So many of us are lonely during this games holiday season. We may be sick, or have sick family members. Or maybe everyone in your family is healthy, and you’re being responsible by not having a large gathering.
Which is where games come in.
These 10 online games from Microsoft’s Game Pass Ultimate service all offer that sense of community and togetherness that we may be missing during this holiday season. A good game, played with friends and family.
Many of these games are about spending time together, and being together in a way that feels better than just a phone call or a text message. We also attempted to avoid the most obvious choices here; it’s always nice to try new things, especially when the only thing you have to lose, thanks to Game Pass, is a little bit of time.
We hope you decide to give some of these a shot, whether you’re playing with your family group at home on the same screen, or playing online with voice chat.
Minecraft began as a game of creation, imagination, and survival depending on which mode you were playing.

3. FALLOUT 76: STEEL DAWN
Bethesda has been patching and overhauling Fallout 76 since its 2018 launch, and there’s no online UFABET game that fits the same niche.
4. GOLF WITH YOUR FRIENDS
The trick to good social games is to make sure that failure is at least tolerable, and hopefully part of the fun very important game.
