The Great White North is known for many things. Food, culture, and beauty are the first which usually come to mind.

This has actually been the case for a long while now, with new industries popping up for modern entries into the video game market. In this article, we’ll go over just a few of our favorites so far, with many more yet to come.
What list of games in Canada would be complete without an entry of this national Canadian pastime? The National Hockey League is one of the most watched and enjoyed experiences in Canadian media, so it was only natural that it would make its way into video games. This is a very long-running series, with its first entry all the way back in 1991. It makes sense that you would go to the authority on hockey when making hockey games, and EA Canada has proven that faith well-founded.
Video games have a lot going for them when it comes to diversity. Not just in terms of what they cover, but in terms of who they cover, their influence is very wide-ranging.

Online casinos in Canada are incredibly popular and profitable, with newly developed games like Mega Moolah pulling in and dishing out millions of dollars a year.

Simply put, the newer Deus Ex games are some of the best modern versions of classic games, and some of the rare ones which can actually hold up.
The most-recent reboots into the Tomb Raider franchise, the team at Crystal Dynamics have really outdone themselves when it comes to this series.
