Video: The games within games that could have ruined everything

Plus more from Outside Xbox.

If you find a game hidden within another game, and you're as easily distracted as us, chances are you'll wind up playing that instead of getting on with saving humanity or your family or whatever the mission was supposed to be before you got sidetracked.

Here are seven games tucked away inside other games that nearly spelled doom for any poor suckers relying on our videogame protagonists.

Just Cause 3 is out next week, bringing the trademark Just Cause blend of parachutes, grappling hooks and many, many explosions to Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

It also includes a wingsuit, which we are now using to solve all inter-office disputes, as you'll see in this episode of Show of the Week featuring the first ever Just Cause 3 gameplay on Xbox One.

Finally this week, The Elder Scrolls Online's second piece of official DLC is here, allowing you to discover the Orc capital city of Orsinium in Wrothgar.

It's got a huge new questline, rideable bears and, more importantly, these weird spider hamsters that really freak us out. Watch us on a voyage of discovery through the new locations.

Thanks for watching, Eurogamer readers, and for still more Outside Xbox videos, give us a visit at outsidexbox.com.
