Games That Will Pull You Out From the Depths of Boredom


In a year of living a pandemic life, there is one thing that we collectively try our hardest to beat: boredom. Stuck in the confines of our home, our computers or laptops become our best friends as aspects of our lives suddenly shift into an online setting from classes, social events, to jobs. Having tried new things at the start of quarantine, growing a garden, trying out trendy coffee recipes, what more can we do?

We go back to our computers and play games. Our devices are avenues not just for boring work load but also for entertaining and enjoyable games that will get us hooked up. I personally can say that a lot of games helped me fill up the hours of my day. The following games are what I always turn on to when I find myself getting bored:

Genshin Impact

This is a role-playing game that lets you go on an adventure in an open world, which they call Teyvat. This game can be played on a personal computer, mobile phone, or PS4.  I have been playing this one for almost eight months now, I guess it is safe to say that it got me hooked up. The soundtrack of the game is very soothing and calming which is a great pair for the amazing views of Teyvat. The stories and quests

Plays.org

This site contains a ton of games to pick from which I think is very convenient for those who want a simple interface and gameplay. The site is user-friendly as you would not have to download extra software to access it, it runs simply on a browser. It reminds me of Y8.com with its numerous categories for games.  As a fan of Y8.com, finding this site gave me nostalgia from my childhood days.

Simulation games are always the first ones I try on sites like this. I found two games that are a must-try for people with the same preference as mine in this game category: the Open Restaurant and Tap Supermarket. Both games let you manage a restaurant and supermarket respectively in a simple manner. The controls are super simple as you would only need your mouse for clicking. I can see myself visiting this site on times when I would want a quick break from workload.

Good Pizza Great Pizza

Anything related to pizza is compelling enough. This game lets you make pizzas with different combinations as requested by customers. Some even ask for customized combos such as a pizza with a happy face. It provides a simple interface and easy gameplay. This is my go-to game on my mobile device whenever I find myself bored when out on errands or when I cannot connect to any WIFI, and yes, this is an offline game.

Games are entertaining for individuals of all ages. There are different categories to choose from that may satisfy us especially on times when we feel slump and with nothing to do. These games are personal favorites which really saved me from boredom. What about you, do you have your own go-to games to make your day interesting?
