The 10 Best Video Games

Last year may not have gone down as one of the best years in gaming, but hey, at least we got Untitled Goose Game. The 2010s, however, represented a step forward for the industry, with titles like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the Batman: Arkham series. Now, we’re nearly through the first year of a new decade, and in a twilight year too. The PS4 and Xbox One were booted to the trash heap, as we wished them farewell to welcome in a super-powered generation of machines. The PS5 showcased heavy-duty tech that rivaled the guts of even the strongest PC tower, while the less-heralded Xbox Series X proved itself to be just as formidable, if lacking in launch titles.

But fret not, the old consoles went out with a bang in terms of new games. This year was stacked with titles spanning all audiences, from plenty of action-RPGs and first-person shooters, to some insanely narrative-driven games, to some equally artful and wacky indie projects. A new Animal Crossing (!!) and a sequel to The Last of Us proved that you can always rely on impressive triple-A outings. Same goes for the always-innovative indie community, with a gem like Fall Guys blessing our consoles.

The previous-gen consoles’ goodbye tour was bittersweet—doubly so for all those folks who couldn’t get their hands on a PS5—but with boundary-pushing titles like Dreams and Ghost of Tsushima, it has been a great year for gaming. After hours of research (a.k.a. playing games), these are Esquire’s 11 best video games of 2020. If you’re still unhappy with this gaming slate, don’t forget that we’ll be blessed by the divine god SkateBIRD in due time.

The Last of Us Part II

The Last of Us Part II

The Last of Us Part II

Platform: PS4

Ah, yes. The game with a story so good that I’ll never—and I mean, never—play it again. The Last of Us Part II hit right in the first few months of the pandemic, which meant all of us were already in a not-so-stable mood when we first got a chance to catch up with Ellie and Joel again. As a follow-up to the famous first title from Naughty Dog, it was daunting, reckless, and unexpected. (I won’t spoil anything here, but you can check out my review if you’d like to relive some of the trauma.)

It defied a lot of what made the previous title so good, and caused a bit of a riptide in the gaming community. But, although it may have isolated some fans who were hoping for more of the same, Naughty Dog deserves a lot of credit for having the courage to spend some time looking in the mirror and reassessing the modern action-adventure genre that the studio itself helped create. They wrote a story so challenging, so tortured, that it left many of us flat on our backs, afraid to ever press start again.

In the months since, I’ve wondered what a video game needs to do to be good, or great. I’m not sure a game needs a narrative as heartbreaking as this one. Hell, I’m not even sure if it was wise of me to play it during a time like this. But at the end of the year, the game that sticks with me the most is The Last of Us II. And I don’t anticipate forgetting it anytime soon. Oh god, that golf club.

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Platform: PS4

This year we finally got to return to Midgar, and it was glorious. Sure, any game surrounded by this much hype was bound to have criticism heaped on it, but Final Fantasy VII Remake is a masterful reimagining of the title that redefined what an RPG could be. It takes the iconic story of the original and draws it out, but not in a shallow way.

Tetsuya Nomura and Square Enix fleshed out nearly everything in this world that could be fleshed out—like so many characters who appeared in FF7 but never got the time of day, save for roles as class fillers in the party—without making it drag. Remake also introduced an engaging style of action-RPG, melding the party balancing system from traditional RPGs with more fluid, flashy combat, and overturning the turned-based system.

It was revelatory as a longtime fan to dive back in and experience so much more of Midgar, all while digesting it in the way the original illustrators wanted our imaginations to see those primitive, blocky 3D characters more than 20 years ago. By no means does the Final Fantasy VII remake replace the original. It instead does something even better: It creates what feels like a truly new experience.

Demon’s Souls

Demon's Souls

Demon’s Souls

Platform: PS5

A game that started an entire subgenre of video games—and an overused delineation for difficulty—Demon’s Souls was fully remade this year as a launch title for the PS5, and it could not have turned out better.

Led by Bluepoint Studios, who remade Shadow of the Colossus back in 2018, this rebuild of the 2009 PS3 title seamlessly shows off just how much the PS5 can do. The textures, gameplay, lighting, and combat are the quintessential Souls experience while still feeling nothing like what I’ve ever experienced before from this caliber of game.

