There’s just something special about games that take you through vast journeys set against the backdrop of wondrous locations. These are the games that completely grip the player and make them a living, breathing part of the virtual escapade that they’re set in – which causes us to spend days and weeks checking every nook and cranny and ticking out every quest in the logbook. While such experiences are generally few and far between, the last couple of years have blessed us gamers with plenty of games that belong to this niche. And with this feature, we will be taking a look at 10 recent PS5 and Xbox Series X/S games that last 100 hours.’
Death Stranding: Director’s Cut
Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but those who jive with its unique brand of gameplay and post-apocalyptic world will tell you that it’s one of the few games that are worth sinking your teeth into. While the critical path will take you on a vast trek across varied biomes as you deliver packages, the core of Death Stranding is all about reconnecting lost communities and building together a shared world with structures like bridges, roads, and ziplines. It’s a truly rewarding experience that gives as much as it takes, and the current-gen Director’s Cut release is the best way to see what this game has to offer.
