Whether you’re just looking for something to play over your days-off in the coming weeks or desperate to escape back into the world of Star Wars following The Last Jedi, there are plenty of options.

The list that follows isn’t necessarily of the best Star Wars games overall. No series has had more licensed video game adaptation and even reasonable people disagree over which games remain the most fun, interesting, or true to the source material. You can check out the list of every Star Wars game ranked at our sister-site.

Instead, the below just serves as a quick guide to the variety of Star Wars games out there and available on current platforms (just about all of the games are old enough that you should’t have trouble running them on a mid-tier PC or laptop). Whether you prefer MMOs, action platformers, pinball, or racing games, there’s a Star Wars game for you.