The demons and landscapes come to life in immense and remarkable detail, and everything from magic to armor has a unique glow or shine to it that’s just plain beautiful. Demon’s Souls is a hard game, that’s for sure, the darkest soul of Dark Souls, but with servers back up to summon blue phantoms for help, plus years and years of online guides, it’s more than manageable. This game is just too damn good for any PS5 owner to forgo playing for fear of intimidation.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Platform: Nintendo Switch

At this point, your island might be long forgotten, blanketed by a musty coat of weeds, weeping villagers everywhere, as your copy of Animal Crossing:

New Horizons sits untouched. Which… is okay, even if Henry the Frog and his sweet Virgo heart won’t ever recover from your absence. Just remember, please: Those cute animals were there for you during the early pandemic! Animal Crossing:

New Horizons blew up the scope of its predecessors, providing comfort to a whole damn planet in crisis. So, just know: When Tom Nook yelled at you and took your money, he really meant to take your mind away for a bit. Thank him. Thank him, Tommy, Timmy, and every fluffed creature in your pocket would for us all.

Ghost of Tsushima

Ghost of Tsushima

Ghost of Tsushima

Platform: PS4, PS5

Ghost of Tsushima wasn’t on my radar nearly as much as it should have been before its launch (my bad), and now it’s all I can play. This game demonstrates precise action-RPG combat, where timely dodges and blocking are crucial, then blends it with so many different (and challenging) playstyles.

Are you going to be Jin, sticking to the samurai code and facing your enemies head-on, crowd-controlling larger groups? Or are you going to work like a ghost, emphasizing stealth? The best part is you can, and should, do both.

These extremely polished combat styles are mixed with a metric ton of tools and abilities, and now that there’s online multiplayer, which is out of this world (especially for a free update), it’s amazing to see just how differently everyone plays this game—and how any strategy, after being refined, seems to work.

A title with a combat system so deep that it can support never-ending options for tackling any given obstacle deserves a massive amount of respect. Beyond all of that, it’s just a damn fun, and damn beautiful, game. Ghost of Tsushima blends stunning and non-exhausting open-world adventuring, intensely thoughtful combat, gorgeous landscapes, and in-depth story, peppered with homages to classic samurai cinema. It was a perfect send-off for the PS4, really showing what that generation ultimately became by taking the tech to its absolute limit.

Doom Eternal

Doom Eternal

Doom Eternal

Platform: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, Google Stadia, Nintendo Switch

Kill! Kill! Kill! When the quarantine first started, when all of us buckled down and shuttered ourselves inside for the indefinite future, I found a lot of comfort from Doom Eternal. I’m not a first-person shooter guy; I have trouble enjoying the genre and its constant skull-fracturing.

Maybe it’s my pandemic brain speaking right now, but Doom Eternal felt like a cold shot of joyful relief straight to the ass cheek. God, this game fucking rocked, didn’t it? I’d spend the day reading the worst news imaginable, and then start my evening by popping demons like bubble wrap.

For a few weeks, hell was like the inside of my head—there was bad stuff inside it, and only the Doomslayer could root it out. I ripped, tore, and exploded every dead-eyed ghoul I could find, until I killed Satan himself in the end. Eternal may not have had the best (or most coherent) story, but hey, towards the end of the game you get a fucking sword. More games should end with you getting a sword.

Dreams

Dreams

Dreams

Platform: PS4, PS5

It’s easy to call Dreams one of the best games of the year. The tougher question is to pick which game within Dreams is the biggest contender.

Media Molecule’s game maker playground, which liberates the expensive and closed-off world of game development, allowing for anyone with a PlayStation to chase their loftiest video game dreams (heh), is absolutely stuffed to the brim with inventive and impressive indie mini-titles.

There are a few fan-made Sonic games that finally show Sega how the speedy blue guy could work in three dimensions. A cute and inventive kaiju rampage game called Ruckus earned a lot of attention earlier this summer. The list goes on, but the real highlight of Dreams, I think, is all the horror experiences that people have made.

You can really craft any sort of game that you want in Dreams, and it seems like, right now, people have some stunning—and scary—ideas (I can’t imagine what sort of trauma might have caused that…). Earlier this year I wrote about Sinfeld Chronicles, a spooky exploring title based in the Seinfeld universe. I still check back in with Sinfeld every few months just to see what’s going on with Jerry, Kramer, and their demon-infested apartment building.

