Meanwhile, we’ll settle on X-Men Origins: Wolverine is the definitive representation of the character in action games. Seriously, the gore, the blood, the pure visceral brutality is just bloody brilliant. Pro-tip: Skip breakfast.

The combat is second to none.

Fortunately, they’ve read the room ‘cause they’re plannin’ on resurrectin’ these games. As for what they offer, well, imagine playin’ as a ninja but with a more fantasy element.

Nightshade.

Stealth and engaging combat with a wide variety of tools, plus a bloodthirsty sword that will drain your life if you don’t kill enemies to feed its bloodlust. Shinobi pushes the player to play aggressively to chain kills using TATE. While Nightshade is more traversal-platforming focused; it is equally as compelling.

Red Dead Redemption is one of the most iconic action games.

Wow, didn’t expect Red Dead Redemption and its sequel to show up on our list of action games, did ya’? Well, we do love springin’ surprises, so there ya’ go. So, both are massive open-world backdrops and depict the Wild West fantasy livin’. Well, maybe not the ideal life, but definitely the outlaw kind.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is another one of the most iconic action video games of all time.

The amount of shenanigans you can engage in in both games is just plain ridiculous to think about. From shootouts to bounty huntin’ and even animal trackin’, it’s just so fun. Plus, there’s the ol’ lasso, which can be used for pure evil like tying up people and leavin’ ’em on the train tracks.

Tomb Raider Anniversary – One Of The Finest Action Games And A Heroine To Match

Tomb Raider Anniversary is one of the better action games featuring the best look of Lara Croft.

Tomb Raider Anniversary is a reboot of the original series of action games’ first entry from the classic PS1 era. Boy, does it do a bang-up job of representing Lara Croft in all her charismatic, witty, and charmingly glorious ways. The gameplay’s pretty nice, too, with a nice coat of paint to update the levels as well as Lara’s face.

Dino fights!

Let’s not pretend this game was perfect because it’s not. But Tomb Raider Anniversary is certainly waaay better than the sterile Survivor trilogy. Besides, it’s this version of Lara that makes her one of gaming’s hottest and coolest female heroines.

[26/32]

They’re usually your typically third-person shooter affair, but then you get into the gritty story and those epic bullet-time sequences. The perfect timing to aim and execute satisfying kill shots is a major hook of these games.

Slow-mo bullet time.

The plot keeps you engaged as our titular hero is a man on the run but also a man on a mission of vengeance. There’s an unsettling vibe and ambience that’ll grip you and make you paranoid. The sound design is fantastic, too. We’re glad Max Payne’s makin’ another comeback.

Bulletstorm – High Octane FPS With Innovative Mechanics That’ll Hook Ya’

Bulletstorm is one of the most innovative action FPS games.

Hey, it was a three-way toss-up between Just Cause, Borderlands, Bioshock, and Bulletstorm. After seeing the baggage that comes with the 3 other action games, we simplified the process by picking Bulletstorm. Let’s face it: Bulletstorm is all about creativity and using its unique mechanics for really dope kills.

Ouch!

You get rewarded for switching up how you eliminate enemies, so it’s a good motivation to get better at the game. Bulletstorm also features an instinct leash which hooks enemies closer, while a thumper sends enemies flyin’. Using both in the environments and the unique weapon fire modes on top creates a nice playground to test your skills in.

[21/32]

Ghost Of Tsushima – A Beautiful Work Of Art That’s A Must-Play For Action Gaming Junkies

Ghost Of Tsushima is one of the best Sony exclusive action games.

Look, it was either gonna be Rise Of The Ronin, Nioh and its sequel, or Ghost Of Tsushima. Since we’re not countin’ RPGs, Nioh was out. Among the two action games, Ghost Of Tsushima not only offered a lot more but looked way more awesome, too, so we picked it. This game’s the true essence of the samurai spirit, but you’re also able to play as the titular Ghost.

Ghost Of Tsushima gameplay.

The diversity in both styles, and the gorgeous depiction of Japan’s past with natural environments are highlights of Ghost Of Tsushima. When you engage in combat, it’s so satisfying, whether it’s a samurai duel or stealth kills.

Devil May Cry 1+2+4 – Despite The Divisive Elements, There’s No Denying The Action’s A Masterclass

Devil May Cry 1 is one of the most genre-defining action games.

The first, second and 4th Devil May Cry titles are divisive action games. The first one’s where you really see the bright potential, the stylish combat, and the charismatic persona of Dante.

OP Dante peop

When you jump to Devil May Cry 2, it’s the opposite end of the spectrum where combat is overpowered. The personality’s aged, too. Not many people liked that, but the gameplay and combos were fire.

Devil May Cry 4.

In Devil May Cry 4, devs dared to change the protagonist to a new character. Not everyone liked Nero, but we did. His Devil Bringer arm and burst mode abilities, plus Dante’s moveset tweaks, make Devil May Cry 4 one of the best games ever.

