15 Best Current-Gen Action Games You Need To Play [PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch]

Over time, action games have continued to evolve – from the 2D-platformer-centric designs of the past to the more varied offerings that the gaming public has access to today. To say nothing of games in general, with so many action games out there, it can be difficult to choose which ones to play and enjoy.

We’d like to recommend a handful for our audience to play – and we hope that this list is applicable not only to newcomers to gaming or to the genre itself, but also to more savvy gamers in general. This list has been narrowed down to games released within this current generation, rather than spanning across the great history of gaming itself. So without further ado – the 15 Best Action Games of the Current Generation that You Need to Play.

    What about assassins creed odyssey

  2. Twigg4075 on March 26, 2020 at 12:30 pm

    LOL. Only one of these games is exclusive to Xbox.

  3. Daves GoldenDuck on March 26, 2020 at 12:31 pm

    Sad how there were only 2 exclusives on XBOX ONE. Man Microsoft doesn’t make any action games any more except 2

  4. Ashesh Samaroo on March 26, 2020 at 12:31 pm

    It would have been nice to see Rise of the tomb raider on the list

  5. Scuppa F on March 26, 2020 at 12:32 pm

    In summary… buy a PS4.

  6. Cummins_Dood on March 26, 2020 at 12:33 pm

    Bayonetta 2

  7. Patrick Smith on March 26, 2020 at 12:33 pm

    Farcry 5!

  8. Matthew Corcoran on March 26, 2020 at 12:34 pm

    So many ps4 exclusives. Love it!!

  9. supraj hegde on March 26, 2020 at 12:34 pm

    Where’s’BIG CHUNGUS’???

  10. Gentleman Gamer on March 26, 2020 at 12:35 pm

    You forgot Tearaway and Gravity Rush 2

  11. Maximillion Roivas on March 26, 2020 at 12:38 pm

    Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice
    DmC: Devil May Cry
    Vampyr
    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

  12. Damin Ahmad on March 26, 2020 at 12:43 pm

    Why so less views on your awesome content? YouTube algos suck.

  13. Travis Graham on March 26, 2020 at 12:44 pm

    I have every game on the list except nioh, bloodborne, dark souls 3 and nier: automata. Had them but they were all too hard. Except nier. Nier’s just not interesting to me.

  14. Three Cats on March 26, 2020 at 12:46 pm

    How can anyone like MGS5. Credits after every mission. A 1.5 hour start cut-scene with occasional RTS. Admin of staff; (I am totally lost with that). Short missions. Shaky camera when running. Raspy radio chatter and that dumb woman, banging on at you. I keep trying but every single time I try to play, it annoys me instantly.

  15. gioandroid83 on March 26, 2020 at 12:46 pm

    No Breath of the Wild (Action Adventure) and Bayonetta 2 (Action)? Really? And you dare put Switch in your title.

  16. James Rouse on March 26, 2020 at 12:48 pm

    I own nearly all of these games, and I must say that I fully endore and agree with this lengthy yet not fully comprehensive list!

  17. Bruce Wayne's Boss on March 26, 2020 at 12:48 pm

    No love for ANY of the 3 Wolfenstein games??? Seriously, I haven’t enjoyed playing the campaigns of games as much as those 3! You would have to pay ME to play some of the games on this list! Terrible!

  18. KuorivaBanaani on March 26, 2020 at 12:51 pm

    Sunset Overdrive!

  19. Chandima Suriyapperuma on March 26, 2020 at 12:51 pm

    The problem in Assassin creed is that we always treat the game as an action adventure game but not as a RPG. Not to mention we miss Altair and enzio

  20. Top 01 on March 26, 2020 at 12:55 pm

    I regret buying mgs5 .. i never liked it

  21. JR Patilan Gaming on March 26, 2020 at 12:56 pm

    Witcher 3 is one of the best in this generation

  22. Old School Gamer on March 26, 2020 at 12:56 pm

    Can’t believe you didn’t include a tomb Raider shadow of the Colossus or far cry five

  23. Christin Holmes on March 26, 2020 at 12:58 pm

    No Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus………..adds Conceited gif

  24. Dj Groopz on March 26, 2020 at 12:59 pm

    Great list but how is gears of war that high though

  25. Ry-L Williams on March 26, 2020 at 1:01 pm

    Gears 4 is epic trash

  26. juan barnaby dominguez carvalho on March 26, 2020 at 1:03 pm

    so basically… all ps4 exclusives and a couple more games.

  27. Jason on March 26, 2020 at 1:03 pm

    Nier: Automata is a must play, brilliant game. Do yourself a favor and check it out!

  28. Sai Hodgkinson-Aughterson on March 26, 2020 at 1:07 pm

    What about farcry 3,4 or 5

  29. Captain RJ on March 26, 2020 at 1:07 pm

    Titanfall 2/ Doom best FPS of the decade

  30. kdesigner07 on March 26, 2020 at 1:08 pm

    All of these games are awesome. I have every last one and I love them all!!!

  31. Shub Negroroth on March 26, 2020 at 1:10 pm

    *Says list is in random order. . . saves best for last anyway*

  32. waitwhat ? on March 26, 2020 at 1:13 pm

    You guys may wanna hire a new editor… 1uncharted4 is not a real game…

  33. Rene Olivas on March 26, 2020 at 1:13 pm

    This is the worst list ever no Breath Of The Wild or bayonetta 2 wow

  34. Mark Turnbull on March 26, 2020 at 1:14 pm

    Metal gear 5 sucks

  35. Beautifuljustnotmagic on March 26, 2020 at 1:15 pm

    Interesting opinions! Very well done video. In my opinion, MGS V is a great action game, but not a great Metal Gear Solid game, if that makes sense.

  36. Robert Ungureanu on March 26, 2020 at 1:15 pm

    Where are Far Cry 5 and AC Odissey???

  37. Kas V on March 26, 2020 at 1:15 pm

    Dont have dark souls 3, doom 2 and AC origins, other than that pretty much platinumed the rest, besides gears only ps4

  38. Pangalan Apilido on March 26, 2020 at 1:15 pm

    Where the F is The Last o- … oh. It’s too old to be on here, isn’t it? What about Last of Us II though?

  39. Niven Kanth on March 26, 2020 at 1:16 pm

    God of War made me love gaming again

  40. Kirin Uchiha on March 26, 2020 at 1:17 pm

  41. FaKe PeRsOnA on March 26, 2020 at 1:18 pm

  42. JR Patilan Gaming on March 26, 2020 at 1:19 pm

    @GamingBolt
    Assassins creed started with Altair not Ezio…

  46. GWARgun Guerra on March 26, 2020 at 1:21 pm

    God of war is the uglyest game of them all

  47. Zack Bonno on March 26, 2020 at 1:22 pm

    The Assassin’s Creed series started with Altair…

  48. Daves GoldenDuck on March 26, 2020 at 1:22 pm

    Assassins Creed Odyssey was last year. Origins was 2017

  49. Erik Van Der Waal on March 26, 2020 at 1:25 pm

    WRONG!

  50. Andres V. on March 26, 2020 at 1:27 pm
