You’ll definitely get your money’s worth out of these games, since they have a lot to do and find.
One of the main reasons people play video games is to get away from their everyday lives. You can go on big adventures and take on epic quests because of them. Once the game is over, you can turn it off and put it away, feeling good about yourself.
Some games show you everything there is to see on the first try, but other games still have a lot to show you. The size and complexity of their worlds means that there are dozens upon dozens of hidden treats, glitches, and exploits that gamers are still finding years, or even decades, after release.
The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim is the fifth game in the series.
The world of Skyrim is not only a great game in the long-running Elder Scrolls series, but it also has its own group of loyal fans. In this adventure, the Last Dragonborn travels the land, killing Dragons and taking their souls.
Even now, people still play Skyrim, and there are still mysteries to solve and surprises to find. Players keep finding new bugs, which were part of the game’s charm from the start. The game map is so big that you can spend a lot of time wandering around and doing side quests while ignoring the main goal.
Breath of the Wild: The Legend of Zelda
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the first new Legend of Zelda game for a home console since Skyward Sword came out for the Wii. After hearing some of the complaints about that game, Nintendo decided it was time to give the series a “soft reboot” that took it back to its more open-world roots.
Nintendo did a great job with this task, giving players a colorful world to explore. There are puzzles to solve at hidden shrines and koroks to find all over the land. Even after the main quest is done, there are still dozens of side quests, villagers to help, and the Champions’ Ballad DLC, which gives more information about the pilots of the Divine Beasts.
Stardew Valley is a computer game.
Stardew Valley was made by a single person, Eric Barone, also known as Concerned Ape. This is probably the most impressive thing about the game. The game is based on the Harvest Moon series and lets you live a fantasy life as the owner of a farm in a small, friendly town. You can also go hunting and fishing and fight monsters in dungeons.
Just when you think you’ve seen everything, a new surprise pops up. One of the characters has a new experience. A fairy might enchant the crops on the farm, or a cackling witch might show up one night and leave a hollow egg.
Lego City: Secret Agent
Yes, this list includes a LEGO game. But it’s not just any LEGO game. Traveller’s Tales and Nintendo worked together to make Lego City: Undercover for the Wii U. After a few years, it was released on other platforms as well. The game made by Traveller’s Tales’ handheld division, TT Fusion, isn’t a linear story like their other games. Instead, it’s set in an open city like Grand Theft Auto.
This game also has a lot to discover. People can find golden bricks all over the world. When enough parts are found, people can build things in the world. There are a lot of silly LEGO minifigures in the world. They live in different parts of LEGO City, like skyscrapers, suburbs, and nature parks.
Animal Crossing is a series of games by Nintendo that are kind of the opposite of video games. Usually, a game has a big goal to reach at the end, and the player has to go through some trials or challenges to get there. That’s not what Animal Crossing is about. Animal Crossing has goals to work toward, but its main purpose is to be fun.
The way the game works encourages frequent visits to the user-made village. The digital clock built into the console tells the game world what day and time it is, so time moves at the same rate as in real life. With that, the seasons change and things happen differently. On holidays, you can catch different bugs and there are special celebrations. There are also surprises when you start the game over.
It seems like every time there’s a listicle, Minecraft sticks its blocky head up and asks for the same attention that millions and millions of players around the world have already given it.
Minecraft has every right to be on this list. Each world seed creates a new world with cliffs, caves, deserts, mountaintops, and dangerous mobs to find. With regular updates, the world is always getting new creatures and ways to play. With Redstone, players can make almost any crazy thing they can think of,
