Video Games To Beat Boredom

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Long-lasting video games - The Witcher

Until a Witcher 4 comes out, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be an open-world progression game like no other. Playing as the witcher Geralt, the player must conquer grotesque monsters, solve petty disputes between humans, and find his surrogate daughter Ciri.

This series could have easily been a few linear action games. However, the third game takes the series to new heights. With multiple DLC packs and missions, players will quickly sink over 100 hours into this game.

While it may be a little tricky at first, you’ll be slaying beasts and brewing potions in no time.

The Mass Effect Series

Although the third game’s ending has created a wealth of controversy for various reasons, the Mass Effect trilogy is one of the most satisfying gaming experiences out there.

The game throws you into our future, populated with multiple alien races, feuds, planets, and more sci-fi greatness. The second and third games add addicting features and storylines that make you feel a part of this universe.

Red Dead Redemption 2

Long-lasting video games - Red Dead Redemption

Rockstar’s second stab at an immersive Wild West game was a resounding success in 2018. A few years later, it still holds up.

While at some times it plods along in the story, the degree of freedom you have in this fictional version of the United States at the turn of the 20th century is a fantastic prequel to 2011’s Red Dead Redemption. You can hunt, ride, cause mayhem, and take part in the excellent online multiplayer.

Red Dead will eat a ton of your time, so put those plans on hold: the old West is calling.

Total War: Three Kingdoms

Long-lasting video games - Total War

The Total War series of historical battle simulation games offer gamers the chance to become armchair generals.

In Three Kingdoms, players take on the role of a warlord in the tumultuous Three Kingdoms period of China’s extensive military history. China has torn asunder from the tyranny of Dong Zhuo. Will you piece together an army to take him down?

After Dong Zhuo is out of the picture, the next step is to become emperor yourself. With a vast map, a great combat system, you’ll be killing time with this game for untold hours. Since there’s really no end after the campaign, you could sink hundreds and hundreds of hours

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI

The latest entry in the wildly popular ‘just one more turn’ series of Civilization games, Civ VI continues the legacy forged by creator Sid Meier.

In Civ VI, you choose a civilization headed by famous figures in history. You start in the Stone Age and work your way towards the future. You can win in multiple ways: science victories that take you to the outer reaches of space; diplomatic victories where you bring the world together; conquest victories where you dominate your other opponents.

This game series will have you up at ungodly hours of the night clicking ‘end turn’ to see what happens next. Will Gandhi nuke you? Will you create giant mechas to crush your foes in the future?

No Man’s Sky

Long-lasting video games - No Man's Sky

No Man’s Sky was one of the most highly anticipated games ever released in recent memory. It’s 2016 launch was met with anger, frustration, and disbelief.

The game seemed like it wasn’t even finished, and all of the promises of cool stuff seemed to go up in smoke. There were glitches, no good multiplayer, boring worlds, and more terrible gameplay aspects.

However, since 2016, the game developers have been putting in extra effort and manpower to transform this once disappointing game into a winner. And guess what? They did.

The current build of No Man’s Sky is an addictive, casual, and fun adventure through the stars. Players can play with others and build bases on other planets. While there are still some bugs and glitches, the game has grown by leaps and bounds. Also, the developers have made every significant update over the years completely free.

I can’t recommend No Man’s Sky highly enough to exhibit what it means to be a long-lasting game that’s well worth your time.
