What can I say? I’m board and felt like writing something lol
So I got the idea to do this list after watching a youtuber named TheTeshTube play a game called Fallout 3 and that made me think about how excited I am for Fallout 4 but then one thought came to my head, “you know it’s funny I love this game even though I’ve never played it and that I will probably never be able to play Fallout 4 but I still cant wait till it comes out.” Then I started thinking about some of these other games that I love but have never played before.
So here’s my Top Ten Favorite Video Games I Have Never Played
Before I get on with the list I want to say that all these games I will be listing I have never played because of one of two things, 1. I don’t have the money or 2. I don’t have the system for these games or my computer just wouldn’t be able to handle them. (The ‘newest’ system I have is the Wii :/ reason being because again money and because I think the newest systems are kinda ridiculous like the whole downing and going on the internet thing I personally think is stupid and unnecessary….I sound like an old man “oh back in my day we had to go to the store and actually buy the game from the store!” lol also DLC….fuck DLC)
Also all of these games though I have never played I know almost all there is to know about these games like the story and all that because I have watched Youtubers play these games all the way through about half a dozen times lol
Okay on with the list!10. Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines (Developed by Troika Games and published by Activision)
Released on: PC
Starting this list with vampires, who’s surprised?
*crickets* Yeah I thought so. So this is an action role playing game (already a plus, I love role playing games though I’m horrible at them). This is somewhat of an old game, released in 2004 so the gameplay…..the gameplay is bad that it’s good lol, I mean it’s not bad as in buggy and unplayable but it’s kinda…awkward and the graphics aren’t that great but hey it was 2004 what would you expect? So the story is about you becoming a vampire and basically doing a bunch of stuff for different people trying to advance the story. I really don’t know what it is about this game that I like so much it just looks like it’s fun to play and come on……vampires……this game was made for me lol
9. The Wolf Among Us (Developed and Published by Telltale Games)
Released on: PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, 4, and Vita
This game is a graphic adventure movie…..don’t know what that means? Anyone seen The Walking Dead video game? (it was made by Telltale also) that’s basically what it is, the game was released in “episodes” and it’s one of those games where basically depending on what you say and do affects and changes the story just like The Walking Dead. The Wolf Among Us is actually based on a comic book series by Bill Willingham titled “Fables” (I actually didn’t know this until Cry said it during his play through) I really like this game because well one I love games where your actions actually matter and changes the story a bit. I also really enjoy the characters and the story. This game really makes me want to read the comic series and I cant wait for season 2! I cant really explain the plot of this story since we all know how horrible I am at explaining things but if you liked the way The Walking Dead is played then you may enjoy this game.
8. Portal 2 (Developed and published by Valve Corporation)
Released on: PC, PlayStation 3. And Xbox 360
I’m not to big into puzzle games but I do love platformers! Okay but what can I say about this game that hasn’t already been said? The story is decent, the characters are hilarious and this is one of the few puzzle games that actually make it fun. I mean come on a portal gun, that itself is freaking awesome! And of course this game has one of my favorite villains of all time Glados. She’s freaking hilarious, she’s the only villain that can insult me all they want cause how can you get angry at her? If anything you’re dying on the floor of laughter. She’s a sarcastic bitch but she’s a loveable sarcastic bitch. So yeah Portal 2 come for the bad guy, stay for the gameplay.
7. Sims 3 (Developed by The Sims Studio and published by Electronic Arts)Released on: PC
I loved the Sims 2 ever since I saw my cousins play it and when I finally got it for myself my friends and family did not see me for at least a couple weeks cause I was so obsessed with the game. I mean come on you’re basically God controlling people’s lives, YOU DECIDE WHO LIVES AND WHO DIES! What’s not fun about that?!
I mean yeah it’s basically life simulator but way more fun with the expansion packs like Nightlife that added vampires, Pets that added werewolves, and Apartment Life that added witches. This is a game I would still play if SOMEONE hadn’t broken the desk tray to my computer -.- *glares violently at my dad*
6. Life is Strange (Developed by Dontond Entertainment and published by Square Enix)Released on: PC, PlayStation 3 & 4, and Xbox One & 360
This game is a graphic adventure game where like the telltale games you’re choices affect the story but with a very interesting twist, you’re character can rewind time. So if you made a choice that you didn’t like or are unsure about you can actually go back and undo your choice and choose the other option however something to be aware of no matter what your actions have consequences it’s just a matter of choosing which one you think is the better option. Now that’s not to say that you can undo EVERY mistake or choice you make, I’m not gonna spoil anything but let’s just say there’s one instance where you cant undo what happens so you HAVE to make it count. And of course once you leave a certain area you cant rewind and undo what just happened so you better consider your options carefully just because you have the power to rewind time doesn’t mean everything will be all sunshine and rainbows. Okay now this game isn’t completed there are still two more episodes that still need to be made but from what I’ve seen from this game so far I love it. A lot of people give this game crap because of the writing and some of the subjects the game touches on but that’s what I like about the game! I find the writing hilarious, and I like dark and depressing subjects because hey that’s life, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows like I said before it sucks, there are some dark and messed up things in this world, so I like when games touch on that stuff. Now keeping that in mind please if you are maybe considering playing this game be warned that depression and suicide are mentioned in this game so…..yeah 5. Red Dead Redemption (Developed by Rockstar San Diego and published by Rockstar Games)
Released on: PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
