Since we will have plenty of time to try some titles, we decided to choose the 7 best long games today, so that you are entertained while this situation lasts.

7. The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim

It is a gigantic game in which we will tour the northern lands of Tamriel fulfilling different missions and objectives. The exploration will be essential, because the setting is spectacular.

Being able to customize your warrior will also immerse you in a title that has a large number of fans, in addition to completing different side missions that complement the main plot and add hours of gameplay.

6. Red Dead Redemption 2

This Rockstar Games title involves an experience in the Wild West, where nature will be our great ally, although it can also be a great enemy. In other words, the spectacular and ancient atmosphere is complemented by a great western story.

4. World of Warcraft

Talking about World of Warcraft implies recognizing one of the most iconic online multiplayer games in history. Despite not having a specific plot, as it is a constantly expanding world, the possibility of socializing and exploring new scenarios is what is captivating about the game.

That is, when we start our adventure we can choose one of the two historically faced factions: Alliance or Horde. In the same way, we will have different races and classes, where we will create a unique character that will have to face the dangers of this universe created by Blizzard that is totally in force.

3. Final Fantasy VII

GTA V is still the best possibility to explore a vast world, both in its offline history and in its multiplayer world. Basically, the possibilities are endless, since we are in a virtual version of Los Angeles -called Los Santos- where we will choose our own adventure.
