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.

30. Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare (PS3)
Publisher: Rockstar / Developer: Rockstar San Diego
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.
29. Death Stranding (PS4)
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment / Developer: Kojima Productions
Death Stranding is Hideo Kojima’s first game after going independent, and it’s a suitably crazy debut. You play Sam Porter Bridges, a delivery man in an age where the world has been devastated by the titular event. Charged with reconnecting a fractured United States, it’s down to you to traipse across the land, delivering important supplies and hooking up remote outposts to a shared network. It’s unlike anything else, with your biggest obstacles being the uneven terrain and fragile goods on your back. Online connectivity populates the game with useful equipment and structures created by other players, so you’re all in it together. Death Stranding is an acquired taste, but its bonkers story and tranquil gameplay help it stand out.
28. Shadow of the Colossus (PS4)
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment / Developer: Bluepoint Games
What can be said about Shadow of the Colossus that hasn’t been said already? It’s truly among PlayStation’s best games, and this PS4 remake presents it in the best possible light. Set in a barren open world, devoid of almost all life, you must venture out and slay numerous colossi that are peacefully roaming the land. Each of these boss-style encounters is a puzzle in itself, and they each feel like epic confrontations thanks to incredible animation and music. Remade on PS4, it looks and runs better than ever, too. A bona fide classic.
27. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (PS4)
Publisher: Capcom / Developer: Capcom
Following a string of disappointing releases, Capcom got its beloved horror franchise back on track with Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Set inside the dreadful house of the Baker family, Ethan Winters (that’s you) must fight for his life and escape his captors. It marks a return to true survival horror, and ups the tension with a first-person perspective. If you want to make things even more claustrophobic, you can strap on a PSVR headset and play the entire thing in VR. Resi 7 drags the series back to its roots and sets the mood for what would come next.
26. BioShock: The Collection (PS4)
Publisher: 2K Games / Developer: Irrational Games
BioShock: The Collection is just what it says on the tin: all three of the fan favourite games in one place, and remastered for play on PS4. The first is a true modern classic, introducing us to the unsettling undersea city of Rapture, while the sequels build on what it achieves in some very interesting ways. Each game places you in a fascinating setting that’s in the midst of falling apart, and a mix of guns and powers make them a unique set of shooters. These are bold, unusual games that stand out thanks to their incredible worlds and subversive narratives.
25. Monster Hunter: World (PS4)
Publisher: Capcom / Developer: Capcom
The Monster Hunter series has always been popular, but it never properly resonated with a Western audience. That is, until Monster Hunter: World arrived. This action RPG puts the focus on defeating larger-than-life creatures, creating better gear from the loot they drop, and repeating this forever, and it’s an incredibly compelling formula. World streamlines the process a little, lowering the barrier to entry just enough that it was an enormous hit worldwide. With a wide selection of weapons to master, a near endless gameplay loop, and super fun co-op excursions, this is an incredibly addictive, consistently satisfying game.
24. Resistance 3 (PS3)
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment / Developer: Insomniac Games
The Resistance series is synonymous with PS3, and fans all have their favourite instalment. However, most would agree that Resistance 3 closes the main trilogy with a bang. After a pair of bombastic adventures, the third game offers a more personal, smaller scale story. It still has you fighting back the alien race known as the Chimera, but it’s through the lens of small-town America, with an almost survival horror slant rather than all-out action. All-in-all a great shooter, this is a rough-cut diamond in Sony’s first-party library.
23. Resident Evil: Director’s Cut (PS1)
Publisher: Capcom / Developer: Capcom
One of the most iconic PS1 games of all time, Resident Evil: Director’s Cut may feel clunky and cumbersome by modern standards, but the Spencer Mansion’s pre-rendered backdrops remain as atmospheric and engaging as ever. With some truly genius puzzles and heart-pounding encounters, the only slight against this stone-cold classic is that it was surpassed by its 2002 Nintendo GameCube remake, which has since been ported to various other platforms, including the PS4.
22. Fallout: New Vegas (PS3)
Publisher: Bethesda Softworks / Developer: Obsidian Entertainment
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)
Publisher: Bethesda Softworks / Developer: Bethesda Game Studios
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.
