Games You Should Play If You Like Ghost Of Tsushima

Games Like Ghost Of Tsushima

This is one of those games that you go out and buy a whole PlayStation for just so you can play it (exclusive and whatnot, you get it). But what about when you’ve completed it? Like, 100%, platinum-level completed it? Well, then you come to this article and get your next open-world RPG adventure fix! We’ve compiled eleven games just like Ghost of Tsushima that are sure to get you feeling like you’re back in feudal Japan (or maybe elsewhere?) in no time. With that said, let’s start!

1. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Stealth and casual gameplay are nice, but let’s face it, some of us are to fight for our lives in the video games we play, and that’s exactly what Sekiro makes you do. Forget the forgiving parry and dodge system of Ghost of Tsushima; this game’s bosses will kill you so many times you’ll be reading them like a book by the time you beat them and still only barely get by!

That’s part of the fun in Sekiro, though – the challenge is what makes this game so satisfying and rewarding to play. Also, along with being difficult, the combat is super fun too. Looking at the setting of the game, it’s also in feudal Japan, but the world isn’t as open and explorable as perhaps some of us would like. At times, though, you might have trouble telling this game apart from Ghost of Tsushima!

As for as alternatives go, this is as close as you can get to the original game, and you get to do that all while experiencing a completely new gameplay and mechanic system! Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is playable on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.

2. Elden Ring

Elden Ring

On the note of challenging games, who can forget this controller-breaker that somehow won the game of the year too? Jokes aside, this game is one of the best Souls games ever, and there are a lot of reasons why! But first, let’s talk about the gameplay.

In Elden Ring, you get to explore a huge open world filled with tons of unique enemies everywhere you go. Some of these are easy kills, while others are…well, expect to feel some rage on the road to beating those guys. But, like Sekiro and, to an extent, Ghost of Tsushima, that’s where the satisfaction and fun lie! Learning how to beat every boss, each of which is unique in the way they fight, is one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve ever had in any game. To try out Elden Ring, you can get it on PlayStation, Xbox, or PC.

3. God of War

God of War

You can’t leave out God of War on a list of RPGs; it’s just that good! We’ve all come across a God of War game since we’ve been gaming from our childhoods, and we know they never disappoint. This time around, though, they hit it out of the park!

God of War, like Ghost of Tsushima, has a huge open world to explore that’s as pretty as it is detailed. In it, you get to fight lots of different enemies, do tons of fun side-quests, and engage with a story that you’ll not soon forget! Plus, combat is one of the best parts of the whole game; the way you get to slice and dice and yeet your enemies is just way too satisfying.

If you’re looking for a super story-orient open-world RPG that doesn’t hold back any punches in its difficulty either, you can find God of War on PC and PlayStation.

4. Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Shadow of the Tomb Raider gives us Lara Croft’s best impression of Batman as she gets a grappling hook in this sequel and gets to swing around tricky areas! Tomb Raider games are a classic and have been for a long time, with this one being no different.

The gameplay here isn’t sword-fighting in feudal Japan – instead, you get guns and bows and anything else you can find to do your bidding for you. Like Ghost of Tsushima, stealth is a big factor here, and it’ll do you a lot of good if you opt for that instead of going in guns-blazing! Not that you can’t do that, though, and every once in a while, you definitely should, just for fun.

Add to that a game that looks as good as if you’re literally inside a movie in real life, and you have one of the most unforgettable experiences ever! If you’re convinced, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is available on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.

5. Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn

Remember Skynet from the Terminator movies? Think that, but it’s taken over animals and dinosaurs (and some more whacky stuff), and it’s out to get you! Well, not all of it; some of the robo-animals are actually docile and will become your friends if you convince them.

That’s my favorite part of the game, but you’re probably interested in the gameplay itself, which I’m glad to report is open-world based and full of beautiful details and fun side quests! As Aloy, you’re going to be doing most of your fighting with your bow as you move around stealthily, but when you’re out in the open with everyone rushing you, you can fight with anything you have. That means spears, staffs, and so much more, making the combat super unique and varied in every fight.

Coming from Ghost of Tsushima, you’ll appreciate the focus on stealth and melee combat, but Horizon Zero Dawn is definitely its own game and will make for a really fun, new experience for you. To try it, you can get it on PlayStation or PC.

6. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

I know Valhalla is out, but this is my favorite AC game (from the recent ones) for a couple of reasons, not least of which is the fact that you get to Sparta-kick enemies off of cliffs! Always gets a giggle out of me.

The gameplay in Odyssey is like most AC games, but bigger. The map is literally one of the biggest I’ve ever seen in an RPG, and getting from one end to the other can be quite the task! But on the way, you get to interact with lots of NPCs and characters that usually have side quests for you as well, making it a pretty fun journey all in all.

The combat here has a bit of everything, swords, staffs, spears, and more. If you prefer the stealthy approach, you can also do that. More options are always nice to have! To try out Odyssey, you’ll need a PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, or PC.

7. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

How does this game always manage to end up on every recommendations list? It’s simple – it’s just that good! The Witcher 3 is one of the most well-renowned RPGs ever to release, with a story that is affected at every point by the dialogues you choose, combat that has you dodging and parrying multiple attacks at once, and so much more.

The world of The Witcher is open, diverse, and full of exciting quests at every turn. The side-quests in The Witcher 3 are pretty much half the experience with how good they are. Now, unlike Ghost of Tsushima, you won’t get too much stealth gameplay here, but the combat is pretty similar overall in the way you fight with swords and a dash of spells here and there.

Also, once you’ve seen the beauty of feudal Japan in Ghost of Tsushima, dated graphics just don’t cut it anymore. Well, I’m glad to report that you won’t have to deal with that at any point here, either! Especially with mods, this game will put some current-gen AAA games to shame. To play Witcher 3, you have a ton of options to choose from – PS, PC, Xbox, or Switch.

8. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Hey, you, you’re finally awake. It’s 2023, and you’re looking for the perfect alternative to Ghost of Tsushima, and Skyrim would like to say howdy! Don’t get me wrong, there are no cowboys here, but there is a lot of RPG, sword-fighting fun that’ll keep you hooked until the sun comes up.

In Skyrim, freedom is the name of the game. Want to join a guild of thieves and become a master sneak thief? Go for it. Fancy yourself a werewolf or a vampire lord? The choice is yours. And when you’re all done with the side stuff, there’s the story where you’re the prophesied Dragonborn, destined to save the land from a terrifying dragon apocalypse! No pressure, though.

From grand adventures to vast landscapes and ancient ruins where you’ll be fighting all kinds of mythical creatures, there’s a lot here that’s similar to Ghost of Tsushima and lots that aren’t! That’s what makes this such a fun alternative to our favorite game – available on PC, PS, Xbox, and Switch.

9. Yakuza 0

Yakuza 0

Yakuza 0 is like a crazy disco party set in 1980s Tokyo’s underworld. You’ll join Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima, a pair of yakuza dudes with more drama than the Netflix top 10 charts. The game throws you straight into epic street fights, where you’ll also be exploring the city’s nooks and crannies and dabbling in bizarre activities like karaoke showdowns and running your own cabaret club!

It’s a wild mix of crime, over-the-top brawling, and hilarious absurdity that’ll leave you wondering if you accidentally did some hard drugs and didn’t realize. Compared to Ghost of Tsushima, you’ll get Japan and RPG elements, but that’s all for the similarities with this alternative. Instead of a close-knit relationship, I wanted one alternative to be a super unique and far-out one that’ll make for a new experience in a mostly new genre! To play Yakuza 0, you can purchase it on PS, PC, or Xbox and prepare yourself to laugh more than you ever have before.

10. Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2

Game of the year? Game of the decade? Whatever you wanna call it, there’s no way RDR 2 doesn’t make it to a list of RPGs! The detail, the campaign, the freedom, and the side-quests, it’s all just so perfect and almost unreal.

You’ve probably got that one friend in your circle who’s always raving about this game, and honestly, I’m that friend because this game really is that good. The gameplay here is in a huge open world at the start of the 20th century where you’re a cowboy trying to survive against the law (yup, you’re wanted!). In your adventures, gunfights are a regular, and horses are your primary means of transport, so you get the proper cowboy experience.

Compared to Ghost of Tsushima, you’ll be missing the streets of Japan, but you won’t be disappointed by the landscapes and towns of Lemoyne and New Hanover! Towns are bustling with activity, beautiful landscapes, and lots of things to do at every corner. If you’re looking to trade in your sword for a pair of revolvers, you absolutely cannot miss Red Dead Redemption 2 – playable on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.

11. Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor

You know it’s gonna be good when it’s based on a J.R.R. Tolkien novel! Shadow of Mordor is a dark and thrilling fantasy adventure set in the world of Middle-earth. As Talion, a ranger imbued with wraith powers, you embark on a vengeful quest against the forces of evil. The game features an open-world environment, intense combat, and the Nemesis System, where orc enemies dynamically evolve and remember your encounters. Forget a toxic ex; now you’ve got orcs holding grudges against you!

The world is one of the best settings ever for a game – you get to traverse Mordor’s diverse landscapes, engage in sword fights and stealthy assassinations, and uncover the mysteries of the wraith world. This game combines gripping storytelling, powerful abilities, and the allure of Tolkien’s universe, making for a really fun and unique experience that’ll stick around in your memory for a while to come.

Sharing the open-world format with Ghost of Tsushima, Shadow of Mordor immerses you in a dark and fantastical realm filled with legendary creatures and rich lore, which makes not only a great game on its own but also a really good alternative to your favorite game. To play it, you’ll need a PlayStation, Xbox, or PC.

That’s about it, folks! From the adrenaline-fueled acrobatics of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice to the historical odyssey of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, there’s one game for pretty much anyone to immerse themselves in these mythical worlds. Still, if there’s a game I missed that should’ve been on this list, feel free to give it an honorable mention! Until next time, good luck and have fun with all your adventures.
