Nowadays, the hype around video games is real. If you’ve been on the internet at all lately, you’ve heard about at least one of these popular games. Gaming has become more of a phenomenon as of late and almost taken over the internet. With live-streaming services like Twitch and YouTube, you have unlimited access to even watch other people play live! But one important question remains: why are people so obsessed with gaming now? The answer to that is very simple: it’s fun! Playing video games is a great way to kill some time when you need to, or even blow off some steam after a hard day at the office. Whether you want to watch or play, we’ve gathered the five best games to try right now!
An online video game, Fortnite has taken the internet by storm in the past couple of years. It’s a multiplayer game with several different game versions you can choose from. The most popular version is, of course, Battle Royale. It’s a free-to-play battle royale game where 100 players fight in order to be the last one standing. You as a player get to choose your own fun character and get creative with it. This epic game is also available as an app to play on your phone!
Similar to Fortnite, PlayrUnknown’s Battlegrounds, aka PUBG, is an online multiplayer battle royale game. Up to 100 players parachute onto an island, scavenge for weapons and equipment and kill others while avoiding getting killed themselves. Again, the last person standing wins. As opposed to Fortnite, PUBG is a bit more serious in tone and design. Again, it has a mobile version as well.
Grand Theft Auto V
This is one of the best-selling games of all time, believe it or not. Grand Theft Auto is a game where you as a player have a mission to do just as the title suggests: steal cars. Of course, there have been different versions over the years and they only get better with time.
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
The Legend of Zelda is an open-world, first-person shooter game. It’s the perfect adventure game with countless ways to explore and make your way through this world.
A sandbox video game, Minecraft is the single best-selling video game of all time. By late 2019, it sold over 180 million copies across all platforms. In the game, players explore a blocky, pixelated 3D world and can discover and extract raw materials, craft tools, build structures or earthworks, and can even fight computer-controlled foes. In fact, they can also cooperate or compete against other players in the same world.
