The current trend in the Gaming Industry may show that there is a sharp decline in single-player games. Making your own squad, jumping online to indulge in multi-player experience has become the key of Gaming boom. But there is still a certain subset of Gamers who enjoy solo gaming experience.
During COVID-19 sitting idle at home, people are making the most out of their time. Solo gaming gives a unique space for players to vent out their feelings and of course have some good time. So in spite of playing the same old boring games, there are few which can bring an extraordinary single playing experience. From VR to larger than life world here are some picks
Grand Theft Auto: The New Hang Out
Grand Theft Auto, a series of action-adventure games are set in fictional locales modelled on Real cities. The game has Liberty City, Vice City, and San Andreas, which are stand-ins for New York City, Miami and the state of California, respectively. Don’t be surprised if you see the GTA Punjab as well in the torrents.
In essence, GTA V – like Minecraft, Roblox, Counter-Strike – has become a place to hang out. It is a venue, rather than a game. Unlike in previous hardware generations, where players simply bought sequels to experience favourite titles again. We’re now in an age where single iterations can be remodelled and reequipped with successive machines and weapons.
