I noticed on Twitter that today is Video Games day and that a lot of people were talking about some of their favourite video games. As a quick little bonus blog post for this week, I wanted to share just a few of my favourite games.
Pokémon Gold – Game Boy
I’ve talked about Pokémon Gold being one of my favourite Pokémon games a couple of times before. I was hooked on the Pokémon hype train when the franchise was first really at it’s biggest in the UK. The game holds some special memories for me personally as well as playing a part in my childhood.
I honestly loved everything about the game. The features, the soundtrack and that you were able to travel between the Jhoto and Kanto regions. Having Pokémon HeartGold released and also Pokémon Gold on the virtual console also allowed me to revisit my childhood.
Final Fantasy XV – Xbox One/PlayStation 4
This was my first introduction into the Final Fantasy franchise and I fell in love with everything about the game instantly. I’ve enjoyed it so much that I am currently in the process of replaying the game on PlayStation 4 and ultimately I am wanting to try and fully complete the game this time around. I thougherly enjoyed the story, the characters and was drawn in and felt like part of the story when I was playing the game the first time around. I’m excited to see what is in store next for the Final Fantasy franchise.
Now I know this isn’t a game specifically but a console but I wanted to mention it mainly as there are a lot of games that I really enjoy on the console as well as some of the upcoming games that I am really looking forward to as well.
I was a bit unsure about the Switch when it first came out but since having my own I have enjoyed it more than I ever thought I would. The variety of games that are available, the consoles portability and how easy it is to get others to join in and play multiplayer is amazing.
There are so many games that I could easily sit here and write about why I would class them as one of my favourite games. I really do not know how long it would take me but here are a few more games I want to mention.
- Pandemonium – PlayStation
- Rayman Advance – Game Boy Advance
- Tomb Raider 2 – PC
- Theme Park World – PC
- Call of Duty Black Ops – Xbox 360
- The Sims Bustin’ Out – Game Boy Advance
- The Witcher 3 – Xbox One
- Super Mario 64 – Nintendo 64
- Borderlands 2 – Xbox 360
Let me know what some of your favourite videos games are whether they are recent releases or a game that you played when you were growing up and have an awesome Video Games Day!
