   While stuck inside a lot of people have gotten bored and don’t know what to do. Then video games come and save the day. A lot of people have started to play video games. This is a list of some games that people play while inside.

     First off, people have started to play Among Us. Among Us is a murder mystery styled game. There is a certain amount of crewmates and imposters. The crewmates are trying to complete all of their tasks and figure out who the imposter(s) is. The imposters are trying to kill the crewmates and not get caught. Among Us came out on June 15, 2018. Even though it came out in 2018 it really started to gain popularity in 2020.

     Another game is Minecraft. Minecraft has been around for a long time but it slowly started to lose popularity as new games came out. Then in 2020, it started to become popular again. Minecraft is an adventure-type game. There are two settings: creative and survival. Creative is for people who want to do a lot of building and creating. Survival is for people who want to play the game with a chance of dying and a lot of people in survival try to beat the game’s boss, called the Ender Dragon. Minecraft came out on May 17, 2009. It was a hit and a lot of people really enjoy the game even now.

     A game that was an instant hit is Animal Crossing New Horizons. Animal Crossing New Horizons is a life simulation style of game. In Animal Crossing New Horizons you are on an island and you get elected to upkeep and landscape. You are able to make friends with the other villagers and work on decorating the island. There are more Animal Crossing games other than New Horizons. Animal Crossing New Horizons came out on March 20, 2020, and it is now a favorite for a large group of people.

     Fall Guys became a very popular game almost immediately. Fall Guys is a contest based game. In Fall Guys you play against 60 other people from all around the world. There are different maps and in every map, you have to reach the end while going through obstacles and competing with other players. Little by little, more and more players get eliminated. In the end, there is a final showdown. In the showdown, the few remaining players duke it out to try to end up on top. Fall Guys came out on August 4, 2020. It became a very big game and a lot of people can say that they have played this game.

    When we needed them, video games came to the rescue and have helped a lot of people get through quarantine and the pandemic.
