The China Post has selected 10 great games for the enjoyment for your friends, family, and yourself so that you won’t have a boring vacation.

今年的年假共有9天超長假期,在這9天中除了四處跟親戚、朋友拜年之外,另一個要做的事當然就是玩電玩囉!《The China Post》特別為玩家挑選了10款可以自己玩、也能和家人朋友同樂的好遊戲,讓你在年假時不怕沒遊戲可以玩!

‘Dragon Quest Builders 2’ (PS4/Nintendo Switch) | 《勇者鬥惡龍創世小玩家2:破壞神席德與空蕩島》— PS4/Switch

Like its predecessor, gamers have continued to dub Dragon Quest Builders 2 as a “Spiritual Time Machine.” Well, I feel the same way on this. Very often, I felt like I’ve only built a couple of houses yet several hours had already been stolen. In Dragon Quest Builders 2, not only can you play the game in the mission sequence, you can also utilize your imagination to build your own village. This is a game that is suitable for all kinds of gamers.

延續《創世小玩家1》的好評,這次《創世小玩家2》依舊被許多玩家稱為「精神時光屋」,記者本身也有這種感覺,常常只不過覺得蓋了幾間屋子而已,結果就被偷走了好幾個小時。《創世小玩家2》可以照著任務順順走、也能盡情發揮想像力打造屬於自己的村莊,對於任何類型的玩家都相當適合。

‘The Scroll of Taiwu’ (Steam) |《太吾繪卷》— Steam

In “The Scroll of Taiwu”, a RPG that went viral after its release on Steam in September last year, players play as “Taiwu” to fight against the villain “Xiang Shu.” Time often slips away without a trace in the process of training the next “Taiwu” —this is a great game for you to kill time.

去年9月在Steam平台發售後,隨即造成超級大爆紅的武俠角色扮演遊戲《太吾繪卷》,更被玩家譽為真正「會呼吸的武林」,玩家在遊戲中扮演代代相傳的「太吾」來對抗邪魔「相樞」。而在培養下一代「太吾」的期間,時間也是不知不覺間就會流失掉,是款殺時間的好遊戲。

‘Judgment’ (PC) |《審判之眼:死神的遺言》— PC

“Judgment”, an action-adventure game starring famous Japanese actor Takuya Kimura, after its release in December last year, had widely received positive reviews. The plot consistently takes a big turn at the end of each section, making you crave to find out the subsequent story development. The gaming experience resembles one of watching an intriguing Japanese TV series. We truly recommend this game to those who enjoy watching Japanese Drama, or those who had never been exposed to the Yakuza series.

由日本知名男星木村拓哉主演的偵探懸疑遊戲《審判之眼:死神的遺言》,去年12月發售後獲得玩家好評,劇情每個章節最後都有大爆點,讓你忍不住想要趕快看到接下來的發展。整部劇情也就像在看一齣精采日劇一樣,相當推薦給喜歡日劇、或是從來沒接觸過《人中之龍》系列的玩家。

“Resident Evil 2” (PS4/Nintendo Switch/PC) | 《惡靈古堡2 重製版》 — PS4/Switch/PC

How can you spend your Chinese New Year without red? The gore from “Resident Evil 2” would supply you with all the lucky red you’d ever need for this Chinese New Year! Not only can you play it on your own, you can also play it with a couple of friends at night – we guarantee that you would have a drastically different gaming experience this way!

過年怎麼少的了「紅色」呢?《惡靈古堡2 重製版》滿滿的番茄醬要給你今年最大的紅喜氣!除了可以自己一個人玩、享受暴君和利卡滿滿的壓迫感之外,也相當適合晚上找三五好友一起壯膽來玩,保證會有和一個人玩時截然不同的遊戲體驗!

‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ (Nintendo Switch) |《任天堂明星大亂鬥 特別版》 — Switch

When one speaks of a family game for Chinese New Year, one cannot forget “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate”, a game that successfully captivated all types of gamers. With the simple controls and tons of iconic characters, this game is definitely one of the best for a CNY family gathering. Since the game looks great even if the player is just mashing random buttons, this is definitely The Game for hyping up the atmosphere!

說到過年闔家同樂遊戲,那一定少不了從休閒到職業所有客群都吃下的《任天堂明星大亂鬥 特別版》。撇開職業方面不談,本作絕對是過年集會時最適合拿出來玩的遊戲之一,簡單(?)的操作、超多知名角色任君挑選,就算只是亂按一通也很有可看性的遊戲風格,過年炒熱氣氛的遊戲就決定是你了!

