Star Wars Battlefront 2

Developer: EA DICE, Criterion Software, Motive Studios
Format(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

Star Wars Battlefront 2 had a rough start, with its implementation of loot boxes souring many players on the experience. Heck, it was even the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back for some countries, and the game was classified as gambling. That’s all gone now – the game has had its questionable progression system completely overhauled, and loot boxes are hardly a concern any more. Which is good, because without all that mess to distract you, you’ll be having so much Star Wars fun you’ll start making lightsaber, blaster, and starship noises with your mouth in no time. Vvvrrumm! Pew! Whhooohm!

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Developer: Valve, Hidden Path Entertainment
Format(s): PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3

There’s a reason Counter-Strike has stuck around for as long as it has. A fast and hyper-lethal portrayal of modern military engagements, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (or just CS:GO for short) is all about being quick on the draw and an even quicker thinker. Tactics and teamwork will win the day here, as you set forth to eliminate other players or engage in more objective-focused modes such as disarming a bomb.

Tom Clancy’s The Division

Developer: Ubisoft, Massive Entertainment, Red Storm Entertainment
Format(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

The Division saw a massive surge in interest when it first released, only to rapidly deflate as players moved on to the next hot item. But Ubisoft didn’t give up on the game, and the improvements made since launch are palpable. A third-person online tactical shooter set in our near future, The Division feels unique among its more fantastical brethren, though you may still find yourself equipping an “Exotic” hat that magically gives you better aim with your rifle. And if it turns out you really like this sort of gameplay, stick around, because The Division 2 is set to launch in March 2019.

15. Heroes of the Storm

Developer: Blizzard
Format(s): PC

Blizzard may have been late to the MOBA party, but its take on the genre is worth your attention. Bringing together heroes (and villains) from across Blizzard’s various properties, Heroes of the Storm makes its battlegrounds as much a part of the action as the characters themselves. Instead of a single map and game mode, HotS introduces a plethora of maps, with objectives unique to each. And because Heroes doesn’t restrict itself to conventional designs, you can have characters like Abathur, who might spend an entire match sitting in your base, or Cho’Gall, a single character controlled by two players. But really, the main draw here is the fan service. If you’ve ever wanted to see who would win in a fight between Diablo, Tracer, Illidan, and Jim Raynor, Heroes of the Storm is for you.

 Battlefield 1

Developer: EA DICE
Format(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

After only finding so-so success by setting its Battlefield games in the modern age, EA and DICE went back – way back – for Battlefield 1. Taking place during World War 1 (hence the title) BF1 keeps what makes the series great, but dresses it up in an early 20th-century aesthetic. The massive 64-player battles are still here, as are a wide variety of land and air vehicles. Heck, you can even ride into battle on horseback! And of course it’s all just freakin’ gorgeous, with an absurd level of detail put into every gun, outfit, and even the bullet physics. If Call of Duty feels a bit too arcadey for you, check out the Battlefield series.

Titanfall 2

Developer: Respawn Entertainment
Format(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

Realism? Bah, who needs that! Let’s use our jetpacks to boost ourselves into the sky, then throw out a grappling hook so we can scale a building, run impossibly fast along the wall of said building, then leap off of it and into our giant robot. That’s Titanfall 2, one of the most absurd and frenetic multiplayer shooters out there. With a unique pilots vs. titans setup for many of its modes, it’s incredibly fun to be constantly adjusting your strategy as you smoothly sling from one side of the map to the other and eliminate the opposition like some kind of sci-fi John Wick.
