Do you prefer to play against the world or against other people? Some games combine both of these experiences, while others offer them in a single game. In this 30-page list, we cover both.
#30 Tom Clancy’s The Division Series
Let’s start with a game that is PVPVE. Tom Clancy’s The Division Series was one of Ubisoft’s “big swings” in creating new IP. It took a while to get to systems, but it eventually made it, and now it’s a whole franchise.
You play the role of a secret agent for an undercover agency that rises only in the most dramatic situations. For example, when Washington DC is under threat from hostile takeovers.
You’ll dive into the environment and take on missions ranging from simple target takedowns to full-scale battles against enemy players. Although it’s not the best series, it will keep everyone entertained.
#29 Back 4 Blood
A title you might recall is Left 4 DeadThe team at Valve created this. Some of these people left Valve and created their own game called Back 4 Blood.

The game features a 4-player co-op, and you’ll have to wield various weapons to make it out alive. Take on the horde, and make use of the environment that is destructible to defeat the odds!

#27 Genshin Impact
Genshin Impact is one of the most popular games out there right now, and it’s for reasons that have to deal with the “gacha” system. But we’re not here to talk about that system! We aren’t!
Instead, we’re talking about the overall mechanics and plot of the title. You’ll play as one of two siblings who are sent to another world by a mysterious god, then separated and stripped of your power. You now have to search the lands in search of your sibling, and battle evil as you do.
Through an elemental combat system, you’ll learn how to battle in the game, and with some special characters at your side, you’ll travel the vast world to seek the truth behind what is happening.
Minecraft is the best-selling game of all time; that’s a fact. It’s also a fact that despite its simplistic look, it has multiple gameplay modes for you to try.
The most well-known mode is the builder. Here you can go into a server to collect resources and build anything you wish. If you prefer a different feeling, you can switch to survival mode to see how long it takes you against the zombies, animals, and world around you.
