Action games are significantly different than the other game genre’s because these games tend to focus more on challenges that have to deal with hand-eye coordination, reaction- time, and much more. There are many games that blur the lines between action/adventure/first person shooter games, but today we’ll look at the top ten games that are predominately action games.

09. Shadow Complex
The game starts off in a deceiving manor and you quickly realize you’re the unwilling hero in the game who is forced to save his girlfriend and at the same time stop a group from destroying the government.
