In addition to the similar games listed above, which have been linked to this game specifically in the database, you may find games with a similar theme to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Seige in the following lists:
When a young child shines at activities like chess, playing the guitar, maths, tennis, football or public speaking parents and carers are used to recognising talent and helping them develop. However, when a child rises to the top of their age group in competitive video games we are often blind to their talent and opportunities.
The British Esports Association
is a not-for-profit national body established to promote esports in the UK, increase its level of awareness, improve standards and inspire future talent.
It helps teachers, parents, carers and advocates distinguish between obsession and discipline in their children’s video game playing. This opens the door to the adults in children’s lives being ambitious about their game playing and celebrate successes as they would when children pass music exams, win at football and so on.
Esports offers an opportunity not only to prize money (at the top level) and status, but international recognition, travel, personal development and career potential. There are many roles in esports outside of the professional player position, such as coaching, content creation, management, commentating, production and more.
Below is a list of games that are all played competitively in competitions that require high skill, training and talent. Unlike other video games, Esports are typically played competitively with many people tuning in to watch tournaments online on livestream platforms such as Twitch. British Esports
also runs the British Esports Championships for school and college students aged 12+, and has also partnered with Pearson to offer the Level 3 Esports BTEC, the first qualification of its kind.
Play is more fun when it’s shared. This is as true about video games as it is when building a massive sandcastle on the beach or playing hopscotch in the playground. Finding brilliant team games is a great way to involve more people in the fun and share the experience together as a family. More experienced players naturally help novices contribute to the team.
Along with teamwork, the games I’ve selected here use the fact that players are all sitting next to each other.
These are games where players take on different roles in order to complete unusual tasks. The fun is often as much about the conversations (and arguments) that happen in the room as what’s happening on the screen.
Video games are often known for their gunplay. However, not all shooting games are the same. The simple aiming and firing mechanic is creatively combined with other aspects of play that greatly alters the experience.
While some games add novel or fast-flowing movement to augment the shooting experience, Hero Shooter games expand the experience by offering different characters to play, each with specific abilities and shortcomings.
In the same way that fighting games encourage players to move an intricate move-set of a fighter (to become their "main" on-screen avatar), character-focused shooting games offer a wide range of styles of play across a diverse cast of people.
This not only adds novelty to the otherwise repetitive nature of shooting games, but changes how they are played more generally. While you may go head-on at enemies in a tank-style character, a medic, ranged attack or specialist character will need to be played in different ways.
How hard a game is considered to be depends on who is playing it. A three-year-old tackling Zelda will struggle. But equally a new-to-games-parents will find Mutant Mudds
quickly gets beyond them. The games in this list are known for being difficult. They wear the difficulty as a badge of honour. "None shall pass," except this with the will, time and belligerence to get good enough at this particular activity to beat the high bar the game sets.
This might be grappling with the flying mechanics in Rocket League
, getting endlessly lost trying to find the next guardian in Shadow of the Colossus
or coming up with the right tactic to get enough money for the ship you need in Elite
. Of course, some of these games can be made easier, but to play them at their best is to ramp up the difficulty to max (crushing on The Last Of Us
for example) and let them give you all they've got.
Video games usually let us step into the role of the hero. Sometimes our heroics result in many henchmen or even innocent bystanders getting killed. But our hearts are thought to be in the right place.
The games on this list, however, are all great examples of where you intentionally ruin other people's days. Whether that's playing the blood sucking alien in Carrion
or just stealing, breaking and hiding things in Untitled Goose Game
it's both intriguing and entertaining to not play by the usual moral rules of the game.
Then there are games where you think you are doing things for the right reason but this turns out not to be the case, like Braid
or Spec Ops The Line
. Or games where the slow drip of doubt builds until you regret your actions, like Shadow of the Colossus
Some shooting games focus on quick reflexes and super-fast reactions. Others aim to recreate a realistic feel of the battle. One way they do this is to encourage players to communicate with each other to win.
Squad based shooting games pit large groups of players against each other, and then split each side into smaller squads or platoons of players. Each squad needs to communicate with each other to stay alive. But also, each group must communicate with each other to coordinate their attacks -- often via a leader selected in each squad.
There are also some offline games that focus on the squad as the gameplay mechanic. Games like Spec Ops: The Line
develop a connection between the player and their comrades for narrative effect.
