Red Dead Redemption

This product was recommended by Patrick Sinclair from All Home Robotics

Rockstar’s third-person open-world story game set in the wild west set the bar for what an open-world game can be, with its authentic setting, gut-wrenching story, beautiful visuals and sharp gunplay. The deadeye mechanic introduced in this game allowed you to feel like a true sharpshooter. This is a timeless game that will always be worth going back to, especially after playing through the prequel RDR2.

Batman: Arkham City

This product was recommended by Patrick Sinclair from All Home Robotics

Arkham City is a true classic in every sense. No game since then has told a more comprehensive Batman story. The writing is genius, and the turn of events leading to the ending will keep you always on the edge of your seat. And that isn’t even counting the fantastic free-flow combat system that the developers came up with, as well as the stealth mechanics, which truly make you feel like the Batman, stalking his prey from the shadows.

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag

This product was recommended by Patrick Sinclair from All Home Robotics

Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed games, by 2014, were starting to lose their magic. That was until Black Flag launched, and revitalised the franchise. Players found the charismatic badass Assassin they were looking for since the golden days in Edward Kenway, the ruthless pirate turned assassin through a satisfying redemption arc. The stealth and parkour mechanics were the most solid they’d been yet, and the naval combat, a fan favourite from the previous game, was refined to near perfection. Black Flag still holds up to this day as one of the best entries in the franchise.

The Last of Us Part II – PlayStation 4

This product was recommended by Katherine Brown from Spyic

This is surely the best 7th gen video game with the greatest story of all time. Its characters are well-realized, and the writing is great for the dialogue to stick in your head. You get a good gaming experience with the masterful voice which can be shocking and emotional at times. Furthermore, you get a complete thrill ride from the beginning throughout the entire way to the end.


This product was recommended by Adam Ng from Trusted Malaysia

Journey holds the record for the fastest-selling game ever released on PlayStation store for a variety of reasons. This ethereal third-person adventure combines a mysterious war-torn history with an ambiguous purpose and surreal graphics. Players can interact within the game without much choice as same-level individuals get randomly placed in the same game. The glowing mountain in the distance is both a guide and a destination for players as it is where the remnants of the lost civilization remain. This game is great for both adults and kids looking to have an explorative and cooperative experience.

Mass Effect 2

This product was recommended by Shaun Savage from Try Hard Guides

One of the best games of the 7th generation is Mass Effect 2. This game takes you on an epic story throughout a futuristic galaxy where humans and aliens must coexist. Not only is the story gripping and well-told, you interact with a variety of compelling characters where your decisions influence the outcome of their lives and the future of the galaxy. There is no better time to try out this game than now, because it was recently remastered and is bundled in a collection with the other two games in the trilogy! This enhancement of this classic set of games has done nothing but improve upon the originals, while leaving the story intact.


This product was recommended by Eric Powers from Big Game Pro Shop

Roblox has millions of downloadable games and experiences, and among the most popular are Minecraft, Diner Dash 2 and Family Barn. Roblox is a kid-friendly platform where users can create their 3D avatar using 100s of different parts, customize their environment with cool gear like lights, vehicles, and animated objects then explore unlimited different worlds created by fellow gamers! Users can compete in mini-games or socialize with other online players across computers or mobile devices. It’s a surprisingly deep MMO, so you’ll need plenty of time to explore everything offered on Roblox!

Super Mario Galaxy

This product was recommended by Kane Swerner from Memento Memorabilia

In every other way, Super Mario Galaxy is still a terrific game. The clever art style holds up as you bounce across asteroids, galaxies, and meteors while exploring beautifully crafted landscapes. The levels are very imaginative, and the soundtrack is excellent. Mario, on the other hand, has a plethora of amusing moves! This game is really a work of art, with something for everyone irrespective of the way of playing. It’s a must-have title for every Switch owner. It’s also surprisingly easy to play with only the Wii controller.

Classic Sudoku game

This game is compatible with the 7th generation devices. You can play this brain game on your Kindle Fire tablet optimally. The compatible graphics with high definition quality makes the players to get involved into the play

Minecraft Master Collection – Xbox One

This product was recommended by Darrian Wilkins from Kitchen Fold

When I am taking a break from the kitchen, I enjoy spending time with my boys and playing Minecraft and we have fun challenging one another. The graphics are sound and the gameplay is exciting and fun. We enjoy reviewing what we have built and we play for hours!

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

This product was recommended by Jen Jones from Your Dog Advisor

I suggest this product as Tomb Raider was the game I received when I bought my PS1 in 1998. I enjoyed getting to know the game and figuring out the challenges. It was also exciting that a woman was the lead character in the game. The graphics and storyline have improved tremendously in this version. It is also fun to watch others play and we often joke about spectator players that can assist when watching the game being played.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

This product was recommended by Daniela Sawyer from FindPeopleFast

After the odd demise of the Emperor, the throne of Tamriel stays empty. Demons move towards the open empire. The game is to find that lost heir, film the throne, remove the darkness, and save Tamriel.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

This product was recommended by Daniela Sawyer from FindPeopleFast

The game had got an option of multiplayer. It’s apt only for online players. It’s pretty similar to the previous game—kind of adventure-filled one. Due to the split screening on the graphical quality, it doesn’t allow online multiplayer.

Fable II

This product was recommended by Olga Voronkova from KeyUA

A unique RPG in that its main character changes based on personality traits. The player is presented with a real-world that changes very fast as new characters and events unfold. Player’s actions have a direct impact on the planet.
