Number 10 – Need for Speed Rivals
One of the hottest racing game franchise by electronic arts, Need for speed is back with Rivals which dropped in November 2013 was one of the first few racing games to be released on the Playstation 4 console. The game remains hot till date and at the price point it is offered, there is nothing more a gamer could ask for. Admittedly, the game does lack content, however, the gameplay is gripping, fast-paced and adrenaline inducing.
Also, racing mechanics is on point, the cops chase are thrilling and the graphics are amazing. There are about 35-40 cars to choose from ranging from Aston Martin, Ferrari, Jaguar, BMW etc. Plus you get another set of cars exclusively to be driven as a cop. In addition to that, there are two game modes to choose i.e Racer or the County cop. Included in this game, is a bit of story mode for both the type of gameplay which is a great value addition. There are amazing soundtracks and landscapes to explore. I believe NFS is packed tonnes of fun and value at the price point it is available on Amazon. Number 10 on the list of top 10 ps4 games under 2000rs.
Number 9 – Telltale Series – Batman
Telltale as a game developer are famously known for creating compelling story driven games. They have mastered the art of storytelling and incorporating the same with excellent dialogue delivery in games. Tales of borderland was a masterpiece, so was the walking dead. They have used the same success formula while developing Batman. Batman was released in August 2016 across PS4, Xbox One , Android, OS and Windows.
The game is like the previous ensemble, which is point and click, quick-time events and dialogue selection. There are multiple layers to the game due to choices you make. The characters in the game are well developed from Commissioner Gordon to Cat-woman and many more. Gotham city looks beautifully drawn and the characters are portrayed in comic-styled fashion.
Batman has several episodes to it, currently, as I write this articles there are five playable episodes. Every episode is solid, particularly the first which has received a fair share of acclaim and recognition. It is an adventure game, predominantly point and click, however, there are certain fight scenes where a brutal finishing move can be unleashed to up the hotness factor of the game.
The game scores average because of the lack of content available at the release date, however, there are five episodes to fulfill your itch to play. Do not expect the game to be like Arkham Knight or Arkham Asylum. For anyone who is not familiar with tell-tale games this game is heavily story driven and mostly filled with cinematics, it a movie that you participate in. An experience that makes you live the life of a superhero. Nevertheless, an experience that leaves you wanting for more. As the game retails at this price point, it should definitely be on your game collection list. Number 9 on the list of top 10 ps4 games under Rs 2000.
Number 8 – Dying Light
A fresh spin to one of the most often used theme in the gaming world, Dying light is an open world survival/horror, action, and adventure genre. Created by Techland and published by Warner Bros, Dying light is by far the best zombie game out there. Games like Resident Evil: Bio Hazard have revamped the genre and Dying light has made an early contribution. The open world of dying light is amazing, the gameplay is kickass with a not so strong narrative, Techland manages to keep us entertained merely because of the gameplay.
Apart from the usual treat, there are loads of parkour to partake in, which adds tonnes of fun value to the game. Day and night have a difference, the size and veracity of zombies after sunset gets bigger. Playing at night spooks you with a sudden rush from hordes of zombies and escaping is the only option for survival. To spice up the gameplay, you can play the game with four friends and engage in some serious zombie hunting. Like me, if you aren’t a fan of zombie game, this can be one of the games that may sit in horror genre of your library. Number 8 on the list of top 10 ps4 games under Rs 2000.
Number 7 – Fifa 16
The most adored and popular franchise in the sports game genre is FIFA. Undisputed champion in sports video game stands strong in FIFA 16 which released in September 2015, developed by EA Canada and published by EA sports. Although I have not played much of FIFA, Fifa 16 is my first soccer sports and sticks with me the longest. This game speaks volume in terms of sheer value it delivers.
Firstly, it consists of career mode in which players have a choice to play as a soccer player or a coach. There are skill games which are brought forward from FIFA 14 to elevate the skill level of the gamer in order to make them competitive for e-sports. And lastly, there is a special treat that lets you build an ultimate team in which the gamer can align their favorite players in one team.
There is about every soccer club who play La Liga league and countries that play for the world cup. The graphic is outstanding and fifa is one of the few games that manages to run on stable 60FPS on the playstation 4. Powered by Ignite engine, fifa 16 excels is delivering a realistic graphic with Rain, mist, sun-light as the weather condition. FIfa 16 was introduced to me by my elder brother, and since then I have been playing with him back to back for 4-6hours daily. This game touches on the basics of multiplayer gaming i.e couch co-op which is a rare element in Next gen gaming console. Although, I personally do not have a preference for sports but this game packs the value of a good multiplayer and deserves a spot in your collection. The price makes the game totally worth it.

