Review: New Video Games


Nahiara M., Staff Writer

Recently, there has been a rise in new games, and since we are in quarantine with nothing better to do, we can finally enjoy these games. Among Us, Fall Guys, and (this is not new but has lots of epic updates) Minecraft are bound to make you play games nonstop until 2021.


     First is the game Among Us. Among Us is a murder mystery game that is able to be played on PC and mobile. The objective, if you’re a crewmate (aka an innocent), is to help complete all tasks on the ship and figure out who the imposter is. As for the imposter, (aka the sneaky killer), the goal is to sabotage all players. I think the game is exhilarating and quite entertaining, so I would give it a 9/10. Keep in mind; the game is free on mobile and for the pc version you have to pay.


      The second game is Fall Guys! The game is a multiplayer parkour-like game and can hold anywhere from 2-60 people. It can be played on PC or PlayStation and there are a variety of maps and modes you can play on the game. One downside is that the game costs 20 whole dollars on both pc and PlayStation, a bit pricey if you ask me, besides the price the game has really cool graphics and vibrant colors which I enjoy. I give it a solid 7/10.


      Lastly is Minecraft! Although the game is far from new, it has received many new updates that make it even better. Minecraft is a multi and single-player game that can be played either in either survival mode where the objective is to survive or in creative mode where you can do whatever your heart desires. The game has been relevant for quite a long time, but it recently received a new Nether update all players were waiting for! Not only that, but they also got some new cool servers like Galaxite and CubeCraft. On these servers, you can play many mini-games with friends and buy accessories like pets! Minecraft can be played on almost any device, Ipads, cell phones, PC, X-box, Playstation, and even switch! It costs anywhere from $7 for mobile to $20 for pc. Though it commands a high price tag, I still think that Minecraft is totally worth it.   

     Overall this is just my opinion on the games. I hope this helped you decide what game you and your friends might try on your next video call!
