AI has infested almost every aspect of the service industry. Although, the tech has been in use for over a decade in gaming and very less number of people actually realising it. The reason was simple, it was quite underdeveloped and it is still underdeveloped yet it has crossed leaps and bounds since then. The unpredictably of the enemy and the lifelike interactions that are becoming common in big games explains how effective AI is becoming. Therefore, if you wish to know about some of the top AI Games to play in 2018 then here is our list below.


About: The world is going crazy over Minecraft and the gameplay provides enough reason for it. Minecraft lets you create your own world from scratch. Be it simple homes or extravagant castles. The game gives you the capability of a piece of land to be converted into your own village. Also, while it is addictive and seems quite intelligent, it also feels equally funny at portions. The sole objective of the game is to defend yourself from the hoard of dangerous mobs. Minecraft lets you create your defenses and makes effective use of the AI. It is on the first position because it is something that deserves a place in the list of top AI games.

2.F.E.A.R 3

About: F.E.A.R 3 is the latest iteration of the F.E.A.R franchise. It is a first-person shooter game. In the game, the player will be playing as the point man who has been enhanced using genetic engineering. He is the protagonist from the initial game. There is another person in the line Alma who got pregnant at the ending of the second offering. She has been provided with Psychic powers. The core objective of the game is to kill the child from being born. This is a game that is so not high on graphics but the environment sound and the voice acting gives it a great gameplay. Also, the AI used for the bots is skewed compared to the predecessor but this doesn’t mean that the gameplay is short of anything. IGN gave it 8.0 and we also believe that it is a great game for fps lovers, therefore, the game has been mentioned in our list of top AI Games.

3.The Last of US 2

About: The Last of Us Part II has been one of the most anticipated games of all times. It also means that there have been a couple of improvements from the previous times too. Also, the game looks even better than the previous version. The initial game was set in a dystopian world where the sole objective of the player was to survive the zombie apocalypse and also lawless renegades on the way for resources. The second game start from where the first one ended. Although, this one also takes better advantage of including AI for the mechanics. It offers some of the best application of AI that you might be able to see in years. The interaction feels authentic, all the enemies displayed on screen seem quite realistic in terms of graphics and behaviour as well. This makes your journey of finding Ellie(protagonist of the game) way more engaging. It is one of the best offerings as far as the gameplay is concerned and the exceptional usage of AI makes it a great entry in the list of top AI games.

4.Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty

About: Ever defended yourself against a swarm of aliens, well, that is the whole concept of the game. It is a strategy based game that allows you to strategize against a swarm of enemies. Starcraft II has been with an impressive gameplay and multiple cutscenes to get you an accurate sense of story and drama. There initial tutorial and stages that will help newcomers know which unit does what and especially best for what. There is a whole lot of customisation that can be done and in-game graphics are also very great. This version doesn’t offer anything new in terms of mechanics or enemies but still manages well to become a great game. There are a variety of missions and the AI makes it worthwhile to play it. It is one of the best entries in the genre in this article and we are happy to include in our list of top AI games.

5.Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist

About: Tom Clancy’s game has always been at the center of providing great story-driven gameplay. Well, this one is not surely a disappoint in that cadre. In fact, the story is one of the stronger suites for this game. The villain is believable and the story feels quite convincing. If you are a stealth lover then this game would remind you of its earlier version Chaos Theory. The great thing though it disappoints in that department too and gets you engaging gameplay that will leave you immersed. Also, as mentioned before that the core of the gameplay is stealth which makes me say that the AI mechanics used in the game is absolutely stunning. Whatever the player does in a situation often leads to a series of chain reaction where all the enemies surrounding would immediately respond. This is something that creates a strong of you playing as a spy. It is another great one from the faction of Tom Clancy and the is a true marvel in terms of Spy Game. Blacklist is a great entry and deserves to be on the list of top AI games.

6.ARMA 3

About: ARMA 3 is a military-based game that tries to provide a sense of realism. Published by Bohemian Interactive, this game feels quite tactical. Also, the sublime AI that has been used in the enemy mechanics always keeps you at the edge of your seat. It is a tough one and can easily crank your head if you lack patience. In many games, people generally get satisfied with doing cool moves and killing multiple enemies. Although in the case of ARMA 3, the biggest satisfaction would be that the enemy is down. The moment you take a decision to make a shot even at a longer distance, the enemy can take a headshot even without a scope. The AI in this game has been equipped with great effectiveness which asks for your unbotched attention. It can take you to long trails of walking without actually providing anything worthwhile. Although, the essence of realism is something that would intrigue some players.  Overall, it is a great game that takes effective advantage of the AI tech and hence deserves to be in the list of top AI games.


About: Well, the look of the game might look a little controversial to people. Yupp, this one feels like as if you are playing Minecraft. Although, Creativerse is an entirely different game and comes with its own concept(except for the look I must agree). Creativerse is a sandbox free to play a survival game that was developed by Playful Corp. Here, the player is in the possession of a gauntlet from future that has the power to manipulate things. The players can claim their own world, defend their creations, or simply run around in an open-world. They have also made decent use of the AI and it is decent and can fit in our entries of top AI games.

8.Halo 5: Guardians

About: Halo 5: Guardians is a great co-op game where you are provided with a variety of missions to clear. Developed by 343 Industries, this one is a game that is graphically impressive and fun makes shooting a whole lot of fun. Did I tell you that it is a first-person shooter game? Well, it is and it’s great. The stages aren’t way too big although offers a lot of hidden places to keep you engaged. Here, you will be a part of a blue team and will be killing endless aliens. Also, since this is an AI-based article, yes the enemy motion and the overall feel of the game is great. In fact great enough to put in the list of top AI games.

9.Alien: Isolation

About: It is dark, gritty, and atmospheric. Also, yes we are talking about Alien: Isolation. It is one of the best alien games by far on the paper. Although, as you progress further in the game, it just loses its shine. Yes, the game is quite hideous and stressful throughout the campaign and this is all thanks to the wonderful AI use. Yeap, the game is actually made worse because of the effective AI. One can not predict the movement of the Xenomorph while it crawls, creeps, and lunges through vents and make angry and hissy sounds. The problem with the game is that it becomes a lot too repetitive because your ultimate aim is survival. Although, the Audio-Visual effects used in the game are a true blessing to it. It may not be the gameplay in the list but surely great use of AI making it worthy to be in our list of top AI games.

10.Farcry 5 

About: Welcome to the world of Farcry where you get a lot of shooting, loads of allies and enemies, loads of tech, angry animals, and psychedelics. The Farcry franchise is often considered one of the best in the open-world fps genre. Although, the fun doesn’t end here since just like the previous versions this has plenty of things to interact with. The first Farcry game came with AI capabilities that made the game way more intuitive and immersive. This one is also no short of that except this one upgrades itself to better graphics. There are various ways this game can be played, the player can be all shooting around or strategise to get a kill. Whatever your choice of gameplay be, this one has been saved for the best at last and deserves without a doubt a spot in our top AI games list.

So these were some of the top AI games that take effective use of the AI tech. It is quite ravishing to see how AI is affecting multiple industries and so is the case with gameplay.
