11. Destiny 2

Destiny 2 Story Gameplay

Taking a substantial step away from the horror and more towards straight-up sci-fi action, Destiny 2 is the refined follow-up to the massively successful original. Like its predecessor, Destiny 2 is an online-only ‘shared world’ experience—meaning you’ll run into other players, but it’s entirely up to you how you interact with them (or ignore them entirely).

In a future where the Earth has become a deadly nightmare with only one remaining sanctuary for civilization, you take up the role of a Guardian—tasked with the protection of Earth’s remaining peaceful citizens as well as waging battle against the ever-threatening alien species wreaking havoc across the galaxy. You choose from 3 class options (Titan, Hunter, and Warlock), each possessing their own unique abilities to be upgraded and customized, and make use of a bewildering variety of weapons (all waiting to be looted or purchased).

Each class is designed to complement the others, so although going solo is always an option, teaming up with others for Destiny’s famous raids is always rewarding—especially when combined with a tactical yet fast-paced style of combat that makes blowing through hordes of enemies an absolute delight.

Defend the tower!: the tactical dynamics of combat are perhaps a bit more complex than others on this list, but it’s so well done that blasting through an onslaught of aliens is never dull.

For loot’s sake: the constant cycle of seeking better and better loot is as present as ever, and the sheer variety is quite impressive.
