Sci-Fi has always been a popular gaming and movie theme that tends to attract the masses. From the early days of the Alien films that drew in some and terrified others, to shows like The Expanse and the Severance, or even hit movie franchises like Star Wars, we just can’t seem to get enough of this theme. 

Perhaps it’s the thought of escaping Earth, or the idea that there’s other intelligent life out there and that humans are not alone, whatever it is, this theme that began around the early 50’s has been a hit and continues to be a popular theme in games emerging today. 

As of 2024, there are a plethora of sci fi games to choose from, whether it be a sci fi themed slot game at a quality online casino site like Megaways Games, or a battle game on XBox or PlayStation. The thing about having so much choice though is that it can be hard to know what is worthy of investing your time in. 

Below, we’ll take a look at the most popular sci fi games of 2024. 

Exe Killer

One of the most popular themes in sci-fi is the doomsday scenario where Earth has been destroyed and humans are trying to survive in what is left. Exe Killer allows you to live out this scenario on a scorched earth that is now run by a few of the world’s major corporations. These corporations are not playing fair though and anyone not playing by their rules will be taken out.

You have the opportunity to become a character called Denzel, an infamous bounty hunter for the corporations that quickly learns that all is not as it seems. What’s great about this game is that the storyline is adaptive to your play, so you can decide what happens from here. 

Horizon: Forbidden West

Inspiring Avatar vibes, Horizon: Forbidden West is the sequel to the hit game Horizon Zero Dawn that came out in 2017. With panoramic views of this captivating world, vibrant colours and impressive graphics, you’ll be nothing short of awe inspired by playing this game.

Similarly to Avatar, only we’re still on planet Earth which has been destroyed, you are now trying to live alongside other deadly and highly intelligent creatures, from intricately designed robotic creatures, to waring factions and other humans that are not particularly friendly.

Your job is to figure out how to fight extinction and survive in this post apocalyptic world while adventuring through deep mountains, elaborate rain forests, and sunken cities of the ancient past. 

The game is available on PS4 and PS5. 

Halo Infinite 

Halo is a hit series, in which Infinite has been a long awaited release in the Halo fan world. Offering both single and mult-iplayer options, you will be provided with weapons and a vehicle as you travel through the Halo universe and come up against one of the most feared characters in the series, the Master Chief. 

Whether you survive or not is down to you. As fo the rest, you’ll be inspired by impressive graphics, immersive content, and a gripping storyline that makes the more than half a decade wait for this title oh so worth it. 

Mass Effect Legendary Edition

Mass Effect Legendary Edition is a long awaited remake of one of the ost popular sci fi games ever made. This special edition includes all three Mass Effect games that will delight fans of  the franchise, in which this pack includes updates gameplay and textures, but the same beloved storyline that has gripped fans from the beginning. 

In this game, you will become Commander Shepard as you explore the universe of the future. What’s great about this game is that it also have a progressive narrative in which you decide how the story goes. The game will remember the choices you make as the story unfolds and adapt the narrative accordingly. This means no two games are the same and your game experience will be unique compared to any other players. 

The game is available on PS4 and XBox One from all major stores. 

Overall, sci fi games, movies and tv shows have been around for a long time now and still continue to be as popular today as they were in the early 50’s. While the storylines may be a bit more progressive than the likes of the first Planet of the Apes franchises, the concepts are still the same, humans surviving in a post apocalyptic world. 

One thing is for sure, that sci fi games will continue to be created and we can expect some exciting new sci fi titles in the very near future. As for now, why not try out the above.
