Gambling has always been a main source of entertainment not only for young people and teenagers, but also for adults. Everyone wants to kick back and relax a bit and take some time out of their busy work schedule and that’s when some popular and engaging games come in. Over the years, gaming culture has considerably developed. From games to PCs and PlayStations, we are now in the generation where online “multiplayer” gaming experience is the way to go. 2021 has also been a great year for the gaming industry. So, here’s a quick rundown of some of the best online games you need to try out ASAP in case you haven’t already.
Apex Legends: As the name suggests, this game is truly “legendary” not only for the teenage generation but also for young adults. It is a battle royale hero shooter which was developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by gaming industry giants aka Electronic Arts. It was first released on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in February 2019, and soon it rose to prominence on Nintendo Switch in March last year. The best part? You can play it for free and have a rewarding time whenever you want.
To call Duty: War Zone: If you’re someone who really gets excited when it comes to volatile war games involving big guns and tankers, this is the one you need to play. The new feature where the “warzone skin” makes players partially invisible is also super cool and fun.
Counter-Strike: If you are someone who is extremely interested in having knowledge about weapons and ammunition, you must have played Counter Strike at some point in your life. It is a series of multiplayer first-person shooter video games in which you get teams of terrorists who fight to carry out an act of terror while counter-terrorists try to prevent it. The series started on Windows in 1999 with the release of the first game and since then it has certainly come a long way to make it one of the most popular in 2021. The fourth game in the series aka “Counter Strike: Global Offensive ” is our favorite multiplayer game choice in case you want to try it for the very first time.
Dota 2Another must-have for 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 the story and participating in battle royales. If you’ve never played it, download and get started as soon as possible.
Fortnite Battle Royale: It was undoubtedly one of the most engaging and entertaining games of 2021. It was first launched as a companion game to Fortnite: Save The World which was a cooperative survival game with multiple elements of construction. The best part? It is absolutely free on iOS, Android, Xbox, and if you are someone who loves multiplayer experience, you better not ignore that.
GTA online: Since the launch of the “Grand Theft Auto” brand, it has only grown and improved from year to year. When it comes to GTA Online in particular, the old “multiplayer” feature that has caught on in the game again is what makes it even 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 loves battle arena games too much and also prefer high quality graphics, this is a must in your list of installed games. According to Wikipedia reports, the game was inspired by “Defence Of The Ancients”, a custom map for Warcraft 3 and it certainly managed to tick all the boxes when it comes to online gaming. The game may have been released in 2009, but thanks to regular updates and new features, it has remained extremely relevant even in 2021.
Pokemon Go: Well, this game made headlines for good and bad reasons. Pokemon was a staple of childhood for anyone born in the 90s and it’s no wonder that after many years when a game like this came out it became super addictive in the whole world. The addiction was such that we even heard of people having had car accidents because they apparently played the game while driving. The game focuses a lot on the “augmented reality” experience and it’s still one of the coolest games to play if you want to simultaneously explore places around you.
PUBG: The name does not need to be introduced. It has been one of the most popular and fun online games in recent years and the virtual reality experience has literally blown everyone away. Every year new modes are released along with regular updates to enhance the gaming experience. So here’s a shout out to all the “winners”, does anyone want some “chicken” for dinner?
8 ball pool: Last but not least, we have 8 Ball Pool, which is by far the biggest and most engaging online multiplayer pool game. No complications regarding the subject of the game. This is a simple ‘virtual reality’ snooker/billiards experience and for anyone who doesn’t have the luxury of playing real pool this is definitely a great experience trying and sorting out your basics in terms of rules and procedures.
