5FF: Video Games I Love To Play

Kingdom Hearts

I’ve yet to give my favorite game a Saturday Suggestion post but it’s coming. There’s so much story to KH that I know I can’t do it justice with a summary but I will do my best with a lengthy review for each game. I’ve had the privilege to play just about every single one including KHUX on android. The story, characters, and game play always bring me back in with each new release of this series.

Skyrim

Another of my all time favorite games and one of the few I have purchased twice (once for PS3 and once for PS4… Don’t judge me!). This one is also long overdue for a Saturday Suggestion. As a game artist I can appreciate the time it took to create such a beautiful environment, life-like characters, and realistic clothing and weapons. It truly is a beautiful game with hours of game play. It has its share of bugs, but it’s open world and has many good points. Hats off to Bethesda for amazing work.

The Sims

I love The Sims! I’ve been playing since the beginning, and it was definitely an inspiration for character modeling for me. It led me to texturing clothing which led me to learning how to 3D model. It’s a nostalgic feeling to play, and it can be new and exciting with the new games and expansion packs. It’s definitely a game with a lot of replay value and opportunity for a new gaming experience each time you play it.

Catherine

Catherine has been sitting in the Saturday Suggestion cue for months. It’s a great puzzle and choice game with several endings. There’s some NSFW-ness but it’s a great game if you love making choices and puzzles. I like the art style and the way the choices instantly affect your game play. One of the best puzzle/choice-based games I’ve played in a long time.

The Wolf Among Us

Finally, a game on this list with a review! You can check it out here. Another game whose art style steals my heart. Tell Tale games has a unique style all their own (check out Borderlands!). I love choice based game play, and they really hit the ball out of the park with this one. I also love re-tellings of fairy tales, and this is a very gritty version of some of my childhood favorites. You can read my review for more information!

  1. I actually never played any game on this list except for Skyrim which I unfortunately didn’t like haha! At least I didn’t like it on Xbox 360, maybe I should play it on pc.

    My recently posted top 5 list included: Ori and the Blind Forest, Rocket League, Abzu, Last day of june, and Stardew Valley. It almost looks like we have a completely different taste of video games haha!

  2. Great picks! I’ve never heard of Catherine, but I am at least familiar with the other titles on your list (and have played most of them)! I really enjoyed the many comments you made about each game’s art. It showed how much you appreciate each title.

    If I were to narrow down my favorite titles to three, I’d choose Harvest Moon games (and, by extended love of these games and RPGs, Rune Factory), Zelda games, and Kingdom Hearts games. These titles almost never let me down, and are always a reliable choice if I’m in the mood for a game. Art style is definitely an influencing factor when I choose games.

    1. Catherine is definitely one I think everyone should play. I have a feeling it’s going to be one of those games that everyone will be trying to get their hands on (like Rule of Rose).

      I’ve said before that I have yet to play a Zelda game. Well thanks to The Dragon’s Tea Party’s suggestion, I’ve started playing The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and I love it so far! I can see why the series is so beloved by its fans!
