Top Adventure Games List: If you are like me and you like exploring, searching for ancient artifacts, mystery, travel and archeology games, then you came to the right article…
Please before you play any game look at this article, about how long you sould play video games and about the Positive and Negative Effects of Playing Video Games.
Note: Some of the games are for PC, Play-station or X-Box. First things come first. I will start with the Indiana Jones games, but not because of the perfect Graphics and the scenario of the games, but for the respect that I have to George Lukas and to his hero Indy. Without Indiana Jones, games like Tomb Raider and Uncharted there would never existed. Lara Croft, the female archaeologist of the Tomb Raider series, was originally designed as a man, but was changed to a woman, partly because the developers felt that the original design was too similar to Indiana Jones. The video game series Uncharted is also very heavily influenced and inspired by the Indiana Jones. The main character, Nathan Drake, also shares many similarities with Jones himself. So the correct title for this article must be games like Indiana Jones instead of games like Tomb Raider and Uncharted
Top Adventure Games List: Games Like Tomb Raider and Uncharted
INDIANA JONES SERIES…

Lara Croft is the female Indiana Jones! Its one of the best games for exploring and searching for ancient artifacts. Actually I was plan to add this game first on my top adventure games list, but Indiana must come first!
