Is the crisp, fall weather keeping you indoors? Inside, and away from the cold, you’re likely searching for some comforting entertainment to enjoy (because you’ve been driven indoors like a hibernating bear). On cold days, there’s nothing better than cozying up with friends or family around a flat screen television, and gaming until your heart’s content. But, what games are going to warm you up the most this season? Let’s explore some options…
The Secret World (PC)
Complete freedom in an open universe? The Secret World is a MMORPG that allows you to be anything you want in a complete open universe, which is in many ways a reflection of the real world. There’s no social classes or levels, and you can do most anything you want.
You’ll never find yourself stuck in a boring storyline using an unoriginal default character you didn’t define yourself. In The Secret World you define how you look and what you do, and what you choose is going to propel the story you’ve created forward. Dive right into a virtual world of your own choosing, and be prepared to lose yourself in an immersive high-definition world where it never gets too cold to go outside.
