The sports genre is one of the most popular in all of gaming – you name a sport, there’ll be a game and there’ll be a whole bunch of people playing it. There is such diversity in the world of sports gaming that it often feels like we are spoiled for choice, and each sport usually has two or three titles targeting the top spot. The PlayStation 4 generation of games probably consisted of some of the best and most diverse sports games of all time (aside from the PlayStation 2 era), and that’s why it’s about time we tackle some of those games, because there are so many out there who are still getting up. So what are some of the best PS4 sports games worth playing today?
#15 Madden NFL 21
The first game on this list of the best PS4 sports games is a perennial favorite Driving me crazy Series. Madden NFL 21 follows the trend that most EA sports games are following: being almost a copy (apart from improved graphics) of its predecessor and the predecessor, and so on and so forth. This game received a mixed reception, with the gameplay being one of the game’s few shining lights. However, there were several technical issues affecting it; The feedback from the players was also negative at the time, but mostly there was a lack of innovation and a lack of creativity. hardcore Driving me crazy Fans will still like this game, but it won’t attract new ones.
#14 NBA 2K22
That NBA 2K The series has been running since 2005 and has reached some lofty heights in the process. NBA 2K22 is an entry that would fit somewhere in the middle, or maybe even slightly up. The series has been hit and miss over the years NBA 2K21 embodied this by being one of the series’ all-time lows. It could be argued that they became careless or too relaxed because of their biggest competitor (NBA Live) withdraw from the race. NBA 2K22 showed that the publisher was once again going in the right direction, with this game being a really great start to the series.
#13 Gran Turismo® Sport
That Gran Turismo series has become synonymous with the PlayStation platform. This PlayStation 4 exclusive sports game focused on online competitive driving, and the massive car collections you’ve seen in the older games weren’t as diverse as this title – which, as expected, didn’t go down well and let the game down. But the Gran Turismo Series are still going to be incredibly clean and very pretty, and this one was one of the prettiest; The graphics are phenomenal and hold up very well to this day, which is a testament to the game itself. Nonetheless, despite its poor qualities, this is still a good game in a high-profile racing series.
A football game with a difference, something that made for a very unusual but incredibly memorable PS4 sports game. Mutant Football League is a violent, over-the-top take on cherished US soccer. It draws a lot of inspiration from the original Mutant League Football from 1993, as well as other games from the same genre such as e.g NFL Blitz. It’s quirky and unique games like this that often outperform realistic titles like this Driving me crazy (although some people might hate to admit it) and when it comes to the most fun football can have, Mutant Football League is the most fun you can have.
#11 Everyone’s Golf (2017)
That Everyone’s golf Series is another PlayStation exclusive series and follows the strain we just mentioned Mutant League Football: A quirky, fun, relaxing and easy to play game. This golf game can be played at a leisurely pace and is not too stressful. That’s not to say it doesn’t require skill though… oh no, as you still have the ability to get creative with your shots, but it also adds the option for players to drive golf carts the entire course – I mean, that’s all there is to golf, isn’t it? Everyone’s golf also has some great character customization, a fun online mode, and an excellent free roam option.
#10 MLB The Show 21
In sports games, realism plays a big part in the fun you can have as well as the overall experience. MLB The Show 21 is the most realistic baseball game you can play, and while it has some minor glitches, it’s still a must-have for baseball enthusiasts around the world. Those issues: the mechanics often feel a bit slow and quite clunky, and there was only a slight improvement compared to the previous installment, which was disappointing due to the anticipation of the game due to the console’s generational leap, but overall it’s a real one fun PS4 sports game.
#9 Super Mega Baseball 3
That Super Mega Baseball series has grown into one of the most enduring and well-developed sports game franchises out there, and number three is the best of them all. Realism was mentioned when talking about it mlb the show, and no, Super mega baseball 3 isn’t that realistic, but when it comes to the most fun you can have playing a baseball game, this is it. It’s simply the best baseball game out there; it’s quirky and fun, but also quite challenging – it’s no walk in the ballpark though, that’s for sure. It ticks all the boxes of what makes a great PS4 sports game, and the series only gets better after that.
