Grand Theft Auto V

This product was recommended by Christina Green from My Speech Class

Theft Auto V is a role-playing game. The player can progress further in the game by completing missions linear scenarios with specific goals. Outside of tasks, players can explore the open world.

Shadow of the Colossus

This product was recommended by Max Benz from Remote-Job

My personal favorite 6th generation game would have to be Shadow of the Colossus. The graphics were stunning for its time, and the premise of the game (destroying 16 colossi in order to resurrect a girl) was incredibly unique. The controls were also very well done, and I never felt frustrated with them. Overall, it’s an excellent game and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good PS2 or PS3 title.

Shin Megami Tensei

This product was recommended by Christina Green from My Speech Class

This is an intriguing game. A fresh student is assigned to a school where monsters strike at night. A group of Persona users recruits him to fight with them to cleanse the world of monsters finally.

Kingdom Hearts

This product was recommended by Tim Connon from ParamountQuote Insurance Advisors

This is one of the most memorable 6th generation games known throughout the gaming world. This was the game I played four hours when I was a kid because of the awesome compelling story it offered as well as the graphics. This game is an absolute classic and I highly recommend it.

Burnout 3 Takedown

This product was recommended by Kimberly Silva from FindPeopleFirst

Burnout 3 Takedown is the best 6th gen game as it rewrites the rules of the road with its aggressive racing action. The game allows you to experience 40 different tracks across three continents and has spectacular crash technology with extreme detail. You are even awarded for creating the most massive pileups. Fight your way to the front of the pack by using your car as a weapon to take down rivals. It has more than 70 cars from 12 different classes, ranging from European exotics to American muscle cars, buses, semi-trucks, sports cars, and mid-size sports sedans. With up to six participants, the game has an online action with only seven modes.

Onimusha 3 Demon Siege

This product was recommended by Kimberly Silva from FindPeopleFirst

Onimusha 3 Demon Siege consists of two warriors, united in a battle spanning time and the globe. One is from ancient Japan and the other from modern-day France. The characters combat against hordes of demons seeking to destroy the earth. Their weapons and skills are upgraded through the course of the game. Demon siege relies heavily on timing and strategy to master each of the warriors. In the game, the enemies offer more variety, the control is more precise, and the elemental weaponry is extremely varied.

Half-Life 2

This product was recommended by Ashley Amor from PeopleFindFast

So, I recently constructed a new computer with high-quality components. Half-Life 2 was the first game I purchased, and I must say that it more than lives up to the expectations. When people talk about fantastic first-person shooter games, I finally understand what they’re talking about. Graphics are fantastic, with lovely backdrops. There are no issues with me at all. There are no jaggies or ghosting. All of my graphic settings are set to high. The graphics card I’m using is an EVGA getForce 6800GS, and the processor I’m using is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+. Objects move and behave like they would in real life. Tires squeal, metal screams, glass shatters, and so on. Great storyline: I enjoy how it keeps the plot going forward.

Sea of Thieves

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

Since its release on Xbox and Windows, Sea of Thieves has seemed more like a sandbox than a game, and I mean that in the nicest way possible. Those typically spectacular weather and sea effects truly come to life on Xbox Series X.

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

You’ve undoubtedly heard of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice if you’re a glutton for torture. It looks better than ever on the Xbox Series X, and it performs like a dream with liquid-smooth action at 60 frames per second. If you’ve been debating whether or not to try it, now is the moment.

Outriders Day One Edition

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

The plot is shallow, but the entertaining and fast-paced gameplay more than compensates. Explore a strange world with other players and protect the colonists who have settled there, all while using magical skills to annihilate your foes.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

I can’t stop chanting praises for Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla like a skald with a melody stuck in her brain. That might be because I have a thing for the protagonist, Eivor Wolf-Kissed, but that’s beside the point: the newest installment in the Assassin’s Creed series is just a killer game in general..

