The PlayStation 4’s success was largely due to its stellar game library, which featured some of the best titles of the past generation. Seven years later, the PlayStation 5 is looking to repeat that success, though it’s going to have to overcome some initial bumps in the road.
Sony’s new console had a library advantage right off the bat, thanks to the PS Plus Collection, which immediately gave owners access to some of the PlayStation 4’s biggest hits on their next-gen consoles. As for new games, the console launched with some excellent first-party support, thanks to games like Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Standouts like Returnal quickly followed, but now Sony is bumping up against some major delays. Big games like God of War Ragnarok and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 were delayed, thinning out the console’s initial lineup. But thankfully, there’s no shortage of incredible experiences to be had on PS5.
With that in mind, we’ve put together a handy running list of the best games currently available on PlayStation 5 so you’ll always know what to play next.
