Horizon Zero Dawn is a third-person action game set in a post-apocalyptic world. You play as Aloy, a hunter, and archer who must fight robots using both weapons and stealth. The game is set in a vast open-world with stunning visuals and an interesting narrative.

Aloy has to find out what happened to her fellow humans over the past thousand years, and how she fits into this new world order. As she discovers more about herself, she’ll also uncover what happened to humanity at large—and how it all ties into the mysterious “old ones” who aren’t quite human anymore…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an action role-playing game (RPG) that follows the story of Geralt of Rivia as he searches for his adopted daughter Ciri. She’s being pursued by the Wild Hunt, a group of spectral riders who have been kidnapping young girls with special powers.

The Witcher 3 is one of the best open-world games because it’s not just about exploring its expansive world and completing missions, but also about taking time to stop and smell the roses. You can take on a wide range of side quests that involve helping people in small towns, solving mysteries, or killing monsters—all while earning money for equipment upgrades or crafting new goods in your inventory.

4. LEGO Worlds

Injustice 2 is a fighting game developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. It’s the sequel to Injustice: Gods Among Us, which was released on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U in 2013.

Injustice 2 allows you to play as DC Comics superheroes like Wonder Woman and Batman as you battle supervillains across several open-world locations on Earth 1, such as Metropolis or Gotham City. You can also fight against other players online or in story mode battles against computer AI (artificial intelligence).

The plot focuses on Superman being arrested for killing Lois Lane (who had been possessed by Joker’s daughter) after she shot Lex Luthor in cold blood; he has since been locked up at Stryker’s Island prison facility until his trial begins three years later (one year after the events of Injustice: Gods Among Us). Meanwhile, Batman works with members of his team—including Nightwing, Blue Beetle, and Black Canary—to try to find out who killed Alfred Pennyworth while also looking into whether or not someone is high up within S.T.A.R is working with Gorilla Grodd’s Society faction.”

8. Far Cry 5

The fifth installment in the Far Cry series is set in a fictional county in Montana, where you’ll take on the role of a sheriff’s deputy searching for his missing brother. The game features an expansive world with plenty of things to do, including hunting and fishing challenges (which are great for those who want to relax after a hard day of shooting), as well as side missions that can be completed by teaming up with other players online.

A few cool things about this game are its characters: each one has its own unique personality and backstory, so you’ll learn more about them as they progress through their own personal stories. It also has some excellent voice acting that helps bring these characters to life even more!

Another thing we love about this game is how replayable it is—you can play through the story from different points of view (you have six different playable characters). This means that if one character dies during your playthrough or if you’re just not into playing as them anymore (we all have our preferences!), there are still five other characters that give us something new to explore.”

9. Middle Earth Shadow of War

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is the sequel to 2014’s Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, which was itself a pretty good game. In it, you play as Talion who has been resurrected by an Elf and now has wraith powers to use on his enemies. You also have access to some of the most powerful weapons in all of Middle Earth as well as a whole host of other characters at your disposal.

There is a ton of content in this game, it offers plenty of side missions that challenge you to complete certain tasks like killing certain bosses or completing story missions within a certain time limit. The collectibles include legendary weapons, runes, and artifacts that can be used for crafting upgrades for your items respectively.

10. Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy

Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy is a collection of remastered Crash Bandicoot games. It’s available on PS4 and Xbox One. The first three games in the series have been reimagined, featuring improved graphics, sound, level design, and more.

The Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy is a good game for kids because it has colorful graphics that are easy to see and play. The controls are simple to pick up if you’re new to video games—you use the left analog stick to move around levels while jumping and punching bad guys with your right thumbstick or face buttons on the controller (or both). There are plenty of hidden areas where players will find different items like power-ups (like invincibility) or gems that they can use to unlock additional levels later on in their journey through this colorful world!

Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy is also great for adults because it features challenging obstacles during gameplay making it fun for anyone looking for an entertaining challenge when playing video games at home with friends or family members

11. Fallout 4

The game is set in a post-apocalyptic Boston, where the player is tasked with rebuilding society and maintaining order. The game is an open-world action role-playing game played from a first-person perspective. As with previous Fallout games, it features base building and dynamic dialogue options. Fallout 4’s story takes place over the course of 210 years after an atomic war destroys most life on earth; as such, many characters have had to endure major physical changes due to radiation exposure. Players may choose from six possible companions to accompany them during quests, who occupy their own lives in the wasteland when not being played by players (for example Codsworth will continue his usual duties like a robot butler). The player can build settlements using gathered materials such as wood or steel alloys for protection against raiders who want those resources for themselves; these settlements can also be used as safe havens if enemies destroy other parts of your base (via invasion or attack) while you are away exploring other parts of the map.

12. Yakuza 0

Yakuza 0 is a prequel to the franchise, which can be played in two ways: as part of a series, or as a standalone title. The game follows two characters on their journeys through Japan and explores how they became who they are in later installments. It’s a high-octane narrative that moves at breakneck speed but also has room for more introspective character development and exploration of themes like honor, loyalty, and family.

In terms of gameplay, Yakuza 0 is an open-world action-adventure set in Kamurocho circa 1988 with RPG elements—you control four playable characters as they explore the city (with plenty of sidequests along the way), beat up bad guys (and sometimes each other) with martial arts moves or weapons like baseball bats and knives, work various jobs to earn money with which you can buy upgrades for your abilities or new equipment such as clothes or tattoos that change how NPCs interact with you while playing dress-up!
