The Last of Us

This has been one of the greatest games in recent history.

Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption got us familiar with many of the characters but Red Dead Redemption 2 took us to the beginning of the journey and how each and everyone came to be. What motivated them to take those actions, this titles takes you deep within the storyline of Arthur Morgan as you see the world through his eyes and his posse of the Van Der Linde gang. Rockstar Games produced one of the most heart touching games in recent years and Red Dead Redemption 2 will always be a fan favorite.

God of War

This God of War title has been a retelling of Kratos’ story, the once Greek demigod finds himself in Norse mythology. God of War takes Kratos’s story as a literal God of War and humanizes him as a father figure looking after his child and they embark on an epic adventure, this worked wonders for the title and God of War became an instant classic.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Uncharted 4 was a perfect finale for Drake’s adventure, it perfectly tied in all of the three games that came before it and gave it a fitting end. Drake has been going on for quite some time now and this seemed like the biggest and baddest adventure he was supposed to be a part of. Ultimately Drake finds what he’s looking for but the game does not end without hinting towards what the future might bring in for us. Uncharted 4 is one of the best PS4 Single Player game you must explore.

Shadow of the Colossus

Easily one of the best story-driven games in this list, Shadow of Colossus is a remarkable game which features a roller coaster of a ride with how the story takes you on a journey. The setting of the game is perfect which blends both the fantasy and real world together. Wander’s story is beautifully crafted and you should definitely give this a go.

The Last Guardian

The setting and the aesthetic of this game will charm you and the story of The Last Guardian seems like a perfect element that holds all the pieces together. Trico as a companion is wonderful to have around, this game speaks volumes about relationships and gets you thinking for a long time.

Horizon: Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn charmed the audiences when it was first released, the story of Aloy and how she grew up secluded from her village to one day being the best of her people. The search for her answers and a curious personality which drives the game forward. This is a wonderful title which takes a look at a primitive future in a way no one has done before.

What Remains of Edith Finch

The variety of storytelling and the narrative is what sets apart What Remains of Edith Finch from most game, this game’s environment seems to have a personality of its own and how well it is crafted is a marvel. The story will take you places and you will come back for more with this title.

Detroit: Become Human

Who would’ve thought that machines could have more humanity than humans, and this is what this game achieves with a well narrative story which will have you go through all your emotions, the pacing of the story and the character developments are amazing. This game revolutionized this genre and how decision making affects the storyline.

Marvel’s Spider-Man

This PlayStation exclusive has been regarded as one of the best superhero games in recent history, after the disappointing Spider-Man games of before this game truly managed to get Peter Parker’s and Spider-Man’s essence into the game and show how diverse and different these both personalities are, while still being the same person.


Celeste is probably the one game on this list which is more than what meets the eye, you wouldn’t expect much from a side scroller game but the narrative in this game is one of the best as it takes you on Madeline’s quest in which she has to battle her emotions and conquer not only the great tasks up ahead but her inner demons as well.

NieR: Automata

NieR: Automata takes you on a similar setting as to where Detroit: Become Human takes you but if you take the artificial intelligence similarities away then this becomes a completely different approach to the genre and you will be in a ride through the twists and turns this game throws at you. NieR: Automata is an experience which you should not skip.


The recently released Yakuza spinoff has a beautiful story embedded within a detective thriller game. You will not see the twists coming and some of the aspects of the game will hit you hard but you will gladly go for the ride as this game through the ups and downs of being a detective in Japan.


Inside is different for every person, the story is a work of art and speaks subjectively to everyone who plays it. The game will often make you wonder about your choices puzzling you and haunting at the same time. It is a short game but is worth the time you would invest.
