The Best PS4 Arcade GamesGAMING
Top 5 PS4 Arcade Games
The PS4 may be among the most advanced in gaming consoles, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it for a classic arcade experience. Whether you’re into classic arcade games or fighting games, there are plenty of PlayStation 4 arcade game options available, and with a selection of PS4 arcade sticks on the market, you can play them almost like you would an original classic game.
This list includes some of the best arcade titles currently available for the PlayStation 4 (and some for the PS3 as well).
Arcade Games Ms Pacman
Experience the original 1981 MS Pacman, complete with power pellets, pink bows, and four lonely ghosts just looking for a good time. For $3.99, it’s hard to beat the slightly digitally remastered Ms. Packman, or the hours of fun and frustration it promises as you try, and fail, to score a perfect game (which is virtually impossible).
It’s hard to beat the thrill of the original pinball games, and Pinball Arcade for PS4 combines all of the excitement of your favorite pinball arcade games with the PS4. But wait, it gets better. This cover already sounds suspiciously like an advertisement, but Pinball Arcade is free. The game also adds new pinball arcades every week, so you can play classic layouts like Star Trek, Terminator, Attack from Mars, Creature from the Black Lagoon, and many more.
Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection
For just $9.99 you can have the original Mortal Kombat arcade collection, including Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat II, and Mortal Kombat 3, all with enhanced graphics, online play, and worldwide leaderboards and trophies. While it doesn’t compare in gameplay to X, it’s certainly something for those who are nostalgic, or who want to experience the true origin of one of the world’s best and most resilient fighting games.
PS4 Arcade Game Series 3-In-1 Pack
Featuring 3 of the most famous arcade games of all time, it is difficult to resist the PS4 Arcade Game Series 3-In-1 pack. The set costs just $7.99 and includes Pac-Man, Galaga, and Dig Dug, so you can waste (we mean spend) literally hundreds of hours chasing dots on screens, burrowing your way past ferocious foes, and defending the galaxy. What, you want more? This version allows Pac-Man fans to play with original game features, like the Round 256 Bug.
Capcom Arcade Cabinet
For $29.99 + a Free Download of another title (confusingly, also titled Capcom Arcade Cabinet, download the free one first and then make your purchase) you get all of the 17 available original Capcom arcade titles for PS4. What’s in it? Black Tiger for starters.
This selection of PS4 arcade games is available on the PlayStation Store, and sometimes on Amazon, although the disc rather than the digital downloads of the games will not reflect the quoted prices. So, what are you waiting for, rev up your arcade sticks, buy a milkshake, stack your quarters on the console and have a blast.
