Gaming has always been a primary source of entertainment not just for youngsters and teenagers, but also for adults. Everyone wants to chill and relax a bit and take some time off from their busy work schedule and that’s when certain popular and engaging games come into play. Over the years, the culture of gaming has developed to a great extent. From games for PC and PlayStations, we are now in the generation where online ‘multiplayer’ gaming experience is the way to go forward. 2021 has been a great year for the gaming sector as well. So, here’s a quick look at some of the best online games that you must try soonest in case you haven’t already.
Apex Legends: As the name itself suggests, this game is truly ‘legendary’ not just for the teenage generation but also for young adults. It is a battle royale-hero shooter game that was developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by giants of the gaming industry aka Electronic Arts. It was first released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in February 2019, and soon, it gained prominence in Nintendo Switch in March last year. The best part? You can play it for free and have an enriching time whenever you want.
Call Of Duty: Warzone: If you are someone who gets really excited whenever it comes to volatile war games involving big arms and tankers, this is the one that you need to play. The new feature where ‘warzone skin’ turns players partially invisible is also super cool and fun.
Counter Strike: If you are someone who’s extremely interested in having knowledge about arms and ammunition, you must have played Counter Strike at some point of time in your life. It is a series of multiplayer first-person shooter video games in which you get teams of terrorists battling it out in order to perpetrate an act of terror while counter-terrorists try to prevent it. The series began on Windows in 1999 with the release of the first game and ever since then, it has certainly come a long way making it one of the most popular in 2021. The fourth game of the series aka ‘Counter Strike: Global Offensive’ is our favourite multiplayer game pick in case you want to try your hands on this for the very first time.
Dota 2: Another one that has to make it in the list for the year 2021 is Dota 2. The game is a sequel to Defense of the Ancients, which was a community-created mod for Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. It is one of the most addictive multiplayer games and it gives you a nice ‘virtual reality’ experience of living in history and engaging in royal battles. In case you haven’t played it ever, download and start ASAP.
Fortnite Battle Royale: This was one of the most engaging and entertaining games of 2021 without any iota of doubt. It was first launched as a companion game to Fortnite: Save The World which was a cooperative survival game with several construction elements. The best part? It comes absolutely free of cost on iOS, Android, Xbox, and if you are someone who enjoys multiplayer experience, you better not skip this.
GTA Online: Ever since the time the brand ‘Grand Theft Auto’ was launched, it has only gotten bigger and better with every passing year. As far as GTA Online in particular is concerned, the old ‘multiplayer’ feature that grabbed attention all over again in the game is what makes it all the way more addictive. You can enjoy this game on your PlayStation and different Xbox 360 and other variants.
League Of Legends: If you are someone who’s too much into battle arena games and you also prefer high-quality graphics, this is a must in your list of installed games. As per reports in Wikipedia, the game was inspired from ‘Defence Of The Ancients’, a custom map for Warcraft 3 and it has certainly managed to tick all boxes right as far as online games are concerned. The game might have been released way back in 2009 but all thanks to regular updates and new features, it continued to be extremely relevant even in 2021.
Pokemon Go: Well, this game has been in the headlines for both right and wrong reasons. Pokemon has been an indispensable part of everyone’s childhood who were born in the 90s and no wonder, after many years, when a game like this came out, it became super addictive worldwide. Such was the addiction that we even heard reports of people having car accidents as they were apparently playing the game while driving. The game focuses a lot on the ‘augmented reality’ experience and it is still one of the coolest games to play if you want to simultaneously explore places around you.
PUBG: The name needs no introduction. This has been one of the most popular and fun online games in the last few years and the virtual reality experience has quite literally impressed one and all. With every passing year, new modes are launched along with regular updates in order to enhance the gaming experience. So here’s a shout out to all the ‘winners’, does anyone want ‘Chicken’ for dinner?
8 Ball Pool: Last but certainly not the least, we have 8 Ball Pool, which is by far the biggest and most engaging multiplayer pool game online. No complications regarding what the game is about. It is a plain simple ‘virtual reality’ experience of snooker/billiards and and for anyone who doesn’t have the luxury of playing real pool, this is certainly a good one to try out and get your basics sorted in terms of rules and procedures.
