Gamers need direction occasionally. This is especially true during the busy time of preparing for college. This list will help you decide which games you need to kill time (and make friends) with in college.
Even with the imminent release of its successor, Grand Theft Auto IV revolutionized the gaming industry years ago. Packed with content,Grand Theft Auto IV is only $19.99 on Steam. From gunning down enemy gangs to relaxing in a penthouse suite, this is one game that you will not be able to put down.
4. Payday 2
Another game that might question your morals is Payday 2. In Payday 2, you and up to three other friends get to break into art galleries, banks and drug houses to make as much money as possible. This game is useful for making friends in college, too, considering you and three other people are about to become career criminals in this action-packed ride. Payday 2 is $29.99.
3. Dota 2
Dota 2 is the sequel to Valve’s incredibly successful Dota. You will take control of one of more than 100 characters and attack enemy strongholds controlled by an opposing team. This free-to-play multiplayer RPG (role-playing game) will have you shouting with joy and frustration with every kill and every death. Dota 2 is another strong friend-maker, but be wary: Dota 2 games can take up to an hour and can squelch study time.
If you have yet to hear of Skyrim, then gamers you meet in college are likely to question where you have been for the last few years. Skyrimis $29.99 on Steam and is well worth the price. Your adventures in the land of Skyrim will have you killing dragons and slaying bandits. Each tale is one worth discussing with your current gamer friends and a great way to make new ones.
1. Garry’s Mod
Garry’s Mod opens up the world to your imagination. With no set goals, the game gives tools of creation (and destruction) to the player. Do you want to build a hot tub with propellers and shoot zombies that look like Iron Man? You can do all this, and much more, with your friends or by yourself. Garry’s Mod is sure to eat up valuable studying time.
