This post should start out by saying this is not the greatest games of all-time list. There may be some on the list in that conversation, but that is not the goal. This is a list that will go from 1 to 10 with 1 being the top game worth playing this week down to 10.
This list will include a variety of game types. They may not all be your type of game, but I will do my best to describe the games so you have a good idea what it is, should you decide to give it a shot.
1. Dying Light 2
The best game of the week goes to Techlands, Dying Light 2. This is not a typical post-apocalyptic survival game. There is no thirst, no hunger, and no traditional base building hat you might see in some other zombie type games. Nope, Techland took a different avenue by focusing on its parkour hook. Traverse the city and stay out of arms reach of the infected. This is hands down the top game of the week.
2. Elden Ring
Elden Ring released recently and is making it up my board as one of the best games you can play right now. It is a new game which has players flocking in to witness the Demon Souls style game. The game focuses more on bosses and mini bosses rather than questing like some other games in the open world rpg universe. Choose a champion, style him/her however you wish, and go explore this dangerous world.
3. No Man’s Sky
No Man’s Sky might be a distant memory to former players. The game has seen some up and down since it released back in 2016. The first year in particular was brutal for this game. It has seen some fantastic upgrades and updates since back then. This is an easy must play. The game focuses on having the largest playable area in existence. Enjoy endless exploration, crafting, and building in this game that always has something worth doing.
4. Destiny 2
Destiny 2 has had a good run. That good run continues as the Witch Queen is bringing a whole new experience to the game. Enjoy a looter shooter experience that is very much becoming a unique experience. The story is okay, but the multiplayer experience is a cut above most games of its kind.
5. Cyberpunk 2077
A game that doesn’t get the credit it deserves. It came out of the gate with some very harsh criticism, but the game has seen its share of upgrades. Enjoy a futuristic version of society in the beautiful open world that is Night City. For single players only.
6. Pokémon Legends: Arceus
If you’re a Pokemon connoisseur than this is a must play. I do believe that even people who aren’t fans of the Poke Universe could have a great time exploring this version of the game. The game is more focused on cute storytelling and, of course, Pokémon adventures.
7. Red Dead Redemption 2
Yes, people still play this one. The game is more sold on the multiplayer aspects as getting top tier items can be very difficult to obtain on one’s own. The single player story is very rewarding in its own right with incredible scenes, acting, and action!
8. Fallout 76
A game that has been trying to stay afloat for quite some time is Fallout 76. It continues to reinvent itself, only to see numbers ascend for a short while and collapse. A very cool concept, but a game that is way more fun with friends. The single player aspects tend to get old grinding on one’s own. A very good game, nonetheless.
9. Lost Ark
Lost Ark is falling quite significantly for us here so far. It is a very fun game, but it has left a little something to be desired. A free to play MMO action RPG that has received a bit of criticism out of the gate. Some of this criticism revolves around the limits of the characters. Overall, a really good experience. Just needs some work.
10. Skate 3
Somehow making its way into a top ten after a million years is Skate 3. The game continues to build popularity as short clip creators build off of the insanity of the sweet tricks, challenges, and customizable skating areas.
There you have my list of top ten games worth playing this week. What do you think? Yell at me on social media!