That’s really the joy of Dreams. It’s not just a video game, it’s a living, breathing network, built by gamers, for gamers. And I have a hunch that Dreams is going to continue to grow and spark the fascination of aspiring developers for many, many years to come.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC

Oh, man, did the THPS remake arrive just when we needed it. Who knew ska could sound so good in 2020? This year really was a huge step forward for remakes and remasters—we had Demon’s Souls, Insomniac’s Spider-Man, Super Mario 3D All-Stars… the list goes on. In past years, the act of remaking an old game usually meant just getting the bones of it to stand up on a modern-day console.

In 2020, a remake looks like a precious love letter. Activision combined all the nostalgia from the first two entries in its skateboarding franchise with gorgeous, sun-soaked 4K graphics, and a roster featuring all of skating’s most beloved icons, old and new.

God, did it feel good to drop into the Warehouse again, or to grind the helicopter in Hangar. Now, after such an uproarious reception, it seems like the sky’s the limit for the revitalized THPS series. The Birdman flies again! Here’s hoping that the follow-up brings back New Jersey from Tony Hawk’s Underground.

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

Platforms: PS4, PC

I’d been saying it for months, or at least since Fall Guys was revealed: It is a genius game, and it will be my Game of the Year. I’m stubborn so I’ll hold to that, but honestly, Fall Guys is one of those games that took the internet by storm. It’s extremely accessible, allowing anyone and everyone who wants to play it an easy opportunity.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s challenging, but only because you all keep grabbing me and getting in my damn way. This game is designed to pit players against each other and environments, causing mass battle royale chaos. Additionally, the art direction is just about the cutest thing to come out of 2020, not that there was a lot of competition there.

You’re a little bean, and now you can even wear a wizard hat, or a Sonic costume, or a Goose Game costume, or other outfits that keep players incentivized to earn those crowns; the game has a massive amount of revolving content and some truly cool collaborations. Fall Guys is just about the perfect example of infuriating fun—the type of game that has you losing and immediately starting back up to try again, never so mad as to rage quit, but always on the edge of your seat.

Crash 4: It’s About Time

Crash 4: It's About Time

Crash 4: It’s About Time

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One

Crash Bandicoot is an emotion to me. It’s so damn nostalgic, and as goofy as this character is, there’s a reason he can come out of the woodwork years later with the same hardcore loyal following.

Crash 4 is the first main series game we’ve seen since 1998, and it picks up right where Crash 3 left off. What the folks at Activision and Toys for Bobs did is a true feat, as it feels new and exciting while still tapping into those old Bandicoot skills. The gameplay is just as hard and unforgiving as ever, but in a wonderful way that I personally have been missing from 3D platformers for a while now.

All this coupled with the beautiful designs and visuals makes for the perfect rebirth of the old Crash. Crash and some others on this list prove that gaming, at least this year, unlike Hollywood, knows how to revitalize old franchises in a respectful way. Crash 4 is a must play for anyone, and with a ton of new difficulty settings and some stellar multiplayer features, even if Crash is traditionally not for you, there’s plenty here to mess around with that’ll make it fun bordering on emotional.

Top 10 Forests in the World

The Top 10 Forests in the World

As we move farther away from the equinox and towards the solstice, my part of the world is seeing not only more daylight, but also more sunshine, warmer temperatures, and — at least today — some glorious days to be out in nature. This weekend, have a listen to Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, Ronu Majumdar, Sabir Khan & Tarun Bhattacharya’s interpretive nature song,

while I share with you my list of the top 10 forests in the world that I’d most like to see!

The Amazon Rainforest, South America –

The Amazon Rainforest

The Amazon Rainforest

The largest rain-forest in the world, it dwarfs all other rain forests on Earth combined. There’s arguably a greater diversity of flora and fauna found here than anywhere else on the planet. There’s no way a simple picture can do this — or any of the forests listed here — true justice, but I’d love to experience it for myself.

The Amazon rainforest, covering much of northwestern Brazil and extending into Colombia, Peru and other South American countries, is the world’s largest tropical rainforest, famed for its biodiversity. It’s crisscrossed by thousands of rivers, including the powerful Amazon. River towns, with 19th-century architecture from rubber-boom days, include Brazil’s Manaus and Belém and Peru’s Iquitos and Puerto Maldonado.

