Top 10 Games to Play in Quarantine


In these tough times in society right now, there isn’t much to do. When students asked for school to be canceled, I don’t think this is what they meant. Nonetheless, society has to improvise and now board games and video games are thriving. I have been constantly playing board games and video games and it’s kept me entertained for the most part.

NUMBER 10 – Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare

I have never actually played Call Of Duty, but all of my guy friends are always playing this game. They have also tried to convince me to get the game and with the amount of coercion involved, the game would have to be really good to be convinced to get it. It’s a first-person shooter that thrusts the player into the battlefield and has the ‘heavy grind’ that I enjoy.

NUMBER 9- Lotería

This game has caused some serious family problems and has opened my eyes to how bad my luck is. It’s basically the Hispanic version of Bingo except instead of numbers it’s animals and people in Spanish. It’s a nice distraction and it becomes even more fun when betting enters the mix. There are three different versions to play and each one is competitive. 

NUMBER 8 – Rainbow 6 Siege

Again I’ve never played Rainbow 6 Siege. However, I’ve seen numerous gameplays of this game and I’ve wanted to play it for a long time. It’s a first-person shooter game that allows the player to play as different characters from the Rainbow Team. It’s a fun game to play and many people play this game. It’s still surprisingly popular with its fierce competitor, COD: Modern Warfare.

NUMBER 7 – Overwatch

Anyone who plays video games can explain what Overwatch is. Overwatch is a first-person shooter game that allows the player to play from a variety of different shooters and the matches can go for as long as 40 minutes or less. It has characters for every type of person and has a practice arena for newcomers to the game. Granted, I haven’t played it since quarantine has started, but it’s still a fun game and I would recommend it.

NUMBER 6 – Clash of Clans

I played this game when I was a kid and then I stopped playing it. However, this game has been becoming more popular recently and it’s easy to understand why. Clash of Clans is about strategy and grinding. I’ve always enjoyed games that need ‘the grind’ and this game is very heavy on grinding and when fighting opponents, knowing a good strategic plan is key to winning. 

NUMBER 5 – The Sims

I’ve only played The Sims on a computer a handful of times but I have played it on mobile for a while. You can create an entirely new world in this game down to the tiniest details. I’ve seen this game popping up everywhere, especially on Tik Tok, and it’s quite fun to play. Another ‘pro’ to this game is that this game doesn’t need the internet to be played.

NUMBER 4 – Minecraft

Now, this is a gaming classic. Minecraft has been a part of my life since I was a kid and I’m sure I can speak for many others. Since Pewdiepie brought Minecraft back, its playtime has skyrocketed and now that society hasn’t been able to go out, it’s no surprise that this game is being played constantly considering that it doesn’t need the internet to be played. I’ve been playing this game a ton since being stuck inside.

NUMBER 3 – Nerf Battle

Basically, my family and I arm ourselves with Nerf guns and play Modern Warfare in real life. We bet some money and whoever is the last person standing gets all the money. We get a new location to start from each round and eliminate each other one by one until only one is left. This is always fun to play but many arguments start because of people not feeling it or knowing that you hit someone but the referee says you didn’t.

NUMBER 2 – Cards Against Humanity

Cards Against Humanity is widely popular and everyone knows why. This game similar to Apples to Apples is geared towards people with dirty minds. You get 7 white cards that all say different phrases and people on them and a player plays a black card that has a sentence with a blank in it. You put a white card in that seems like ‘the worst’ while also making sense. This game has shown my dad that my sisters and I aren’t his innocent daughters anymore.

NUMBER 1 – Most Likely To

Basically, a card is read that will say a sentence on the back like, ‘most likely to go get food in a rainstorm,’ and the people who are playing have to say who they think the card belongs to and why. The point of the game is to have the least amount of cards possible and once a player hits 7, they lose. This game has revealed the true colors of my family and how we view each other. It has also provided a whole lot of laughter. 

With all that’s happening in the world right now, all that society can do is stay inside and enjoy what’s happening in their houses. Playing board games and video games is a big source of entertainment right now and I’m enjoying it immensely. I hope you enjoy these games on a mission to flatten the curve and stay safe.