[19/32]

God Of War 1+2 – Early Beginnings To Soaring Heights Among The Greatest Action Games

The original God Of War is one of the most influential action games of all time.

Not to be outdone by DMC, Sony’s original God Of War and its sequel set the new bar for hack-and-slash action games. They still hold up, by the way, and Kratos’ earlier, angrier days feel so nostalgic. They exemplified the simple button-mash formula, and it was utterly satisfying.

God Of War 2.

It’s the range of abilities Kratos has and his weapons, the signature Chaos Blades, that make everything work. Plus, the iconic villains of the series, the Greek Pantheon, give God Of War games that spectacle cinematic vibe. It’s why we aren’t including the newer games; the formula’s too changed up, sorry fanboys~

[18/32]

Marvel’s Spider-Man 1+2 – The Best Depiction Of Spidey’s Combat And Traversal

Insomniac's Marvel's Spider-Man is the definitive version of Spider-man action games.

Our review of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and its prequel is gonna show we’re in love with these action games. The reason for that is that they feel so refreshingly fun and lore-accurate to Spider-Man’s mythos. From the web-swinging and aerial stunts and wall running with astonishingly intuitive combat, everything feels great.

Fantastic!

You’ll notice how the sequel ups the ante and adds in even more wacky ideas. Plus, the two Spider-Men is another nice touch. Miles Morles is a cool character in his own right, and his playstyle and abilities make him different enough that it’s not just a reskin.

[17/32]

The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time – A Timeless Masterpiece Representing The Best Of The Action Games Genre

The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time is one of the greatest action games of all time on top of the best Zelda game ever.

Another case of action games passing the test of time, The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time is a wonderful piece of nostalgia that holds up magnificently well. Players experience the true sense of adventure with story beats that’ll leave you completely immersed in the game.

Ocarina Of Time.

The puzzle-solving, the dungeons full of traps and enemy counters that test your gamer instinct, it’s all there in The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time. But the biggest appeal is in the titular Ocarina Of Time, are it’s melodies. You’re welcome for the memories, people.

[16/32]

Bayonetta Trilogy – The Most Cinematic Series Of Action Games

Bayonetta is the most jaw-dropping series of action games ever.

The Bayonetta games represent the highest form of exaggerated action spectacle. The first one is just so bold, daring, and evocative, thanks to the lead character’s seductive allure. Thank you, Mr. Hideki Kamiya, one of the legendary Japanese video game creators, for creating Bayonneta.

More ambitious and daring.

The second one became even more outrageous, but we’ll be damned if we didn’t love the redesign on Bae Bayonetta. The gameplay was more refined and tightly focused on skill much more than the first one.

Even more bonkers.

Bayonetta 3 really throws everything at the wall to give players total freedom in that they can control the summoned monsters. These open possibilities to do even more over-the-top executions.

[15/32]

Doom (2016) + Doom Eternal – Power Fantasy FPS Action Plus Gripping Traversal

Doom (2016) is just one of the most adrenaline pumping action games ever.

When it comes to Bethesda’s id Software’s output of action games, the two FPS spring to mind. Doom (2016) and its sequel, Doom Eternal, have the unique blend of push-forward momentum and extremely visceral finishers. This combination gives both titles such a frantic pace you’ll feel overwhelmed.

DOOM Eternal.

But it’s not the kind of feeling that’ll make you stop playing, no. It’s a learning curve that’ll enjoy mastering. The result of your efforts will be a power fantasy like no other. You’ll become the DoomGuy and DoomSlayer, slaughtering demons by the dozens every minute.

[14/32]

Resident Evil 4/RE4 Remake – Both Are Genre Defining Action Games

The OG Resident Evil 3 is still one of the best action games ever.

The genre of survival horror and action games don’t often mix well as splendidly as the OG Resident Evil 4. Even better is that, the Resident Evil 4 Remake improves a lot of things from the first title. So, what do they have in common? Well, aside from an atmospheric sinister vibe and action-heavy scenarios, there’s an excellent zaniness to the whole thing.

Resident Evil 4 Remake.

The different enemy types and special boss encounters really catch players by surprise. Exploration and level design are truly superb to experience. The gun handling and the outlandish German suplexing make a glorious return, too, from the original. Albert Wesker is here, too, and his movesets are the best in the multiplayer mode.

[13/32]

Vanquish – Platinum Games creativity For Action Games At It’s Finest

Vanquish is one of the wackiest action games ever.

Vanquish is the really underrated gem among other top-tier action games. We’re not kidding here, people. The unique traversal mechanic and rapid-action enemy AI ensure it’s always balls-to-the-walls fun in Vanquish. The story ain’t winnin’ any awards here, but it’s gameplay is where it truly shines.

