Use game lists to keep your PS5 games organized

The ease and convenience of digital game downloading has led to a huge increase in digital game sales in recent years. And with the release of the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, which do not include a disk drive at all, these sales will only continue to grow.


But with a console filled with potentially hundreds of digital titles, it’s easy to lose track of what games you have. Gamers need a logical way to sort their titles to avoid getting lost in the backlog forever. This is where game lists come in.


What are game lists on the PS5?

Game lists on PS5 allow you to create folders to easily sort your games. These folders are fully customizable so you can sort your games the way you want.

You can rename your game lists to sort your titles by genre, release year, or even what you want to play next. You can have up to 15 game lists, each containing up to 100 games.

By default, your games are displayed in a list format on your PS5. By sorting your games into folders like this, you don’t have to scroll through your entire library to find a single game. And the less time you spend looking for your games, the more time you’ll have playing them!

So if you want to create game lists to keep your PS5 games organized, here’s how to do it.
