We did some research and found the 8 most popular video games to play during the quarantine. We're all stuck at home that's why everyone is escaping to the virtual worlds where we are not only free to go out and explore but your biggest worry would be a sniper or a zombie 🧟♂️ and not a Coronavirus. Check out our list below and let us know which one's your favorite!
OUTER WILDS- We know quarantine life is starting to feel like a real-life Groundhog Day experience and ironically, we are recommending a game quite similar to the movie with quite a few fun perks. As a curious little alien, you are tasked to explore the universe with your alien buddies but then you get a mere 22 minutes before the solar system explodes and you're back to square one. Your mission now is to find out why and stop it from happening. You’ll learn from each exploration and get quicker and better each time until you gather enough clues and pieces to stop the loop.

MINECRAFT- What’s the best way to kill time than tapping into your creative juices. Create to your heart’s delight in this (almost) infinite virtual world. We got days or weeks to spare, see if you can recreate your own favorite amusement park or your next dream travel destination. The most recent Nether update got people excited, look out for the zombie pigman though!
ROCKET LEAGUE- This genius game combines what most men equate to fun. If you like fast cars, soccer and rockets then we got the thing just for you. Get goofy with casual game mode or get competitive with your friends, it's up to you. There’s no limit to the game as new content is always being released.

VALORANT- Imagine Counter-Strike and Overwatch combined and you have Valorant. From the same developer of League of Legends although the official release will be Summer of 2020, it remains one of the most-watched games on Twitch. This is a great game to master your strategy tactics with your friends online. Beta version was released on April 7.

DOOM ETERNAL- If you are into mythology and a fan of the previous Doom franchise then this one’s for you. It’s a fast-paced shooting game set in no less than Hell itself. It’s Hell’s army against you in this first-person shooter game. If you are into challenges, the difficulty setting that deletes your save file when you die will be a treat. Halo fans are hooked by this recent release so blow up zombies demons to your heart's delight!

BATTLE ROYALES - They are popular for a reason, looking for some online banter with friends or strangers from all over. We’ve heard Call of Duty’s Warzone has had 50 million downloads since it’s release last March. What’s your favorite skin in Fortnight? We can’t get enough of the Deadpool skin.
DOTA 2 OR League of Legends: If you are into MOBA or Multiplayer Online Battle arena then these are the top games for you. League of Legends reportedly has 90 million monthly players as of 2019. An intense match with your crew can definitely distract you from the pandemic outdoors.
RED DEAD REDEMPTION- If you miss the great outdoors then this classic favorite has the best “outdoor” graphics. Personally, the visuals in this game are unmatched. Plus, if you miss social interactions- you can even go on a romantic date before getting yourself caught in a good old western shootout in Annesburg NH.
ANIMAL CROSSING- Enough with the violence, now for something wholesome and nothing is more wholesome than Animal Crossing: New Horizon. Thanks to the current lockdown, to no one’s surprise, it has turned into quite the sensation even celebrities like Elijah Wood visited a fan’s island after she tweeted him about her Turnip Prices.
