In today’s world, we have so many distractions and entertainment options that it’s hard to know what to do with ourselves. One of the most popular pastimes is sitting in front of a computer screen playing video games. These days there are hundreds of games out there for every type of interest, from sports games where you can play as your favorite team or player up to role-playing games where you get to be a wizard or warrior. It can be challenging finding the right game for you though because not only does each game offer different gameplay challenges and objectives, but they also run on different types of systems like PC gaming vs console gaming. The purpose of this article is to help guide you through some of the best PC games out there so you can find the game that works for you.
First on our list, is one of the most iconic video games ever made. Tetris was originally released in 1984 and took gamers by storm because it perfected the perfect gameplay formula of simple controls with progressively difficult challenges. The goal is to fit different square blocks together to create full rows before they fill up your entire screen. With over 170 million units sold worldwide, this puzzle game has become a timeless classic enjoyed by people of all ages.
Where’s My Water?
Next up, we have another popular puzzle game called Where’s My Water? Where’s My Water? is a Disney-themed physics puzzler where players are tasked with guiding clean water through underground sewer systems to help Swampy the Alligator take a bath. The cool thing about this game is that it features an additional “freeze” element. To solve each puzzle, gamers must strategically use items like bombs and rubber ducks to put out fires and direct water into Swampy’s tub. Despite being one of the most well-known mobile games in history, Where’s My Water? was released for PC in 2013 where it won Tech Times E-Sports Game of the Year in 2014.
Slender: The Eight Pages
Next on our list is another open-world survival horror video game called Slender: The Eight Pages. This jump scare-fest tasks players with exploring a dark foreboding forest while avoiding Slender Man, a tall skeletal figure who is said to possess inhuman abilities and can distort one’s sense of reality. The goal of the game is to find and collect eight pages without letting Slender Man catch you. If he does, your character goes insane and the screen fades to black with only “HELP ME” scrawled in blood onscreen as a reminder that you’re now trapped in Slender Man’s nightmarish world forever (or until you restart, at least).
Five Nights At Freddy’s
Now we move onto another popular open-world survival horror game called Five Nights At Freddy’s. This video game follows security guard Mike Schmidt who must survive until 6 am by watching over animatronic animal characters that come alive at night. There are several different types of animatronic characters, but the main antagonist is Freddy Fazbear. Mike must keep an eye on these characters via security cameras and make sure they don’t come into his office or else he’ll be jumpscare by them (and no one wants that). This game can be difficult to beat because gamers are stuck in the first-person point of view where it’s hard to judge how close you are to something, leading to lots of premature scares.
Five Nights at Freddy’s has spawned quite a few sequels including Five Nights at Freddy’s 2, Five Nights at Freddy’s 3, and Five Nights At Freddy’s 4. The latest entry into the series is five nights at Freddy’s sister location where gamers are now stuck in a horror attraction called “Fazbear’s Fright.”
