How Gaming Is Your Key to Socialization
Video games are more than just cool graphics, immersive storylines and endless explosions. They provide a platform for people to connect, catch up and create lasting memories with distant family and friends. According to a new study by ESA, video games help bring people together, as most gamers (65 percent) play with others or as part of an online community. Whether you’re a gaming god(dess) or new to the industry, here are a few of our top picks for playing with your pals.
For Your Gaming Console
Explore blocky, 3D worlds with eight of your closest friends on the world’s most popular video game. Basically a virtual Lego set on steroids, Minecraft allows players to search for raw materials and tools and construct impressive buildings, work with others to create cool structures or compete in a variety of fun mini-games. Whatever you decide, Minecraft is guaranteed to bust boredom for good.
Fortnite Battle Royale
The completely free online video game is perfect for playing with your pals. The newest version of the iconic series throws 100 players onto an island and leaves them to fight until only one remains.
