Action Games- The Thrill Is Addictive

When you watch live action on movie screens, you get excited. Combined with sound effects the action can be a real thrill. Some actions that we watch takes the breath away. How about Action games on computers?
Some of the makers of action games make great animations and may include a story line. Stories always attract us. Tell a story and everybody will listen. The action games on computers use this very well to produce games that can take your breath away thinking of the imagination and artistry applied by the maker.

Adventures, space fights, planes colliding in mid air, think of any action and you will find it used in a game. Most of these games are free online. Action games give great thrill and despite called for teenagers they are for the family to enjoy them together. Action games test the response of the player and sharpen the judgment. Such games are not pure fun. They can help as training tools if used properly.

Other free online games that are currently becoming very popular are- Arcade Games, Board Games, Card Games, Casino Games, Strategy Games, Sports Games, Shooting Games and, Puzzle Games. Most of the online games are free. Look for a good website and play the games. They are a fabulous way of enjoyment. As I said in the heading these games can become addictive. Take small doses and life will be a joy.

The best PC games of 2013

The Elder Scrolls: Online


Publisher: Bethesda
Release: Mid-2013
Link
The Elder Scrolls online has weathered a mixed reception since its announcement. On one hand, it’s the largest Elder Scrolls game ever made – and the first to allow players to explore the entire continent of Tamriel. On the other, there are those who argue that an MMO of the traditional sort can’t do the series justice – after all, Skyrim’s just as famous for its basket-based emergent tomfoolery as it is for its actual RPG mechanics. The real reason to watch The Elder Scrolls Online is the talent behind it – the ex-Mythic developers responsible for the innovative Warhammer: Age of Reckoning and, before that, Dark Age of Camelot. Don’t write off the old-school MMO just yet.

Shadowrun Online


Publisher: Cliffhanger Productions
Release: TBC 2013
Link
After a rather limp showing on console a few years ago, legendary cyberpunk pen and paper RPG Shadowrun is getting another stab at life online. Cliffhanger Productions’ Unity-powered MMO will allow players to become mages, hackers, cyborg warriors and more. It’s the blend of traditional fantasy and near-future sci-fi that has always made Shadowrun stand out – this is a world where elves wear tanktops and assassinate corporate dragons. Player actions will impact the ongoing storyline of the pen and paper version, which is a nice touch.

Neverwinter


Publisher: Perfect World Entertainment
Release: Early 2013
Link
Cryptic’s latest shares a setting but little else with the BioWare RPG series of a few years ago. It’s an action-heavy online RPG set in the Forgotten Realms’ most famous city, a hundred years after a terrible disaster. It’ll be free to play, and there’ll be a proper content creation tool that’ll allow players to create their own questlines. Cryptic had success with something similar in City of Heroes – here’s hoping they can build on that success.

Firefall


Publisher: Red 5 Studios
Release: Early 2013
Link
Firefall is a hugely amibitious free to play shooter that is attempting to be all things to everyone – co-op MMO blaster, competitive FPS, serious e-sport contender. Jetpacks abound, but despite the presence of Tribes designer Scott Youngbood you’re better off thinking more along the lines of Guild Wars 2 and Planetside 2. The developers have been active in responding to the community over the course of the game’s long beta, and there’s a lot of promise in Firefall’s vision of a vibrant, monster-stalked future Earth.

Everquest Next


Publisher: Sony Online Entertainment
Release: Late 2013
Link
Not much is known about EverQuest Next, but SOE president John Smedley hopes that it will “define the next generation of MMOs.” The developer reportedly scrapped the game’s design and started over to avoid the subscription slump experienced by content-led MMOs like Star Wars: The Old Republic and The Secret World. SOE are looking to build the “the largest sandbox MMO ever designed.” Hopefully, that means a step away from prescriptive raiding and endless grind and back towards actual immersion and meaningful interactions between players.

Marvel Heroes


Publisher: Gazillion Entertainment
Release: TBC 2013
Link
Recently shown off to the press in an early form, action RPG Marvel Heroes has been slow to win hearts and minds. You drag classic superheroes on a Diablo-style ganking spree taking place in the Marvel universe. It’ll be free to play, but expect to shell out for premim heroes and alternate appearances. Potentially of interest to serious Marvel buffs – is that Rocket Raccoon? – but those less enamoured of the comics giant might want to wait for the reviews before investing their time.

Survarium


Publisher: Vostok Games
Release: Late 2013
Link
A post-apocalyptic MMOFPS by the chaps behind the excellent STALKER games is an exciting notion, but little is known about Survarium save that it takes place following a worldwide ecological disaster and that players will battle ‘maddened animals and birds’ in the ruins of civilization. Hopefully the presence of other players will enhance – rather than undermine – the pervasive sense of threat that made STALKER so special.

Age Of Wulin/Wushu


Publisher: Gala Networks
Release: 2013
Link
Age of Wulin is a Chinese-developed MMO currently being adapted for a western audience. It’s set during the Ming dynasty and focuses on martial artists from various schools. While not wholly realistic, there’s a strong attention to historical detail and the tone is more magic realist than outright fantasy. There are a few novel ideas in play, too – when you log out, your character remains in the world, performing your crafting professions as an NPC.

Project V13


Publisher: Interplay
Release: TBC 2013
Link
Following legal troubles between Bethesda and Interplay, not much is known about the oft-rumoured Fallout MMO. There was an attempt last year to spark interest around a series of ARG websites, but don’t hold your breath on this seeing a release this year.

