Video Games: They call us thrill-seekers, adrenaline junkies… you name it. But underneath the desire to invoke these kinds of feelings lies the inherent thirst to experience something more. Something that makes you feel alive and present in the moment. Does any of it sound familiar?

If yes, the video games titles and franchises you’re about to discover below should be right up your alley:

1.Spider Man

Unfortunately, no technology that would allow you to swing from building to building exists as of yet – at least not in real life. On the flipside, there is Spider Man, one of the recently released video game titles from the Marvel universe. So what makes the title so relevant?

First of all, there’s no better way to get your heart pounding as you fight your way through an onslaught of enemies, all while exploring the open in-game world and its many hidden corners. To make things interesting, Spider-Man has a wide range of superpowers that will help you in whatever mission you undertake.

Temporarily incapacitate your enemies with a well-timed shot of the web? Check. Make your way through tight and narrow city spaces? You got it. And the list goes on.

2. Star Trek: Bridge Crew The Next Generation

There is something scary about the idea of exploring the vastness of the open space, but can you tame your own fear of the unknown? If you don’t mind a little bit of action, this Star Trek title is bound to deliver – and then some.

Not convinced yet? Then you’ll be glad to find out that the game was designed to give you an immersive VR experience. Of course, there is also the regular non-VR mode if that’s what you prefer.

During your space adventures, you’ll embark on a quest to stop the evil schemes of the Borg Cube that’s breathing down your neck. All in all, this game is bound to give you plenty of adrenaline, an interactive storyline, as well as fancy graphics to color your world.

3. Aviator

Scared of mind-numbing heights, but you just can’t resist the high they give you? Or perhaps there’s something that gives you the all-familiar rush when you decide to put your hard-earned money at stake? If any of these describes you, you need to try the Aviator game.

This title is quite revolutionary in the gambling industry due to how much action is required of you in so little time. The gist of it is timing your bet before the plane takes off. However, there’s just one little problem – the game won’t tell you when that is.

Get your timing right, and you could take home a small fortune. Misjudge it, and all of your money will be lost. Pack all of this high-intensity action in a time period of 10 seconds – the average time needed to complete a round – and you’re in for a teeth grinder!

4. Fortnite Battle Royale

Are you the multiplayer type? Then nothing is more thrill-inducing than playing a couple of rounds of Fortnite Battle Royale, one of the top shooters of our time. Given its status, it’s impossible not to have heard of it at least once. But in case you’ve somehow managed to live under a rock and evade its presence for this long, here’s a quick rundown.

The core idea is to either go solo or team up with a group of friends to go against other teams. The game constantly keeps you on the edge, since you never know whether someone might be waiting right around the corner to sweep the floor with your in-game character. And best of all? It’s completely free of charge!


Due to regional lockdowns, not all of us have the freedom to visit places and get our adrenaline fix the old-fashioned way. But there’s nothing stopping an avid gamer.
