List Rules Vote up your favorite PS4 games released between 2010 and 2019.

There are hundreds of amazing PS4 games that have been released this decade, but which are the best? The PlayStation 4’s library is easily the most diverse of any of the current next-gen consoles and includes awesome Sony exclusives like Spider-Man, Shadow of the Colossus, and the uber-popular The Last of Us, which was remastered and re-released shortly after the PS4’s launch.

Released in 2013, the PS4 is one of the highest-selling consoles of all time. Games like Yakuza 6 and Street Fighter V (both PlayStation console exclusives, btw) helped redefine the very mechanics of fighting games, while open-world epics like Red Dead Redemption 2 helped showcase the PS4’s stunning graphics in sublime style.

Sure, there are tons of awesome PS4 games that have been released over the last decade, but which ones are your favorite? Vote up your favorite PlayStation 4 games from the last 10 years, and add your own picks if they’re missing from the list.
