2016 introduced us to tons of interesting PlayStation 4 games. From first-person shooters to simulations to role-playing games, name it all you can. As a video game enthusiast, I can't help but get myself surrounded with all the awesome titles all-year long. Well, of course, that also means having to put extra weight out your pocket. But hey, who cares? If it's worth it, it's worth it. Let's cut it all out and go straight to the main juice. Without further ado, here are (what I think) the top 5 PS4 games of this year.

Far Cry Primal

Seriously, who on Earth will not fall in love with this PlayStation 4 game? But I have to admit, at first, I was kind of skeptical. I first thought of this game (which is actually a spinoff) as something to be more of an overkilled DLC for any other installments in the franchise. Glad I was wrong, though. I love the game's take on multiple time periods as well as the vast environments. I love how extensive the weapon choices and gameplay are. It's like the right kind of Far Cry formula was adapted by this PlayStation 4 game. So, overall, it's a good bang for your buck.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

I remember PlayStation 4 players from all over the corners of the Internet clamoring Uncharted 2: A Thief's End being a great game. And yeah, I actually dig it. First off, the gameplay is a topnotch. And most importantly, the writing is just purely of excellence. Personally, I love games that offer good content or story, regardless of how good or bad the gameplay is. But with this title, man, it's just over the top. I can tell that Naughty Dog ate something that day and just made the coolest game ever made in history.

Dark Souls 3

I have two reasons for putting Dark Souls 3 here in the best PlayStation 4 games list: first is because it's a difficult game; and second because, well, it's a really, really difficult game. I seriously want to punch FromSoftware devs right in their faces. But how does a game of this difficulty be easily likeable? Just what kind of sorcery did the studio apply to achieve such excellence? I don't really care. All I know is that the combat system is developed in perfection. Bosses, albeit being scary and a pain in the head, are hard to forget. And most of all, despite how challenging the game is, you'd want to do your best to defeat it. There's that enticing power (unexplainable, though) that simply makes you want to experience this game for a good amount of hours.

Overwatch

Blizzard has once again showed to the world their talent when it comes to developing games. Overwatch is simply the latest addition to their resume. I first played Overwatch in PS4, though I eventually moved to PC (as soon as my rig was completed). But I won't deal with platform wars, as this simply sucks. What I love about OW is its lore and the story of each character. Remember those animated shorts that the studio wittingly used to bring the hype up? Man, I swear the company can make a good movie out of those. The gameplay, on the other hand, is remarkable. There's that player restriction, allowing you to do your role even better. For instance, if you're playing Lucio, you're really limited to playing support and showcasing his Sound Amplifier weapon.

Titanfall 2

Surprise, I just bought Titanfall 2 a week ago! Ha! Okay, here's the thing: I purchased the game not because I have so much faith on it; but rather, I wanted to see for myself if Respawn did improve the faults that the original game had. What I really love about it is the combat system. Here, you can run on walls, glide and what-have-you -- things you can barely do in other shooter games. And mind you, the addition of a single-player campaign hit me hard. It's just consistently satisfying and fun to play with. I'd highly recommend Titanfall 2 to anyone who's looking for a shooter game that offers features outside of the typical genre.
