If you like point and click games, listen to Behemoth or find medieval Times interesting, you should definitely play Apocalipsis: Harry at the End of the World.
Far Cry 5 is another good game after Assasin's Creed: Origins. Montana's diverse climate, captivating plot and refreshed mechanics make it the best sequel after Far Cry 3.
