If you’ve already spent your parents’ life savings on a PS5, then you’re probably wondering if there are any games on it that you might want to buy. If you still have money left in your family’s trust fund, here are the top 5 justifications for having bought your next-gen console!


  1. Demon’s Souls ($69.99)

Nothing feels quite as refreshing as a game that couldn’t care less if you’re ready or not when it drops the giant troll thing with the baseball bat on you. Demon’s Souls has brutal difficulty, a massive world to explore, and some of the best visuals in modern gaming. But, as stated, this is not an easy game, so if you’re just here for the view, you can always turn back and play candy crush.

  1. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart  ($69.99)

Go and look up the opening parade scene in this game and tell us you didn’t slap your jaw at the visuals, because we definitely did. Everyone’s favourite Fox/Robot duo finally gets a sequel with breath-taking environments and an insane amount of detail thanks to the PS5’s powerful hardware. Also, remember to actually play the game while admiring the high definition character presentation, because they are THAT pretty.

  1. Returnal ($69.99)

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to stumble onto your own corpse on an alien planet filled with fantastic scenery and pretty parasites you can wear on your skin, then you should definitely check out Returnal. This massive open-world game pushes the hardware to its limits as it throws you into a fantastic and brutal challenge that you will keep replaying until your eyes feel dry.

  1. Destruction Allstars ($19.99)

This is a game about smashing cars and running along the tops of walls. What more do you want? The stunning visuals and impressive realistic damage effects make this game a leap forward in gaming hardware and is something you have to try out. And as always, don’t try this at home!

  1. Astro’s Playroom (Free)

This little gem comes free on PS5 to showcase the console’s capabilities, including all the fancy new stuff the controller can do, such as haptics and adaptive triggers. But beyond that, the game is really fun and a solid platforming adventure and a much-needed break from the typical PS5 games with all the evil trolls and demons. Definitely check this one out!
