If you haven’t heard about Among Us yet in 2021, you must be living under a rock. This game is free to download on a mobile device but only costs a cheap five bucks if you’re on a PC.

The rules of Among Us are pretty simple.

It’s a hilarious & suspenseful game sure to cause a lot of fun chaos in your friend group.
Genshin Impact is another game that has been all the buzz this past year. It’s also another free to download game, and you can even play with up to three other friends. Genshin Impact is a fantasy role-playing game where you can fight others and unlock even more characters. The game takes place in the fantasy world of Teyvat, and follows the story of a lost twin sibling referred to as “Traveler”.

Subway Surfers is free to download on mobile devices and has remained a classic in the gaming community for years on end.
Players act as the role of a graffiti artist who has just been caught vandalizing, and the goal is to simply continue running away from the security guard chasing you. Along the way, you run through the train tracks, jump over trains, and collect various items such as coins or even jet packs. Subway Surfers will speed up with time, and the goal is to merely keep going until you get caught.
