I’m sure I am not alone when I say that I have games in my collection that I am slightly embarrassed to say I have played at one point or another. I guess you could say they are more guilty pleasure games. When I started writing this post I was thinking more around games I played when I was growing up and then mixing in more recent games but it just became a bit of a mess. Instead, I decided to go with more recent games instead.
Before I get started and reveal those games, I just want to give a big shoutout to Her Gaming World’s post which gave me the inspiration to share a few of my own guilty pleasure games from over the years.
This was one of the first games I purchased when I first got my Xbox One. I had heard so many mixed reviews about the game and many of my friends who had played it simply hated the game so much. I however really enjoyed the game. Although there were a few moments where I rage quit and wanted to give up on the game I eventually completed it a couple of times now and just have a handful of achievements left to get at some point.
Who hasn’t been curious about this game? You’re a goat and you go around destroying everything you can. Simple as that. The game is a great laugh and if you are like me I just run around hoping for the best.
Star Wars, Batman, Harry Potter. Name the Lego game and I’ve probably played it. I’ve had people ask me why I play the Lego games before and simply it is because I enjoy them and they are pretty straight forward games you can pick up as and when you want. I grew up playing the likes of Lego Loco, Lego Racer and Lego Rock Raiders. It’s nice to see how they have developed and expanded over the years.
I don’t even know how I ended up playing Farming Simulator. It just kind of happened one evening when talking with some friends but I loved every second of it.
There were many games I could have chosen to feature in this blog post but I felt that these four would be good to reveal. I may one day reveal a few more but for now, they can remain a secret.
As I mentioned at the start of this post, it was inspired by Her Gaming World’s recent blog post about Five Guilty Pleasure Games from her Childhood. You can check out her post here and also check out her Twitter here.
