Need recommendations for PlayStation 4 hack and slash games? Let's rank the best PS4 hack and slash games, with the help of your votes.

One of the newest PlayStation 4 games about slicing and dicing is God of War. Released in early 2018, the newest installment in the God of War series goes back to its hack and slash roots in a game that actually has a pretty great story. If you've never played NieR: Automata, it's a must-play hack and slash game for any PS4 owner. Other options include Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, Let It Die, and Furi.

Not every hack and slash game on this list is a PS4 original - take Bastion for example, which came out in 2011. However, all these hack and slash games are currently available on the PlayStation Store, regardless of release date. Vote up your favorite hack and slash game for PlayStation 4, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide if you're looking for more titles to play.
