After around seven years, 2020 marked the end of the PlayStation 4 era. At the same time, the next generation was heralded with the newly released PlayStation 5. For both systems, some real blasts appeared, which we will introduce to you below. You can only get these ten top titles from Sony!

10: Dreams 


Dreams gives creative minds a tool to help them realize their own game dreams. The developers Media Molecule provide you with a true creative monster full of complex functions and possibilities with which you can let your creative spirit run free. If your own creativity is not enough, you can also admire the creations of other players. If you are looking for an introduction to your first game project, the editor offers more than enough sandpit features to make the most of your creativity.

9: Persona 5 Royal

Persona 5 Royal

Persona 5 Royal makes one of the currently best J-RPGs even better. Like the basic game from 2017, the royal version is not stingy with lovable characters, an interesting world and exciting dramaturgy. Inevitably, the role-play will pull you under its spell at some point, even if the start may seem bumpy to some. If you still get involved, with the expanded version of Persona 5 you will get a regally grandiose, extensive and stylistically unique mandatory title for Japan RPG fans.

8: Nioh 2

Nioh 2

Nioh 2 takes the Souls qualities of its predecessor with it and shines with excellent playability, crisp challenges and a rewarding loot spiral. The already complex combat system is a bit more sophisticated and offers an almost inexhaustible number of ways to defend yourself against your opponent. When it comes to boss fights, Nioh 2 also gains compared to its predecessor. Even if Nioh 2 can't hold a candle to Sekiro or Dark Souls, the congenial variation of From Software's game formula sweetens the time up to Elden Ring for every genre fan.

7: The Pathless

The Pathless

With The Pathless, the makers of Abzu have succeeded in creating a deeply atmospheric adventure game that touches, inspires and tells a mythical story. You slip into the role of a masterful archer who tries to free an enchanted island from a dark curse. You will be accompanied on your journey by your faithful eagle. Together you will explore the misty ruins, deep forests and picturesque plains of the island. The Pathless always remains unobtrusive, artistically demanding and sometimes epic - which makes it a real pearl among the PlayStation 5 launch titles.

6: Ghost of Tsushima 

Ghost of Tsushima

With Ghost of Tsushima, the PlayStation 4 chapter was closed: The samurai epic was the last major exclusive title for the aged console. In 1274 the Mongols attacked the island of Tsushima off Japan. Samurai Jin Sakai is one of the last surviving warriors to fight for the liberation of his homeland. The open-world action adventure impresses with its visual design: graphically somewhere between reality and art, you ride towards the sunset, swim through picturesque lakes and whirl up thousands upon thousands of cherry blossoms in battle. Nevertheless, Ghost of Tsushima never drifts completely into kitsch or cliché, but skilfully bows to Japanese culture.

5: Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Final Fantasy 7 Remake

The long wait finally came to an end in March of this year. The first episode of the remodeled Final Fantasy VII not only enchanted connoisseurs of the original. By moving away from classic round-robin combat to real-time action, younger players were also able to experience the magic that the role-playing game still exudes. The audiovisual presentation was particularly impressive: Despite major changes, Square Enix was able to carry over the classic charm almost completely into 2020.

4: Astro's Playroom

Astro's Playroom

A nice little demo to prove the merits of the PlayStation 5 and DualSense controller - that's Astro's Playroom in theory. But whoever played the title preinstalled on the PS5 will talk about it differently. Because it's actually a clever technology demo and a pleasant mini-adventure at the same time. With the cuddly robot you can complete jump passages, switch puzzles and other skills. On the way you will experience many nice anecdotes and cross-references to the PlayStation history, but also the guest appearances of well-known video game characters make for smiles. It is this mixture of humor, playability and cute looks that makes Astro's Playroom so entertaining.

3: Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Spider-Man: Miles Morales

A new Spider-Man? Yes, great! Wait, is it just an extension ?! Or not?!? When it was announced, it wasn't really clear what was going to be behind Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Meanwhile, we can reassure you: It's a new adventure, and with another Spidey in the lead role. When Peter Parker has to take a break from swinging his net, the young Miles follows in his big footsteps. And of course the first practical test is not long in coming. Although Spider-Man: Miles Morales is almost as playful as its predecessor, it builds up its own identity. In terms of content, you get the full package of action, drama and humor that make Spider-Man: Miles Morales much more than a copy - namely one of the best action adventures of the year!

2: Demon's Souls Remake

Demon's Souls Remake

Demon's Souls Remake is undoubtedly one of the most influential games of the last decade. With a new look, the classic is just as powerful, timeless and great as the original from 2009. To this day, From Software's Souls veteran defines his own genre with precise gameplay and a dark, fascinating world. All its strengths and tradition-conscious details make the remake of Demon's Souls the most important launch and exclusive title for the Playstation 5. This game should not be missed by any Sony Konsolero.

1: The Last of Us: Part II 

The Last of Us: Part II

Love, hate, confusion, violence, grief, fear. All of that and more pops through our minds when we think of The Last of Us: Part II. Naughty Dog confronted us with such beautiful, uncomfortable and brutal moments that one is extremely emotionally carried away. The visual presentation, which is unparalleled on the PS4, makes a huge contribution to this. Joy and sorrow can be seen in all nuances on the faces. Underlaid with an enormously dense and perfectly coordinated soundscape, The Last of Us: Part II takes you on a trip that you have never experienced in this form.
