The best GeForce Now games

GeForce Now is one of the most unique game streaming services on the market. Rather than giving players a catalog of titles for their monthly fee, subscribers instead access their own library of games from third-party storefronts such as Steam and the Epic Games Store. Games can be played remotely on Android devices, MacBooks, or even underpowered laptops. It’s a unique approach to the game streaming concept, but there’s one big catch — just because you own a game doesn’t mean it’s compatible with GeForce Now.

That’s right, not every title in your massive Steam library will run on GeForce Now. The service has made huge strides over the past few years, however, with more than 1,000 titles now playable on the service. If you’re having trouble figuring out what to play using your new subscription — or if you’re just wondering whether your favorite game is compatible with the service — here’s a look at some of the best games on GeForce Now.

It took a few years, but Genshin Impact is finally available through GeForce Now. The game is remarkably different than it was at launch, thanks to constant updates that helped rebalance its content, added new regions to explore, characters to unlock, and stories to unravel. Fast-paced, elemental combat makes it a joy to check out everything its world has to offer — and a gorgeous art style makes each new biome feel like something unique.

Lost Ark dominated the charts when it launched in February 2022, and it hasn’t slowed down since. You’ll pick from one of several classes, before diving into an MMO that plays more like an ARPG. Its not uncommon for enemies to fill your screen, only for a powerful attack to wipe them out seconds later. Once you’ve completed its winding main quest, there’s plenty of side quests to keep you busy along with a robust endgame experience that includes both PvP and PvE adventures.

Team Fortress 2 is old as dirt, but its dedicated community doesn’t seem to care. Fluid gunplay, quirky graphics, and a motley cast of playable characters gives the game a personality all its own — not to mention its strange obsession with hats. Battle royales and gritty FPS titles might dominate the market, but Team Fortress 2 has managed to stick around thanks timeless map design and a ridiculously high skill ceiling for each of its classes.

Two teams will face off across a variety of rounds, with no respawning allowed. This makes each match a high-stakes shootout, and its destructible environments only add to the tension. Throw in a roster of interesting characters, constant updates, and a thriving community, and Rainbow Six Siege could become your favorite FPS on GeForce Now.

Although it looks like a whimsical cartoon from the 1930s, Cuphead is actually a brutal, rage-inducing platformer. Each of its adorable 2D stages pits you up against a different boss, and it’ll take fast reflexes to make it out alive. Thankfully, the game remains enjoyable all the way through to the final credits due to tough-but-fair boss mechanics. Once you’ve finished the game, you can dive back in for a second run-through on an even higher difficulty setting.

It’s not the newest MMO on the block, but Guild Wars 2 is still one of the best. Aside from the usual MMO tropes (that is, PvP, PvE, tons of loot, and lots of questing), Guild Wars 2 sets itself apart from the competition with a striking, painted art style. It looks just as impressive now as it did a decade ago, and the team at ArenaNet has continued to churn out updates to keep its dedicated community coming back for more.

And even though it didn’t quite live up to the hype, there’s no denying the world of Night City is one worthy of your time. Aside from its sprawling metropolis, you’ll find a deep RPG with hundreds of weapons, upgrades, and unlockable content — not to mention a story that branches in multiple directions based on your actions.

Instead, bombastic setpieces, a deep arsenal of weapons, and new enemies around every corner will constantly push you forward and force you to think on your feet.

Path of Exile has been regularly updated over its long shelf life and will soon be receiving a massive new expansion. The new campaign is so extensive that the developers are calling it Path of Exile 2. It’s expected to release sometime this year, and when it does it’ll be compatible with GeForce Now.

If you’ve yet to experience the politically charged journey of Geralt, GeForce Now gives you an easy way to do so.

Who would have thought that combining a soccer game and a racing game could result in something so fun? Rocket League released nearly seven years ago and still manages to pull in thousands of players every day. For a game this bizarre, that’s quite the achievement. Players are tasked with driving their vehicles into a massive ball and guiding it toward the other team’s goal. It sounds weird — and it certainly is — but once you start playing, it’s difficult to put down.

If you’re not a League of Legends fan, no worries. Valve’s own MOBA is also available on GeForce Now. Dota 2 has become more complex than League of Legends, but also less dynamic. We’d even call it more restrictive. In typical MOBA fashion, players will march down lanes and try to destroy the enemies’ Ancient while simultaneously defending their own. It sounds like a simple task, but winning a round involves teamwork, dexterity, and hundreds of hours of practice. This is one GeForce Now title we could spend a few hours (or more) navigating.
