Vampire Survivors launched in late 2022 after having been in Early Access for a year or so, and it proved to be an instant hit on release. Mixing simple arcade-style gameplay with roguelike elements and a raft of unlockables, Vampire Survivors’ deceptively deep core gameplay loop brought thousands upon thousands of players into its coven. Of course, it stands to reason that such a successful game would attract imitators, and luckily, if you’re done with Vampire Survivors, there are tons of games you can try out in its place. Here, in no particular order, are the best games like Vampire…

Battlestate Games’ Escape from Tarkov is a rather unique prospect when it comes to games (which does rather hamstring us when it comes to assembling a list of similar games!). The first-person shooter is an innovative blend of player-versus-player and player-versus-environment combat, with players contending with both bandits roaming the map and fellow players looking to emerge victorious. As you can imagine, playing Escape from Tarkov is a tense but thrilling experience, and there aren’t too many games that can come close to offering a similar adrenaline rush. Thankfully, though, you do have options if you want something similar but…

If there’s one gaming genre that can convince non-converts that the genre isn’t just for kids, it’s probably the erotic adventure genre. With beginnings all the way back in the early days of gaming, erotic video games have established a niche for themselves, and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. Perhaps one of the most popular and well-known games in this niche is Degrees of Lewdity, a text-based erotic RPG that allows you to engage with its seedy world in whatever way you see fit. There are, of course, plenty of games out there that are doing similar things to…

When Untitled Goose Game was released in 2019, it became an instant hit, largely thanks to the meme potential of its main character. The adorable little goose that runs around causing mischief and mayhem quickly found itself being incorporated into memes of all stripes, from nihilistic comedy to political satire. All of this exposure overshadowed the fact that Untitled Goose Game is great fun in its own right, but if you’ve played it, you’ll probably already be aware of that. Untitled Goose Game is a pretty unique proposition, but if you’re willing to branch out a little, you’ll find games…

If you’ve ever had a party where the guests are primarily millennials, then you’ve almost certainly played Cards Against Humanity before. This card game is hugely popular among younger folks, and for good reason. The basic premise of Cards Against Humanity is pretty simple: players must match up a statement on their card to a prompt, and the funnier the result, the better. Naturally, Cards Against Humanity can be extremely subjective; if you’re playing with the right people, it can be an absolute riot, but play with the wrong crowd and it can be excruciating. If you’re looking to branch…

Castle Crashers is arguably one of the best games of its genre. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s a side-scrolling beat-’em-up with a distinctly cartoonish art style and a sense of humour, and what’s more, it’s built around multiplayer, so you can enjoy it alongside friends. Of course, if you’re a fan of the genre, you’ve probably already made your way through all of the content Castle Crashers has to offer, and you’re hungry for more of the same. If that’s the case, you’ll be pleased to know there are tons of great beat-’em-ups out there, and you won’t have to look…

VR has many potential applications, but perhaps one of the most exciting is its ability to immerse us in massive virtual worlds. The potential of VR when it comes to MMORPGs has arguably not been fully realised yet, but developers are already starting to take advantage of the capabilities of VR to create massively multiplayer games with the tech in mind. Many of these games are still on the horizon, but some are available right now. There aren’t a huge amount of VR MMORPG experiences to play at the moment, but we’d like to take some time to look at…

Usually, we know who is the villain from the start. The antagonist is introduced at the beginning to let us know who is he/she and what his/her ambitions are But, there are some cases where the game doesn’t tell us who is the villain until it is revealed as a form of plot twist. In some cases, we meet the villain early in the came without knowing, in other cases we are the villain, and more. Today we are going to select 10 antagonists that surprised us when he or she was revealed as the villain, so let’s begin! 10.…

Rockstar is officially working on Grand Theft Auto 6. It will arrive in 2025, and we couldn’t be more excited. We still don’t know what to expect fully yet, but Vice City is returning! At time of writing, it’s been ten years since the release of the last tentpole Grand Theft Auto release (not counting various GTA Online updates and content drops, of course), and that’s far too long as far as we’re concerned. 2018’s Red Dead Redemption 2 gave us the traditional Rockstar-style sandbox we’d been hoping for, but any GTA fan will tell you that Red Dead simply…

