Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition

This product was recommended by Mimi Paul from Starkflow

The Witcher 3 is a landmark game in several ways. No other video game has made me feel the consequences of my decisions as this one. It’s a game where you weigh every choice because the wrong one could end up killing somebody. The Witcher 3 is set in a gorgeous open world rife with activity and quests. Before long you find yourself immersed in this game. If you’re looking for a game that just keeps you hooked with limitless lore and hundreds of diverse locations this is the one you should go for, no doubt the best of the eight-generation games, period!

Assassin Creed Valhalla

This product was recommended by Katy Smith from Airgram

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla may not immediately jump out when considering the best 8th generation games to play, but it certainly jumps out when you think about the best games to play. The game set during the Viking Invasion is a hair-raising, spellbinding conglomeration of amazing gameplay, astounding graphics, and historical depiction. The earlier versions of Assassin’s creed may come to your brain, but they don’t come close to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla in my opinion.

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut

This product was recommended by Linda G Thompson from

Disco Elysium is the kind of game you don’t want to mention when working, because you’ll be instantly tempted to switch off your PC and go play. Everyone thinks that you can’t go any further when you hit bedrock, but this game lets you do it. It’s not just about the motivation, or the fact that the game lets you become anything you want. In my case, this game offers a constant dose of excitement because it allows me to become what I naturally won’t be under any other citation. Everything about this game would probably be a failure were it set into any other, but Elysium makes impossibilities real, and it allows you to break them down.

The Last of Us

This product was recommended by Michael Jan Baldicana from bidetsPLUS

The Last of Us is a critically acclaimed video game that revolves around two characters – Joel and Ellie who try to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. The Last of Us was praised for its narrative, which many critics consider to be one of the best 8th generation video game stories ever told. It also received high praise for its gameplay and graphics, with critics praising its unique approach to the survival horror genre.

Red Dead Redemption 2

This product was recommended by Joseph Greene from Trinidad Birding

The 8th Gen has given us some brilliant games and easily some of the best games of all time. My top-tier game from the 8th Gen has to be Red Dead Redemption 2. It hits all of the boxes for world-building, story, and gameplay mechanics and has been one of the few games I would give a 10/10. I have already played it through 3 times and due to the mechanics of the game no time has been the same and it has truly been a refreshing playthrough.

Another highly popular action-adventure game. The game is vast as the maps are huge, and the player will get enough cool stuff to make the game more interactive and exciting. After every step, the payer will get full action and surprises from jeep to stealth. You can also play this game with your friends online.

God of War

This product was recommended by Lorie Carson from RealPeopleFinder

It is one of the most popular and highly rated 8th generation games. The game is highly engaging, and its excellent graphics and storyline make it more interactive. The game is based on the story of Father and Son, who fights through the game to fulfill a personal quest. The creatures, characters, and other game elements make it more realistic and exciting.

Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition

Horizon Zero Dawn is an action role-playing game with HD graphics. Alloy, the main character of the game is a young huntress who combats mechanical creatures by using a spear, ranged weapons, and stealth power. As the game progresses, the player gets new abilities and bonuses with a skill tree and discovers new locations.

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

This product was recommended by Michael Rose from Union Law Firm

Like my comedy hero Robin Williams, I’m a dedicated and devoted Legend of Zelda fan, so there was only ever going to one eighth-generation game that topped my list of go-to titles to play, And it is? You guessed it, the latest and greatest Zelda adventure, Breath of the Wild.

Grand Theft Auto V

This product was recommended by Jason Cordes from CocoLoan

Open-world game from Rockstar. Explore the beautiful worlds of Los Santos and Blaine County in the Ultimate Grand Theft Auto V experience, which includes various technical updates and refinements for both new and returning players. Also available on the XBOX and PC platforms.

Rainbow Six Siege

This product was recommended by Lyle Florez from EasyPeopleSearch

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is my favorite game of the generation, or at the very least, the best representation of what this generation of gaming represented for the industry’s future. Siege began life as a whole game, dubbed Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6: Patriots, before being shelved in favor of an exclusively competitive multiplayer game featuring cutting-edge environmental destruction and manipulation tools.

NieR Automata

This product was recommended by Lyle Florez from EasyPeopleSearch

Because of what it signifies for the future generation, NieR Automata is my game of the generation. The brilliance of Yoko Taro is on full display throughout, and it’s an obtuse voyage – the kind that will turn off as many people as it would fascinate. However, the fact that NieR: Automata is still enjoyed and discussed by thousands of fans years after its release is proof that thinking beyond the box isn’t limited in scope. Even if it doesn’t feel as certain as something sufficiently dark and violent like The Last Of Us, doing it correctly will bring in a large audience.
