Edit: One other thing I'll say about ESO is that if you like diversity and representation, it's pretty great in that regard. You can have an overweight, old character who's capable. There are a lot of GSD characters there as well (Gender and Sexual Diversities, which is a more inclusive term than LGBT). Hell, there are interspecies GSD characters, it's marvellous.
The main issue with this one is that, while it's a great concept, if it's not one that you were with from the beginning, then you're going to either have to do a lot of homework, or have a perpetually bemused look on your face.
Taking a break from talking about destroying your enemies, instead is a racing game where you are trying to beat other players to checkpoints along the track. If you make it across the checkpoint, you get a power-up that can boost your speed or fire a bullet that will give an enemy a little shove.
War Brokers has plenty of different guns and machines for you to unlock and use. Guns unlock over time, but you do start off with a pistol and a rifle to defend yourself with. Vehicles such as helicopters and tanks can be found around the map, which you can of course get into and control. If you log into an account, there are tons of little missions and rewards you can claim for playing. And the competition can be brutal it's especially good if you want a challenging experience.
This pixelated strategy game has you building your own kingdom while trying to fight and take down others. You can construct buildings, manage units, and collect resources, all in the name of survival. At first, you need to focus on gathering resources and building up your base. Your ultimate goal is to have the best army and destroy anything in your path you can do this on your own or with a friend (even an AI) to grow your base together.
The whole game is consistently absurd and amusing, from the enemy types, to the genre conventions it apes so cleverly. And while you can't directly play with other people, you can steal their stuff, join guilds and interact with them. So that's something.
also takes some slight inspiration from Snake, but instead of growing your tail, you are capturing parts of the screen and expanding your color&rsquo s dominance. The floor is made of hexes, each one white to begin with. You convert as many tiles as possible to your color, selecting tiles by moving over them, before linking back to tiles that are already the correct color. All of the tiles circled will then change to your color. While you are exploring blank tiles or tiles that are not your color, a tail appears where you have traveled. Other players can collide with this tail to kill you, causing your tiles disappear and forcing you to restart.
Sometimes the destruction of these rocks will yield power-ups, which either increase your bomb&rsquo s explosion radius, make you run faster, or allow you to carry more than one bomb. Once enough of the rocks are cleared away, you can reach the other players and hopefully catch them in your bomb&rsquo s explosion without getting singed instead. The last player standing wins. You can also say &lsquo hi&rsquo to other players in the game, flashing a wave emoji above your head. Blast Arena is still in development as a beta.
The main goal of the game is simply to stay alive and earn enough points to reach the top of the scoreboard. The more points you earn the more you level up and the more weapons you can unlock. It's very quick to get into, perfect if you are looking for fast-paced matches.
I feel like this list deserves extending, Battlefield 9, ESO. Overwatch certainly has potential but at £95 I guess it's a close call on whether or not you'd recommend it. Personally I would also put H6Z6 King of the Hill on this list, along with Insurgency and Speed Runners, but those choices may be partially bias from me, being the games that my friends also own :P