WildStar


Publisher: NCSoft
Release: TBC 2013
Link
Wildstar is a cartoonish sci-fi MMO that promises to give players a wide range of options for progression, with combat, crafting and exploration all fully viable games in their own right. The developers recently announced an innovative in-game housing system that’ll ensure there’s space for every player by ejecting individual chunks of land into the sky with rocket boosters. Hey – it’s more imaginative than instancing.

Wizardry Online


Publisher: Sony Online Entertainment
Release: Early 2013
Link
The official Wizardry Online website claims that the anime MMO has been in development for thirty years, which seems like a bit of a stretch. It’s a ‘hardcore’ online RPG that features permadeath and looks a little like Dark Souls, were it not for the bobble-headed anime characters.

World Of Darkness


Publisher: CCP Games
Release: TBC 2013
Link
CCP are promising a faithful take on White Wolf’s pen and paper vampire RPG, so expect to spend more time talking to the monsters than slaying them. There’s talk of a complicated political system that’ll allow players to make power plays and betray one another by the rules of the Masquerade, the vampire code of conduct.

Otherland


Publisher: Gamigo
Release: TBC 2013
Link
An action MMO set inside a series of virtual worlds – some fantasy, others medieval, others science fiction – that themselves comprise a virtual world. If there were ever a time that the Inception horn was justified, now would be it. It’s free to play, and based on the novels of the same name by Tad Williams.

Infinity


Publisher: I-Novae Studios
Release: Late 2013
Link
Infinity has been around forever, it seems – a dream of a procedurally generated universe featuring seamless space-to-surface flight. The developer is planning a Kickstarter campaign early in the year to finally get this starship MMO into game-like shape – but whether it’ll be enough to compete with Star Citizen and a resurgent Elite remains to be seen.

City Of Steam


Publisher: Mechanist Games
Release: TBC 2013
Link
3D indie action MMO that, impressively, runs entirely in a browser. It features traditional fantasy races transposed to the post-industrial world. Expect dungeons, orcs, and clockwork motorcycles. They’re really commiting to that steampunk thing: the world is a giant cog floating in space.

World Of Warplanes


Publisher: Wargaming.net
Release: Q1 2013
Link
The follow-up to World of Tanks transplants Wargaming.net’s multiplayer formula to the skies. Take on squadrons of player-controlled WWII aircraft, level up, and upgrade your plane before heading out to do it all over again. Like its caterpillar-treaded cousin, it’ll be free to play but spending money will unlock exclusive vehicles and speed up your advancement.

Heroes And Generals


Publisher: Square Enix
Release: TBC 2013
Link
Heroes & Generals combines a multiplayer FPS (that’d be the ‘heroes’ bit) with a persistent web-based strategy metagame (you know, ‘generals’). It’s set during World War II, and you can access the strategy component on the move by using a smartphone.

The Castle Doctrine


Publisher: Jason Rohrer
Release: TBC 2013
Link
The Castle Doctrine is an MMO by indie developer Jason Rohrer, based around the concept of home defence. The doctrine in question is an aspect of U.S. law that allows homeowners to defend their property. You’ll need to buy traps in order to prevent other players from stealing your things – but where do you get the money? That’s right: by stealing other people’s stuff. Not much else is known at the moment, but Rohrer’s ‘Sleep is Death’ showcased some innovative ideas about multiplayer storytelling.

Transformers Universe


Publisher: Jagex Games Studio
Release: TBC 2013
Link
Autobots and Decepticons do as Autobots and Decepticons will in the MMO debut of the Transformers franchise. Early footage shows off a brightly-coloured take on the series, suggesting something closer to the original cartoon than the recent movies. Which can only be a good thing, frankly. It’s being developed by Jagex, of Runescape fame.

Defiance


Publisher: SyFy
Release: April
Link
A massively multiplayer action game that ties into a SyFy channel TV show. It’s set in the area around San Francisco in a future where alien terraforming has littered the world with Hellbugs. Don’t let the name fool you! They’re pretty terrible. There’s a little of Firefall to the art style and premise, but the cross-media aspect is a novel touch.

The Missing Ink


Publisher: Redbedlam
Release: TBC 2013
Link
A cute British indie MMORPG where every player gets their own sandbox world to manipulate as they see fit. It’s browser-based on PC, but there’ll be mobile versions to allow players to log in while they’re out and about. The art style is adorable – a mixture of chunky 3D and ‘paper doll’-style players and monsters.

Cartoon Universe


Publisher: Warner Bros Interactive
Release: Q1 2013
Link
An MMO based on Warner Bros. cartoons – think Looney Tunes, Scooby Doo and co. Run quests, play games on arcade machines, and defeat bosses – it’s straightforward stuff, but as you might expect the game is being aimed squarely at a younger audience.

World Of Warships


Publisher: Wargaming.net
Release: TBC 2013
Link
The third part of Wargaming.net’s World War II action trifecta is a battleship deathmatch game. Planes and tanks, we’re familiar with – warships are a stranger proposition, and it’ll be interesting to see how the developers handle the relatively slow pace of naval warfare. Expect a major difference in playstyle between ship types – an aircraft carrier is a very different beast from a frigate or a submarine.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn


Publisher: Square Enix
Release: August 27
Link
Square Enix’s first go at Final Fantasy XIV was a bit of a massive calamity, but you have to admire their decision to nuke its game world from orbit and redo pretty much the whole game from scratch. Set after that apocalypse, the rejigged A Realm Reborn has so far garnered much more praise, even if the game’s launch didn’t go particularly smoothly.
