Best Action Adventure 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

5 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Overall: 10/10

30 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.

31 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

35 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
