Independence Day is a strange holiday. It’s a day where unsupervised kids set fire to public property, fleets of firetrucks sing the song of their people, street beggars switch their cardboard scribbles from “really hungry” to “army veteran,” and more red meat is consumed than can possibly be healthy (or safe for the cow population of North America). It’s also a holiday that’s falsely dated, as the Continental Congress actually voted for independence on July 2nd — regardless, the 4th of July is still a day that represents freedom. And what better way to enjoy that freedom than to ignore all responsibilities and play video games until it hurts to turn away from the monitor? Here’s Hardcore Gamer’s top four games to play on Independence Day weekend.
