PlayStation Now games are available for PCs worldwide starting today. Sony is offering PC owners their huge library of over 400 PlayStation Games available, until now, exclusively to PlayStation owners. Although there are no emulators involved and Sony is basically streaming games over to your computer via the almighty internet, those with a solid internet connection can enjoy the hundreds of games for just $20 per month.
And since we’re talking here about amazing titles, titles that have not been released on PCs so far, there are some real treats for gamers out there. And you can even add to the experience with the Dualshock 4 adapter – but that’s not a must. A must is playing some of the amazing games released for the various PlayStation models in the past and to make things a lot easier for you, we’ve selected the best PlayStation Now games for you to play right now on your PC.
We’re talking about PlayStation-exclusive titles, of course, because that’s what it is all about: enjoying games that you weren’t able to enjoy so far if you didn’t own a PlayStation. And we have quite a few amazing picks – make sure to check them out below and give them a try as soon as possible!
Shadow of the Colossus
One of the best known and most appreciated PlayStation 2 games, this one is a must play. From the opening sequences all the way to the end, this is an amazing game, one that involves battling massive bosses, one that will make you care about your characters and maybe even make you cry. An absolute must play game!
The Last of Us
One of the best rated PlayStation games ever and one of the more recent games available on PlayStation Now, The Last of Us is the cherry on top of this service. If you were to play this game alone and it would still worth paying the $20 for one month! It’s basically an extremely well done Resident Evil game (and we didn’t get a good RE game for a long while!) in a different universe and with a storyline that you’ll absolutely love. By all means, play this game!
God of War series
OK, so this is not a game, it’s a series and you have the chance to play it from its not-so-humble beginnings to its latest installments. Start with the original God of War to meet the almighty Kratos, then work your way up to God of War 2 and 3, then enjoy God of War: Ascension, God of War: Chains of Olympus and God of War: Ghosts of Sparta. That’s a series that not many PC owners hoped to play on a PC and now you have this unique chance! Take it!
Another classic PS2 game, another title that has a lot more in common with Shadow of the Colossus than it appears to. A beautiful puzzle platformer with minimal dialogue but amazing atmosphere, this multi GOTY award winner is another must play game on PlayStation Now.
Considered by many one of the best shooters available exclusively on PlayStation, this sci-fi shooter packs quite a punch and will keep you busy for hours. Amazing graphics, amazing gameplay – the perfect recipe for success!
Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time
Although I am not the biggest fan of this series, I have to admit that everybody else loves it and considers A Crack in Time the best ever made. Zany platformer action with extremely colorful characters, this is a must play if you enjoy this type of games.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
Insane fighting action, great co-op play, great graphics. If you haven’t played a game in the series, then you must play this one. If you did but skipped this one for various reasons (maybe because you don’t own a PlayStation?), then you must play this one. Simple as that.
Another Playstation Exclusive series that you have to play is available for just $20 per month. On PS Now you can play the original Nathan Drake adventure in Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune (the first in the series), as well as Uncharted 2 and 3 for a perfectly rounded up experience.
Siren: Blood Curse
If you’re a fan of horror games, then this one is the game you have to play. When you’re home alone, the light are turned off and the wind makes a creaking noise outside. And even if you don’t have this perfect setting for getting the top scares of your life, you will still get scared and enjoy one of the best horror games out there.
These would be our recommendations: a good line-up of games to start your PlayStation Now adventure on PC. However, have in mind that there are over 400 games available on the service right now, with more new games added regularly, so there’s definitely a huge library that you will have at your disposal for just $20 per month.
Which are the titles that you’re looking forward to playing now that you have this option?
