The best PS4 games of 2020.
The year 2020 comes to an end, but it’s still time to remember the games that made their name on PS4. Sony’s console brought many exclusive titles throughout the year, such as The Last Of Us 2 and Ghost of Tsushima, as well as versions of games established in cross-platforms.
Check out the list of top PlayStation 4 titles in 2020:
1 – Nioh 2
The game, which draws from a soulslike source, won a second, and exclusive, PS4 version earlier this year. In it, players control Hide, a customizable half human, half yokai character who needs to unify Japan in the Sengoku period.
Nioh 2 brought an evolved gameplay compared to the first title. But it maintains a good part of the elements that consecrated it, such as the high level of difficulty, and the iconic battles against the famous “level bosses”. Too bad your plot is too generic and uninvolved.

2 – Eternal Doom
One of the most famous FPS franchises in history gained a new chapter in 2020. In Doom Eternal, players return to control of the protagonist Doom Slayer, needing to eliminate the demonic forces that have invaded our world.
Unlike most FPS nowadays, Doom Eternal bets on the old formula and brings a frantic shooter where your mission is basically one: eliminate everything that moves in front of you.

3 – Resident Evil 3 Remake
Building on the success of Resident Evil 2 Remake, Capcom brought the third title in the franchise in a more current perspective, without losing its essence. In it, you take control of Jill Valentine, who seeks to understand what happened in a destroyed Raccon City, while surviving the pursuit of the creature called Nemesis.
The game was highly praised for the way it was built, but some players criticized the way it plays out. It follows practically every step of the original title (which was already considered the shortest in the franchise), with the exception of many puzzles, which make the game even shorter.

4 – Final Fantasy VII Remake
One of the most anticipated games of the last few years, Final Fantasy 7 Remake finally made it to PS4 in 2020. As the name implies, the game is a remake of the 1997 RPG classic, with a new gameplay that changes the battle system so much, as for your free navigation on the map.
Interestingly, even long, the game only brings the introductory part of the adventure. However, its director has already confirmed that the continuation of the remake is in development.
