Are you a gamer that is considering taking the plunge and purchasing an Xbox One or PS4? Well there’s never been a better time to upgrade, considering all of the fantastic games available these days. Here is our definitive list of the 5 best Multiplatform games currently available as of the time of this publication.
5. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
I really didn’t want to like Advanced Warfare, as I told myself that after having the willpower to skip Call of Duty Ghosts I wouldn’t be playing another Call of Duty game for a fair amount of time. Well man was I wrong, and I’ll gladly eat crow for ever making such a blasphemous statement. First off we got my main man Kevin Spacey lending his talent to the game, so you know the acting is top notch. Advanced Warfare takes a tip out of Titanfall’s book which is a great idea because everyone knows that if you’re going to steal from someone you steal from the greats. With the addition of Exo Zombies being implemented you have yourself a double win. It’s kind of a no brainer.
4. Dragon Age Inquisition
Dragon Age Inquisition continues the Bioware tradition of epic storytelling in an RPG game. Next-gen graphics usher in a whole new way to look at the Dragon Age universe and the tried and true mechanics of the series leave it feeling familiar. As always the gem of this series is the ability to craft the story into your own and to build relationships with your war-party. Honestly, will a Bioware game ever miss a Top 5 list?
3. Wolfenstein: The New Order
If you own an Xbox One or PS4 and have for some time, but you’ve never played Wolfenstein: The New Order then it’s about time you found out what you’re missing! The New Order is a great showcase of how fun an FPS can be with traditional FPS mechanics. This game ranks so high for the pleasant surprise it was- the game’s storytelling was top notch (and surprisingly heartfelt).
2. The Witcher III: Wild Hunt
I had never played a Witcher game before this third installment which I’m sure sounds like a sin to fans of the series. It certainly feels like one, because saying that this game is good would be the understatement of the year. The mature subject matter and moral ambiguity of your actions makes The Witcher III: Wild Hunt feel like a romp through a Zelda game if Hyrule were Westeros from Game of Thrones and Link were more of a badass like Chuck Norris. Wild Hunt is a game that gives Skyrim a run for its money, and once Skyrim runs itself out of breath, The Witcher III takes that money and keeps on going. Wild Hunt is a very serious Game of the Year contender for 2015 and a true RPG force to be reckoned with.
1. Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor
This is a fantastic game that has the Lord of the Rings name attached to it, which makes it that much cooler. You play as a fallen Ranger named Talion that is granted powers and partners with Celebrimbor to seek revenge on Sauron’s forces. In Shadow of Mordor you run around and open-world Middle-Earth slaughtering Orcs left and right, and each time you are slain in battle, the orc that killed you will rise up the ranks of Sauron’s army. It’s a pretty simple premise, but man is it fun and addicting playing with the nemesis system.
