With that said, I think you’ll still find thirty amazing action video game titles to play from this list below. From action titles with a sneaky stealth component to full blown war games where players must dive directly into the enemy forces. These thirty titles are our favorites but let us know what your favorite action title is by leaving a comment down below!
#37 Just Cause 3
  • Developer: Avalanche Studios
  • Publisher: Square Enix
Just Cause 3 is the third game in the long-running Just Cause series of third-person action games. Offering a vast open world setting on a fictional Mediterranean island known as Medici, series protagonist Rico Rodriguez returns, this time to oust a dictator named General Di Ravello from power. The game’s map size has been confirmed to be similar to that of Just Cause 2, offering 400 square miles of content–but with increased verticality. The game is the biggest and baddest entry in the series to date.
#36 Far Cry Primal
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
Far Cry Primal, will take players back into the past, more specifically, 10,000 BCE during the Mesolithic period. Players take the role of Takkar, one of the last remaining members of the Wenja tribe, a group of peaceful people that is often made an easy target from other tribes within the world. Takkar decides to take his remaining people and lead them from extinction which will be a tough task facing against the other more powerful tribes and the diverse wildlife. Speaking of the wildlife, animals will play a major role in Far Cry Primal where players can tame and use them to their advantage. Some of the animals present in the game are saber-toothed cats, woolly mammoths, cave bears, dire wolfs, jaguars, snow leopards, among others. Each of these animals will have a particular skill level to use against enemies, for example, the cave bear is great for defense and can be led in to take out a number of enemies without a problem. Weapons are primitive with players having to seek out resources to craft most of their arsenal. For the most part, players will be using bows, spears, blades, and clubs to fight against enemies though as we pointed out earlier, wildlife can be used to your advantage as well. One aspect that is amiss from the previous Far Cry 4 release is multiplayer. Far Cry Primal is a single-player title as Ubisoft felt multiplayer would take away from the story and gameplay experience.
#35 Rage 2
Rage 2 will toss players into the role of Walker who is the last ranger. It’s your job to survive in this dangerous world after mutants flooded the world thanks to an otherworldly asteroid struck the surface. Thirty years have passed since the events of the first Rage so you can expect to see a few familiar characters. This is still a brutal FPS with an open world for players to explore while also facing a wide range of hostiles. There are also a few new weapons being tossed in such as a spear that can track down enemies for players to send out and eliminate which should add an extra bit of strategy during the chaotic firefights.
#34  Far Cry New Dawn
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: February 15, 2019
Note: Spoilers for Far Cry 5 If you enjoyed Far Cry 5 then you know that the ending leaves you hanging. At the end of the game you find that the world is on the brink of collapsing due to the end of the world and you find yourself stuck with the antagonist where the game ends following credits. Now if you’re hoping to find out what happens after the credits roll and what has happened to Hope County after the nuclear blast then you’ll get the opportunity in Far Cry New Dawn. This title takes place seventeen years after the events of Far Cry 5 where you will find returning characters from Far Cry 5 and the result of the protagonist and antagonist of Far Cry 5. With Hope County mangled and distorted by the nuclear blast, players will find new land masses to explore. Survivors have started to rebuild the world but a new threat of bandits has prevented Hope County from truly being free from tyranny control. Players will be stepping up to free up outposts and preventing from the new bandit group controlled by twin sisters from destroying Hope County and the innocent citizens who dwell within it. This is a game is really more of Far Cry 5 so if you really enjoyed it then this title will be well worth getting. You’re still have plenty of exploring and action with a new crew of enemies to fight off. Likewise, there are new weapons to use against such as a gun rigged up to shoot out circular saws.
#33 Call of Duty WWII
  • Developer: Sledgehammer Games
  • Publisher: Activision
The Call of Duty franchise has been around for decades, but as of late the series has been turning towards more futuristic and current settings. That had changed last year with Call of Duty: WWII, where the franchise, much like Battlefield, took players back to a more primitive warfare. As the name suggests, Call of Duty: WWII is a look back into the Second World War and it definitely feels a bit more gritty and gnarly then we’ve ever seen the war before in a video game medium. Players are centered around a narrative that follows the 1st Infantry Division on the Western Front. An interesting little side note to toss into here is the fact that Call of Duty: WWII doesn’t feature an auto-regeneration for health. This has been the norm for the Call of Duty franchise, but with the setting of an old war filled with grit, courage and the horrors of being on the battlefield, players will need to seek cover and health kits to stay alive. Multiplayer is still very much a big thing with the Call of Duty franchise and the latest title is not missing any beats. You can still enjoy the various online game modes competitively and of course there is a Zombies mode to go through as well.
#32 Infamous: Second Son
  • Developer: Sucker Punch Productions
  • Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment
inFamous: Second Son is a game that deserves to be on this list for its faithful recreation of the city of Seattle and action packed combat. This is a thriving city with developers clearly taking note of the fine details to replicate the real world location. Likewise, if you haven’t played the previous installments in the inFamous franchise then you’ll still be alright. This title takes place several years after the end of inFamous 2 with a brand new protagonist.
