Editor's Notes

May 07, 2020:

Selecting the best puzzle games for the PS4 was no easy task because thousands of PS4 games, including exclusive games, have been released since Sony debuted the original PlayStation. Making our selections meant looking beyond today and examining previous years' releases to give you the best of the best.

Puzzle games of today involve much more detail and story lines than what older generations may expect. Gone are the days of a simple, competitive game of Tetris, although there is a new and improved version, the Tetris Effect, that offers mind-blowing graphics and new gaming options. Most puzzle games are single-player only, which might sound boring, but it actually help you become more immersed in the game. The Last Guardian and Shadow of the Colossus are two examples. Both offer the stunning imagery today's technology offers, along with intricate stories that unfold as you delve farther into the game.

If you are looking for the most levels of play, The Talos Principle has 120 different puzzles to solve, while The Swapper brings you more challenging puzzles as you progress through its stages. For a truly immersive experience, Perpetual's Moss is an award-winning virtual reality selection that makes you practically lose yourself in its VR world. Keep in mind that the PS4 has many other gaming genres to choose from, including games for kids, in case some of these selections are simply too much for your younger children.
