5 GAMES TO PLAY WHILE YOU’RE STUCK INSIDE
About This Event
Whether you’re sick, the weather is awful, or you’re practicing a bit of social distancing, there are times when we all find ourselves holed up at home and in need of entertainment. It’s times like this when we turn to the game to transport us to faraway lands, introduce us to dashing heroes, and keep us smiling with thrilling adventures.
Now is a great time to get through your backlog and get to those games you’ve been meaning to play forever. And if you need some new games, remember you can still order online at GAME.co.uk and get the latest titles delivered directly to your door. Stay safe, and game on.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons
When times get tough, you can always count on your loyal villagers to rally around you. In New Horizons you can escape to a tropical paradise and build your dream getaway complete with all your favorite animal chums. If you’re already on the New Horizons hype train, test your knowledge with six things you (probably) didn’t know about Animal Crossing.
Jackbox Party Pack series
One of the best ways to keep your spirits up when you’re stuck at home is to play multiplayer games with friends and family. Competitive multiplayer games like Fortnite and Overwatch are brilliant to let off steam, but party games can be even better for having a laugh with your pals, whether they are gamers or not. The Jackbox series has a huge variety of irreverent games including the quiz game You Don’t Know Jack, the brilliant lie-a-thon Fibbage, Pictionary-inspired Drawful and many, many more. Whether played online or locally, this series has something for everyone.
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age
When you’ve got a lot of time on your hands, roleplaying games are a brilliant way to lose yourself in a sprawling narrative. Fantastic fantasy adventures like The Witcher III and Dragon Age: Inquisition are great options, but what sets Dragon Quest apart is its charm and vibrant art style. This colourful adventure is perfect to raise your spirits, and best of all, it will keep you occupied for literally hundreds of hours. If this game has piqued your interest, you can also pick up Dragon Quest XI S: Definitive Edition on Nintendo Switch!
Persona 5 Royal
If you want something (a little) more down-to-earth, why not dip your toe into the world of Persona? Join up with the Phantom Thieves and go on some wild supernatural adventures to bring the corrupt in society to justice. When you’re not exploring the game’s many dungeons you can take in the sights and sounds of Tokyo as you build up your Social Links with a cast of effortlessly likeable companions. If you’ve already played the original game and want more, here are all the changes coming to Persona 5 Royal.
Death Stranding’s post-apocalyptic vision of America might not immediately fill everyone with warm and fuzzy feelings, but the latest venture from the creator of Metal Gear Solid is actually an excellent way of exploring the great outdoors from the comfort of your home. As a courier, you’re tasked with overcoming the elements to deliver essential goods (including, but not limited to, PlayStations and pizza) to citizens sheltered around the country. While initially dark, Death Stranding conveys a message of hope in the face of adversity and the enduring power of human connection.
