1. Half-Life: Alyx
This virtual reality 3D game released in 2020 made it to the top of our list. When you start the game, you’re going to be the shooter trying to seize a Combine superweapon.

2. Wolfstein: Youngblood
Another first-person shooter game makes the second on the list. Wolfstein: Youngblood has gotten mixed reviews from game critics, but it still qualifies as a very interesting 3D PC game. You can assume control as one of two players: Zofia Blazkowicz or Jessie. There’s also a cooperative multiplayer mode if you have someone around to play with. If you have no one around and need a partner, the game producers included an artificial intelligence substitute you can use. An interesting thing about this game is that you don’t have to follow a linear order to complete the missions. You also unlock new gear as you go on.
3. Borderlands 3

Also, you can either do it alone or choose the multiplayer option. In this game, when your enemies drop their weapon or gear after they are killed, you can pick them up and add them to yours.

You can decide to fight for survival alone, or get someone to join you with the multiplayer game option.
15. Bleeding Edge
When you play online games against real people, you feel more energized and determined to win. This is the same way you feel when playing Bleeding Edge. You have 12 characters to choose from, most of which have melee attacks. These characters fall into one of three main classes: support, damage, or tank. When you use ability related to one of these classes, those bars go down. Don’t worry. They have cooling periods, so they shoot back up gradually.
16. RAGE 2
In 2011, The first Rage game was released and we enjoyed it. Although the sequel to this game has come with mixed reviews, it still makes for a great 3D game for PC. Even if you don’t enjoy the characters, story, and open-world gameplay, you’ll enjoy the fantastic combat the game offers. The game is set in an apocalyptic open world where you assume control of the protagonist, Walker. You must fight enemies to survive in the world crawling with lots of bandits and mutants.
Walker’s guns do more damage to these monsters, causing their energy level to drop low.
17. The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan
Another survival horror video game is here. This interactive game is the first of already planned eight installments in the Dark Pictures Anthology series. So, if the first one is this good, we don’t know what we can expect when the remaining installments are released. This game takes a very different approach. It is presented as an uncompleted story that you, the player has to complete. Whatever decisions you make when playing the game alters the outcome of the game. The story centers on five individuals captured by pirates during an underwater expedition. All their choices determine whether they live or die.

You wake up as a voiceless being who gets called out by a bodiless voice. So you have to find the voice before you understand your existence.
