PlayStation Reveals 2021’s Top Games and GTA 5 Tops the List
PlayStation recently released their most-downloaded game for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PlayStation VR and their top free-to-play titles. These lists are always interesting to review to gain some insight into the gaming community’s habits over the past year. Notably, Grand Theft Auto 5 was the most downloaded game on the PlayStation 4.
GTA 5 tops the list of other top games for the PS4, retaining its popularity seven years after its original release. The past year again saw some new content coming to the popular action-adventure game. There were the usual festive updates and item additions. More recently, Rockstar Games added a brand new story mode in a new DLC featuring Dr. Dre. These additions along with the game’s online aspect have kept the game’s community thriving, even though they are still waiting for a PS5 release.
Interestingly, right behind GTA 5, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War outpaced the newer release in the franchise, Vanguard. Unsurprisingly, the ever-popular Minecraft slotted in at third as it too does not have a PS5 version.
The new PS5 saw NBA 2K22 dominate its charts, followed by Call of Duty: Vanguard and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The Spider-Man game may have seen a spike in downloads thanks to the popularity of the newest Spider-Man movie.
As for PSVR, Beat Saber still reigns supreme, beating out other VR titles such as Job Simulator, Superhot VR and GORN.
Finally, the top free-to-play games should come as no surprise. PlayStation’s list includes Fortnite, Call of Duty: Warzone and Rocket League. These titles have dominated the free-to-play online competitive market for some time. And it does not look like they are going anywhere anytime soon.