#8 PGA Tour 2K21
The golfing world has been dominated by the PGA Tiger Woods Franchised for several years, but the series lost its magic after parting ways with the golfer brand and struggled to reclaim it. That PGA Tour 2K21 was a relaunch of The golf club series, but now under the 2K Sports branding, and it breathed some magic back into the life of the golf genre. It received positive reviews, with people acknowledging that the game has retained some of the realism of its predecessors while also adding a lot more difficulty to its levels, but the whole thing is just a lot more appealing and accessible to a wider audience.
#7 FIFA 22
Every man and his dog has heard about it FIFA series, it is the biggest and most famous football franchise of all time. This long-running football game has gone on to become one of the best-selling franchises of all time FIFA Fans are very loyal to every released game. However, the series suffers from an identity crisis as the games are often the same as the previous ones; fifa 21 was awful (that’s right, I said it) though fifa 22 tried to bring the series back to the level it once ran at and has done a good job with some people saying this is for the best FIFA game for quite some time.
#6 F1 2020
This is the 12thth Game in the long-running series and is probably as good as it gets when it comes to racing games. As expected, F1 2020 has pristine graphics and incredibly realistic mechanics with beautiful aesthetics. When it comes to immersive racing games, this is the cornerstone for everyone; You can either have fun alone in the addicting single player mode or compete against your friends in the game’s wonderful multiplayer mode. It really is – or at least it should be – every F1 fan’s dream game and I feel sorry for the titles that must follow it, because living up to it is a monumental task.
EA Sports’ MMA game series is the pinnacle of fighting games, and the positive evolution it’s taken in its lifetime has been quite an achievement. UFC4 is an incredibly detailed game that’s tremendously fun, and while the base game mechanics still need some work, the other aspects are as smooth as they come (for the most part). This is the best game in the series and it’s still holding up remarkably well despite being two years old, so EA is actually in no rush to release another one as this game is still getting updates to its roster as well as a few other things .
This version of Pro Evolution Football was one of the best in the series, it might as well have been the moment the franchise took over FIFA as the best football game there is – even if some still disagree. This series was always a step behind FIFA When it came to graphics (and they were miles behind at one point), licenses were another issue, and gameplay was often questioned. The improvements that eFootball Pro Evolution 2020 were very impressive, so much so that it’s probably the best game of the whole series – apart from the classic PlayStation 2 ProEvo title that is.
A game that is a bit different in terms of PS4 sports games is the stylish stunt racing game. FutureGrind. This game is all about tricks, skill and speed as players must hit the perfect line in the most challenging stunt sport of the future. You have to chain together huge combos on rails made of floating rails, but be careful because if you touch the rail with the wrong color you will explode. If this game is anything, it is different, and it has to be given credit for that. However, if you take a step back and see how good this game actually is, you’ll be really impressed; Extreme loads of fun, exciting, never boring and super lively… what’s not to love?
#2 Rocket League
Speaking of different, this is one of the most unique and entertaining PS4 sports games of all time – it’s football but with rocket-powered cars, what’s not to love? When this game was released in 2015, it didn’t take long for it to become a gaming sensation and quickly become a global name. rocket league was praised for its gameplay improvements over its predecessor SARP Battle Cars, But not only that, but the graphics and the overall presentation make the game something quite impressive. Thanks to the fact that the game will also be free in 2020, the popularity of rocket league went to another level, with a whole host of people now experiencing it for the first time, an audience that has made this game popular to this day.
#1 Tony Hawk’s Pro Skaters 1 + 2
So there we have it, number one on this list of the best PS4 sports games worth playing today Tony Hawk’s Pro Skaters 1 + 2. This remake of the groundbreaking originals from back then is quite the trend and catapulted Tony Hawk’s skating games back into the public eye and made them relevant again after a difficult few years. This version has it all, crisp graphics, wonderfully smooth mechanics, as well as the humor and everything else that made the originals so revered. It just enhances everything with such authority it’s hard not to admire it, and it still packs a killer soundtrack that has become synonymous with the series.
