We compiled a list of the best sports video games for PS4 users to enjoy in 2019, ranging from football through to basketball. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the games that managed to make our list.

Madden NFL 19

EA Sports has finally made a comeback into the world of American football. Deciding to introduce two extraordinary features that were inspired by FIFA, including Ultimate Team and Longshot which is a story mode that follows up on The Journey. Most gamers believe that Madden 19 comes equipped with a bigger and better roster over FIFA where you can also upgrade players by yourself. The graphics, animation, and gameplay functionality are the best we’ve seen in the last decade.

NBA 2K19

The NBA 2K19 entry is a massive rival to Madden 19 when it comes to gameplay functionality, graphics, and animation quality. The game also provides a fantastic story mode along with a My Team feature that will have you playing for hours on end. Regardless if you consider yourself a die-hard basketball fan or not. The overall experience is exceptional, and you will struggle to switch the game off once you get started.


The Nintendo Switch has always been light on a classic sports game and remains this way with Windjammers. It’s mostly a modern and sophisticated upgrade to Pong where Streetfighter meets frisbee. It functions perfectly on the Nintendo Switch with two-button controls, pixelated visuals, and trick-shot matches that come to life during online multiplier mode.

MLB 19 The Show

If you can’t get enough of America’s favourite past time, then we highly recommend that you invest in the new MLB The Show 19 video game on PS4. You’ll be able to play with legendary players from the past and couple them with the existing players of today. The overall atmosphere that is portrayed in the game will give you the impression that you are sitting in the crowd and the innovative features that are embedded in the game are mind-blowing.

The game combines Tron and Speedball 2 in a phenomenal multiplayer match where gamers will need to collect power-ups while dodging lasers. It has the power to take you back to the 1980s with the music in the background while transporting you to the future with its incredible gameplay. This is one game that will keep you on the edge of your seat when you play against friends or family.
