Top PS4 Games of All Time

'Of all time' is a rather grand statement, as the concept of that amount of time is hard to get a grip on. But at least when we’re talking about the PlayStation 4, time only stretches back to the end of 2013 when the console launched. What is time anyway? Are we even real? Is our universe just be a projection of another cosmos? When you consider things like this, looking at a list of the top PlayStation 4 games of all time seems insignificant. Why are you even reading this when the world has so much more to offer, if indeed it is physical and not rendered inside a massive server farm, our bodies stored in slimy liquid-filled chambers and overseen by an army of robots.

But that’s enough of that. If you really have nothing better to do with your day and life than browse a list of the best PS4 games, here is that list. Will any be timeless?

    Dishonored 2: Death of the Outsider

    I might not have enjoyed it quite as perfectly as Dishonored 2, but Death of the Outsider is a fittingly melancholy way to wrap up a story arc I've loved.
