The Best PS5 Games So Far

From Demon’s Souls to Hitman 3, here are the games you should pick up when you get a PS5.


Though it's far too early to have a definitive list of the best PS5 games, there are a bunch of great games that we think you should check out first on your new console. From launch titles that showed off the power and innovation of the new Sony console to beloved favorites from last generation reborn with technical improvements, the PS5 is building an impressive library out of the gate. With the price of some games increasing this generation, making an informed decision about your game purchases is all the more important to your wallet. To help you enjoy the best of what the PS5 has to offer right now, we’ve rounded up the best PS5 games so far. We’ll continue to update this list as more games are released for PS5.

As you’ll notice, not every game on this list was developed specifically for PS5. Only Demon’s Souls and Astro’s Playroom are PS5 exclusives, and a bunch of the titles we chose originally appeared on PS4. For the purposes of this list, we’ve included native PS5 games as well as top-notch PS4 games that received noticeable overhauls via next-gen upgrades.
