These days video games aren’t all about driving indestructible vehicles and jumping from the top of the building without any injuries. People want to experience the joy of getting hurt while facing life and death situations, even while playing a game.
These days almost every game incorporates physics in its gameplays. From simulating the crashing of vehicles to damage of explosives and bullets, it all comes down to implementing good physics mechanics in the game.
If you are searching for games that have taken full advantage of physics in their gameplays, here are the best ones that you should try.

In the game, you drive different kinds of heavy vehicles and deliver goods from one location to another though through harsh terrains and environments. It is one of the most challenging off-road simulation games out there.
The gameplay is basically delivering the cargo to the designated location. It is a simple game with a simple goal, but its environment is what makes this game so interesting. You need to drive through forests, snowy mountains, swamps, and rivers in order to get your job done. And when you complete a level, you go through all of that again in the next one.
The damage physics in this game is also very realistic. You actually need to drive your vehicle like you would drive your own vehicle. You need to make sure you’re not going too fast, drive extra carefully around dangerous areas as well as make sure you have enough fuel to complete the level.

The details in this game are very detailed and represent the structures of the real world. Also, the dynamic weather and day/night cycle adds another dimension to the game. Although it doesn’t have campaign missions, you can have lots of fun by setting up your own goals.
The physics in this game is also very realistic. Flying a plane in this game isn’t like in other games where you just use your arrow keys to control it. You need to take into account different variables such as weather, altitude, and wind pressure when you’re playing this game.
It is one of the most annoying and punishing games you’ll ever play. You might have seen many clips of people playing this game and raging like madmen on Youtube. Well, this game is exactly like that. It is hard and challenging yet very addicting.

The battle starts when you jump off an aircraft and land on the ground. Then you scavenge the area for weapons and resources, kill any players that you see, and try to survive till the end. Although this game can be played solo, you probably want to queue as a squad as it gets very difficult when you’re alone.
Warzone contains various weapons and vehicles that you can find and use throughout the game. It has some of the most realistic graphics and physics in video games. The weapons all use physics and mechanics from the real world, which includes higher recoil when you’re shooting an enemy from far. You also need to adjust your aim if you’re using a sniper.

Poly Bridge 2 is a simple game where you build bridges to let vehicles pass from one point to another. But it can be quite tricky to build one which supports the weight of the vehicle as you have a limited budget for each level.
You have access to different types of materials that you can use throughout the levels. But these materials cost a certain amount of money, so you’ll only be able to use them as much as your budget allows.
The game also becomes significantly harder once you reach higher levels as heavier vehicles get introduced, and gaps between the river also increase. At a certain point, you’ll also have to use hydraulics to let ships pass by to avoid crashing.
Goat Simulator isn’t much of a game, but interesting things keep happening when you’re playing it. In the game, you play as a goat in a third-person perspective and do all sorts of crazy stuff. You can run, jump, drag objects around with your tongue, and bash into objects like a psychopath.

Noita is another difficult but addicting indie game that takes its inspiration from Finnish mythology. In this game, your goal is to clear the levels in which literally everything is trying to kill you. From the environment to terrifying creatures, they can all kill you very easily, and you will die a lot of times as well.
And if that didn’t kill you, wait till you meet the bosses with ridiculous abilities that can end your life in ways that you can’t even imagine. From the moment you start the first level, you will experience death like it is your second job. But the world of this game is procedurally, so even if you die, you won’t be having the same run again.
Also, each level has different hidden items that you can find to get stronger. Finding these items can be nearly impossible, though. The game doesn’t tell you much about the gameplay, but considering how many times you’ll repeat a single level, you can pretty much expect to learn everything from experience.

The environments also change drastically as you move across levels, and various environmental hazards get added, making the game difficult as you move forward. One bad thing about this game is that it never ends once you start playing, so the only way to end it is to quit when you’re bored.
