A release that has redefined the sandbox genre, GTA V is the seventh main entry into the GTA series — developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. As of February 2023, the edition has sold over 175 million units worldwide.

The action-adventure game offers a thrilling and immersive open-world crime spree in the world of Los Santos and Blaine County— where players can explore a dynamic world, participate in heists, and engage in high-speed chases. From sprawling cityscape, stunning graphics, engaging storyline, vast array of activities, and an expansive online multiplayer mode, it’s a game that guarantees hours of entertainment.

Super Mario Bros

No list of best video games is complete without mentioning the iconic Super Mario Bros. The successor of the 1983 arcade game Mario Bros, this platform game was first released in 1985 for the Famicom in Japan, and redesigned for Nintendo consoles soon after — introducing the world to plucky Italian plumber, Mario, and his quest to rescue Princess Peach from the clutches of the evil Bowser.

Admired for its precise controls and cited as one of the key factors in reviving the video game industry after the 1983 crash, it has managed to rack up over a whopping 58 million copies worldwide. Boasting colourful graphics, catchy soundtrack, and addictive gameplay, Super Mario Bros. became an instant hit and remains a beloved classic to this day.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

With its breathtaking landscapes, rich lore, and limitless freedom, Skyrim offers a truly immersive experience where players can explore dungeons, slay dragons, and embark on countless quests. With its massive open world and endless possibilities, Skyrim is a game that can easily devour hundreds of hours of your time.


Having sold more than 238 million copies across its 22 platforms as of April 2021 — with this figure having certainly climbed higher in the two years since — Minecraft has earned its stripes as the most-sold video game of all time.

With its pixelated graphics and simple gameplay mechanics, this sandbox game continues to take the world by storm — allowing players to build and explore virtual worlds limited only by their imagination. Whether you’re constructing elaborate structures, delving into mysterious caves, or battling fearsome creatures, Minecraft offers endless hours of fun and excitement for all ages.

The Sims

Ever dreamt of building your own virtual world? Then The Sims is the franchise for you. Released in 2000 — selling over 200 million copies globally — this life simulation game allows players to create and control unique virtual characters, build their dream homes, shape the lives of their Sims, and let chaos ensue.

From choosing their careers and relationships to designing their homes and managing their daily activities, The Sims offers a unique and immersive experience where players can live vicariously through their digital creations. Originally created for PC, it has since become available on PS4, PS5, and Xbox consoles.

The Last of Us

An action-adventure survival horror game franchise — created by Naughty Dog and Sony Interactive Entertainment — The Last of Us is set in a post-apocalyptic United States overrun by infected creatures, and has sold over 37 million copies worldwide.

Players follow the journey of Joel and Ellie, as they navigate dangerous environments and encounter various challenges. Immersive gameplay, cinematic visuals, and a powerful narrative that tugs at the heartstrings make this a game that will leave a lasting impression.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons took the gaming world by storm in 2020 — having sold almost 40 million units since — providing players with a tranquil escape to a deserted island where they could create their own virtual paradise. In this life simulation game, players can customise their homes, interact with charming animal villagers, catch bugs, design their own clothing and furniture, as well as enjoy multiplayer with friends online.

One of the unique aspects of the game is its real-time gameplay — following the same time and season as the player’s real-life location, adding a sense of realism and immersion to the game. With its relaxing gameplay, adorable art style, and endless opportunities for creativity, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has become a beloved title for both casual and hardcore gamers alike.

These are just a few of the countless video games that have left an indelible mark on the entertainment space. Whether you’re a seasoned gamer or new to the scene, these titles have stood the test of time and continue to captivate players of all ages.
