The best third-person action-adventure games

A third-person action-adventure is a genre of video game that combines elements of action and adventure gameplay while utilizing a third-person perspective. In this type of game, the player controls a character and navigates through a three-dimensional game world.

The third-person perspective means that the camera is positioned behind the character, providing a view of their actions and surroundings. This viewpoint allows players to see their character's movements, interactions, and the environment from a more cinematic angle.

The action component of the genre refers to the emphasis on fast-paced combat, platforming, and physical challenges. The adventure aspect involves exploration of the game world, solving puzzles, and unraveling a storyline or completing quests. Examples of popular third-person action-adventure games include the Tomb Raider series, Assassin's Creed series, and Alone in the Dark series.
