Among Us has risen to popularity in recent months, and for good reason. It’s a really fun game! If you haven’t played Among Us, you and your friends are all trapped on a ship - some of them are crewmates needing to fulfil tasks, while others are imposters, who are killing off the crewmates one by one. Crewmates have the goal of getting rid of the imposters where the imposters have the goal of destroying the crewmates. Among Us is also cross-platform, so you can play with your friends who have the game on other devices.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a fighting game that takes characters from your favourite video games and allows you to play as them, learning their move sets and mastering their attacks in hopes of beating your friends up in the arena. Your goal is to knock everyone off of the platforms and ultimately the screen, but it will take a lot of attacks to get them off! Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is easy to pick up and play though it does take quite a bit to master.
