Back in the day, when people hear the word ‘budget’, they usually think about a product that has poor build quality and bad features, but that is actually not the case in this day and age.
You could be getting a budget smartphone and still have the right feature set that will help it last for more than two years.
If you are on the market for the best affordable smartphones this August, then you are in the right article. I will go over some of them that are surely great for their price.
So, without further ado, let’s get on with it!
Best Affordable Smartphones This August
As mentioned earlier, budget smartphones have come a long way. Back then, you get cheap plastic slabs that will surely break once it is dropped but nowadays, you get a premium build with the right specs and features.
The first budget phone on this list is none other than the Samsung Galaxy A51. It has big shoes to fill because the previous A50 is highly praised by the community. Does the A51 live up to the hype? Definitely!
Instead of a notch, the A51 now has a hole-punch selfie camera at the top-middle portion of the device to provide you with more screen real estate.
What’s more, the specs are no slouch at all. You get the Exynos 9611 octa-core chipset, the Mali-G72 MP3 GPU, and 6GB of RAM. This performance package can definitely run even the most graphically demanding games, albeit at medium to high settings only.
Samsung did not pull any punches with this budget smartphone as it has equipped it with four camera sensors at the back. You get a 48-megapixel primary sensor, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens, a 5-megapixel depth sensor, and a 5-megapixel macro lens as well.
Overall, the images are crisp and vibrant, though bear in mind that low-light photography is not its strongest suit.
You also get to choose from a variety of different colors to suit your style.
All in all, the Samsung Galaxy A51 is one of the best affordable smartphones that you can buy this August.
TCL may be a relatively new contender in the smartphone market, but the company has certainly made a name for itself by providing quality budget options to consumers.
The previously reviewed TCL 10 Pro is lauded to be one of the best budget smartphones under $500 and the TCL 10L is definitely a worthy contender.
It has basically the same design language, albeit its build quality is not up to par with the Pro version. Instead of metal parts, this phone is equipped with polycarbonate material, which still gives it a durable look and feel.
I am glad that this smartphone comes with a USB Type-C connector so that you can easily use a quick charger to top this device up. Not to mention that data transfer speeds will be much faster than your traditional micro-USB connection.
I am also happy to say that the TCL 10L also has a headphone jack, so audiophiles that want to use their own audio solution can do so without any problems.
Although you are not getting an OLED display at this price, you still get a modest 6.53-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 which is quite considerable from a media consumption standpoint.
In terms of specs, this is no slouch either. You get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset with the Adreno 610 GPU, 6GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. It is capped off with a 4,000 mAh battery so this phone should last an entire day on a single charge.
I am quite pleased with what you are getting here. Sure, the screen leaves much to be desired, but everything else is quite good that I am surprised that this phone is offered at only $250.
Motorola has been consistent with its budget offerings that are considered to be bangs-for-the-buck and the Moto G8+ is certainly a part of that.
This budget smartphone ticks all of the right boxes. It has a durable plastic build, a vibrant 6.3-inch IPS display (1080p resolution, 19:9 aspect ratio), fingerprint sensor, microSD card slot (hybrid), and it has a considerable performance package.
Speaking of performance, the Moto G8+ is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset, Adreno 610 GPU, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. It is a good mid-range performer and you can play any Android games that you want, although you will have to tinker with the settings to get the most out of this device.
Even though it does have a triple camera array at the back, the pictures that it can produce leaves much to be desired. It is passable, though it is not something as punchy as the Samsung phone above.
Still, the phone does have a 4,000 mAh battery which should be enough for use in an entire day without needing to reach for the charger.
4.Realme 6 Pro
Priced at just $350, you get a 6.6-inch IPS LCD display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection. But, the main feature here is its ability to be set at 90Hz screen refresh rate.
It is pretty hard to discern on video simply because Youtube tends to clock things at a maximum of just 60Hz, but once you use it in real life, it is hard to go back to the default refresh rate.
The 90Hz display just makes this phone a great mid-range gaming phone. It does have a considerable performance package because you will be getting the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset, along with the Adreno 618 GPU, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage.
You can play PUBG and Fortnite with this thing at high to ultra settings with more than ample frame rates and the others can be played at a smooth 90Hz (if they are not graphically intensive).
