The 25 PlayStation 4 games that every collection needs

HORIZON: ZERO DAWN

Guerilla may have been known for the Killzone shooters before, but now they'll be forever regarded as the brilliant team behind Horizon: Zero Dawn. This vast, open-world adventure – and PS4 exclusive – feels a bit like a mash-up of influences, ranging from Far Cry to Tomb Raider and The Witcher 3, yet the end result is absolutely marvelous.

You take control of Aloy, a tribal hunter in a future ruled by metal beasts, and you'll use her enviable skills to explore the stunning wasteland and battle those mechanical monsters. It's action-packed, nicely diverse in terms of objectives, and even has a captivating tale along the way. It's early still, but we might not play a better PS4 game all year.

UNCHARTED 4: A THIEF'S END

Nathan Drake and his explosive exploits have become synonymous with PlayStation gaming over the last several years, and the long-awaited Uncharted 4: A Thief's End sends the adventurer out on a staggeringly high note.

As ever, the latest Uncharted dazzles with incredibly tense set pieces and stunning locations, but Drake's proper PS4 debut takes everything up a notch and adds in palpable emotion as the hero's quest finally draws to a close. And if you somehow haven't played any of this amazing series, The Nathan Drake Collection can get you caught up right on your PS4.

OVERWATCH

The latest breakout multiplayer sensation is undoubtedly Overwatch – no surprise that it's another gem from the Warcraft wizards at Blizzard, but it is surprising that the team was able to deliver the quintessential first-person online shooter experience with its first shot.

Overwatch is colourful and original, with a diverse cast of heroes that ensures that every player can find a specialty. However, success in combat requires not only working together with allies, but also choosing complementary heroes to build a rock-solid squad. We'll be playing this for years; it's truly a gift that will keep on giving.
