best online multiplayer games

It is not always easy to bring all your mates together and get some fun playing co-op games. Fortunately, there are plenty of shooters, MMO RPGs, and sport simulators you can play anytime. Below you may find 10 best online multiplayer games that allow gamers playing together no matter where they are. 

10. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Also known as CS: GO, this is a legendary 1stt-person shooter released on PCs and Macs. ‘Global Offensive’ is the latest version which was published in 2012 following the Counter Strike series (if not to count a “zombie” spin-off). It attracts millions of gamers by amazing gun mechanics and realistic physics. There is also a battle royale mode called ‘Danger Zone’. 

9. League of Legends

Another old school title which is still being played by millions of users around the world. The reason of such popularity is simple: the game provides everything you are looking for in MOBA. You are free to select a standard 5v5 mode or join/create a custom one.

8. Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves can hardly be called an ideal game. The scenario feels pretty poor and obvious and the world is not too deep as it should be in a sea story. However, nothing can compare to its pirating gameplay. Just imagine that you need to make a crew of 3-4 people (one to steer, one on sails, one on cannons, and someone on patching) and lead your ship together to he fights with other crews. It’s awesome indeed!

7. Grand Theft Auto V 

GTA V is probably one of the most popular action-adventure videogame for various platforms (it is available on Windows, Xbox One/360, and PlayStation 4). Published by Rockstar Games in 2013, it still has millions of fans in the U.S., Europe, and Asia.