It is worth noting, though, that at the time of writing, there are still some games that cannot support the higher refresh rate, although I am sure that they will be updated to suit the new standard in the near future.
Even if this phone is made of plastic, it does have a premium finish to it so you can still flaunt this device regardless of the build quality.
5.Google Pixel 3A
With the advent of the Google Pixel 4a soon, the price of the 3a has dropped to just $350 which I think is a steal.
If you want a mid-range smartphone that is great for photography, then look no further than this phone right here: The Google Pixel 3A.
It is packed with the Snapdragon 670 chipset with just a modest 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It only has a 5.6-inch display, though it is quite vibrant which makes this a good media consumption device.
But, its best feature is the camera- not only the hardware but also the software as well. Both work in tandem to provide the best quality images in an affordable smartphone package.
Seriously, if you intend to use your phone as a portable camera, then there is no doubt that the Google Pixel 3a is a worthy purchase.
6.Sony Xperia 10 II
Before I begin, this is a different smartphone and should not be confused with the Sony Xperia 1 II, which is a flagship device.
Anyway, the Sony Xperia 10 II is your ticket to a wide-screen media consumption device at a relatively affordable price.
For just $399, you get a phone with a 6-inch OLED display with an aspect ratio of 21:9. This is pretty much a rarity at this price point and I am happy that Sony is able to go head-to-head with other smartphones in the budget category.
Because of the display panel used and also with the amazingly stretched aspect ratio, using this purely as a media consumption device is a good decision. The picture quality is superb and you get a lot of screen real estate for the price.
The image quality that is produced by its triple camera setup is okay. It is quite balanced and does provide you with amazing images, albeit only in well-lit conditions. Low-light photography is out of the question since the pictures that are produced are quite grainy and not suitable for use.
You also get modest performance across the board as well. It comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage (which is expandable via microSD card up to 512GB).
Its battery life is also quite decent. It is packed with a 3,600 mAh battery which is okay but you do get an 18-watt fast charger in the box as well.
I am happy that Sony has created both a flagship product and an affordable smartphone in 2020 and both of them are worthy options to consider when you are going to buy a phone this August.
7.Huawei Nova 5T
Some people are reluctant to get Huawei phones due to the US blacklist of the company, but do not worry as this next phone was produced just before the blacklist kicked into high gear.
The Huawei Nova 5T is one of the last smartphones from Huawei that still uses Google mobile services. So, getting this even when you are in the United States is okay, especially if you use Google’s services religiously.
Anyway, what’s so special about this phone? Well, it is packed with the company’s high-end chipset in the form of the Kirin 980, has 6GB of RAM, and it is punctuated by a hefty 128GB of internal storage.
But, what makes Huawei phones interesting is not in the performance department but its phones’ camera quality and it definitely shows with this one.
Whether you intend to whip out your phone for vlogging or perhaps use the device to take images of birds and interesting landmarks, the Huawei Nova 5T can certainly deliver on that front.
It produces stunning photos and videos and it doesn’t lag at all when changing to different camera modes.
The 48-megapixel shooter, although uses pixel binning technology to achieve that, still produces crisp images nonetheless.
I am also pleasantly surprised by its low-light photography performance which makes this device one of the best camera phones in the budget category.
8.Motorola One Hyper
Another Motorola phone on this list but certainly deserves its spot is the Motorola One Hyper. It has an amazing screen, long battery life, a minimalist software, and overall good camera quality.
Its performance package might not appeal to you, but it does have considerable specs regardless. It is packed with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage.
The 6.5-inch LCD display has a resolution of 2340 x 1080. I am pleasantly surprised with the quality of the screen despite it being just an IPS panel, it does provide you with a great viewing experience.
Its cameras are also quite good for the price. It has a 64-megapixel main shooter at the back that is accentuated with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor. It has a 32-megapixel motorized pop-up camera that allows for a bigger screen real estate.
Overall picture and video quality are great for the price. The images that you can get are stunning and vibrant and although it is not great in dimly-lit environments, it is considerable for the price.
The battery life is also great as well. I don’t know what Motorola has done here but its optimizations just take advantage of the device’s 4,000 mAh battery to its fullest extent. If you need a quick top-up, you get a fast 45-watt charger in the box as well.
I would highly recommend this phone if you are tight on the money and is certainly a worthy consideration when you are buying one in August.
