Buyer’s Guide: 3 Games to Play During Lockdown


Finding the perfect game during lockdown can be difficult. Some gamers may need something quick and simple to keep the kids busy, while others will be looking for the perfect escape of immersion from our current situation. We’ve rounded up 3 of the best games to occupy your time during lockdown in SA!

Overcooked 2

Available on: Xbox One, PS4, PC, Switch

If you’re looking for something to rope in some friends with or keep the kids busy, Overcooked 2 is a must-buy! The sequel follows the premise of the first game, which is quite simple: run a kitchen as smoothly as possible in order to get food orders out. However, when earthquakes, rats, ghosts, and other bizarre interruptions hit the kitchen (what kind of a restaurant is this, anyway?), things can get a bit tricky. Its simplicity is matched by the creativity of each scenario, resulting in an easy-to-play, difficult-to-master experience that’s best played with a bunch of mates.

Red Dead Redemption 2

Available on: Xbox One, PS4, PC

If you’re more of a solo, story-driven adventurer, games don’t get more immersive than Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar’s grand Western epic delivers a breathtaking and emotional story, while supplementing it with some of the best open-world gameplay on offer anywhere. Long, packed full of content, and as action-packed as a saloon fist-fight, Red Dead Redemption 2 will get you through any quarantine.

World War Z

Available on: Xbox One, PS4, PC

If you’re looking for something fast and intense to get your blood rushing (and maybe a little too close to home given the current end-of-the-world feeling), World War Z is an unsung gem from 2019 that should be considered. There’s no denying a sense of Left 4 Dead-inspired déjà vu when playing through World War Z. A lot of the special enemy types, characters, and world design is clearly inspired by Valve’s co-op shooter, but World War Z injects enough small nuances and arguably far-better shooting and gameplay mechanics to provide gamers with one of the most unique experiences in the genre.
