Current trends within gaming can indicate the decline of fantastic single player experiences. Some could say that there is a bigger push to see multiplayer focused video games with game modes mimicking the success that PUBG or Fortnite brought out into the public. With that said, we’re still hoping to see brand new IP’s and new installments to some of our most beloved single player campaign narrative video game titles.
If you’re looking to enjoy something new without having to focus on jumping online or gathering a group of friends then check out our list below. We’ve compiled thirty of our favorite single player video game titles that were released in this latest generation of consoles. Hopefully, you’ll find something new to play. Likewise, did we miss out on a great single player title that released within the past five years? Let us know by leaving a comment down below.
#30 Dragon Age: Inquisition
- Developer: BioWare Edmonton
- Publisher: Electronic Arts
- Platforms: PC, PS3, PS4, X360, XBO
The third major installment to the Dragon Age franchise, Dragon Age: Inquisition is an action role-playing video game where players take on the role of an Inquisitor who is on a grand journey to deal with the civil unrest in the continent of Thedas.
While developers have set the game to be on the same continent of the past two installments, exploration for Dragon Age: Inquisition is rather massive in comparison. For instance, it’s been noted that the game features a map that is already five times larger than the setting of the first installment of the series. With all that said, you’ll want to set aside some time to really dive into the video game.
#29 Batman: Arkham Knight
- Developer: Rocksteady Studios
- Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
- Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
If you’re coming from Batman: Arkham City and looking to get a bit more of the caped crusader then Batman: Arkham Knight is one title not to miss out on. The video game acts as a sequel to the Arkham City release where the game picks up one year following the Arkham City events.
Within the game, Scarecrow had unleashed an attack on Gotham City causing a massive evacuation. Teamed up with a mysterious enemy known as the Arkham Knight, Batman is left within a barren city filled with his greatest foes.
Much like Batman: Arkham City, Arkham Knight allows players to freely transverse through the world map and take on additional side missions. Likewise, developers, Rocksteady Studios introduced a new element to the franchise, the Batmobile.
Batman’s famous vehicle is not only used to help our hero to travel throughout the city, but also a means to solve puzzles along with acting as another combat tool.