OnePlus was once a company that was hailed for producing flagship killers or devices that are priced just right with top-of-the-line specs.
With the advent of the OnePlus 8 phones, the company has turned into one that is producing actual flagship devices. But, its upcoming phone is a reminder of its roots. I am talking about the OnePlus Nord.
This phone will be released in July so it should be available in all markets come August 2020.
There is a lot to love about this thing. The first notable feature is its 6 different cameras; 4 of which you can find at the back and two at the front.
Although I haven’t tested the device yet, the leaks of the image quality of this thing are quite amazing. Pictures are punchy and it can even beat some of the flagship phones on the market in terms of overall camera performance.
This device also comes with a 6.44-inch AMOLED display that can be clocked to a 90Hz screen refresh rate. Not only does it provide a smooth performance but it is also amazing from a media consumption standpoint as well.
The specs of this thing are no slouch at all. It is packed with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset that is meant for gaming, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. Spending $20 more will get you 256GB of internal storage and 12GB of RAM, but the previous configuration should be adequate for most users.
Capping things off is its 4,115 mAh battery and the company’s infamous Warp Charger 2.0 which is a 30-watt charging block is included in the box as well.
OnePlus Nord is showing to be quite an appealing option for people that want to buy a smartphone very soon.
The Best Xbox One Games in 2020- Get Primed Before the New Console Arrives
I know, Microsoft is set to release its new Xbox Series X game console sometime in the Holidays but this doesn’t mean that you have to wait a couple of months just to enjoy your time because there are a lot of titles that you can play right now.
The Xbox game console has plenty of memorable games and today, I am going to be talking about the best Xbox One games in 2020. Get primed now before the new console arrives this Fall.
Best Xbox One Games 2020
Although this game starts weird at first, Control is actually pretty fun and exciting. You will be taking control of Jesse Faden, a director of the Federal Bureau of Control and your mission is to kill the Hiss enemies that are found in the very institution you are working for.
What makes this game weird is that you are actually going against the ‘paranatural’ creatures and it is only going to get weirder from there.
As the main character, you will actually have natural abilities to help combat the special enemies. These are in the form of mind control, telekinesis, and everything in between. And oh, you will also have the ability to wield one of the coolest guns in video game history as it can either morph into a machine gun, a shotgun, or even a handgun if need be.
Sure, the game is weird, but it is something that you have to play for yourself in order to understand why this is one of the best out there.
Hailed as one of the best Xbox One games ever, the ‘Gears’ series is now on its 5th installment and this game allows you to unravel Kait Diaz’s story as she finds out more of his lineage and her very existence.
This game has one of the most unique game mechanics in that it actually feels like an entirely new take on the 3rd-person shooter genre.
Instead of rushing to your enemies guns blazing, you have the option to duck and take cover as you time perfectly to kill the enemies without taking a hit.
What’s more, this open-world title allows you to make use of fun vehicles that can take you from point A to point B in a short amount of time.
People that want to play with or against other players will love the multiplayer content that is found on this title.
Players who have their own Xbox One S or the original Xbox One will surely love this game without a doubt.
Because of Fortnite’s massive success, a lot of game developers want to craft their own take on the Battle Royale genre. Thus, Apex Legends was born.
If you’ve had your Xbox One game console for quite some time and have played numerous titles over the years, you might find that some of the game’s elements are familiar. Well, that is because Apex Legends was developed by Respawn Entertainment- the same company that created Titanfall.
Unlike PUBG and Fortnite, Apex Legends is a bit unique in that each character has their own unique abilities- much like Overwatch.
While this game can be acquired for free, there are some microtransactions involved inside the realm as well.
4.Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
You might have heard of this game before and that’s because a lot of people are complaining about its difficulty. Well, it should come as no surprise seeing that this game was also developed by the makers of the infamous Dark Souls franchise.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice may have taken some inspiration from Bloodborne and Dark Souls titles but it actually has its own unique tricks.
In this game, you will have the ability to resurrect yourself, as well as a new posture system that allows you to make use of new skills and abilities.
Now, if you are interested to try this one, let me just caution you that this game is hard. In fact, I would go on to say that it is insanely hard- a staple in most of From Software’s game stack.
5.Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Who doesn’t love Star Wars? If you are a massive fan of the franchise, then you will be happy to know that there is a relatively new game that you should definitely check out.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is one of the more refreshing games in the series thanks, in part, by its game mechanics, as well as the ability to become a Jedi or a Sith.
