Best Games Like Genshin Impact (for PC & Consoles)

Genshin Impact is a piece of art there is no doubt about that. But whatever you do for a big amount of time tends to get boring and you’ll need a break from it. 

That is why in this guide we will be exploring some games that have a resemblance to Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact is an open-world action role-playing game in which the player controls one of four replaceable party members.

During combat, switching between characters is rapid and allows the player to employ a variety of skill and attack combinations.

It is a fast-paced game with an extremely well-designed combat system that is used in a fantastical and beautifully crafted world.

To come close to what Genshin Impact offers might be hard, and a lot of players from it might not like it as much.

But this is the list that I’ve compiled for games that come close to it.

Top 10 Games Like Genshin Impact

Sometimes you’ll be bored, or maybe some gamers might not have the requirements in order to play Genshin Impact.

That is why in this list, I am going to be listing the top 10 best games for either PC or consoles that might give you the enjoyment that Genshin Impact does. 

1 – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Definitely one of the best games out there that are as good and maybe even better than Genshin Impact.

Breath of the Wild played a big factor in the design and creation of the Genshin Impact world and art too.

It offers a beautiful and very inspirational story that you will play through the character Link – the boy who is on a quest to find the princess Zelda.

It goes way back from even 2-3 decades ago and it reaches its culmination with Breath of the Wild. You will have a fast combat system that is fairly close to Genshin Impacts.

The art and sceneries are very much alike too. You will find yourself forgetting about Genshin Impact while playing Breath of the Wild, at least that is what happened to me.

2 – Tower of Fantasy

I was in doubt whether should I include ToF or not because it is basically Genshin Impact just slightly different and modified.

But still, you might have explored everything that Genshin Impact has to offer, and going over into a different world with brand new areas and enemies will be a real joy.

Here you will go into an apocalyptic world where you will have your fair share of amazing interesting characters and stories. The characters that you will play as too are different.

The art of this game is very much like the one of Genshin Impact and at times the developers have gone way and beyond to implement even better sceneries too.

You will have mounts to use in Tower of Fantasy. That is the big thing when it comes to exploration. 

Lots of people are saying that it is a copy of Genshin Impact, I wouldn’t necessarily agree. Give it a try and you might just find your next best thing after Genshin Impact.

3 – Tales of Vesperia

Given that both games are high fantasy adventures in the anime style set in expansive open environments, it is impossible to ignore the similarities between Genshin Impact and Tales of Vesperia. 

Tales of Vesperia comes after Tower of Fantasy but it shares a fair lot of the same characteristics with it too. 

It features fast-paced, real-time fighting with the option to switch between party members instantly, like like Genshin Impact. 

Furthermore, both games include big casts of very interesting and unique characters built on well-known anime and fantasy motifs.

4 – Honkai Impact

Both of them have the Impact as the second word in their name. Should I say more?! All jokes aside Honkai Impact is a very well-rounded game that can be a substitute for Genshin.

Honkai Impact or sometimes known as the sidekick of our favorite game Genshin Impact comes fourth on this list. 

This is a free-to-play action roleplaying game Honkai Impact 3rd, developed by the same company as Genshin Impact.

You will be commanding a team of Valkyries, similar to the team structure in Genshin Impact, to defeat the Honkai, an energy that is corrupting and destroying the earth.

The sceneries that you’ll be seeing are very similar to the ones in Genshin Impact, but it doesn’t mean that it is the same. It feels like a brand new map added to Genshin’s world, so it’s good.

The combat is very much alike and the characters have an in-game progression system that you will experience as you go throughout the story.

It is a very solid game to check out, the only reason that is on number 4 is that the previous ones are simply better when it comes to a substitute.

5 – Xenoblade Chronicles 3

Xenoblade Chronicles will surprise you when it comes to the resemblance that it has with Genshin Impact, although it does have its fair share of differences too.

A lot of players have been trying out Xenoblade Chronicles if they get bored from Genshin Impact just because of these differences too. It is very similar but very different at the same time.

You will be controlling way more characters than the 4 ones in Gensihn, and more than that is the teamwork system that you’ll be executing various types of attacks.

