One of the best ways to pass the time and kill boredom is by playing games. When we say games, it’s not just any traditional board games we’re talking about, but video games and the like. Now that we’re in lockdown thanks to this awful virus, we have lots of time to get back to our games. Thankfully, even before the lockdown and quarantine began, we were blessed with a ton of games to keep boredom from getting to us.
Now before we get into what games you should play, what makes a game that good? First off, gameplay should always be a must. Second, the story should also make sense. After all, a game is like a movie where you get to participate in. Who would want to get into a movie that’s dull and without direction?
Graphics and sound aren’t really necessary, but they are essential factors that help to elevate that experience. With that said, here are the best games you can play on your PC right now.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
If you’re a fan of the Souls series games like Bloodborne and Dark Souls, then Sekiro is for you. One thing that every game in the series has with Sekiro is its absurd difficulty. Take note; these games are not for the faint of heart, and Sekiro isn’t an exception.

In Sekiro, you take control of a bodyguard slash(pun intended) samurai named Wolf, who is on a mission to avenge the abduction of his lord. Perhaps one of the most noticeable things about Wolf is that he is an amputee.
Armed with a shinobi prosthetic, you complete missions and tasks in the game. The game is full of impressive sights and sounds all put there to keep you distracted from the menacing bosses in the game. If you’re not careful, even lower enemies can also kill you quickly.
What separates Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice from most Souls games is that you can revive in the game twice. Dying a lot can also hurt your playthrough, so be careful! The innovative gameplay and captivating story make Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, one of the best games to play on pc, also earning it several GOTY or game of the year awards.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Rockstar Games keep the dice rolling with the sequel to their PS3 masterpiece, Red Dead Redemption with Red Dead Redemption 2. Since Red Dead Redemption 2 was made available on the PC, PC users will share the experience and fun that console gamers have always had through the years.
Red Dead Redemption 2 happens in a wild, wild, west setting in the early years of America. You control Arthur Morgan, a gruff bandit in Dutch’s gang. Arthur can be a bit rough at times, but he’s one of the best characters that you can have fun with. If you’ve done a bit of digging, you’ll find that Arthur Morgan doesn’t exist in the previous game.
Although it may be odd, Rockstar Games has done an awesome job in inserting Arthur Morgan in the game’s story. In fact, Red Dead Redemption 2 isn’t a sequel, it’s more of a prequel in terms of the story.
The game has a lot of realism in it, such as the absence of fast travel points. Although some view it as a hindrance, game developers intentionally “minimized” fast travel options to let gamers see the breathtaking environment they’re in. When it comes to graphics, sound, gameplay, and everyday fun, Red Dead Redemption 2 takes the cake.
Outer Worlds is the perfect amalgamation or the product of mixing in space, science fiction, shooters, and a bit of RPG style gameplay together. The game is incredibly immersive with several endings depending on your actions.
You have full customization options with your character, including the looks and statistics. Pay close attention to your stats as it will heavily influence your style of playing. Want to resolve a matter peacefully instead of shooting everyone dead? Raise your charm statistic. Want to be a sniper and deal massive critical damage to opponents? Raise your perception.
There are three primary endings, but depending on your actions, your companions can also have their own separate conclusions, of which number to at least 20. Make sure you leave no stone unturned as Outer Worlds is a fun and awesome game to play!
