Way back in ye olde September we took out our feather quills and ink bottles, lowered our oil lanterns to a slow burn, set aside our suspicions about this newfangled “penicillin” that people have been harping on about and compiled a list of the pros and cons of the PlayStation Now service where we heaped praise upon its vast library of games.
Since that time, Sony has seen a massive boost in subscriptions to its monthly service (due entirely to our article of course, nothing to do with the sizeable, permanent price drop and addition of huge AAA titles that followed shortly thereafter). This got us worrying that there are now legions of gamers who are new to PlayStation Now being completely overwhelmed by the sheer volume of games facing them.
Sure, the AAA big-hitters that are likely to be first in line, but once they’re out of the way, where do you go next? With over 600 titles to choose from, picking the right one can be a daunting task, so we’re here to help by highlighting eight(ish) great games tucked away inside PS Now’s cavernous library that deserve to be at the head of the line.
Please note: We previously published a list of the best hidden gems given away as part of PlayStation Plus. For the sake of diversity we will not be including any entries from that list here, instead this will focus solely on titles available on PS Now that have never been given away as part of PS Plus.
