Recommend some outer space games

One of my most favorite albums, We Will Always Love You by The Avalanches, is about to turn 1 years old in December. The album uses outer space as one of its recurring themes throughout. To commemorate such a stellar album I wanted to stack as many space themed/named games consecutively as possible. So far I have:

 

The Turing Test
Deliver Us the Moon
Planet of the Eyes
A Hat in Time (very loosely based on space since Hat Kid has a space ship)
Zone of the Enders 2
Outer Wilds
Risk of Rain 2 (will also be platinum milestone #225)
Hyper Sentinel
Dead Space
Jupiter and Mars (literally here for namesake alone. I know it's a dolphin swimming game)
Space Channel 5 VR
Citizens Unite: Earth x Space
Star Ocean: First Departure R
Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime
Alien: Isolation
Holy Potatoes! We're in Space?!

Space Otter Charlie

Infinifactory

Katamari Damacy Reroll

 

Here's some games I've already completed unfortunately so they can't join the club:

Cosmic Star Heroine

Galaga

Risk of Rain 1

Zone of the Enders 1

Astro Bot Rescue Mission (don't have a PS5 so I can't do that one either)

Rogue Galaxy

Katamari Forever

 

I also have no interest in games like Mass Effect, The Outer Worlds, or Destiny. I'm also not going to play other Dead Space or Star Ocean games at the moment for various reasons. Other recommendations?

Underrated gem that I really love. It's pretty slow and basic, but it's got an interesting premise & story. A fairly easy platinum too by the looks of it (I played it on PC).

ADR1FT is about as spaced-out as they come. It's essentially a walking (floating?) simulator - and not necessarily the best of them - but the setting is frequently breathtaking. It takes place on and outside a damaged space station above Earth.

Rebel Galaxy and Rebel Galaxy Outlaw. Great space ship combat games, you can be a space pirate, a mercenary, or a merchant. Killer soundtrack too.

Prey. After playing it, it became one of my favorite sci fi games I have ever played.

Hmm. I'm more a fantasy guy than science fiction but I got some recommendations you haven't already mentioned. 

 

Prey, it was made by Arkane IIRC, the folks who did Dishonored. It's got some cool powers and an awesome GLOO gun that is so versatile. Takes place in a space station orbiting Earth, where Telstar - the company your work for does experiments.

 

Observation has no platinum trophy but it was an interesting game. You play an AI on a space station and something has happened. There is one human you work with to try and figure out what happened. I don't want to spoil it so I will leave it at that.

- 13 Sentinels Aegis Rim: My number one recommendation. I can´t say anything about this game without spoiling things (even the recommendation in a list of space themed games can be considered a spoiler), but the game is one of the best PS4 games in my opinion and deserved to be played by as much people as possible.

 

- Astebreed

- Assault Gunners

- Elea

- Valfaris

- Konami Arcade Classics Anniversary Collection

- Journey to the Savage Planet

- Planet Alpha

- Tons of Shoot ém Ups from the Arcade Archives series (for example: Zed Blade, Pulstar)

- Red Faction 1/Guerilla

- Mothergunship

- The Long Journey Home

- R-Type Final 2

- Her Majesty´s Spiffing

 A lot of good ones I would have said were either listed (Prey) or are already owned (Alien Isolation). That leaves an eligible title, one probably no-one else will say. 

 

Sonic Colors: Ultimate (preferably on Xbox Series X, with Switch being the dead last option).

 

Normally wouldn't recommend a Sonic game to a non-fan of the series or one with little context of the series after the genesis era titles, in general, but as an outer-space-themed experience this game is a must-have. The environments, backgrounds, level design, and music are all memorable and high quality.

The version that was unobtainable was delisted from the store before the enhanced edition came out to replace it

 

Infinite Space is a pretty good one

Elite Dangerous

I was just going to suggest this. If you want a great space simulator with great physics and tons of logistical planning this is the one for you. Just expect a decent, albeit not too annoying grind for better ships.

Aven Colony, it's still sitting in my backlog but I once saw a PlayStation access stream for it and it looked great.
