List RulesOnly cross-platform games that can be played on a range of video game consoles

Sometimes the best video games aren’t console exclusive. They’re inclusive cross platform video games, which means those gamers who might not want to spring for having two (or more) consoles can safely know they’re not missing out on the fun. While people usually think of PC games and console games as two separate enterprises, these cross-platform games play nice and allow anyone to get in on the action.

The best cross platform games are pure pop culture gold. They provide engaging storylines, amazing graphics, and spark plenty debates. Games such as Grand Theft Auto V, The Evil Within, Batman: Arkham Asylum, and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor all meet these qualifications. These are crossover games in the best sense of the word. Some of them have even become classics.

    The fourth outing for the game series, Saints Row IV takes all the shenanigans you’d expect from creators and ramps it up a little bit. Alien invasions have never been this hilarious. Available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
