Just add all of them to your library. You don't have to download all of them. That way you'll have them if they ever decide to discontinue the election.

I can only stream them. No option to download. I put others on wishlist.

Doesn't sound like you're in the right area. I have some of them downloaded on my PS5 currently.

I was on console. I went to PS Plus Premium. Games catalog, saw all games, but only available to stream.

Watch that video. You're in the wrong section.

Re: Ratchet and Clank (PS4, 2016)

I was confusing the “collection” vs the rest of the library. Like the PS3 R&C games are stream only. That was my confusion. I didn’t see just the PS collection tab.

There's only 20 games in the collection. Make sure you have all of them added to your library. Also, go ahead and add the three free games this month to your library Mass Effect Collection, Bio Mutant, and Knockout.

Doesn't hurt to go ahead and add them to your PlayStation library for free.

Played a few hours of this today. Gorgeous game. I can only imagine what Rift Apart looks like. But, I felt like some platforming silliness and this brings it in spades. Having a lot of fun.

Re: Ratchet and Clank (PS4, 2016)

Is Rift Apart like the 2016 version dialed up? Because I’m loving the reboot or whatever.

Are the older versions worth it if you’re not much into retro gaming?

It's 100x better. Seriously. It's longer, with new mechanics, a much better story, new characters. It's amazing.

Worth the literally nothing it will cost you to play them? Sure. They're all fun and actually look pretty good, given their age. You can play them in any order as well.

How have you not added all the PS Plus collection games to your library already?

Most, not all. And, the PS 3 games can only stream.

All the PS3 games are fantastic. We were spoiled that gen with R&C games.

Rift Apart was an excellent title to me, and I've always been lukewarm on the series.

I just finished this and I thought it was a really fun game. I'll start Rift Apart sometime in 2023 and I'm really excited to play it after reading all the comments about it.

Not very long. I went back and found every collectible though. My PlayStation says 5 hours, but I don't think that's correct. Maybe 12 hours.

Re: Ratchet and Clank (PS4, 2016)

Wow. That’s short. But at the rate I go, it’ll take me months. I think I’ve completed all quests on 3, maybe 4 planets. What is there 6 or 5? Do you just complete the missions on each planet and that’s it? Or do more missions on already visited planets open up?

HowLongToBeat pegs it at 10 hours the first time through, if you're not chasing the platinum, so your estimate is in the ballpark for sure.

But once you've beaten it and maxed out your weapons, replays are absurdly fast. Seriously in the 3 hour range. It's probably my most-replayed game of the past decade: 5 playthroughs overall.

Re: Ratchet and Clank (PS4, 2016)

Sounds like a winner. As I said, I’m having an absolute blast and wish I had more time to play. That’s why I was surprised God of War was my most played game. I’d thought for sure R&C, bc that’s all I’ve been playing, when I can. Even says 14% completed vs. 7% for GoW. Just checked and only 4 hours on R&C vs. 10 hours of GoW. Huh. Go figure.

I may have to go back and try for the Platinum Trophy then. I picked up the ryno weapon before the final bosses and I mowed through them. I can probably use it to get through the game quickly especially since I won't be chasing down every collectible.
