Here are 6 amazing PC games you should not miss out playing in the new year, even if you are a console player:
League Of Legends
League of Legends is an online RTS (real-time strategy) and action RPG (role-playing game) hybrid that emphasizes physical prowess and brilliant strategy or tactics in combat. You can play any role in a match (tank, healer, jungle, or support) and three lanes (top, middle, bottom) that are appropriate for your role with over 140 characters to learn and master. League of Legends is one of the most well-known esports tournaments for professional players to participate in multiplayer. Try your luck and see if you can join the ranks of the world’s most popular athletes.
7 months in and Genshin Impact still sits as one of the top mobile games to date with 40 million players in 2020, and the numbers show no signs of stopping any time soon. This open-world game has an action-based battle system where you can cast your elemental powers and follow the deep, angsty lore of the world of Teyvat, and be emotionally attached to your favorite characters. Combat-wise, you have a character-switching system where different characters have different elements, where you can create elemental reactions. Just like how water and electricity combined can create shock, or in this game, Superconduct. There is also character building via artifacts, talents and level-ups to make your characters stronger, which is a part of the grinding for the iPhone Game of the Year.
It’s no wonder that Skyrim has been one of the most popular and played games since 2011, coming from the legendary Todd Howard (video game designer) himself who made his original merchandise, The Elder Scrolls series. You are Dragonborn, a character with the body of a mortal and a spirit of the dragon, a chosen one by the gods to conquer as a dragonslayer. The open-world action RPG (role-playing game) and its famous quote, “Fus Ro Dah!” circling across the internet allow you to immerse yourself in the beautiful world of Skyrim. You may interact with NPCs (non-player characters), which include characters of different races (Nord, Khajiit, Elf, etc. ), monsters, and other evils to combat, as well as solving puzzles in ruins, caves, studying deep lore, and visiting other unique locations in the world of the Elder Scrolls.
Don’t you hate it when you’re defeated by the game’s bosses and your screen is plastered with a mocking “Game Over”? Hades, on the other hand, is an outlier since the game expects you to struggle during the runs. What’s fascinating about this Greek mythology-themed game is the developers’ choice of theme, which means that failure will teach you how to be better in the future. You must buff up your character (Zagreus) and strategize your arms and abilities for particular enemies to battle out of Hades, even if you must do so repeatedly before you gain your fair share of victory. Hades is attempting to persuade the players to turn their loss into a source of motivation.
If you enjoy being around people and can’t bear being alone playing games, Among Us is the game for you! In this classic game of social deduction, players take on the roles of “Crewmate” or “Imposter,” defending or betraying their mates in a spaceship filled with killings, gaslighting, and eyewitnesses. Put your deductive or sabotage skills to the test with your buddies to recognize the Imposters amongst themselves, or kill Crewmates and talk your way out as quickly as you can before you declare victory.
Are you up for free tactical games? Valorant is a multiplayer, first-person shooter strategy game with constant praises for its mechanics, in-game economy, and balance between individual play and the need for teamwork. Invite your circle for a good time of chaos and laughs while you are all cooped out in your house.
