Best value: Marvel's spider-man: miles morales

Spider-Man was one of the best games that hit the PS4, and now it's back with a whole new adventure starring Miles Morales. His storyline picks up after the end of the original game and features our new hero fight to protect Harlem after war breaks out. He'll have to measure being a hero against being just Miles and discover what it means to become Spider-Man along the way. You get a whole new story, along with a new hero that has his own sets of abilities to discover and master.

Best open world: Watch dogs: legion

Sometimes you want a big world to explore, and while the PS5 is brand new, it already has an excellent open-world game for you to indulge in. Watch Dogs: Legion takes you across the pond to a post-Brexit London where things are more dystopic than ever. You'll help DedSec deal with the surveillance state, and as you do, you can play as any NPC you run across. Different characters have unique abilities and skillsets, there is a co-op mode for playing with friends, and all of London is waiting for you to explore and liberate!
