Choosing the best PS5 games is harder than you'd think as Sony's state-of-the-art console has a wealth of games to pick from. The top PS5 games make use of the hardware, including the fast SSD, 3D audio and the DualSense controller's haptics.

My PS5 review explains how Sony's console is a must-own even if it is hard to find, if you want one take a look at our PS5 restock tracker. We update it whenever news of a PlayStation 5 restock is happening. If you want the latest hardware, then take a look at my feature 'PSVR 2: everything you need to know'. If you're looking ahead, then read my guide to the best upcoming PS5 games. Also take a look at my feature on the best PSVR 2 games coming soon.
