Respawn Entertainment (they of the Titanfall and Apex Legends) recently revealed its highly anticipated Star Wars project. Dubbed Jedi: Fallen Order, the single player adventure should prove to be quite a show despite it lacking any gameplay footage. A single-player game following up on Titanfall 2‘s amazing campaign, and with lightsabers to boot? How are we ever going to wait? Thankfully, gaming already has plenty of great Star Wars adventures to whet your appetite. Let’s sort through a few of them, shall we? Here are the top 10 best Star Wars games to play before diving into Jedi: Fallen Order later this year.
When you’re sorting through history trying to determine the top 10 best Star Wars games, you’re going to have trouble whittling down the list. If you’re someone who enjoyed BioWare’s previous work, or if your memory goes back to the SNES days, you may find the list lacking. The fact is that Star Wars games have been with us since the very beginnings of gaming. The earliest licensed experiences featured vector graphics and blocky AT-AT walkers. When your lineage goes all the way back to the Atari 2600, 10 entries just isn’t going to cut it.
So, what happens if you play through all of the top 10 best Star Wars games and it’s still not time to break into Jedi: Fallen Order? There are plenty of sci-fi games outside of the Star Wars banner that can still keep you satisfied. The aforementioned Titanfall 2 is a great start, as it shows just why Respawn fans are perhaps even more excited than Star Wars fanatics. Other similar adventures include Horizon: Zero Dawn on PlayStation 4 and the Destiny games certainly have a Star Wars vibe as well. Finally, if you want some sword fighting and don’t mind a lack of sci-fi, Ubisoft’s For Honor provides a great complex system that’s hard to beat.
