I’ve been reviewing video games for years, and I’ve seen hundreds of great ones. But these ten stand out—they’re the best of the best. I’m not saying these are necessarily the best-selling or most popular titles, but they’re my absolute favorites. They all have stories that stay with you long after you put down your controller and turn off your screen. Some have a visual style that is timeless, some will make you laugh until your sides hurt, and others will break your heart. But each one is unforgettable in its own way.
The Last of Us
The Last of Us is an action-adventure survival horror video game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 3. The Last of Us follows Joel, a survivor in a world overrun by a mutated strain of cordyceps virus which turns humans into mindless, murderous creatures. He partners with Ellie, another survivor who happens to be immune to the virus, on a journey to find a resistance group called the Fireflies.
The game was created over four years using all that Naughty Dog learned from their previous games (Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception) and primarily used motion capture technology for realistic animations in cutscenes. The game was released worldwide in June 2013; it received acclaim from critics who praised its graphics, story and characters but some criticized it for being too bleak or similar to other zombie video games at the time such as Dead Rising 3 or Dying Light
Red Dead Redemption
Red Dead Redemption is set in the old west and you play as a cowboy. You can hunt animals, play poker, and do many other things. There are many ways to play this game and it has a great storyline. The graphics are good too! It’s really fun to play this game because of its soundtrack as well but most importantly it’s just really fun!
There’s nothing like a good action-adventure game to keep you on the edge of your seat. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is one of the best of its kind. The story is nothing short of gripping and will leave you wanting more. The gameplay is intense, with some truly spectacular set pieces that keep the action coming hard and fast. If you need to play just one game this year, make sure it’s this one!
This list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning some games from Nintendo, so here we go!
In BioShock Infinite, players assume the role of Booker DeWitt, a former Pinkerton agent hired to rescue Elizabeth from Columbia.
The game is played from a first-person perspective and its world is navigated on foot or by using various vehicles that are scattered throughout Columbia. It features similar gameplay mechanics to BioShock: Infinite is an action-adventure shooter video game set in an alternate history 1912, with mechanical weapons and biotechnology mixing together in a dystopian society. The player controls Booker DeWitt as he travels through the floating air city of Columbia in search for Elizabeth, his companion who was kidnapped under mysterious circumstances by Songbird, a giant mechanical bird creature controlled by Comstock, leader of both Columbia and The Founders’ movement (which seeks to establish American dominance).
Papo & Yo
Papo & Yo is a puzzle platformer game that focuses on the relationship between a boy and his alcoholic father. The boy must escape from his abusive dad, who has locked him into their apartment for years. This is done by solving environmental puzzles that allow you to collect fruit and other items which are then used to make tools or weapons to solve other puzzles, allowing you access to new areas of the map.
The game’s story is particularly interesting because it takes place entirely from the perspective of the child character; there’s no dialogue at all, just sound effects (which are very well done). You simply play through each level as best you can while being haunted by memories and hallucinations related to your father’s abuse.
This indie game is a beautiful, and highly underrated.
The story of Journey is about a robed figure who wanders through an empty desert landscape on a mission to save their fellow monks from a great evil. The only way to help your fellow monks is by finding them, which you do by activating symbols in the environment. Once you find their symbol, it creates a beam that shows where the next monk needs rescuing from. You’ll travel across mountains and through caves until you reach them.
This game has no text or dialogue at all—it’s entirely visual storytelling through gameplay alone! It’s got gorgeous visuals that make you feel like you’re actually there in the middle of this magical world with your friends (even though they aren’t real). There also isn’t any voice acting – just music that plays as background noise while playing so it’s not distracting or annoying!
The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead is a point-and-click adventure game based on the comic book series of the same name. It was released in 2012 and developed by Telltale Games, who has since become known for its high quality adventure games. The Walking Dead stars Lee Everett as he tries to find a way through a zombie apocalypse with his new friend, Clementine.
The game received positive reviews from critics, who praised its writing and storytelling, saying that it was able to capture themes like loss, desperation and hope in such an emotional way that it made them care about these characters even more than if they were real people.
P.T. (Playable Teaser)
P.T. (Playable Teaser) was a demo released on the PlayStation Store before Silent Hills was cancelled. You play as a man named “Alex,” who wakes up in an old house with no memory of who he is or where he came from. After exploring his surroundings, Alex finds himself being hunted by a group of nurses and eventually turns into a monster himself. The entire game takes place in one room, and it’s all set up like an old-fashioned haunted house attraction at Universal Studios—you know, the kind that used to be set up around Halloween but are now just full of ghosts?
P.T., as it’s called for short since most people probably can’t pronounce “Playable Teaser” without biting their tongue off, is designed by Hideo Kojima (the creator behind Metal Gear Solid) and developed by Kojima Productions (the studio also responsible for Metal Gear Solid). If you’re not familiar with either name yet then let me tell you: This guy knows how to make video games! He likes putting tons of easter eggs into his games too—if there’s something weird going on in one area then chances are someone left it there intentionally because they wanted other players (or maybe even future versions themselves!) to find out what happened there someday when their work wasn’t so secretive anymore…
Shadow of the Colossus
Shadow of the Colossus is a classic game. It has beautiful art, an interesting story and music that will stay with you long after you’ve finished playing.
The gameplay in Shadow of the Colossus is similar to other open-world games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Horizon Zero Dawn. But while these games feature a massive world full of various enemies, quests, and dungeons to explore, Shadow of the Colossus sticks you on one large map with only 16 colossi for you to find. Each colossus has different weaknesses such as shooting or stabbing them in certain areas (or even lighting braziers). There are also hidden lizards on each level that give you more health when consumed by performing certain actions. These elements create an engaging experience where players must figure out how best to use their weapons against each giant creature before they can defeat him or her.
The story in Shadow Of The Colossus takes place after a young man named Wander learns that his dead lover Mono has been resurrected by sacrifice alone; through her sacrifice comes life again — but not without consequence: it will cost him everything he holds dear.”
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is a third-person action video game developed by Monolith Productions and released in September 2014. The game is set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and follows Talion, a Ranger who was killed alongside his family but returns from death to avenge them. To do this he uses Celebrimbor’s ring to create wraiths which can be controlled by him to defeat Sauron’s army.
The game received positive reviews praising it for its gameplay and Nemesis system among other things. It was also praised for not being too similar to previous titles based on the same universe such as “Battle For Middle Earth” or even Assassin’s Creed Revelations which came out only months earlier despite being part of an entirely different franchise (Assassin’s Creed).
