8 Games for Gamers Who “Prefer” Playing Solo


For the players out there thinking about what games to play on Valentine's Day (cuz there's nothing else that really needs thinking about), don’t worry, we got you. We put together a list of games to keep you busy ranging from RPGs, fighting games, and co-op games to keep you busy for today. Here are Game8’s games to enjoy for both the lone wolf and the wolf pack alike.

Embrace The Singleness

Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty


First on our list is the massive FPS RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, also with its massive expansion in Phantom Liberty. There are a lot of things to keep you busy here like the numerous side jobs, gigs, and the lengthy story that’ll surely affect you in a certain way. Also, there are a number of different romance options available, where there is definitely one for everyone. It took a while for the game to get to its initial hype, but it’s finally arrived at its pre-release glory.

Also for the maximum feels trip, you can also go ahead and watch Cyberpunk: Edgerunners while you’re at it. It won’t disappoint, but it might make you cry.

Persona 3 Reload


Next on the list is Atlus’ remake of the high school sim JRPG cult classic Persona 3 Reload. It aimed to completely change the game from the ground up with updated visuals, combat mechanics, and a modernized control scheme. It also has a few options for romanceable NPCs, but sadly it’s still not confirmed whether or not the PSP version’s female route will be a future DLC.

While it’s debatable whether or not it was a completely faithful remake, one thing is certain, it will definitely eat up your time just to beat the main story once, and more for the completionists out there. Also, it’s on Game Pass! So that alleviates a few costs if you were planning to play the game.

Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth


Next up is RGG’s latest JRPG entry Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth. Ichiban and Kiryu are back in the spotlight in this drama-filled story which has the former going to Hawaii and the latter holding it down in Japan. Being another JRPG entry, it will surely eat up your time just from the grind to strengthen your party alone. However, the game is from the Like a Dragon franchise, which means there are a ton of side quests, minigames, and activities that you can do to pass the time.

Did I also mention that both main characters are just 100% stand-up dudes doing all the right things no matter what? They can act as your role models of goodness, hard work, and diligence! Minus of course, joining an actual gang.

Friendships Before Relationships

Helldivers 2


Next on the list is Helldivers 2 and it’s the game that definitely invokes patriotism to the highest degree. This is the perfect co-op third-person shooter for fellow solo players to squad up and spread Managed Democracy across the galaxy as part of the elite Helldivers. It’s a game that’ll require skill, teamwork, and communication with your team for better odds against the alien bugs and the deadly robots.

It’s time to do your part and help in the fight against threats against Democracy, Freedom, and Liberty.

Granblue Fantasy: Relink


Granblue Fantasy: Relink ticks all the boxes for a fun game. It has multiplayer, mission variety, amazing progression, a good story, and many more. To add to all of this, there’s a ton of character variety as well that leads to different experiences for every character you get to control. There is also a lot of waifus from the original Granblue Fantasy game here, so there’s also that (shoutouts to the fellow Katalina fans out there).

With the amazing gameplay loop and the option to play solo and with a squad of 4, it’s a game that’ll definitely stick with you for a pretty long time, and it’s good that it’s a pretty fun time as well.

Spend Time With the Waifus (And Husbandos)

Baldur’s Gate 3


I know that this game has already gotten its flowers from last year, but there’s no denying that this game is THE best CRPG game in recent memory. With the multitude of things to do, choices to make, and characters to romance, it’s a game that, quite frankly will have you glued to your screen for a long time.

With different romantic options in the game, all with different scenes and results, it’s the perfect game to quell your curiosity as well as to pass the time. Baldur’s Gate 3 also comes with multiplayer so you could potentially squad up with your fellow gamers and wreak havoc across Faerun.

Love and Deepspace


Love and Deepspace is a mobile otome game that has been making the rounds on social media. It has a very attractive art style and a surprisingly good story for each of the characters that you can choose to be your partner. The game is primarily a dating sim and has you interacting with your chosen partner through 3D graphics that’s honestly pretty good for a mobile game.

They’ll also be interacting with you off the app through notifications and are also completely free to play, so no need to worry about costs for this game to have a good time.

Final Fantasy VII: Remake


With FF7 Rebirth coming out very soon, there’s no better way to prepare for it than to play the previous game. Personally, I would say that the game is an amazing experience for people to get into the Final Fantasy universe, as FF7 has been regarded as one of the better gateway drugs into the series. With a shift to the action RPG genre, it puts more focus on each character’s identity and adds more emphasis on their gimmick in gameplay.

Plus, what better way to hang out with some of the best waifus in JRPG history than Tifa Lockhart and Aerith Gainsborough? Rebirth is a game that’s been anticipated for years now, and I think it’s time for you to get a head start on knowing the story already by finishing the first game of the Remake trilogy.
