my favorite video games

so i’ve come to realize how often i write about music, and i’ve decided to change things up this week. i’ve played a lot of different games throughout my entire life, but some are so near to me that i have to put my opinion of them out there. these are games that maybe i’ve played once and fell in love with, or ones that slowly grew on me after months and months of replaying them. nevertheless, every game on this list i have a significant connection with, and i’m going to tell you exactly why. so, without further ado, here are my favorite video games.

fallout 4

so this is almost close to being the most hated fallout game in the series, but it holds its place as my favorite video game ever despite. my stepdad got the game when it first came out in 2015, but told me i was too young to play it at the time. i was so fascinated when i watched him play it, and as soon as i was able to, i picked up the game myself. when i first beat the game, i immediately started a new save file and began to play it again. the storyline was so addicting and fun to follow, and i grew such close connections with all of the characters. it’s an open-world game in which there are many random encounters, and that makes it such an enjoyable experience for me. so far, i’ve played this game as least once a year since i first picked it up, which was around when i was 12 or 13 years old. as i type this, i am currently playing the game. after so many years of playing it and exploring it, i still have not seen all of what the game has to offer. no matter though, it will hold such a strong place in my heart.

the legend of zelda: ocarina of time

so, this is my other favorite game of all time. i was first introduced to it when i was very young, and i quickly fell in love. there are so many little details in this game that i could fantasize over and over about, but the atmosphere is what i’m going to focus on. this atmosphere in this game is top tier. the music first off has always had it’s own place in my head. years and years after initially playing it, i could still remember the music that went with each area crystal clear. i swore it was like i could recite them without even trying. the storyline and scenery change that happens after you age up is so well done and disturbing, it still freaks me out to this day. if i could, i would play this game over and over, but sadly because of it’s age, it’s very hard to play it efficiently when i only have it on my old nintendo ds. oh well, honestly such a great game nevertheless. 

ghost of tsushima

i got this game when it first game out, and it completely broke me. i remember playing it intensively throughout the week, letting everyone in the house know my initial reactions to certain scenes. the graphics is where this game truly shines. there are so many beautiful open-world scenes, and the shading and lighting really help those areas reach their fullest potential. the storyline is fun and interesting, heartbreaking and not fair, but it is so fulfilling in the end. also, the best part, you can pet foxes. yeah you heard me. you. can. pet. FOXES.

the sims 3 

so, i love every sims game in the series. i never played the first one that much, but i’ve been playing all the rest since i was super young. when i was around 5, all i would play is the simpsons hit and run and the sims 2. then, when i was in my older elementary years, i played the sims 3 every single night. then finally, when the sims 4 was announced, i preordered a limited edition version of the game and that’s the one i’ve been playing ever since. however, the sims 3 will forever hold its place as my favorite. i love the open-world feeling to this game that was completely lost in the sims 4. this game is infinitely better than all the rest in the series and i long for the day that i can play it again. wait, actually, i can play it right now on my laptop. i’m going to go do that, cya. 

the legend of zelda: breath of the wild

this isn’t my next favorite zelda game in any way, shape, or form. but, there’s something about it that ranks as one of my “favorites” rather than just one of my favorite zelda games. the graphics are beautiful, and the storyline is almost up there with it. i love most of the mechanics, but some i do find a little unnecessary. still, i love this game a lot. i definitely recommend it for any new zelda fans, but still do remember to check out the originals first:)

what a fun little blog !! i definitely enjoyed it, let me know if you did too:) gooooodbye, cya next week.

  1. I personally have not played any of these, but I love to hear about how each are meaningful in a different way just like when you talk about some of your favorite songs or albums.
