What is better than Minecraft to start a noob and finish a professional builder whose imagination and skill can change an entire landscape of a game. Minecraft has always stood for freedom and creativity where even noobs can become overnight sensations. But it’s not only about building because this game also has a survival mode where what seems like a walk in the blocky park turns into a game of survival when the night falls. Many creatures will be ready to attack but only the prepared crafters will survive the onslaught. Still a noob you may be, but after dipping your fingers into Minecraft you’ll get the courage to take on more difficult challenges and games.

Rayman Legends

Rayman Legends

Timing a perfect jump requires skill and Rayman Legends is an ideal platformer to acquire some. It starts off like any other 2D platformer with running, jumping, and punching but with every level progressing it soon turns into a unique platforming experience. Soon you’ll be floating in shoot ‘em up levels, running and timing your attacks and jumps according to classical music or remixed rock ‘n roll tracks, and sneaking around to avoid being detected. Rayman Legends has 6 unique worlds, each being more mesmerizing than the other. Additionally, as a bonus, you can unlock and play through the levels of Rayman Origins. Top that with character skins, time challenges, and various mini-games, and you’ll sink countless hours into this beautifully looking platformer and develop and level up many of your gaming skills.

Sid Meier’s Civilization games

Civilization 6

4X games stand for exploring, expanding, exploiting, and exterminating, and what better way to level up all of these four skills at once than building and managing your won civilizations. Sid Meier’s Civilization series has always been one of the best turn-based strategy games that required not only strategic thinking and planning but also developed these skills both in gaming and in real life. No, we’re not encouraging you to become a real-life dictator, but strategic thinking is a skill you can level up and utilize in more areas than video games of any genre but also in real-life situations and even your career. Civilization games may cause you to evolve beyond mere video games!
