6. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 | PS5

The spider-man 2018’s Insomniac is still Marvel’s best game, and Miles Morales’ follow-up was stellar, too. All we’ve seen of the sequel is a teaser of both spider-men facing off against Venom, but between this series and Ratchet & Clank the team has proven worthy of our trust and anticipation.

5. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor | PC, PS5, Xbox Series

The games of Star Wars have a faltering recent history, but Fallen Order 2019 was great; mixing an original post-prequel story with challenging lightsaber combat and a host of planets to explore.

Four. resident evil 4 | PC, PS4/5, Xbox Series

Capcom has already made amazing remakes of RE2 Y RE3, so horror fans expect him to do just as well with RE4, a much bigger, more ambitious, and almost universally beloved adventure from 2005 that influenced a generation of hair-raising shooters (like dead spacewhich coincidentally is also remade this year).

3. final fantasy 16 | PS5

Returning to the original fantasy aesthetic of the series — unlike the glitter of XV or the steampunk VII Remake —, the last final fantasy takes an action approach to combat, adapting his magic and summons to a flashy fighting system more akin to that of Devil May Cry.
