If you love watching anime as much as you enjoy playing them, this is just the guide. Whether you’re looking for an RPG like Log Horizon, Project QT or Sword Art Online, or an action game like One Piece, Naruto, or Hunter x Hunter, we got them all carefully assembled here in this article.
Some of the content in these games maybe a little too suggestive, but all in all, these titles are well worth your time and are plenty of fun.
1. Project QT
The first entry on our list may be a little too raunchy for some of the younger players here, but as long as you’re 18 and above, it should be fine. Project QT is a puzzle game that is part RPG and part action.
Project QT’s story revolves around an experiment that goes wrong in the arctic where a black hole opens up and unleashes a devastating virus that engulfs the entire planet. Your duty in the game is to stop the infection by choosing one of many adorable monster girls and ultimately save the planet.
The gameplay mechanics for every mission involves a mix of both turn-based combat and puzzles. Be warned however, the game gets tougher with each mission you pass. It is up to you to come up with the most appropriate strategy and equip yourself with the most suitable weapons to best your foes.
You play one of many all-female characters in this game and upgrade them with every mission you complete. There’s also a distinct lack of clothing that you might encounter with your characters with every upgrade as well. But if you’re in this only for the action, you better strap yourself in for a perfect time.
2. Gunz 2: The Second Duel
Up next is an unrelenting third-person shooting game by the name of Gunz 2. You choose between six different types of player classes, each with their own unique ability to help you play the game.
The game was first released as an early access title in Korea back in 2011. It was created by a South Korean-based game company called MAIET Entertainment, and as you can tell by the title, this game is a follow-up to 2003 Gunz: The Duel.
Like the game before this, players can customize the game to their liking and choose to opt for the defensive or offensive style of game play, both of which can be played at ease with Gunz 2. The game utilizes mechanics based on augmented reality, allowing players to tumble, dodge and weave.
There are over five different kinds of modes as well as six authentic maps available at the moment. But besides that, there’s also plenty of other stuff to explore within the game that will have you hooked until the very end.
3. Elsword Online
Elsword Online is a 2.5D action MMORPG made by South Korean company KOG Studios. It utilizes real time action gameplay and features both PVP and PVE modes. The game is set in a comic book style environment featuring anime-themed visuals with elements of RPG.
The game is user-friendly in that it appeases both rookies and experienced gamers. The controls are quite responsive and intuitive, easily allowing players to string together whatever combos their button-mashing fingers can offer them. The more the players play with their characters, the more they’ll have a chance to evolve in terms of fighting style and their voices.
Elsword includes over 13 playable characters, each with their own backstory and unique abilities. Despite the game being free-to-play, there are some costumes and items that need to be collected in-game when visiting the “Item Mall” and pay using real money.
If you’re looking for nothing but pure and unrelenting action using your fists, feet, weapons and magic, then that is what you’re going to get with Archeblade. It is a free-to-play 3D multiplayer fighting game which, like the other titles on this list, is made by the South Korean game developer named Codebrush Games.
The game has been influenced by a number of other historically popular fighting games like Street Fighter and Tekken. But besides that, the game also features first-person shooting modes as well. You get to choose between 14 different types of characters with their own unique set of combos and anger skills, all while made in a semi-animated style. Only the best character that matches your style gameplay will be the perfect fit for you.
Wakfu is the timeless classic among free-to-play gamers as well as anime lovers alike. It’s a fantasy-based MMORPG and unlike other titles on this list, is made by a French game developer company by the name of Ankama Games. Interestingly, the game is actually based on a French animated television series titled Wakfu: The Animated Series that was produced by an animation studio named Ankama Animation. What’s even more interesting is that the show itself preceded and was loosely based on a game called Dofus that was released back in September 2004, which also spawned an animated series of its own in 2013.
This tactical turn-based game was released on February 29, 2012 on Microsoft Windows, Linux and macOS. The game features characters from more than 15 different classes that you can choose as male or female and opt for whatever path of the game you choose. Besides combat, players can also engage in a variety of other activities like crafting as well as molding the game world itself based on their interaction with other NPCs.
6. Twin Saga
The world of Twin Saga revolves around a couple of “twin goddesses” – Marisa and Amaris – as well as how humans are doing what the world that’s left to them after the goddesses go off to war with one another, with the “evil” twin emerging victorious. You will assume the role of an orphaned human who is the last hope for humanity survival.
The game offers a mix of PVP and PVE fighting styles and the mobile housing system grants each player a customizable home base – known as “Terracottage” – that continues to be upgraded as you progress throughout the game. Not only will you be able to work on your crafting and professions, you’ll also be able to master every class and skills to help you persevere in countless battles along the way.
Whether you prefer to go full-on physical in Archeblade or be strategic in Project QT, you'll never be short on Anime Games. You just have to be a little smart with your approach like we did here for you.
