Red Dead Redemption 2
I haven’t played Red Dead Redemption 2, but the reviews are exceedingly positive. It is a game for someone who likes story, action, and beautiful graphics. Red Dead Redemption 2 will keep you busy for a very long time; the game’s story is very long.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
This year’s Call of Duty will cater to Fortnite fans with its new battle royale mode. It’s a shooter but very different from Red Dead Redemption 2. Call of Duty takes on a more run-and-gun style shooter game without the story. Its main focus is multiplayer against other people, but there is also a zombies mode.
