Pick up the Dark Souls Trilogy or Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and you will be exposed to an unforgettable and immensely rewarding experience.  The brainchild of Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R.R.

Square Enix, which was once regarded as the best JRPG, released Final Fantasy VII in 1997. Internationally, it sold 12.8 million units. It set new records, shattering sales projections.

The story of Kratos is far from over. After the record-breaking success of God of War in 2018, God of War: Ragnarok will be released in 2022.

In this game, things do not end peacefully, but Kratos will be in your mind for a long time to come.

The first sequel of this game can be described as an open-world simulator. While it lacked a strong narrative style, a robust parkour system and engaging combat were the hallmarks of this release. Dying Light 2 is characterized by the additions of new weapons, craftable items, and abilities. Get ready to trample more zombies!

The Two-Mouth Woman, Starving Skeletons, and the Slit-Mouthed Woman are some of Japan’s most terrible demons and ghosts. In GhostWire: Tokyo, you fight these demons and ghosts. The game involves controlling a young Japanese man named Akito, who battles Yokai.
