Hideo Kojima's latest epic is certainly controversial, but it cannot be denied that Death Stranding is a beautiful and, at times, horrific experience. Though it originally released on PS4, its subsequent PC release showed how incredible it can be when rendered at such high fidelity.
Unlike many of the games on this list, Death Stranding needs an upgrade to 4K/60fps not for its moment-to-moment gameplay, but for the world and story built around it. So much of why Death Stranding works relies on unperturbed immersion, and being able to experience its environmental storytelling in the finest detail — without losing any performance — is key to the experience.
So there you have it: eight PS4 games that so desperately need a 4K/60fps patch to take full advantage of the PS5's hardware.
What games did we miss? What would you have included? Which game from the list would you be most excited for if a patch was announced? Let us know in the comments down below!
