Best Action-Adventure Video Games


The Top Ten

1 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Gerudo valley stuck in my head

This is a great gsme - winfreyb


2 Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

That was the best at his time, no doubt. I played it 2 years after the release and that was still gorgeous. The Episode 4 should also on this list.

3 Grand Theft Auto IV
4 Resident Evil 4

RE4 was the first in the series to ditch the tank controls, awkward shooting mechanics, ridiculous puzzles, and any mention of a virus starting with a "T" or "G" for an action heavy extravaganza. And thank god they did, cause it's hard to remember life prior to this new bold direction for the franchise. - Alexandr

It's the best adventure game it has best graphics and cutsecnes and the story was great guys try this its best

5 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
6 Grand Theft Auto III
7 Red Dead Redemption

This game is the best! It has a great story, amazing atmosphere, and the best gameplay. This should be on top.

8 Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
9 Ninja Gaiden Black
10 Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

Prince of persia is old but gold

Underrated in this list

Absolutely underrated game on this list. deserves number 1 position on this favourite game of all time followed by god of war 2.i am sorry god of war 2 follows this game. complete masterpiece

20 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
21 Batman: The Telltale Series
22 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

The best of the Zelda series - winfreyb

23 The Last of Us
24 Fallout 4
25 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
26 Metroid Prime: Trilogy

Howis this NOT number 1? I don't care what ocarina of Time Fanboys say! THS GAME RULES! NOT EVEN UNCHARTED IS AS GOOD! - HeavyDonkeyKong

27 Shadow of the Colossus
28 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
29 Crash Bandicoot
30 Jak 3

That game is great, mixing gameplay of crash bandicoot (sorry if spelled wrong) and Grand Theft Auto (being invulnerable after hit and stealing vehicles and mounts, having two simple attacks plus complicated weapons). But most importantly you can transform to dark jak (aims on attack) or light jak (aimed on defense) each with his respective powers

Best game ever!... great gamelay... exelent story.. unique grafics.. just maaan

31 Undertale
32 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Best game of all time

This game is a Zelda game! (+3 points).
It has the best combat system and you know it(+5 points).
It has the best compnion evaaar! (+midna points).
A new villian... I mean zant was almost most of the game the villian so I think he is the MAIN villian of the game. (+not ganondork points).
And it has the BEST items ever! (Speed wheel, huge metal ball, hawk googels...
Overall: 10/10

33 Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal

Best 3D Platformer Action Adventure game of all time. That is all I have to say about this masterpiece.

This game is epic, this list is dumb RE5, MGS2 and all the Grand Theft Auto titles are not action adventure games, plus they're all crap

R&C are my favorite. game characters and from 1 to 3 (up your arsenal) the game was so sweet! Simple gameplay I know, but very fun and there are a lot of weapons to use.

R and C would KILL erry1 here. link would die first, then prince of Persia, then drake. dr. nefarious is the best villain ever, he's better than stupid glados, who was in only one sucky game.

34 Batman: Arkham City
35 Assassin's Creed
36 Mortal Kombat X

This game sucks

37 Metal Gear Solid
38 Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater
39 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
40 Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One
41 Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped

Two words: come on guys!

42 Spyro: A Hero's Tail
43 Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back
44 Spyro: Year of the Dragon
45 Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!
46 Soul Calibur V

My friend Jon told me soul calibur is an adventure game

47 Dead Space 3
48 Cave Story
