Who doesn't love a good dungeon crawling adventure?

16. Titan Quest Anniversary Edition

Titan Quest Anniversary Edition combines the original Titan Quest and Titan Quest Immortal Throne and combines them and adds a wealth of content in a free update for the 10th anniversary. Multiplayer functionality has been restored and improved, more resolutions are supported, along with generally improved performance and stability.

There’s increased challenges and rewards for higher difficulty levels, improved AI and dozens of new heroes and bosses. Characters are highly customizable with 28 classes and over 1000 pieces of unique, legendary loot. Plus, you can make your own maps.

Finally something other than a forest.

Please tell me they're not fishing.

15. Shadows Heretic Kingdoms

Shadows Heretic Kingdoms comes in two parts, Books I and II. The first is already available, and the second is a free update to the initial game. There are two worlds in this story; the world of mortals and the world of shadows, where the demons live. The game is fully voice acted with multiple endings and weighty decisions.

Between the story and the party system there is a total of fifteen characters to play. The gameplay is much the same as other clicker dungeon crawlers, but the meat is in the story.

Whatever it is I didn't do it!


14. Gauntlet™ Slayer Edition


The Slayer Edition of Gauntlet is a free update for those who already own the game on PC. It adds a new Endless mode to the endless waves of enemies you’ll fight leading up to the big boss, daily challenges and new clothes for your character.

The combat has been ramped up as well. Weapons change the abilities that each character has, although these skills do have to be purchased individually.

I love the smell of giblets in the morning.

Mind the lava.

13. Legend of Grimrock

Legend of Grimrock is a throwback to the old style of RP dungeon crawlers with a rather claustrophobic feel. The detail in the game world is gorgeous, and there’s plenty of hidden things to find. Movement is tile based, and while the game will create a map for you, you have the option to turn it off and break out a piece of graph paper and a pencil and do it for yourself. You start as a group of four prisoners, thrown into the pit of a mountain. If you escape you’re free, if not… well you’re dead. There’s a map editor and the ability to customize player character portraits as well, and there’s a lot of both out there.

When I said stick them with the pointy end I didn't mean stick me!

Maybe he just wants a hug?

12. Magicka

My experience with Magicka pretty much consists of my friend and I blowing each other up and never actually getting past the first boss. I did try to play on my own but ultimately decided that it was a lot more fun (and easier) with friends.

There are a lot of spells in this game and it’s very difficult to remember them all and there’s a very good chance that you’ll blow yourself up in addition to the thing you’re trying to kill. There’s also a 300 reference. Make of that what you will.

Ha ha you can't get me.

My fave kind of explosion.

11. Magicka 2

Magicka on steroids, basically. Magicka 2 boosts the spellcasting system with an insane number of spells, most of which you can discover on your own without needing to find all the spellbooks if you don’t mind blowing yourself up one or ten times. It’s important to know which spells you need for which situations, however, which can be a bit intimidating when some goblins are chewing on your ankles.

It’s hard work to get all those spells down instead of just spamming a pathetic little Ghostbusters beam, but when you pull it off, especially if it’s just by the skin of your teeth, there’s really no feeling in the world like standing in the bloody giblets of what were once those annoying little goblins.

Great balls of fire!

Do not cross the beams.

10. Divinity Original Sin 2

While still in early access, Divinity Original Sin 2 promises to be a worthy sequel to the original. Once again, players can choose stats, race, origin story and appearance. Dialogue and quests change depending on the player character’s backstory. There’s skill crafting and a cover system to change up the combat a bit. A new feature is called “Love & Hate,” allowing relationships to be established with other characters in the game. For you social beings out there, there’s up to 4 player co-op and competitive multiplayer.

We wouldn't be here if you had just asked for directions.

This isn't a game of the floor is lava.

9. Elder Scrolls Online

Many people still have mixed feelings about ESO, but there’s one thing that can’t be denied; real-time, skill based (for the most part) combat makes dungeons a hell of a lot more fun. ESO has three types of dungeons; Delves, Public Dungeons and Group Dungeons. Delves are split into solo and group as well. Each questing zone has at least one Public Dungeon, which any player can enter at any time, which have quests bosses, mini bosses, and a group even boss. Group dungeons work much like the dungeons in WoW, with normal and veteran modes, and special story mode dungeons, each with normal and veteran modes.

Group pose time.

I don't think fighting by that is a good idea.