‘Super Mario Party’ (Nintendo Switch) | 《超級瑪利歐派對》 — Switch

Other than the aforementioned “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate”, “Super Mario Party” is another great family game. One might even argue that it’s a better multiplayer game than Smash Bros.! The high number of minigames, and the game mode that resembles monopoly, allows the game to fully realize the festive, party gaming experience as promised in its title.

繼上面提到的《任天堂明星大亂鬥 特別版》之外,另一款能與和親朋好友一同享受的遊戲,甚至可能還比大亂鬥來的適合多人遊玩!超過80種的小遊戲、還有大富翁類型的遊戲模式,如同遊戲名《超級瑪利歐派對》一樣,玩家在遊玩時就能感受到派對的歡樂氣氛。

‘New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe’ (Switch) | 《New 超級瑪利歐兄弟U 豪華版》 — Switch

The next game that recommends is still a game by Nintendo! “New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe” is a better version of the “Super Mario Bros. U”, a game made for the Wii U Console. This game, which utilizes the classic side-scrolling design, can allow up to 4 players to play simultaneously. We guarantee the 164 stages in the game can definitely bring back everyone’s beautiful memories.

接下來推薦的還是任天堂的遊戲!《New 超級瑪利歐兄弟U 豪華版》是將原本WIIU平台的《超級瑪利歐兄弟U》 移植到Switch的加強版。本作採用了瑪利歐最經典的2D橫向卷軸式玩法,而且最多還可以4名玩家同時遊玩,關卡也多達164個關卡,絕對可以喚起每個人小時候最美好的回憶。

‘For Honor’ (PS4/Xbox/PC) |《榮耀戰魂》 — PS4/Xbox/PC

Being a game that was given out for free during PS Plus of last February, this is definitely a game that is worth a try. Since its release in 2017, the Viking, Knight, or Samurai game mode had won the heart of many gamers. Although the “Exiles” game mode was added last year, gamers do not have access to it in the free version of the game. If you are a fan of action games, this is definitely a good chance to try it out!

2月 PS Plus 送的免費遊戲,當然要好好的來試玩一下囉。《榮耀戰魂》2017年發售後,遊戲中「維京、中世紀、武士」三大風格擄獲許多玩家的心,而且去年更新增了「武林」第四陣營。不過很可惜的是免費版並沒辦法玩到「武林」,如果玩過之後對這種砍殺遊戲很喜歡的話,趁這個機會入坑也不錯哦!

‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ (PS4/Xbox) | 《碧血狂殺2》 — PS4/Xbox

What? Isn’t this game released last year during October? Bear with me, but considering the recent sale on PS4, there must be a lot of players new to the game. In that case, “Red Dead Redemption” is definitely a must-play game for CNY. You can enjoy the lifestyle of a cowboy in the Wild West and go on a killing rampage anytime as in GTA. The only shortcoming of the game is its slow-paced plot at the beginning of the game. Be sure to make it through the first half!

什麼?這不是去年10月推出的遊戲嗎?不過考量到最近一波PS4超級大降價,想必有很多初入坑的玩家,那麼《碧血狂殺2》也絕對是過年必玩的一款遊戲囉。不但可以享受西部牛仔的生活步調,還能像GTA一樣見人就殺。不過唯一比較可惜的就是劇情比較慢熱,千萬要撐過前面啊!

‘God of War’ (PS4) | 《戰神》 — PS4

We’ll leave the climatic ending spot of the list for “God of War”, the “2018 Game of the Year”. Even though “God of War” was released last year in April, our reasoning remains consistent as for “Red Dead Redemption 2”. We want to recommend this game for gamers new to this game. With its smooth graphics, impressive long takes, and the evocative plot, if you don’t experience “God of War” during CNY, you have wasted your holiday!

最後壓軸的就留給2018年度最佳遊戲《戰神》!雖然戰神去年4月就已經發售,但是理由如同上面提到的《碧血狂殺2》一樣,是專門推薦給新入坑的玩家。流暢的動作、驚人的一鏡到底鏡頭、加上容易引起玩家共鳴的故事情節,如果新入坑還不趁過年時體驗《戰神》,那麼這個年可是白過了哦!
