Grim Fandango

This product was recommended by Daniel Hess from To Tony Productions

A classic staple of old school adventure games has to be Grim Fandango. With a unique day of the dead style setting and that classic LucasArts humor thrown in, this is a great game you can’t miss. Luckily they have released a more modernized remaster of the game for newer consoles, so it isn’t very hard to get your hands on, especially digitally. Give it a try and walk away a better gamer for it.

There are tons of cool stuff to get, addicting boss battles, and extraordinary characters and backgrounds. Sonic Jump has got to be the best sonic game ever on kindle fire. This game is probably the best sonic game released to the Kindle where levels aren’t too easy or too hard. This game is no exception! I would recommend it to other Sonic fans!


Final Fantasy VII: Remake

This product was recommended by Tim Connon from ParamountQuote Insurance Advisors

I am suggesting this product because there is nothing like Final Fantasy VII from its amazing story and hours of gameplay and the stunning visual effects, graphics, and action. this game has everything and the fact that it has been remade with fast-paced combat and new cinematics makes it a must-have.

Uncharted 4 is one of the most iconic and best adventure games ever. The game features stellar graphics and animation to immerse you in its stunning world. Alongside this, Uncharted 4 has great gameplay, with many different weapons and melee attacks to help you on your quest to find treasure with the game’s main character, Nathan Drake. Uncharted 4 crafts a rich storyline for you to follow as the game progresses, adding to its already great resume.


Marvel’s Guardian of the Galaxy

This product was recommended by Brian Lee from Drill and Driver

Though the characters didn’t look much like the actors, the graphics is very good and full of details. I love that it has many comedic elements just like the movie itself that will make you laugh while playing. The game is very entertaining that each character has their own special abilities and can be used even outside battle like if you need a bridge, you can call Groot and make one for you. It also has choices and options that you need to choose from and will have effects throughout the game so better choose wisely. Since different choices gives different sequences and events, you will have also a different experience when you replay the game and made other choices.


Unbound: Worlds Apart

This product was recommended by Harriet Chan from CocoFinder

Unbound: Worlds Apart has a superb and beautiful Metroidvania-style gameplay that tests both the head and reflexes. A little twitchy for serious adventure gamers, but anybody who likes action with their puzzles will adore the stunning graphic design and well-balanced gameplay.


There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension

This product was recommended by Harriet Chan from CocoFinder

There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension rewrites the rules of what a game may and should accomplish, thus revolutionizing the medium. It will remind you why you play games while asking you to contemplate what that means. It’s constantly humorous, entertaining, and unique.


Dragon City

This product was recommended by Paul Miller from CBD4Beginners

Dragon City has all the normal building fare: plenty of things to buy in the marketplace, rare items for sale or auction, crafting materials galore, but it is finished with sparkles and glitter instead of grit. Don’t get me wrong; Dragon City still requires planning and strategy – you can’t just race through it like Candy Crush (though there is plenty of matching), but this game has the best open-world environment I’ve seen in a while! There’s enough to do in this game that I feel like I’m actually in a fun story filled with dragons. The social aspect is strong, too. There are several ways to connect with friends in Dragon City: gift giving, visiting each other’s cities, sending messages, or even sending dragons back and forth between your cities to breed rare dragons!


Thunderworks Games Twk2000 Roll Player

The game is based on its captivating book by Brandon Sanderson and comes with 120 cards with iconic scenes from the novel.

Control

This product was recommended by Stephen Curry from CocoSign

Developed in 2019, it is an action-adventure game that explores diverse environments in an unpredictable, impressively thought-out world. Control is fascinating and features combat abilities that are fun to use. The characters in the game are distinct, engaging and they make absolute sense in their environments and roles.


Kentucky Route Zero

This product was recommended by Stephen Curry from CocoSign

This is a point-and-click adventure game that is both bizarre and dreamlike. It follows the American dream of Conway, a delivery man who is a Kentucky native living on Route Zero. He meets strangers dealing with challenging issues as the game unfolds through player choices that advance or alter the narrative. This game will stick with you for a while longer after you finish it.

Since the lead character is a former hunter himself, he has to gain the trust of those who were formerly his prey.

It’s one of the most ambitious and expansive games in recent memory; you can join outlaw Arthur Morgan and his horse on a voyage through the waning days of the Western frontier. You play as a member of Dutch van der Linde’s famed gang, alongside a younger version of the original Red Dead protagonist John Marston, and can ride freely across the vast American terrain. The choice is yours as you lasso your way through one adventure after another.


Marvel’s Spider-Man

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

When it came out on PS4 in 2018, it was a huge hit. Marvel’s Spider-Man was the perfect reminder that one of the greatest and most relatable heroes of all time was always simply a kid from Queens. Insomniac Games’ Spidey provides the most familiar portrayal of Peter Parker ever – as an impoverished graduate just trying to pay his rent (and save the city he loves from supervillains). Marvel’s Spider-Man is an incredible dive into NYC’s beloved web slinger with hours of plot, amusing and moving side missions, and meticulous attention to detail.

Grim Fandango

This product was recommended by Scott McKinney from Debt Bombshell

There’s nothing better than a game that excels in dialogue, character and imagination. These are exactly the reasons why Grim Fandango is my favorite. This cleverly-realized game with world set in the mexican land of the dead, has dimensions of crime and corruption as well as film noir influences making it engaging for anyone playing it. Starred by the finest protagonist, Manny Calavera whose role is to save the woman he thought he wronged. Effortlessly, you will like Manny’s character in this adventure game

It is one of the best adventure games of 2021 for its high bar levels. It is an action-adventure game with great characters like Couple in Berlin, Argentina, and various places. It is a marvelous game for those who work from home or live at home for most of the day.

The Walking Dead

This product was recommended by Sally Stevens from FastPeopleSearch

This is such a great game! If you’re a zombie fan, a Walking Dead fan, or enjoy the slow burn of a story-intensive game this is right up your alley! My son introduced me to this game, and I was instantly hooked. I’m not a big video game fan, but I have my favorites, and this is now one of the top ones. I spent several days utterly sick on the sofa after Christmas with my son playing this game through to the end and it made the time fly by, which is hard to do when you feel like you are so sick that you very well might have a cough Ebola! lol, But it is an enthralling game. The characters are fun, intriguing, and you really begin to care for them which is a great accomplishment. The story unfolds in real-time, more or less, and the choices you are presented with are sometimes heart-wrenching but fascinating! I really do love this game.


Broken Sword Complete

This product was recommended by Alina Clark from CocoDoc

It’s a great game, I’m enjoying it. I recommend this game to all adventure game lovers. The good news is they brought the click and go controls back for broken sword 4 so all’s good again. It’s because of the 3rd game that I only give it 4 stars as the rest are brilliant and will give you hours of wonderful and challenging play. Highly Recommended.


Lost Judgement

This product was recommended by Bridgette Witte from Culinary Debates

The sequel to Judgement, which was released in 2018, is Lost Judgement.

A thrilling experience, this game will keep players hooked for hours a day.
