Based on the Fables comic book series, The Wolf Among Us is another hit from developers Telltale Games.

Now hiding in the human world, players take on the role of Bigby Wolf, once known as the Big Bad Wolf, who must keep the fables in check in order to avoid unwanted attention.

#13 Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
- Developer: MachineGames
- Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
- Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, NS
- Release: October 27, 2017
The video game Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus follows the events of Wolfenstein: The New Order which alters historical events. With the Nazi Regime ruling the world, a military resistance looks to fight back within America, acting as the nation’s second American Revolution against the Nazi rule. However, we would recommend playing the first installment, Wolfenstein: The New Order in order to follow the narrative journey of BJ Blazkowicz as he battles against the Nazi reign if you have yet to do so.
Regardless, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a fantastic video game sequel that not only continues to capture the brutality story with full of intense action and firefights. This is also a single player focused video game adventure so you’ll have to look elsewhere if you’re wanting a cooperative or multiplayer other various multiplayer game modes.
#12 Gone Home
- Developer: The Fullbright Company
- Publisher: The Fullbright Company, Majescco Entertainment, Annpurna Interactive
- Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, NS
- Release: August 15, 2013
Gone Home plays out like a first-person adventure title where players take on the role of a young girl who returns home on break. However, once players arrive home they find it empty. This journey is based around finding where your mother, father and sister has vanished too.
Gameplay is more or less a walking simulator where you roam from room to room in order to find enough clues that you’ll figure out just what happened prior to your arrival. While this title looks to be filled with jump scares just waiting to pop out, it’s actually a deep narrative journey that’s relaxed. You won’t find yourself running from a supernatural being or invader. Of course with that said, this is still a mature story that plays out through clues and messages you find throughout the home.
