If you're the type that prefers a more hands-on approach, then you might want to look into action games. Action games are video games that focus on challenging the player every chance possible, often involving combat or . They tend to be fast-paced and require quick reflexes. Popular examples of action games include the Batman: Arkham, Call of Duty, and Assassin's Creed franchises. Whether you're looking for heart-pounding thrills or just a fun way to relieve some stress, action games are a great option.

Big Time

Big Time is a multiplayer action RPG where you team up with friends to adventure across time and space.  Every dungeon is procedurally generated, offering players precious NFT and non-NFT loot along their way while offering a special experience every time you boot up the game.

The game features a variety of enemies, including insects, robots, and even a Tyrannosaurus Rex, which is sure to keep you on your toes. All these elements combined make for an engaging action experience, and puts Big Time as a nominee for the GAM3 Awards Best Action title.


Illuvium_best action game.png

Illuvium is a collectible NFT RPG game and auto-battler rolled into one. An open-world RPG experience in the overworld, where you mine, harvest, discover, capture, and fight over 100+ "Illuvials", deadly beasts who rule this alien world—each possessing hybrid synergies and unique abilities.

We are yet to get hands-on experience with the Overworld open-world aspect of Illuvium but if the auto-battler's public beta quality is anything to go off of then we are in for a treat.


Metalcore_best action game.png

MetalCore offers a first-person mechanized combat game set in an expansive open world where an all-out war breaks out in a dystopian future on an alien planet. The game allows you to enjoy it cooperatively in its PvE mode as well as online PvP 50v50 mega-battles.

The Battle Zone game mode can be won in a variety of ways, which is why we describe it as a mixture of all popular shooter modes. The first faction to complete any of the eligible objectives, wins the game. It is worth mentioning that Battle Zone is a dynamic arena where the stakes are high. Every player enters with a limited number of respawns, and once they're gone, they're kicked out and replaced by another player in the queue. An intense mechanism that keeps the stakes high!

Guild of Guardians

Guild of Guardians brings a top quality game to mobile web3 players to enjoy. With a diverse roster of characters to choose from and incredibly engaging gameplay in every session, the game manages to keep you captivated for hours trying to clear as many dungeons and upgrade your lineup.

When you are in a dungeon, you will find tons of monsters, bosses, and traps. Also in each dungeon are loot resources that can be gathered by players. These things are often used later on by players to craft stronger equipment or level up their heroes.


Superior_best action game.png

Superior is one of Gala Games' many great quality titles. As a co-op third-person shooter, Superior has you fighting against all the superheroes who've turned into villains. You will have to bring back safety to the city and find some way to stop them. Every time you start playing, you will be overpowered and outgunned with little opportunity for your character to make it through.

The core experience of Superior currently depends on the three heroes available: Ronin, Murmur, and Nomad. Each one has its own playing style, which would push you to communicate with your teammates and pick the best composition before diving in to slay your enemies. 

Who do you think will walk away with the GAM3 Awards Best Action trophy? Which one do you enjoy playing the most? Share this article and tag us on any of our socials to let us know.