Sequoia National Forest, California –

Sequoia National Forest

Sequoia National Forest

An entire forest named for the largest trees in the world, the sequoias. Above is an image of General Sherman, the tree with the single largest mass-and-volume in the world. It’s older than the Roman Empire, nearly as tall as the Statue of Liberty, wider than all trees except the baobabs, and in 2006 lost a branch that was bigger than most full-grown trees! If you took just the trunk and dehydrated all the water out of it, it would still weigh over 1,000 tonnes. And yes, there’s a whole forest full of trees just like it.

Redwood National Park, California –

Redwood National Park

Redwood National Park

Home to the tallest trees in the world, I’ve actually seen a number of Redwoods along the California and Oregon coasts, although I’ve never been to the eponymous national (or state) park. A forest of trees stretching upwards so high that you can’t even see the treetops on a foggy day, this is too close for me to not see it, and soon. I really have no excuse.

On the other hand, there are plenty of forests I want to see that would require a little more legwork.

The Crooked Forest, Poland –

The Crooked Forest

The Crooked Forest

The youngest forest on my list, the Crooked Forest was planted around 1930, and consists of around 400 oddly-curved trees like this. Appearing to be normal pine trees in an otherwise unremarkable forest, it’s thought that they’re curved like this due to some hitherto undiscovered human intervention. So unique, it reminds me of Pearl Fryer, and I’d love to get the chance to experience it for myself.

Jog Falls Environs, India –

Jog Falls environs

Jog Falls environs

While most of India’s primeval forest has changed dramatically thanks to human intervention, North Sentinel Island is not exactly on the list of places where I think I’d be welcomed. Jog Falls, on the other hand, is the largest waterfall in India, shown here during monsoon season, at its most spectacular! The entire western region of India is home to some of the greatest biodiversity in the world, and I’d love the chance to walk through the forested areas here.

Daintree Rainforest, Australia –

Daintree Rainforest

Daintree Rainforest

The oldest surviving rainforest in the world, Daintree is among the most biodiverse regions in the world as far as plants, marsupials, insects and spiders are concerned. How could you not be intrigued?

The Daintree Rainforest is a region on the northeast coast of Queensland, Australia, north of Mossman and Cairns. At around 1,200 square kilometres, the Daintree is a part of the largest continuous area of tropical rainforest on the Australian continent.

Black Forest, Germany –

Black Forest

Black Forest

Called “black” by the Romans because of how the dense conifers so successfully block out the Sun, even during the daytime, the black forest is dotted with lakes that formed from the melt at the end of the last ice age. The black forest contains eight of the highest mountains in the Europe mountain peaks over 1,000 meters in elevation, and is home to unique animals found nowhere else, such as the giant earthworm. Pretty cool!

 Jiuzhaigou Valley, Sichuan, China –

Jiuzhaigou Valley

Jiuzhaigou Valley

I mean, just look at that picture, will you? Both an UNESCO world heritage site and a world biosphere reserve, this valley on the edge of the Tibetan Plateau is full of colorful lakes, multiple waterfalls, snow-capped peaks, and of course, beautiful primeval forests. 30 years ago, only 5,000 tourists visited this region each year; now that number is well in excess of a million. And even though I know that increased human traffic means that keeping the site pristine takes more and more effort, I still want to see this for myself.

Beech Forest, Germany –

Beech Forest

Beech Forest

 Not so much a single “place” as it is a collection of forest sites across many different nations, this is another UNESCO world heritage site. Dominated by Beech trees, they form an impressive canopy even in the winter, as this photo by Martin Hertel elegantly shows.

Beech Forest is a town in Victoria, Australia. The area of Beech Forest is largely used for potato farming. The town was named after the many myrtle beech trees of the area. Beech Forest Post Office opened on 10 May 1890 and closed in 1994

 Sagano Bamboo Forest, Japan –

Sagano Bamboo Forest

Sagano Bamboo Forest

I’ve never seen a forest like this before, and I didn’t learn about it until years after I was in Japan. How was I to know that I was only a few miles (kilometres) away from this wonder when I spent time in Kyoto? The entire district of Arashiyama looks beautiful, but the great bamboo forest is surely the great highlight!

And that’s a wonderful collection of my top 10 forests that I’d love to visit, someday. Hope you enjoyed it, and feel free to comment on these choices, as well as to share any others that have connected with you!

Top 10 Tips for Exam Preparation.

Top 10 Tips For Exam Preparation.

