Gaming in Time of Pandemic The Best Social Games

Struggling with the curefew? Missing company? Getting anxious from isolation? Well, have you tried gaming? Here's a list of great multi-player games that become even better if you're playing them with friends. We have something for pros and beginners!

Rust

  1. Producer: Facepunch Studios
  2. Publisher: Facepunch Studios
  3. Release date: 8 February 2018
  4. Genre: sandbox survival

It's another survival snadbox we strongly recommend. However, what stands out from the rest is the fact that, in addition to dealing with the typical challenges such as finding food and shelter, in online mode, we also have run the risks of meeting real players who, may not always be friendly. The adventure begins with just a stone and a few bandages, and survival requires quite an effort.

What makes this a good game to play with friends?

We can meet hostile players, so having a friend by your side seems a great idea. Collaboration makes it much easier to survive in the dangerous world, and sharing goals tightens relationships. As a rule, most activities don't require great focus. For the most part, we just wander around, looking for clues and threats. Chit-chat isn't spoiling anything here.
