Tiny Tina's Wonderlands is the latest creation from Gearbox Software, which takes the usual Borderlands format and plunges it into a fantastical new universe. Filled with mythical beasts and magical weapons, the spin-off game looks radically different from past entries but still brings much of the same charm, vulgarity, and (above all else) a whole lot of loot.

Aside from the standard Borderlands fare, Tiny Tina's Wonderlands introduces a star-studded cast of voice actors. Tiny Tina serves as your guide through the action, and she continues to be voice by Ashly Burch. Joining her on this new quest are three high-profile names: Will Arnett, Andy Samberg, and Wanda Sykes.

Arnett steps into the shoes of the Dragon Lord, the antagonist at the heart of Wonderlands. He's been desperately trying to conquer the land for years — only to be thwarted by Queen Butt Stallion (seriously) at every turn. Skyes, meanwhile, plays Frette, an aptly named robot who has a penchant for sticking to the rulebook, and Samberg is voicing Captain Valentine. The three play a large role in the game's narrative and bring their own comedic voices to its bizarre story.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands is slated to get four new bits of DLC in the coming months, but you'll have a bit of downtime between each launch. If you've blown through everything Tiny Tina's Wonderlands has to offer so far, there are plenty of other great games on the market to keep you busy while you patiently wait for the next batch of content.

Here are 10 games like Tiny Tina's Wonderlands to play next, listed by Metascore.

Fable II (XB360)

Metascore: 89
Best for: Fans of story-driven RPGs
Where to buy:


Also available on: N/A

The original Fable earned generally favorable reviews in 2004, but it failed to live up to some of its grand expectations. Fable II set out to right those wrongs, and quickly became one of the most innovative RPGs on the market. Set in the whimsical world of Albion, you're given near limitless freedom to craft your own character before embarking on any number of adventures. It's not short on humor, either, with quirky characters and bizarre locations offering a few laughs while you're out to save the world. The action RPG received another game (Fable III) in 2011, although this middle entry still carries the best Metascore in the franchise.

"Invest in Albion, its inhabitants and its history; embrace the power you're afforded to shape yourself and the world around you and Fable II is an astonishing achievement." — IGN UK

Diablo III (PC)

Metascore: 88
Best for: Fans of ARPGs
Where to buy:


Also available on: PS3, XB360

Diablo III looks a lot different than Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, offering dark and moody graphics and a story that's light on laughs. If you can look beyond the art style, however, the two games share a lot of similarities. Both are tailor-made for cooperative play and replayability, with secrets hidden around every corner and numerous ways to build your character and change up your play style. They're also big on throwing loot your way, with no shortage of weapons and gear available after slaying a gigantic boss. Diablo III has only grown better over the years (thanks to dozens of patches) and fans can expect to see Diablo IV arriving in the very near future.

"Games this thoughtfully crafted don't happen very often, and the care that Blizzard has taken with Diablo III shows in every facet of its design and execution." — Polygon

Torchlight 2

Torchlight II (PC)

Metascore: 88
Best for: Fans of loot (and lots of it)
Where to buy: N/A
Also available on: PS4, Switch, XB1

Much like Diablo III, Torchlight II is an ARPG played from a top-down perspective. It's much lighter in tone, however, with both a cartoonish art style and fewer nightmare-inducing enemies. Its biggest selling point is its unparalleled freedom — which is accentuated by pile after pile of unique loot. Whether you're looking to build a gunslinger that eliminates foes from afar or a lightning-fast ninja that gets in close for a kill, the only limit is your imagination. If you don't mind switching to a top-down view from Wonderlands' first-person perspective, you'll find Torchlight II to offer another bombastic adventure with hours' worth of content.

"Torchlight II is an excellent game no matter how you slice it. As big of a Diablo III fan as I am, the margin between the two is razor-thin — and I have to give the nod to Torchlight II." — Game Informer

Borderlands 2: Tiny Tina's Assault On Dragon Keep (XB360)

Metascore: 86
Best for: Fans that need more Tiny Tina's Wonderlands
Where to buy:


Also available on: PC, PS3

Before the world had Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, Gearbox Studios graced fans with Tiny Tina's Assault On Dragon Keep. Originally launched as DLC for Borderlands 2, the content was re-released as Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep: A Wonderlands One-Shot — a standalone adventure that doesn't require the original title that is

. Despite its long name, the game is essentially a shortened version of Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, offering the usual Borderlands gameplay in a medieval universe. It also served as a sort of "trial run" for Gearbox, giving the team a blueprint for the core concepts of Wonderlands.

