Wild west outlaws: Red Dead Redemption 2

Staff pick

Games like Red Dead Redemption 2 only come around once in a generation. Rockstar managed to deftly handle an emotional story full of compelling characters in a society that's quickly leaving them behind. Any number of things could have gone wrong during development (aside from its labor practices), but Red Dead Redemption 2 ended up being a masterpiece.

Survival horror: Resident Evil 2

Leon Kennedy's first day as a rookie police officer in Raccoon City doesn't exactly go according to plan thanks to a zombie outbreak that plagues its inhabitants.

Religious fanaticism: Far Cry 5

While the Far Cry franchise has historically taken you to exotic locations to fight evil warlords of some description, this new game places you in a rural part of America to take on a doomsday cult pretending to be a semi-religious town. This is a great, straightforward shooter where the bad guys resemble something you've seen on TV.

Connect the world: Death Stranding

It's hard to describe what Death Stranding is, but at its core it's a game about making connections. It just so happens that in order to do so you'll need to carry a baby in a pod strapped to your chest through monster-infested areas and other dangerous terrain.

Zombies everywhere: Days Gone

You can never go wrong with a game about the good old zombie apocalypse. Unlike Resident Evil 2, Days Gone leans more towards action/adventure than survival horror. It's just you and your motorcycle (and an arsenal of heavy weapons) versus the countless hordes in this open world game.

The story doesn't end here

Each of the above games provides a unique experience, and each shows outstanding quality in their given genre. Take a break from reality, visit faraway lands, discover new creatures in each of these games. Some of these games will let you continue the crazy stories of your favorite characters. Other games will give you many familiar aspects of older games but with newer more amazing things to discover. For example, you can't go wrong with a masterpiece like God of War. Regardless if you've played the original games or not, you can begin here.

There are other games here that are a part of established series. Spider-Man has a storyline completely separate from the comics or movies, making it a great time to join in.
