Of course, it has been popular even before the unfortunate virus came around, but the spike it received was unprecedented.

A lot of people turned to play games as a form of home entertainment with a lot of gaming industries seeing new record numbers of people visiting their platforms.

During the pandemic caused by COVID keeping yourself occupied at home was one of the most important things to do with a lot of people struggling to come to terms with being stuck at home for long periods. During the pandemic, home entertainment becomes very popular with more people looking for things to do to help them pass the time whilst having fun. There are many forms of home entertainment with games and movie companies making sure to offer as much as they can across different online platforms to offer people at home an endless choice of different things to choose from when it comes to home entertainment.

Online gaming became very popular during the lockdowns with more people turning to it due to there being chat rooms where gamers could speak to each other which proved to be very popular amongst a lot of people. Multiplayer games become popular as well due to groups of friends or family members being able to play this together and from different households as well.

If you are a lone wolf, you probably don’t look for entertainment with other people present. This is fine, as there are many things you can do on your own. The best thing we could recommend is watching movies and TV shows. This is a broad subject so we’re going to narrow it down. What we recommend for a bit of home fun is Netflix. This streaming platform has everything someone who wants to watch TV can wish for. It has the best movies, original titles, and old hits alike. We’re not going to dig into some of the most popular series out there all available on Netflix. If you want to get hooked immediately we’re going to direct you towards titles such as The Witcher, Squid Game, and Altered Carbon. The best part is that you actually can invite someone over, and we don’t know, chill?

Now, don’t think we’re all that fun, with the way we started this article with gambling and a bit of Netflix and chill. You can avoid both of these things and try instead some old fashioned reading. Yes, reading can be fun, especially if you are at home. You don’t even have to go to a library or a book shop. With apps such as Kindle available, you can read books in a different form from paper. Books are a world of their own, which is an amazing place to enter. You can start reading titles such as The Song of Ice and Fire, finish what’s available to you, and become one of the millions of readers who wait for Martin to complete his masterpiece. Even better, you can eat up the Malazan Book of The Fallen, which has ten iterations, all of which are amazing. A completed series at that. Also, you can turn back the wheel of time and read some of the classics such as Crime and Punishment or 1984.

If none of the options from above aren’t exactly for you, don’t worry, we’re not done yet. The one thing that most people enjoy these days regardless of their age is video games. The days of arcades are long gone, and consoles took over a while ago. Today you can play video games on your PC, Xbox, or Play Station all depending on your preferences. Furthermore, you can play them on your mobile phone.

But, for the full thrill, we recommend one of the options we first mentioned, combined with a massive HD screen. Video games are on another level these days. So if you want to divulge some of the world’s best titles, and the cream of the crop this industry has to offer, we have a few suggestions. Just some of the games that could tie you to your console for days are: Any of the GTA games you choose, also The Witcher (both the game and the series are amazing; we could also add the books in the mix), Skyrim, Far Cry, Call of Duty, Assassin’s Creed, and Red Dead redemption among other titles.

In the end, we don’t want to bore you or anything, and we don’t want to make this article too long to read, so we’ll leave you one hard suggestion of not so much home entertainment. We’re talking about a home gym. Yes, the home workout is an amazing form of entertainment. You’ll feel better; you’ll look better; you’ll have more energy. Combine your workouts with a bit of music, and you’ll be entertained as the good people in the audience of The Gladiator. Yes, we left the music on purpose, as it can be combined with so many things you can do at home and have fun. Choose one amazing soundtrack, form a movie you watched, and get going. So many things to do, and whatever you choose, it won’t be a mistake. Not at all!