Hitman 3

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

The current Hitman series, and the third entry, in particular, is a great return to form. I’d recommend starting with the first two games because the plot continues there, but Hitman 3 goes above and above in terms of utilizing the Xbox Series X’s potential.

Metal Arms: Glitch in the System

This product was recommended by Shiv Gupta from Incrementors

Swingin’ Ape Studios’ first (and only) game is a third-person shooter featuring fast-paced action and a fantastic sense of humor. The story follows Glitch, an amnesiac robot who finds himself in the middle of a conflict against a tyrant robot army. During his adventure, the glitch can employ approximately 20 different weapons. Glitch employs a variety of weapons, including slingshots and saw blades, in addition to the standard machine guns, flamethrowers, and grenades. Glitch’s most inventive weapon allows him to inhabit the bodies of his foes. Although there are over 50 stages to complete, the game’s destructible landscapes, many weapon upgrades, and the option to drive multiple vehicles to keep things interesting and prevent the action from becoming too repetitive. Exploration is rewarded in the game, as locating hidden regions allows players to unlock additional multiplayer levels.

Mario kart: Double Dash!!

This product was recommended by Natalie Maximets from OnlineDivorce

Mario Kart: Double Dash was released on November 1, 2003, as the fourth installment in the Mario Kart franchise. It is a fun racing game with a lot of modes and challenges. The aesthetics are adorable, and the gameplay is incredibly fluid. This is the game for you if you enjoy challenges and being at the top. The game’s background music and speed boosters add an extra level of fun.

Resident Evil 4

This product was recommended by Chiara Gomiero from HandyWineGuide

What makes Resident Evil 4 one of the best 6th generation games is that it isn’t just your usual RPG, it’s much more. It introduced a new horror video games era with a unique atmosphere to its plot, graphic, characters, and so on, which gave it a long list of praisings, including the “Best Videogames Of All Time”.

Final Fantasy X

This product was recommended by Chiara Gomiero from HandyWineGuide

The release of Final Fantasy X was welcoming news for all those Final Fantasy gamers who were after something spectacular post the release of Final Fantasy VII. The wow factor that comes with it is primarily driven by the graphical innovations that made it one of the most graphically spectacular games of all time that created an immersive atmosphere for the player.

Halo: Combat Evolved

This product was recommended by Chiara Gomiero from HandyWineGuide

It’s almost impossible not to mention the Halo series in this Best Of list. Halo revolutionized the gaming industry from various points of view, but most notably because it was the “Most Revolutionary First Person Shooters”. The level of graphical complexity and intricacy, perfectly balanced with new mechanics and game modes made a huge success for Microsoft, which de facto anticipated the rise of the first-person shooter as the new “big thing” in gaming.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

This product was recommended by James “Jimmy” Watts from Own The Grill

I’m a die-hard gamer and a Star Wars fanboy, and this collision of two of the greatest passions in my life was the perfect symbiosis of both. It’s an adventure in that galaxy far, far away, and every single time I play it, a tingle goes up my spine and my pulse begins to pound a little harder.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

This product was recommended by KARIM from Dehumidifier Depot

With its sturdy story, literary dialogue, terrific voice cast, spectacular graphics, nice in-game sound, and intensely amusive and varied gameplay, stealing Auto: San Andreas could be a prodigious thrill ride that shouldn’t be missed.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

This product was recommended by Erica Tan from Best in Singapore

Like Final Fantasy X, perhaps the only surprise to Super Smash Bros. Melee’s appearance here is that something besides the tenth Final Fantasy installment beat it. Super Smash Bros. Melee comes as a sequel to the hit Nintendo 64 game Super Smash Bros., and maintains the same appeal while drastically increasing the body of gameplay options available. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of Super Smash Bros. Melee’s inclusion this high on this list is that it is by far the only one of its kind to rank this high on any list — where platformers once ruled, RPGs took over and first-person shooters are now emerging, Super Smash Bros. Melee stands quite uniquely apart from the rest. In line with this large difference from the other comparably often-recognized games is that Super Smash Bros. Melee is listed for a very different selection of features.
