“What games should I get for my PlayStation 5?” This is the question we’ve been asked the most since Sony’s new generation of gaming arrived last November. People want to see what games are the best showpieces of PlayStation 5’s power, and also which ones take their beloved medium to new heights. Although the PlayStation 5 is still young, it has already amassed a nice library of games, including a few titles that you can’t play anywhere else.
The Game Informer staff has selected 10 games that we consider to be the PlayStation 5’s absolute best. Over time, this article will be updated with the latest releases that we think crack the top 10.
Please note that while the list below contains 10 entries, we aren’t ranking them. If a game has made it this far (and managed to stay here), it’s a must-play, period. As such, we’ll be listing entries in reverse chronological order. Also, with future updates, you’ll find a rundown of previous entries at the bottom of the list. While those titles have gotten bumped over time, they are still all great games in their own right and worth exploring if you’re already caught up on the latest hits.
Here are Game Informer’s picks for the top 10 games on PlayStation 5:
Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut
This samurai epic wowed players on PlayStation 4, and the Director’s Cut leverages the PS5 to make the game look and perform better than ever. Cutting down invading Mongols as samurai Jin Sakai has never felt better, and riding across Tsushima’s scenic flower fields in dynamic 4K is a sight to behold. On top of welcomed additions like 3D audio and full Japanese lip sync, the Director’s Cut also includes the Iki Island story expansion. Set on a small neighboring island plagued by a supernatural threat, this addition almost feels big enough to be a standalone sequel. It’s a great bonus that perfectly complements the primary campaign, giving Ghost of Tsushima fans an excellent excuse to extend their island revenge quest. | Our Review
The wait for From Software’s Elden Ring was made a little less painful thanks to the excellent Demon’s Souls remake. Returning to the roots of this series and seeing it come to life in such beautiful (and disturbing) ways was one of the highlights of PlayStation 5’s launch. The small changes that developer Bluepoint Games made help give this classic a modern touch, and helps it stand tall against the other great Souls games. If you already played this game to death on PS3, the new Fractured Mode changes up the dance just enough to make it feel new again. | Our Review
Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man universe is starting to look a little like Marvel’s Cinematic Universe with a story continuing through the eyes of different characters. Miles Morales’ debut game is shorter than the original game, but is every bit as enthralling. Miles’ coming-of-age story is excellently spun, and while he shares the same Spider-Man name as Peter, he emerges as a different type of hero, using invisibility and electricity to clean up the evildoers who are threatening New York City. Here’s hoping the next game puts both Peter and Miles in the spotlight equally. We can’t wait to see where this Spidey story goes next. | Our Review