A test or review (informally, exam or evaluation) is a type of educational testing that is used to determine a test-ability, taker’s abilities, aptitude, physical health, or classification in a variety of subjects (e.g., beliefs). A test can be given orally, on paper, on a screen, or in a specific location where the test taker must explain or execute a series of skills. The style, rigor, and specifications of tests differ. For test formats and complexity, there is no universal agreement or pattern. The structure and complexity of the exam are often determined by the instructor’s instructional style, subject matter, class size, educational institution policies, and accreditation or regulatory body standards. A teacher, a clinician, a governing body, or a test provider can create and administer a test. It’s possible that the test’s creator isn’t specifically responsible for its administration in some cases. The Educational Testing Service (ETS), for example, is a nonprofit educational testing and evaluation agency that produces standardized assessments like the SAT but is not actively interested in their administration or proctoring.

Give yourself enough time to study:

Top 10 Tips For Exam Preparation.

Make a research plan that works for you and don’t put it off at the last minute. Although some students seem to rely on last-minute learning, this method of partial studying is also not the right way to prepare for exams. Make a list of how many tests you have coming up, how many pages you need to memorize, and how many days you have left. After that, organize your research patterns to fit your needs.

Make sure your study space is organized:

Best Study Tips

Top 10 Tips For Exam Preparation.

Make sure you have enough space on your desk to spread your textbooks and notes. Ensuring that the room is sufficiently bright and your chair restful enough are also points to consider. Pay attention to information that might cause you to lose focus and delete them from your research area. Ascertain that you are at ease with your research environment and that you are able to concentrate. For others, this may imply total isolation, while for some, listening to music may be beneficial. Some of us need full order in order to concentrate, while others choose to research in a more cluttered environment. Make sure your study environment is welcoming and relaxing so you can focus completely.

Use flow charts and diagrams:

When revising research content, visual aids may be particularly useful. Write down everything you already know about the subject at the start of a topic. Turn the revision notes into a schematic as the exam approaches. As a result, visual memory will significantly help your exam preparation.

Practice on old exams:

Practice with an old version of previous exams is one of the most effective ways to prepare for exams. An old test will also help you see the format and formulation of the questions, which will be useful not only for knowing what to expect but also for estimating the amount of time you’ll need for the actual test.

Explain your answers to others:

The brain requires regular breaks in order to recover its concentration. Long-term memory retention is almost rare, but studying over long periods of time is not the right strategy. The most crucial aspect of studying is to develop a research routine that suits your learning style.

Snacking on healthy food is good for the brain:

Top 10 Fastest Motorcycles In The World.

A motorcycle, also known as a motorbike, bike, or cycle, is a two-or three-wheeled motor vehicle with two or three wheels. Long-distance travel, commuting, cruising, competition, including racing, and off-road riding are just some of the uses for which motorcycles are built. Riding a motorcycle and participating in other similar social activities such as joining a motorcycle club and holding motorcycle events are both examples of motorcycle rallies. The first internal combustion, the petroleum-fueled motorcycle was the Daimler Reitwagen, which was built in Germany by Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach in 1885. Hildebrand & Wolfmüller introduced the first series production motorcycle in 1894. Honda (28 percent), Yamaha (17 percent), and Hero MotoCorp (both from Japan) were the top three motorcycle manufacturers in the world by production in 2014. (India). Motorcycles are considered utilitarian in developed countries due to cheaper costs and better fuel economy. But for car-centric Japan, the Asia-Pacific and Southern and Eastern Asia areas account for 58 percent of all motorcycles in the country.

The Suzuki GSX-R1000 is a sport motorcycle from Suzuki’s GSX-R range. It was released in 2001 to replace the GSX-R1100 and is powered by a 988 cc (60.3 cu in) liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder four-stroke engine. Suzuki unveiled a new GSX-R model in 2001, replacing the GSX-R1100, the largest and most powerful model in the GSX-R range, with the all-new GSX-R1000. The engine had a cylinder displacement of about 1,000 cc (61 cu in), which was around 100 ccs less than its predecessor. While it shared many features with its smaller sibling, the GSX-R1000 was not just an enlarged version of the GSX-R750. Both versions have the same mainframe, but the big brother’s content was.5 mm (0.020 in) thicker. In contrast to the GSX-R750, Suzuki claims that the frame’s torsional rigidity has improved by 10%.

The Honda CBR1000RR was created by the same team that created the MotoGP championship. Many of the innovations seen on the Honda CBR600RR, a direct descendant of the RC211V, were carried over to the current CBR1000RR, including a longer swingarm, Unit Pro-Link rear suspension, and a Dual Stage Fuel Injection System (DSFI).

