Starting tomorrow, Sony’s PS Plus will be divided into PS Plus Essential, PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium From PS Plus Extra you get access to a whole range of PS4 games that you can play at no additional cost. These include some real top-class players like Celeste, Hollow Knight, Bloodborne, Red Dead Redemption 2 or God of War or Horizon Zero Dawn.
For example, there are a total of 10 games that have an average rating of over 90 on OpenCritic. This list here offers a terrifically practical overview of all titles with rating, genre, platform and more.
That’s what it’s all about: Sony is making some changes to the PS Plus subscription. This comes in three tiers starting tomorrow and offers, for example, several hundred PS4 and PS5 titles if you subscribe to PS Plus Extra or Premium. You also get the normal monthly bonus titles with Essential, Premium also offers PS1, PS2 and PS3 games.
List sorted games: It may be difficult to keep track of things, although a new, self-made list can help. Redditor anchuto has organized all PS Plus Extra games in a spreadsheet. It is based on the average values that the individual games have achieved on the review aggregator site OpenCritic. Of course, this can only ever be a rough guideline, but it can certainly serve as a guide.
The best titles include:
- God of War – 95 on Open Critic
- Red Dead Redemption 2 – 95 on Open Critic
- Celeste – 93 on Open Critic
And some of the worst include:
- Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers – 29 on Open Critic
- Whisper Cluck – 35 on Open Critic
- Left Alive: Day One Edition – 37 on Open Critic
Here you can find the list as a Google spreadsheet, this is the Reddit contribution:

How the list works: All games are sorted by rating. Accordingly, the titles that were able to get the most best reviews are ranked highest. The further down you go, the lower the ratings. In addition, one column shows the platform, another the genre. Games marked in red have a date when they will disappear from the subscription catalogue. The X marks are a personal reminder of which games have already been played.

So if you feel a bit overwhelmed by the many titles and don’t know where to start, you can simply work through this list. Just try the titles above and see if they’re fun too. Personally, I’d definitely recommend Celeste, Hollow Knight, Control, XCOM 2, Frostpunk, and Outer Wilds for starters if you’re new to them.
