Working from home? Tweeting everything you normally do, but now with the hashtag #WFH? Talking to everyone on Zoom, because other video chat clients are unreliable? Yeah, we know that feeling. The Coronavirus has spawned a new revolution of working from home, and Zoom is just one of the apps that are benefiting from all of this madness. Not that we can complain, since for many of us office drones, it just means it cuts out the commute.

Zoom is a fun piece of software – aside from the whole talking-about-work thing – and you can even make talking about work a bit more lighthearted in these hard times with some fancy backgrounds for your webcam, which Zoom can insert into your camera feed using a bit of camera trickery, no fancy greenscreens or chroma key software required! Not bad at all.

Whenever we’re sick of it all and want to keep things lighthearted, we have video games, and we have picked out a whole bunch of video game backgrounds that we think are ideal for brightening the mood in your work chat today.

Just take a look below for our wide range of video game backgrounds, and let us know what backgrounds you are going to use in the comments below!

Animal Crossing: New HorizonsIt’s good to get away and get some peace, right? Well, that’s exactly the atmosphere that Animal Crossing: New Horizons lays down.

FirewatchFirewatch is atmospheric and beautiful, and that’s the sort of work environment we want.

The Legend of Zelda: Wind WakerThis is one of the prettiest games of all time, without question, and it even looks like a wonderful holiday destination. I want to visit, at least.

DEFCONLayout your mission briefing while the world burns.

BioShockNo King or Gods down here, only man.

BioShock InfiniteMore of the same as last time, except this time there’s airborne racism.

XCOM 2Get ready for war with your colleagues.

Mass EffectThe nightclubs in Mass Effect are the places I want to take the people I meet in real life.

HaloThis just looks like a peaceful background, but with an important and iconic background element.

The SimsThis is just a transparent PNG you can work into an image, above your head, for that Sims style.

Horizon Zero DawnThis game is gorgeous, even without the deadly machines. Who wants to get eaten, anyway?

Resident Evil 2The Raccoon City Police Station is iconic, and just might remind you of your own workplace, but likely a bit more unnecessarily opulent.

PersonaI am thou, thou art I.

Genshin ImpactGenshin Impact is a new one, but it’s gorgeous.
