Who knew there were so many good space games on PlayStation 4? Since there is a pretty good amount of variety, let's rank the best PS4 space games, with the help of your votes. 

If you never played Prey, it's a must-play space game for any PlayStation 4 owner. Although it only had a modest release in 2017, Prey has a really creepy atmosphere that really utilizes the emptiness of space. Other options for PS4 space games include End Space, Alien: Isolation , and Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

Not every space game on this list is a PS4 original - take Elite: Dangerous for example, which came out in 2014. However, all these space games are currently available on the PlayStation Store, regardless of release date. Vote up your favorite space game for PlayStation 4, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide if you're looking for more titles to play.
