    I was asking a similar question in the SW Battlefront 2 thread, but figured it might be a good idea to post a new thread about this:

    I see the whole multiplayer/online gaming is where most PS4 games seem to be designed for these days, so I was wondering if there are any cool games that are also worthwhile getting for offline/single player mode?

    Yazuka 0 and Kuwami (and soon 6)

    Horizon: Zero Dawn
    Ratchet and Clank

    And this is just looking at my physical collection. Didn’t even look at what I have digitally.

    Do you also prefer playing single player/offline mode?

    I’ve very into story driven games. I’ll play some multiplayer (Borderlands 2, Destiny 2, Monster Hunter: World, and Overwatch primarily), but give me something with an epic story over a multiplayer any day. Pretty much why, as I’ve stated in numerous posts, two of my favorite games of all time are Final Fantady VII and Persona 5, and I’m playing through games like Star Ocean, NieR:Automata, Yakuza 0 primarily right now.

    Thanks, man!
    I am glad to hear there are still good games for single player offline gaming. I want to get some new game(s) and your suggestions are much appreciated!

    Dark Souls 1-3 (one is being remastered this spring)
    Bloodborne
    The Witcher 3
    Persona 5
    Fallout 4
    Skyrim
    Doom
    FF15
    FF14 - even though it’s an MMO, it’s has an amazing single-player story. The game has options to auto-join for dungeons (if MMO’s are your thing)
    Wolfenstein- single player shooter. Hilariously over the top
    Metro/Redux - dual pack single player FPS takes place in bombed out Russian train systems
    Nioh- it’s dark souls in feudal Japan, and excellently crafted

    thanks a lot for all the suggestions.
    I'm going to order some new game(s).

    on a related note: Is it possible to play a two-player game online with a friend without having a PSN+ subscription?

    I'm gonna order Witcher 3 and probably also Fallout 4.

    is Bioshock a cool single player game?

    Witcher 3 is absolutely amazing, Horizon: Zero Dawn has been fun, and if you own a playstation, you're missing an amazing game if you pass up The Last of Us.

    I don't remember much about B2, but Bioshock Infinite is also a big mindfuck story-wise, and visual wise it's just gorgeous; especially in contrast to Rapture (the setting for B1)

    Fuuuuuuuck yes. The first ranks as one of my favorite games ever, and 2 and Infinite were great also.

    Another vote for the entire BioShock series....phenomenal games and Infinite ties in amazingly well to the other two. By the end of Infinite you're totally mind-fucked by how it all connects.


    I'll also say RE 7 was really, really good. Ignore the ridiculous fanboys that say it's trash; it's awesome and reminded me a lot of the original RE. Speaking of which, the Resident Evil remake (called REMake by RE fans) on PS4 is fantastic. I think you can pick it up on the PS Store for like 20 bucks.

    I refuse to play RE 7 alone at night... which might be why I’m still trying to beat it.

    Not only is Bloodbourne great, but if you have PS Plus, it’s free next week along with Ratchet and Clank.

    Far cry 4 was awesome, and I suspect far cry 5 will be awesome as well

    The last few years have been very good with single player games.

    While the Dark Souls trilogy (and counting Bloodborne because that's From Software's shtick) has multiplayer, it certainly stands on it's own as single player. And one of the best ways of story telling with minimalism allowing the lore and exploration to sink the player in.

    Regarding the Bioshocks, 1 and Infinite are great for different reasons, but both are great story driven FPS games (coming from somebody who has sworn off FPS games for ages). 2 doesn't count for me. :lol:

    I thought the Just Cause games (namely 2 and 3) were awesome dumb fun sandbox games. Speaking of sandbox, the Saints Row series are my favorites (namely from 2-4). I prefer them to any of the GTAs for their sheer audacity and not taking themselves too seriously. Give them a chance if you haven't yet.

    Last year a great year for games. Resident Evil 7, Persona 5, Nier Automata, Cuphead, Yakuza 0, all great single player games.

    Also Undertale is pretty awesome.

    Oh, yes, I have Far Cry 4 and love it! I have not finished it, though, got stuck at some campaign and got frustrated.....this is about a year a go or so, I should get back to it!
