. The name is taken from the word for the fear of ghosts, so no prizes for guessing what you’ll be up against here. Phasmophobia puts you and some friends in the shoes of a paranormal investigator, or a ghost hunter if you will. A great unique selling point that this game has is that it features speech recognition, which means that the sound of equipment and even some keywords that players say in voice chat can be heard by ghosts, who will react accordingly. If that’s not spooky and won’t keep you on your toes, we don’t know what will.

Fans and critics alike were very mixed on Resident Evil 5, but it does offer a good amount of multiplayer content. It was the first game in the series designed for co-op gameplay. Players control Chris and Sheva, the latter of which would be controlled by A.I. if players played on their own. You can either play online with a friend or split-screen, which is an option we see less frequently nowadays. The other multiplayer aspect of the game is the Versus DLC, which features the Slayers and Survivors modes.

This game allows two players to tackle the campaign together with co-op and that’s a big help. Obscure is set at Leafmore High, where some students end up locked in the school overnight after searching for a missing friend. What they discover are some dark secrets about the school, that some students are mutated monsters due to injections and experimentation. If you’re looking for a creepy environment to traverse through and a fun game to scare yourself and a friend, this is a good choice.

Unfortunate Spacemen is one of the smaller games on this list, but don’t knock it until you try it. It was developed by Geoff Keene and it pits you and your teammates against a shapeshifting alien, which is controlled by one person. Some people have referred to this game as a more advanced version of Among Us and we can see why, with its concept and setting. If you liked Among Us but want a scarier twist, this is a must-play.

The 23 Best Multiplayer PC Games

It felt like during the pandemic, more people started both gaming and streaming more than ever. Those who were already streaming saw their available hours triple while they couldn’t leave the house and the period was perfect for growth.

A few different games boomed during the pandemic too, Fall Guys and Among Us to name a couple of them. For a while, multiplayer games were one of the ways we kept in contact.

As PC gaming continues to become more popular, so does the need for a selection of multiplayer games to play. As a result, we’ve made a list of the best multiplayer games that you can play on PC right now. Check them out below.

1. Among Us

Developed and published by Innersloth, Among Us has actually been out since June of 2018 on iOS and Android and November of 2018 on Windows. It only had its surge last year as people were inside. Inspired by Mafia, the concept of the game is that you and the people you’re playing with are the crew on a spaceship. However, one of you is the Imposter and is trying to kill the other members of the crew. Every so often, meetings take place where crew members can discuss who they think the Imposter is and vote for people to be kicked off the ship. The game lost some momentum but was helped along by mods and there’s likely to be a big surge when the sequel gets released.

2. Apex Legends

During the time that Apex Legends launched, it felt like there was a new battle royale coming out every month, but this one stuck with people, hence the 100 million players that the game had in April of this year. The unique selling point of the game is having different characters, called Legends, for people to choose from. They all have different abilities, which makes for a fun aspect of the game before the action even starts. At the time of writing, the game is in its tenth season which kicked off at the top of August. A new Legend, a new gun, a new battle pass, and a ranked version of Arenas were all introduced. It’s still free to play too.

3. Call of Duty: Warzone

Warzone launched right at the top of the pandemic and it couldn’t have happened better for the developers or gamers. While the game is currently facing a lot of criticism about not having a solid anti-cheat system, it’s looking like there might be a change coming with the launch of Call of Duty: Vanguard this November. Also coming before the end of the year is a brand-new map, one that’s set during World War II. We’re not sure what that means for Verdansk, or whether or not Modern Warfare or Cold War guns will still be available, but it’s worth hopping on for the ride regardless. The game will also continue to be free to play.

Released in 2017 and developed and published by Studio MDHR, Cuphead is a game that can be played solo, but is far more fun with a friend. One of you controls the title character Cuphead and the other takes control of their brother, Mugman. The concept of the game is that the brothers must play through different levels and fight bosses to pay their debt to the devil, but that makes the game sound far darker than it actually is. In reality, it’s a great run and gun platformer.

8. Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

Fall Guys, as we mentioned in the article’s intro, is one of the games that boomed in the pandemic, right when it launched and became a free download. The general consensus was that while the game was fun, updates full of new levels with season two came too late and many people had fallen out of love with it as quickly as they fell in love with it. However, the game has definitely seen a rise in popularity since, with the team aspect being catered to. The concept of the game, like a battle royale, is to be the last person standing, all the while going through obstacle courses to try to qualify for the next round.

9. Fortnite

Fortnite isn’t the game that kicked off the battle royale craze in gaming, but it is the one that popularised it. It also gave developers the key to making money with the battle pass and having different seasons in-game. While you might think the game isn’t as popular as when it first came out, the numbers would prove you wrong. In April of last year, 12.3 million concurrent players participated in the Travis Scott event. Eight months later, that record was beaten by 3 million, when 15.3 concurrent players tuned in for the Galactus event. Despite the many things added to the game since its launch in 2017, the concept is still the same and great for playing online with friends or strangers. Oh, and it doesn’t cost a penny to play.

