One of the most popular video games this year is “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare”, which is an immersive FPS (First person shooter) game that runs for $40-$50. “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” takes place in a realistic and modern setting. The campaign follows a CIA officer and British SAS forces as they team up with rebels from the fictional country of Urzikstan, combating together against Russian forces who have invaded the country. The game’s Special Ops mode features cooperative play missions that follow up the campaign’s story. The multiplayer mode supports cross-platform multiplayer and cross-platform progression for the first time in the series. It has been reworked for gameplay to be more tactical and introduces new features, such as a Realism mode that removes the HUD (Heads Up Display) as well as a form of the Ground War mode that now supports 64 players.

Ocarina of Time: Another very popular game is “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time” is a fantasy action-adventure game set in an expansive environment, which costs $20-$40. The player controls series protagonist Link from a third person perspective in a three-dimensional world. The main character, Link primarily fights with a sword and shield, but can also use other weapons such as projectiles, bombs, and magic spells. The control scheme introduced techniques such as context-sensitive actions and a targeting system called “Z-targeting”, which allows the player to have Link focus and latch onto enemies or other objects. When using this technique, the camera follows the target and Link constantly faces it. Projectile attacks are automatically directed at the target and do not require manual aiming. Context-sensitive actions allow multiple tasks to be assigned to one button, simplifying the control scheme. The on-screen display shows what will happen when the button is pushed and changes depending on what the character is doing. For example, the same button that causes Link to push a box if he is standing next to it will have him climb on the box if the analog stick is pushed toward it. Much of the game is spent in battle, but some parts require the use of stealth.

A very fun game to play is “Star Wars Jedi: The Fallen Order”, it is an action-adventure video game played from a third-person perspective its pricing can range from $20-$50. It adopts the “Metroidvania” style of exploration and progression. Players control Cal Kestis and have access to a lightsaber and the Force, which are used in both combat and puzzle scenarios. Enemy types range from Imperial stormtroopers, droids, and Purge Troopers, who have been trained specifically to battle Jedi, to wild beasts and skilled Zabrak warriors that are native to each planet Cal explores. The game’s bosses include Inquisitors, who also wield lightsabers and the Force, bounty hunters hired to hunt down Cal, large vehicles such as AT-STs (All Terrain Scout Transport), and wild beasts like the Oggdo-Bogdo and the Gorgara.
