With spring break literally around the corner, some of us need something to do to pass the time. Whether it’s while you’re in the car traveling, or if you’re just chilling at home, we all get bored at one point or another. Listed below are some games that are really fun and entertaining. The following video games are for all types of people, from great story lines and heated game play to games you could play while you are trying to relax.

First up, we have The Last of Us Part II. This game not only has a great storyline but the gameplay is some of the best that I have ever played. However, this is a game only for PlayStation 4 players. The story line follows two strong female characters, who are Ellie and Abby who are both after the same thing. They want the ones that they love to be safe. This is especially difficult, because they are living in a post-apocalyptic world. Not only do they have to fight with each other to survive but they also have to fight infected other people. I will give a warning and say that this game has violence, language, and other forms of mature themes. So, if you’re not able to handle that I would not suggest this game. This is a fantastic, enjoyable game.

Following at a close second is Cuphead. This is a multiplayer game that you are not only able to play online, but you can play with your friends at home as well. Cuphead might make you want to throw your controller out of the window. This game follows two characters named Cuphead and Mugman. The two characters have made a deal with the devil and now have to collect the souls of other characters. This game is very intense, however it is a very addicting game.

The next game is Call of Duty: Vanguard. We all know that Call of Duty is a multiplayer game that you could play with your friends, but this is the newest one. Call of Duty is co-op that you can play online or with your friends in real time. This is also another game that gets very intense and might make you hate your friends. You are able to play this game on Xbox as well as Playstation. But, this is a fun way to stay in touch with your friends over the break.

Next up is a classic. We all know and love Minecraft. There is no need to go into description about this game because we all know how it goes. This is another game that you can play online with your friends or in real life once again. This game is about building and fighting all kinds of creatures for survival. This game has been around for so long, and it is here to stay. You can play this game on any platform that you own. So, don’t get caught by a creeper and good luck with your survival.

And last but not least, you have Unpacking. This game is a very cute and relaxing game. It follows the storyline of a girl who we follow until she grows up. At each stage of her life, we get to follow along with her and unpack everything she owns at every age she hits. This is a very cute game. However, you do have to make sure that you put everything in its place every time. The storyline is very realistic, and it is very interesting to follow her and watch her grow up. You can play this game on steam and some other platforms. This is a game for anyone who does not like to play stressful games.

With these games, you will never get bored. We have something for everyone. We have relaxing games and intense games with great storylines. All of these games are amazing and you will never get bored. I hope these help you with your boredom over the break and you enjoy this list.
