First on our Playstation 4 games for girls list we find Overwatch, which is the kind of game that some of you parents may not think is something your daughter would be into.

Overwatch is rated T for teen and there is some comical violence and some mild bad language, nothing worse than a PG13 movie.

Kingdom Hearts 2.8 is actually a remake of a game called Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance. But this package also contains a Kingdom Hearts movie and an extra playable chapter! You get a ton of content in this game and it is suitable for children as young as 8. But please take note that while this may have Disney characters in it, Kingdom Hearts is actually quite a challenging game.

With this kind of gameplay, Gravity Rush 2 is a good mix of puzzle and action so it is something that many kids are going to really enjoy.

Makes for a game that your child will want to keep on playing.
Gravity Rush 2 is rated T for Teen and we would suggest that it is ideal for kids who are 12 and older and who want something a little more challenging and action packed.

Toggle, Oddsock and Swoop all of whom have a ton of customization options as well as their own abilities.
Little Big Planet 3 is best described as a platform game and there is a fun story for your child to play through, which they will get a lot of fun out of. But the real fun of Little Big Planet 3 comes from making your own games! That is right, Little Big Planet 3 allows you to make your own levels, with your own story, characters and gameplay elements.
Your child can then upload this level to the Playstation Network and have their friends play it! We are sure that your child will get a lot of joy from making a level then getting you to play it.

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst
One of the things that makes Mirror’s Edge Catalyst one of the best Playstation 4 games for girls is the main character of the game, Faith Connors. Faith Connors is one of the most kick butt and coolest female videogame characters of all time. It is awesome that your daughter can play as such a strong female character.
The story of this game is set in a future where mankind could not be any more on the grid and Faith is a runner, a person who wants to be off the grid and free her city from the clutches of this evil corporation who is keeping watch of the whole city.
The story of the game is very engaging and it is something that is really going to hook your child. The gameplay is all in first person, but Faith does not shoot people. She instead uses her incredible athletic ability to run around the city and beat up the bad guys!
The game has a lot of action, but there is no over-the-top violence or bad language. As a matter of fact the game is only rated T for Teen which is not bad at all. Kids 12 and up will be fine with this game.
Dragon Quest Builders
Dragon Quest Builders is a really fun, Playstation 4 exclusive game that is perfect if your daughter does not just like video games but also has a bit of a creative streak inside her. The story of the game is set in the fantasy world of Alefguard.
Like other Dragon Quest games, there is a lot of fighting monsters here. But what this game is really about is building, guess the name of the game kind of gave it away! You will need to build houses, then towns, and all the way to full-on cities! There really is no limit to the things you can build, but be warned to get some of the materials to build the more “exotic” items. You will have to go on a huge adventure.
This is just a really cool and fun game, a game that your child really is going to have a lot of fun with. If you have a daughter who likes creative-based games like Minecraft and Terraria then Dragon Quest Builders is going to be a game they have a lot of fun with.
