Google has some of the biggest AAA games out there on its platform, and the catalog keeps getting bigger and better. With more than a year on the market, dozens of games on Stadia are available to play instantly with no downloads, patches, or updates required. Whether you love shooters, RPGs, online multiplayer, platformers, indies, or something in between, there are undoubtedly games for you on Stadia right now. Here’s our list of the best Google Stadia games available to you now!
Cyberpunk 2077 for Stadia
CD Projekt RED’s open-world epic may not be the genre-defining revolution a lot had hoped for, but the Stadia version plays excellent. While the PS4 and Xbox One editions currently suffer from horrible performance issues and tons of bugs, the Stadia version is comparable to playing on a gaming PC and is arguably the best way to play the game. I enjoyed it quite a lot in my review and am excited to see it get better.

Baldur’s Gate 3 (Early Access) for Stadia Staff Pick
Even though it’s still in Early Access, Larian’s Baldur’s Gate 3 is already shaping up to be another RPG masterpiece from one of the genre’s greats. The developers behind the critically-acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin series have taken the reins of the iconic Dungeons & Dragons universe in this fantastic feast of turn-based tactics and excellent storytelling. It also plays perfectly on Stadia via PC and has surprisingly good controller support. It’s not on consoles yet, so this is the only way to play the game right now without a gaming PC.
Dawn of the Dark Ages:
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla for Stadia
There have been many great Assassin’s Creed games, and a lot of them are on Stadia, but the recent Valhalla is excellent in its own right. It’s an epic Viking story that puts you in the shoes of Eivor, a Viking warrior hellbent on revenge and conquering the lands of England. It continues the franchise’s diversion into the open-world RPG genre and streamlines many elements to make it one of the best in the entire series. If you sign up for Ubisoft on Stadia, you can play a ton of Assassin’s Creed games for one low subscription fee.