It draws inspiration from other triple A games in that you have a pretty good combat system, a set of good puzzles for you to solve, and exploration like those other open-world titles.
While you may not like the microtransactions in this game, you need not spend any more money to enjoy the title for what it is. Of course, you will have to consider spending your hard-earned money if there are any DLCs that are going to be released in the near future.
Fans of the Diablo franchise are probably clamoring for a similar game on the Xbox One console. Thankfully, there is one that you could try!
Darksiders Genesis is an isometric hack-and-slash with some shooter elements depending on the character that you wish to play.
People who have played Darksiders games before might be surprised that some of the mechanics have changed- particularly that you are playing mission-style story missions now. Still, this is still a pretty fun game with a huge replay value.
If you want challenging games much like Dark Souls and Bloodborne, then this next one will be quite appealing to you.
Ashen borrows some elements from the aforementioned games but it does have a unique way of portraying the story because instead of amazing 3D graphics, you are greeted with a watercolor-style art that is a breath of fresh air.
The graphics are interesting because you actually do not see any faces. It is as if you are in the situation fighting against hordes of enemies.
If you want an interesting take on a hack-and-slash game, Ashen is definitely worth checking out.
8.Dragon Age: Inquisition
People that want to play open-world games should certainly check out Dragon Age: Inquisition. Considered as the best title in the franchise yet, you can easily spend more than 200 hours here thanks to its numerous quests, characters, and abilities to choose from.
The game is unique in that it allows you to take control of your other three companions so that you can use any of your abilities without taking a hit. What’s more, this game will surely test your mettle when it comes to developing strategies because there are times where the going gets really tough.
Thanks to the use of the Unreal Engine, you will be greeted with amazing visuals. If you want more, you can play this game on your PC. Just make sure to equip it with the best graphics cards to get the full effect.
9.Halo 5: Guardians
Fans of the Halo franchise rejoice! Halo 5: Guardians is quite an exciting game and one that you should definitely not play alone. More on this in a bit.
Instead of using the iconic Master Chief, you will be playing as Spartan Locke. You will be going across different planets and fans of the game will definitely want to play this one as a familiar character is taking on a very different approach.
As is to be expected in the Halo franchise, this game has some jaw-dropping visuals. It is safe to say that it has pretty good graphics and that it is one of the better titles on the game console just for its visuals.
Although you can play the story missions solo, where Halo 5 shines is in its multiplayer content. Go with your buddies as you fight against hordes of different enemies. But of course, you have the option of going against other players as well.
If you are playing this game with your buddies, it is best that you get a pretty good 4K TV to truly grasp what this thing has to offer.
10.Ori and the Will of the Wisps
Platform games need not be overly complicated. In fact, people can just sit back, relax, and have some challenging moments here and there.
Well, Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a fitting sequel to the highly successful, Ori and the Blind Forest. The game is quite similar to its predecessor, albeit it has some exciting new stuff for people to use and explore.
What I really love about this game is the fact that the visuals are really on full display and the fact that the soundtrack is just so captivating.
Although this game takes some time to get better, the story is quite touching and I highly encourage that you try this one if you love its predecessor.
So there you have it, these are all of the best Xbox games in 2020. You can either purchase them one by one or you can buy them at discounted prices if you have the Xbox One game pass.
Even though the new game console from the company is set to release in the coming months, the games mentioned above are still worth playing even to this day.
The Best PS4 Games of 2020- Experience the Best that the Console Has to Offer
Playstation 5 is just around the corner but it doesn’t mean that you cannot enjoy Sony’s Playstation 4 console. The PS4 has released some of the most iconic games ever made.
In this article, I will go over the best ps4 games of 2020 but I will also include some classic games just to prep you for what’s to come in the next-generation console.
So, without further ado, here are the best titles on the PS4:
Best Playstation 4 Games
1.Final Fantasy 15
People who have played the first-generation Playstation console would be familiar with the first game on this list.
The Final Fantasy franchise has amassed a loyal following and its 15th installment in the series is a refreshing one.
You see, the previous FF title was an MMORPG and FFXIII has got fans divided over whether or not Square Enix still has the penchant for creating amazing games with memorable storylines.
Well, I am happy to say that the latest installment in the series definitely has reignited the fans’ love for the franchise.
