Being locked down on quarantine and adhering to social distancing mandates isn't all bad. Sure, you can't go out with friends as much. Some people may even be stuck working from home.
However, this time in quarantine has its benefits. For example, having all the downtime in the world (and an excuse) to explore new video games. If you're new to video games or have been playing for a while but don't know what games to invest in, we can help. Keep reading for our top six quarantine video game checklists.
1. God of WarThe newest God of War installment has been years in the making. This soft reboot sought to satisfy the needs of old fans and bring new light to the series.
The game takes place years after the last game ended. Kratos's wife is dead, and it leaves him to raise their son. The entire main storyline of the game centers on taking Faye's ashes up to the mountains of the Giants.
Along the way, Kratos struggles to tell his son, Atreus, that he is a half-god. God of War brings epic gameplay and engaging storytelling that began long ago as a PlayStation classic.
2. The Last of Us Remastered
Originally a PS3 game, The Last of Us was remastered several years ago to bring this iconic game to modern platforms. Taking place in a post-apocalyptic era, The Last of Us follows Joel and Ellie, an unlikely duo. They travel the dystopian world searching for answers to the pandemic that has lead to a zombie infestation.

Players can choose from four distinct characters, each with their own special abilities and skill trees. This FPS role-playing quarantine video game has everything you want from binge-worthy video games, including tons of downloadable content.
4. The Witcher 3
The Witcher series has long been described as some of the best Fantasy RPGs in existence. Recently, Netflix has amazingly transformed this video game series into a TV series, with the help of actor Henry Cavill.
This open-world quarantine video game is one of the largest in existence and takes you across various lands as you battle monsters and men alike.
