Since the universe has forced me into reinventing my blog/content, I’ve decided to merge more of my tech side into this blog. I know most of you come here just for the cats (and I don’t blame you), but maybe some of you are closet nerds and are interested in letting some of that nerd out. So for those readers, behold! The 5 video games that I’ve been wanting to play (but am too poor to afford all at once)!
Goat Simulator – I just had to insert the trailer for this because seriously… how can you NOT want to play this game!?! It’s only available on Windows right now, so you console gamers are out of luck. Basically, it’s just a massive open world game where you are a goat and you get points for destroying anything and everything. Sara, I know you love this whole idea. It’s not even that expensive ($9.99 on Steam), but I just haven’t gotten around to buying it.
Child of Light – I’ve heard everyone from Felicia Day to well, everyone, talk about this game. While it only has a 6.5/10 on Polygon, I think it’s a beautiful looking game and having a compelling female lead? Yes please! The game costs $14.99 on Steam, which isn’t too bad for a game.
Titanfall – I’d say aside from MMORPGs, FPS games are my favorite style of game to play. I’ve always been and always will be a big Call of Duty fan (even if they do smear the franchise through the mud going forward……) and Titanfall has that same feel to it. Except, you get big massive Titans to control, jet pack things and graphics that are to DIE for. The game is $59.99, so definitely up there as far as costs go. And of course you can either pay an extra $20 up front for the Season Pass for the DLCs, or you can buy them as they come out.
The Elder Scrolls Online – I love the Elder Scrolls universe. I actually really like anything set in Medeval Times, with dragons and magic and anything like that. I was able to get into the beta to test for a bit and overall really enjoyed the game, but it’s quite expensive which is really the only reason I haven’t purchased it. The game itself is $59.99 and after your first month, you’re charged a monthly subscription fee of $15. I love video games, but not $240 into one game for the first year. No thanks. When they (eventually) drop that subscription, I’ll be all over it.
Mass Effect 3 – Guess who is late to the party? This girl. Mass Effect 3 is ranked 10/10 on Polygon and really the entire trilogy I’ve heard is incredible. I think I picked up ME2 years ago, tried playing it but got super bored with the video cut scenes. I think I just didn’t give it a chance. I’m pretty sure I can get the entire trilogy for under $50, so maybe it’s one of those games I can just binge on once I’m back from California. Because really, who wants to stop a game and pick back up week(s) later?
So there you have it, my top 5 want-to-play video games! If you game, do you have any recommendations? I do have an Xbox 360, but I’m predominantly a PC gamer.