Number 6 – Battlefield 4
One of the leaders in FPS is available for a price under 1000rs is unbelievable. Developed by EA dice and published by Electronic Arts. Released in October 2013, the game delivers exactly like more recent games deliver on graphic and gameplay. The campaign is compact, packaged with high octane battle filled with typical gun-fire to moving vehicles. Gameplay is 8hours long and if completed entirely then it would take 14 hours. That is still short on comparable standards. As I write this post, there are about 47816 players online playing this game.
Battlefield 4 story is brief and short; however, the real fun lies in multiplayer. It is intense with a gigantic world map, 64 damn players playing the massive multiplayer map and it is nothing less than an addiction once you start playing multiplayer. I have played a few multiplayer first-person shooter, but when it comes to environment destruction, this game takes it to another level.
Destruction is the core of the multiplayer and is unprecedented. You are in great luck as you are purchasing this game on Playstation 4 as 64 player lobby is not available on any last gen console. Battlefield shines when in terms of graphic and the musical score is perfectly suited to the game-style. Battlefield 4 is an ambitious game that delivers gracefully with subtle downshift in single player campaign. Since the lobby is active, this game is worth the investment. Number 6 on the list of top 10 ps4 games under Rs 2000.
Number 5 – Doom
Launched in May 2016, a product from the house of Bethesda Softworks studios, this is a reboot of the original 1993 franchise “Doom.” It is a first person shooter pumped with truckloads of action and gore that is highly satisfying. Doom is played by a ‘slayer’ released in the infected science facility in Mars. The story is simple and the prime focus is on the damn gameplay. Doom is an effing bomb, a huge arsenal of futuristic weapons, frags and a chainsaw to disembowel the monsters.
A list of monsters from small sized ‘Imps’ to humongous ‘Baron of hell’. The mantra of the game is to ace your survival skill in Mars facility and later on Hell. Doom emphasizes on agile movements, non-stop shooting and causing loads of mayhem. Bethesda got the right combination and Doom shines brilliantly with its gore-ish yet addictive gameplay.
The total game time on Doom is about 12-13hours and if played to its minute details, 24 hours what you get. The game has exceptional graphics, detailed environment and photo-realistic monsters. Doom has an amazing vibe to it, the combat and encounters with demons is fast paced, adrenaline inducing and ultimately a satisfaction. Carefully selected soundtrack for every environment and different situations which makes doom a solid ensemble. The multi-player is fast paced has its own upgrade system which is different from the main campaign. Players have a choice to create custom maps which offers freedom to build a map as you choose and host a lobby on it. How cool is that? Phat gamer recommends doom.

Number 4 – Batman Arkham Knight
Batman is a superhero, who can beat every super hero in the comic world is a long ongoing debate. Fans who are for or against Batman, seem to add to the ever growing popularity of this suited superhero with a black battish drape.
A millionaire outlaw who has mastered will power and self-control, a superpower that common folks like us can develop. Batman Arkham Knight is super entertaining and lets the player assume the role of Batman, step in his shoes and see the world as the person behind the mask would see. As Batman, you will witness supporters who aid the caped guardian, and villains who derive pleasure in nullifying his attempts and potentially destroying his core philosophy.
This game has epic moments that set your heart pacing and vouching for Batman to ultimately witness the victory of Good over evil. As you play, you start facing the demons plaguing batman and realize that he more of a human than his outward appearance.

Diverse characters in game provide fresh outlook to every scenario.
There are plenty side quest in form of riddles, camps, murder scene investigations, mind-scientist, Harley quins mischiefs and much more. As you play these side quests, the 16 hours main quest is supplemented with backdrops, filling gaps and enhancing the overall gameplay. This game is more than worth the actual price and you will relish every moment in the game from start to finish. Make sure you add this game to your collection right away.

Number 2 – The last of us
The only game in the list that needs no description. The last of us is has global acclaim and has above 40 perfect 10/10 score on Metacritic. It is developed by Sony in-house team, Naughty dogs who are ridiculously awesome in producing story driven games. The plot is engaging, it puts you right into shoes of the protagonist, inserts a lens to view the world as seen by the character.
This level of depth and immersion makes the player emotionally invested in the game, share the pain, joy, suffering and despair. The last of Us was originally released for Playstation 3, judging by its popularity and fan base, developers created a re-mastered version of the game on Playstation 4. It has vastly improved graphics which runs at 1080P resolution locked at 60FPS. There is a trophy system which is in integrated to Ps4, game has been optimized and configured to react to dual shock 4.
Total game time to complete the campaign is about 16-18hours in various environments such as torn and deserted hospital, waterlogged railway station, snow covered terrains and large urban landscape with fallen bridges which are covered in green lithops and plants that grow on crevices of stones and asphalt. Game like Last of us, although story driven are played multiple times as the journey is enriching and transformative for the characters and players alike. Once you complete the main story, naughty dogs has been generous in offering the ‘left behind’ DLC which is Ellie’s story preceding the main campaign before she met Joel. This game is an absolute must, and at this price point, I suggest you can gift to it anyone or just keep a packed version as a possession.

Number 1 – Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection
The reason that Uncharted tops the list is because of the extreme value for money it offers, a trilogy that gives the maximum bang for your buck.
Uncharted is the biggest and most alluring factor for Playstation. Delivered from the house of Naughty dogs, action/adventure and engagingly story driven uncharted series. This collection is packed with three games from PS4 predecessor. Beware of this series, I haven’t played any of sequel on their respective consoles and when I played the first uncharted, I was instantly hooked. Lead character’s “Nathan Drake” journey becomes my journey, his struggles become mine. Environment and maps in this game are simply breath-taking, it feels like a drug in a good way. I was pulled into its story-line from the start, the characters were directly speaking to me and I couldn’t help but binge play this game till the end.
You can be sure to go out there and purchase the final chapter in the series Uncharted 4 as the game needed that ending. Uncharted is a masterpiece, a gem to be treasured and an experience that you will cherish. I don’t usually play story driven games twice, but Nathan’s journey seem to resonate with me figuratively and I could not hold myself from re-playing this masterpiece again. It has the most uniform rating of 9 from likes of IGN, Trusted Reviews etc. A must play, the phat gamer recommends and a keeper to be stacked in your library. Number 1 on the list of top 10 ps4 games under rs 2000.
As my list comes to an end, I am sure there are many titles that missed the mark especially indie games. Please let me know if you find other lesser priced game that you think should be known to the masses.
