This list has got few of strategy games, along with some RPG’s and the sandbox as well and of course has been made on my personal favorite games or the game that I have tried, so the list might lose some of the epic games you like or have come across. Luckily I could have added the blue whale challenge but due to some eyes from the FBI, I had to cut it down.
This game is so much into hype these days that recently a kid killed himself over it as he could not get the proper required series of tech to run the game. But everything has got some exceptional cases, besides which the game has got best features for a team or on a personal level. As being said, this game can be played as a solo player or with a group of mates.