"Extremely funny and surprisingly poignant, Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep is the Borderlands 2 magnum opus." — The Escapist

Destiny 2

Destiny 2 (PS4)

Metascore: 85
Best for: Fans of tight gunplay and cooperative action
Where to buy:


Also available on: PC, PS5, XB1, XBX

From the same studio that developed Halo, Destiny 2 is one of the most popular live service games on the market. At the center of it all is engaging gunplay, making it a blast to simply roam around and get into the thick of large-scale conflicts. All your endeavors are rewarded with new gear (including unique weapons with exclusive abilities), which you can take into a variety of cooperative and competitive game modes. The game is best played with a few friends, as some of its most exciting content is locked behind the need for a party of six.

"Destiny 2 isn't perfect, and I hesitate to recommend it for solo players, but for anyone that hopes to play in a group — there really is nothing else like it." — RPG Site

The Outer Worlds

Steampowered

The Outer Worlds (PS4)

Metascore: 85
Best for: Fans of open-world adventures
Where to buy:


Also available on: PC, Switch, XB1

The Outer Worlds is arguably the funniest game on this list. Set in the year 2355, you'll play as the Stranger — a passenger on a colonist ship that's been awakened after years of floating through space. Almost immediately you're given the task of saving the rest of the passengers onboard, although the story becomes increasingly more complex the longer you play. What doesn't change, however, is the sarcasm and tongue-in-cheek references, with industrialism and capitalism largely the butt of every joke. Aside from its Wonderlands-like humor, the variety of weapons and diverse landscapes should give Tiny Tina fans plenty of reason to keep exploring.

"More than just Fallout in space, this action-RPG is a delightful sci-fi romp with razor-sharp writing, lashings of humor and enough content to entertain you for months." — Guardian

Tales From the Borderlands

Tales from the Borderlands (PC)

Metascore: 85
Best for: Fans of episodic adventure games

Also available on: iOS, PS3, PS4, SwitchXB1XB360

Tales from the Borderlands is a spin-off game set in the same universe as the main series. And even though it was developed by Telltale Games instead of Gearbox, much of its charm and wit shines through in this wacky adventure title. You'll once again be stepping into the shoes of Vault Hunters, but this time the narrative is much more important, with dialogue choices driving the action forward. It's a much slower experience than everything else in the series (thanks to standard point-and-click gameplay), but fans who need more Borderlands in their life won't want to pass it up.

"Hilarious, heartfelt and high-octane, Tales from the Borderlands is a must-play game that sets a new standard for comedy games to come." — GamesRadar+

Borderlands 3

Steampowered

Borderlands 3 (PC)

Metascore: 81
Best for: Fans of sophomoric shooters
Where to buy:


Also available on: PS4, PS5, Stadia, XB1, XBX

Crass, unapologetic, and decidedly juvenile — Borderlands 3 takes everything fans loved from the first two games and cranks them up to 11. Aside from its usual cast of off-the-wall characters and slick graphics, Borderlands 3 offers more guns than ever before. Once you've worked through the looter shooter's main story, a host of DLC is available to keep you playing for months on end. The best way to experience the action is with a few buddies by your side, although solo players will still find a deep adventure that provides more than a few laughs.

"Gearbox has taken the Borderlands formula and improved it to achieve the definitive 'looter shooter.' Bigger, better, longer and funnier, Borderlands 3 is legendary loot." — Hobby Consolas

Black Desert

Black Desert (PC)

Metascore: 73
Best for: Fans of fast combat and MMORPGs
Where to buy:


Also available on: PS4, XB1

Black Desert is one of the best-looking MMORPGs in the genre. The game's impressive graphics and fantastical locales are often the first reason people give Black Desert a download, but its fast-paced combat and competitive action is why they stay. Instead of pressing a hotkey to perform a skill, you'll need to remember various button combinations to pull off your most powerful attacks. It's learning curve can be steep depending on which class you pick, but with a variety of play styles to choose from (and lots of loot and upgrading to be had), there's no shortage of action in Black Desert.

"While the beginnings are tough and confusing, the game rewards our patience with lots of combat and non-combat activities, a fascinating world to explore and fantastic graphics." — Meristation

Warframe (PS4)

Metascore: 64
Best for: Fans of space ninjas and parkour
Where to buy:


Also available on: PCPS5, Switch, XB1

If you loved everything about Tiny Tina's Wonderlands but thought it could use more space ninjas, Warframe might be a perfect fit. The game revolves around the simple loop of finding a group, picking a mission, shooting down hundreds of enemies, and upgrading your gear. What keeps things interesting is the variety of enemies thrown your way and the thousands of possible upgrade paths. You're also encouraged to try new weapons and gear, with your overall level largely tied to your proficiency with the game's arsenal. The sci-fi and space ninja aesthetics might not be in the wheelhouse of all Wonderlands players, but no doubt there are plenty of similarities lurking below the surface.

"Digital Extremes has made an enjoyable, engrossing, spectacular game. Especially, when you find yourself a team or — even better — invite some friends." — GRYOnline.pl
