Sierra 7

A fun-looking (but serious) shooter had to make it onto this list and Sierra 7 is the one I picked! You can endlessly shoot your way through a bunch of enemies, by having a tactical approach. You basically need to figure out the war operation and come out victorious.

There are many hours to delve into in the campaign mode, and unique missions and even mini-games are designed to keep you engaged for a very long time. A clear winner!
