Most of us right now are staying indoors due to the pandemic. Because of strict guidelines to help curb the infection, most people don’t have anything to do. We all just have to wait out the pandemic brought on by COVID-19.
Luckily, we have science and technology on our side. Science and the medical world are scrambling to find a cure or a vaccine that is gladly on its way.
Technology, on the other hand, makes the stay indoors more bearable. Even though we can’t interact with our friends through physical contact, we can still use our phones and computers.
As such, most of us watch movies, read books, listen to music, etc. while waiting. However, for a more immersive experience, some people play video games.
Multiplayer games such as DOTA 2, PUBG, Call of Duty, and Fortnite are great if you want to play with other players from all over the world.
However, you might encounter some toxic behaviour when playing online multiplayer games. If you want to relax and avoid stress, you should play single-player games. With that said, here are some of the best single-player games you can play on your pc.