The slide gameplay!

In Vanquish, the protagonist uses a mech suit to slide across the battlefield, closing the distance between himself and his enemies. You also get satisfying firepower in addition to the unique traversal. The result is that every action feels purposeful, no wasted motion, and every attack has a punchiness, too.

[12/32]

Sifu – Top-Tier Skill-Based Combat Action Adrenaline Rush

Sifu is one of the most challenging action games.

Don’t let the low-fi graphics fool ya’; Sifu is every bit as fun as you’ve heard. Sifu is one of those  terrific melee brawler-focused action games that bring new twists to the niche. You use everything at your disposal to obliterate your enemies, from melee combos to environmental destruction and makeshift weaponry.

Sifu gameplay.

Another thing Sifu does brilliantly is the incorporation of its reincarnation mechanic. If you die in battle, your character comes back to life, but they age. Now, they’ll grow wiser and sometimes even have mastery of new moves in this state. The trade-off is that their reflexes will become slow. It’s a truly skill-based extravaganza.

[11/32]

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice – The One Soulslike That’s Not Soulslike

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is one of the best action games of all time.

Aha~ since we’re not gonna include any SoulsBorne RPG action games, we’re gonna go with the odd one. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is souls-like to a degree, but not really. It’s more in line with Tenchu, than anything else, with a dash of supernatural. You play as a samurai who must defeat supernatural beings using their sword.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice gameplay.

The key here is that the swordplay requires finesse more than anything else. You gotta time the dodges, parry, and then deliver a final killing blow. It’s really intense and not for casuals, but it ain’t Dark Souls level hard, either. So, git good, capeesh?

[10/32]

Metal Gear Rising Revengeance – Bonkers, Over-The-Top Cheesy, And Incredibly Fun

Metal Gear Rising Revengeance is one of the most over-the-top action games ever.

Next we got another one of the mystifyingly cheesy, yet gratifyingly fulfilling action games, Metal Gear Rising Revengeance. This spin-off entry of the Metal Gear saga is so radically different from the mainline games with a focus on extermination. Yeah, not combat, because that implies enemies are on equal footing, which they aren’t to Raiden.

slice and dice.

Yep, Mr. wanna–be from Metal Gear Solid 2, who fans accepted in Metal Gear Solid 4 is the hero here. Raiden’s mech suit and blade are the slice-and-dish combo you never knew you needed. He straight up casually rips spines and chops up enemies to a million pieces. This is peak action gameplay.

[9/32]

Assassin’s Creed 1+ Ezio Trilogy – Peak Blend Of Parkor Action And Stealth

The OG Assassin's Creed is one of the best stealth action games of all time.

Oh, boy, we’re probably gonna trigger the fanboys for this, but the first as well as the Ezio Trilogy of Assasasin’s Creed action games are still the measuring stick of success for the franchise. Yep, despite a return to form in Assassin’s Creed Mirage, the first 4 titles are undeniably superior.

Assassin's Creed Ezio Trilogy.

Whether it’s the parkour traversal, freedom of movement, or stealth-focused action gameplay, the first 4 games just nail everything to perfection. You actually got to plan out your assassinations in a tactical way, too. Plus the charm and charisma of Altair Ibn La Ahad and Ezio Auditore Da Firenzei are through the roof, too.

[8/32]

The Batman Arkham Games – The Most Authentic Super Hero Games Ever

Batman Arkham Origins is part of the best super hero action games of all time.

Do we really need to explain this one? The disaster that was Suicide Squad Kills The Justice League killed off the Arkham Legacy. We needed a list of action games to help us get over SS: KTJL. Now, let’s return to the roots of greatness with Batman Arkham Origins, Batman Arkham Asylum, Batman Arkham City, and Batman Arkham Knight.

The Batman Arkham Trilogy.

Every entry offers something unique and memorable. Origins provides a grittier and more ruthless Batman as he faces the bounty hunters who’re gunning for his head. Asylum is a straight-up horror story and the most atmospheric. City is an epic action-adventure with the right amount of mystery and plot twists. While Knight is the perfect send-off to the late Kevin Conroy.

[7/32]

God Of War 3 – The Gold Standard Of Hack-And-Slash Gameplay

God Of War 3 is the pinnacle of the series of action games.

The greatest action games have this power fantasy element to them which makes for really alluring gameplay. God Of War 3 stands as the pinaccle of the franchise because it was a build up and the conclusion to the original saga. The cinematic style presentation, the emotional highs and all of Kratos’ rage, boilin’ over, it felt so amazing.

God Of War III.

The combat is otherworldly, and the executions are just pure savagery. Kratos is the catalyst for chaos and he brings about the end of the corrupt rulers of the Greek Pantheon. The game just hits all the right notes to bring the best hack-and-slash combos to date. 