In this game, you will be embarking on a journey with Noctis and his 3 trusty bodyguards as you fight against monsters- as is customary with the title.
I love the fact that Square Enix meld both great storytelling with impeccable graphics as this game truly delivers.
Starring Norman Reedus from the infamous The Walking Dead franchise, Death Stranding is a peculiar game but it doesn’t mean it’s bad. In fact, I would go on to say that it is one of the more interesting games on the platform.
The game is set in a post-apocalyptic world and you will be taking control of Sam Bridges. The premise of the game is to deliver supplies to the survivors and you happen to be learning new abilities along the way.
What’s grappling here is that the story actually lets you rethink your life choices thus far and how you will make decisions in the future. Yes, it’s that deep.
More importantly, it is actually quite fun though you will have to be spending hours into the game to truly notice that it is.
Still, I would encourage you to give this a try.
3.Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019)
The Call of Duty franchise has some of the best games in existence while there are also those that people really did not like at all.
In the previous titles, it was too sci-fi that the game has veered away from what it was supposed to be. Thankfully, Activision went back to its roots and created a game that donned the ‘boots on the ground’ approach.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare should not be confused with the game of the same name as this is the 2019 edition.
It still talks about Captain Price but this game takes you to his earlier years. While there are some inconsistencies when it comes to a storytelling standpoint, the gameplay is actually pretty intense and exciting from beginning to end.
The game has had a lot of new updates. In fact, you will need a hefty SSD capacity if you want to install this game because it will really eat up your storage space.
People who love the Dark Souls series will definitely love this next one. Bloodborne is not, by all means, a new game, but it certainly still has a massive loyal following even to this day.
This is a third-person hack-and-slash game that will require you to think quickly, time your moves correctly, and strategize as you fight hordes of souls and demons.
Bloodborne is one of the first PS4 exclusives and while this game is already a couple of years old, it aged like fine wine.
I do have to caution you that, like the Dark Souls titles, this is a pretty hard game. It can be fun, provided that you are a person who likes to challenge themselves when playing.
5.Devil May Cry 5
Fans were eagerly waiting for a sequel to Devil May Cry 4 and after waiting over a decade, Capcom has finally delivered a fitting sequel.
Devil May Cry 5 is still nearly the same at its core but there are some new moves that players will have to be familiar with in order to get the most out of their experience.
You will be controlling either of the three characters: Dante, V, and Nero. Each of them has their own unique weapons and abilities and it is up to you to master all of them.
It will take some time to master all of their moves but when that is accomplished, this is simply one of those games that will help you get glued to the edge of your seats.
6.Ghost of Tsushima
The Ghost of Tsushima is quite a popular game at the time of writing and it talks about the exploits of Jin Sakai- a Japanese Samurai who has to fight against the 13th century Mongols.
This title is so appealing because it is not only historically accurate but it can also get very deep as well. You also have to be ready to sink a lot of hours into this to fully grasp the story and all.
Players who love customizing their characters will love the fact that the level of customization in this game is superb. Of course, you will have to be willing to get whatever is needed to unlock them so there’s that.
Despite the long hours of gameplay, where Ghost of Tsushima shines is in its storytelling. It speaks about duty, honor, and sacrifice which are things that are definitely fitting for the theme.
7.God of War (2018)
This game was one of the most highly anticipated PS4 exclusives back in 2018 and it is still loved by many to this day.
Here, you will control Kratos as you fight against Greek gods from Norse mythology. One iconic change to the franchise, well, at least in this game, is that Kratos now has a son and it certainly changes the whole dynamic.
Considered by pundits and game reviewers as the best game in the franchise, God of War 2018 is definitely one that you should play before the Playstation 5 releases.
Of all the superhero games that were released on the console, Marvel’s Spider-Man is definitely one that you should consider playing.
You will play as the titular character and what’s exciting here is that you not only get to fight against spidey’s signature villains but you can also get a lot of different things that will help make the game even more interesting.
The good thing is that this game is constantly being improved- whether in the form of some new patches that will help smooth out the kinks of the game or some new features that will definitely get you hooked on your TV screen.
It is worth noting that the game also has a pretty unique photo editor which you can use extensively if you want to produce some snaps in-game or whatnot.
The makers of this game have also promised the public that it will continually release new DLCs in the coming months, so stay tuned for more.
