Forget about flying around the world — travel bans have been imposed in most countries anyway — instead, venture into new worlds. And the best part is, you won't need to leave the comfort of your home to do it. All you'll need is a Nintendo Switch and some of the best adventure games playable both on the regular and Lite versions of the console and you're good to go.
Aside from letting us savour the exhilarating experience one gets from travelling, video games also benefit mental and emotional health. Immersing in gameplays through consoles like Switch affords us a respite wherein we can take our mind off of things for a short while — something we greatly need during this isolating pandemic. This psychological escape "helps you relax. It helps you feel like you're mastering challenges and it helps you feel like you have control over your environment — which are four main pieces to help you recover from stress," University of Saskatchewan computer science professor Regan Mandryk said, according to CBC.
You see, video games aren't just a mindless past-time fit for kids. So, for starters, in case you haven't yet, grab Nintendo's latest console here. But, if you already have one lying around at home, go right ahead and load these adventure games that will let you explore and unwind right on your couch.