Yamaha YZF-R1:

Yamaha YZF-R1. Top 10 Fastest Motorcycles In The World.

The YZF-R1 was introduced after Yamaha redesigned the Genesis engine to make it more compact by lifting the gearbox input shaft and placing the gearbox output shaft underneath it. Other manufacturers adopted this “stacked gearbox” design. The engine could be made even smaller by compacting it, enabling the wheelbase to be reduced. Because of the optimized center of gravity, the chassis construction was able to position the engine’s weight in the frame to help to handle. The swingarm could be lengthened without jeopardizing the overall wheelbase, which was just 1,385 mm long (54.5 in). The engine was fed fuel by four 40 mm Keihin CV carburetors. It was equipped with KYB upside-down 41 mm front forks and semi-floating 300 mm disc brakes.

Suzuki Hayabusa. Top 10 Fastest Motorcycles In The World.

Suzuki has been producing the GSX1300R Hayabusa sportbike since 1999. With a maximum speed of 303 to 312 km/h, it was quickly dubbed the world’s fastest development motorcycle (188 to 194 mph). Fears of a regulatory outcry or import ban in Europe led to an informal deal between Japanese and European manufacturers in 1999 to set an arbitrary maximum speed limit for their motorcycles. The speed agreement was consistently 186 mph in miles per hour, although it ranged from 299 to 303 km/h in kilometers per hour, which is normal given unit conversion rounding errors.

Rockefeller became the world’s first confirmed U.S. dollar billionaire in 1916, and still holds the title of history’s second-wealthiest individual. As of 2018, there are over 2,200 U.S. dollar billionaires worldwide, with a combined wealth of over US$9.1 trillion, up from US$7.67 trillion in 2017.

Top 10 Luxury Cars In The World.

Top 10 Luxury Cars In The World.

A luxury car is a car that, for a higher price, offers higher levels of comfort, facilities, amenities, efficiency, performance, and status than standard cars. The concept is subjective, reflecting both the car‘s characteristics and the manufacturer’s brand image.

Rolls-Royce Phantom

Mansory Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII: The ugliest car for tasteless billionaires? - The Financial Express..

Rolls-Royce Phantom. Top 10 Luxury Cars In The World.

In 2017, Rolls-Royce took over as the world’s most opulent and luxurious automobile. You can sample its supremely relaxing and singularly isolating ride comfort from the back seats, and it’s unlike anything else you’ll experience in a car: gently loping and deliciously indulgent-feeling, but still supremely quiet and smooth, considering Rolls-Royce‘s of the new run-flat tire technology. Despite being a near three-tonne love song to splendid isolation, this car will accelerate from 0 to 100 mph and through the gears at 30 to 70 mph faster than the previous Ford Focus RS.

Rolls-Royce Ghost:

Rolls-Royce Ghost. Top 10 Luxury Cars In The World.

The mechanical underpinnings of the Ghost were originally adapted from the BMW 7 Series, but it now shares the same ‘Architecture of Luxury’ platform as the Cullinan and Phantom. Rolls-mass Royce’s dampers for the front suspension and an active anti-roll bar for the rear axle, for example, help put ride quality closer than ever to that of the Phantom. The Ghost was designed to be a car for the wealthy, and its complex personality reflects that. It’s more suited to the cut-and-thrust of everyday driving on congested UK roads than its bigger sibling. The car is just a rung or two below its larger sibling, following Rolls-current Royce’s ‘post-opulence’ concept approach both inside and out.

Bentley Flying Spur:

Bentley Flying Spur. Top 10 Luxury Cars In The World.

The Bentley Flying Spur is a luxury saloon that Bentley Motors Limited has been producing since 2005 and has been available since 2006. It’s the Bentley Continental GT coupé’s four-door version. This was a deliberate effort by Bentley’s designers to move the Flying Spur in a more opulent direction and separate it from the more driver-oriented 2-door Continental GT range. It also provides the foundation for truly good driving dynamics by better isolating the lane’s fantastic opulent cabin. Grip, balance, and steering have all improved noticeably.

Mercedes-Maybach S-Class

Benz Attacks Superluxury Rivals With V8 And V12 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Limousine

Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. Top 10 Luxury Cars In The World.

