17 Great Games Like Backbone Games on PlayStation 5

The PlayStation 5 is the follow up to the PlayStation 4, released in 2019. It moves the system to a super fast solid state drive as well as improved visuals and sound. There's a focus on the photo-realistic ray-tracing feature in many games. You can play all PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR games on the new system.

You can use the DualShock 4 controllers from the PlayStation 4 to play those games on PlayStation 5, but you need to use the new DualSense controller to play PlayStation 5 games. This adds a feature that offers resistance on the trigger buttons to emulate in-game actions like guns jamming.

In addition to the similar games listed above, which have been linked to this game specifically in the database, you may find games with a similar theme to Backbone in the following lists:

Branching Stories With Multiple Endings

All games offer you agency. You can win or lose. You can complete them or stop at any time. But there are some games that offer a story that genuinely branches. Where you end up will be different from other players. This not only makes your actions really matter but also gives you a reason to play them again.

Setting aside games that evolve through simulation, or games where once you die it's game over, these branching narrative games tell a story that ends in a certain way because of the choices you made.
 

Solve a Mystery

Like a good crime drama or whodunnit novel, solving mysteries and puzzles is a good way to engage in a story. However, rather than just watching these mysteries while someone else does the heavy lifting, these video games place you firmly in the role of the detective. Gathering statements, sifting evidence and making intelligent leaps of deduction requires care and attention. These investigations makes these games slower than others, but it’s worth the effort each time you find the correct conclusion and move the story on.

These games present you with a mysterious scenario to be solved. Whether with direct puzzles, locations to investigate or crime scenarios to deduce, they offer a unique, first-hand sleuthing challenge.
