Favourite Video Games

Hi guys, I hope you are all well. Today I wanted to talk about my favourite video games. I have been really getting into gaming recently so I wanted to share my enthusiasm with you guys. I wasn’t much a gamer when I was younger but I’ve definitely become more of one now. I know it sounds really silly but when I was younger I never thought I was good enough to play video games. Now I just put that out of my head and enjoy playing the game – it doesn’t matter if I’m good or not as long as I’m enjoying myself. These games are in no particular order. Anyway, let’s get started.


The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Developer: Grezzo

Published: Nintendo

Initial release: 1998 3DS release: 2011

Genre: Action adventure video game

Console: Nintendo 3DS

This was the first Zelda game I ever played. I didn’t play the original but the remastered version for the 3DS and I loved it. There were a few places that I got a bit stuck on but I really enjoyed playing this game and have replayed it a couple of time since.


Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Developed & Published: Nintendo

Release Date: 2017

Genre: Action adventure video game

Console: Nintendo Switch

I finally got Switch this year and I immediately got my hands on a copy of this game, since I had wanted to play it ever since it was released. While it is quite different to previous games in the franchise, it is fantastic game and I cannot wait for the sequel.


Horizon: Zero Dawn

Developer: Guerrilla Games

Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment

Release Date: 2017

Genre: Action role playing video game

Console: PS4

This is such a good game. I loved the game-play and Aloy is a fantastic protagonist. I really hope we get a sequel to this one.


Tomb Raider

Developer: Crystal Dynamics

Publisher: Square Enix

Release date: 2013

Genre: Action adventure video game

Console: PS3

This is a reboot of previous Lara Croft games and is the first in a trilogy of games. While I enjoyed the other two games, the first game is definitely the best, in my opinion.


The Last of Us

Developer: Naughty Dog

Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment

Release date: 2014

Genre: Action adventure survival horror video game

Console: PS4

I didn’t think I would ever play this game as I’m not a zombie fan and I don’t like horror, but I was persuaded by my sister to give it a go and it is a fantastic game. I found it pretty stressful to play, especially in a certain canteen, but I cannot wait for the sequel.


The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt

Developer & Publisher: CD Projekt

Release date: 2015

Genre: Action role playing video game

Console: PS4

This one is actually being released on the Nintendo Switch this month, which makes me want to replay it.


Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Developer: Naughty Dog

Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment

Release date: 2016

Genre: Action adventure video game

Console: PS4

I played most of Uncharted 3 but didn’t actually finish it so this is the first Uncharted game I completed. I have also completed Uncharted: the Lost Legacy.


Okami

Developer: Capcom

Publisher:

Release date: 2006

Genre: Action adventure video game

Console: PS2 & PS4

I originally played this on PS2, but I didn’t complete it until the PS4 edition. It’s such a unique game and I enjoyed playing every second of it.


Assassins Creed: Syndicate

Developer: Ubisoft Quebec

Publisher: Ubisoft

Release date: 2015

Genre: Action adventure game

Console: PS4

I can’t remember which AC game I played first but it might be this one. I really enjoyed that it was set in London and I loved Evie as the female protagonist. I also really enjoyed AC 2,Origins and Odyssey.


Pokemon: Soulsilver

Developer: Game Freak

Publisher: Nintendo

Release Date: 2010

Genre: Role playing video game

Console: Nintendo 3DS

I’ve played a lot of pokemon games in my time and this one remains my favourite. I have to admit that I’ve recently lost a bit of my love for this franchise. Each game is pretty similar to the last and I think I’m kind of past that now.


Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Developer: Intelligent Systems and Koei Tecmo Games

Publisher: Nintendo

Release date: 2019

Genre: Tactical role playing game

Console: Nintendo Switch

Finishing this list off with a new favourite of mine. I have been playing this game a lot over the last month or so and I’ve been loving it. I’ve never played a Fire Emblem game before but I definitely want to check out more.


Honourable mentions: Age of Empires II (PC strategy game), Jak and Daxter: the Precursor Legecy (PS2 open world platform game), Spider Man (PS4 action adventure game), Astral Chain (Nintendo Switch action adventure hack and slash game) and Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask (3DS action adventure game).

 

Currently playing: Octopath Traveler demo (Nintendo Switch – turn based role playing video game) and Hollow Knight (Nintendo Switch – Metroidvania video game). I don’t know if I will ever complete Hollow Knight though. It’s a pretty tricky game and I’ve had to put it down a few times due to my frustration levels. 

 

Games I want to play at some point: Fire Emblem Warriors, Red Dead Redemption 2, Night in the Woods, The Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening, A Plague Tale: Innocence, Persona 5, Planet Zoo and more.


That’s it for today. I am currently on the hunt for new games to play, so if you have any recommendations for me leave them in the comments, please. What’s your favourite video game? I’d love to know. I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.
