5. Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising
Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising revamps the classic fighting game formula, making it more welcoming for new players while keeping it exciting for seasoned gamers. This sequel has cleverly simplified its controls, allowing beginners to jump into the action without getting bogged down by complex button combos. This change means players can enjoy the thrill of battle and strategy without worrying too much about mastering difficult moves. The game does a fantastic job of being easy for newcomers to pick up while still offering the depth and challenge that experienced fighters love. It strikes a perfect balance, offering straightforward controls that don’t take away from the game’s strategic depth.
Aside from the fighting, the game introduces a fun new party mode called Grand Bruise Legends.

4. Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader
Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader takes players on an epic journey through the Koronus Expanse, a dangerous and largely uncharted region in the Warhammer universe.

As you navigate through this perilous space, the grandeur and mystery of the fringes of the Imperium unfold before you, offering a unique blend of adventure and danger.
In this game, your decisions really matter. You play as a Lord-Captain, a powerful and influential figure who must make choices that go beyond simple dialogue options. These choices affect everything from your character creation to your strategic decisions on the battlefield. Will you uphold the God-Emperor’s will, or will you venture into forbidden territories? Your actions change not just your path, but the world around you and its inhabitants.
