I think it’s safe to assume that at this point of time, almost everyone in the world knows what Minecraft is. To summarize, it’s an open world sandbox game where you can almost do anything you want in this procedural generated world. And I don’t use the word “world” lightly as this game has one of the biggest maps that we’ve seen in a game. Start gathering material and crafting material. Survive the harsh night time and dungeons. Watch out for sneaky creepers that might just take you out. Minecraft guarantees hours and hours of just getting lost in its infinite terrain where you can you build whatever want. The only limit here is only your imagination.
When we talk about Tetris, we know what to expect. But what about if Tetris gets combined with awesome light shows and music beats that corresponds with your every move in the game? Well, you get a game like Tetris Effect. The immersion levels that this game presents is out of this world.

Tetris Effect is a PlayStation exclusive, so you’ll need your PSN Gift Cards in order to purchase it for your console. This game is the perfect game if you want something to do to wind down from a busy day.
It’s safe to say that game development has come a long way where it’s possible for developers to take a simple idea of walking around a forest while completing task into a visual masterpiece that you get to experience for yourself. Although there’s an interesting plot accompanying the game, the main set piece for this game is its visual aesthetics that puts you in the middle of a forest as a park ranger, where you go around and completing tasks. The beautiful orange wash over your surroundings as the sun slowly sets is something you have to experience for yourself.
