There are hundreds of games coming out each month, so many that a decent gamer can’t even keep track of them, let alone play them all! That is why we decided to create a list to help you look in the right direction and maybe help you decide what to enjoy next.
Kingdom Under Fire II
When looking at the games being released it is somewhat easy to tell what’s what and what you’ll like just based on the genre. The game that breaks these rules is being released soon, after years of development and it’s unlike anything you’ve seen.
With the chaotic real-time fights, MMO RPG elements and real time strategy overcast, it combines a ton of things we love to create an amazing piece of entertainment. It looks chaotic and beautiful at the same time and after years it spent in the shop we can’t wait to see what it amounts to.
Monster Hunter Online
Coming up, straight from the consoles, Monster Hunter is on the PC! And it is online! The biggest game of the franchise is bringing all that we loved into the big league. With the international release being postponed, the Chine had the chance to sample the glory of this game, and it was fantastic.
The game, the monsters, the graphics – the real thing, the pieces of puzzle complete a flawless picture that is an awesome RPG full of epic monsters and one hundred ways to kill them.
Tales of Berseria
After a staggering fifteen games, the developers are making a U-turn and present us with the female protagonist for the first time. As a lady, after all, this time, they made sure that she is both awesome and epic.
Set in the time before previous games, this prequel deals with a lot of the same stuff we’ve seen before – evil forces making men and women sick and we have to do something about it. The new hero seems to be doing a great job at hack and slashing the many foes, but we haven’t seen many nuances up to now.
Divinity Original Sin II
An absolute champion of crowd funding and a miracle in itself – the name of the game is Original Sin II. After doing something a lot of games can’t accomplish in their entire run, this game had made records before it even became a game. Funded by supporters on the Kickstarter, OS2 gathered half a million dollars – in half a day!
What fans got in return is a spectacular game, a real RPG that will be enjoyed by many. It offers some special features like competitive quest solving where you can compete against other players in who does the quest first.
Also, there is a cooperative mode, crafting, and many others unique features that make sure this game is a complete title with no weak sides. Are you hyped yet??
Video games are often being a subject of a debate that focuses on their positive or negative effects, and people from all over the world have their opinion about this matter. However, it is evident that the popularity of video games is on the rise, and that the gaming industry is more powerful than ever. As a matter of fact, 4 out of 5 households in the United States are owning a gaming console, and around $33 million is spent annually on gaming products. The entire industry is estimated at over $100 billion, which is an impressive number and it clearly demonstrates the size of the gaming world. Clearly, there is something that attracts people to video games, and the benefits of playing these software products are numerous, despite the critics and their claims that video games are “directly sent from Hell”.
Scientific research and studies that are conducted by reliable experts and institutions with integrity are a good reference point on any topic, and gaming is certainly no exception. Those studies are showing that the positive effects of playing video games far outweigh the negative connotations, and they demonstrate the fact that gaming can be a very useful and helpful activity. Gamers are relieved to hear this news, but they were not bothered by the “trash talk” in the first place, simply because they knew that games helped them in many aspects of their lives and that gaming is something that makes them more attentive, more creative and more social.
When it comes to those positive effects, experts say that gaming can boost the memory and that cognitive processes are being stimulated by constant interactions with the characters and elements on the screen. Since events and things are rapidly moving and changing within the game, players need to be attentive and focused, which increases alertness and responsiveness. Our perception is also improved due to the need to be concentrated and careful when playing modern gaming titles. Hand-eye coordination is also being improved with video games, and all of these effects are showing that gaming is not such a bad thing after all.
Furthermore, modern video games are usually played in groups, or with friends and family in multiplayer mode, which can result in better relations and it can serve as a great bonding activity. The claims that video games are making people anti-social are now completely disputed, and the introduction of group play has brought players closer together.
When it comes to our young ones, who are an especially sensitive group in every sense, video games can be helpful with their school activities and learning.
Numerous cases have shown the increase in motivation for learning of history with the kids who were playing strategic video games at home, and this indicates that they become fascinated with stories and characters that appear in some titles.
Also, they can become more interested in sports, and the fact that they are controlling their favorite soccer player may ignite a desire in some of them to become successful soccer players themselves.
