5 Best Hunting Games on PlayStation



Hunting games allow players to explore worlds and interact with wildlife. These worlds are often rather finely detailed; the same goes for the flora and fauna in these games. This is great, as it offers not only a cost-effective hunting simulation. But also, the gameplay loop of these games can be pretty fun. So if you enjoy hunting games or are new to the genre, please enjoy our picks for the 5 Best Hunting Games on PlayStation

5. Red Dead Redemption 2

Today, we begin our list of the best hunting games on PlayStation with a modern masterpiece. Red Dead Redemption 2 was the highly-anticipated sequel to the much-beloved Red Dead Redemption. The game features hunting as a way to make money, and while it certainly isn't the most feature-rich entry on this list, in terms of hunting, what is on offer is excellent. Players are able to hunt in order to obtain resources and skins that players can sell for profit.

This makes hunting a viable option in terms of moneymaking in the early game. However, there are specific legendary hunts that players can undertake, which will be considerably more challenging and, thus, more rewarding. This is great, as it offers players who aren't quite familiar with the game's hunting mechanics ways to learn and then, ultimately, a way of obtaining these legendary items that can be used in crafting. To close, why it isn't the core focus of the game, Red Dead Redemption 2‘s hunting mechanics are a great way to get into the hunting game genre.

4. Big Buck Hunter

Next up on our list of the best hunting games available for PlayStation owners we have Big Buck Hunter. While it might not have the sprawling narrative that Red Dead Redemption 2 has, it offers great hunting gameplay. This is perfect for those who want to get into the hunting game genre but aren't exactly sure where to start. This is a game that places more of a heavy emphasis on the simulation aspects of the game. This ultimately means players will have many more factors they will need to consider when hunting.

These factors include things such as the distance from the target and much more. Doing this will allow the player to get a much cleaner show at the bucks on the screen. However, players should be careful, as injuring a doe will result in the player's round being ended. So if you are looking for a casual-friendly hunting experience on PlayStation, then this is a great choice. All in all, Big Buck Hunter brings the fun and nostalgia of the classic arcade game into players' homes for them to enjoy.

3. Hunting Simulator 2

Switching things up quite a bit, we have Hunting Simulator 2Hunting Simulator 2 is a game that, much like the name would imply, attempt to simulate hunting as realistically as possible. It combines quite a few gameplay mechanics in order to pull this off. Each of these mechanics pulls its own share of the weight in terms of making the experience realistic.  Players will be able to traverse many different wildlife locations. These include places such as Colorado and parts of Europe.

This is great, as it allows players to have quite a bit of variety within their experience as they go throughout the game. There is quite a plethora of animals to hunt as well. As the game features thirty-three creatures for the players to learn the habits of and track down. This opens the game up quite a bit and keeps the gameplay from getting stale too quickly. The behaviors of these animals are also recreated in a great way. So if you are looking for a game that hopes to simulate hunting, then this is a great title to pick up. To close, Hunting Simulator 2 is one of the best hunting games available for PlayStation owners.

2. Way of the Hunter

That isn't all this game has to offer either, as the AI behaviors of the animals are all very faithfully recreated. This is wonderful and really does a fantastic job of immersing the player within its world. There is a great number of weapons, clothes, and much more players will have access to as well.

1. The Hunter: Call of the Wild

Now, for our final entry, we have The Hunter: Call of the Wild. Much like other titles on this list, this game seeks to recreate the hunting experience as accurately as possible. To this end, the game has a ton of systems that all work in tandem in order to make this a reality. The animal AI in the game is top-notch, and they will behave much like they would in real-world situations. This is great, as it gives the player a sense of immersion in the game. That isn't all this game has to offer, though, far from it.

In terms of graphical fidelity, this game is simply stunning. Being able to depict animal muscle and fiber movements accurately and wonderfully. It is the attention to these small details that really set this game apart. However, the game isn't as daunting as its systems would lead you to believe.