#31 Middle-earth: Shadow of War
  • Developer: Monolith Productions
  • Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
Following after the events of Shadow of Mordor, Middle-earth: Shadow of War will continue to follow our main protagonist Talion as he forged a new Ring of Power. However, conflict may arise between Talion and his infused spirit of elf lord Celebrimbor when it comes to their end goals. Outside of the narrative, most of the gameplay mechanics you’ve become acquainted with in the first installment will likely make a return as you take down orcs and travel across the lands completing quests.
#30 Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
  • Developers: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
Assassin’s Creed latest installment is known as Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The video game is set in 431 BCE where players will have the choice of being a mercenary that fights for Athens and the Delian League or the Peloponnesian League led by Sparta. Either way, players will be a descendant of Spartan King Leonidas I during the Peloponnesian War. Much like the previous Assassin’s Creed installments, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will feature a modern day protagonist as well. Ubisoft will be reintroducing players to Layla Hassan who was present during Assassin’s Creed Origins. Developers over at Ubisoft seems to also be working more on an RPG progressive system in this upcoming title which ranges from dialogue choices to a skill tree that can help in aspects such as stealth and combat. Likewise we will see dialogue options which can alter the story narrative and gameplay.
#29 Final Fantasy XV
  • Developer: Square Enix Business Division 2
  • Publisher: Square Enix
Final Fantasy XV is an action role-playing video game and the fifteenth main installment to the Final Fantasy franchise. Overall the story of Final Fantasy XV will center between two empires that have declared war, Lucis and Nifheim, though after Nifheim successfully captures the kingdom’s crystal of Lucis, a group of friend’s sets out to regain it. Players take control of Noctis, prince of Lucis, who teams up with his fellow friends in a grand journey against a massive empire force. The game is also set in an open world environment with available quests and collectibles to gather.
#28 Far Cry 5
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
The fifth main title within the franchise, Far Cry 5, takes place within the United States of America in a fictional Montana place known as Hope County. Within the narrative, Far Cry 5 pins players against Joseph Seed, a leader of a cult who has forced his way into controlling Hope County. As more innocent civilians become trapped and forced into submission under Joseph Seed’s rule, only a handful of resistance stands between Seed and his reign. Just as before, players can expect the title to deliver as a first-person shooter in an open world environment which can be explored either on foot or through vehicles. However, the campaign can be experienced both as a single player narrative or through cooperative multiplayer. Likewise, the game will include a map editor where players will be able to build maps with objectives to complete for when players finish the main campaign.
#27 Watch Dogs 2
  • Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
Watch Dogs 2, much like the first installment of the Watch Dogs franchise, is set in an open-world environment.

#26 Superhot
  • Developer: Superhot Team
  • Publisher: Superhot Team
Superhot was a hit after indie developers first introduced the game as an entry to the 2013 7 Day FPS Challenge. The developers crafted a title in which players take control of a protagonist that must take down a slew of red glowing humanoids. However, the big catch to this title is that time only moves when you do. As a result, players can carefully and slowly move around the level in order to avoid being hit by bullets or other projectile objects. This simple concept grew from a small entry project for a competition to a full video game release on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
#25 Destiny 2
  • Developer: Bungie
  • Publisher: Activision
The sequel to Destiny takes place after the events of Destiny: Rise of Iron. This title starts off with the Red Legion faction of the Cabal having attacked The Last City. Guardians are forced to flee and find new powers to face the Red Legion and bring order over The Last City once again. Just as before, there is new content being added to the game in order to extend narratives or competitive gameplay with other players. This is also a title intended for players to join together and play online.
#24 Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
  • Developer: Treyarch
  • Publisher: Activision
There seems to never be any shortages when it comes to the Call of Duty franchise and this year we’ve received a new installment to the Black Ops line. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be launched in October of this year though there is one rather major element that was completely dropped with this latest installment. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 does not contain a campaign mode. In the day and age of battle royale modes being incredibly popular, Treyarch has decided to make this Call of the Duty title to feature nothing more than a multiplayer component. The focus was doubling down on the multiplayer game modes including Zombies. So if you’re a fan of Call of Duty for their online multiplayer matches then you have nothing to worry about in this installment but with that said, if you picked up the latest installments to enjoy the action-packed campaigns then you may have to hold out for the 2019 installment release.
#23 Apex legends
  • Developer: Respawn Entertainment
  • Publisher: Electronic Arts
Much like Fortnite, Apex Legends is a battle royale video game title.

Likewise, Respawn Entertainment kept this game a secret which generated a ton of hype when it was released into the market. Gamers quickly downloaded this title and it gathered millions of players within its initial launch week. Again, the game is a battle royale title so ultimately this first-person shooter will have players striving to be the last man standing. Players will find that the game will focus on teams of three and that the characters featured are hero classed based which offers their own unique attributes and abilities. Likewise, if you enjoy the Titanfall series then you will find that this game actually takes place in the same universe.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided takes place in 2029, exactly two years after the events of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Players will once again step into the shoes of Adam Jensen as he seeks out the Illuminati, a group that was responsible for the Aug Incident of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. As noted, Deus Ex: Human Revolution presented gamers with the Aug Incident, an event where augmented humans became uncontrollable and lethally violent. This was due to a hacker group is known as Illuminati who implanted technology that would allow the ability to control these affected humans. Adam Jensen is an augmented former private security officer that is now working with a special Interpol unit known as Task Force 29.
