Cameron Taylor – MrDOOD. I play a lot of DOOM. I play a lot of Elder Scrolls. I am above average with Bowser on Smash. I eat a lot of street tacos. Welcome to my ted talk. Twitch.tv/mrdood

First things first – this virus sucks. It is deadly for those in at-risk demographics. For the love of everything holy, wash your hands and do not spread it.

Second – after weeping like a boil due to my stonks dipping faster than a 300% Samus getting spiked by Mario, my employer announced a two week hiatus to prevent exposure and risk for employees. Two weeks? A solid amount of time. Coronavirus Quarantine sucks, but games during quarantine time don’t have to. Here are 5 games to play during the coronavirus quarantine:


5 Games Worthy of Your Quarantine Time


1) DOOM Eternal

The DOOM Slayer returns to find demons have invaded earth and he is more pissed off than ever. PC Gamer gave DOOM Eternal a 95/100 score and everyone who has played it thus far has recommended it.

The single player campaign is expected to melt your face. The soundtrack by Mick Gordon is also expected to melt your face. Battlemode multiplayer and campaign invasion mode are expected to melt your face. Simply put, DOOM Eternal is taking an old genre and making it better and more badass than ever before. 

RIP AND TEAR until it is done.

2) Animal Crossing: New Horizons

My wife watched the Nintendo Direct with the deep dive into this game. Needless to say, we preordered. Animal Crossing puts you on an island with cute furry friends and hands you the task of building a life for yourself as terraformer-in-chief.

Animal Crossing aims to please with high 95/100 scores coming in from a variety of review sites. If you own a Nintendo Switch, this game will offer endless hours of entertainment as you wait out the Coronavirus quarantine time. We are definitely looking forward to this dropping March 20, alongside DOOM Eternal.

3) Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Warzone

Proudly bearing Dr. Disrespect’s stamp of approval. COD Modern Warfare Warzone is a clean, optimized, and fast-paced FREE TO PLAY BR mode that provides massive replay value.

BR games make me sleep, I drop, I loot for 15 minutes, then some 14 year old with no adult responsibilities comes by on a motorcycle and hits my lag-spiked ankle with a pan and I die. I just wasted 20 minutes of my life.

Not with COD MW – Warfare. This is the type of game that gives back and keeps you in the fight with unique ways to come back from the depths of RNG loot hell. It is cinematic, fast, has great gunplay, and tons of customization… if you’re into that sort of thing. Much like receiving a post-date text, Modern Warfare keeps you on the hook for another round.


4) Total War: Warhammer 2

One Word: EPIC

My Dark Elf army was overrun by two High Elf armies each with Lords and Heroes with plenty of battle experience. I was outnumbered.

It didn’t matter.

Malekith, The Witch King, wielding the fabled sword of Khaine mounted atop a black dragon led my dark elf army to a slaughter of all slaughters. Magic, massive armies, epic moments and large-scale battles are a plenty in this 10/10 game.

If you have a PC that’ll run it, this high-fantasy RTS is a must-play during this time. You’ll start at 8am and end at 8pm the following week.

5) The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

“You N’wah!”

Most people were introduced to the Elder Scrolls franchise through Skyrim. Rightfully so, Skyrim put Bethesda and arrows in the knee into the limelight and everyone has benefited from the massive success of ESV.

However, if we go a decade prior we experience Elder Scrolls in its purest form.

Morrowind is eclectically mysterious. It has no map marker, every action is a dice roll, and every NPC has text only dialogue. Morrowind captivates fans through amazing storytelling mixed with a highly rewarding role-playing experience like no other.

I love Morrowind and, being my favorite Elder Scrolls game, recommend it to anyone. “Wake up, we’re here. I heard them say we’ve reached Morrowind, I’m sure they’ll let us go.”