An open world action - adventure game. Another thing I love is open world being able to explore and go wherever you want sometimes is more fun then the actual game. Seriously if I had this game I would probably just steal horses and ride them all around the world for hours XD. This game actually kinda reminds me of Grand Theft Audio 5 in a way (even though this game came first) because it’s open world, instead of cars you can steal horses and carriages, you could be riding around and all of a sudden ride by shootings, animal attacks, ambushes, public hangings, and kidnapping could be taking place and you can stop it if you want. It’s actually been a long time since I’ve seen anyone play this game but I believe this game takes place in the old American west where the main character John Marston tries to get back his family that is being held hostage. An interesting thing about this game is they have this ‘morality system’ where you can gain positive or negative honor depending what you do so that’s a cool feature of this game. I like this game because of the open world, the story, and the main character himself is pretty cool (well depending on how you play him lol), and of course you can ride horses so that’s already a great game in my book XD
4. Euro Truck Simulator 2 (Developed and published by SCS Software)
Released on: PC
There isn’t anything really special about this game. You’re just a delivery truck driver who takes jobs and drives to different places to deliver things. Even so this game looks so fun for some reason! I don’t know why cause all you’re doing is driving (something that terrifies me in real life) but idk it just looks like a fun relaxing game to play. The graphics are very nice and it actually feels like you’re a real life truck driver. I don’t know why I want to play this game so badly but I do.3. Fallout 3 (Developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks)Released on: PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360
Another action role playing game but this one is open world. This game is set in the year 2277, 200 years after a war that ended in a nuclear holocaust causing the land to a post apocalyptic state. When I first heard about this game I was already hooked because 1. I love apocalyptic stories wither it be zombies or otherwise and 2. It’s an open world role playing game so before I saw this game it was already on my good side. Of course since this is a role playing game it is on the longer side but hey some of the best games are the longest. The main plot from what I can remember is you were born in Vault 101 one of the few vaults that actually stayed closed and refused to be connected to the outside world, however when your dad escapes the vault your world gets turned upside down. You escape the vault and now must search the wasteland for your dad. You’ll meet an interesting set of characters, and kinda like Red Dead Redemption honors system this game has a karma system. So you do good things you’ll get good karma, do bad things and you’ll get bad karma. I cant remember exactly what the karma does but it’s just one of those things that I think makes the game interesting. This game was really good so I cant wait to see what Fallout 4 will be like!
2. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (or Sly 4) (Developed by Sanzaru Games and published by Sony Computer Entertainment)Released on: PlayStation 3 and Vita
I grew up with the Sly Cooper series, every game that came out my cousin got and we would play them nonstop. I’ve always loved platformer games so this game was like heaven for me. I remember how excited I got when the second game came out and how amazed my cousin and I were that you could play as Bentley and Murray then by the third game (my personal favorite of the series) you could actually play as some of your past enemies! I don’t know what it is about this series but it just has a cretin charm to it that I’ve always loved. The characters were fun and loveable the plot was okay but got better over the series and the gameplay was just so fun and creative. So years later when I heard that Sly was actually getting another game I flipped out. I didn’t even care that it was being made by someone else, as long as the game stayed true to the Sly Cooper series I would be more then happy with it, and boy did this game deliver. The new art style did take a little bit to get used to but it still felt like a Sly Cooper game! The characters were still the same characters I had grown to love over time, the levels were very well done, and the story was pretty interesting. I think the developers did pretty well with this game and I’m happy they didn’t mess it up. (I hear there’s going to be a Sly 5 and movie so I’m very excited for that!)
Before I go into the top pick here are some honorable mentions - Alice Madness Returns, Phoenix Wright, and Sonic Generations 1. The Cat Lady (Developed by Harvester Games and published by Screen 7)
Released on: PC
(Okay before I say anything about this game I do need to warn you guys this game is very dark, disturbing, and touches on subjects like depression and suicide in fact the game revolves around those two subjects so if that makes you uncomfortable then I highly recommend you don’t play this game.)
This game…..words alone can not express how much I absolutely love this game. This game is actually a adventure, psychological horror indie game. Everything about this game is just amazing, the characters, the story, the art, the music, everything! Like I said before I love dark, depressing, and disturbing things so this game is right up my alley. The story is about a woman named Susan Ashworth (kickass last name btw), a depressed middle aged woman with no friends, her only companions being stray cats. One night Susan decides to take her own life by taking a bunch of pills however instead of killing herself Susan meets a strange old woman who refers to herself as the Queen of Maggots, she gives Susan immortality and tells her that she must get rite of five people who she calls ‘parasites’ and Susan can not die until she does. I love Susan she’s a bitchy, sarcastic, no nonsense kind of person and I love that about her and I could relate to her and her struggle with depression and suicidal thoughts cause I have felt the same way as her before so for the whole game I was just routing for Susan to overcome her depression and move forward with her life. By the end of the game I just remember crying because it was so moving and honestly this game has a great message. If I could play this game I would in a heart beat, I cant tell you how many times I’ve seen play throughs of this game cause I just love it so much. Though it may be to disturbing or to dark for some but again that’s one of the reasons I love this game. Having dealt with depression and wanting to kill myself I really appreciate this game for touching on those subjects cause it’s a struggle many people deal with and I personally think Susan represents what a depressed person is going through and how they feel. Oh and when you find out what made her so depressed you just want to hug her! It’s so sad. Again the ending is just beautiful well…depending on what ending you get because there are actually three different endings you can get to this game. Most people prefer the ‘good’ ending but I actually enjoy the normal canon ending more because it’s bittersweet and to me more impactful and real but that’s just my personal opinion oh and the song that plays during the credits is just beautiful it’s the perfect way to end the game.
So here guys go my top ten favorite video games I have never played, if you havnt heard of any of these games I highly suggest you look them up (at your own caution epically with The Cat Lady for reasons I explained)
