Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is a game set in the fantasy universe of the Lord of the Rings. The game offers a great amount of detail when it comes to replicating the Lord of the Rings Universe.
The combat in the game is also unique with a great mixture of using skills and skillful sword battles. The game can be enjoyed even if you do not follow the Lord of the Rings series but it does add to the lore if you are slightly familiar with the story.
It is a completely open word and the game allows players to explore and perform side quests. The game is quite comprehensive and offers about 30-40 hours of gameplay if you are a completionist.
The Witcher 3
The Witcher is an intense role playing game filled with grey moral choices. The game has multiple endings and they depend on the choices that you make along the game. The game is actually an adaptation of the book by Polish author Anrzej Sapkowski.
The character you play in the game goes by the name of Geralt and is one of the few remaining from a community of people known as the witchers. Witchers have the ability to cast spells and perform magic as a form of attack or defense.
The two major aspects of the game are the story and combat. The combat system in the game is highly comprehensive and one can choose to play in multiple playstyles.
In the Witcher 3, you fight against stuff by using 3 main tactics namely Sword fighting, Sign casting and Alchemy. You can use armors that compliment each of these skills. You could go for a full on sign-intensive build or alchemy focused build (both are necessary but only one is focused).
Having such gameplay mechanics makes it a great recommendation for people who loved playing Dragon’s Dogma.
Lords of The Fallen
Lords of The Fallen is a harcore action role plaing game that is set in a dark world where demons and other supernatural forces roam free. The gods have abandoned the human race and their only saviour now is Harkyn.
You play as Harkyn on this journey and your main objective is to protect the earth from the demonic creatures that haunt it. This journey will take you on a path of discovery until you have uncovered the truth.
The combat in this game is mixed between fast paced and strategic. You need to actively collect equipment throughout the game and because each new weapon or tool directly impacts your players characteristics such as speed, power and health.
The story line however does not let you deviate too much from the main theme. This Is not so bad because of the gripping plot. The open world in this game is beautifully designed and is very pleasing to the eye.

Shadow of The Colossus
Shadow of The colossus is a game set in the world only known as the forbidden land. This land is devoid of life but the countless ruins of the towns and large buildings suggest that there once was life in this land.
You play as Wander who enters this realm with his trusty horse Argo to defeat the 16 colossi. Only upon defeating the 16 colossi can the soul of their Maiden Mono be placed back into her physical body.
Each of these 16 colossi have different weaknesses and it is upto you to find this weakness. That is the only way you stand a chance against these creatures.
The story mainly focuses on finding these 16 colossi and most of the time you will be trying to tame these beasts with your sword. This means that the scope for side quests are limited.
But this does not pose as too much of an issue as the main story line is pretty intense and the combat sequences are very satisfying.
