#1) The 5 Best Action-Adventure Games
- Sea of Thieves - If you have the soul of a pirate, Sea of Thieves is for you. In this title, you go on an adventure aboard your boat, alone or accompanied by your friends. It transports you right into the heart of an open world where you can complete missions, steal loot, and navigate the high seas taking care of various aspects of your building. If you are sensitive to this kind of epic environment, don't wait any longer, and don't hesitate to put on the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack to complete the immersion.
- Death's Door - Death's Door is an atypical game as we like them. One of the best indie nuggets of 2021 in our opinion, the title puts you in the shoes of a crow whose job is to accompany the souls of the dead. A simple mission, as long as powerful monsters don't stand in your way for no reason. With its gloomy atmosphere and intense fights, you are not likely to be disappointed with the trip.
- Hades - With Hades, you can't go wrong. For many, it is the game of the year 2020 as it caused a sensation with players but also with critics. In this game, you play as the son of Hades and Persephone, who somehow tries to save his mother from his father's clutches. A mission rooted in modernized Greek mythology, which also promises you a good dose of action. We particularly appreciate its narration, enhanced by original graphics.
- No Man's Sky - No Man's Sky is The ultimate adventure game. In this title, you turn into a space explorer, while you have to learn more about the planet on which you land. It's the equivalent of a Sea of Thieves, but on an intergalactic scale. Whichever class you choose, you'll have to deal with your surroundings to unravel the mystery of the center of the galaxy.
- Far: Changing Tides - We end with Far Changing Tides, the second installment in the franchise. Don't panic, you don't need to have played Far first to appreciate or understand this game. You play as a young boy who sails in search of a new home aboard a boat like no other. A journey as physical as it is spiritual for a most poetic epic. An adventure that will not leave you indifferent.
