We love our video games in America. Idaho is a state that offers millions of uninhabited, pristine acres of wildland to enjoy, which is why I would compare life in the Gem State to a video game released in August of 2022.

I'm not a hunter, but getting outdoors is something I do quite often when I have some free time. Hunting is incredibly popular in Idaho, and just about everyone I've met in my years as an Idaho resident are avid fans of the hobby.

In 2022, the most popular video game in Idaho was Hades, according to online data that tracked sales of games across the United States. I was a bit shocked when I read this, because it's a game where a player maneuvers a sword-wielding warrior through various dungeons, and I guess ties into Greek mythology. I wouldn't have guessed this to be that state's most popular game because I figured it would have something to do with the outdoors.

Way of the Hunter came out last year and has some of the best graphics I've ever seen in a game. This would be my choice If I had to pick a video game that best describes the Idaho lifestyle.

Heck, I would have thought Farmville would be more popular than a game like Hades. Or, how about Company of Heroes? Military games are among the most popular worldwide.

Mudrunner is another game that I would think would top some Idahoans' favorite list. Who doesn't love a good, old-fashioned off-roading game?

Oh well, play on players.
