Remember all those dystopian movies/TV series depicting an apocalypse or wars for that matter? Yes, with all those empty streets, big guns, military check posts and not to forget the zombie?. Well, the time is somewhat similar but this time it’s us, humans, fighting our very own extinction just by sitting at our home. ‘We are just prisoners here, of our own device’ (if ya’ll don’t get the reference, you ought to listen to ‘The Eagles’).
At times like these, we turn to reminisce about the good old days. “I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them”, this quote by Andrew Bernard from The Office is getting hella relatable. (tbh all of The Office is 11/10 on the relatability factor)
So, times are hard, you miss your ex and all you can do is text her/him frantically but there are other things you can do apart from hammering down on your mental health.
Books, movies or video games are your best buddies at this time. For petrolheads, the choices are narrowed down to some critical levels. There are very few games to get the adrenaline pumping and no matter what, it takes our mind off from all the overthinking we tend to indulge in. So, here is a list of 5 games you can download and caress your inner ‘Ken Block’.
I don’t know about the sub-genres of petrolheads but what most of us can relate to is how much we love off-roading. To gulp down from the faucet of off-roading, the boys from Asphalt have just the thing for you. An off-roading delicacy is available for both iOS and Android. Cheggit!
Most men like breaking things. Or we can just drop the sexism here and agree to the fact that all of us, at some point in our life, like to break things. We do not encourage that so here is a better way we can help you channel that urge. Demolition Derby is a game that lets you crash your customized car into your opponent. Not a racing game but it does keep you hooked to your seat for a while. After all, that’s all we need right now.
Who in their right mind will skip Need For Speed(NFS) while talking about racing games? For the past 26 years, Need For Speed has kept us drooling over the mind-boggling storylines and racetracks. Their latest addition to this franchise is ‘No Limits’ and it is a job well-done.
