Every year, a huge batch of new, thrilling and interesting online games are released. So much so, that it can be hard to know which are the best to play and which you should avoid! However, here is a list of which online PC games you should start getting excited about in 2016. Of course, don’t forget about fantastic mobile games, as a list we published here are mobile games still worth checking out.
This is a FPS (first-person shooter) probably unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. With a tagline that reads “time moves only when you move,” SUPERHOT has some of the most unique gameplay seen in a long time. A demo was released late 2013, and took the online gaming world by storm. Although the graphics weren’t much to shout about, it was indeed the game’s novelty of being able to manipulate time that really made it shine.
Playing as an unknown spy or soldier (someone with a gun essentially), you must move through rooms and corridors and shoot your way out. Faceless enemies will fire their own weapons at you, but the ability to freeze time and witness the trajectory of the bullets means that you can swiftly dodge out of the way and find a safe place to fire back. Not a walk in the park by any means, SUPERHOT is still challenging and you’ll find yourself at the beginning of the level time and time again.
Due to SUPERHOT’s favorable reaction from gamers, a full version of the title will be available on PC and Xbox One in the very near future. In the meantime, you can play the prototype here, or watch the trailer for SUPERHOT below.
League of Legends
To be fair, League of Legends isn’t a new game as such, as it was first released around 2009. However, the third-person MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) game’s popularity has been steadily rising each year, with around 67 million gamers playing League of Legends every month. By teaming up with an online payment option known as paysafecard, which can be used without credit card or bank account details, League of Legends has been able to reach a large spectrum of gamers of all ages.
With four distinctive gaming modes (Summoner’s Rift, Twisted Treeline, Crystal Scar, and Howling Abyss) to sink your teeth into, the fun and frantic action on League of Legends is due to its massive host of colorful characters, known as ‘champions’. Each champion has their own set of particular skills and tricks to use on the battlefield, and the more you play, the more powerful and dangerous your character will become. Depending on your preference, you can play as a man, woman, demon, ghost, wolf, dragon…the list goes on. But keep in mind, every champion is as deadly as the last!
League of Legends’ fame has even resulted in its admission into the e-sports world, whereby fans of the game can watch other people play (who are incredibly skilled) online or even in an arena. Real money and success can actually be found in playing online games! You can download League of Legends for free here, and take a look at the gameplay in a video below.
