Our Top 7 Games for January’s Platinum Collection

Platinum Collection Top Picks

Undecided on which games to pick? We’ve got you!

The Platinum Collection Build Your Own Bundle is back once again and as usual, it’s a great set of games. But deciding which seven to pick can be a tough decision, so here are our top seven games for the January Platinum Collection!

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Game of the Year Edition

The game that kick-started the overwhelming popularity of The Elder Scrolls series, this action RPG is a sandbox packed full of things to see and do and will last you for hundreds of hours.

Not only is the full game included in this bundle, but you’ll also receive the Bloodmoon and Tribunal expansions, which adds things like new story content, new locations to explore, weapons and armour to uncover, and the ability to become a werewolf!

Human: Fall Flat

The only thing better than a puzzle platformer with hilariously over-the-top physics is one where you can play with a friend in co-op!

Human: Fall Flat is an incredibly enjoyable time as you explore the vibrant worlds, all whilst trying to keep yourself upright. Perfect for those non-gamers to join in on the fun, with simple controls and a basic premise of getting from point A to point B (trickier than it sounds, believe us!) this is a genuinely unique title that is sure to put smiles on faces.

Death Road to Canada

Are you ready for a randomly generated roguelike road trip? No two runs are ever the same as your group of misfits battle huge swarms of shambling zombies. You’ll stumble across various story events (if you can last long enough) and recruit new members into your squad, or leave them for dead if you prefer!

This isn’t a game that takes itself too seriously though, so don’t be surprised to happen upon some quirky characters as you try to survive on the road to salvation, although not all of them are friendly!

Catizens

How could anyone not love this colony sim when its citizens are cats? Inspired by similar titles, such as RimWorld, players are tasked with building up their towns and expanding the skill sets of each settler.

Each cat will have a role to play, whether it’s farming, smithing, or protecting the town. Every settler matters as you aim to expand and improve to become the best (and cutest) town ever!

The Elder Scrolls Online

AN MMORPG set in the fantasy world of The Elder Scrolls series sounds like just what we need to sink hundreds of hours into!

Bethesda Softworks takes things online for the first time, and although it was initially released back in 2014, it is still going strong to this day! Despite the base game being absolutely stuffed with content, the numerous expansions have seen this multiplayer title grow to become a game that is close to impossible to complete 100%.

Organs Please

If you were a fan of Papers, Please, but felt it needed a little less dystopian misery and a bit more organ harvesting to fuel a spaceship, then Organs Please is the perfect game for your incredibly niche needs.

Not only will you need to decide which humans get to board the ship to escape a doomed Earth, you’ll also be required to select which of them are to be “recycled” into fuel, or food. For those lucky enough to be employed to work on the spaceship, you’ll then have to use your best base building skills to ensure you escape the planet successfully. Remember, you’re only kept alive as long as you’re useful!

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected

Whilst it may have started out as just another Grand Theft Auto clone, the Saints Row series really found an identity of its own. This becomes most apparent in Saints Row IV, which sees the leader of the Third Street Saints become President of the United States, before being captured by aliens and placed into a virtual simulation of the city of Steelport.

With a wide-array of insane abilities, customisable weapons, and a sci-fi inspired sandbox to explore, this final main entry into the original run of games is arguably its most fun yet!

Those were our top seven picks for January’s Platinum Collection! Have any of them caught your eye, or are you finally tempted to pick up a title you’ve been holding off on for a while? Either way, happy gaming!
