Being in quarantine can get pretty boring pretty fast. After the initial joy of being off from work for a period of time and able to lounge around the house, it soon becomes clear that we need things to do to make the time feel worth it.
If you are like many of us and can’t remember what day it is anymore, we have some addictive games for you to try that will make your quarantine days go quicker.
PlayStation has been a huge advocate for the safety of their players since the start of lockdown, and this is why they launched a campaign #playathome where they provided the whole uncharted series for free to all players.

These games are beautifully made and aesthetically stunning and will immerse you in a whole new realm.

Decorate your house and town, plant trees and flowers, catch fish and bugs, and pay your mortgage through this addictively cathartic game.
Now, stay with us. It might seem counter-intuitive to think of playing Pokemon Go during lockdown, since the game’s aim was to make people exercise. However, since the lockdown Pokemon Go has put a lot of work into the safety of fun of their trainers and they have released several events and remote passes that allow players to get the most out of the game while sitting at home. For the month of May, they have timed events that span all Pokemon generations to allow players to collect some of the Pokemon they have never managed to before.
