Top 5 Best PS5 Games Of 2022

The PlayStation 5 has been available for two years, and many games have been released since then. But, what are the best PS5 games available right now?

I’ve reviewed a lot of PS5 games over the last two years, so we decided to pool our accumulated intelligence to provide you with the best options.

5 ) Returnal

Returnal is something of a trailblazer. Roguelikes have long been a popular genre on the indie scene, with games like Spelunky 2, Dead Cells, Enter the Gungeon, and The Binding of Isaac leading the way, but nothing quite like Returnal has ever been seen in the AAA space. Returnal combines Housemarque’s expertise in intense, bullet hell, arcadey shoot-em-ups with deep roguelike mechanics and a dense, eerie atmosphere to create unforgettable experiences. Returnal’s one flaw at launch was the inability to pause long runs and save your progress, but with that fixed, it’s difficult to find flaws in this incredibly bold and ambitious take on the AAA roguelike.

4) Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart ranks high on our list of the best PS5 games for two reasons. It’s not only the best Ratchet and Clank adventure yet, with our heroic duo taking us on an unforgettable journey with some new friends, but it’s also a powerful demonstration of what the PS5 is capable of. Doctor Nefarious has struck again, stealing the Dimensionator and ripping dimensions apart. Ratchet and Clank are separated and flung across the universe through time and space, and they enlist the assistance of another Lombax, Rivet, to help stitch the universe back together

3) Spider-Man: Miles Morales

The next generation of Spider-Man is packed with comic book adventure, heart and soul, and plenty of that oh-so-satisfying swinging through New York. The action shifts from Peter Parker to Miles Morales, with the focus shifting to his home turf of Harlem and a whole new set of teen turned superhero problems. This time, Miles has some new abilities, such as bioelectric venom, and the haptic feedback of the DualSense makes them even more satisfying to use on criminals .Spider-Man: Miles Morales manages the tricky task of delivering a story that Venom punches you right in the heart, but is also a place that you want to escape to after a long day in the real world. Spider-Man: Miles Morales pulls it off so well, thanks to Miles’ charm and that sweet swinging, that you’ll wish Peter Parker a happy retirement without even a tear in your eye.

2) Elden Ring

Elden Ring is one of those games where once you’re in, you’re in for good. This is From Software’s best game since the original Dark Souls, bringing its unique gameplay to an open world for the first time. It refines, evolves, and tweaks the formula to ensure that suffering in its very specific masochistic style has never been more enjoyable.

1) Horizon Forbidden West

Horizon Forbidden West expands on Horizon Zero Dawn’s already impressive foundations to tell a deeper, more thrilling story that amplifies the series’ explosive fights against complex robotic foes and blockbuster action sequences, while also adding lively settlements and thoughtful, intriguing sidequests to the world. The Forbidden West is absolutely stunning on PS5 — from the incredibly detailed faces and costumes of the people you meet to the sweeping and frequently stunning landscapes. For those interested in learning more, there’s a genuine sense of exploration as well as a plethora of completely exciting worldbuilding to discover. Horizon Forbidden West is an absolute blast and fantastic showcase for the power of the PS5. It's a triumphant combination of enthralling combat, top-tier creature and character design, and a captivating open world.
