[Top 10] PS4 Games with the Best Graphics

Like living in a real life painting

The 8th generation of consoles has officially come to an end. With Sony announcing that the shortage of PS5 stocks is now a non-factor and with more of the newest Sony games console easily purchased now.

It’s time to look back at the PS4’s thousand game library and which one’s look the most stunning to this day. These are the top 10 PS4 games with the best graphics.

10. GTA V - 2013 (PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S)

Franklin decided to let off some steam after Lamar roasted him about his Yee-Yee ass haircut

Being released a full decade ago back in 2013, you’d think that GTA V can't compete anymore with the heavy hitters of today’s gaming choices but you’d be wrong.

Rockstar’s flagship game series has held its own over the ten years since its release, still having one of the biggest player bases to date and racking billions of dollars in revenue since release.

If you’ve been living under a rock for ten years, GTA V is about the story of three criminals intertwined one way or another. Michael, a retired bank robber, Franklin, Michael’s protege, and Trevor, who is simply insane.

They go on missions from the government and corrupt billionaires to do their dirty work while they work to get out of their horrible work arrangements. 

The online feature of GTA V is an entirely different beast with it being the main source of money by Rockstar by giving it update after update and support even until now.

Customization options, story particularly tailored to the online feature, and tons of vehicles and weapons entirely exclusive to GTA online. 

This addictive gameplay formula coupled with great graphics that still hold up until now where wanton mayhem is just at the tip of your fingers, GTA V will surely be a staple in gamer’s minds until GTA 6 releases.

No seriously when will GTA 6 be released. It's been 10 years, Rockstar.

9. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End - 2016 (PS4, PS4, PC)

Boys will be boys

Naughty Dog’s farewell to the luckiest man alive and the craftiest treasure hunter in the world is back for more fame, glory, and money.

Uncharted 4 released back in 2016 on the PS4 and boy has it aged like fine wine. Since then having ports on the PS5 and even on the PC, the graphical fidelity of this game has only since become stronger as time goes by. 

On the native PS4 it still holds up graphically with no signs of it being a 7 year old game.

Levels like Scotland, Libertalia, and most importantly Madagascar are still one of the most beautiful gaming levels in gaming history with the famous chase scene happening in Madagascar.

Gameplay and puzzle solving are still great with mechanics such as the grapple hook a welcome addition to the traversal and the melee and cover shooting mechanics a joy to play.

Uncharted 4 will hold up for years to come and will forever be remembered as a reminder as to how powerful the PS4 can be in term of storytelling and especially graphic

8. Days Gone - 2019 (PS4, PC)

The reason why Deacon doesn’t choose to run is because his balls of steel weigh him down

A criminally underrated game that didn't get its flowers during its first few months is back again on one of our lists to show our appreciation to this absolutely stunning and beautiful game.

Days Gone was released in 2019 developed by Bend Studious and published by Sony. It’s about Deacon St. John, a biker roving around a destroyed Oregon to find his long lost wife all the while battling hordes of infected individuals called freakers.

Gameplay for this game is one of a kind with its main selling point being the horde battles you do with the freakers.

Traversal in this game is mostly by motorcycle where you have to maintain it by refueling it and repairing it for any damages. 

Graphics wise, the world in Days Gone is one of the prettiest and realistic looking in any video game.

Trees sway in the wind, the way water flows and reacts when your bike goes through a puddle, and the sunlight bouncing off of the mountains and buildings are to die for in this game.

Despite being ravaged by a virus, the Oregon depicted in this game is beautiful and really cannot be stated enough how perfectly crafted everything is

7. Spider-Man: Miles Morales - 2020 (PS4, PS5, PC)

Yes you can swing around New York while you carry around a cat in a Spider-Man costume

Released as a flagship title for the PS5 when it was released but also optimized for the PS4 is Insomniac’s second outing into the world of web-slingers. 

Miles Morales is the spin-off title to Insomniac’s Spider-Man game released in 2018. Now featuring Miles Morales as the main character where he’s tasked to protect New York in Peter Parker’s absence against an unknown criminal organization known as the Underground.

Gameplay is similar in terms of its previous title with web slinging, dodge counters, and gadget use,all very much a core part of the game. You get to fight criminals on your daily patrols while also taking down members of the underground one at a time. 

The graphics in this game are immaculate. Web slinging while the sun sets or the snow falls or in the bright lights of the big apple are a sight to behold.

Arguably the most beautifully rendered New York City in video games is realized in this game where no detail from the buildings and historical landmarks are compromised even with added ones like the Avengers and Oscorp towers. 

The detail in the character models and costumes are superb also, especially the one suit inspired by the Into the Spiderverse movie where its cartoonish and stuttery movement animations like in the movie are captured perfectly in the game.

These are but only a few examples as to how good this game holds up to the PS5 version of the game and still show that the PS4 is still more than capable to deliver quality to the highest level.

6. Evil West - 2022 (PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S)

Exterminators had to deal with a lot of stuff back in the old west

One of the more recent entries in this list is the supernatural western shoot-em-up, Evil West. Released in 2022 developed by Flying Hog and published by Focus entertainment.

Evil West follows the story of a vampire hunter called Jesse Rentier tasked with keeping the American frontier safe from supernatural monstrosities.

Placing players first in a beautifully rendered cutscene and first controlling Jesse facing the sunset, it's hard to imagine that after seeing the first few minutes of the game that you’re still playing a PS4 game. 

Textures are crisp and clean in 4k HDR and character models are well made with no compromise for it despite being released on the PS4.

Character models are detailed with every gore and viscera made from Jesse’s attacks realistically rendered.