The thrill of playing a great tycoon game is unmatched by any other genre, as fans will attest. There’s just something inescapably compelling about building your very own empire from scratch, overseeing everything from construction to political policies and watching your carefully-laid plans come to fruition. Equally, though, it’s just as fun when tycoon games go wrong, and everything you’ve built comes crashing down in a single instant thanks to some errant natural disaster or revolutionary uprising. The Mac might not be the best platform in the world for gaming, but tycoon games for Mac do exist, so without further…

As the spooky season drifts away and the holiday season rolls into view, Xbox gamers will probably be looking for something else to play that isn’t Starfield. Bethesda’s RPG may be a mammoth prospect, but those who love Starfield have probably seen much of the content it has to offer already, while those who were disappointed are likely seeking fresh entertainment. Luckily, the holiday season is usually a pretty rich time for new releases, and such is the case for November 2023, where you’ll find major franchise instalments and indie curios alike. Let’s take a look at the best Xbox…

Cities: Skylines is one of the most well-loved city-builder games out there. Since EA dropped the ball so dramatically with 2013’s SimCity, Paradox was able to swoop in and claim that game’s disgruntled fanbase, which was looking for an in-depth city-builder that respected their time and money. That’s exactly what the original Cities: Skylines was, and since then, the game has gone from strength to strength, with tons of expansion packs and DLC being created over the years. All good things must come to an end, though, and so Paradox has finally decided to move on and create a brand…

Another year has almost gone by, and at time of writing, there’s still no sign of a potential Nintendo Switch successor. The console is still going strong, and Nintendo probably doesn’t want to rock the boat; the sales figures for the Switch are phenomenal, and a successor could detract from that. Still, it is fair to say that when the Switch becomes the topic of conversation now, many people want to know when a new machine might be on the way, so hopefully, Nintendo announces something soon. In the meantime, though, the Switch is still riding high, and there are…

What makes a great video game villain? Maybe heroes need to be invincible, but they also need a counterpart to drag them to their extremities. What we want is for an unstoppable force to meet an immovable object. So, whoever it is, they need to arrive with an impact and stir up a chaotic maelstrom of events. Then it’s that swirling spiral of good and evil, which spins those epic rivalries and recurring battles we remember. In this blog, we’re taking a look at some of those gaming villains who transformed the titles they were part of. Cartoonish creatures, narcissistic cowboys,…

Whether you’re a PlayStation pro or an Xbox expert (or, indeed, a Nintendo know-it-all), you’ll probably agree that gaming is in a strong spot right now. With huge titles available on all three competing ecosystems, as well as subscription services bringing even more value to the table, gamers have more choice than they ever have when it comes to entertainment. Of course, change is inevitable in the gaming world, and sooner or later, the next generation of gaming will loom large, even though it’ll likely feel like the current generation is still just getting started. Here are 15 things we…

When video games first began appearing on the market, they were severely constrained by the technology available at the time. Although many games had unique stories that drew players in, the visual manner in which these stories were displayed was often underwhelming. However, as technology advanced, games evolved to offer striking and immersive graphics that pushed the technology of their respective platforms to the limit. Thanks to this evolution in technology and the skill of game designers, many titles nowadays might make you wonder whether you’re playing a game or watching real-world footage. The following games in particular feature exceptionally…

Earlier this month (at time of writing), Sony announced what many people had been waiting for: a mid-generation PS5 design refresh. However, before you get too excited, there are a couple of caveats. The new design’s internals aren’t meaningfully different, and if you happen to be in the USA and you want to get your hands on a new PS5, you’re going to be paying a little more, too. So, what exactly is the new PS5 design? What can you expect from it, and how much will it cost? Let’s take a look at everything you need to know about…

Some new releases don’t disappoint. One game that was eagerly awaited was Overwatch 2. And boy, it didn’t disappoint! Millions of people log on every day to have a piece of the action, including us! Overwatch 1 had a big following, and lots of fans were worried the updated game would pale in comparison. They needn’t have worried. Blizzard smashed it. Overwatch 2 is free for all players and is on most platforms. But one thing that lots of gamers ask (and you probably are too), is Overwatch 2 cross platform? Don’t worry, we have got you covered.

