The PS5 has been out for nearly two years now but still, it doesn’t have that many exclusives as Sony is still keeping up with support for the PS4.

In this list, we’ll be giving you the best PS5 games so far. The list will have games coming from different genres to help you find some of the best PS5 games to play this October.
Of course, not everything on this list will be a PS5 exclusive but thanks to the current-gen console’s backwards compatibility, you can play PS4 titles with an improved overall experience.

If you’re a fan of platformer games, you should check out the copy of Astro’s Playroom already installed on your system. This is a free game included with every unit of the PS5 and although free games can sometimes be a bit of a letdown, Astro’s Playroom gives us a delightful experience.
The main purpose of Astro’s Playroom is to show you how the DualSense controller works but nonetheless, it’s still a great game to play.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
The sequel to Marvel‘s Spider-Man from Insomniac Games, you get to play as Miles Morales this time around. If you like swinging through the streets of New York while taking on some familiar villains in the Spider-Man universe, this game is definitely for you.

Resident Evil Village
Dubbed one of the best games in the Resident Evil series, you take on the role of Ethan Winters as he sets out to rescue his daughter. You’ll face off against a variety of werewolves, vampires, and even fish mutants. The game adds more emphasis to the combat system while still keeping up with the survival system the Resident Evil franchise is known for.
Resident Evil Village is also one of the games you should play as you prepare for Halloween. Check out our list here!
Demon’s Souls for the PS5 launched alongside the console back in November 2020 and although it was originally released for the PS3, this was a remake. We tend to steer clear of remakes since usually, they don’t bring anything new to the table. However, Demon’s Souls for the PS5 had a lot of changes including improved gameplay.
The Dark Souls trilogy is known for putting players to the test. If you’re up for a challenge, definitely try your hand at Demon’s Souls on the PS5.
What’s a list of the best games to play on the PS5 if we wouldn’t be including GTA 5? Originally released in 2013, Rockstar released an upgraded version for the PS5 this year. It’s also rumored that GTA 6 is coming soon so if you want to save your money, you can always opt for GTA Online.
At the moment, GTA Online is free on the PS Store if you don’t want to buy the base game. The online mode is also enjoyable as you get to participate in a ton of activities with other players.
