But with a console filled with potentially hundreds of digital-only titles, it’s easy to lose track of which games you have. Gamers need a logical way to sort their titles to avoid getting lost in the backlog forever. That’s where GameList comes in.

What are Gamelists on PS5?

GameList on the PS5 allows you to create folders to help you easily sort your games. These folders are completely customizable, so you can sort your games just the way you want.

You can rename your connectors and sort your titles by genre, year of release, or even what you want to play next. You can have up to 15 gamelists, each with up to 100 games.

By default, your games will display on your PS5 in a list format. Sorting your games into folders like this saves you having to scroll through your entire library to find the same game. And the less time you spend finding your games, the more time you get to play them!

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

how to make a gamelist

The first thing you should do before creating your own playlists to organize your PS5 is to make sure your console is up to date. The Gamelist feature was not available at launch, so if you haven’t updated your console since it was introduced, you may not be able to use the feature.

To update your PS5, press the PS button on your controller and scroll down to Download/Upload. If an update is available, select it and follow the on-screen prompts to install the update.

You will also need to update your PS5 DualSense controller from time to time. You can do this from the console or your PC. Check out our guide on how to update your PS5 controller from your PC to learn how.

Once your PS5 has been successfully updated, follow the instructions below to curate your gamelist.

Your gamelists will appear at the top of the screen when viewing your collection, so you can access them easily.

How to add and remove games from the Gamelist

PS5 Gamelists were created with customization in mind. So making any changes to your gamelist, like adding or removing games, for example, is very easy. If you want to add a game to your folder, open the gamelist you want to edit and select the + icon on the left.

To remove a game, hover over it, press the Burger button on your controller, and select Remove from Gamelist. You can also launch or delete games from this menu.

Creating a gamelist to organize your PS5 is something you should consider as soon as you buy your new console. But that’s not the only thing you should be looking for on day one. Check out our guide for the first thing you should do when you get your PS5.

Clear the clutter by organizing your PS5

Replacing the cover on your PS5 can be a daunting experience. A PS5 is hard enough to find in the first place, so breaking your beloved console while removing or replacing the cover is a legitimate fear for many people.

Thankfully, the PS5 faceplate is specially designed to be removed, and the exercise becomes relatively easy once you get over the mental hurdle of deflating your favorite machine. This guide will guide you through replacing the cover without damaging your PS5 in the process.
