Video games are a massive source of entertainment for people of all ages. Earlier, video games
were only meant for a specific age group, mainly, 10-15 year olds. Nowadays, video games are
meant for all age groups and it is as enjoyable as anything in this world gets. Here are some of
the best and top selling video games of all time:
Grand Theft Auto 5
It is currently the third most top selling video games of all time in America. It was under
development for almost 6 years, starting from 2008 to its release in 2013. After its release, the
game was lauded for its open world, shooting mechanics, the feature to play three different
characters, and its story and graphics. The game was considered revolutionary in the video
game industry as it was said to be one of the greatest feat by Rockstar Games. The setting of
the city “Los Santos” – a replica of Los Angeles was highly appreciated. The mission style,
character development and the endings were also appreciated.
Far Cry 5
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Toronto, it was published to many video game
platforms by Ubisoft on March 27, 2018. The Far Cry series is known for its impressive first
person combat. Even though this game was released to mixed reviews, it was the fast selling
game in the franchise. Although the game was good, the mixed reviews were because of
heightened political conflicts involved. The game was severely inspired by major political events
like the Cold War and the September 11 attacks. The game was praised for its impressive
graphics, open world design, visuals and soundtracks.
L.A. Noire was a neo-noir adventure game developed by Team Bondi and was published by
Rockstar Games. It released to near critical acclaim for its advances in storytelling and use of
facial technology in games. It follows the story of a normal detective who goes on solving crimes
around Los Angeles. It is set in the year 1947. L.A. Noire was a revolutionary game released at
the time because of its impressive showcasing of facial technology. It was almost as if you’re
watching a movie. The player was supposed to tell if a victim or witness in a case was telling the
truth or not looking at their facial expressions.
After a long time, EA Sports had finally achieved in dishing out an impressive football game and
its name was FIFA 17. It released in September 2017 to all all platforms and was the most
successful FIFA game at the time. It came with improved graphics and came with more a story.
It was something that was lagging in the older FIFA games. Every player wants to see
themselves in the game and this helped them do it and that is why the game was a success.
The Story mode was called “THE JOURNEY” and was released to positive reviews.
