Football is the most popular sport in the world which is why it’s no surprise to find FIFA 22 at the top of our list. Using a new technology called HyperMotion, FIFA 22 harnesses all of the PS5’s capabilities. HyperMotion takes real-time movement data of real players and integrates it into the gameplay.

While this edition focuses heavily on FIFA Ultimate Team, the game offers a lot to those who prefer traditional modes like Career Mode and FUT Heroes which lets gamers build custom rosters that feature the sport’s most beloved players.

MLB The Show 22

We’re cheating a bit here as MLB The Show 22 is still a month away from its release as of this writing. The MLB The Show franchise has been one of the most popular since hitting the market in 2006. While the technology and features have evolved over the years, the basic gameplay has remained the same. MLB The Show 22 will allow 1-4 players to play the same game while up to 8 online players can compete at once provided they have subscribed to PS Plus. 

Baseball fans who prefer the single-player action without having to fork out money to access the many extras will still have a range of modes to enjoy including Road To The Show.
