19. Destiny 2 (PS4)
Destiny 2, like its predecessor, has walked a rocky path, but Bungie has brought the online shooter to a good place after some hefty gameplay changes and expansions. Hopping into the game to tackle some raids and other challenges with your buddies remains an entertaining pastime, with the promise of bigger and better loot always keeping you going.
18. FIFA 20 (PS4)
You can always count on FIFA to provide a substantial online offering. Coupled with the game's suite of local multiplayer options – including an expanding array of excellent party games – you simply can't go wrong when it comes to a game of virtual footie with your mates. Whether you’re building an unstoppable squad in Ultimate Team or leveraging the human cheat mode Cristiano Ronaldo in a not-so-friendly, EA Sports’ soccer sim ranks for its sheer wealth of options alone.
Respawn's fast-paced FPS is often celebrated for its single player campaign, but just as entertaining is the brilliant online multiplayer. Players start off as agile soldiers, but after a while, they're able to call down a Titan, a giant mech suit with high firepower and some fun abilities. The combination of the nimble, wall-running Pilots and the hulking, powerful Titans makes for some cracking online battles.
The Elder Scrolls Online does an absolutely terrific job of combining the open world adventure of Bethesda's classic series with the massively multiplayer shenanigans of an MMORPG. This is exactly what you'd expect a marriage of the two different game types to play like, and is the first in the Elder Scrolls series to let you explore most of Tamriel since Arena. This is well worth a look, especially while you wait for Elder Scrolls VI.
