The best box arts from all PS4 games are ranked in order of their overall quality.
The best ps4 games of all time is a list of the best PlayStation 4 games. This list ranks them from worst to first, and includes box art for each game.
With digital media becoming more popular over physical releases, the PS4 may be one of the last systems to support physical media.
The box art may be the determining factor in whether or not you buy a game, and everytime you see it, you’ll be reminded of how much fun you had playing it.
The artwork used to advertise our favorite games is an important part of the experience, whether it’s beautiful, thrilling, or fascinating.
As the PS4 reaches the end of its life cycle and the PS5 takes its place in Sony fans’ homes across the world, now is a perfect moment to take a look back at some of the greatest PS4 box art.
15. Spider-Man from Marvel Comics (2018)
The PS4 journey of the friendly neighborhood superhero is one of the finest open-world experiences anybody could wish for.
It, like the cover image, wonderfully portrays the spirit of being Spider-Man.
Some may say it’s a little too basic, but when it comes to Spider-Man, simple is best. His game’s default outfit is amazing enough to be the sole focus on the cover.
It has a lot of movement and looks great.
What’s not to enjoy about that?
Until Dawn, number 14 (2015)
Until Dawn, an interactive horror drama by Supermassive Games, was an unexpected success in 2015.
Its multilinear narrative was thrilling and fast-paced, and the butterfly effect mechanism allowed for some entertaining multiplayer if you let different people manage each character.
The gloomy box art for Until Dawn tells you all you need to know about the game in a single picture, which I appreciate.
The skull atop the hourglass indicates that time is ticking and death is approaching our eight heroes, who can be seen standing in the snow in front of a cottage at the bottom of the glass.
Day One Edition of God of War (2018)
The main cover image for Santa Monica’s God of War is very nice; it depicts Kratos as having turned a new leaf and is now on a boat with his kid, most likely teaching him how to fish or something.
However, there’s always space for improvement, and the cover of the Day One Edition shows us what that could look like.
It depicts our heroes in battle with a ferocious troll many times their size.
It’s extremely dynamic, and rather than just showing us the location, it conveys the experience of playing the game.
Batman: Arkham Knight is the 12th installment in the Batman franchise (2015)
The final Arkham series release on PS4 — Batman: Arkham Knight – has a dynamic cover that tells us what playing the game would be like.
We see Batman flying down over the newly reloaded Batmobile, which he’ll most likely be boarding soon. Flying around Gotham and driving that vehicle around Gotham are two things you’ll be doing a lot in Arkham Knight, so WB deserves credit for being upfront.
Furthermore, the cover is symmetrical.
Symmetry, as we can see in many creative works, tends to make things attractive.
In the case of this cover, it works perfectly.
Bioshock: The Collection is the eleventh game in the Bioshock series (2016)
Bioshock: The Collection, a three-in-one bomb of a game containing all accessible Bioshock material to date, is another game that utilizes symmetry for dramatic effect.
The cover, which features a mystery lighthouse in the midst of the ocean, demonstrates this. The sophisticated metropolis of Rapture glows an eerie light under the sea.
Faint views of Columbia’s gigantic floating wards may be seen above the sky.
Bioshock 1, 2, and Infinite all convey the same narrative, despite their differences in substance and graphics.
A lighthouse, a man, and a city are all present at any same time.
Doom (Reverse Cover) is number ten (2016)
The default box art for Bethesda’s 2016 DOOM remake was, to put it mildly, underwhelming.
The Doomslayer may seem spectacular, but a close-up shot of a space marine confronting the spectator was so cliched that it quickly became a meme.
To satisfy fans, Bethesda held a vote to select the reversible cover image, and this was chosen as the winner.
This image perfectly encapsulates the spirit of DOOM, with hordes of demons charging headlong towards death at the hands of the Doomslayer.
Borderlands 3 is number nine (2019)
Borderlands 3 was one of the most eagerly anticipated games of the PS4’s lifespan.
And the game’s cover seems to be saying, “Hey, relax, I’m already here.”
It depicts Psycho, the classic Pandora dweller, in a posture evocative of Jesus in Christian holy art.
He raises his hand as if to say, “Be calm, I’m here,” which is eerily fitting considering the pre-release anticipation for this game.
The secret SHIFT code featured on the barrels of the golden weapons in the backdrop, which was part of Gearbox’s marketing effort, makes this cover art a little bit more unique than the others.
