Humans have been hunting for as long as we’ve been alive. To get food or for fun, we’ve gone into the wild places of the world. We want to come back with a fresh kill and a story to tell. Many of our best-known gods and legends are skilled hunters, like Artemis, Mixcoatl, and Nimrod, to name a few. With the mythos and action of the hunt, it’s a great game idea.
We’ve put together a list of the best hunting games that have ever been on a screen. They range from simple point and shoot games to ultra-realistic simulators to modern myths about big animals. You don’t have to get up at four in the morning just to play these games.
1. Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter (2010)
Some games that want to show off their realism point out how different animals react to what the hunter does. In this game, the player will have to stalk or ambush, pursue, or even defend themselves based on the specifics of the animals’ fight-or-flight instincts. Many hunting games have this kind of thing. It’s not something that most hunting games have.
When you play Dinosaur Hunter, you can put your hunting skills to the test against the most powerful dinosaurs that ever lived. It’s an updated version of Carnivores, which came out in 1998. From velociraptors and stegosaurs to the ferocious Tyrannosaurus Rex, the game asks you to change your tactics for each target. This is how the game works: A lot of new versions and reboots have been made in the last ten years, but none have been as good as the one from 2010.
2. Big Buck Hunter Reloaded (2020)
Big Buck Hunter is often found in arcades. It is designed to be quick, simple, and easy to play again and again, so it can be played again and again. Each hunt shows a beautiful landscape with a variety of animals that can be killed with the game’s gun accessory. All of the animals run away as soon as they see you. In spite of the fact that it isn’t meant to be realistic, Big Buck Hunter captures the tense moment right before and after taking the shot.
The game also has a lot of fun, especially in its minigames. The most recent version, Big Buck Hunter Reloaded, has the best graphics yet, as well as a zombie mode and a port of the Terminator: Salvation arcade game. You can also play as a zombie. Sure, it’s cheesy, but it’s still fun.
3. Hunting Unlimited 2010 (2009)
It’s true that there have been other Hunting Unlimited games since. For us, though, we think the 2010 edition is the best. Not only does it have a lot of weapons and tools at the player’s disposal, but it also has a lot of missions with set goals and a lot of free roaming, too.
Best of all, unlike most other hunting games, Hunting Unlimited 2010 has the mission editor from the series, which lets players make and share their own hunts. As a result, it’s a good deal on Steam because it’s a long-running game. It’s also one of the best hunting games on PC.
4. Hunt: Showdown (2019)
Hunt: Showdown is a grimdark PvPvE game set in the Louisiana Bayou. It pits teams of hunters against supernatural forces in the Louisiana Bayou. To win, your team will have to find and kill the target monster before any of the other teams do, so they can get the prize. As long as you don’t make a mistake in the swamps, your hunt could be over quickly.
Hunting has become a lot more social in the real world, so a team-based hunting game makes a whole lot of sense. Realism and immersion aren’t what people are interested in here, but the idea of teams racing to kill a boss first is pretty cool, and the tracking element only adds to the excitement. For one thing, nobody wants to be like Van Helsing.
5. Duck Hunt (1984)
This single-screen shooter is one of the best games ever. There aren’t many Duck Hunt games that use NES Zappers, but there are a lot of them. Duck Hunt is one of them. As long as you have original hardware and play it, you can still hear the sh-ching of the trigger. You’re likely to have a burning hatred for the game’s “jerk of a hunter dog.”
Duck Hunt is one of the most simple games on this list. It is a classic of retro gaming. NES: It came with the NES, and it shared a cartridge with no less a game than Super Mario Bros. It also lives on in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate, where animals from the game work together to fight.
6. Bigfoot (2017) and Folklore Hunter (2020)
Two sides of the same coin are in this spot. People can join you on a hunt for a supernatural creature in both Bigfoot and Folklore Hunter. The Wendigo and the Sasquatch, for example, are both on the list of things you can hunt. Each monster is strong, clever, and doesn’t like humans in its area. You won’t be able to fight the monster in a straight fight, so you’ll have to track it down, learn its habits, and eventually lure it into a place where you can kill it for good.
A scary part of both games is that you never know for sure which one is which. When humans meet the target, they try to do enough damage to drive it away and maybe even wound it for later fights, or they run for their lives. They are the first of a new kind of game, and we can’t wait to see where they go next.
7. Hunting Simulator 2 (2020)
This game is good for people who want to play hunting games that are as close to real as possible. It will show you picking the right ammunition as you track down dozens of animals in three beautiful places. You’ll need to use real-world hunting skills and gear, like guns and clothes, to be successful.
The best thing about Hunting Simulator 2 is that it gives your character a dog to go with him on the hunt. It’s part of the game’s strategy to pick the right breed of dog for the job. You’ll be using your dog to find, run down, and retrieve prey just as much as you’ll be using your guns. You can also pet them. The dogs, not the guns
8. Deer Hunter 2018
Deer Hunter 2018 is an online game that can be played on mobile devices. There are a lot of different kinds of animals to hunt and different kinds of weapons and equipment to improve. This game is similar to the long-running Deer Hunter series. The game is also free, but it has in-app purchases. This means that people who are new to hunting won’t have to spend anything but their time trying it out.
9. TheHunter: Call Of The Wild 2021 Edition
promises to give players a hunting experience that is more immersive than any other hunting experience ever made in a video game A new 2021 Edition has just been released, which makes the graphics and load times even better. In games like Red Dead Redemption 2, you can explore the American wilderness while hunting. This game has a lot of beautiful scenery that looks like that. There are also multiplayer options, which means that you can hunt with your friends.
The 2021 Edition adds new places around the world and even more species to the game’s ever-growing list. Over the 2017 Edition, it also adds more weapon packs and equipment packs. This makes it a better buy than the 2017 Edition. There are two lodges in Call of the Wild, where hunters can show off their trophies and look at them.
