As the temperatures plummet and the days get shorter, you’re probably spending more time indoors. Video games are one of the best winter activities, allowing you to explore new worlds without leaving your couch. It’s a great time to catch up on time-consuming games that you didn’t have time to play earlier in the year.

Since it’s cold outside, you’ll probably want to cozy up in your blanket and sip on a warm beverage to really set the mood. Read on to learn about some of the best games to play this winter.

Casual Games

While winter is a great time to explore games with long storylines and large open worlds, sometimes you may want to play games in short bursts. Casual games are attractive because they don’t have much of a learning curve, and you probably have played many of them in the offline world.

If you enjoy casino games, there are a lot to choose from online. Some of the best US slots are available online, eliminating the need to travel to a land-based casino when it’s cold out. That’s not all; casual games like Candy Crush Saga, One More Line, and Grindstone will keep you occupied while indoors.

Role Playing Games (RPG)

If you’ll have a lot of time on your hands this winter, RPGs are the way to go. As the name suggests, RPGs are some of the most immersive games available. You take control of a character and gain experience points, allowing them to level up.

You’ll tackle increasingly challenging scenarios as your character gets stronger. The crux of these games involves exploring worlds, completing quests, finding items, and fighting. If you find you enjoy this genre, upgrading to a gaming laptop can make your experience even better.

Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MMORPG)


MMORPGs share a lot in common with RPGs, throwing you into an expansive, immersive world. Instead of playing alone, you’ll share the experience with gamers worldwide. World of Warcraft is the most famous game in this genre.

Collaborating with others online changes the dynamic and gameplay, allowing others to help you take down powerful bosses. So, if you’re a fan of RPGs, you may want to check out MMORPGs too.

Massively Multiplayer Online Games (MMO)

A fun alternative to MMORPGs are MMO games like PUBG and Fortnite. Battle Royale titles are among the most popular at the moment. There are many sub-genres within the MMO genre, with the common thread being you’ll play with a lot of people online at the same time.

Action Games

Jumping, fighting, and shooting are among the activities you’ll engage in while playing action games. These games require excellent hand-eye coordination as your character goes through a series of challenges to get to the next level.

If you’ve played platformers like SuperMario odyssey and Sonic Forces 3D, you’re already familiar with the genre. Shooters like Halo Infinite are also action-based games and are available n first-person shooter and third-person shooter formats. 2D games like Defender, Cuphead, and Galaga also fall under the action game genre.
