It’s no secret that a lot of games were inspired by the films or books.

First release: 26 October 2018

Genre: Action-adventure

Developed by Rockstar Studios and published by Rockstar Games, Red Dead Redemption is the third entry in the Red Dead video games series. But unlike the vast majority of third releases, the game is not a sequel to the second entry: it is a prequel to the 2010 game Red Dead Redemption. This game is an excellent choice for those who like the titles in Western style. 

Red Dead Redemption 2 can be played from both perspectives: first and third-person. As a player, you control one of the members of the Van der Linde gang — Arthur Morgan. Help him to complete a number of dangerous missions and win the game!

Alien: Isolation

Alien: Isolation gameplay

First release: 7 October 2014

Genre: Action-adventure, stealth, survival horror

Do you like old fantasy movies? If yes, you most probably watched Alien that was filmed in 1979. It started the horror fiction series that formed the basis of the Aliens: Isolation game plot. But the events described in the title are set 15 years after what happened in the film. Although Alien: Isolation was released 5 years ago, it still remains one of the most favorite titles of our team. 

Similar to the series, the game belongs to the horror genre with the elements of stealth. You need to turn on all your creativity to become more resourceful, bold and fast than the aliens. For this, use not only weapons available in your arsenal such as flamethrower but also other useful tools. For example, motion tracker. We are sure that you will definitely like this game if you like the horror genre. 

Forza Horizon 4

First release: 2 October 2018

Genre: Racing

One of our designers is really passionate about racing games. His favorite game is Need For Speed Underground 2. But as it is a pretty old title, he tried to find something that will replace this game. He played a number of games and, finally, found a worthy replacement for Need For Speed Underground 2. That is why if you are looking for the best racing games, we really advise you to pay attention to Forza Horizon 4. 

Developed by Playground Games, it features an open-world environment that imitates the British areas. There are more than 450 licensed cars and a lot of exciting opportunities. For example, you can create your own races. 

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Genre: Action-adventure

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is one of the newest games on our list. Released in March 2019, the title focuses on stealth mechanics, combat, boss battles, and area exploration. By the way, although the vast majority of location is fictional, some of them were inspired by the real-world areas in Japan. 

Choosing this game for playing, you need to prepare yourself that Sekiro features really challenging tasks. Moreover, compared to other role-playing games, there is a lack of some elements. For example, there is no ability to level up a variety of stats or to play in a multiplayer mode. But despite this, the game is really worth your attention!
