When the Far Cry series was first released back in March 2004, it was met with applause and boos in equal measure. Today, this sequel is one of the most successful gaming franchises, selling over 50 million copies to date, with the Far Cry 5 being the fastest-selling title in the sequel.

Here, you’ll explore exotic locations while killing lots of people in the process. So, I want us to look back at all the twelve Far Cry titles and see which one rises above the rest.