[6/32]

Armored Core VI: Fires Of Rubicon – Fantastic And Thrilling Mecha Gameplay

Armored Core VI: Fires Of Rubicon is one of the best action games in recent memory.

The entire FromSoftware line-up of action games might follow a similar playstyle, but not Armored Core VI: Fires Of Rubicon. This game’s an absolutely delightful change of pace with its vehicular combat and traversal. You’ll be strafing like a pro, doing mid-air spins, and tactical manuvering to line up your shots.

riveting stuff.

The customization of weaponry to the mech’s slots adds lots of variety to the builds, too. Armored Core VI: Fires Of Rubicon is so great at giving you that dose of adrenaline with a difficulty curve that’s not too steep neither a cakewalk.

[5/32]

Sleeping Dogs – One Of The Most Criminally Underrated Action Games

Sleeping Dogs.

Sleeping Dogs is one of those action games that we wished sold more and we got a sequel to. This game’s gripping storytelling is full of emotional moments that’ll have you gasping in shock. The brutal combat has devastating finishers and a morality progression system where your actions impact the upgrades you unlock.

Sleeping Dogs gameplay.

A huge engaging open-world structure with plenty of side activities and detective work just makes Sleeping Dogs such a gem. You’ll play as an undercover cop who infiltrates the triads to bring them down from the inside. Your loyalties will be tested, too as you bond with the criminals. Great stuff we tell ya.

[4/32]

Devil May Cry 3+5 – The Best Hits Of The Devil May Cry Franchise By Far

Devil May Cry 3.

The divide between the fan base of action games enthusiasts is strong when comparing Devil May Cry 3 and 5. Both games have a strong case to present themselves as the best of the franchise, too. It’s Hideaki Itsuno’s talents that we’re even having this debate. Dante from Devil May Cry 3 is the Muhammad Ali of video games, he talks a lot of thrash but backs it up with insanely epic combos, devil arms, skills, and panache.

Devil May Cry 5.

Transition to Devil May Cry 5, Dante’s vibe and energy are mostly the same, but he’s gruffier, too. Naturally, the moves you can pull off are even more outlandish than in previous entries. The visuals are nice, too. Overall, it’s a coin toss, and we’re not pickin’ sides… yet.

[3/32]

Hi-Fi RUSH – High On Originality, Strong On Enjoyability, Even Better On Replayability

Hi-Fi RUSH.

One of the heart-warming and biggest shadow drop action games of 2023, HiFi RUSH is wholesome fun exemplified. Y’all can’t hate this game, it’s just impossible. HiFi RUSH embraces the cheesiness and gives you an underdog tale of wanna-be rockstar Chai and his friends.

Hi-Fi RUSH gameplay.

He’s fighting against the machine, literally as there are a lot of’em. But also dreams of makin’ it big, despite his shortcomings. The guy’s musical sync is utilized as a weapon as you time your button presses to score the perfect hits. The traversal and goofy tunes will put a smile to your face as you see Chai parodying Dante.

Ninja Gaiden Trilogy – The Trailblazer Titles For All Future Progress In Action Games

Ninja Gaiden Sigma.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma is the first of the trilogy of action games that you can play in the Ninja Gaiden Master Collection. Let us tell you it is a hoot. The action from the get-go will have you hooked. This game’s not for the casual crowd.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma II.

The second game, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 delivers even more powerful enemies and bosses, while somewhat making the upgrade complicated. But don’t sweat it, you’ll really need to master the Dragon Sword anyway.

Ninja Gaiden III Razor's Edge.

The third game, Ninja Gaiden: Razor’s Edge is a hit or miss, personally we love it. We finally see Ryu Hayabusa in a vulnerable light. The action’s still pretty great, though, and the Ninpo attacks feel more cinematic now, which is always nice.

[1/32]

Darksiders Warmastered Edition – The Imitation Is The Sincerest Form Of Homage To Other Action Games

Darksiders Warmastered Edition.

Make way for the king of action games, Darksiders: Warmasted Edition. Yeah, we’re doing this, so bring on the hate. The first Darksiders is the M-rated Zelda game y’all wanted with a dash of DMC and God Of War-style combat thrown in for good measure. But, here’s the kicker: Darksiders as a series stars the most unique protagonists in all of gaming fiction: The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Darksiders: Warmastered Edition gameplay.

Yep, and not only are each one different from one another, they have unique personalities, that make them likable. In Darksiders Warmastered Edition we play as War, rider of the red horse. He’s been accused of bringing armageddon on humanity in a conspiracy. So, to clear his name and get his revenge he goes to a now post-apocalyptic Earth to punish the guilty. The combat is just such a joy to experience in Darksiders Warmastered edition, it’s accessible and fun. The exploration is great, too. There are tons of iconic boss fights and everything feels intriguing. We’re fanboys, sue us!
