20. Watch Dogs Legion (2020)
Ubisoft has sought to create a true revolution for gamers and has achieved it under the name of Watch Dogs Legion.
It is presented as one of the most interesting proposals in which hackers seek the freedom of the city and not fall under the attack of those who want to liberate the world or under the rule of those who believe they have great power.
Thus we have before us a chaotic city of London desperately seeking liberation. To do this, control all the citizens of the place who decided to join our cause.
Why limit yourself to just one character when you can have all Londoners in your cause? All this, in addition, with the possibility of controlling some great streamers invited to participate.
19. Gran Turismo Sport (2017)
The case of Gran Turismo Sport for PS4 is for study; How can a game end up in our top 20 best PS4 games within two years of its release?
Very simple, through hard work, listening to the community, and constantly updating and improving its content, completely free of charge.
GT Sport is the presence of motor racing on consoles, a reference in driving eSports and it does not for that reason give up a large amount of content for a single player (something that it lacked at its launch).
Gran Turismo Sport does not present the most realistic driving, the largest collection of vehicles and circuits on the market;
It also does not allow us to customize our cars to the extreme, which also do not show deformations in the race.
However, it does include the most robust and satisfying online competition system that we have enjoyed in recent years.
If you add to that the almost monthly updates with new circuits, vehicles of all eras, and challenges for a single player, you find yourself with a live driving game, which has a lot ahead of it and is worth every euro you invest in it.
18. Dragon Ball FighterZ (2018)
If you are unconditional of Goku, Vegeta, and company and you even live surrounded by Dragon Ball figures at home, you are in luck in 2018;
After many years of exploiting Akira Toriyama's license with a 3D fighting game with important role-playing and adventure components, Bandai Namco has finally decided to launch the Dragon Ball fighting game we were waiting for in 2018.
Dragon Ball FighterZ for PS4 is run by the prestigious Arc System Works studio (Blaz Blue, Guilty Gear) and represents a before and after in terms of Dragon Ball games; tremendously faithful to anime, it is a true visual spectacle, accessible to all players, but complex to master.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is called to mark a before and after in the saga; a game that you have to buy yes or yes if you have ever liked Dragon Ball; from the moment of its launch, one of the great PS4 games.

16. Shadow of the Colossus Remake (2018)
Shadow of the Colossus, released in 2005 on PS2 (at the end of Sony's console life) became an instant classic for PlayStation gamers and the consecration of its creator, Fumito Ueda.
Although technically PS2 could barely handle it, this piece of adventure was later recovered with a much more dignified HD remastering for PS3.
However, it is on PS4 when Shadow of the Colossus has received its best version, which for many is the best remake of this generation of consoles; a golden opportunity to play it if you did not do it in its day and a good reason to let you fall in love with this masterpiece again.

Sucker Punch was determined to create an amazing world for gamers, a place where we could not only marvel at its action but also its incredible environments.
And for this, despite all the ideas that they shuffled and came to be on the table, they finally bet on a title that would take us to Feudal Japan.
Honor and blood are two of the proposals that we will meet with the players and is capable of showing us the most magical and spiritual side of Japan.
