What is an Action Game ?

Action games put an emphasis on challenge and reward, often putting players in control of a protagonist and forcing them to complete levels by avoiding obstacles, avoiding traps, collecting items and defeating enemies in order to advance the story.

Levels in action games are usually linear, putting the character on a single path of destruction to advance the game, such as the amazing classic Streets of Rage games. Some action games can make their levels non-linear however and with these games players will need to explore and solve puzzles to find the exit or entrance to the next level, like in the original Tomb Raider games.

Enemies can come in groups or waves to challenge the player as the level progresses, getting more difficult as the player continues forward, whether linear or non-linear in nature action games often feature bosses at the end of levels or at significant junctures of the story, such as in the Dark Souls series.

A big part of the action game genre is the use of health and lives to further challenge the player. Most action games now offer unlimited lives and instead will force players to watch their health, giving them the opportunity to pick up or purchase health packs or items as they move through the level. Death can mean starting from where you died, starting at a checkpoint or restarting the level completely, so watching your health is very important.

As newer games come out they are finding alternative ways to make the players feel at risk. The Dark Souls games have you lose all your souls, making it difficult to level up your character and games such as Diablo have weapons and armor durability which drops when you take damage and die, forcing you to spend hard-earned gold on repairing items rather than purchasing stronger ones.

Whether you are looking for a survival, shooter, fighting, horror or platform action game, if its a challenge you are after then you can’t go wrong. A study by the University of Rochester even showed that action games can improve eyesight, showing that action games can improve more than just your gaming skills.

This is where Tags come in.

Why Are We Doing a Top 10 Free to Play Action Games List?

In the world of Action Games, fantastic games can be found at incredible prices but you can also be at a greater risk of being left disappointed.

Not all games reach their potential and get a release, unfortunately many games are left abandoned by their developers or are even released in a poor state and are yet still available to purchase on Steam.

Steam is in the business of selling games and sometimes that can mean a drop in quality in order to get more titles onto the Steam Store and available for purchase.

At Allkeyshop, we believe in quality over quantity and because of that we use every bit of data that Steam offers and we use that to provide the most detailed analysis of a game’s ranking.

How Do We Get Our Rankings?

Our rankings will take all available pieces of data into account, in particular we focus on the real ratings, real opinions and recommendations of those that play the game.

As a part of our ranking, we ensure that only those that own the game, have it currently available in their library and are logged into their account can vote for their favourite games. This, along with our other data, ensures we have the most accurate ranking system possible.

We only show the top 15 games so that you are not overwhelmed with hundreds of games and swamped in too much data. We plan on refreshing our top 15 each week, but we may change this plan if we find it has a real demand from you, our users.

Allkeyshop is a price comparator site with the intention of giving players the best price possible for the best games available. We remain fully impartial on prices and sellers, displaying both online sites and platforms such Steam, Origin and Epic, and we remain completely impartial on the rating of those games that we highlight in our rankings.

Our rankings are based on our users with no influence from us and we will remain impartial on the ratings and the rankings of all games.
