Today we are tackling a question that is most likely in ALL video game challenges:
What is your favorite game?
I always have a hard time answering these questions because my interest in game change from time to time. So… I have a few games listed that are or have been my favorite at one time or another. Most of these titles may not be a surprise to you
Tropico 5 –
Tropico 5 is probably my current favorite game that I am playing right now. Tropico 5 is a civilization building game where you are the President of a small island. You start in the Colonial Era where you are dependant on a larger country to extend your mandates and provide some financial assistance. You develop your island and progress through the Eras with increasing difficulty. Obstacles you may face are pirates raiding your island, hostiles, drought, disasters, military coups and rebel uprisings just to name a few. You have to balance your leadership with the well being of your people and make money in the process. It’s a great economic tool and you literally control EVERYTHING! Even how much your citizens are making! It’s super fun and super addicting!
Gears of War –
Gears of War has made my list of Favorite Game before. This was one of my first Xbox 360 games and really the first time I engaged in the Online Multiplayer World (aside from Unreal Tournament). Following the Cogs and Locusts in their battle for supremacy, shotgunning enemies, using the torque bow to tag them and watch them explode. It’s gorey, but it’s great! Gears of War will always make my list of “Favorite Games.” I rant more about Gears of War here!
Modern Warfare 2 –
Call of Duty was a passion of mines for a longgggg time. The very first midnight release that I’ve attended was the Modern Warfare 2 release. This is by far my favorite Call of Duty game of all time and of course had to make the list. I rant and rave about this and other COD titles in my Ranking’s Post. You can review them by clicking here!
Mario Kart –
Mario Kart is a staple in many millenials’ lifetime. The original Mario Kart was fun but my favorite is Mario Kart 64. The Nintendo 64 is probably my favorite console of all time. MArio Kart 64 is sooo much fun and to this day I can play it for hours with my brother and friends. I would use Yoshi or Daisy if Yoshi isn’t available to rain down havok on the other karters. Favorite Stages are Wario Stadium, Bowser’s Castle and Koopa Troopa Beach!
I’ve ranted and raved about Fable many, many times. This is one of my favorite video games of all time. I loved the story, decision making system and abilities in this world. You can read more about my times with Fable by clicking here!
Civilization Revolution –
Civ Rev is the strategy game by Sid Meier created for Xbox 360. It was my first experience with the Civilization games and I had so much fun playing it. Funny enough, I started playing the demo with a friend just to pass the time and fell in love with the series. Now I’m playing Civ V and Civ VI on PC and Civ Rev was the starting part in this adventure.
Finally to round out my favorite games Oblivion has to make the list. Oblivion was one of the 1st single player story games that I was able to play on Xbox 360. I was immersed in the world of Oblivion operating as a member of the Fighter’s Guild, Thieves Guild, Mages Guild and Dark Brotherhood while not losing my standing with any of my comrades. It was a great game and has truly made me appreciate RPG’s.
Those are my favorite video games! What are yours? Let’s talk favorites!
