So, I'm pretty new to the PS4.  I've been picking up a lot of hits but a lot of them seem to be shooters.  I don't particularly like this genre and was wondering if I could get your opinions on the best games in other genres.  I like a well rounded collection.

Platformer:
Fighting Game:
Survival Horror:
RPG:
Tactical RPG:
Sim:
Strategy:
Racing:
Sports:
Puzzle:

Not sure if it counts as a platformer, but I would highly recommend Inside (sequel to Limbo). Great game, although, digital only.

Thomas was Alone is a great puzzle game, and one of the "cheaper" Limited Run Games to buy second hand.

Maybe, just once, someone will call me "sir" without adding, "you're making a scene."

My choices are a little different than the average genres. I left out a few games too. Diablo III is a great game on the system as is Dragon Age: Inquisition and Shadow of Mordor.

Nice.  Glad you left out the ones you did   I've got them all.  Currently playing through diablo 3 with the wifelike lady (so addicting just slaughtering stuff and seeing what new gear you get), I started playing dragon age and it was definitely enjoyable but I got distracted by other games.  Shadow of mordor was great too I really liked how it made you feel like a bad ass once you figured out the combat.
 

Ill have to check out some of your recommendations once prices drop a bit.  I'm a big dragon quest fan and I've wondered if those random side games were worth it.  Can't wait for that next main series entry
