Featured Favorite: Cyberpunk 2077 for Stadia

CD Projekt RED’s open-world epic may not be the genre-defining revolution many had hoped for, but the Stadia version plays great. While the PS4 and Xbox One editions currently suffer from terrible performance issues and tons of bugs, the Stadia version is similar to playing on a gaming PC and is arguably the best way to play the game. I enjoyed it very much in my review and am excited to see it getting better.

Intellect Devourer in Baldur's Gate III

Gather Your Party: Baldur’s Gate 3 (Early Access) for Stadia

Personnel selection

Even though it’s still in Early Access, Larian’s Baldur’s Gate 3 is already set to be another RPG masterpiece from one of the genre’s greats. The developers behind the critically acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin series are pulling the strings of the iconic Dungeons & Dragons universe in this awesome feast of turn-based tactics and beautiful storytelling. It also plays well on Stadia via PC and has surprisingly good controller support. Unfortunately, it’s not on consoles yet, so this is the only way to play the game right now without a gaming PC.

Resident Evil Village Vampires

Action horror at its best: Resident Evil Village for Stadia

Resident Evil Village continues the story of Ethan Winters and his family dealing with the fallout from Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Unlike Biohazard, however, Resident Evil Village focuses much more on the action-horror aspect of the classic franchise. It gives players incredible gameplay moments as they explore a castle filled with terrifying (and tall) vampires, a village overrun by Lycans and much more.

Ac Valhalla Lady Viking

Dawn of the Dark Age: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla for Stadia

There have been many great Assassin’s Creed games, many of them on Stadia, but the recent Valhalla is excellent in its own right. It’s an epic Viking story that puts you in the shoes of Eivor, a Viking warrior determined to take revenge and conquer the land of England. It continues the franchise’s derivation into the open-world RPG genre and streamlines many elements to make it one of the best in the entire series. If you sign up for Ubisoft on Stadia, you can play a ton of Assassin’s Creed games for one tier subscription fee.

Hitman 3 Silhouette Agent

Silent Killer: Hitman 3 for Stadia

The Hitman games are definitely a must-play as the first games on Stadia use the innovative new State Share feature. Together they offer incredible spy moments that will make you feel like a master assassin, and they are some of the best looking games on the platform. Hitman 3 is the latest and greatest, with Hitman 1-2 available at no extra cost with a Stadia Pro membership.

Game Creation for Everyone: Crayta for Stadia

Here’s your family-friendly entry on the list. Think of Crayta as a combination of Roblox’s world-building and game-making toolset. Still, it’s distilled into an accessible and attractive format with Fortnite-style visuals. You can crack open the editor on the PC to really get into the nuts and bolts or jump in for some quick and easy fun with friends. Crayta is whatever you want, and now it’s free for everyone on Stadia, not just Pro subscribers.

Four survivors must covertly repair generators to escape as they find themselves trapped in a scary arena with a deranged killer, also controlled by another player. This unique, asymmetrical multiplayer format makes for one of the most exciting and terrifying games. Crossplay means you’ll always find matches with players on Stadia, PC, Switch, PS4, PS5 and Xbox systems.

Destiny 2 Shadowkeep

Guardians and Glory: Destiny 2: New Light for Stadia

The ability to play Bungie’s popular first-person shooter on your phone is one of the most exciting things about Stadia. The base game and the two expansions are currently free with your Stadia account, so you can try out the systems and explore the game’s strange worlds alone or with friends. Once you’ve honed your skills, you can compete with PvP or buy some expansions to keep the adventure going.

Elder Scrolls Online Eso Stadia Elsweyr Image

Tamriel Traveler: The Elder Scrolls Online for Stadia

As the one and only MMO on Stadia, Elder Scrolls Online doesn’t have much competition. Fortunately, it’s also one of the best MMOs on the market. With the Stadia version you get ultimate flexibility and play on your TV, PC or phone. Turning in daily newspapers and completing quick missions on mobile is super easy and makes it a great game to play in short sprints and long nighttime sessions. No mandatory subscription costs is of course also nice.

Grid Stadia Endurance Mode

Pedal to the metal: GRID for Stadia

Every best games list needs a solid racing title, and GRID fits the bill perfectly. It has an excellent mix between arcade style racing and simulation mechanics, offering something that is not too easy but not too complex. Visually it’s stunning, and it even has an exclusive Stadia mode that can cram up to 40 players into a single race. It gets very intense very quickly.

Little Nightmares 2 on Stadia

Tiny Terrors: Little Nightmares 2 for Stadia

This latest endeavor from Tarsier Studios is a significant improvement over its predecessor and perfectly delivers on its promises of a world full of “charming horror”. Little Nightmares 2 is disturbing, tense and downright terrifying at times without ever losing the innocent exterior that draws you in. Definitely one of the first must-play games of 2021; it has the advantage of being included in Stadia Pro for free for all subscribers. Of course you don’t need to have played the previous game to play this one, but it will increase the impact of the story.

Wild Wild West: Red Dead Redemption 2 for Stadia

Play as an outlaw trying to survive in the waning days of the Wild West in this sprawling open world game. Make your choices carefully as you try to keep your gang together while dodging the law enforcement officers. Red Dead Redemption 2 is also like two games in one, thanks to the huge success and popularity of Red Dead Online.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Dodging Death: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice for Stadia

Stadia may not have a single Dark Souls game, but you can enjoy From Software’s latest outing with Sekiro, who refined the formula to the edge. This game really pushes Stadia to the limit as a platform due to its high split-second timing requirements for parry and attack. It’s a great game, but not if your internet connection is anything but solid.

Terraria Stadiums Screenshot Cave

Pixel-Perfect Creation: Terrariums for Stadia

At first glance, it’s pretty easy to write Terraria off as just another Minecraft clone, but this time with 2D pixel art visuals. While true at first glance, Terraria is much more than meets the eye. The Stadia version is a perfect port of the excellent sandbox survival game with no compromises than its dedicated console counterparts. But it may still not be right for you if you don’t like extreme open crafting games.
