Recently, Nintendo announced that it would be ending online support for 3DS and Wii U games. Along with the closure of the 3DS eShop earlier this year, the announcement effectively marked the final end of the 3DS and Wii U era; of course, no new games were being produced for the consoles, but this feels very much like the final nail, so to speak. With that in mind, then, this feels like the perfect time to reminisce about the 3DS’ exceptional library. Some truly excellent games were produced for Nintendo’s handheld, many of which you can still find if you’re…

Dark and Darker is a pretty ingenious combination of genres. The game is simultaneously a fantasy dungeon crawler and a PvPvE-style multiplayer game in which you’re just as much at risk from other players as you are from environmental hazards. With that in mind, if you’re looking for an experience akin to Dark and Darker, you might struggle, as it’s a very unique prospect. However, there are plenty of games you can check out if you’re looking for something that’s in the same ballpark. Here are the 20 best games like Dark and Darker!

2048 is a rather unique and absorbing puzzle game, which, admittedly, makes writing a list of similar games somewhat difficult. If you’ve never played it, you should give it a shot; 2048 is fiendishly addictive, despite its simple setup, meaning you can easily lose hours of your life to it. However, if you’ve decided to seek your puzzle pleasures elsewhere, you will find games that might scratch the same itch. Here are the 20 best games like 2048 to play right now. 1. Threes! Of all the games like 2048 out there, Threes! is probably the most similar. Much like…

When it comes to living out impossible fantasies, there are few game genres quite as successful as the flight simulator.

The Meta Quest 3 is officially upon us, and it’s arguably the best VR headset you can buy right now. While it can’t quite match many of its competitors in terms of sheer power, it’s affordable, lightweight (for a VR headset, at any rate), and packed with great software.

Popular culture has long been obsessed with vampires, and it’s pretty easy to see why. In some incarnations, vampires are dark, mysterious figures with an air of dangerous romance about them, while in others, they’re horrifying monstrosities that represent the worst instincts and aspects of humanity. If you’ve got a thirst for great vampire games, read on. Here, in no particular order, are the 20 best vampire games out there right now. Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines It’s no great secret that Troika’s ambitious action RPG wasn’t quite ready for the market when it was released. As such, playing Vampire:…

With a new console comes a selection of new games while a new console launch is exciting, ultimately, it means nothing if there is nothing fun and cool to play on it on day one. Today we have spent a considerable amount of time coming up with a list of what we feel are the top 10 video game launch titles of all time! This was a very hard list to put together, especially to rank them in order. We decided to go for games that we felt were great to play, but also titles that we felt helped sell…

We all have had that experience when we are enjoying our video game until we stumble across a level that will be extremely challenging and hard to beat because of the enemies, the map itself, or even the objectives. Overcoming a challenge is always good and when you are able to finish a hard and punishing level, you know you are better than before. Hard and complex levels in video game are a double-edged sword; they give more immersion and importance to the video games but they can annoy the player if they don’t like challenges. These are ranking the…

Being a Mac gamer can sometimes be a rather difficult proposition. While PC gamers get a ton of options and lots of ways to upgrade their machines, Apple has traditionally been much more reticent with allowing Mac owners to fiddle under the hood, and many newer games just aren’t supported on Mac. That’s not to say that nothing is coming out in 2023 that you can play on your Mac, of course; if you know where to look and you’re happy to leave your comfort zone to try out new genres, there are some great Mac games you can play.…

Some video games engage on a cerebral level; they’re all about challenging your intellect and your powers of deduction, observation, or logic. Others, meanwhile, are all about the visceral thrill, the simple adrenaline rush of a core gameplay loop executed perfectly. Into this second category falls the humble racing game, or so you might think. Whilst Mac might not have anywhere near the same amount of games as PC, there are some great games to play on Mac. The fact is that racing games are actually a lot smarter than many give them credit for. They’re about pure thrills, yes,…

In 2022, From Software released Elden Ring, which many consider to be the legendary Japanese studio’s masterpiece. Combining From’s signature Soulslike combat and exploration with a new open-world approach that emphasised player discovery, Elden Ring went on to become a massive critical and commercial success. Being a Soulslike game, developed by From Software, Elden Ring also has a pretty significant multiplayer component in which players can team up to battle bosses. Alternatively, if players are feeling particularly devilish, they can invade one another’s realms and do battle. Will you face your opponent in honourable combat, or backstab them while they’re…

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…
