The best Bond game ever is GoldenEye. Nothing will ever beat playing on clunky controllers on tube TVs while  watching everyone else’s screens. This game might be okay. It’s not a straight up Skyfall game, but it’s related to the movie. Still, might be okay. It is James Bond.

Amazon:
James Bond: 007 Legends is an Action-Adventure First-Person Shooter set to release during the fiftieth anniversary of the James Bond film franchise. The overall storyline of the game is woven together through mission play that is based on the plots of several Bond movies, including the 2012 release, “Skyfall.” Additional features include: investigative, surveillance and stealth skills, dynamic freeform melee action, signature Bond weapon, gadget and vehicle play scenarios, Iconic villains, and diverse multiplayer options.

PC

Fight to keep the anarchy going or restore civilization. For those of you that are a fan of the real-world world destroyed, take it.  A lot of folks like the Fallout games for that reason, and while this isn’t a nuclear boom that forces the United States into destruction, I’m sure there’s plenty of strangeness to be had.

IGN:
Ravaged is a online multiplayer-only first person shooter game set upon a post-apocalyptic Earth devastated by natural disasters caused by the sun’s solar flares. Engage in battle with weapons and vehicles in fierce, never-ending combat scenarios that involve skill-based gameplay and team objectives.

This game chronicles the struggle between the “Resistance” and the “Scavengers” as they fight one another in order to gain an upper hand in an ongoing war for survival, territory and resources. In general, the Scavengers are an outnumbering, oppressive, murdering group of lawless criminals that wish to claim all land and resources for themselves. They will stop at nothing in order to accomplish their goal. The Resistance is a group of resistance fighters hell bent on restoring civilization. These civilians were able to seek shelter as the world succumbed to natural disasters during the year 2012, taking with them precious goods and weapons while the criminals and less fortunate lived off the land.
