I’m a dad, and a big fan a dad jokes (ask me why I had to break up with my tennis-playing girlfriend…).
But as a dad and former serious gamer, I’ve been having trouble finding time to play serious games. So I was excited to see that Apple had published a list of top-notch casual “Dad games” just for me. 🤓
PUBG is the main game I play right now. I’ve been playing with my friends for over a year, and it just keeps getting better. It’s full of funny and ridiculous moments, tons of failure, narrow escapes, and (very) occasional victory.
In the game, you jump out of an airplane onto an island with your friends and about 95 other people. You start out unarmed and have to scavenge for weapons. The last team alive wins. That’s about it. It’s the perfect game.
Most of the time, you spend 20 minutes looting for weapons and sneaking around and then suddenly get killed out of nowhere. And the game is over. And you don’t even know what happened. Those 20 minutes ripe with tension and the silliest conversations with your friends that you can ever imagine. I love it. About 0.7% of the time (that is my actual stat), you win the game and get a “Winner winner, chicken dinner” shirt. 🤷🏻♂️
