We’re at the end of August, and that means that people are going back to school if they aren’t there already. While most people think of going back to school as a horrible occurrence, it doesn’t have to be all bad! There are plenty of video games out there with prominent school settings, and many of them are great. Here we’re going to list off 5 of the best games to play that have school as a prominent aspect of the game.

Persona

When it comes to games set in a school, it’s hard to not immediately think of the Persona series. The games bring you a loveable cast of characters that you get spend a lot of time with, and that includes being in school with them and taking classes. The Persona series mercifully cuts out the boring bits and keeps things moving when it comes to the actual school aspect, making this an easy inclusion on this list. You’ll instead be more engrossed in the fantastic RPG gameplay and character interactions, which are spread throughout dozens of hours of gameplay.

Danganronpa

The next entry on the list takes things in a decidedly darker direction, with the Danganronpa series having what is basically the last school you would ever want to go to. Hope’s Peak Academy rounds up the most talented kids around, and then locks them inside a school and tasks them with killing each other without getting caught. A trial then follows, and if the killer is found then they are killed in a gruesome, disturbing fashion. So yeah… this should get you back in the school mood spirit!

South Park

The two recent South Park games have been some of the finest licensed games we’ve ever played, and each one of course has a prominent school setting. While you have much more freedom in these games and go many other places than just school, the characters themselves are still students and school is a very big part of their life. It just so happens that they’re also involved in some hilarious hijinks involving nazi zombies and lots of fart jokes.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

This game is the most recent release on our list, with Fire Emblem: Three Houses recently launching exclusively for Switch. While it offers more of the beloved SRPG gameplay that fans have come to expect, what really won many over is its prominent school setting. In fact, many people are calling the game the Harry Potter game they’ve always wanted, as it features a campus similar to Hogwarts filled with interesting characters and locations for you to explore. Doing well in school requires a lot of deep thinking, and Three Houses will also make you do just that.

Bully

The final game on our list is a classic from Rockstar Games called Bully, which is an action-adventure game set in a fictional town of Bullworth. The game has you controlling a student as he tries to rise through the ranks of the school system. Seeing as the game is open-world, it allows players to explore more than just the game’s school. Still, you’re tasked with taking down the school’s bullies and attending class, so the school aspect of the game is very prominent. While the game launched all the way back in 2006, there have been rumors that the game could be getting a sequel at some point.

Feeling a bit buzzed The Last of Us Pedro Pascal from HBO wins SAG Award

Pedro Pascal may have indulged in a few too many Dark ‘n’ Stormy’s before the 2024 SAG Awards, where he clinched the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Joel Miller in the HBO adaptation of The Last of Us. Appearing slightly intoxicated, the actor portraying Joel confidently stepped onto the stage and stated, “This is incorrect for several reasons. I’ve had a few drinks. I believed I could become intoxicated. Thanks, HBO! Oh boy, I feel a bit embarrassed, but I really appreciate this.”

Pascal faced tough competition from Succession actors Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, and Matthew MacFadyen, along with The Morning Show’s Billy Crudup. He emerged victorious for the award and, seemingly oblivious to his defeated competitors, remarked:

“I’ve been in the union since 1999, so this is a tremendous honor. “We’re on Netflix,” Pascal noted, mentioning the streaming platform’s position on censorship. “I might experience a surge of anxiety and decide to depart.” Pascal expressed gratitude to showrunner Craig Mazin, Naughty Dog head Neill Druckmann, colleagues, and production staff for their valuable contributions.

REYNATIS appears as a rugged yet strangely attractive action RPG for PS5 and PS4

It’s unfair to criticize the time it takes to develop PS5 and PS4 games, only to then judge REYNATIS for appearing a bit messy. Developers are investing significant sums in creating high-budget games nowadays, so maybe it’s about time we adjust our expectations and embrace slightly less polished releases instead.

This introduction sets the stage for FuRyu’s latest game, which could easily fit in as a late-gen launch on the PS3, but that doesn’t take away from its potential for enjoyment. A team of former Square Enix employees created this game, which explores a power struggle among magicians in Shibuya. Some aim to flaunt their abilities, while others prefer to keep them hidden.

The setting is truly remarkable; having visited Shibuya, it captures the essence of the iconic location perfectly. The combat appears solid, but there are performance issues to address, especially with the Japanese release scheduled for July 25th. Although there has been no official announcement regarding a Western release, we anticipate that a publisher will likely pick it up later this year.

Leaked footage of LittleBigPlanet Hub on PS3 brings a nostalgic wave

Once upon a time, Sony revealed Little Big Planet HUB, a free-to-play exclusive for the PS3 available on the PS Store. It seems that the game will merge all the content from LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2, giving fans the opportunity to play, create, and share without any cost. The concept was ambitious, which likely made the platform holder hesitant.

It is common knowledge that the planned release in August 2013 never materialized, with many speculating that it evolved into Little Big Planet 3. More than a decade later, footage from a beta version of LittleBigPlanet Hub has surfaced after an old NDA expired.

There is not much that is unexpected here: the gameplay resembles LittleBigPlanet, featuring floaty physics, prize bubbles, and narration by Stephen Fry. It’s intriguing to come across cancelled titles such as this one. A free-to-play version of LittleBigPlanet could potentially thrive in today’s landscape of creative live services similar to Roblox and Minecraft.