The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is the new standard-bearer for Daimler’s Maybach super-luxury brand. It is the richest and most special car in what may be the world’s most widely respected and admired limousine series. S-Class also provides all of the advanced active suspension and driver assistance systems that contribute to the car’s brilliant refinement, richness, and comfort. The flagship S650’s 603bhp twin-turbocharged petrol V12 is barely audible, and the car’s commitment to comfort and good manners is exceptional. With an 18cm longer wheelbase than even the long-wheelbase variant of the regular S-Class, even the longest-legged passengers will have plenty of space.

Bentley Mulsanne:

Bentley Mulsanne. Top 10 Luxury Cars In The World.

The Bentley Mulsanne is a full-size luxury car produced by Bentley between 2010 and 2020. This fastest car is named after the Mulsanne Corner on the Le Man’s race track, where Bentley race cars have won six times in the 24-hour format. The Mulsanne is a top-of-the-line luxury four-door with a tiny g. It has a less formal interior than the Rolls-Royce Phantom, with a paneled smoking space that looks more like an old gentleman’s club than the Phantom’s chandeliered ballroom. The luster and natural appeal of its wood veneers, as well as the tactile allure of many of its fittings, are second to none.

Rolls-Royce Cullinan:

Rolls-Royce Cullinan. Top 10 Luxury Cars In The World.

The Cullinan has received enough design feedback from various quarters to instill a sense that its creator has taken a considerable risk in introducing a car that some have characterized as awkward and unlovely, while others have slammed in even harsher terms. There’s just as much to like about life onboard this car as there is to hate about the concept or the way it looks. This is a real Rolls-Royce, with outstanding mechanical refinement, unrivaled ride comfort, and excellent drivability among its versatile strengths.

Bentley Bentayga:

Bentley Bentayga. Top 10 Luxury Cars In The World.

The Bentley Bentayga is a five-door luxury crossover that debuted in 2016 as a mid-size front-engine, all-wheel-drive vehicle. Its body is designed at Volkswagen’s Zwickau-Mosel plant in Germany, then painted at Paintbox Editions in Banbury, England, before being assembled at Bentley’s Crewe factory. The Bentayga had a tumultuous time in the Autocar road test evaluation phase. Being the first of a slew of £100,000-plus super-SUVs to hit the market in 2016, we rated it highly in W12-engined form, with a few caveats, and then even higher when Bentley launched a 4.0-liter, 429bhp turbocharged diesel V8 from Audi in 2017, which produced the same amount of torque as the twelve-cylinder petrol engine but at more manageable crank speeds.

Range Rover SVAutobiography:

Range Rover SVAutobiography. Top 10 Luxury Cars In The World.

Since the genesis days of the popular SUV upon which it is based, Range Rover has come a long way as a luxury vehicle. The new SVAutobiography is a car that is now entirely 5.2 meters long and 2.6 tonnes in weight at its heaviest, hand-finished by Land Rover at its Special Operations base near Coventry. It was designed to capitalize on the nascent demand for super-expensive SUVs. and the high regard in which some people hold the Range Rover brand, and it does so very well. Ride comfort and isolation are both improved over that car, but neither is quite up to par with the most refined cars in this segment; some sharper edges seem to test the structural limits of the car’s underbody, thudding through the ride composure slightly.

Alpina B7:

From 2011 to 2015, the Alpina B7 (F01) was the fourth generation of Alpina’s high-performance BMW 7 Series. The car, which was based on the BMW 7 Series (F01), was unveiled to the public at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show and came in both standard and long-wheelbase models. It was the second Alpina B7 to arrive in the United States. As is customary with Alpina, its version of a series-production BMW model has two sides. The B7’s powertrain and suspension have been significantly modified to make it not only quicker but also better handling than any other 7-Series.

Mercedes-AMG S65:

Mercedes-AMG S65. Top 10 Luxury Cars In The World.

The mechanical make-up of the top-of-the-range performance version of the outgoing S-Class limousine hasn’t changed much in more than a decade, despite the fact that it’s about to be overhauled with the all-new S-Class as the base car. You could argue that this car didn’t need to because it has a leviathan of a twin-turbocharged petrol V12 that produces 621bhp and 738lb-ft of torque. It’s an engine that can propel a two-and-a-quarter-tonne, 5.3-meter-long, rear-drive limousine from 0 to 62mph in just 4.2 seconds – and that’s before it’s really settled down, found its legs, and gotten moving.
