List Rules Vote up your favorite single player games you're playing right now.

What are the hottest single-player games that people are playing right now? While some games are better with friends, others are meant to be played alone. Let's rank the best new single-player games that are popular right now, ranked by your votes.

From PS4 exclusives like Horizon Zero Dawn, where you play as Alloy in a post-apocalyptic future with robotic animals, to the newest God of War installment, where you literally play as a demigod, some of the greatest games are single-player only. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a very popular single player game right now, but the From Software game is certainly making a lot of gamers rage quit as well. There's also Resident Evil 2, a remake of the PlayStation classic that you'll probably be too afraid to play alone in the dark.

Vote up the best single-player games people are playing right now, and add your own favorites if they aren't already listed.
