4 Best Singleplayer Games For PlayStation [2024]

Red Dead Redemption 2

Regardless of which platform you're playing on, Red Dead Redemption 2 is undeniably one of the best and most visually stunning games in recent history. The journey began with Red Dead Redemption, launched in 2010, setting the stage for the much-anticipated sequel. Released for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, it's a title that's been eagerly awaited by fans across the globe.

Set during the tail end of the Wild West era in 1899, Red Dead Redemption 2 weaves the tale of a band of outlaws struggling to elude the encroaching grasp of modern society. The game is a masterpiece of storytelling and visuals, offering breathtaking, picturesque locations to explore and a narrative that's as compelling as they come. All that with one of the best video game soundtracks ever... It's no wonder that millions worldwide would rate this game a perfect 10/10.

God of War

The plot, visuals, combat system, and characters of 2018's God of War have captured countless awards, rejuvenating the franchise while staying true to what makes it uniquely God of War. The narrative is particularly celebrated, earning the title of Game of the Year in 2018, with Red Dead Redemption 2 as a notable rival.

In terms of commercial success, God of War shattered records, becoming the best-selling Sony PlayStation 4 game and the series' top seller by moving over 5 million copies within a month of its release and exceeding 19.5 million by the end of August 2021

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is a cornerstone of the renowned Uncharted video game series, making its debut in 2011. It's celebrated as one of the best entries in the series, arriving during what many consider the franchise's golden years, a period that also saw the release of Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy, ultimately rounding off the saga.

Honestly, even if you hate on the Uncharted series, you'll love Drake's Deception anyway. Even my friend who only plays games made by Mojang, and nothing else (seriously) is in love with this game. It's just exceptional.

The Uncharted series is, without a doubt, among the best single-player experiences in the action-adventure genre. Naughty Dog's relentless commitment to their craft has established a lasting legacy, with every game, including Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, crafted with the cinematic quality of a movie.

The Last of Us

The impact of The Last of Us on the gaming community is immeasurable. Like, if you know how video games are made, you can just imagine how much work the creators have put into this project. 

Released in 2013 (not 2011), this game captivated audiences with its unparalleled narrative and the rich, post-apocalyptic world it presents. The unique concept of the game garnered immense interest, positioning it as one of the best single-player games ever, rivaling titans like Red Dead Redemption and God of War.

The Last of Us was showered with accolades, receiving numerous Game of the Year awards from gaming journalists and at game award ceremonies. Its success story includes remarkable sales, with 1.3 million copies flying off the shelves in just the first week, and a total of 17 million by 2018. These figures don't even account for the remastered and remade versions that were released following the original game's monumental success.
