Best PS4 Games of 2022

It picks up inspiration from all-time successes Bloodborne and Dark Souls’ dark-fantasy aesthetics and formula by Deck13. Surge 2 has some slight differences in mechanics from Surge 1 apart from the setting.

Each hardware improvement on PS4 means that GTA 5 runs in ways and at speeds, it never did on PS3. If nothing else, the mystery of Mount Chilliad will no doubt be a potent temptation.

Its hook is the massive community, fantastic game humour, brilliant setting and simple mechanics.
