    "This game is a lot of fun and really simple to play. It's kind of like Grand Theft Auto meets Call of Duty Modern Warfare. The basic objective is to go around killing other opponents though with true-to-life is rendering and modern weapons it makes it that much more realistic. Me and my friends always play this on the weekends especially when we get bored and want to trash-talk each other over games."

    "This is a super fun casual game, so it’s definitely worth checking out. It’s only “multiplayer” in the sense that there’s a competitive leaderboard; you don’t play alongside other people in the actual game app. This is why I’m only giving it 3 stars for this solution; it’s a 4-star game on its own merits. Crossy Road is a theoretically simple game that’s basically a Frogger clone; you’re a chicken and you have to cross a road without being hit. However, it comes with hundreds of different levels and dozens of fun and interesting game mechanics, as well as non-chicken characters you can unlock and play as. Daily challenges keep it fresh & interesting, and it’s super easy to play for either 5 minutes or 2 hours, depending on what your schedule is. All in all I highly recommend it. "

    "VRChat is one of the most entertaining VR games out there, hands down. If you have a VR headset you must get VRChat, it is so fun to play and until you experience being in a virtual world where you can choose your own avatar, and even make your own, don't rule this game out."
