1. Nier: Automata
When it comes to video games, no series will do much to challenge your attention than that of the futuristic action-adventure game Nier. Set in a post-apocalyptic environment, players take on the role of a female commando who is tasked with stopping a monstrous robot from taking over the world. Aiming to be more than a visual novel, Nier: Automata offers a thrilling and war-themed hack-and-slash adventure that will keep you on your toes.
2. Final Fantasy 7 Remake
Midgard has been given a facelift in this fresh version. It’s much better, with a detailed and immersive exploration of a steampunk city. Players can immerse themselves in the city’s diverse group of characters by spending more time with them in “Remake” (subsequent releases will cover the remainder of the original story). Square Enix can flesh out the characters’ personalities and give them more dimension owing to more screentime. It’s also got a stellar combat system, a blend of real-time and turn-based systems that is distinct and addictive to master.
3. Resident Evil 2
The original Resident Evil is one of the most enduring video game series of all time, and the sequel was even better. In this 2019 horror game, players take on the role of characters to discover that the island of Raccoon City is under attack. The city is crawling with zombies, and to make matters worse, Raccoon City has become a war zone. The player’s job is to save as many people as possible and try to avoid being captured by zombies. The game’s survival horror elements feel fresh and exciting thanks to the implementation of the “Zombie Mode”. The game received positive reviews and sold extremely well, establishing the series as one of the best in the business.
4. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Even if you are not a big fan of the series, you will most certainly enjoy The Phantom Pain, if for no other reason than the sheer amount of awesome stuff that it has to offer. It’s tough to deny that the moment-to-moment gameplay is absolutely fantastic. A variety of powerful weapons, vehicles, gadgets, and AI companions are at your disposal in The Phantom Pain, as well as rock-solid movement and a huge, sometimes literal, world to explore. If you are careful and sneaky, the game doesn’t punish you too harshly if you get rowdy and messy, but stealthy tactical gameplay is rewarded strongly. If the story seems unclear, don’t be heartbroken. It’s part of the fun.
5. Ghost of Tsushima
There are plenty of moving narratives and striking visuals in Sucker Punch’s latest game, making exploring its vast 13th-century Japan a delight. Its cast, including the English and Japanese languages, does an excellent job bringing Ghost’s complicated tale of honor and loss to life, both in its 30+ hour main campaign and all the side quests that succinctly reflect them.