I would have to say that in my experience the world of Xenoblade is awful when compares to the ones of Genshin. It is boring and the texture of it will make you sleepy.

But the story, the characters, and the combat will make your eyes shine as the first time you played Genshin Impact for sure! 

If you’re on the fence and thinking about giving this game a try, think no further. Just try it out.

6 – Final Fantasy XIV

Final Fantasy XIV has over 20 million active players because of the simulation of the world that it offers. You will literally be able to lose yourself inside this game!

You can do this in Genshin Impact too by all means, but in FFXIV you will get a very deeper and alive system that will make you immersed and fall in love with your characters.

The world that it has is simply breathtaking, something of the kind the Genshin Impact offers. 

The characters that you can play as are amazing and you’ll be able to do a lot of things more than Genshin Impact when you’re controlling them.

That is where these games come different too. FFXIV is something that you’ll be investing in yourself way more and the smallest thing in there might take a lot of time to do.

But if you’re looking for something different and similar at the same time, with much more depth than Genshin Impact. Final Fantasy XIV will be your go-to.

7 – Immortal Fenyx Rising

The whole reason for this is number 7 is the setting of this game. It is Greek mythology, which is distinct from Genshin Impact, but don’t let that stray you off. 

Genshin Impact and this game both drew inspiration from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, so that’s something they have in common, at least. 

You’ll assume the character of Fenyx, an Olympus-based mortal man. 

Leveling up is crucial here, and while you travel, you’ll acquire resources that you can spend to purchase stats like as HP, stamina, fighting abilities, and other items. 

Exploring the planet feels truly fantastic, and seeing the sceneries that it offers is fantastic. There are other options besides merely moving about on foot to do this, unlike Genshin Impact.

8 – Dragalia Lost

This is the go-to if you’re a fan of Genshin Impact and you’re an Android user. I know a lot of people who simply cannot play Genshin Impact and they’re happy with Dragalia Lost instead.

This game offers one of the most captivating narratives on mobile, which is to be anticipated by a well-known gaming company.

In the parallel reality of Dragalia Lost, dragons have a significant social role. To call strong warriors to battle by your side, you’ll also need to employ the Dragalia cash.

Dragalia Lost’s combat places a lot of emphasis on squad composition, just like in Genshin Impact. 

You must carefully take into account your team’s elemental characteristics as well as the dragon preferences that will best support your party.

9 – Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom

Fans of Genshin Impact will like Ni No Kuni II’s buoyancy and lightness thanks to its soft curves, crisp lines, and vivid colors, which are influenced by the Zelda world.

This is not a mindless button masher, even if it is undoubtedly geared for a younger audience. 

You would not expect a game for youngsters to have as much complexity as it does, and the Pokémon-style monster capturing and kingdom administration will make you wonder where the day has gone.

It is something that might come very interesting to you at first but will gradually decrease the fun because of the simplicity of the story.

That still doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t give it a try. It is something that can be played like Genshin Impact and it offers the same interesting and beautiful art style.

10 – Windbound

This is my personal favorite whenever I get bored from Genshin Impact. It is definitely not one of the closest games that even feels like Genshin Impact, but the art style is where I fell in love.

It is extremely beautiful and it gives you that relaxing feeling when you’re traversing through the world of Genshin Impact.

The combat is also fun and very much alive like the one in Genshin, just you won’t be controlling a set of 4 characters, instead, you’ll be using only one.

The biggest doubt when people are thinking about starting this game is the survival factor. Well, if you’re thinking about it you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

It is something that is just far away from Genshib Impact to make you feel like you’re playing a different game, but close enough to give you almost the same feeling too.

Conclusion

Those are my 10 sets of games that have had some resemblance to me playing them before. 

Still, for the hardcore Genshin Impact player out there, I’m not saying that they are better than Genshin simply saying that it strikes resemblance and is something that you’ll enjoy.

So get out of your safety bubble and if bored and waiting for a new patch in Genshin Impact, give these 10 games a try. My personal favorite is Windbound.

What do you think is the closest game out of all of these that comes closest to Genshin Impact and why? Have fun!
