Next up on our list is Sleeping Dogs, a great game for players who enjoy hand-to-hand combat in video games. The storyline of this game is set in Hong Kong, where players are given control of an undercover Cop named Wei Shen.

Wei Shen is a martial artist who uses numerous combos to take down his enemies. Players can also attend a Kung Fu school where Wei can perfect his moves and learn some new techniques as well. I personally prefer hand-to-hand combat overshooting in this game.

Players can also find tons of clothing stores spread across the map where they can customize Wei’s outfit and buy some threads for him as well. It feels like the developers took their jobs seriously while developing this game. Make sure to try out this game if you haven’t yet.
