The 5 Best Video Games Even Non-Gamers Will Adore:

Cult of the Lamb

Ever dreamt of leading your own cult? Well, buckle up because "Cult of the Lamb" puts you in the hooves of an adorable, yet surprisingly sinister, lamb with a cult-leading mission! In this charmingly dark and dilapidated world, you'll be tasked with repaying a mysterious savior by building a loyal following of mythical woodland creatures.


From unicorns to bunnies, spiders, and donkeys, the choice is yours in shaping your faithful flock. But remember, maintaining control isn't all sunshine and rainbows. You'll need to construct worshipping altars, temple spaces, and cozy beds to keep your minions content. And watch out for dissenters — whether through reeducation or ritual sacrifice, you'll need to keep your followers in line.

But the fun doesn't stop there! Prepare to clash with heretical foes as you defend your burgeoning cult with an arsenal of weapons, relics, and spells. Developed by Massive Monster and published by Devolver Digital, "Cult of the Lamb" is a roguelite adventure that's as cute as it is morbid, earning it a TEEN rating across multiple platforms.

Crafted by Santa Monica Studio and thatgamecompany, this masterpiece of a game, released in 2012, continues to enchant with its spellbinding visuals and a Grammy-nominated musical score that will leave you breathless.

Do you like mysteries and whodunnits? If so, step into the shoes of Edith as she unravels the haunting mysteries of her family's dark past in "What Remains of Edith Finch." As the sole survivor of a sprawling family tree plagued by tragedy, it's up to you to delve deep into the memories of each deceased relative to uncover the truth behind their untimely demise.

The Witness

Prepare to embark on a mind-bending journey in "The Witness," where you'll emerge from the depths of an underground bunker into a mysterious, abandoned island brimming with perplexing logic puzzles. As an enigmatic figure, your mission is to navigate increasingly challenging puzzles scattered across the landscape, deciphering visual clues and unraveling the island's secrets.


Patience and keen observation are your allies as you delve into the intricate puzzles, each designed to test the limits of your intellect and ingenuity. With no battles to be fought, your only adversary is the complexity of the puzzles — requiring not brawn but brainpower to conquer.

But beware, for the ultimate challenge lies at the game's conclusion, a timed trial that demands you to apply all you've learned throughout your journey. With increasingly stressful classical music ("The Art of Fugue" by Johann Sebastian Bach) echoing in the background, this final test will push your mental prowess to its limits.
