Best games on Stadia

There are so many games available on Google Stadia it’s hard to know where to start. So we’re here to help. We’ve picked out our top ten best games on Stadia for you to peruse at your leisure.

Cowboy sat on a horse overlooking a sunset in Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2

The coolest cowboy in town is back (sorry Clint Eastwood!). An absolutely massive open-world adventure with jaw dropping scenery, a myriad of sidequests and intriguing characters, and a hugely enveloping main story. This game’s name precedes it, and it’s easy to see why. Also, as it’s a prequel, you’re also good to go even if you haven’t played the first.

Super Bomberman R Online

A simple, fun little game modeled after recent Battle Royale titles, Super Bomberman R tasks you to survive your board, move onto new boards, fight new enemies, and more. With its online elements allowing you to go wild as you bomb your friends and family, and the fact that it’s free to all Stadia users, it’s a great way to kill an afternoon.

Player aiming a gun at an enemy in Rage 2

Rage 2

Madcap, satisfying action and tonnes of mindless fun to be had here. Combining pretty much every trope of every FPS ever with plenty of flaws, Rage 2 somehow still presents itself as a shameless and loveable romp through shooter history. It’s fast paced. It’s fun. And if you like going ham with a bunch of guns, it’s probably a great pick for you.

Player aiming a gun at monsters in Doom

Doom (2016)

The 2016 reboot of the classic Doom shooter series is easily one of our top picks for Stadia shooters. With the thrumming music score that seems to know exactly what you’re doing at every point, the streamlined gameplay, and the slick visuals, you will feel like a total badass in no time.

Cris Tales

A beautiful little indie game populated by stunning lore, a unique gameplay system, and beautiful hand-drawn graphics, Cris Tales is a genuinely enchanting little adventure. It features an intriguing time skipping function, plenty of magical misadventures, and a handsome little frog. If you want to know more, check out our Cris Tales review.

Characters running away from an ominous figure in the snow in Destiny 2

Destiny 2

Another fun freebie shooter, Destiny 2 takes you across alien landscapes full of icky critters. Stadia also offers cross-save support, allowing you to play across multiple systems or transfer your save from other platforms, making it pretty convenient for us all-round gamers. Dive in and have some quick battles, or take your time exploring its vast world as you please.

A Psycho in Borderlands 3

Borderlands 3

Okay, so no one can live up to Handsome Jack, but Borderlands 3 still stands as a pretty great entry into the awesome world of Borderlands. Loot. Shoot. Loot some more. And look cool while doing it! With multiple maps to explore, plenty of gimmicky guns to try out, and some pretty great DLC, it’s a fun, lighthearted misadventure with some great classes and characters – even if the plot doesn’t quite scratch all the hardcore fans’ itches.

Final Fantasy XV

Though Final Fantasy XV’s history was a bumpy road, and it has garnered a lot of hate for its stray from the usual Final Fantasy format, there is something to be said about cruising around the stunning open world with the boys in the back. Featuring fun characters, a unique combat style, gorgeous visuals, and some truly heartfelt moments, this is certainly a joy for most fans of action adventure RPGs.

Octopath Traveler

A nostalgic, 16-bit JRPG with beautifully elevated pixel art and typical Square Enix style turn-based combat. Boasting eight travellers, eight adventures, and eight roles to play, Octopath Traveller invites you on an epic journey through the vast and wondrous world of Orsterra, full of captivating stories and fearsome monsters.

A breathtaking emotional voyage through love and loss, Spiritfarer follows the story of Stella, who takes on the task of transporting anthropomorphic spirits to the afterlife. Fill your ship with useful tools and resources, grow your own gardens, and visit stunning settings, all while making the spirits’ last days on the realm as memorable and comfortable as possible. Check out our Spiritfarer review to learn more. We also have an exclusive Spiritfarer interview with the game’s Creative Director.

What is Google Stadia?

Google Stadia is a video games streaming service that lets you play games whenever you’re connected to wi-fi without the need to purchase hardware.

Both tiers feature gameplay at 60fps.
