The Best Games to Play When Stuck at Home

by MAC



Social distancing means being stuck at home, which gives a lot of us some extra time to play video games and even catch up on those fickle backlogs. The IGN staff came together from our remote locations to share some suggestions of how we’re riding out our shelter-in-place orders. We tried to group up our recommended games by our respective tastes, but also by category of “mood,” if you will. Hopefully, this will spark some inspiration. Please do share your own suggestions, in list form and in accordance with your chosen “mood” in the comments below, too!
