The PS5 is gradually consolidating its status as the most popular console in France, mainly thanks to its high-quality games. Here are our top 5 unmissable console titles.
[Mis à jour le 3 janvier 2023 à 09h29] The PS5 made a big return to stock for the 2022 holidays, and remains the most sought-after console by the French. The reasons for its popularity are many, and also based on the quality of its exclusive games. After a year 2022 marked by big releases for the PS5, we decided to offer you our top 5 clearly essential games on the Sony console. You’ll find exclusives from Japanese game consoles, essential games for all consoles, and certain episodes of major licenses from the video game world.
A PS5 exclusive since its release in early 2021, Returnal is a one-of-a-kind roguelike, which transports you to a mysterious and hostile alien world. You play as Selene, a space explorer who ends up on the planet Atropos after getting stuck in a time loop. The game features tense and complex gameplay, and comes as a third-person shooter with rogue-like elements. Accessible to both young and old, it offers tough challenges and replayability that will appeal to those who love difficulty, as well as an engaging storyline that makes it an entertaining adventure.
4. The Last Of Us Part I
To stick with single-player games, why not bring one of the greatest masterpieces in video game history to life on the PS5? The Last of Us Part I is a remake of the homonymous game released on the Playstation 3 in 2013. Offering innovative graphics and a touching story, this first episode is the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in the adventures of Ellie and Joël, companions of misfortune in the middle of a total health apocalypse. Updated in the summer of 2022, this title is definitely a must if you haven’t dared to start what can almost be called an interactive movie. However, beware, The Last of Us Part I is undoubtedly a drama, including scenes of psychological and physical violence that may be beyond the reach of the youngest.
3. FIFA 23
It’s hard to make top games of the year without a next-gen FIFA. Although the formula of EA Sports studios is seen and analyzed, the 2023 edition of FIFA has a special flavor. In fact, on a technical level, the innovations of Hypermotion 2 make it a great football simulation, recreating complex game situations down to the millimeter. For football fans, this title is a must, knowing that the men’s and women’s World Cups are now included in 2022 and 2023. It is also a great option for playing with 2, 3 or 4 players, for on fun sofa nights. Beware, however, of gaming monetization that can empty the pocket of the youngest.
2. God of War: Ragnarok
It probably deserved to take the top spot in this ranking if the Elden Ring wasn’t so good. God of War: Ragnarök is the sequel to the popular God of War (2018) that made a mark among PS4 users. It is a dizzying mythological fresco of depth and precision, recognized by the press, and winner of many awards at The Game Awards 2022, including those for best performance and best narration. You play as Kratos and his son Atreus in the middle of the Nine Kingdoms of Norse mythology, in an epic adventure that pits you against the pantheon of Norse gods to prevent the end of the world, Ragnarök. An open-world RPG that will be hard to avoid for years to come, and a game we recommend to you blindfolded.
1. Elden Ring
A sacred monster from Japan, the Elden Ring is the latest creation from From Software studios (Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Sekiro). For the first time in the studio’s history, Elden Ring was created as a single-player open-world role-playing game. You will be immersed in the Underworld, a fantastic world created from scratch by the pen of George RR Martin (Game of Thrones books), merciless and above all incredibly beautiful. Respecting the principle of From Software games, Elden Ring will not take your hand, instead throwing you to eat the various wild animals that inhabit its open world without any explanation. Extremely difficult, Elden Ring is a challenge worth overcoming, giving you a Dungeon and Dragon-like experience in terms of exploration, character customization, and more generally world-building, and a story that carefully like poetry. Winner of the GOTY (best game of the year) award, it is one of the best games ever made, without a doubt.