Gameplay for the game is smooth as well with the gunplay and particle effects of the splatter, electricity, and explosions satisfying to watch as well.

5. Horizon Forbidden West - 2022 (PS4, PS5)

If this is the forbidden west then I’d like to see what the not forbidden west looks like

The follow up to Guerilla Games flagship title returns to one of our lists here at Gamer’s Decide and for good reason.

We again follow the footsteps of Aloy who searches for the backup of the GAIA AI system to save the planet's rapidly declining biosphere.

Gameplay is similar with the original one but with vastly improved systems for the shooting mechanics and for the melee too. New machines have been added with the likes of the mighty Tremortusk and Fanghorn being added. 

What really makes this game a must have for PS4 owners is it's absolutely stunning visuals.

Locations such as post-apocalyptic San Francisco and other famous landmarks have been captured beautifully with vegetation growing and the machines grazing and doing their normal routines in game.

Flight and underwater exploration have been added where it adds a new layer of traversal and top notch visuals for the player to enjoy.

4. The Last of Us Part II - 2020 (PS4)

Gamer’s Decide does not condone cruelty against doggos

Making another return to one of our lists is Naughty Dog’s magnum opus, The Last of Us Part 2.

Released in 2020 and winning that year's Game of the Year and deservedly so.

Following up on 2013’s game by Naughty Dog of the same name, we follow Ellie and a new character named Abby as they both go on deeply personal missions that have far reaching effects on both their lives and journeys. 

Gameplay is one of the smoothest around on the PS4. You can either be stealthy in your approach or go out guns blazing against the cordyceps infected or the raiders and bandits that litter around the play area. 

Graphics wise, I truly believe that The Last of Us Part II is a game that opened the doors to the next generation but PS4 users were lucky enough to experience it on the last years of the console.

Environments in the game are atmospheric and bleak that adds a sense of realism to players at how depressing everything is. I mean you’re living in a world where cannibalistic mushroom people hide inevery corner. 

The gunplay and gore in this game are also one of the most brutal you can ever see in a game with giblets of your enemies literally scattered on the walls and roofs of the play area.

Character models in this game are also cause for celebration as the disgusting detail of the infected like the Clickers, Bloaters, and the new enemies like the absolutely revolting Shambler and the Rat King are encounters you have to experience yourself.

Truly a game that spoils players in every way possible except in the sport of golf.

3. Red Dead Redemption 2 - 2018 (PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia)

Mr. Morgan and Mrs. Adler preparing for some dastardly deeds

RDR 2 is the absolute apex of what happens when a developer truly loves and cares for their game and its fans.

It is Rockstar Games' magnum opus as of the time of writing with game details and gameplay secrets that are still being unearthed today.

Set in 1899, the story follows Arthur Morgan, acting as the infamous Dutch van der Linde's right-hand man, as he and the rest of the van der Linde gang struggle to survive by either doing honest jobs or engaging in good old-fashioned train or bank robberies.

The majority of the game's navigation is done on horseback, and shooting is swift and precise with the fastest draws being the deadliest.

Hand-to-hand fighting is more akin to a fight club style of battle with the use of blocks and punches and apparent damage throughout these melee phases.

The size and beauty of the entire playable area are its most decisive factors. This game has everything from bustling cities to remote tiny settlements, snowy mountains, parched deserts, lush plains, dense woods, and murky marshes. 

The replayability factor in this game is top notch; you might walk around robbing people or you might sit on a cliff's edge and take in the game's breathtaking nature.

2. Ghost of Tsushima - 2020 (PS4, PS5)

About to be turned into real life fruit ninja in about a second

A video game rarely has an impression on you that lasts a lifetime.

Significant gaming moments include Aerith's passing in Final Fantasy 7, Samus Aran's gender being revealed in Metroid, and Slippy Toad's on-going irritation in Starfox. 

But hardly rarely does a game's title card entrance give you the chills and make you feel something you'll never forget.

After a 7-year sabbatical, Sucker Punch Studios returned with a bang with Ghost of Tsushima. In order to save his home island of Tsushima and the neighboring Iki Island.

Jin Sakai, a samurai fighter, is compelled to adopt strategies that violate the samurai code.

In addition to being entertaining and addictive, the gameplay involves using parries in addition to bombs, arrows, and kunais. The splendor of the settings in this game is its true draw.

You get the impression that you are inside a painting. A piece of art transformed into a game.

One of the numerous vistas in this game that will give you a sense of calm and duty and put you in the shoes of Jin himself is riding through golden autumn forests, visiting pampas grass fields, or looking out over the entirety of Tsushima from a high peak.

You feel as though the island is your own home because of how beautiful it is and how many people live there, and you will do whatever it takes to protect it.

1. God of War: Ragnarok - 2022 (PS4, PS5)

Not even weird dinosaur monsters are safe from Kratos

In this 2022 exhibition of fantastic graphics and even greater story-driven gameplay, the dynamic father and son duo is back.

From God of War (2018), Kratos and Atreus are back as they fight to escape the Fimbulwinter as Ragnarok, the end of the world, draws nearer.

God of War Ragnarok, which was developed as the follow-up to the 2018 Game of the Year of the same series, takes us around the many Norse mythological worlds as Kratos and Atreus embark on quests either individually or collectively while they wait for and attempt to thwart the impending arrival of Ragnarok.

The game's dog sled and flying boat have been introduced as traversal options, while the gameplay is otherwise comparable to the 2018 version with a few minor adjustments. 

The game's truly amazing graphics, though, are what really seal the deal. The game looks absolutely great, even on the PS4.

The environment is meticulously detailed, light reflections and shadows accurately reflect the light source, and adversary and character designs are as lifelike as possible.
