#10 Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
- Developer: Eidos Montreal, Feral Interactive
- Publisher: Square Enix, Feral Interactive
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. This task force seeks to capture terrorist groups that use augmentations against the innocent. However, Jensen is also working in secrecy with a hacking group known as Juggernaut Collective that is currently seeking members of the Illuminati.
#9 BioShock: The Collection
- Developer: Blind Squirrel Games
- Publisher: 2K Games
BioShock and BioShock 2 were iconic titles and as such we’re not surprised when the game received a remastered collection just a couple years ago. As I’m sure you’ve already assumed, this collection not only contains the main video game title narratives but also the downloadable content that released prior, making this collection quite filling to go through.
Sold in retail as a two-disc collection, all three games will run in 1080p resolution with 60 frames per second so even if you dabbled into the rapture before, this new coat of paint makes replaying these games worth it.
#8 Detroit: Become Human
- Developer: Quantic Dream
- Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Set in Detroit, Michigan, and developed by Quantic Dream, gamers who enjoy choice-driven narratives will want to pick up Detroit: Become Human. This is a futuristic neo-noir thriller that’s based off an old 2012 tech demo from Quantic Dream that became viral online.
Players will take control of three different characters, all of which are androids. You will have Kara, a female android that has escaped the factory from where she was made. There’s also Connor, who is a male android that is tasked with hunting down deviant androids. Lastly, there is Markus, another male android who has begun an android revolution against the human race.
This video game is all about choices and it certainly seems that there will be a ton of them to choose through within the game. In fact, there are so many choices that each will alter the narrative storyline and can have grave consequences with your characters.
#7 Fallout 4
- Developer: Bethesda Game Studios

If you’re a fan of the Fallout franchise then it’s likely you’ve already picked up the latest release. However, if you’re completely new to the series, Fallout 4 still marks as a great first entry. Set during the events of a nuclear war, players manage to escape into a vault, only to awaken hundreds of years into the future. What’s left of your world is nothing more than decay and outsiders trying to make it by in this new world.
Each installment to the Fallout franchise manages to bring out an incredible wasteland to explore and Fallout 4 is no exception to that trend. You’ll come across old ruins, new structures, and a fleshed out cast of characters to meet along your journey.
#6 Titanfall 2
- Developer: Respawn Entertainment

From development studio, Respawn Entertainment comes their latest video game title Titanfall 2. Players will still have the competitive online multiplayer component that Titanfall is known for, however, this time around the sequel launches with a full singleplayer narrative campaign.
