1. Far Cry 6

Developer: Ubisoft Toronto

Publisher: Ubisoft

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X

The upcoming sixth game in the Far Cry series, Far Cry 6, is a first-person shooter. Set on the fictional Caribbean island, Yara, you play guerilla fighter Dani Rojas. Players will make weapons, use vehicles, hire Amigos, and use the “Fangs for Hire” system all in service to topple a dictatorship. Anton Castillo (Giancarlo Esposito) is a fascist dictator. His son, Diego (Anthony Gonzalez) struggles with the expectations his father has placed on him. The Far Cry series has sold over 50 millions copies since 2004. Personally, I’ve only played 3 entries, but Far Cry 6 has me excited.


2. Resident Evil Village

Developer: Capcom

Publisher: Capcom

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X

The latest entry in the storied survival horror series, Resident Evil Village, is the tenth major instalment in the series. A direct sequel to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Village takes place a few years later. Chris Redfield re-enters the life of Ethan Winters, shooting his wife Mia. Ethan finds himself in a mysterious village searching for answers. I enjoyed Resident Evil 7: Biohazard until the end that felt too much like Call of Duty, abandoning the horror elements that made the game frighting. Hopefully, this next game will continue the horror aspects of the last game.


3. Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2

Developer: Nintendo

Publisher: Nintendo

Platforms: Nintendo Switch

I’m never disappointed with a Zelda game, and Breath of the Wild was no different. A launch game for the Nintendo Switch in 2017, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, received critical acclaim for its gameplay and attention to detail. Many consider the game to be one of the greatest games of all time, selling over 20 million copies, making it the highest selling video gems of all time. Nintendo announced the sequel at 2019’s E3 with Aonuma claiming that the game will “build atop the original’s world with a new story and gameplay elements.” We know little about the game and expectations are high, but Nintendo always meets the high standards.


4. God of War 2: Ragnarok

Developer: SIE Santa Monica Studio

Publisher: Sony

Platform: Playstation 4

The God of War series was first introduced on the Playstation 2 in 2005. An action-adventure game that follows Kratos, a tragic Spartan warrior tricked into killing his family by the God Ares. I was into the first two but didn’t play rest. God of War for the Playstation 4 marked my return to the series, and I wasn’t disappointed. Unlike the previous games in the series, God of War took place in the world of Norse mythology. Everyone praised the game for its art direction, graphics, combat system, characters, and cinematic feeling. The father and son relationship stood out the most to me. Having a personal love of mythology and stylish violence, God of War, is my kind of game. A sequel was never in doubt, especially considering how it ended.

5. Horizon Forbidden West

Developer: Guerrilla Games

Publisher: Sony

Platforms: Playstation 4 & 5

New ip can be hit or miss, so when Horizon Zero dawn was released in 2017, I didn’t know what to expect. The series follows the story of Aloy, a hunter in a post-apocalyptic world, the player hunts robotic creatures with stealth, traps, and arrows. The series was well received, selling over 10 million copies. I’m too impatient for stealth games like Horizon Dawn, but the story and characters kept me interested. Once you get use to the gameplay, the game become captivating. Horizon Forbidden West promises to introduce more robotic creatures and new environments. In the sequel, humanity is facing an unknown threat, and Aloy traverses unfamiliar terrain in search of answers.

  1. I was so scared watching the Resident Evil 7 playthrough on Youtube that I honestly rarely looked at my computer screen. But just from the trailer; I know that it’s going to be the EXACT SAME as back then.
    I’ve wanted to get more into the Zelda franchise- it sounds really interesting. And I really like Links design.
    But the game I’m looking forward to MOST is DEFINITELY the new “God of War” game. I loved and adored “God of War 4.” It took me a while to watch the whole game, but I finally managed to finish it. And I was floored- amazed- stunned! It was one of the most amazing games I’ve ever seen.