9.Horizon Zero Dawn
One of the most captivating games both in terms of storytelling and graphics, Horizon Zero Dawn is always placed in the Top 10 Lists and for all of the right reasons.
This game has impressive visuals. This is so much so that there will be a PC port of this game that will arrive in the near future.
For those of you who haven’t played this game yet, you will be transported back into a unique post-apocalyptic world where it is filled with robotic dinosaurs that you will have to deal with in many parts of the story.
You will be controlling Aloy who is a very skilled fighter and a master of the spear and the bow. She later learns that the things that she can do can ultimately make the lives of the things around her even better.
Seriously, if you want to play a game that is just so visually appealing, you should definitely think about playing Horizon Zero Dawn without a doubt.
Or, if you want to wait for the PC version, be sure to equip your computer with the best graphics cards on the market just to make sure it is ready to handle this beauty.
10.Red Dead Redemption 2
Just like the previous title, Red Dead Redemption 2 is another highly anticipated game. It is made by the same studio that developed the iconic GTA V so you’ll know that you’re in for a treat.
Red Dead Redemption 2 takes you back to the days of the wild west as you patrol the area with a bunch of buddies on horses and deal with the renegade cowboys along the way.
The graphics are just so breathtaking that you can simply have your character stay in one spot and marvel at the beauty of the world you’re in.
This game will require you to play long hours for you to truly grasp what’s going on but I think that that is no problem for you, right?
The Best PC Games in 2020 That Will Help Keep You Entertained During This Quarantine Period
For some people, staying at home sucks. But, for gamers like you and me, it is actually a pretty good thing.
Since we are encouraged to stay at home, getting a good gaming PC now makes sense. Of course, a PC is just one part of the equation as you would also need some games to play as well.
Well, you don’t have to worry about that as I am going to go over the best PC games in 2020 that will help you keep entertained during this quarantine period.
Before We Get Started
First and foremost, you will need to build your own gaming PC. You can either buy a pre-built or you can build it yourself, the choice is entirely up to you.
Best PC Games in 2020
I think this game needs no introduction. Fortnite is the game that spearheaded the creation of a new genre: Battle Royale.
In this game, you are pitted against 99 players and the one that eliminates all others will be the winner. Of course, you can party up with some buddies as well so that you can go against other teams doing the same thing.
While other battle royale games have their own thing, Fortnite also has an ace up its sleeves. Here, you can build fortresses or structures that allow you to gain some advantage over your opponents.
You can also explore the map to find new weapons and items that can help you achieve your goal.
Seriously, Fortnite is still quite a fun and competitive game to play in this day and age and I highly recommend this for sure.
2.Red Dead Redemption 2
From the makers of GTA 5, Red Dead Redemption 2 is another game that has garnered a lot of fans since its release.
The highly-anticipated title lets you control Arthur Morgan and his band of cowboys as you try to capture outlaws in the Wild West.
The game is quite expansive in that it has many side quests and if you are equipped with a pretty good graphics card, you will surely love the landscapes and amazing scenery in this game.
In fact, I would go on to say that you can easily sink more than 50 hours in this game and you would not notice. That is how captivating this is.
You will need a competitive PC for this one but if you’ve got the right specs, then go ahead and try this one for yourself.
3.Monster Hunter: World (Iceborne)
If you are a fan of hack-and-slash RPG games, then Monster Hunter: World is for you. This game is very fun and enjoyable as you have plenty of weapons to choose from- each with their own movesets. You will have to find the one that suits your playstyle before proceeding.
The premise of this game is simple: You gain missions that will prompt you to kill boss enemies. Once they die, they will leave some crafting materials that you can use to build armor and weapons to make your avatar stronger.
You will also be accompanied by a cute cat called a Palico and it uses special items that will help you in your journey.
Since early 2020, Capcom has released a major update known as Iceborne that has introduced a bevy of new monsters for you to kill, as well as new movesets for your preferred weapons.
The game is not ending anytime soon as the company has released a roadmap detailing new content in the coming months.
Although this game can be quite grindy, the fact of the matter is that you are rewarded for your efforts.
To perfectly describe Valorant, all you have to do is be familiar with CS:GO and Overwatch as this game is a mix of the two. You could say that this is Riot Games’ take on a competitive FPS game.
