PS Now Games to Play This Week: January 17, 2022

At the time of writing, PS Now has over 700 games for subscribers to access. That is a lot of titles, especially if you’re trying to filter through them to find the best PS Now games to play. What’s more, new games get added (and removed) every single month, making it tough to track. Thankfully, PlayStation LifeStyle is here with some best game highlights, as well as a list of the new additions. Here are the PS Now games to play for the week of January 17, 2022.

Best PS Now Games to Play This Week (Jan 17 Edition)

These are our picks for the best PS Now games to play for the week starting January 17:

Grand Theft Auto III: The Definitive Edition

While it might not have launched in the best state, the “Definitive Editions” of the Grand Theft Auto trilogy have been updated recently. GTA3 is the one Definitive Edition game featured in the current PS Now line-up. This is a remaster of the title that set the franchise on the path to big success. It has guns, swearing, and a whole host of other mature content just waiting to be uncorked.

Grand Theft Auto III: The Definitive Edition might not have earned your purchase at launch, but this blast from the past is surely worth a look as part of your PS Now subscription. It’s set to leave PS Now by the end of the month, so try it before it’s gone. PSLS’s sister site reviewed the game here.

Final Fantasy X|X-2

Final Fantasy X is one of the best FF games out there and the X-2 follow-up is a must-play, too. Fantastic characters populate an epic story full of twists and turns, combined with brilliant turn-based combat. If you’re not a fan of the more recent games’ real-time gameplay, then going back to FFX is a wise move. This pair of RPGs is something I personally regularly revisit, as they are just so good. Check out the 9/10 PlayStation LifeStyle review for more positive thoughts.
