10 games like Hogwarts Legacy to scratch that magical itch

Relive the magic through another game.

In my opinion, Hogwarts Legacy is the best Harry Potter game to date. While it’s hard to find something to match it, especially in the Harry Potter world, I’ve compiled a list of really great games that you’ll likely love if you love Hogwarts Legacy.

What are great games that are similar to Hogwarts Legacy?

Hogwarts Legacy is a magical adventure game with exploration, collecting, light combat, and a lot of great narratives. With this in mind, combined with my powers of knowing a lot about a lot of video games, here are some great games you’ll likely love if you love Hogwarts Legacy.

Horizon Forbidden West

If you love exploring a beautiful world via broom, Horizon Forbidden West has the same thing but the land is a post-apocalyptic (the beautiful “nature takes over” kind) West United States, and the broomstick is a robot pterodactyl.

You can start with Horizon Zero Dawn since Horizon Forbidden West is the sequel, but regardless, I love both games and think they are very similar to Hogwarts Legacy. The combat is more demanding in a very good way and the story is more unique; it’s a world that’s been taken over by robot dinosaurs and the humans have reverted back to primitive methods to survive, what’s not to like?

Forspoken

Honestly, I don’t think Forspoken is that good of a game in general, but it’s a really great one to try since it is similar to Hogwarts Legacy. Forspoken is basically an isekai where an American girl becomes the hero of a fantastical land and she needs to defeat the corrupt rulers to stop the darkness from taking over. Generic fantasy stuff.

The combat is really flashy and the world is big (but very empty) and very pretty. The narrative is kind of predictable but fun all the same. Like I said, I’m not the biggest fan of Forspoken, but maybe you’ll love it.

Final Fantasy 16

Final Fantasy 16 is another one I didn’t love (I don’t know why I don’t like Square Enix games when some of my all-time favorite games are Kingdom Harts 1 and 2), but I didn’t play a lot of it, either. This entry in Final Fantasy is medieval and magical, so check and check for our Hogwarts Legacy comparison.

Final Fantasy 16 has engaging combat, interesting stories to tell, and epic battles on epic set pieces. A lot of people really loved Final Fantasy 16, so it’s definitely one to look into and consider.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage

If you haven’t played an Assassin’s Creed game yet, you should give one a go. The one that I recommend is Assassin’s Creed Mirage because I heard it was a lot of fun and a return to the scaled-down original AC formula.

However, if you loved the open world in Hogwarts Legacy, you should check out the RPG Assassin’s Creed games: Assassin’s Creed Origins which is set in Egypt, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey which is set in Greece, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla which is set in Viking times in Scandinavia.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

Trade in your wand for a lightsaber. I love the Star Wars Jedi games and Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the second installment in the series, is very fun and, in my opinion, the most realized and lived-in Star Wars open-world game to date. You can check out Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order first if you want, but if you want to dive into another beautiful world with a beautiful adventure, go play Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

One of my all-time favorite games ever is Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. This game has it all: one of the best stories told in video games, a globe-trotting adventure centered around ancient and modern pirates, and engaging puzzles, gunfights, and chase scenes.

I think you’ll like Uncharted 4 because it’s an epic adventure of grand proportions similar to Hogwarts Legacy. Honestly, I replay Uncharted 4 every couple of years just because I love how it plays and I love the story. Naughty Dog, more please!

Moonstone Island

If you enjoy the cozy environment of Hogwarts Legacy and if you love Studio Ghibli, then you should check out Moonstone Island. This game has a bit of everything: romance, monster collecting, exploring, and farming.

The atmosphere of Moonstone Island is so charming and the vibes are very chill. Take this one for a spin if you want something engaging but also relaxing… plus, you play as a witch! It doesn’t get closer to Hogwarts Legacy than that!

Kena: Bridge of Spirits

Kena: Bridge of Spirits is an indie game that won a lot of awards when it launched in 2021, and rightly so. Though this game does have a challenging difficulty curve especially when fighting bosses, Kena: Bridge of Spirits is all about magic and restoring life to the forest.

It’s beautiful, the combat is fun and fluid, and the little creatures (and accessories for said creatures) you find along the way are so cute. This is another great game to try after Hogwarts Legacy because of similar themes and playstyles.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy

Though I haven’t played it yet, I’ve heard really great things about Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel is another big cinematic universe similar to Harry Potter which is why it’s a great game to try out.

Like Hogwarts Legacy, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is a third-person action-adventure, but this one doesn’t have an open world and instead hones in on telling a really good story. If you love the characters in Guardians of the Galaxy (who doesn’t?), then this is definitely a game worth trying.

Baldur’s Gate 3

I’ll plug Baldur’s Gate 3 whenever and wherever possible. Baldur’s Gate 3 is a massive RPG that is almost a 1:1 of Dungeons and Dragons that is more complex than Hogwarts Legacy and every game on this list. There’s an engaging narrative to follow, tons of classes and races to play as, and tons and tons of personal decisions to make that make your playthrough drastically different from someone else’s.

Though Baldur’s Gate 3 can be an intimidating experience because there are a lot of mechanics to learn, it’s a very fun game that has a lot to offer. Besides it just being really, really good, the established world of the Forgotten Realms and the magic and mystery make Baldur’s Gate 3 a great game to play after Hogwarts Legacy. As a warning, if you haven’t already heard, Baldur’s Gate 3 is much more adult-themed than Hogwarts Legacy (and maybe any game ever).
