Although it may sometimes seem that way, not all games are made in America, Japan, and western Europe. Some actually come from the eastern part of Europe, the land of ice and snow, cheeki-breeki memes, and Heavy from Team Fortress 2.

Jokes aside, the games from Russia and its general sphere of influence come in all shapes or sizes. In the table below you’ll find quite a few titles from Russian game developers, but some titles from Ukraine, for example, have also found their way there. Of course it’s just a selection from dozens of applicable games, but a useful one, and a balanced slice through the gaming output from that part of the world.
