how-to-find-good-games

Choosing a game is one of the most frustrating work especially when you had played a great game and wanted a similar game-play in terms of graphics and storylines. If you are an anxious person like me and have a desire to find the best games capable of taking you on a journey never experienced before,  this post is exactly for you.

Finding and playing a great game whether on PC or Andriod is like discovering a golden nugget you never knew existed. Some games are right in front of you but due to their names or title picture, you overlooked them thinking, this is just another waste.

I will be giving tactics on how to find similar games in terms of story, character, or genre. How to find the best pc games and how you can find the best games to play on Andriod.  Let's get started

 

Find similar games

Finding a similar game is sometimes difficult. There are some demands here like in what type you want a similar game. Do, you like the graphics, characters, or storylines. We will look into some ways how you can find a similar game like the one you are currently playing or had played

 

 

Ways to find similar games:

 

1) Go to youtube and do a similar genre search 

2) Go to steam and search for a similar game type

3) Search by year the game was developed

4) Be broad-minded

 

 

1) Go to YouTube and do a similar genre search :

This one is quite simple. You will find lots of great games on YouTube just need to search in terms of the genre like if you're playing a shooter game search for other great shooters games.

 

Searching for games similar to "call of duty" there are chances you might get similarities but those games would be outdated or too popular such that you had already played them. By doing a broad search many new games will unfold giving you a chance to play different games new in the story.

 

2) Go to steam and search for a similar game type

 

Steam is a great place to find games. There are many interesting games you can download and play make sure you check their system requirements

 

If you don't like a game and think you would not find any similar game type go to Steam community and feel free to ask, don't be shy you might find something really interesting. Read the forum and search according to your gaming needs

 

Go to discovery queue on steam and search games according to genre  

 

3) Search by year the game was developed:

 

Some games can be found by filtering through years. If you are unable to find any good games go to google and search on which year it was developed then search according to year.

 

Great place is Gamedebate allowing you to search according to game year. The downside is you will get all the games developed in that year so best is to do a quick youtube search according to year game

 

4) Be broad-minded:

 

It's important that you should be broad-minded. You might not find any other similar game and have to stick with the old. If you have recently finished a game and facing post-game depression not liking any new game or trying newer genres.

 

read my post on how to get over post-game depression?  

 

This will help in dealing with emotions that are compelling you to get a similar game mainly while playing a single-player storyline. I faced post-game sadness when I finished "firewatch" and didn't have any similar games.

 

I will be listing some of the great games I had played, helping you find a bunch of cool games but if you couldn't grasp any of the best, it's better to wait and accept.


Another method you could try is to go to Gamefinder and search for games similar to what you had played before.

How to find good games on android?


how-to-find-android-games

Now we will discuss some methods of how you can find great games on android devices. I am a pc gamer but due to a lot of games going multiplayer on mobile I started to find interest in android games. 

My main attention is shooters and popular games. The biggest benefits of these games are mostly long and never-ending especially those that are on multiplayer levels.

Android games are constantly being developed So, it's best to follow the steps below, to determine the best possible game on google play .

 

Some ways to find best game on android are:

 

  • Search through desktop google chrome
  • Pick a specific category 
  • Watch gameplays
  • Don't look at downloads but at number of reviews

 

Search through desktop google chrome:

By searching through desktop google chrome you get more information about the games. It will be a fast option and if you find a great game download at the moment right through the PC.

Pick a specific category 

Google play will suggest some of the popular games as well as favorites So, instead of roaming around pick yourself a specific category and stick to it. By picking 1 or 2 specific categories you can easily navigate through games instead of getting confused.

Watch gameplays

Before downloading watch the gameplay given on the app and then go to reviews to check the credibility of a game. Some games do look good in ads but they have so many in-game purchases which will make you lose interest.

Don't look at downloads but at number of reviews

Many games have lots of downloads but fewer reviews and some have a lots of reviews and fewer downloads instead of looking at "download number" to determine the quality look for number of reviews and read them afterward if number of reviews are lower skip those games they are either not popular or people didn't find them too appealing.

Some Android Games you could try:

Galaxy attack alien shooter   

Cooking madness

Angry birds

Traffic rider

Sonic dash

Dragon city

Candy crush
