The Best Action Adventure Games

Like an action adventure movie, these games present grand scale adventures with deluxe storylines. The action comes in the gameplay with quick movement, combat, and puzzle sequences. The story progresses through action sequences. There's also an emphasis of flowing narrative as compared to a more methodical puzzle adventure or focused interactivity of a point and click adventure.
