For over ten years, Minecraft has been on people’s screens, allowing them to build and explore new worlds. Infinite terrain, fighting mobs, and mining blocks, gives players fun and the freedom to express themselves. And sometimes fight off monsters too!

GRAND THEFT AUTO
GTA was first introduced to the world back in 1997. Since then, there have been seven standalone titles and four expansion packs. So, it’s pretty popular then! Gameplay focuses on an open world where players complete missions to progress an overall story. Most of this means you’re driving around and getting into trouble (not recommended IRL!) with occasional side missions to do too. Did you know YouTuber MSuraev holds the record for fastest time completing a GTA game (GTA III) in 1 hours, 12 minutes and 10 seconds?!