10. Forza Horizon 4

Released in 2018 was Forza Horizon 4, the eleventh installment in the Forza series. For us, this is must-play co-op content. Racing game fans will already know about how much respect Forza gets and we can only agree that they consistently make the best and most realistic driving games around. Horizon 4 on PC is no different.

11. Grand Theft Auto: V

Of course, since this article is about multiplayer games, we’re referring to the online version of the game here. It’s incredible that GTA: V has been around this long, but it’s managed to still be one of the most popular games in the world because of the constant online updates. It doesn’t look like the game is going anywhere anytime soon either because the launch for the PlayStation 5 version of the game is still yet to happen. So despite the game launching in 2013, it’s definitely not too late to jump on and kick things off with some heists and races.

12. It Takes Two

Much like the name suggests, It Takes Two requires two players to work. You can either play with a friend or someone online. Either way, the game is a split-screen co-op game. You and your partner take on the role of two parents who are about to get divorced until your child pretends everything is fine with their dolls. You end up becoming the dolls and must work together to try to reach your child, to get them to turn you back into humans. The game features some great spots where timing and communication are key.

13. Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes

Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes is an incredibly fun co-op game where you and your partner must work with each other to defuse a bomb. One of you is the Defuser, staring at the bomb which has multiple modules. The other is called the Expert and must help the Defuser through each module. Some examples of the modules are morse code and wire cutting (in which the wire you need to cut varies greatly based on random circumstances).

Left 4 Dead 2 includes various game modes, most of which support multiplayer. The Campaign allows you to play with up to three people, although any untaken spots will be filled with the CPU. Survival is basically a gauntlet where you must survive waves of Infected. Then there’s Versus, where you can take control of Infected.

If you’ve only heard of Minecraft and never dived in, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it’s a game where you just gather materials and build things. Although that’s a big aspect of it, there’s so much more that you can do. There’s a Hardcore mode where the aim of the game is survival. There’s Creative mode where you have access to nearly all resources. Multiplayer could see you competing against other players with friends or having build battles. Of course, you could always team up to fight the Ender Dragon too.

16. Monster Hunter World

Developed and published by Capcom, Monster Hunter World was released in 2018. Although the single-player portion of the game is a massive part of it, the game does offer great multiplayer support. Players join servers of up to sixteen people and go on quests, many of which are the same as you can do solo.

Overcooked! 2 puts you and your team in the kitchen of a busy restaurant. You’ll be tasked with gathering, chopping, and cooking ingredients, putting food on plates, serving dishes, and then washing dishes. If all of that sounds like it would be chaotic… that’s because it is. That’s what’s fun about it. Communication is key here.

18. Phasmophobia

Phasmophobia essentially puts you and your friends in the role of ghost hunters, completing contracts. This is a great one for you to play with a group of people over voice chat because of the game’s speech recognition feature, which means that enemies can hear you speak and even react to certain keywords. You also might need some friends to help you get through the horrors that await.

The first game in the Portal series was a big hit and the sequel only took things up a level. Portal 2 was released in 2011 and features not only portals but lasers, tractor beams, and more resources which add many more dynamics to the gameplay. Despite all of the additions, the goal is still the same – solve puzzles however you can.

20. Rocket League

The best way to describe Rocket League is that it is soccer in cars that can jump and damn near fly with enough boost. If that doesn’t make you want to play it, nothing will. The game has always been popular, even since its predecessor was called Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. Ever since Epic Games took over this game, made it free-to-play, and added a battle pass, it has seen more and more players trying it out for the first time. There’s never really a bad time to play this one and it can be played solo, but it’s especially great to team up with a couple of friends against another trio.

21. Sea Of Thieves

Sea Of Thieves has been described as a “shared-world adventure game”, which means that you and the group of people that you’re playing with will often encounter other players in the same environment, which can either mean you form an alliance or you make an enemy. In general, the game sees you using a pirate ship to traverse the vast open world, completing voyages or just roaming.

Siege is a tactical shooter with an emphasis on destructive environments and communication, making it perfect for this list. Different operators have access to different gadgets. The tactical aspect of the game comes in because teams can choose where to spawn and attack the enemy team from, adding an extra layer that most multiplayer FPS games don’t have.

VALORANT, released last year, is a team-based FPS, a hero shooter, specifically. As more game modes get added, the game becomes more and more popular. It’s already been a hit with streamers. There’s Escalation, which is similar to Call of Duty’s Gun Game mode. There’s also Spike Rush, which is basically TDM, but best of seven.
