6. NBA 2K13
- Length: 100 hours
- You will mostly be: pushing your custom player to the top
The finest sports sim you've never played, with a career mode deeper than PES and FIFA put together. MyCareer alone can last 100+ hours.
7. SAINT'S ROW THE THIRD
- Length: 50 hours
- You will mostly be: rampaging
Volition's free-roaming crime spree offers hours of unscripted fun. Swing a dildo-bat, race tuned-up vehicles or break the person-chucking record.
8. RED DEAD REDEMPTION
- Length: 65 hours
- You will mostly be: hunting and skinning wild animals
It's the random events of Rockstar's wild west game that'll see you saddle up for more. Animal attacks, bandit ambushes and damsels in distress are dotted expertly around the world, not to mention the 'gotta catch 'em all' challenges. John Marston's story is equally gripping too.
9. BORDERLANDS 2
- Length: 150 hours
- You will mostly be: searching for the perfect weapon set
So. Many. Guns. With a glut of side-missions that reward you with rare weapons and kit, it's no wonder you'll plough on to hoover them all up. Every inch of Pandora is littered with artillery-filled containers, so you'll want to explore the whole map.
10. DARK SOULS
- Length: 70 hours
- You will mostly be: dying, but coming back stronger
Unforgiving? Yes. Unfair? Never. Dark Souls is a zen-balanced action RPG that lets you become an untouchable demon slayer. You can fudge the first few hours easily, but put the hours in to learn strategies and balance your weapons, and you'll discover a game of infernal depths.
