Video games: make a cozy nest

MISE & Agrave ; DAY

Winter being the season par excellence for “cocooning”, why not take the opportunity to build the house, the city or even the universe of your dreams? & nbsp;

Let's start with the universe with the last “Anno 2205”, the sixth title of a very good franchise. After having developed the blue planet, you go towards the Moon to establish bases there. A planning game, this “Anno 2205” is distinguished by the quantity of buildings, the quality of the graphics and the objects – including flying cars – which inhabit your virtual home. And fans of the Ubisoft franchise can immerse themselves in the 1800s with the lavish “Anno 1800” and its many expansion packs, including … the holiday one.

A little less far into the future, but further in space, “Imagine Earth” transports you to unknown worlds. As an employee of a small company, you must colonize new planets and create a pleasant environment. You will also have to make sure that the corporations that already have control over natural resources do not overshadow you too much.

Now is the time to put my feet back on Earth. The first destination is “Minecraft”, a game that offers a completely free mode in which you can, thanks to the characteristic blocks of the title, build what you want, the way you want. To give you an idea of ​​the possibilities, please note that Denmark, through its agency Geodata, has recreated the country in its entirety there and that Reporters Without Borders has put online a library containing works censored in various countries around the world.

If you prefer to be guided in your adventures or have fun with real places, “Cities in Motion” offers you the possibility of improving the transport network of Vienna, Berlin, Helsinki or Amsterdam for 100 years, from 1920 to 2020. Expansions offer to transport you to Tokyo, Munich, Cologne or Leipzig, and even London, San Francisco and New York. In the same genre, but with a very different game dynamic, “Cities Skyline” takes you out of metropolises, with expansion packs available for nature parks and even green cities.

Always on the same principle, but with a nice “twist”, here is “Banished” (which literally means “Banned”). You control a group of people who have been banned and who must start their lives again. To develop your village, you must use your imagination, creativity and face the elements and nature, because remember that you only have a shopping cart.

Fed up with planets and cities, but feel like an owner? Here is “Project Highrise” in which you have to manage buildings all over the world. Tokyo, London, Las Vegas, Berlin or Miami are waiting for you.

If you just want the comfort of your own home, without having to manage anything, head to “Animal Crossing Pocket Camp For phone. In the heart of nature, you can build your camp by choosing from the thousand objects and the hundreds of clothes and accessories.

Also for the phone, “Design Home” allows you to have fun making the rooms of a house each more attractive than the next. On the side of “Home Design Story”, the graphics are more childish and it is possible to build a house (or a castle) in its entirety.

And finally, there's a game we haven't talked about yet, but which is establishing itself as the perfect destination to meet all of your virtual living needs. This is obviously “The Sims”, the benchmark in the field. The 'Cottage Living' expansion for 'The Sims 4' will take you to the countryside where you can build yourself an adorable farmhouse.

Waste of time (useful ) of the week

We were talking to you last week about black and white games. How not to succumb to “Calvino Noir”? Because this film noir-like title, in which you control three characters, invites you to discover magnificent places from the 1930s as you explore. The dream of every budding architect!
