If you’re reading this, you’ve probably just gotten your hands on a shiny new console or pc and are wondering where to start in this amazing world of gaming.

Worry not, Kuna has you covered.

You should probably first go and check out my post Upcoming Games I Am Excited About(2019). to get a glimpse of the hottest picks of 2019.

Gaming is a broad field- with dozens of genres, each with tons of unique and immersive games. Here, I will list down the best of all major genres so you can find out which one’s right for you!

Gaming Genres:

1. Role-Playing-Games(RPGs):

RPGs are probably the most influential genre in gaming history. RPGs typically involve turn-based combat and strategy. They involve the player taking the role of a pre-defined or customized character and accomplishing tasks such as slaying dragons and collecting points. Games involve games with traditional turn-based combat systems(XCOM 2) and adventure RPGs like Witcher 3.

Games to consider are:

  • Dark Souls III
  • Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
  • Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
  • Fallout 4

First Person Shooters:

First Person Shooter Games constitute one of my favorite genres in gaming. FPS rely deeply on reflexes, speed, and accuracy. FPS games are also the most favored games for competitive gaming. Some of the major titles in FPS games are Call Of Duty, Counter-Strike, etc.

Games to consider:

  • Counter-Strike: Global Offense
  • Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4
  • Battlefield 5
  • Destiny 2

Battle Royales:

Battle Royales are the hottest and most trending genre of the day, and dozens of companies are seizing the opportunity to get their cut.

Battle Royales typically involve 100 players dropped on an island to scavenge resources and kill each other till a sole survivor remains.

Games to consider:

  • Blackout, Black Ops 4 (personal recommendation)
  • PlayerUnknown’sBattleGround.
  • Fortnite (personal opposition)
  • Battlefield Firestorm(upcoming)

3. Action-Adventure

This is another one of my favorite genres.

Action Adventure games are similar to RPGs but feature real-time combat systems and stress on reflexes rather than decision-making. They are, well, action-packed. Action-Adventure offer story-driven game with intense cutscenes and gameplay elements.

Several action-adventure titles also feature an open-world where players can explore tons of nooks and crannies.

Personal Recommendations:

  • Last Of Us
  • Uncharted 4: A thief’s end
  • Red Dead Redemption 2
  • Assassin Creed Odyssey

Latest Installments:

  • Shadow Of The Tomb Raider
  • Spiderman PS4(highly rated)
  • God Of War(Highly rated)

Racing Games:

Racing games are fast-paced and provide a fair share of adrenaline. They typically involve(unreal) physics and, in some cases, a lot of unnecessary blowing up.

Racing games attract a niche audience of gamers. I have also spent a period of time attracted to this genre.

Games to consider:

  • NFS Payback
  • The Crew 2.
  • F1 2018
  • Fora Horizon 4

Sports Games:

Sports games offer a group experience and are largely played by sports fans, though casual gamers also indulge in them. Sports Games are a popular genre.

Personally, I hate them.

Games To Consider:

  • Fifa 19
  • NBA 2k18/2k19.

Fighting Games:

If you’re the type of person who has a gang of friends to play your games with, (unlike me 😦 ) you might wanna consider getting your hands on some fighting games.

Modern fighting games can be immensely indulging, featuring well-designed combat systems and indulging gameplay.

Games to consider:

  • Mortal Kombat 11(releasing in April 2019)
  • Street Fighter 5
  • Tekken 7.
