10 Best PlayStation 4 Collections

Visit our list of all Playstation 4 games for the full lineup.

10. Zero Escape: The Nonary Games

Visual Novels have come a long way and the Zero Escape series is a testament to the creativity of the interactive genre. Developed by Spike Chunsoft, the Nonary Games is a bundle that comes with a remastered version of 999 and Virtue’s Last Reward.

For the price of one, you get to experience two of Zero Escape’s famed titles. Both games are packed with a massive branching storyline with multiple endings, and features the same ‘Escape the Room’ mechanic that the series was known for.

This remaster not only brings the 3DS classic to the PlayStation 4 console, but it also introduces a bunch of quality of life improvements that makes every living hell for these survivors bearable.

One of these upgrades include a fancy dual screen mode for 999 which is akin to the 3DS version. This is helpful for new fans when solving puzzles and making decisions that might end up killing their favorite character. It’s a twisted and complicated game and it doesn’t stop until you’ve reached the endgame.

9. The Walking Dead Collection - The Telltale Series

Telltale’s most popular series paved the way for games with Episodic formats. Clementine’s journey will forever be cemented as one of gaming’s most iconic moments

It’s set in the zombie-infested world of Robert Kirkman’s gritty undead drama. Lead Clementine in her journey of self-discovery in a society bereft of humanity. Throughout her adventure, you’ll meet an intriguing cast of characters ranging from the trustworthy partner to the homicidal maniac. Your choices will impact the game’s ending and Clem’s personality.

In this Collection, enjoy the early days of Clem with the iconic Lucas Lee in Season One and make your way to its succeeding seasons and extra content for only $50.

This includes A New Frontier, 400 Days, and the Michonne mini-series. The only downside to this collection is the missing final season, which was released after Telltale’s unfortunate bankruptcy. Nonetheless, it’s still an emotional trip worth reliving OR playing for the first time.

8. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Naughty Dog’s very own Naughty Dog returns to the PlayStation 4 console with overhauled visuals and a bunch of new content.

This Collection contains three of the Tasmanian Devil’s hit titles with new and improved graphics. You will no longer be looking at polygonal characters. The world of Crash Bandicoot now looks like a game fit for this generation. The addition of quality of life improvements are also present such as audio and voice acting polish, checkpoints to ease your frustrations, and time trials for a real challenge.

The only thing that was kept from the original was its challenging platformer experience. Expect hair-pulling moments on all three of its titles, each one breaking apart your sanity.

It’s the Dark Souls of Remasters and what could be better than that? A playscore of 8.62

7. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy

Finally the Phoenix Wright franchise is branching out on multiple platforms. This courtroom adventure makes its way to the PlayStation 4 and the legendary Lawyer is ready for murder mysteries, court shenanigans and wacky anime moments.

The Ace Attorney Trilogy contains all 14 episodes, spanning the first three games, in one gorgeous collection. For the uninitiated, the Phoenix Wright series is a combination of multiple genres including visual novel and point and click set in the four-walls of justice.

Interview suspects with different walks of life such as circus freaks, spiritual mediums, and even a childhood friend. Each suspect offers a variety of challenges for you to solve with logical precision and once it’s all done, the satisfying sound of ‘Objection!’ makes you crave for more.

It’s the perfect entry point for new fans of the series, especially to non-Nintendo users. A playscore of 8.75

6. Spyro Reignited Trilogy

Much like Crash Bandicoot, another childhood favorite makes its way to the modern consoles. The classic platformer from Activision rekindles the old flames of its series with improved visuals and gameplay all thanks to the Unreal Engine 4’s power.

The titular dragon still has everything he needs in this upscaled HD adventure and this trilogy doesn’t disappoint. For only $40, it lets you experience the best version of Spyro’s three enchanting titles.

Like any other Remaster, aside from its graphical upgrades, new audio and voice lines will greet you as you make your way through its expansive realms. And with all that, this Collection was hailed by critics and gamers for its faithful reimagining of the PlayStation classic.

5. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection

Borderlands 3 may be out for quite some time now, and it’s hella fun, but nothing could beat the previous entries of this insane first person shooter from Gearbox. This collection packs two of their most beloved games except the original. That means Borderlands 2 and the Pre-Sequel are inside one glorious and handsome collection.

Get ready to dive into the ridiculous world of Pandora once again with some revamped features and added content. Enjoy all their DLC’s, smooth visual upgrade and 60 frames per second on your fancy 4K display.

With all these in store, your adventure into this dangerously crazy world is better than ever. Grab a friend or do things alone, but it's always fun when you’re with a crew that’s as insane as you are. It’s Borderlands we’re talking about, it's always fun with friends.

4. BioShock: The Collection

There’s always a man, a lighthouse, and a city. And there’s always a Remaster and a Collection waiting to happen. Irrational’s award-winning first-person-shooter series gets the all-in-one package for your PlayStation 4.

Revel in the horrifying yet grand underwater city of Rapture in the Remastered versions of BioShock 1 and 2; or soar into the city above the clouds with Infinite’s Colombia. All three games rock their stylish steampunk themes with a fast-paced shooting gameplay.

In this Collection, you’re not only given their three best titles. All DLC’s including 2’s Minerva’s Den and Infinite’s Burial At Sea are also available for you to enjoy. It’s the essential BioShock experience.

For anyone who hasn’t played this series before, would you kindly? A playscore of 8.89

3. Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX

Tetsuya Nomura’s playground of imagination. The Kingdom Hearts series is known for its interesting crossover between Final Fantasy and Disney. It’s such an ambitious series that to this day, Sora’s journey might not be over yet.

This Collection contains all the necessary Kingdom Hearts titles for you to play. If you think the mainline entries like Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 are enough to understand the entirety of its story, you’re wrong.

You are literally taking all the 6 Kingdom Hearts games since 2002 in one pack. All in glorious High-Definition. Unfortunately, this doesn’t include Aqua’s 2.8, Dream Drop Distance and its infamous mobile game story, KH X.

It’s the perfect game for you to get inside this convoluted yet beautiful series before you get your hands on Kingdom Hearts III. A playscore of 8.93

2. Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection

Nathan Drake’s journey may be over, but it’s always great to relive his best globetrotting moments before his retirement. The Collection includes all three Uncharted titles with a few improvements to the action-adventure experience such as the additions of trophies, a photo mode, and challenging difficulty choices.

It’s the ultimate test of your hardened adventurer skills and what could be more fitting than its HD graphics and better audio to suit your gaming blockbuster needs.

The story remains the same on all three titles, but going back on the epic journey of Nathan and his friends is something special, especially after Uncharted 4’s emotional ending.

Greatness from small beginnings, so they say, and this Collection has everything for you to go back and witness Naughty Dog’s and Nathan Drake’s humble beginnings up to their defining moment in gaming history.

1. Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster

Reigning supreme in this list of great PlayStation 4 Collections is Square Enix’s JRPG that once melted our hearts and ready to do it again. Return to Zanarkand in this HD remaster covers both Final Fantasy X and its sequel, Final Fantasy X-2.

Join Tidus, Yuna, and their gang of memorable characters as they band together to put a stop to the entity responsible for ruining their world. There isn’t much difference compared to the original game aside from the visual upgrades. However, what made this Remaster worth considering is the addition of its sequel, X-2, which features Yuna and his girls in a whole new journey.

Though both games differ in terms of storytelling and reception, this Collection is still a strong reminder of Square’s glory days in the JRPG scene. If you’re into the mushy love story between Tidus and Yuna, or simply adore its fascinating cast of characters, you won’t be disappointed.
