After its launch in 2020, PlayStation appears to be having a brilliant 2021. New Horizon other God of War The games are scheduled for release at the end of the year and in the coming months. . But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot to play for.
The biggest games that were released alongside the console were Demon’s Souls and Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Outside of that, there are some great cross-platform games that have gotten the PS5 treatment. However, please note that this list does not include updated PS4 games, such as Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition.
Hitman 3 is the first big game of 2021 and it’s good too. Ending the rebooted Hitman trilogy, which began with the 2016 self-titled title, Hitman 3 received a 9/10 from CNET’s sister site, GameSpot thanks to its excellent level design, improved story and replayability. That last attribute is the key. Hitman may be about assassinations, but it’s more of a puzzle game than an action game, and you’ll have to play each level over and over again to see all the creative ways Agent 47 can get rid of the bad guys.
The game is available on both PS4 and PS5, among other consoles, but the PS5 version has 4K, 60 frames per second, and improved haptic feedback thanks to the DualSense controller.
One of the most noticeable trends of the last 10 years has been the increase in Super hard play. Much of that is attributed to the success of FromSoftware’s Dark Souls, which arrived on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2011. But Dark Souls itself was a spiritual successor to Demon’s Souls, a highly regarded FromSoftware game that launched in 2009. .
And now Demon’s Souls has a second life on PlayStation 5, as it is arguably the best game on the platform. Have a score of 92 on Metacritic, Y got a 9 out of 10 from GameSpot. He takes credit for faithfully remaking the 2009 classic, but enhancing it with better movement and modernizing it with graphics that show what the PS5 can do.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales
On a little cat in a Spider-Man mask appear and attack your enemies., an expansion of Spider-Man from 2017, you can carry a backpack in which
I don’t think I need to expand further.
Since Demon’s Souls and Miles Morales, the PS5 has seen a shortage of exclusives. Returnal’s release in late April changed that. It’s a big budget, beauty game, and it’s a great demonstration of what the PlayStation 5 can do graphically to say the least. It is roguelite, a genre where you will restart from the beginning every time you die, you will work with new skills. And you want a lot. It’s a tough game thatBut you are sure to find a cult following.
Astro Game Room
Speaking without charity, Astro’s Playroom is a glorified tech demo. Speaking charitably, it is a glorious technical demonstration.
Designed to show what the PlayStation 5 Dual Sense controller can do, Astro’s Playroom comes free with PlayStation 5. “Free tech demo” doesn’t scream “must-play,” but Astro’s Playroom has received high praise for being full of witty tributes to previous PlayStation games and, more importantly, being fun to play.
Astro’s Playroom does not try to hide the fact that it is an excuse to show you what a gamepad can do. But conjure up a world that you will want to see and explore, according to Mike Epstein of GameSpot.
The Pathless, a third-person shooter that is concerned almost primarily with fluidity and movement, is a joy to play every second that you have the controller in hand.
It’s available on other platforms, including the iPad, but I’d say it’s best played on a current-gen console like the PS5, where the visuals and frame rate reflect the neatness of the game’s design.

Sackboy: a great adventure
LittleBigPlanet’s mascot is here to provide a more substantial platformer than the cute but short Astro’s Playroom. Sackboy: a great adventure ditch the level creation that LittleBigPlanet focused on and instead focus entirely on 3D platforming. But keep the colorful images and charm.
No, it’s not a Mario-level platformer, but it’s accessible fun for anyone with a PlayStation 5.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
It’s far from exclusive to PlayStation 5, but Assassin’s Creed Valhalla it is still arguably the most important game on the console. I mean it literally: this is a great game. The main quest will take you over 50 hours to complete and there are plenty of other good Viking things to see on the side. The PS5 version makes forays into England smoother, with gameplay at 4K, 60 frames per second.
