Top Games for the PS4 Pro
With the release of the Playstation 4 Pro, 4K gaming has officially arrived for console gamers. But since the Playstation 4 already has a huge library of games being the Playstation 4 Pro a mid cycle console, not all games can benefit from the Pro's new power. Add to that, even games that have been patched to support 4K gaming, most of them simply upscale to that resolution and do not provide true 4K resolution. Simply playing any game on a Playstation 4 Pro will not give you 4K gaming since the game has to be patched first and then correctly optimized to support the increase in pixels. To help you choose which games would be best best for 4K gaming, here's a list of games that take full advantage of the PS4 Pro.
inFAMOUS: Second Son/First Light - the first great exclusive. InFamous was one the first exclusives for the PS4 and was considered a "must buy" in its release. But now with PS4 Pro and 4K gaming, inFamous is still a "must buy" because not only does it support 4K resolution, it also provides 60 frames per second gameplay giving gamers more pixels and buttery smooth gameplay at the same time. If you're a fan of superheroes and would like to experience being one in a huge city, this is the game to get.
The Last of Us Remastered - the last-gen classic. Considered as one the greatest games of the last generation, The Last of Us: Remastered is still one the best looking games even for the current generation.

Regardless of which option to choose, players will be treated with beautiful graphics and a gripping story to boot.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor - open world Middle Earth. Shadow of Mordor is one of the few games that got its Lord of the Rings licensing right.

On the PS4 Pro, players have the option of playing in 4k resolution and at a super sampled 1080p mode.
