1Games about pandemics

I’m sure the last thing we all want to think about right now is the pandemic.

But no matter where we go, we’re reminded that the planet is dealing with the spread of a seriously infectious disease. Like many of us, we’ve kept our mind off the real world by playing video games. There’s nothing better than jumping into a fresh world with unique characters, beautiful landscapes and, most importantly, no risk of actual death.

That being said, who doesn’t love a good apocalyptic/pandemic story? When it’s not the real thing it can be fun… right? It gets our mind off the outside world and has us focusing on the more important issues – keeping our fictional characters alive in dangerous, make-believe universes.

We’ve put together a list of some of our favourite video games about pandemics, viruses or plagues.
