(Last Updated On: December 1, 2017)

[Disclosure: This is a paid promotional post]

For a fact, video games have been in existence for nearly half a century, since the early 1970‘s. The first ever coin arcade game known as Computer Space, was founded by Ted Dabney alongside Nolan Bushnell in Silicon Valley. In 1972, the classic Pong followed suit and became the first home-based video game. In the current era, programmers are always developing a cornucopia of games that are not only for kids but continuously explore complex adult ideas, thereby engaging older players on a more emotional and deeper level. Furthermore, these games are smarter and more of interactive art than time-wasting, brainless distractions. As such, here at One Angry Gamer, we have compiled a list of the top recommendations.

I Am Alive

It is a thrilling adventure revolving around the post-apocalypse world. The entire earth’s population has been wiped out, and you as the participant, are making a return to your home city, which consists of nothing more than dust and rubble. Thus, you require to climb, fight and scavenge your way to survive, while keenly monitoring your health as well as stamina. The other challenge is that there is a scarcity of available ammunition in an environment where the use of a weapon can prove to be significantly effective.

The Elder Scrolls V-Skyrim

Regardless of the fact that Skyrim attire can be a tad bit of a put-off, there is a ton of adventure which will carve an ear-to-ear smile on your face. For starters, not only is there a sorcery backdrop, but there are also swords and a plethora of dialogue options (60,000). Additionally, there is the requirement to break everything open, in an attempt to find valuable treasure, regardless of a dragon invasion. During the attack, players have the freedom of doing adult activities such as picking flowers, getting married or getting drunk in a bar. It is through this myriad of dialogue lines that the developers have the opportunity to explore deeper-rooted issues such as terrorism, racism and the interrelation of the state with religion.

One Chance

In this game, a scientist known as John Pilgrim alongside his team has accidentally generated a harmful pathogen which is destroying all living cells in the world. With that in mind, a player must make a vital choice on how to utilize the last six days left to live. A coterie of the options includes spending time with close friends and family or trying to discover a cure.  However, participants only get one chance to make a decision, and as such, there are no replays. Lastly, it facilitates a unique experience as there is only one ending for each game.

Furthermore, it comes with intuitive game controls permitting you to traverse forward as you find your way while giving you rewards for significant accomplishments.

Fire Emblem Fates

Tragedy falls both ways in this battle, irrespective of what the hero in you does. Your friends and family either die or regularly retreat.

    I always wondered why my kids are obsessed with video games until I looked up the best video games for adults and found myself at this site. These days I beat my kids at the hours I spend on my tab playing real money slots, I’m completely hooked. The best part of all this is that I win real prizes and exude a lot of excitement. Now I get why my kids are into these games, they are awesome.

      I completely get you girl. These days I have something in common with my kids, playing video games. If you are a parent in the 21st century you know how extremely difficult this is.

  • Haha, this list is full of lies!! If I gave my grandma a tab to try out any of these games, she’d totally hate them. For starters, the games here are irrelevant to her. I mean why would a person my nana’s age want to play a game based on the post-apocalyptic era. Yes I am talking about ‘I am Alive’. Most of our elderlies don’t even believe in that kind of stuff. Unless by adult they mean individuals from the ages 18 to 30, then this list would be totally relevant. But I tend to believe that the fact that I see a picture of two elderlies on the site, they are referring to really old people. Please one angry gamer, do me a favor and create a more relevant list of adult games. Thank you.

  • The games listed in this review fail to mention the game developers, what the games entail, where I can access these games. If you fail to provide all this information how I am I to believe that indeed these are the best adult games ever. And what’s with the indecent anime that keep popping up on the ad section of this page? They are definitely a turn off and makes me never want to visit this site again.

    • No one is forcing you to visit the site, let alone view the ads section. If you don’t like looking at sexy anime, deal with it, instead of posting up comments like a child throwing tantrums at their mommy.

    Honestly, I like this site and majority of the content, but the sponsored articles suck. Big time. It’s all marketspeak by seo experts who took degrees on marketspeak to speak marketspeak at focus groups.

    I’d rather go to 8chan and have PENIS PUMPS > MFW MY DICK GETS BIGGER shoved into my face. At least the Aussie advertiser there was willing to break the 4th wall and nudge the audience like an honest retard. Man, I do miss 8ch shitpost ads (this was during the time up to Trump’s election when everything you see was a breath of fresh air.)

    So you could probably take a page out of that playbook and open up advertising to indie devs who are willing to make ads a bit more risque, just towing the very fine line in common decency. (basically out there while not scaring away credit card processing companies / google ads / etc.) It would be sure to be very entertaining. I for one would love to plaster this site with art from my crazy game one of these days.

    • So you could probably take a page out of that playbook and open up advertising to indie devs who are willing to make ads a bit more risque, just towing the very fine line in common decency.

      Not a bad suggestion, but we scare most devs away being politically incorrect and running a lot of no-nonsense news.

      And yeah, we gotta be careful because Google/Amazon have some stupidly strict rules about content on the site (hence why we have to plaster censored bars across NSFW mods and stuff).

    Let me go dig up my grandparents corpse’s first, then resurrect them in an ancient indian burial ground. Then, I can sit them down and have them play Skyrim and Forza. They’ll totally understand what’s happening in front of them on the television. While I’m at it, I should introduce my beta fish to the concept of gaming. He has no idea what he’s been missing all these years!

    I don’t understand who this was aimed at. The elderly, like the ones in the picture? Or, adults already playing adult games?

  • daniel_ream

    I don’t know what this is, but it wasn’t good. I accept the need for paid promotions in niche sites; I don’t mind commercials if they’re relevant and non-obtrusive. But this? Only six games listed, one of them an antique browser game, and it’s debatable if FEF even qualifies as an “adult” game. No links to where the games can be found or indication of what platforms they’re for. Sophomoric “history of video games” cut and paste opening paragraph, and the writing overall is incredibly poor and smells faintly of ESL.

    OAG, you can do better than this.

      Be glad that they are being upfront enough and telling us they are paid articles. On other places out there this would just be presented as a genuine no bias article.
