Games have always been popular in one form or another. Today’s games are better than ever, thanks to technological advancements. Game developers continue to outdo themselves, releasing innovative and long-awaited games. If you are waiting for a game release at the minute, you are likely to feel a little impatient. Luckily, there are a few great games you can play to pass the time while you wait. Let’s take a look.
The Last of Us
Unless you have been living under a rock for the last few months, you will likely have heard of The Last of Us, which was recently adapted into a television series. If you didn’t know, though, it was actually a game first. Sony released it in 2013, and it follows the protagonist Joel as he does his best to survive and navigate a post-apocalyptic America.
Minecraft was incredibly popular throughout the 2010s; however, it has seen a resurgence in the last couple of years with renewed interest from players. The different modes allow you to customise gameplay, choose between creative or survival mode, and play with up to eight of your friends.
Fortnite really had a moment in the cultural zeitgeist a few years ago, seeing huge success. It might not be as popular as it once was, but the game still manages to draw in millions of players every day. It is a family-friendly game which follows a battle royale shooter format. The developers continue to update the game with frequent changes to the map and the graphics. Make sure that you check out the game’s download options on your device to find out how much space it may take.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Animal Crossing has long since been popular; however, its new reimagining for its release on the Nintendo Switch has seen a huge resurgence in interest. This game is perfect for those that like to relax and unwind by playing games. The game has no stakes. You can come and go as you please, completing tasks, visiting friends and cultivating the town as you see fit.
Red Dead Redemption
Red Dead Redemption and Red Dead Redemption 2 are top-rated games. In fact, the sequel was an anticipated game release which has a certain level of irony if you were to play it while waiting for the release of other games. As the name suggests, redemption is the main theme of the games. The characters are well-developed, and the world is vivid. You can play on a computer or via a console, depending on your preferences and setup.
Without knowing more about you and your preferences, it is a tricky task to recommend games to you, which is why we have tried to hit several different demographics in the game recommendations above. Hopefully, there will be a game listed up there that will appeal to you and your preferences. From this list, you should be able to pick one to tide you over until the latest new release is ready to play.
