Video games are an incredibly popular way to spend time. In the last few years video games have become more and more popular with many people now playing regularly. There are so many different video games that there is something for everyone. Depending on what you like, you can choose from role playing games, first person shooters, adventure, action and so much more. Video games have come so far over the years and will continue to keep growing.
Zelda Ocarina of Time
This game was released in 1998, so it’s not necessarily a new release. However, the game feels fresh and engaging every time you play it. In this game, you control Link as he tries to save Hyrule from Ganon. You must defeat Ganon while also traveling through time by playing songs on your ocarina. It’s a pretty simple but challenging adventure game that will keep you coming back for more!
The graphics are amazing and give players an immersive experience into the world of Hyrule. The gameplay is straightforward with easy controls but also challenging puzzles that will have you thinking outside of the box at times. As an action-adventure platformer role-playing third person single player open world action turn based game (what does all that mean?) there is something here for everyone!
Super Mario 64
Super Mario 64 was a launch title for the Nintendo 64, and it remains one of the most popular video games of all time. At its core, Super Mario 64 is a 3D platformer that allows you to control Mario—the titular character from Nintendo’s long-running series. You can explore several different worlds in each level and collect coins along the way by jumping on enemies or collecting them from floating question mark boxes.
Super Mario 64 was a commercial success when it was released in 1996, becoming one of only five games ever to reach over 10 million copies sold on any home console system (including PC). In addition to being commercially successful, Super Mario 64 also received critical acclaim: It won awards such as Best Graphics Technology at E3 1996, Best Platform Game at E3 1997, and Best Action/Adventure Game at IGN’s Best of E3 Award Show 1999.
Grand Theft Auto V
The fifth major installment in the Grand Theft Auto series, Grand Theft Auto V was released on 17 September 2013 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and on 18 November 2014 for Microsoft Windows. It is the first main entry in the series since 2008’s Grand Theft Auto IV. Set within the fictional city of Los Santos and its surrounding areas, the single-player story follows three criminals: Franklin, Michael De Santa (Trevor Phillips in the PC version), and a professional getaway driver named Lamar Davis. Their stories interconnect as they complete missions which often provide them with opportunities to commit heists while under pressure from a government agency. The open world design lets players freely roam San Andreas’ open countryside and urban areas to engage in activities like buying property or taking part in time-based side activities including those taken from previous entries such as Hunting and Golfing.
The game is structured around three protagonists; each protagonist has their own story arc that further explores their character and relationship with one another as well as complications arising from their actions at home and abroad.
Red Dead Redemption II
Red Dead Redemption II is an open-world action-adventure game developed and published by Rockstar Games. It was released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26, 2018. In the game, players assume control of Arthur Morgan, a gunslinger who works with Dutch van der Linde’s gang in 1899 America to steal from the rich and give back to the poor. Red Dead Redemption II has sold over 18 million copies worldwide as of December 31st 2018, making it one of the most successful games ever made.
While I didn’t get around to playing this until 2019 (and then only after hearing about how good it was), I can see why it made this list: it’s visually stunning and immerses you in its world like few other games do.
The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild
Breath of the Wild is a single-player action-adventure video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U. Set in Hyrule, the game features a journey by Link to defeat Ganon after he takes possession of Zelda, who has been imprisoned in Hyrule Castle.

The game follows amnesiac Link as he awakens from his slumber 100 years after Calamity Ganon was defeated by Princess Zelda and her army in battle against him and his allies; Link must help her defeat Ganon once again while also saving Hyrule from destruction at their hands.
Halo 3 is a first-person shooter video game developed by Bungie Studios.

The game was released on September 25, 2007, in Australia, Brazil, India, New Zealand, North America, and Singapore; September 26 in Europe; and September 27 in Japan.
MySims is a game where you create your own characters and customize them. You can make your own houses and town, or you can play with other people in the same room or online with friends. In MySims, you can build a house, decorate it, invite people over to visit (or just have them visit), throw parties, go on adventures—the list goes on! You can even make movies about your character’s lives; it’s amazing!

The Witcher III: Wild Hunt is a story-based, next generation open world role-playing game set in a visually stunning fantasy universe full of meaningful choices and impactful consequences. In The Witcher you play as Geralt of Rivia, one of a dying caste of monster hunters, and embark on an epic journey in a war-ravaged world that will inevitably lead you to confront a foe darker than anything humanity has faced so far—the Wild Hunt.
Undertale is a role-playing game created by Toby Fox and released in September 2015. The game has been described as a cross between EarthBound and Cave Story, with influences from the Mother series. Its innovative combat mechanics, story, characters and music have made it one of the most critically acclaimed indie games ever produced.
The game starts with you befriending Toriel after falling into an underground world filled with monsters who were once trapped underground by humans. As you journey through this strange new world looking for your way home, you meet other friendly monsters who either want to be your friend or fight you because they are afraid of humans returning to their world again. As you travel further through this underground world, more secrets are revealed about why these monsters came here and what happened to them when they were turned into stone statues thousands of years ago by humans who wanted to live in peace without having monsters around them all the time.
