How to Use Game Lists to Keep PS5 Games Organized

The ease and convenience of downloading games digitally has led to a massive increase in digital game sales over the past few years. And with the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition not including a disc drive at all, those sales will continue to rise.

But with a console filled with hundreds of digital-only titles, it’s easy to lose track of the games you have. Players need a logical way to sort their titles to avoid losing them in the backlog forever. This is where game listings come in.

What are the lists of games on PS5?

Game listings on PS5 allow you to create folders to help you easily sort your games. These folders are fully customizable, so you can sort your games however you like.

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 will be displayed in a list format on your PS5. Categorizing your games in folders like this prevents you from scrolling through your entire library to find a single game. And the less time you spend searching for your games, the more time you have to play them!

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