10 'Getaway' Video Games for Non-Gamers

There are a lot of great games for all those who spend hours discovering new lands or pretending to be an Italian plumber. But, these are the best for those of us who are new to the world of gaming.


Let's face it, some of us need a new hobby. Ideally, one healthier than looking at your ex's Instagram. Gaming can be that new hobby. But, getting started can be overwhelming.

There are countless games about war and shooting, and starting a google search will lead you to a rabbit hole you don't want to dive in.

So, I gathered some of the best video games for non-gamers. A bunch of games any dummy can master. If I can do it, so can you.

Portal 2

You can choose between a single-player or a multiplayer game. The goal is to get out of situations creatively by using the wormhole-creating portal gun. This version continued the original storyline but features new exciting characters and new challenges.

It's a sci-fi adventure game. What could be better?

$9.99

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

Any adventure featuring Mario and Luigi is iconic. This Super Mario Bros. is a perfect twist on the classic. It's two games in one. Your goal is to save the Mushroom kingdom.

Trust me, it's better than board games.

$40.40

Minecraft

This is a puzzle game for creative people. You get to build anything from a pile of rocks to a giant castle. There is a reason why so many are obsessed with this game. Literally anyone can play.

You can even build mini-games to play inside this game. Actually, I don't think that's true.

$6.99

Animal Crossing: New Horizons 

Everyone has been talking about this game. The characters are adorable, the animals are as cute as it gets, and it's paradise. You build your own private island from the start. You can customize everything from the home and decor to your landscape. You can also visit other players.

It's as relaxing as "The Great British Bake Off".

$55.99

Super Mario Odyssey 

Like I said, any Mario game is a classic. However, this is an action-adventure game in 3D. So, like all the other Mario games, but better.

You sail between worlds on an airship powered by moons. But, you still have to save Princess Peach.

$57.99

Stardew Valley: Collector's Edition

This is your chance to be the farmer you always wanted to be. Turn an overgrown field into a farm with animals and crops, and has nothing to do with walking dead plants (yes, that was a Plants vs. Zombies joke).

You can improve one of your five skills: farming, mining, combat, fishing, and foraging.

$11.99

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

This is the ultimate outdoors exploring adventure. Plus there are new challenges for anyone who has played the previous classic Legends of Zelda games. This game is full of new creative tools and weapons you can collect.

Some reviews claim that this game alone is worth getting a new Nintendo Switch for.

$54.95

Dark Souls Remastered 

This role-playing game is for people with a darker sense of humor. The epic dark fantasy starts with a curse and keeps getting more and more interesting. There is a combination of fantasy, magic, weapons, and adventure. The game is so intricate that you can complete it more than once, and it will still be fun.

$19.38

Cuphead 

If you are a coffee fanatic imagine a game in which the main character has a mug for a head. Yes, it's that good. This game is inspired by cartoons in the 1930s, but still, it manages to be packed with adventure and suspense.

Every detail is thought through. If you are into graphic design, this will be the game for you.

$19.99

Hollow Knight 

Befriend cool bugs, explore new kingdoms, and fight epic battles. This game is expansive and allows you to choose between paths and enemies to fight. Trust me, it's fun.

$14.99
People Divulge Their Favorite 'Rich Person Hobbies'

We've all played the "What I would do if I was rich" game.

Admit it.

You've imagined a trillion scenarios for what you would do (after you paid off your debt, of course) with wads of cash. In your imagination, you've given money to friends, started charities or businesses, and probably bought your fair share of imaginary real estate.

And that's all just the basics. We haven't even gotten into all the rich-people hobbies you could take up like SCUBA golfing, sailboat customization, or learning how to melt down antique jewelry to make gem-encrusted bongs for yoga Wednesdays at the gym-slash-coffeehaus.
