10 PS4 games you need to play in 2016

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

Release Date: April 26

While this is probably the most anticipated game for PS4 owners, for good reasons, we're all acutely aware of it and it's coming relatively soon - hence, it's high placement in this list.

Uncharted 4 is the alleged end of Nathan Drake's adventures. We obviously have no idea how the game will end, thus the story of Drake, but Naughty Dog is definitely suggesting our hero may meet his demise. However that seems unlikely; the Uncharted series is rarely that serious and dark in tone, and it's a series in which the heroes always make it out alive. I don't think anyone wants this series to end with Drake's death.

Regardless of ending, though, the game looks unbelievable. Just like it did the last generation, Naughty Dog is pushing the limits of the PS4 in terms of graphics. The water, the mud, the sunlight, and, of course, Drake and his clothes, all look mind-blowing. Naughty Dog is also throwing in some new features, including driving, a rope for climbing/swinging/killing, and much more open areas.

There's a reason the Uncharted series is as beloved as it is, and the fourth installment looks set to take its place at the top of the mountain. A way too early prediction: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is a serious 2016 game of the year contender here. We cannot wait.
