After spending countless hours shooting at aliens, you may want a change of pace. Flower is the perfect game in this case as there aren’t any killing. In fact, it is about as relaxed of an experience as you can get from gaming. Your goal is to simply glide flower petals around to restore the surrounding scenery. The PlayStation 4 version is the best due to 1080p and 60 FPS. You may also want to keep a lookout on Journey, which is releasing on the next-gen system later this year, since it is being developed by the same team.
4. TowerFall: Ascension
The PlayStation 4 has its fair share of blockbuster releases like Destiny. At the same time, the machine also has a big selection of unique indie games. One of the best so far is TowerFall: Ascension. The simple but addicting videogame is mainly a multiplayer arena battle experience where you try to kill your friends by using bows and arrows. Don’t be surprised if you end up losing some long hours playing with your friends.
3. inFamous: Second Son
Destiny has more maneuverability when compare to other first-person shooting games. However, it pales in comparison to what you can do with inFamous: Second Son. Using powers like smoke and neon, you can quickly scale a building and take out the opposition. Being on the PlayStation 4 fixed the technical issues found in the previous games, making Second Son one of the best (if not the most impressive) looking game on the next-gen system.
2. Diablo 3 Ultimate Evil Edition
One of the main sticking points in Destiny is the loot you received from defeating enemies. Of course, no other game capture that type of satisfaction towards earning more powerful equipment than Diablo 3 Ultimate Evil Edition. The PlayStation 4 version is 1080p and 60 FPS while adding a new nemesis feature where an enemy can grow more powerful as he invades and kills you and your friends. There’s also online and couch co-op if you and your friends want to transition from Destiny into another game that is based around teamwork.
1. The Last of Us Remastered
If you are expecting something more from Destiny from a story standpoint, then you may have been disappointed in Bungie’s efforts. Fortunately, Naughty Dog has that element, and a lot more, covered with The Last of Us Remastered. The best game on the PlayStation 3 is also the best on the PlayStation 4. Aside from the stellar plot, you can also expect a visceral gameplay experience as you try to survive in a desolated world. Even if you already played the PlayStation 3 version, the next-gen port is worth re-experienced again with 1080p and 60 FPS visuals.
