The 6 hardest PlayStation 4 games of all time

There are people who thrive under pressure. For gamers, sometimes this means a giant monster breathing down their neck with the potential of one-shotting them into oblivion.

The PlayStation console has been home for a number of rather difficult and challenging titles over the years, and considering we are nearing the next generation, it is time to look at the hardest PlayStation 4 games of all time. If you are a fan of struggling, you need to play these before PlayStation 5 comes out.

I agree with bloodborne, cuphead, darkest dungeon and sekiro but nioh 2 and remnant don’t belong imo. Dark souls 1 and 3 beats those in terms of difficulty. Sekiro is #1 imo and cuphead may be #2. Those games are brutal in their own way.

The hardest game I played on PS4 was velocity 2x..the platinum of it is so tough

Nioh 2 isn't hard? Are you insane bro? It's insanely difficult. I'm struggling through it at the moment and personally, it certainly deserves to be on this list.

bouzebbal1400d ago

I never said nioh2 wasn't hard, but velocity 2x requires much more skills to master

VerminSC1400d ago

It’s hard initially but gets easy. Also it’s stupid how OP some builds are it’s borderline cheese. Also playing through missions with 2 other players makes it easy.

Remnant has its moments. The main sp game of Bloodborne wasn't that hard,but some of the bosses in the chalice dungeons were including the dlc. I haven't even finished the first Nioh so I haven't bothered with 2..lol. I tried Cuphead at a friends house & the game is hard. Sekiro can be hard at times but with patience & learning their move set you can overcome the obstacles.

The binding of isaac platinum is hard and the game is hard to master

I fired up for the 1st time Remnant From the Ashes last night being told it's just like Bloodborne but quicker.......3hrs later it's on ebay if anyone wants it? Lol.
It's stupidly hard!

I found Bloodborne a challenge that's for sure but really rewarding too when you get to another checkpoint or finish off a boss. Its a fantastic game.

loxim1401d ago

So did you not like Remnant or was it actually hard? I can't tell from your comment right before the end. I've not played it at all.

VerminSC1401d ago

I bought it a few days ago. It’s a decent game, worth the sale price but not much more. Guns feel good, loot is very sparse, and enemies aren’t super diverse. Also feels pretty unpolished. Pretty difficult, but not that engaging IMO.

REDGUM1401d ago

It was admittedly too hard for me. I suppose from there I create a distaste for it.
I'm sure its a great game if I git gud at it but I have more in my backlog to play 1st so will move on. There's no real competition for Bloodborne in my books though, that game stands in my top 3 of this gen.

Mithan1401d ago

I find it hard, just because the mobs "mob you" in a lot of areas, and you can't easily get away from that. I didn't play it much as a result and consider it a waste of $70. I've finished all the Souls games.

Sekiro is hard, just because I can't get the timing down but maybe after playing Ghosts of Tsushima, I will go back and have an easier time. Ghosts is hard to master as well, but once it clicks, you become a pretty good ass kicker. By master, I mean go into battle and use your moves correctly.

Mithan1401d ago

You can get Remnant free on the Epic Store today.

loxim1400d ago

I don't care for the souls like games myself for two reasons. I suck at them and I don't enjoy them. I never played dark souls 1 or 2, but I did play 3 and bloodborne briefly. Never finished them. The genre is to stressful for me. I love the concept of remnant but I don't know if I'd like it with it being a souls type game.

Uncharted 4 crushing is outright broken according to many gamers!

Storm231401d ago

I had a blast going through U4 on crushing recently. Plan on doing the same with Lost Legacy soon.

Knushwood Butt1401d ago

It's extremely difficult if you don't use cheats like weapon select and infinite ammo.

I did it without cheats, but that fight in the abandoned, multi-level mansion near the end of the game is insanely difficult. Probably took me more than 100 attempts.


CantThinkOfAUsername1400d ago

Surprisingly, this particular fight took me much more tries on Normal than Crushing. My nightmare was the Ship Graveyard chapter in both Uncharted 3 and 4. 105 tries.

CantThinkOfAUsername1400d ago

Uncharted 1 on Brutal is the one outright broken!

Escamotage1400d ago

Uncharted 4 crushing – when you're ambushed in Avery's mansion with Elena took me almost all day to beat.
