Before we go any further into the world of the games, I think it is important to take a pit stop and actually reflect on games that are actually my favourite. I grew up playing predominantly Playstation based computer systems so a lot of the games on this list are going to be from that format as there are a lot of them that i truly adore and have made me fond of certain types of games today.
When I think about ‘favourite games’ computer games are the type of games that spring to mind because I don’t think I really think of board games as a favourite. They are fun and I enjoy playing some of them but a lot of them are just there to be played now and again not all the time. I find with computer games, you can play them over and over again, with or without another person and enjoy them the same or even more then you did the first time round, where as with board games, it can be predictable, the same over and over again and also not very exciting.
So here are a list of some of the games that are my favourite. There are too many to go in one blog post so here are some of the creme de la creme that really shine a light and lead the way.
Crash Bandicoot Warped
Crash Bandicoot dominated a lot of my childhood as I loved playing platform games and this cuddly critter was one of my favorites. I loved this game, it was so clever on so many different layers. I loved that you had a whole array of things to collect on the levels, not just gems but also relics. You never minded redoing a level because they were addictive and so much fun. I never could get enough of this game and as I write this I still want to play it right this second.
Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko
This game always made me laugh it was such a fantastic game but was a bit silly as well. It was based on James Bond and was about a gecko who was trying to save a lady who was a real person who had very low cut tops. The thing I loved about this game was the cleverness of the levels, the themes such as Egyptian, red riding hood, Rome, space etc and that you just wanted to keep plying it over and over again. As I sit here writing this, it is another game that I want to be sitting here playing as I could play it for hours.
Tony Hawks Pro Skater 4
Tony Hawks was another game that I was brought up playing and have a very soft spot for it. The reason I chose Tony Hawks Pro Skater 4 is because this game in particular holds a very close place in my heart. There is so much play ability in the game and everytime you play it there is always something new to come across such as playing baseball with your skateboard, betting on strippers etc. The thing I love about this game is I remember the first time i got to the last level, i was feeling sad as i was near the end then BOOM a whole new game entirely opened where you had to complete pro skater challenges it was amazing and really held such a high bar in my heart for Tony Hawks game.
I have never had any interest in Final Fantasy however when I came across a game with Disney characters involved i had to try it. At first I wasn’t sure about the game but as soon as I started getting to the Disney worlds I fell in love with the game and the concept. I loved it so much it was so amazing again how it all linked together. The only thing that is annoying on it is the fighting but and how long bad guys can take to kill.
