Let’s make use of this special confinement period to make friends from all over the world through your phone!

Who does not like mobile games honestly??! I think most of us play different games during our free time. We couldn’t help but spend time on mobile, PlayStation, Xbox, etc. Hence these games sales volume were shooting up like crazy during this special period of a lifetime, thanks to coronavirus 😛

There are also some gaming enthusiasts who make videos and live-stream themselves playing these interesting games on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch. A lot of them got famous from these games and earn a lot being the famous Youtuber or other Live-streamer.

Are you interested to know what are the games that people play and meet a lot of people from all over the world? Let’s start:-

  1. Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG MOBILE)

I’m one of the PUBG fans. There is both mobile and PC version. PUBG is a game about the Survival of the fittest. It is quite similar to the movie “Hunger Games”. The game started with 100 players gathered in a specific map of the game. You can either play individually or play with a dedicated team. At launch, all players start from scratch, i.e. no weapons, no ammunition, and sometimes no clothes too. While you are on the plane, you have to choose a specific point to land. Then your job is to collect as many resources as you can, such as ammunition, weapons, clothes and everything you see useful to prepare yourself. Then you must go to a specific point in the meeting. If you fail to do so, the magnetic field at the surrounding area called the Zone will eliminate you. During your career, you will encounter the other 99 players at different times. You have to eliminate every enemy. The last one who stays alive will win the game and get a chicken dinner. Haha.

PUBG has gained large popularity among all players in the world. There is always something new in the game, a new danger, new weapons, or unexpected encounters of enemies who are there to kill you off. Whether you are a gaming fanatic or new to the game, you will love the game. The game is super addictive. A lot of us who play this game often found their friends or colleagues in the process of playing it, and then realize everyone is playing the game! Some of my friends who were not on the game would soon be lured into trying the game and start playing it. Then we started forming allies and go and win the game. In short, you would end up spending a lot of time in the game, virtually, with your friends. Be warned 🙂


  1. League of Legends (LoL)

League of Legends is more popular than PUBG here in the Philippines. There are also both mobile and PC version. LoL is popular because it is very easy to play.

In the game, you can form a team of 5 players fighting against 5 other players. We can choose our own “Hero” that we want to represent us as a player in the game. There are various types of historical figures and legendary hero designs for you to choose as your hero.

You have to use tactical control on the screen to finish off enemy fortifications while controlling your hero and improving your own court. You will join your friends in a confrontation against real human opponents in this game! Choose your favorite heroes and build the perfect team with your fellow gunmen! Do not give your opponent a chance to attack you and kill your hero to win the game.

  1. Fortnite

Fortnite is only available in PlayStation or PC (No mobile version). It is similar to the #1 PUBG survival game. This is the best action game you can download on your computer! For this game, you can play alone, or you can play in a team with up to 4 players.

At launch, all players are shot down from the airplane into an unknown place. You will be forced to stay and explore this place.

When you fall on the island, you must conduct a search on all buildings and collect the largest number of military points, weapons, and ammunition as you must prepare Ambushes for the enemies to fall into.

The last player (can be 1 person) or the last team remains will be the winner!


  1. Grand Theft Auto V (GTA)

Who doesn’t know this game?! I remember I was playing it since I was young and it is one of the most popular video games in the world. There is a new version now and you can play it in a completely different way as you will live real life with your friends in this game. But the Real lifestyle version can only be played on PC.

GTA is an action-adventure game where the players may freely roam in the open world, like in real life. With some modification and the introduction of new patterns by the players’ community, you are sure to be indulged in a whole new experience in a much larger world. There might mini-games within the main game to present the players with whole new experience.

The real-world version is a modification in the game that allows you to take the role of all the characters familiar in your real life, such as the police, workers, and citizens. People got more interested in overtime after the availability of many options that enable them to play different roles in the virtual world. Since the police in the city are now real players and there is punishment for violations and theft, the game presents a greater challenge and better content than ever.

And that’s how a real lifestyle works!

Relying on the main developer of this pattern, CitizenFX, who founded FiveM, provides many servers that you can access with a full description of the server’s work. Some of which may require a personal interview before allowing you to enter, which works within the rules of real-life as the police and workers are real personalities. Within the game, there are some imaginary citizens to complete the population in the city. You can buy a car, house, and driving license in case you want to live in a legal way in the city. However, if you are involving in illegal work, you must avoid the police at all times. Now that we can’t go out to the real world due to the Coronavirus, this mode in Grand Theft Auto v is getting more and more popular as it offers a dose of our past normal life.

Warning and Precautions Message about Excessive Gaming

⚠️ Warning: Take Precautions. Do not get too addicted to these games as they might consume all your time. Play in moderation only when you have free time. Most of the games come with a freemium model. You will be lured into wasting a lot of money into the games such as buying weapons etc. My advice is not to waste your money on these games. You can use your money wisely for a better course.

Hope you like our selection of the games! Enjoy reading! See you in my next blog.
