With the crisis that we are suffering from due to the global pandemic, people are encouraged to stay at home as much as possible.
That is why it is even more appealing to either build your own gaming PC or purchase a game console. But of course, you will still need some games to play as well.
I’ve scoured the internet to find out the best games that you can play amid the pandemic. I only get data from gaming reviews sites so you know that you get topnotch information.
Without further ado, here are the best games of 2020 so far:
- DOOM Eternal
This is by far the best game that was released in early 2020. DOOM Eternal has been consistently recommended by video game reviews and rightfully so.
While DOOM 2016 is really good on its own, it lacked a lot of story elements that people love. That changed in the latest installment in the franchise.
The game is not only full of lore, but it also retained some aspects that we love about the 2016 reboot: More, in-your-face action unlike any other.
- Call of Duty: Warzone
The game is just a battle royale spinoff of the newly released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. While CoD games have been amazing from a PVP standpoint, this one takes it up a notch.
Fast-paced, thrilling, electric- three words that I would use to describe this amazing spinoff. Its adrenaline-pumping action ensures that you’ll always be on your toes to kill the enemy.
Even though there is no lore in this game, you have the original modern warfare to get you covered.
- Half-life: Alyx
A lot of fans were clamoring for a new Half-life game and although we didn’t get the 3rd installment in the franchise, what we got was something better.
Half-life: Alyx is actually a virtual reality game that was released by Valve as a means of quenching our thirst for a new installment.
It is a prequel story that talks about the struggles of Alyx Vance in fighting against the alien invaders.
Although you need a capable PC to run this game, you will not be disappointed.
- Final Fantasy VII Remake
One of the best RPG games released in 1997, Final Fantasy VII was a masterpiece- both from a story and gameplay perspective. Websites that write PS4 game reviews can collectively say that this one is going to be another interesting installment of the classic.
Square Enix wanted to bring the amazing game back to life and they have delivered on that promise.
The Final Fantasy VII Remake is great. It has a new and more exciting battle system, amazing graphics, and its story is almost similar to the original one (with some minor changes here and there).
This game is released on consoles and will soon be released on the PC, but if you ask me, I would grab one right now. It is really that good.
- Animal Crossing: New Horizons
This cute game is something that both kids and adults will surely love. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is not only a huge success but it has also become a cultural phenomenon- which is something rare in modern games.
People that love to explore and discover new things will definitely love ‘New Horizons’. In fact, both the story elements and the actual game are just too amazing to put into words. You just have to try it out for yourself.
- Resident Evil 3 Remake
The original Resident Evil 3 was pretty good. It’s got the story down really well, though a lot of fans clamor for an installment with better controls. The good thing is that Capcom listened.
The Resident Evil 3 Remake is a fitting one simply because it mostly retained its lore but the game mechanics and controls have vastly been improved.
If you want to beat Nemesis’ ass once again, you can do so in HD.
- Gears Tactics
Who would have thought that slowing down a Gears of War game and turning it into a turn-based classic makes it more appealing to a lot of people?
Gears Tactics still provides a really fun experience, but do not expect to bring out your machine gun and shoot at aliens like there’s no tomorrow.
Instead, you are going to fight the alien invaders with the use of strategy and that is what this game provides.
People who miss that kind of action will be treated with delight with this one.
