We're halfway through 2020, and what an eventful six months it's been. Our world has been a chaotic place lately, and even the gaming industry has felt the effects of this unprecedented time. However, the show must go on, and despite it all, 2020 delivered some cracking PlayStation 4 games. Here are our 10 best PS4 games of 2020 so far.
10. Resident Evil 3 (PS4)
Hot on the heels of the brilliant Resident Evil 2 came this remake of the third entry. Although it didn't quite live up to its predecessor, Resi 3 is still a very entertaining thrill ride. With the terrifying Nemesis on your tail, this more action-packed horror title is a zombie-infested game that beautifully reimagines the PS1 release.
9. Granblue Fantasy Versus (PS4)
We all know Arc System Works can make a fighting game, and Granblue Fantasy Versus is yet another example of the developer's fantastic talents. Based on the Japanese mega-property of the same name, it's a relatively traditional fighter, but gorgeous visuals and a large roster of diverse characters enhance the experience. While it's had its fair share of balancing issues on a competitive level, there's still so much fun to be had here, and it even comes with its own surprisingly long RPG mode. And to top it all off, the game is very easy to get into, offering accessible mechanics without sacrificing the eventual depth that more serious gamers seek.
8. Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition (PS4)
Kentucky Route Zero was a long time coming, but it finally came to PS4, and it was worth the wait. The episodic adventure game stands out because it constantly reinvents itself while telling an engaging story. It presents you with some bizarre scenes but it all somehow holds together beautifully. The result is one of PS4's weirdest and most gripping adventures.
7. Zombie Army 4: Dead War (PS4)
Let's face it, Zombie Army 4: Dead War isn't going to win any Game of the Year gongs, but damn it knows how to have fun. Tied up by a silly story that involves Nazi zombies, the title unfolds across a number of chapters, each of which sports its own unique setting. You and up to three friends blast your way through these levels with all sorts of 1940s weaponry, blasting undead heads like there's no tomorrow. Zombie Army 4 is so easy to pick up, and as soon as you start unleashing that kill combo, you'll be hooked.
6. Nioh 2 (PS4)
There are sequels like The Last of Us 2, which subvert expectations in interesting ways – and then there are sequels like Nioh 2, which don't. This nail-biting action-RPG may be similar to its samurai-themed predecessor, but the original was a pleasant surprise on the PS4, and its successor is still plenty entertaining. Thrilling combat with imaginative environments for a fantastic journey through feudal Japan.
