Top Five Video Games to Play This Summer

Ahhh, summer vacation; it is great to be a gamer this summer, with a wide variety of new games available and on the horizon. Old video games are also appealing to the masses of kids on summer break this year. It is time to get competitive while spending a relaxing hot afternoon in the air conditioning, while exploring the excitement of discovering a new game. The number of girl gamers is also up over last year. Whether you prefer the edge of RPG or MMORPG games or prefer Open World or shooter games, the summer of 2015 will be sure to please.

Splatoon, a Wii U game, made its debut the last week of May. Splatoon, a family friendly third-person shooter game, lets shooters take aim with paint blasters instead of machine guns. Some older gamers say this game reminds them of the Sega classic, Jet Set Radio. Splatoon takes place in a California-chill world, full of color, abandoned warehouses, and with three different modes of play, including online battles. The inklings are customizable boy or girl squid-like characters.

One of the summer's most anticipated games is Batman: Arkham Knight, on June 23rd. The midnight release is expected to shatter all other game releases for the first half of the year. This Rocksteady action adventure is the final game in the Arkham series. It will weigh in at around 45 GB across PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 systems. For serious gamers, Warner Bros., the publisher, is offering a special deal for the Arkham Knight Premium Edition. The bundle, which comes with the game's $40 DLC pass and other bonuses, will sell for $100 at launch, but you can buy it for $90 up until launch. This discount applies to all versions of the game.

The Order 1886 made its debut for PlayStation 4 February 20, 2015. This game is a single-player action adventure game developed by Ready at Dawn and SCE Santa Monica Studio. Even though it is not a multi-player that you can play with friends, it is very entertaining and has great simulations and graphics.

Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, the much anticipated game for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC made its way to eager players in May 2015. Witcher 3 uses an open world format for the first time, and the graphics on this RPG are outstanding. What thing that really stands out about this game is the side quests available. It has almost eliminated gather quests. Quests that do resemble fetch quests are optional and woven into natural exploration of the map. This game will yield hours' worth of play and exploration.

Released in early 2015, one of the hottest summer games is Mortal Kombat X. This game can be played as a single player or have multiple players. When playing with friends, you can choose to have head-to-head battles, unleashing fighting options upon other worthy opponents. Mortal Kombat games are known for their flexibility, and this is especially true of X. Playing platforms include PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows.

There are other games releasing over summer that are sure to excite different classes of gamers worldwide, but these five have everyone excited and ready to play. The more the merrier, so gather up some friends for a night of gaming.
