3. Far Cry 4
You can ride elephants here, storming enemy outposts and hurling terrified soldiers to the air, clearing a base without firing a shot. There’s also a larger version of the outposts seen in the earlier games, as you get to storm the fortresses of dictator Pagan Min’s lieutenants. Pagan Min is a charismatic villain, although not quite as great as Vaas of Far Cry 3.
Playing as an American who travels to the exotic country of Kyrat, you join the Golden Path rebels, choosing different missions at each point in the story depending on which of its two leaders you listen to, the moral choices and atmosphere making this one great Far Cry game.
