Sci-Fi PC Games Players_Big

Quantum Break (2016)

Quantum Break Player Count: 20,251

This game is truly a breakthrough, the gameplay is a basic third-person shooter so you already know what the drill is, you are going to be shooting running, and the king behind cover. The unique twist that Quantum break brings however is the ability to manipulate time. Unlike Max Payne and unlike Life is Strange. 

With a fun mixture of skills and snappy can play Jack’s our main character power can be upgraded during the game and when you start striking this power in the heat of battle it makes for some of the most chaotic gunfights I had in a long time admittedly these mechanics aren’t new but they are implemented to perfection and make for extremely gameplay. Quantum break is a gorgeous price of work that is well worth playing.

Biomutant (2020)

Biomutant Player Count: 13,403

It is a post-apocalypse futuristic simulator. In this game, you purchase and create your very own creature. Biomutant gives you the freedom to choose how you want to play, be a gunslinger, take out your enemy from a distance, become an assassin, deliver devastating self attacks, train to be martial art’s master, or maybe even a combination of both.  

There is so much to see and do, there are robots, flying rugs, crazy guns. Biomutant is a joy to play, the world is so detailed with secret galore to reveal as you explore.

The combat is buttery smooth and building your arena of weapons is almost a game into itself. If you are looking for a colorful unique action-packed title be sure to play Biomutant.

Doom Eternal (2020)

Doom Eternal Player Count: 123,885

Dhoom games have always been fun so there isn’t really any reason for doom eternal to not be fun as well. Doom eternal is just like all the previous games it runs incredibly well and is probably one of the smoothest fast-paced  FPS games you had ever played this also applied to the previous games. It’s spring baton mod is a new 2vs1 multiplayer mod for the people who enjoy online stuff. 

Doom eternal required constant calculus, do have bullets in the right gun to take down the enemy? Can you damage someone enough for a health boost while you’re on the run? Should you put your effort into knocking out the figure who’s chasing you or take a second to snipe off the weapons offered by a distant monster by making use of doom’s eternal new enemy weak points.

Most fights take place in big multi-level arenas adorned with jump pads and monkey bars that help you get around quickly and you’re also equipped with a double jump and a quick horizontal dash that lets you avoid attacks and cross distances if you are not moving you are dying.

Half-Life Alyx (2020)

Hal-Life Alyx Player Count: 59,621

Halflife Alyx is a technological marvel but more importantly, is the best game you can play in VR right now. You play as Alex Vance working your way through city 17 trying to save your father Eli. It would be a lonely mission if it wasn’t for Russell a headset chats to you along the way in a masterstroke of casting he’s played by Rhys Dardy.

Gravity gloves that hark back to the fan-favorite gravity gun and let you whip ammo and health and well anything into the air and then catch it using them as surprisingly intuitive and there are a lot of chances to have fun with them as you explore the world, she also has an electromagnetic pulse multi-tool which is no use in combat but can help redirect power in circuits. Sometimes you’ll need to solve the puzzle by moving chairs creates and debris from the world around and the lack of limitation makes it feel so much more satisfying to experiment. This is the best virtual reality game you can play right now.

Cyberpunk 2077 (2020)

Cyberpunk 2077 Player Count: 425,908

It is a single-player open-world first-person RPG. Gameplay mechanics are certainly impressive and even quite possibly dare I say very best Asha s open-world game go. The entire game takes place in night City, the huge map with a violent crime-filled futuristic metropolis that will no doubt show you the most incredible experience in gaming.

You play as V, after a heist went wrong v ends up with a digital ghost of johnny Silverhand inside his brain. V then begins their journey to achieving legendary status night city. There are many NPCs to interact with, lots of techs to hack, cars to steal or people to fight, relationships to flourish, and awesome soundtracks this game has to offer.

Cyberpunk 2077 is a fun game to play on PC. For PlayStation 4 and Xbox, it is a different game entirely it fails to hit even the lowest bar technical quality one should expect when even playing on lower and hardware it performs to poly that if you made combat driving and whatever is otherwise a master craft of storytelling.

Call of Duty Black Ops III (2015)

Call of Duty Black Ops III Player Count: 104,470

Just a 6-hour co-op campaign story is set in the near future where people mentally connect with the computer weapons and with other humans this state allows for new power and limitations that changed how the call of duty plays the plot explores topics like brainwashing and mental health care.

