Who's Up For A Challenge!

Posted On Tuesday November 12, 2019

Spider-man: Far From Home might be raking in money at the box office but there’s actually an entertainment industry that’s making even more money. Video games! In fact, the video game industry brings in more money than Hollywood and the music industry combined, and has done this for the past eight years. The library has children’s and adult’s video game collections which are constantly growing. Not sure what to borrow? Here are some suggestions:

Overcooked (Nintendo Switch – Rated E) – This cooking game features frantic multiplayer fun. Overcooked has a competitive mode, but it really shines in cooperative play when everyone is working together.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (PS4 or Xbox One – Rated M) – Taking place in 1500s Sengoku Japan, this action-adventure game offers a punishing challenge for those brave enough to take it on.

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 (PS4 or Xbox One – Rated M) – This role-playing game/shooter hybrid drops the player into a near-future Washington, D.C. in the aftermath of a deadly smallpox epidemic.

Lego DC Super Villains (Nintendo Switch, PS4, or Xbox One – Rated E 10+) – Infused with humour, this fourth entry in the DC Lego video games is great multiplayer or solo. It’s easy to pick up, but unlocking all the playable villains might take you a while!

Detroit: Become Human (PS4 – Rated M) – If you want something that doesn’t rely as much on technical skill, this game often feels more like an interactive movie. Compellingly acted, Detroit: Become Human asks what might happen in a future where much of society has been replaced by androids without any rights – and what happens when they decide to fight for them?
