If you have ever considered getting into games, 2017 is an excellent year to start. Regardless of how much time and money you want to personally spend, there will always be something for everyone that would make players go, “Oh wow, I can’t believe it’s 4am.” This list features the best games you can play depending on what your priorities are.

5. EverWing

Platform: Android/iOS
Who it is for: Those who want a decent time killer without too much commitment
Who it is not for: Those who hate getting game invites on Facebook
What you’ll need: A decent mid-range smartphone, an internet connection

Regardless of how you feel about Facebook games, EverWing has a lot to offer people who just want to have fun. The graphics and art style are impressive for a game that requires relatively low storage memory. The upgrades players can earn are satisfying to use and can make players extremely powerful. Lastly, you get to compete with your Facebook friends through the leaderboards.

4. Clash of Clans

Platform: Android/iOS
Who it is for: Players who like building towards a goal through patient resource management, strategy, and cooperation with other people;
Who it is not for: Pacifists
What you’ll need: A decent mid-range smartphone, an internet connection; patience

Vigilantly upgrading city defenses, looting and pillaging other cities with surgical precision, and joining your friends in all-out wars are the perfect gameplay dynamics for people looking to feel like kings and queens without investing too much time and money into the experience–if they do not want to.

3. The Witcher 3

Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows
Who it is for: Players who want to immerse themselves in one of the best fantasy-adventure stories ever told
Who it is not for: Those who do not like fantasy, RPGs, or long cinematic cutscenes
What you’ll need: A PlayStation 4, an Xbox One, or at least a modern budget gaming PC

This offers players one of the most compelling action-adventure, role-playing games of this generation. The Witcher 3 is the best modern example of the ideal single-player experience–movie-like storytelling, gameplay that can be as easy or as hard as you want it to be, and playing the game almost exactly the way you would play it if you were in the protagonist’s shoes.

2. Overwatch

Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows
Who it is for: People who like shooting games
Who it is not for: Those looking for a single-player experience
What you’ll need: a PlayStation 4, an Xbox One, at least a modern budget gaming PC, and a decent internet connection

This is an exclusively multiplayer game, and you do need to pay to play it. It can be summarized into one word: fun. May it be darting around the map as the speedy Tracer or killing everyone while just sitting still as the walking gun-turret Bastion, many players have fallen in love with just how easy it is to just start playing and enjoying the whole experience.

1. League of Legends / Dota 2

Platform: Windows
Who it is for: People who want to have casual fun, players who love winning
Who it is not for: Those who are easily affected by negative comments
What you’ll need: Thick skin, a reliable internet connection, a budget gaming PC

For years now, League of Legends and Dota 2 remain the top games played in the Philippines and it is really easy to see why. The game is very accessible in terms of hardware specifications. If you do not have your own computer, all computer cafes in the country support both games. What is so addicting about LoL or Dota 2 is the rewarding feeling of satisfaction of outmaneuvering your opponents into getting either kills and/or wins. Every move has a purpose and the gaming scene here can get intense. Thankfully, the developers of the game know this so newer players can mute report rude and toxic players for their behavior to get them banned from the game.