Killing robots is a blast thanks to varied and designs and three flavors of new mind power blowing things up things and controlling your enemies each power free has its own place style, my favorite is the charge ability which kills or staggers and in my path and you also have the invisibility power which is perfect for sneaking to cover or reviving allies I have never seen this kind of variety in call of duty games. Many missions allow you to satisfyingly use your power and cover and co-op.

In competitive multiplayer everyone has created a new thruster pack, movement feels smooth easy to control, and offer precision they are great for chasing skipping and getting two objectives. This part also has a zombie mode.

Warframe (2013)

Warframe Player Count: 438,073

It is free to play an online multiplayer game. It is a third-person shooter game that falls in the RPG(Role Playing Game) genre of gaming. It was initially released for only windows but later on, it was also released for Xbox One and Playstation 4.

This game is free on steam and thus has a large base of players. Warframe always maintains its position in the Top 5 most online players daily.

In this game, you are an ancient warrior race or species who were held in suspended animation for centuries. Now you have awakened in a far-future Earth and found yourself amidst an interplanetary battle. Now you have to complete several missions and proceed in the game.

Warframe is really fun when you play it with your friends, at least try it once I guarantee that you will like it.

Destiny 2 (2017)

Destiny 2 Player Count: 381,430

This one has one of the most beautiful storylines and single-player campaigns so you and your kids are gonna love it. This game is fully focused on space fights and the whole gameplay is in space planets and unknown environments.

This game keeps you hooked up to the story. This is also a little bit Complex so I would say that you should assist your kids while playing it. Its age rating is 13+ but you can have your 11 or 12-year-old kid play while assisting them in starting. You should avoid letting them play independently because it has some graphic scenes that could baffle them.

Destiny 2

Borderlands 3 (2019)

Borderlands 3 Player Count: 80,900

It is a First-person shooter online as well as offline SciFi-themed game. If you have played Borderlands 2 you definitely gonna love Borderlands 3 because everything is much smoother, clean to play. 2k did a great job just by improving thing’s up and making a joyful shooter game.

Personally, I loved  Borderlands 3 as a multiplayer, playing with friends, killing enemies, looting, and leveling up was just more fun and also you get free bonus points for playing with friends. 

Borderlands 3 worked very well with guns I really enjoyed a lot playing and switching the different type of guns, every guns have their own physics while aiming, sliding or moving and it feels really good

Gears 5 (2019)

Gears 5 Player Count: 17,122

It continues the story of Gears of War 4 so it means that if you already played Gears of War 4, Gears 5 is a must to play because Gears 5 is a step-up 3 person shooter game the story feels more connected and attached.

If you have never played any Gears games, Gears 5 has a Bootcamp mode for the new players but it does not tell you about the backstory. It’s kind of a game tutorial that is separated from the main story.

Gears 5 is like a more open-world game than its previous parts, you have a skift vehicle to travel around and it’s really fun to control it the way it glides. This vehicle is so good that I traveled a lot with it and have completed side quests and collected more tags and collectibles. I personally loved this open-end section.

Gears 5 also introduced new weapons and great enemy encounters which were so challenging for me. In Gears 5 you can upgrade your abilities and skills which I feel is good because it feels more customization and progression in your gameplay.

Gears 5 also comes with a co-op mode and also other modes like horde mode returns, classic mode, arcade mode, and escape mode which is so fun to play, and also there is a map builder just like Mario maker.

Metro Exodus (2019)

Metro Exodus Player Count: 59,189

It is a semi-open world game which is not as common as Metro games do, so does Metro Exodus maintain stressful scary situations just like the previous games did? What I think is ‘yes’ Metro Exodus does that very well. The open-world thing does not affect the scary story of Metro Exodus, instead, it makes it more joyful to play. It’s still a story-based game. 

You’re Artyom and in search of other survivors Arthyom’s wife board, a train called the Aurora. I really like the concept of the train which makes things scarier and more action-packed, and also there are some parts of the game where everything goes silent with scary background sounds. At this part of the game, I was so stressed and scared as hell because I always ran out of ammo.

I really recommend playing this game with headphones because the audio-visual experience is legit. There is a day and night cycle which helps you to loot more at night by sneaking into bandit camp but sometimes you can be encountered by monsters. 

Now on Metro Exodus, you can craft Artyam has this back page where you can swap out weapon attachments make more medkits and throwables.
