There's nothing better than playing games on a cold day with a hot drink and snacks beside you. Winter is the perfect time to play some new games, it's cold and you kinda want to to just be bundled up inside. If you can't find anything to watch on Netflix, give these a go on your next cosy chill day.

Assassin's creed: Origins

This is the first Assassin's Creed i've been excited about in years and wow it's amazing. It has the old school Ezio vibes of Assassin's Creed 2, but also has elements which remind me of Prince of Persia and Lara Croft. Which essentially means it reminds me of some of my absolute favourite games. Origins is set in Egypt, following Bayek, an Egyptian Madji. Lots of assassinations, bows and camel riding 💖

Mario Kart

Good game to play around around the holidays, play with caution though, mario kart is a bit like monopoly and might ruin some of your relationships. I love playing mario kart when the weather is a bit meh because it always perks my mood up, all the adrenaline and competitiveness (and also because I'm good and usually beat everyone else, ego boost)

Animal Crossing

There's a new app game, super fun if you don't want to carry your ds with you, or you can play the classic ds versions, always super fun and so relaxing. The characters are adorable, the activities are fun and change with the seasons. Your animal crossing town is transformed with snow in the winter and it's super duper pretty. Also snowmen!!

Life is strange

If you're up for an emotional and character driven game this is the one to play.
Life is strange always reminds me of an emotional winter, most likely because I played it for the first time in January a couple of years ago, and man this game made me cry. I'm pretty sure I cried for like a whole two hours after finishing it. I love this game so much I even picked up the special edition for the PS4 and which comes with a captivating lil concept art book. I love it.

What games do you love playing in winter?


  1. My boyfriend bought me Animal Crossing: New Leaf for Christmas so I’ve been obsessed with that this month (I’ve pretty much spent my entire January fishing and making my house look as mermaid-y as possible!). I’ve had the app game for ages too, and haven’t tried it yet, so I’ll have to try that for when I’m out and about. Great post! :)

  2. I absolutely love Life Is Strange :)
    Have a nice week
