Best Multiplayer Games To Play In 2020

Nothing compares to a good time spent with your friends in real life. But if you just don’t feel to get out of your home, you can still have a good time and have a laugh with your friends. How? The answer is easy, by playing multiplayer games. These are fun activities that can bring your friends’ group together to talk and do something active.

Online multiplayer games have many benefits. First of all, you don’t have to be in the same place. Therefore you can catch up with your friends abroad. Secondly, you can take a break anytime. So if you have something more important to do you can do that and later rejoin your friends. You don’t even need a good setup for these games. Some of the games can be played even on the phone.

Among Us

The game was released back in 2018 but got a huge hype when some of the most famous YouTubers like Pewdiepie, Jacksepticeye, Toast, Pokimane started to play it. The whole game concept is based on the popular mafia party game, where there are 1 or 2 malicious players (the mafia) and the rest of the players (the town) have to find out who are those.

The InnerSloth company, which released Among Us, took this idea to the next level. The whole games are played in space, where the crewmates are supposed to be the good guys, and the impostors try to wipe out the whole crewmates one by one. The number ratio of the crewmates and the impostors are based on the number of players.

To make the game more exciting, InnerSloth is adding new features such as a new map based on the cockpit of the Toppat Clan featured in Infiltrating the Airship, one of the games in their Henry Stickmin Collection.

Requirements:

This game doesn’t require a significant PC requirement, only 1GB RAM and 250MB free space. Neither does it require good reflexes or good aim like in an FPS game from you. You only need to have negotiating skills and a good tactic. By default, you can only communicate with a chat, but it can be boring only to type. So the best way to communicate is to create a discord room and talk freely through a microphone.

Minecraft

I believe that this game doesn’t need much introduction. It was played a few years ago, and it was almost forgotten, but now somehow the good old Minecraft got some updates and became popular again. Besides creativity, the game has some missions as well, which makes it more interesting. It might seem an easy game, but in fact, It’s quite challenging to create a whole new world and to get all the resources for them. That’s why it’s better to play with friends. You can divide tasks among you and concentrate on certain things. And don’t worry, the game gives you enough freedom to fool around beside the hard work.

Requirements:

The game runs best at 4GB RAM. This game is preferred for those who have enough creativity and good vision to create buildings and other pieces of art from bricks.

FPS Games

First Person Shooter Games never got out from trends. Back then you had only one option, the Counter-Strike 1.6. But now the possibilities are limitless. There are many games with different types like Team Survival, Defuse the bomb, Battle royal, etc. in many different styles. There are more realistic ones like Call of Duty: Warzone, or more unrealistic sci-fi-like like Fortnite.

Usually, these games are preferred by real nerds who spend most of their time in front of the computer. These games require excellent skills like good reflex, vision, in-depth game knowledge and tactics as well. Just to mention some of the most played and liked FPS games: Fortnite, COD: Warzone, PUBG, Valorant, Overwatch, Apex Legends. Most of these games are free to play so you can try them out one by one and then choose one yo play with your friends. Because these games are best played with others, you can have fun alone too, but with a good team, there is nobody to stop you.

Requirements:

These games have some more serious requirements. You will need at least 8GB RAM, at least 50 GB of free space and a good video card if you want to play these games smoothly. Also, it’s not a bad idea to have a good headset as well, so you can communicate better with your friends.

Online Casino

If you want an Old-School game you can try out even a casino game. It may not be that exciting or fast-moving, but the best stories are always told by holding some cards in your hand. And why shouldn’t be the same in the online world?

There are many sites and games to choose from. You can play poker online, blackjack online, bridge online. The options are limitless. These games can be played even in your free time at any time, even from your phone.

If you can chat somehow with the others during the hands, you can develop some social skills during these games. Also, your negotiation skills can become better if you become an experienced casino player.

Requirements:

Since they are online games, you only need a browser for them, no much RAM required, and it doesn’t take up free space from your computer.
