What games would you recommend someone to try out?

Mine is War Clicks.

Even though there are tons of fun games around that I've been playing all that time, you simply can't play them all and need to find those that suit you best – the ones that you feel most comfortable with. When the times changed and took away some of my free time, I was determined to still play games, but only those who take smaller amount of my time. And I know that my friends have mostly the same issue, not having same amount of hours available to play as we once had.

So, I'd recommend (already did – before opening this discussion to the public) a game, that at first doesn't require me to play for hours to proceed, but keeps rewarding me every time I get back. The game is called War Clicks and I'm completely hooked with it now. I didn't image (at start) that this one can be so much fun to play (sincerely it wasn't that fun on my day2 or 3, as I didn't know all the story around and didn't know the features well, but after that it got the title of a game I would recommend to my best friends!).

It would probably be Red Dead Redemption 2 but just for the single player. The story was just amazing, the graphics were great and the gameplay was out of the world.

I would highly recommend The Elder Scrolls Online which is a MMORPG. I am enjoying the visuals and the story line so far. I even purchased the membership bundle to enjoy the game without any limitations and I can say it was well worth it.

I'd say Serious Sam. Because most of my friends prefer the survival games. And most of them would love something like that. And if not survival game I'd recommend them some games like tower defense specific like realm defense.

Mass Effect 2, no question. One of the most enjoyable game experiences I've ever had. I think I have played it through 4-5 times.
It has engagning gameplay and an interesting story. It had enough fluff and side stuff that I always had something to do when playing just 30-60 minutes or all day. And a lot of replayability with different classes and choices in the story.
It is kind of old now and Bioware don't have the best track record anymore but I would always recommend Mass Effect to anyone

COD: Black Ops 4, Hands down one of the best online shooters of the year, the new blackout mode they have is insane and you have to play it if you haven't already.

If you are into the zombie games and on android, better check the into the dead 2. I am sure you'd love it. I recommended that to many of my friends. And most of them loved it because here you get to run and kill at the same time.

It's definitely going to be God of war as that is one game that I don't get tired playing. The phases are nice with exciting storylines that you will enjoy. I understand gamers can have preferences, but God of war is one game that is cool.

I would highly recommend Counter-strike: Global offensive, it really makes you stay in the game for a long time.
 
I would suggest Desperados 3. It hasn't been released yet but I loved it's prequel back in 2003 and can't wait to play another one of those. It was a great top-down strategy game similar to the 'commandos series'. You had to control a team, outlaws completing missions in stealthy ways. It had some really nice gameplay ideas.

I am sure that we all wanted to recommend games to someone either it could be friend or family member.

It will be an interesting experience when we recommends someone a game he/she didn't think much about before or they assumed that they wouldn't like it.

So, what games will you like to recommended?

What genre do you want the games to be recommended in? For example, "FPS or strategy game", unless you just want pure game recommendations. (Either one is fine, though!)

xenonVirus. Just trying to help a fellow forumer out.

I recently discovered that you are automatically directed to the server closest to you in League. But I myself want to connect to the german servers as they give the best ping. What would you recommend I do?

It turns out that PCMag has a page on this. Apparently, there's an article on IGN about it too.
If you like, you can read the full articles, but if you just want quick answers, PCMag thinks that Private Internet Access VPN and NordVPN are the best for gaming, whereas IGN thinks that Private Internet Access and IP Vanish are the best for gaming. (It helps that IP Vanish is specifically made for gamers.)

xenonVirus. Personally, I think that VPNs are pretty great! :)

I don't mind if you ask for a review - I'm just trying to help, after all!
PureVPN itself is actually a very good service. I found a review online from PCMag, the same site I used for showing you the "best VPNs of gaming" page. The thing is, I actually think you should go with Private Internet Access VPN instead of PureVPN because of this quote from the page:
PureVPN boasts an outstanding network of international VPN servers, but its user experience leaves something to be desired, and some features didn't work in testing. We recommend Editors' Choice winners NordVPN or Private Internet Access as more full-featured alternatives....

So to sum it up, yes, that page is a reliable source, but I actually think it would be better to go with Private Internet Access VPN.

xenonVirus. I hope this information is helpful to you. :)

The Crew 2. I think a lot of people don't like it but it really shouldn't be hated as much as it is. The game is really fun and an amazing game to play if you just want an open world game where you can drive around. It's just so relaxing especially if you just put some Spotify tunes on.
 
Personally, I like sci-fi games the most, especially if they have a good narrative (or at least good gameplay that redeems the lack of one). So if we're talking about FPS I would firstly recommend Halo: The Master Chief Collection as Halo: Reach released on PC not long ago. You can find it on Steam or Microsoft store.

Other games that come to my mind are Titanfall 2 (even though it's a sequel, it's good for newcomers as the predecessors didn't have a singleplayer campaign), if you like that one, you can easily try the free to play Apex Legends battle royale that is set in the same fictional universe as Titanfall. Doom (2016) is also worth considering.

Even though it's not a sci-fi shooter, I must say that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer will always have a special place in my heart. And it still has an active community on Steam, even though it released 10 years ago. It was a hit at launch and for me, it continues to be. Kills streak rewards, all the callsigns, and emblems you unlock, different combinations of perks and weapon attachments. It's extremely addictive and I would even say creative. Everybody develops their own style of playing. Even its flaws like noob tubing, Javelin spamming, g18 and all other unbalanced guns give it a certain charm.

I've been recommending Splitgate for a while, it's a good alternative if you like Halo but cant get the new Master Chief set.

To be honest I dont really play at the moment, but I'm excited to get a new PC and maybr do VR later

I'd recommend mobile legends, as it has some really good new updates and also some really good experience as far as the heroes are concerned.
