Ranking the best video games of all time is certainly a daunting task. The topic is very subjective and there are so many video games across different genres to choose from.

There are plenty of video game rankings available online. But it’s really hard to believe these rankings because they’re based on the reviews of critics. It’s worth noting though that many of these critics only play video games to review them. Some don’t even bother playing the actual game before reviewing and ranking video games.

But if you’re a true gamer who’s simply looking to enjoy a fun and immersive gaming experience, you’ll certainly relate to the list of best video games of all time below.

Call of Duty franchise

You can never forget about the Call of Duty series when it comes to war games. It is the best-selling first-person shooter game series and the most successful video game franchise created in the US alone.

What makes the Call of Duty franchise really good? Well, it offers a certain level of complexity which keeps gamers coming back to play it over and over again. The single-player campaigns are so immersive as they allow you to experience what it feels like to be a soldier in the middle of a war.

The first Call of Duty games was set in World War II, but over time, the series has launched new games that are set during the Cold War, futuristic timelines, and even outer space.

Since the first Call of Duty game was released in 2003, the series has gone on to launch 18 games under the franchise, with the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War being the most recent. Call of Duty is also a mainstay in esports thanks to the popularity of their multiplayer games. Call of Duty: Warzone is the free-to-play battle royale version of the game which is widely popular across the globe. It’s so easy to play, especially if you use it with a Warzone aimbot.

Red Dead Redemption 2

No other game from the previous generation has made gamers feel more nostalgic as Red Dead Redemption 2. Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel to the 2010 game, Red Dead Redemption.

The game is set in 1899 and follows an outlaw, Arthur Morgan, as he deals with the decline of the Wild West era while attempting to survive against rival outlaws, government forces, and other adversaries.

The game perfectly reflects life at the turn-of-the-20th-century America. The game also features a scenic and sprawling open-world that is a fictionalized representation of the Western, Midwestern, and Southern United States. It transports gamers to a world where everything looks so alive. The NPCs go about their daily routines as the sun rises and sets. The wilderness is also brimming with wildlife at every turn.

Gamers can spend hours of gameplay just exploring the picturesque landscape, treasure hunting, sightseeing, or hunting wild animals. The story of the game is also equally compelling in that it can easily make you feel sympathetic with the protagonist. Rockstar really did well in coming up with a game that stands on its own class.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

If you’re looking for a video game that best suits the word “perfect”, it should be The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The Witcher 3 is so fully realized that it will certainly alter your gaming experience when playing open-world role-playing games.

The game is so enormous that it’ll take you hundreds of hours before you can fully explore and finish its storyline. It offers the perfect combination of storytelling, graphics, and gameplay in one package that no other open-world game will be able to replicate again.

What makes The Witcher 3 so immersive though is its narrative which can greatly change depending on your choices and actions throughout the game. The more you play, the more you become immersed in the game. Because of the success of the game, it has even spawned a television series that aired on Netflix.

The Witcher 3 is simply an all-timer in its genre and gamers will never probably see anything like it again soon.

Final thoughts

With thousands of games being played around the world on different platforms, there’s a huge amount of competition in the video game industry, and it has led to some pretty amazing and innovative games being developed. Gamers would then be able to put all of their skill and experience levels to the test by going up against other players from all over the world who have mastered every skill possible to win the game.