Role-playing games are some of the most popular in the gaming world, especially the ones which support online play and real-time play. One game that lets players act out their fantasies of being a hero online is Diablo 4. One of Blizzards’ games, it ticks all the boxes. The graphics are some of the best around and the immersive storylines have had us all gripped. But can you play it cross platform?   What is Diablo 4? As you have probably guessed by the name, there have been 3 other Diablo games in the series, as well as some expansion…

DLCs are helpful in some cases because they can extend video games even further because video games can’t last forever, we all know that. But despite that, DLCs are still considered one of the most controversial in gaming history. Yeah, some DLCs are extremely good and can give you more new experiences but what happens when the developers drop a promising DLC but at the end it is something extremely bad or worthless? You lose your money and the outrage begins. This is why we are here right now. These are the 10 worst DLCs in gaming of all time.…

It’s not just children who love to play at being wizards and elves, dreaming they are off fighting scary monsters. You probably think only children love playing this type of game but adults love playing , too. We certainly do! Half a century after its release, Dungeons and Dragons is so much more than just a tabletop game about a magical world. There are now computer games and even a recent film. Some people have even written books that take place there. A popular game is Neverwinter. This is an MMORPG that players can only play online. Lots of games…

If there’s one thing that’s setting the rumour mill aflame in the gaming world right now (not to mix metaphors), it’s the Nintendo Switch 2. Whatever Nintendo ends up calling the successor to the Nintendo Switch, it’s got some huge shoes to fill; the Switch is sitting at almost 130 million consoles sold worldwide at time of writing, and that number is only going to increase with time. Of course, that hasn’t stopped gamers and pundits alike looking ahead to what the Switch 2 might look like. After all, the Switch is a wonderful machine, but it’s also somewhat underpowered,…

October 2023 is shaping up to be an excellent month for the Nintendo Switch, not least because we’re finally getting a new game from one of Nintendo’s longest-standing mascots.

The launch of Starfield on Xbox in September represents something of a watershed moment for Microsoft.  The company had arguably been struggling for bona fide exclusives, and although Starfield is playable on PC as well, if you’re a console gamer, you can only enter the world of Bethesda’s newest RPG on Xbox Series X/S. Could this be the beginning of a revival for Microsoft’s fortunes? In the long run, that remains to be seen, but October is looking like another great month for the Xbox ecosystem. Let’s take a look at the best Xbox Series X/S games heading your way…

“Underrated” is a very strange word indeed. It has different definitions for different people; some define it in terms of reviews, while others look to sales to justify calling a game underrated. We’re about to take a look at the 10 most underrated Xbox Series X/S games, and our definition of “underrated” may seem somewhat nebulous, but in essence, if we feel that a game has been unfairly overlooked in any terms, it fits the bill as far as we’re concerned. With that in mind, take this list of the 10 most underrated Xbox Series games as a chance to…

Many of us have fantasies about joining the police force when we’re kids. We think of the police as bringing in the bad guys, stopping society from falling apart, and keeping all of us safe at night. Of course, the reality is much more complicated than that, as we’ve learned recently, but that doesn’t mean there is no room for good police simulator games to teach us about the realities of policing or just plain fun experiences in which you play as a police officer. Are you ready to discover the best police simulator games to play? Below, we reveal…

It’s September and the year is almost finishing, but that does not mean that we must be sad; it’s quite the opposite, because usually the best video games or the biggest surprised are released in the last months of the year. This year has been absurdly good in terms of video games, and the best thing is that despite we are in the final months of the year, a lot of AAA video games will be release in the next 3 months, and that is exactly today’s topic. Today we are going to rank the 10 best upcoming video games…

Rare’s 2006 life sim Viva Pinata is a unique beast, which, we admit, is not the strongest start for an article discussing similar games. The principle is simple: you must attract pinata animals to your garden, and you’ll do so via a variety of different means, including planting grass, adding ponds, or even letting them eat other pinatas that have taken up residence. Viva Pinata and its sequel, Trouble in Paradise, espoused a strange atmosphere that balanced adorable pinatas with brutal kill-or-be-killed food-chain simulation. It stands to reason, then, that there aren’t too many games out there that are strikingly…

One of the main reasons why a videogame can get tattooed in your mind is because the first mission. It’s not necessary that a good videogame should have a great opening level, but it is a very nice and important touch, because this will be the first thing the gamer will experience the moment they start the single player mode. While right now most games are less structured around levels, there are a lot of opening missions that will be remembered forever for being so good. This is the topic of today boys, so this is our top 10 best…
