It’s January now, and that means in certain parts of the world there’s little else to do but snuggle in, accept the snow, and find something to occupy your time during the long winter hibernation. If you happen to be one of those people stuck indoors and wishing desperately for more sunlight in your day, you’re in luck; the staff here at Goliath decided to band together and come up with a list that’s sure to have you entertained for dozens and perhaps even hundreds of hours. We’re talking, of course, about the 10 Best Time Wasting Video Games, games so immersive and expansive that once you start, you’ll have no choice but to sink your newfound free time into solving their puzzles, winning thier battles, or interacting with other players worldwide.
10. Kerbal Space Program (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, Linux, Mac)
It’s always a joy when you stumble across a video game that doesn’t baby it’s audience; rather, it presents difficult and unique challenges that ask more of the player than your standard fare. Kerbal Space Program, the space flight simulator which sees players designing their own rocket ship and attempting to successfully take off, navigate the cosmos, and land, uses real physics to simulate the challenges that face aerospace engineers every day; to the point where we can say with confidence that we never, ever want to be an aerospace engineer. Infinitely engaging and endlessly infuriating, Kerbal Space Program has been endorsed by real life bigwigs NASA and SpaceX (Elon Musk himself is an admitted enthusiast), further reinforcing the legitimacy of this fun and challenging game.
