The Covid-19 pandemic has taken a heavy toll on most people around the world. With lockdowns come the obligation to spend days at home without being able to see family and friends. As such, many people have turned to gaming to escape. Here are some of the most popular games to play during the pandemic.

Among Us

The success of “Among Us” in 2020 was a big surprise for the industry. By November, the game had been downloaded over 500 million times. The title takes place on a space ship and players are divided into crewmates and imposters. The latter will have to devise ways to get rid of the others without being noticed.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Today, “Animal Crossing: New Horizons” needs no introduction. Released in March of last year, the Nintendo Switch game has experienced a huge success. With a simple gameplay about exploring and taking care of an island, it appealed to a wide audience.

Ring Fit Adventure

If working out and playing video games are usually two contradicting activities, “Ring Fit Adventure” brings them together. With gyms closed, the fitness title is a great way to stay in shape.
