7. Far Cry Primal
That’s right, Far Cry Primal is set in 10,000 BC, a time when cavemen wielding spears, bows and arrows ruled the world. Playing as a “beast master” named Takkar you have to take on two hostile tribes: fire worshippers the Izilla and a bunch of cannibals known as the Udam. These threaten the existence of your own tribe in the land of Oros, set somewhere in central Europe. Far Cry Primal still feels like a Far Cry game despite the Stone Age setting and caveman theme, though. Sting bombs take the place of grenades, while Ubisoft made up for the lack of vehicles by letting you ride animals such as sabre-tooth tigers here.
