The best action games in 2024

Lights, cameras, action games! If there’s one genre that crops up time and time again in videogames, it’s action, especially as it slips right into games that don’t necessarily classify as ‘action’ or those that fall under a different primary genre. For instance, many RPGs can also fall under the ARPG bracket, but we’re ready to think even further outside the box, so strap in for our picks for the best action games on Nintendo Switch and mobile.

If you’re after a specific line of games, we have Mario games, Zelda games, Pokémon games, The Witcher games, and Candy Crush games guides that are worth a read. Or, if you want a taste of the genres that so often go hand-in-hand with action games, check out our adventure games and Switch RPGs articles.
