So we are getting close to the time of year I love most...Thanksgiving (American version 2.0)! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It gives me an excuse to eat way too much without people judging me. Actually, they are likely still judging me but whatevs. Anywho, I figured I'd give you all a list of games I'm thankful for to mark the occasion. Note this isn't a top game list, just games that I am thankful for, for one reason or another
As you can probably tell from my avatar, I'm a huge Limbo fan. One of my favorites of all time. Limbo and Inside showed me that more isn't always better. They are shorter games, with tight gameplay, and the story is told through gameplay. They are beautifully crafted and it shows what can be done and that some times less is more and for that I am thankful.
This game was an absolute shock to me. I got it on a whim because I was bored and man did it deliver. It is definitely a top GOTY candidate for me. This game gave me all kinds of freedom to play the game how I wanted. At a time in my life when I felt like I had no control, it was perfect. It helped get me through some tough stuff this year and I will forever remember it as that.
A Link to The Past
I won't get in to an argument over what the best Zelda game is (it's A Link to the Past FYI), but I will say that this is the game that set me on a path toward being a gamer. I fell in love with everything about it and it made me want to play more video games. It was just perfect to me and remains one of my favorite, if not my favorite games of all time
Perfrct Dark N64
This game is probably the game that I have gotten the most play time out of. Ever. I'd hate to guess how many hours were spent playing this with friends. It is in my opinion one of the best ever FPS. I loved the ridiculous characters and story and the splirt screen co-op and multiplayer kept me coming back. This game also introduced me to my best grade school friend I had. Thanks Perfect Dark!
Knights of the Old Republic
This is quite simple actually. I love Star Wars and I love video games and this combined the two. For me this was the best Star Wars game ever. The quintessential RPG. Big props to BioWare for making my two loves come together.
So what games are all of you thankful for? Not necessarily your favorites but ones you are thankful for. Recap time!
Mashed potatoes are best potatoes
S - Xeo gives us a blog looking at some of the stuff he's been dealing with as of late. A tough year, but he takes solace in our community here. I really like Xeo and am glad he's here with us. I hope things start turn around for such a good guy
D - EvilCoGames gives us a look at the development of their upcoming game project. They are an indie team working on Star Story: The Horizon Escape. It's a nice look at what they are currently working one
D - DinoSir gives a nice look at one of his upcoming projects. He gives a look at SuperSportsball, namely the art direction. From what I am seeing, this looks like it will be a fun game and hopefully a smash hit!
