I have always wanted to compile a list of the best PS4 games for girls since my sister and niece often want to play games that are made for them. After hundreds of hours’ worth of gaming experience, I can safely say that I found the best games for girls that you can play in 2023.
They’re all great games with amazing graphics and compelling gameplay, but it’s more about pressing all the right buttons with you. So, be sure to make it to the end of the list, and you may find more than a few games to book your schedule with!
Kena: Bridge of Spirits
Game Type: Indie game, Action-adventure game, Platform game
Available On: Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4/5
Kena is an underrated game that feels – and looks – like a Pixar movie. The artstyle is extremely cute which makes everything in the game feel fantastic. Plus, Kena features a wonderful photomode that gives you many customization options for all characters in the scene.
The gameplay is also quite fun and will keep you entertained for a long time. While the core mechanics are similar to Dark Souls (despite how much I hate saying that), the overall difficulty is quite low. My niece loved playing Kena as she not only loves Pixar but the game is perfect for a casual gamer as well.
Life is Strange Remastered
Game Type: Graphic adventure game, Action-adventure game
Available On: PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows
Regardless of which “Life is Strange” you play, you’ll have a great time. However, the first one will always have a special place in my heart. Life is Strange Remastered has both the original game and its DLC. This is the definitive way to experience Max and Chole’s journey.
There will be many choices that will determine the outcome of Arcadia Bay, so, make sure that you choose wisely. Whether you are a casual or hardcore gamer, you’ll have a blast playing this unforgettable game.
Game Type: Single-player video game, Multiplayer video game, Survival
Available On: Microsoft Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android, Xbox 360/One, PlayStation 3/4
Minecraft is a game that most people will have heard of despite not being a gaming fan. This is the perfect game to play if you want to get into gaming. Even if you love playing games, Minecraft can be extremely fun to play.
If you are someone who loves to show off their creativity, you can play the creative mode to let your imagination run wild. Minecraft is a game where you can play tons of modes and explore them for hundreds of hours without getting bored.
Game Type: Simulation, Indie, Casual
Available On: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One, Series S|X, and Microsoft Windows
I cannot tell you how relaxing yet stressful Overcooked is. You can play with multiple people and you’ll have to fulfill the orders of your customers. Each level has a different layout where you will have to solve small puzzles to get the ingredients.
I mostly play it with my sister and niece – and despite having a fun time, it can be quite jarring as well. The game is quite fun as you’ll quickly learn the importance of teamwork.
Game Type: Musical Game, Fitness Game
Available On: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Series S
Just Dance can get quite physical as you will have to physically dance and match the prompts on your screen. While you can play Just Dance from any year, I’m going to mention the latest one – Just Dance 2023. There are hit songs from all genres of music so you’ll certainly find some that you enjoy.
Whether you play it with a friend, alone, or online, you will have a great time dancing to the beat of the music.
The Sims 4
Game Type: Single-player video game, Life Simulation game
Available On: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, Mac
Whether I’m talking about the best games for girls or the best games in general, I’ll include The Sims 4 on my list. It is a life-simulation game that has you controlling your character(s) throughout different stages of life. You can either choose an existing Sims or create your own. I cannot tell you how much time I’ve spent creating my Sims.
Thanks to the plethora of updates (game packs, expansions, and much more), the game has tons of content. It will take you hundreds of hours to explore everything the game has to offer. Plus, you can take your Sims in any direction you want – in their career or life. The world truly is your oyster, so, make sure that you take your time and enjoy what the game has to offer.
Game Type: Multiplayer video game
Available On: PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, Xbox Series X and Series S
Overwatch 2 is a competitive online shooter that has some of the coolest characters I’ve seen in games. The community is crazy about the game and they create some of the best fanart as well. Whether you are a casual gamer or want to climb the ranked ladder, Overwatch 2 is perfect for all types of players.
My sister does not usually play online shooters since she isn’t a big fan of them. However, Overwatch 2 is the only game she’ll play and have a great time. There are so many characters to choose from, and you’ll find your favorite in no time. Plus, Overwatch 2 has various game modes as well which keeps everything fresh.
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout
Game Type: Battle royale game, Platform game
Available On: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows, Xbox Series X and Series S
Moving on to another online game – Fall Guys. While it isn’t nearly as popular as it once was, Fall Guys is still pretty fun, especially if you play with your friends. Plus, it is ideal for a casual gamer as well, and I can attest that since my niece won’t stop playing it whenever she gets the chance.
If you’ve seen the show Wipeout, you’ll be quite familiar with the premise of this game. For those who haven’t, your main purpose is to reach the finish or survive (depending on what minigame you’re playing).
Thanks to a wide variety of games, you’ll have a blast playing the game alone or with your friends.
It Takes Two
Game Type: Platform game, Puzzle Video Game, Action-adventure game
Available On: PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One/Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and Microsoft Windows
It Takes Two has a special place in my heart simply because I adore couch co-op games. I played this with my sister and we had a wonderful time – in fact, it is one of her favorite games now! You will have to work with your co-op partner to solve puzzles, defeat enemies, and experience this fun adventure.
It is a perfect game for girls who don’t like hardcore games or just want to have a relaxed and fun time with their co-op partner.
Game Type: TPP, Action-Adventure/Indie
Available On: Windows, Mac, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4/5, and Xbox One/Series X|S
Finally, let’s talk about Hades. While it was an underrated game in the past, it feels nice knowing more and more players know about Hades. My niece – despite not being a hardcore gamer – loves playing Hades due to its artstyle and fast-paced gameplay.
The best part is that you can play it more than once and never get tired of it. In fact, the game encourages you to play again if you want to get the true ending.
You’ve probably locked in on a few of the best PS4 games for girls by now and may understand why we chose to rank them in no specific order. Because at the end of the day, it’s the adventure you choose to take.
