What are the best PS Plus games? PS Plus, also known as PlayStation Plus, is Sony’s flagship subscription service for PS5 and PS4, providing online multiplayer functionality, cloud saves, and PS Store discounts. PS Plus also includes access to hundreds of games included at no extra cost, spanning three distinct subscription tiers: PS Plus Essential, PS Plus Extra, and PS Plus Premium. You can learn more about all three options and their various benefits in our PS Plus Memberships: All Three Tiers Explained guide.

Depending upon which PS Plus membership tier you’re subscribed to, you’ll be able to download and play an overwhelming number of games. Therefore, you may be wondering what are the best PS Plus games? That’s why we’ve created this list, which sorts and curates the best PS Plus games currently available, based on your user ratings. This page will dynamically update, depending upon the availability of games within the PS Plus tiers, and your opinions.

For this page, we’re combining all three tiers of PS Plus, including the PS Plus Collection (which is exclusive to PS5 users). That means there are some caveats to keep in mind: PS3 games, for example, are only available for PS Plus Premium members via cloud streaming. Some games are also only part of PS Plus in specific regions, and in instances where that applies they’ll be designated a regional flag next to their subscription tier.

Remember, if you’re looking for a full list of All PS Plus Games, then you’ll find that through the link. Also, if you feel your favourite is missing from this page, then remember that you can rate any game using the search box below. Your ratings will influence the rankings below, but of course a game will need to be available in an existing PS Plus subscription tier in order to be eligible.

Please note that a game will also need at least 50 ratings before it will appear on this list, so if one of your favourites is missing for whatever reason, that will be why. It’s just to keep things consistent and fair across the board.

Publisher: Rockstar / Developer: Rockstar San Diego

Release Date: 26th Oct 2010 (USA) / 26th Oct 2010 (UK/EU)
Available On: PS+ Premium

Almost as beloved as the original Red Dead Redemption is this zombie-infested spin-off, Undead Nightmare. Taking place in an alternate timeline, it sees John Marston roaming the open world in search of a cure for his infected wife and child. As it so happens, hundreds of zombies stand in his way, turning the western into a spooky survival title. It’s a fully fleshed out experience that stands apart from the base game, even offering its own multiplayer modes. A cracking alternative take on Rockstar’s PS3 classic.

Available On: PS+ Premium

Bethesda handed RPG veterans Obsidian Entertainment the Fallout licence after Todd Howard and the gang were done with Fallout 3, and Fallout New Vegas is the result. It’s somehow even more technically questionable than its predecessor, but New Vegas makes up for the bugs with a much heavier emphasis on role-playing. The open world title boasts loads of branching questlines, forcing you to bet on distinctly unique factions, all of whom are warring over the Mojave wasteland. At its best, New Vegas is a truly engrossing RPG.

21. Fallout 3 (PS3)

Available On: PS+ Premium

Fallout 3 is a buggy but often brilliantly entertaining, post-apocalyptic RPG. Bethesda’s first crack at the series transformed the property into a juggernaut franchise, peppered with player choice and intriguing questlines. In Fallout 3, you play as a young man or woman fresh from Vault 101 — thrown out into the Capital Wasteland in search of your runaway father. The gunplay’s beyond janky (thank god for V.A.T.S!) and the dialogue can feel a bit stunted, but Bethesda’s engaging open world design and focus on character progression makes Fallout 3 an incredibly addictive adventure.
