Action Games

Action games are the genre of games in which the stress is put on the dynamic action. Such titles demand from the player focus and quick reflexes in response to what’s happening on the screen. Action games incorporate a lot of subgenres such as shooters, racing games, and arcade games.

A good example of a dynamic action game is Call of Duty series. The scripted gameplay is full of cinematic explosions and feels like a Hollywood movie. The pace of the action is mind-blowing and the player is in the center of the events on the screen. Another example is the uncharted series in which the player takes the role of a treasure hunter by the name of Nathan Drake and the gameplay resembles Indiana Jones action movies.

One of the characteristics of an action game is dynamic gameplay. The developers try to create it in different ways. In order to maintain the fast tempo of gameplay, the developers don’t create open worlds for the sake of the linear storyline. It’s easier to build tension knowing which step the player is going to take next.

The games of this genre are usually depicted from the first-person perspective or third-person perspective which makes immersion greater. Action games have also elements of stealth game and platform games, which main role is to slow down the game pace and make the player ready for the final confrontation with the boss. An ideal example is the God of War series, in which spectacular dismembering of the enemies often gives away to platform section which required concentration.

It’s quite difficult to give an exact definition of what action games are. Most of the games of this kind are often a synthesis of many other genres, but in the overwhelming majority of times, they include elements of fast-paced action.
