Far Cry 5

When I decided to switch from Windows to Linux sometime in late summer of 2019, my biggest gripe was that I would not be able to play Far Cry 5, a video game that I was very much into at the time. However, it didn't prevent me from switching. Well, almost four years later, I can report that the game works fabulously in Linux. Image without description
A true first-person shooter.

The game offers players an open-world experience that is both engaging and dynamic. Exploring the cool-looking forests of Montana, and engaging in intense gunfights with the Christian cultists of the Project at Eden's Gate are important parts of the gameplay. You have access to a wide range of vehicles, weapons, and gadgets, so it definitely adds depth to the experience, ensuring that no two playthroughs are ever the same.

Day and night change seamlessly.

Visually, Far Cry 5 is impressive. I have tried the demo of Far Cry 6, and 5 has better graphics in my opinion. The game's environments are detailed, from the sprawling vistas of the Montana wilderness to the eerie interiors of the cult's bunkers. The attention to detail is evident in every aspect of the game, from the realistic character animations to the lifelike wildlife that populates the world.

You can drive and fly any vehicle visible. Here we fly a helicopter and shoot-em up.

I loved Far Cry 3 for the crazy characters ("Did I ever tell you what the definition of insanity is?" is the best scene in the history of video games), and Far Cry 4 had a fascinating world-building, but Far Cry 5 is a very memorable game, too, not because of the characters, but because of the overall impression. Recommended.
