#18 Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege
Made as the successor to the previously announced and now canceled Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Patriots, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege makes our list. Much like the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six franchise is known for, this is a tactical shooter with more of an active community of players online.
The overall premise of the game is a fight between a group of terrorists and of course a Rainbow team. Just as a mentioned, there is a singleplayer narrative for gamers to go through, but as it stands right now, more players are picking the game up for its online competitive gameplay.
Essentially, one team of terrorists will be seeking out a hostage while the Rainbow team must carefully breach a building and take down the terrorist group. Being a tactical shooter, there’s a bit more to the gameplay then running in and spraying bullets in each room.
Instead of turning a home into an active war zone, there’s slew of gadgets and weaponry made to make kills effective and accurate. There may be times of a standstill while you prepare for a takedown or breach, but if you have a team of friends ready and voiced online, this game could make for endless fun.
