Gamer Alternatives for the 4th

If you're looking for something to do this 4th of July that doesn't involve going outside or dealing with fireworks, there are plenty of gaming options to keep you entertained. Because goodness knows that going outside is lame. The sun. The heat. It's evil. And the bugs, particularly the mosquitoes. And the face to face social interaction. Why must we put ourselves through such torture?

Sarcasm aside, the festivities have been on-going for my area since Friday, and there are 2 more nights to go. It gets exhausting and a nuisance when you have pets that don't like loud noises. So finding alternative activities is a must so one doesn't become burnt out. One can enjoy the 4th without having to celebrate it the traditional way. So here are some gaming things you can do over the next 2 days:

- Summer Games Done Quick has launched. The yearly event raises money to go to Doctor's Without Borders. The variety of games is astounding, ranging from NES to PS4, and all with a myriad of goals. Mostly, get them done fast! Some of the players hold world records for the game, or are considered the top of the speed range. Last year's Metroid run was an amazing feet to watch. And it all goes to a good cause.

- Feeling nostalgic? It's difficult not to during the 4th, so take the time to play some classic games. WhatCulture has a list of 20 of the best PlayStation games released in the early 2000's. And the great thing is, most of these titles are available to play/download on Steam and PSN. The list isn't bad either. Who doesn't love smashing cars in Twisted Metal?

- Or catch up on some YouTube comedy channels that throw in a few games? Crixeo created a list of 5 YouTube channels to watch that are great for the 4th when you need to hide from that one aunt that likes to kiss everyone. Ew.

- And if all else fails, the Futurama mobile game is out and includes the original voice cast. I can you say no to that?

Happy 4th of July!
