5 Endless Games
So, let me explain that title. These games have no specific end goal, they just keep going. Each time you boot up the game, the world can be randomly generated for a new gaming experience. These five games are some of the more well known titles, one being one of the most popular games in the world.
1. Garry's Mod
Usually shortened to just GMod, this is a sandbox physics game with no set objective and allows the players to manipulate ragdolls and props. There are a few mini games to play such as prop hunt, death run, trouble in terrorist town, hide n seek, and guess who. The players can also download user created maps and characters, as well as just mess with the physics of any prop spawned from the menu. The physics gun allows the player to move, rotate and freeze ragdolls in place. The tool gun is used to constrain props, create interactive buttons, create controllable winches and wheels, change expressions and pose digits of a ragdoll. There is so much to do in GMod, a wide range of maps from well known shows and video games, to random locations from real life. So many characters to choose from, including movie, television and even Youtube personalities.
2. Dead Realm
A creepy take on hide n seek, players must hide and avoid being caught by another player in the form of a ghost. The main game mode is Seek and Reap, pitting ghosts against humans, the ghosts haunt the humans using jump scares, causing the human to turn into the ghost and in turn go against the remaining humans. The game ends when either all humans are turned or the humans survive the time limit. Some of the creative directors include The Syndicate Project, VanossGaming, SeaNanners, Daithi De Nogla, The Gaming Terroriser, and Mini Ladd.
3. Dead by Daylight
Yet another horror game, with a similar mechanic to Dead Realm. The differences are that Dead Realm is up to four players, with one of them being the killer. The main goal is to elude the killer, repair generators found around the map and escape. The areas included are a secluded forest, abandoned junkyard, decrepit cornfield, haunted asylum, gas station, dark swamp and the small town of Haddonfield, Illinois. Survivors play in a third-person view and the killer is first-person. The only ways to escape the map are to repair the generators that open the main metal doors, or to find a trap door that only opens when there is one survivor left and two generators have been successfully repaired. When the killer is close, the player will hear a heartbeat and tense music. There are six killers to take control of, each with their own special ability. Both survivors and killers can unlock items, perks and offerings through the Bloodweb.
4. The Sims
Now here is a title that everyone has either heard of or played. Sims is a life simulation game, where you can create your own family and control them to your hearts content. Pretty much anything can happen in the Sims, ranging from random burglaries, to a clown showing up at your house, and random deaths. For the original Sims game, seven expansion packs and two deluxe editions were released with exclusive content.
Sims 2 introduces a life cycle, features a clear day of the week cycle, with weekends where children don't have to go to school, as well as vacation days for working adults. This game also added the mechanic that sims can now climb out of pools when there is no ladder put in. The entire game runs on 3D models instead of 2D sprites. There are eight expansion packs, nine stuff packs, and over 400 exclusive items that were also released for the game via the Sims 2 store.
Sims 3 introduced wishes and goals, features a seamless neighborhood, and improved tools for sim creation and enhanced build and buy functions. Eleven expansion packs and nine stuff packs were released.
Sims 4 takes place in an alternate setting from the previous installment. Three game packs, three expansion packs and nine stuff packs have been released. Updates have added content that was previously absent due to time restraints or other reasons, such as basements, ghosts, pools and toddlers. New careers were also added.
The Sims, since the release of the original, is one of the best selling video games of all time. Which is understandable, since the possibilities are endless with what you can create and do in the world of the Sims. You can make families, ruin families, find different ways to kill your Sim, make them successful, it all depends on how you go about it.
5. 7 Days to Die
An open world survival game, 7 Days to Die takes place after nuclear Third World War, which has caused the area to become barren and destroyed, and people to turn into zombies. The player must survive by finding food, water and shelter, as well as scavenge for supplies to fend off zombies. At this moment, there is no real objective except surviving, but developers have hinted at a possible storyline that will be added in future updates. The game also has a physics system, in which any buildings not supported will collapse. The zombies during the day are slow and weak, but at night they become much faster and aggressive. As the days wear on, the zombies will begin to get tougher and more aggressive, not just at night. Every seven days, the mood will turn red, and the player must survive until morning against a horde of vicious zombies.
