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.
