Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – 79
While we may have had some issues the latest updates to Black Ops 4’s monetization systems, its undeniable that the gameplay in Black Ops 4 is the best in years for Call of Duty.
Black Ops 4 offers a ton of content for its asking price. Zombies comes with 3 maps out of the box, multiplayer is the most solid it’s been since Black Ops 2, and the new Blackout Battle Royale mode is the most polished Battle Royale mode currently available.
If you’re a fan of FPS games this one may be worth a look even if you aren’t too into Call of Duty. (Read our full review)

It’s simple, but it’s addicting. You’ll probably end up playing this game until you physically can’t anymore due to your arms hurting so bad.
