Winter holidays are just around the corner, which gives players an absurd amount of free time that is not present during the fall semester. With that free time, here are seven games you should play during the holidays.
1. South Park: The Fractured But Whole
South Park has always been at the center of pop culture and outrage within society, but what South Park has not done in a long time is to make a game. In 2014, when South Park: The Stick of Truth came out, he took the world of video games by assault. He was praised for his incredible writings and jokes. The simple but classic role playing style led the game to its success. Now with The Fractured But Whole South Park advances in this formula by offering a new system of tactical RPG and a new adventure with as many scams as the first. If you like South Park and RPG games, definitely choose this
2. Super Mario Odyssey
Mario games have always had the same idea in mind: platforms are the key. Mario games have also rejuvenated the formula of the simple premise, either by putting new mechanisms never before seen or by introducing new ideas to the new scenario. Odyssey not only reinvents Mario's formula, it does so by being one of the best Mario games in decades. With Cappy on Mario's side, Mario can take care of virtually any creature, object and even a dinosaur by simply throwing his hat over the desired creature. The new game mechanics never before seen in a Mario game allows the player to change his playing style and be able to solve riddles. If you do not have a Nintendo Switch, the game would be an easy reason to put one on your wish list.
3. Assassin & # 39; s Creed Origins
For the old decadent fans of Assassin & # 39; s Creed, the last entries in the series have been disappointing to say the least. Technical problems, boring story and gameplay that did not reach the top as Assassin & # 39; s Creed II . The fans wanted a new entrance with a certain weight, and their demands were answered. Origins offers new improvements in RPGs, such as equipment, combat and leveling, as well as the larger world in an Assassin's game with scenes like the open sea of Egypt to the pyramids. In the distance. Settling in Ancient Egypt allows the series to get into the story and fans can return to their roots where Assassin & # 39; s Creed was originally created, hence the name Origins . If you are a fan of the Creed series, definitely take a leap of faith.
4. Call of Duty: WWII
Finally, Call of Duty goes back in time and "starts on the ground" with the last installment of Sledgehammer. Taking place during World War II, the game has ample opportunity to tell an immersive story. The story has dramatic moments peppered with superior action Call of Duty is known for. The multiplayer mode introduces "Headquarters", which is the central axis where players can meet before the game begins. The new multiplayer mode called "War" brings multiplayer games based on objectives in the fold of the franchise Call of Duty never seen before. It forces teammates to work together instead of focusing on themselves like any other party. Nazi Zombies, on the other hand, returns the horror to the franchise. Treyarch zombie fans should feel at home with some new additions thrown into the mix that do not negatively change the Zombies formula of past installations. If you like Call of Duty, take this.
5. Person 5
Person 5 is the JRPG you can obtain. The group you play, the Phantom Thieves, are transported to a world like yours in many ways, but it is full of darker secrets than ever before. With incredible writing, characters full of flesh and creative turn-based combat, the series is at an all time high. If you have more than 50 free hours and you love JRPGs, definitely give the game a chance.
6. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus
MachineGames has done it again. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, expands from the previous installment by adding more weapons, explosions and chaos. With a surprising in-depth story, Wolfenstein builds from the first game and adds more to the fold as a sequel. With a precise weapon mechanics and a fun level design, it is a game that should not be overlooked.
7. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
The launch game for Nintendo Switch has been claimed as the best Zelda of all time and leader as the Game of the Year candidate. Breath of the Wild feels like the best collection, but it becomes your own game with an open immersive world, loose goals and many sanctuaries to discover and complete. It is definitely a Zelda game that should not be missed and a game in which players can spend countless hours. Especially because the Nintendo Switch is a portable system, it is a primetime game for long winter trips to visit the family or the boring hours between Christmas.
