The Top 25 Video Games Right Now

video games

With everyone staying at home more these days, video games have become one-way individuals and families pass the time. If you do a Google search for “the most popular video games”, every site you look at has a different list and no two agree on the ranking of the games they have in common. So I went to my own gamer and asked him to help me create a list of the top video games that people are playing right now.

Before we get to the list, let me tell you a little about my gamer, Rayden. He is 19 years old now and has been playing video games since he was about 5 years old. Since Rayden was about 10 years old, you could give him a video game disk with no instructions and within 15 minutes or so he was playing the game like a pro. He plays games across all platforms as he has a Game Cube, Xbox, Playstation, and a PC as well as several handheld gaming consoles. As his mom, I had to struggle with the decision to buy him games that were rated for people older and that were more violent. But since Rayden was about 8 years old and could beat the games rated for his age within a few hours or a day, I did buy him the older rated games.

So now that you know a little more about Rayden, here is the list we came up with:

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – Warzone     Rated – Mature 17+
  • Minecraft                                                             Rated – Everyone
