End of the year 2021: the most popular online games of the year
Gaming has always been a primary source of entertainment not only for young people and adolescents, but also for adults. Everyone wants to chill out and relax a bit and get away from their busy work schedule. This is where some popular and engaging games come into play. Over the years, the culture of gaming has grown considerably. From PC games to PlayStations, we are now in the generation where the 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 that 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. This is a Battle Royale-hero shooting game developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by the giants of the gaming industry, 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 of last year. The best part? You can play it for free and have a rewarding time whenever you want.
To call Homework: War zone: If you are someone who gets really excited every time it comes to volatile war games involving big guns and tankers this is the one you need to play. The new feature where the ‘war zone skin’ makes players partially invisible is also super cool and fun.
Counter strike: If you are someone who is extremely interested in learning about weapons and ammunition, you must have played Counter Strike at some point in your life. This is a series of multiplayer first person shooter video games in which you get teams of terrorists fighting each other in order to carry out an act of terror while the counterterrorists 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 making it one of the most popular in 2021. The fourth game in the series aka ‘Counter Strike: Global Offensive ‘is our favorite multiplayer game pick in case you want to try it out for the very first time.
Dota 2: Another that must be in the list for the year 2021 is Dota 2. The game is a sequel to Defense of the Ancients, which was a community-created mod for Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos from Blizzard Entertainment. It is one of the most addicting multiplayer games and it gives you a beautiful “virtual reality” experience of living in history and engaging in royal battles. If you’ve never played it, download and get started ASAP.
Fortnite Battle Royale: It was one of the most engaging and entertaining games of 2021 without a doubt. It was first released as a companion game to Fortnite: Save The World, which was a cooperative survival game with several building elements. The best part? It’s absolutely free on iOS, Android, Xbox, and if you like the multiplayer experience, you’d better not skip that.
GTA Online: Since the launch of the ‘Grand Theft Auto’ brand, it has only grown and improved year by year. When it comes to GTA Online in particular, the old “multiplayer” feature that has gained attention in the game again is what makes it even more addicting. You can enjoy this game on your PlayStation and different Xbox 360 and other variations.
League of Legends: If you are someone who loves fighting arena games too much and also prefers high quality graphics, this is a must in your installed games list. According to Wikipedia reports, the game was inspired by ‘Defense 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 into 2021.
Pokémon Go: Well, this game has made headlines for both good and bad reasons. Pokemon was an indispensable part of the childhood of anyone born in the 90s and no wonder, after many years when a game like this came out it got super addicting all over the world. Such was the addiction that we have even heard reports of people having car crashes while apparently playing the game while driving. The game has a lot of focus on experiencing ‘augmented reality’ 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 of the past few years and the VR experience has literally wowed everyone. With each passing year new modes are released as well as regular updates to improve the gaming experience. So here is a shout out to all the “winners”, does anyone want “chicken” For dinner ?
8 ball poolLast but not least, we have 8 Ball Pool, which is by far the biggest and most engaging multiplayer pool game online. No complications regarding the subject of the game. It is a simple snooker / billiards “virtual reality” experience and for those who do not have the luxury of playing real pool, it is certainly a good experience to try and to sort out your bases in terms of rules and procedures. .
