Best Hunting Games for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

The fundamentals of a good hunting game are focused on a realistic hunting experience and here are some best hunting games for Consoles or PC.

Traditionally if you wanted to obtain skills for hunting, then your best bet would be to actually be present in the wilds yourself. You would have to learn the tips and tricks that all hunters must follow to hunt effectively and successfully or the help of an experienced hunter you know, to aid you on your first hunting adventure.

However, nowadays you may not need to go through all that trouble, because video games have become quite main-stream over the years and there are plenty of hunting games available on different platforms that can actually give you a realistic hunting experience.

Of course, it may not ever be similar to obtaining first-hand Hunting Experience in the wilds for real but it can still give you an idea of what to really expect out there in a safe controlled environment at the comfort of your own home.

The real-life excitement of it is a lot dimmed down through these simulators but that doesn't mean that it would hurt you to have some fun time with it. So, take a look at some of the best hunting games for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

01. The Hunter: Call of the Wild (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
If you are looking for one of the most realistic hunting experience in a game that can almost be passed off as a simulation, then the hunter: Call of the Wild is exactly what you might be looking for. Unlike its predecessors of The Hunter series, it is a one-time purchase game, which can be extended with additional DLC.

The game allows you to hunt in two reserves based on the North American Pacific Northwest. The base game offers 15 animals that can be hunted, which can be expanded to 25 if you purchase all the offered DLCs.

You can use different caliber rifles, shotguns, pistol, and even bows in the game to hunt animals. In order to get the highest score, the player would have to choose the right weapon depending on the type of animal they intend on hunting.

The player is also provided with a camera to take pictures of the different animals, nature, landmarks, and points of interest in the game. There is also a multiplayer component in the game that lets you form a team of up to 8 players.

In order to track animals, you would have to pay close attention to their different voice calls, footprints, droppings and their "need zones" where they usually take shelter. The natural vegetation can be used as cover by players, and they must keep their noise to a minimum to hunt successfully.

2. Cabela's Big Game Hunter: Pro Hunts (PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360)
This game is a bit old, but it is still a pretty good hunting simulation. It was originally created for 7th generation consoles, but it still holds up quite well today. The game offers a single player campaign set in North America.

The player gets to play with four professional big game hunters from the real world who provide advice throughout the campaign. In order to progress, you have to use various weapons such as rifles, bows, and shotguns to hunt animals and complete objectives.

There are four different hunting areas in the game divided into South East, North East, South West, and North West. You have to hunt down special animals known as "game bosses" to unlock the following hunting area.

3. Far Cry 5 (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Far Cry 5 isn't one of your conventional hunting games, because the game offers more than just hunting. It is an open world action adventure game set in a fictional region in Montana and deals with your player's attempts at surviving an oppressive cult that has taken over these beautiful lands.

It has some impressive next-generation graphics, and the wilderness in the game really stands out compared to other games. Although it is not focused particularly on hunting, you are given the option to hunt as a side activity that complements the main campaign.

There are a diverse set of animals that make up the ecosystem of the game, and they give you a real sense of danger when you are venturing off alone in the wilds. You have many different weapons to use at your disposal ranging from handguns, shotguns assault rifles, and various throwables.

All of these weapons can be used to hunt animals. The pelts of these animals can also be skinned to be sold at stores to earn in-game currency. Far Cry 5 does not aim to provide a hunting simulation, but it does offer some fun gameplay and a realistic sense of risk as the different animals can attack you at any moment.

4. Red Dead Redemption 2 (PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Yup, you heard it right! Just like the previous game in this list, this is not a game tailored specifically for hunting either. The game pays homage to classic western movies such as The Wild Bunch and Sergio Leone's Dollars trilogy.

It is set in an open world and features a fictionalized version of the Western United States. Although this game is mainly known for its wonderful cinematic single-player campaign following the lives of a bunch of outlaws escaping civilization, it does feature a very realistic hunting side activity.

Although the hunting in this game may not be considered a simulation, it is indeed something very close to a simulation because of the various details and technology that the developers have implemented to bring out the true hunting essence.

When you're off on a hunting adventure in the game, you will have to use the various weapons of that era, such as single-action revolvers, shotguns, rifles, and even bows. Using the wrong kind of weapon on the wrong animal can damage your pelt, so you have to pick your weapon carefully.

You can also hunt down some legendary animals, which provide pelts of the highest quality. Red Dead Redemption 2 also provides a real sense of danger to players, and animals have a keen sense of smell. So you have to be very careful before approaching one.

There are many video games out there that provide an outstanding hunting experience without even being present in the wilds. Hunting, in reality, can sometimes be considered an expensive sport because of the different gears that you require to hunt successfully.

Although video games are not necessarily cheap, they are definitely easier on the wallet in comparison to hunting rifles and other crucial hunting components. Also, you can stay clear from danger as a beginner if you choose to have the hunting experience through a video game.

Even if hunting is something you are not really into, these video games are still a fun way to pass your time and I am sure you won't be disappointed!
