Released in 2015 as a sequel to the game Batman Arkham Origins, the game soon roped its way to being one of the greatest games to be released on the PS4 with players swearing by it as the best. Of course, taking into criticism there are certain major flaws in the game which is imminent as there is no game which can be deemed perfect when exercised over a large population, but the 12 hours of gameplay has mesmerised fans all over the world. The game has added new moves and enemies from its previous installations that boost the playability to a much higher degree and not to mention that it has a fully functional Batmobile. Arkham's open world has been expanded greatly with better detailing and adding a touch of supernaturalism into its midst, this was controversial as many players did not accept the supernatural element but it still ranks as one of the best action games to make way to the platform and possibly the most the popular Batman up to date.

2. Sekiro: Shadows Die twice

This could be considered as an oriental version of the Dark souls series as it goes along the same path of grinding up your character and levels progressively. The game is heavily based on timing and deflections with the player having to make split-second reactive decisions if they wish to scathe out of battles alive. The game is set on the Sengoku period in Japan in contrast to Dark Souls which holds a more a Medieval style with its European centred world. The game is a semi-open world with brutal boss battles that will keep your adrenaline pumping throughout. Sekiro has loads of secrets, moves and combinations that seem impossible to work around with at first but with some dedication, you will soon be hooked into its world of samurais and precision sword fighting.

No line up would be completed without the addition of a triple-A-rated uncharted title amongst its midst.
