Updated October 15, 2020 1.4k votes 230 voters 8.8k views26 items

When it comes to good sci-fi games for PlayStation 4, there's plenty of variety. For that reason, we're ranking the best PS4 sci-fi games, with the help of your votes. 

One of the more popular PlayStation 4 science fiction games is Detroit: Become Human. Released in early 2018, the newest installment from developer Quantic Dream allows you to decide the fate of the characters you play in this next generation choose your own adventure game. If you never played Horizon Zero Dawn, it's a must-play sci-fi game for any PS4 owner. Other options include No Man's Sky, Warframe, and the very underrated Prey from Bethesda.

A few of the sci-fi games on this list are PlayStation 4 exclusives - take Infamous: Second Son for example, which came out in 2014, but others are more general. All these sci-fi games are currently available on the PlayStation Store, regardless of release date. Vote up your favorite sci-fi game for PS4, whether they're open-world epics, RPG series, or even action-adventure titles, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide if you're looking for more titles to play.