You will be teamed up with 4 other players and the premise of the game is that one team will be planting the bomb while the other team will try their best to defuse it.
It is like CS:GO because this game favors a more steady approach when firing your weapon. Strafing side to side will not work and will diminish your overall accuracy as a result.
Now, you might ask where the Overwatch aspect is. Well, you will choose your own character in this game and each of them has their own unique set of abilities.
The key to winning the round is constant communication, as well as just being good at shooting other people and using your character’s abilities to advance forward.
People have worries about the game’s aggressive approach towards hacking tools and programs so there’s that.
Otherwise, this game is pretty fun to play, especially if you want first-person shooters.
Doom: Eternal is the expansion of the 2016 version of this popular franchise. The graphics are superb and if you have a pretty competitive gaming rig, you will be in awe as you battle hordes of demons.
The game is a bit fast-paced and you have a wide assortment of weapons to choose from. When you find a demon and shoot at it, you might notice that they will be shining yellow. That is the time where you press a key to perform the finishing move.
If you want to heal your character, you will have to rip those demons apart for some health packs. Sure, it does have some gore elements but it is not too disturbing at all.
Fans of PvP type battles will love the new 2v1 multiplayer mode where one team will control the slayer and the other team will control some demons.
If you are a fan of building games, then you will surely love Cities: Skylines. This game was released shortly after SimCity flopped and for the fans of the game, they’re glad that it did.
The objective of the game is simple: You will be building your own city and create as many infrastructures as needed. There will be some tooltips along the way that will guide you through the process.
If the people in your city require better healthcare, you can rectify that by building hospitals. If they require some leisure and entertainment, building some malls can do the trick.
This is a really fun game in its own right but with the vast community it has, there are some fan mods that you can download that will help make the game even better.
For instance, you can download some reskins, building tools, and there are also some graphical tweaks that you can implement if you want.
The game has two new expansions that will help elevate your experience even more. So, if you are a fan of building communities, this is the one that you should definitely try out.
Fans of action RPGs will definitely love Nier: Automata. It is developed by Square Enix which is a household name when it comes to Role-Playing Games.
Here, you will control special Androids and your mission is to wipe out the machines that dominate Earth.
The story is not as straightforward though and that is why fans love this game for its complexity. That is so much so that this title has multiple endings so that you can truly grasp the different sides at play.
Although only appropriate for mature audiences, Nier: Automata has the gameplay and story elements that will surely get you glued to your seats for hours on end.
8.The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
To this day, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is still one of the best games that you can play on the PC. You will control Geralt of Rivia who is a class known as the ‘Witcher’ and your mission is to battle enemies- may it be humans, demons, or any other unnatural phenomena.
This game is quite expansive and you can literally sink 100s of hours to this and you will still not get bored.
It has received two expansions and each of them requires a lot of hours of gameplay to complete, which is pretty nice for people that want to play a single game for a very long time.
The graphics of this game is truly astonishing so if you have money to invest in a good gaming desktop, I highly recommend that you do so to get the full experience.
Do you want to find your brother that is hidden in a building that is in constant architectural flux? That is what Control has to offer.
This game is actually highly acclaimed with numerous pundits saying that it should have won the game of the year honors.
Your character is the head of the Federal Bureau of Control and your job is to contain any unnatural phenomena, all while gaining information about the whereabouts of your lost sibling.
Control gives impressive visuals so you will need a really good PC for this. But if you already have one, I highly recommend this title.
10.Call of Duty: Warzone
Back then, the Call of Duty franchise was more focused on providing players with compelling and memorable story missions but Activision also wants to join the Battle Royale fray and that is why it has developed Call of Duty: Warzone.
This game is considered to be at the top of the genre which is only followed by Fortnite and Apex Legends.
Just like Fortnite, CoD: Warzone all has its own unique twists. For instance, when you die in battle, you will actually have to engage in a 1-on-1 fight against another fallen player and if you win, you will not only revive yourself and get back into action but you will also gain some money in the process as well.
You can also strive to gain some contracts that will unlock exclusive perks and structure to the gameplay. To gain them, you will have to do a number of different things, including hunting down enemies, finding and opening certain chests, among others. The game is seriously fun to play whether you are a casual or a professional player. Although you will need lots of storage space on your SSD, this game will provide you with a good level of entertainment for sure.