FarCry 5 is the eighth game in the series (2018)
Borderlands 3 isn’t the first game to use Christian-inspired box art.
The “Last Supper” by Leonardo da Vinci is featured in FarCry 5.
Joseph Seed, in the role of Jesus, is surrounded by his brothers and supporters, who act as his 12 Apostles.
The lush Hope County creates a beautiful image in the backdrop, but a chained prisoner and a collection of weapons in the front remind us of the cult’s cruelty.
The weapons, religious iconography, and the American flag in the center do an excellent job of encapsulating the game’s narrative elements.
It seems to be spectacular, if not heavenly.
Persona 5 (Steelbook Launch Edition) is the seventh game in the Persona series (2016)
From the character design to the user interface, everything in Persona 5 is attractive, and the cover art is no exception.
Take a peek at the art on the steelbook case included with Persona 5’s Launch Edition if you want to see something that will make you reconsider the definition of “cool.”
Despite the fact that it is a still picture, the angles and shadows give it a cinematic feel.
When you watch this, you can almost hear “Life Will Change” from the OST playing in the background.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is the sixth installment in the Metal Gear Solid series (2015)
When it comes to audible images…
When you view this game cover, tell me if you don’t hear Donna Burke say “wohooah!”
Hideo Kojima’s last Metal Gear Solid game’s box cover evokes the strong emotions experienced when playing this masterpiece.
Venom Snake’s calm determination, the shrapnel horn poking through his hair, and the realistic detail of his damaged skin are all excellent representations of the character and how well you come to know them during the game.
Furthermore, both the title logo and the V-shaped exclamation mark are graphic design masterpieces.
5. NieR Replicant (JP) version 1.22474487139 (2023)
We were all disappointed by Square Enix’s “improved” foreign version of NieR Replicant, which included lackluster 3D-rendered cover art.
What was wrong with the Japanese one, after all?
In the early 2000s, Japanese covers may have been a bit too delicate for foreign markets.
But, folks, those days are long gone!
Attack on Titan is a well-known anime series. There’s a thing called Genshin Impact.
On video game boxes, people can tolerate a little 2D art.
Fortunately, the reverse cover still retained the Japanese artwork. Simply turn that glossy paper over, and you’ll have a far more attractive game to show in your collection.
4. NieR: Automata (Japanese version) (2017)
In 2017, the same thing occurred with NieR Automata, but this time it made more sense.
People who purchase the Replicant “upgrade” are likely to be repeat customers, while Automata still needs to attract new customers, which an action-packed 3D battle scene may do better than 2D artwork.
Fortunately for us, Western fans, the Game of the YoRHa Edition was finally published, complete with Akihiko Yoshida’s original box art.
It sacrifices action for drama and contains significant spoilers, but it’s vague enough that you won’t notice until after you’ve finished playing.
I didn’t even see A2 the first time I saw it back there.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is the third game in the Dragon Age series (2014)
The box art of a game, in my opinion, should make an effect.
You should be able to see it a mile away and distinguish it from the rest of the game covers at a shop or on the internet.
This is accomplished in Dragon Age: Inquisition by putting the big dragon emblem front and center while also having precisely zero dragons in the image.
Closer inspection reveals the dragon to be nothing more than empty space in a dramatic scenario of demonic hordes descending from the fade as the Inquisitor reaches up into the gap, blazing sword in hand.
I’m not sure what else to call that if it isn’t art.
Every DA:I DLC’s advertising art would include the dragon form, giving us a collection of amazing imagery with the same ferocious theme.
2. Shadow of the Colossus (UK/Playstation Exclusive) (2018)
Not every region-specific box art is created in Japan.
Sony launched the Only On Playstation product line in 2019, which included ten exclusive blockbuster games and snazzy new cover art with bright colors and attractive design.
Shadow of the Colossus is one of my favorites, and it qualifies for the Only On Playstation category due to the unique remaster it received in 2018.
It’s bold yet understated, and the aquamarine hue is stunning.
1. Bloodborne (Playstation Exclusive / UK) (2015)
Bloodborne is one of the PS4’s most desired exclusives, and I’m sure it influenced many of you to choose Sony’s console over the Xbox One.
Bloodborne is honored for these accomplishments with this wonderfully simple cover from the Only On Playstation series.
The Saw Cleaver’s savage trick weapon stands out against the serene white silhouettes and lettering on a beautiful blue backdrop.
The original box art for Bloodborne isn’t terrible, but this cover art is just as polished as the game itself.
