7. South Park: The Fractured but Whole

With a name like that, how can you not love this game? The Fractured but Whole is a fully-fledged RPG starring the foul-mouthed children of South Park.

5. DC Universe Online

DC Universe Online is a long-running MMORPG that launched in 2011 and still receives regular updates. Create whatever kind of hero you’d like and tackle quests with your friends in this grand adventure.

Still referred to as one of the best fighting games of all time, Marvel vs Capcom 2 offers a massive roster of characters, stunning art, and explosive gameplay that still holds up in 2022.

Activision

3. X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Based on the terrible 2009 film of the same name, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a claw-slashingly good time. In fact, it was shockingly excellent, offering brutal gameplay that almost makes up for how awful the movie is. Almost.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

2. Batman Arkham series

The Batman Arkham series practically revolutionized superhero video games, featuring a darker, grittier take on the Caped Crusader. These games looked and felt expensive, with some of the best combat in video game history.

1. Marvel’s Spider-Man series

Marvel’s Spider-Man and Miles Morales are inarguably some of the best first-party PlayStation games of all time. This is thanks to their fast-paced gameplay, believable characters, and stories that will no doubt be remembered for years to come.
