Tom Clancy might be responsible for more people joining the military than any other single author. His books, movies, and video games have inspired many a young man to take the pledge. As a kid, I read the books, watched the movies, and of course, played the games. Tom Clancy games were always a bit more realistic than most, and added a degree of tactics to your play. If you tried to run and gun, you’d be seeing Game Over a frustratingly high amount of times. With that in mind, I gathered my five favorite Tom Clancy games.

 

5) The Division

What happens when you mix Tom Clancy Games with World of Warcraft? Well, you get the Division. The Divison and The Division 2 are two online-only roleplaying games where characters assume the role of a sleeper agent in the Strategic Homeland Division. The plot involves a pandemic that leads to chaos in the streets and a real SHTF situation.

(Ubisoft)

This third-person shooter mixes the traditional elements of shoot and cover with leveling up, stat-based weapons and gear, as well as playable classes from an RPG. The world is open and quite large, and the guns, boy oh boy, there are tons of them. It’s mostly a cooperative PvE game, but a PvP section allows you to face off with other players for a more challenging gunfight.
