Most of this year’s blockbuster games are still way in the future. So, to keep you and I company until then, the doggos are here! Here are 9 doggo games you can play right now. I know the title reads 10, but one of the games on this list is part of the games that are in the future. So technically it’s 9 playable games. However, seeing how scarce games about dogs are, I made an executive decision to include it.
Enough talk, let’s game!
PaRappa The Rapper™ Remastered
The player takes on the role of PaRappa, a paper-thin rapping dog, who is trying to win the heart of a flower-like girl named Sunny Funny. However, he is intimidated by the presence of Joe Chin, a rich, narcissistic dog who goes overboard with his attempts to impress Sunny. To impress Sunny Funny, PaRappa learns to fight at a kung-fu dojo and takes a driver’s education course to get his license. However, when he crashes his dad’s car, he must earn money at a flea market to pay for it.
When Sunny’s birthday comes up, PaRappa must get her a cake, but ends up ruining it after an encounter with Joe. He makes a new one by watching a cooking show and proceeds to eat a lot of it on the day. When spending some time alone with Sunny, he is suddenly overcome with the need to go to the bathroom and must rap against his former teachers to get to the front of the queue. Then one night, PaRappa is invited to Club Fun, and asks Sunny to go with him, to which she agrees. PaRappa then raps on stage with everybody, rapping solo at the end of the song and expressing his feelings for Sunny.
Far Cry 5
Okay, now technically this is not a “dog game”, but it allows you to bring a dog with you on your missions. It also allows you to pet the dog, Boomer. Run around with Boomer in Hope County, Montana, home to a fanatical doomsday cult known as Eden’s Gate. Stand up to cult leader Joseph Seed & his siblings, the Heralds, to spark the fires of resistance and liberate the besieged community.

Yes, yes, yes, I know. This is a sequel to Far Cry 5 and being a sequel, the ability to complete mission with a doggo is carried over. You and Timber the dog will dive into a transformed vibrant post-apocalyptic Hope County, Montana, 17 years after a global nuclear catastrophe. Lead the fight against the Highwaymen, as they seek to take over the last remaining resources.
Far Cry 6
Okay, I am done with Far Cry after this. This time you will get to play with Chorizo. What is Chorizo’s ability on the field is yet to be known, but speculations point to him being a medic. You can replenish your health with Chorizo by your side. Both of you will dive into the gritty world of a modern-day guerrilla revolution to liberate a nation from a dictator and his son.

Now, it is available for Android as well, however it is “an updated” version. According to the people in the comments, those that played the original version are not fond of this new version and want the old version, like that available for iOS. However, if you have never played this game, you can give the new version a try.
