Gaming and socializing are the two things that don’t go well with each other. A person sitting in front of a screen with a gaming console for hours will have no time to interact with their friends and family. Sometimes, people are too engrossed in gaming that they forget to eat and sleep just because they want to be at the top of the scoreboard.

If you want to stay connected with your friends while entertaining yourself at home, then start playing social games. Nowadays, the whole world is promoting self-isolation because of Corona pandemic, which gives you the perfect opportunity to try the following social games:

Duelit

Duelit is a platform that hosts mini versions of several popular games. These mini versions last for a minute or two and are primarily skilled based. You can invite your friends and family to participate in tournaments with them and earn cash prizes.

People who don’t like to sit for hours just to complete one stage or mission of a game can enjoy these one-minute games without any restrictions. 

Words with Friends

Developers at Newtoy created this multi-player game that you can play with your friends whenever you like. The concept of the game is inspired by the traditional and famous board game, Scrabble, but the setting is entirely virtual. You and your friends don’t have to be in each other’s vicinity to play this game.

Second Life 

Just like its name suggests, “Second Life” lets you live a virtual life that is entirely different from your current one. You might be tired of the monotony in your life and dwell on plenty of “what ifs” every day. 

Games like “Second Life” allow you to create a virtual world for yourself where everything will be according to your wishes, starting from the environment and situations to the appearance of your character. It has been around for almost two decades since it was first launched in 2003, and people are still not bored with its concept and storyline.

If you are not happy with your jobs and appearance, then go to settings and change everything, however you please. One of the many reasons that make “Second Life,” a big hit among virtual reality games, is because of its socially interactive interface.

Just like you are a character in virtual reality, there are other characters roaming around that grid living their life as well. You can interact with them using the chat option, and talk about the game or your real life with them.

Moreover, you can decide if you want to continue interacting with them and build a relationship of either friendship or love with them or not.
