Most games that hand you a sword and point you in the direction of a battalion of foes feel empowering and heroic. After a few rounds of Mordhau, the prospect of heading once more into the breach seemed more terrifying than anything else. Of all the multiplayer melee games I?ve played over the years, this one has decidedly the highest skill cap and the least patience for those who haven?t taken the time to learn its complex, twitch-based combat. The upside to that is when you do go on a hot streak, you feel like way more of a badass than any of those more forgiving games can ever let you feel.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
Valve’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) debuted in 2012, backed by a strong heritage of multiplayer FPS titles, including the original Counter-Strike and Counter-Strike: Source. Now, six years later, the fast-paced still mostly holds its own against more modern titles, partly because of its established core gameplay and active community. Visually, however, CS: GO is starting to show its age and it’s not as thematically rich as other popular titles, such as Overwatch. Still, many players will enjoy CS: GO’s no-frills experience and competitive scene.
Fortnite has a simple concept when you think about it: 100 players enter, but only one is crowned the victor. Everyone goes in with the hopes of being Rambo; fending off 99 other players until all that?s left is the delectable taste of victory. That isn?t always the case, though. In reality, it?s more akin to being an expendable soldier in Predator. No matter how hard you try, there?s always that one guy hiding in a bush with a sniper ready to clock you when you run past.
League of Legends
Like most MOBAs, League of Legends? main attraction is its five-on-five matches on its staple three-lane map. Called?Summoner’s Rift, this map is brightly and colorfully designed, and it creates a distinct playstyle with the way its dense brush allows you to conceal yourself and surprise enemies. It?s a constant temptation to risk venturing into the other team?s territory to attempt to steal their buffs. The choice between engaging the other team directly or attacking their resources allows for interesting strategies and depth beyond simply fighting until one Champion or turret is dead.

Borderlands 2 GOTY Edition
With Borderlands 3 being just around the corner now, it’s perfect timing to jump back into the world of pandora with the vault hunters to jog your memory of the story. Borderlands 2 is a first-person shooter that randomly generates the guns you find, varying damage values, clip sizes, accuracy, and even how many bullets they fire at once. It’s built like an RPG: you level up by killing things, improve your character’s abilities, and find higher-level guns to kill higher-level beasts and bandits on a rocky, backwater planet.
Rainbow Six Siege
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege brings a new level of tension to the hardcore tactical shooter franchise. Inspired by the reality of counter-terrorist operatives across the world, Rainbow 6 Siege invites players to master the art of destruction. Intense close quarters confrontations, high lethality, tactics, team play, and explosive action are at the center of the experience. For the first time in a Tom Clancy?s Rainbow Six game, players will engage in sieges, a new style of assault where enemies have the means to transform their environments into modern strongholds while Rainbow Six teams lead the assault to breach the enemy?s position. Rainbow Six Siege gives players unprecedented control over their ability to fortify their position — by reinforcing walls and floors, using barbed wire, deployable shields, and mines, and more — or breach the enemies? using observation drones, sheet charges, rappelling, and more.
Grand Theft Auto: V
Grand Theft Auto V is still a thriving online game in the year of 2019! Despite being initially released way back in 2013. You can still pick up this game and enjoy some regular updates and great content.
Grand Theft Auto V is also an intelligent, wickedly comic, and bitingly relevant commentary on contemporary, post-economic crisis America. Everything about it drips satire: it rips into the Millennial generation, celebrities, the far right, the far left, the middle class, the media… Nothing is safe from Rockstar?s sharp tongue, including modern video games.
So I hope that you all own a few of these games and if not, go out and purchase them to see for yourselves! If you’re interested in buying a gaming pc to enjoy one of these amazing titles. Check out our store by pressing the button below.
