You get a lot with a PlayStation Plus subscription, even the entry-level PS Plus Essential membership.

If you pay more for a PS Plus Extra or Premium tier, you still get the free monthly games and online access, but you also get an ever increasing library of modern and classic titles to download or stream and enjoy (depending on the membership plan).
