You know the drill. You buy the newest game, play it for a few weeks, get bored of the repetition, swap it at GameStop, and repeat. But we all have those games that we will never get rid of. This is my list of games that will never expire. If you haven't already played these games (and loved them of course) you should. Let the game hoarding begin!
In no particular order. Except of course random.
Skyrim: Fighting dragons, magic, and swords. For me that is all that
needs to be said and you have my money. It takes a lot of time and a lot
of patience... two things I do not have. But I keep playing. When
someone asks me how I like this game I put it like this:
You know that chore you've been meaning to do? The one that is
very tedious and takes up too much time but you know that it HAS to get
done or you won't be able to sleep? That's this game... but in a good
2. Fable (Series): This has got to be my favorite game. I
played Fable 1 as soon as it came out and fell in love. Every detail was
perfect. The gargoyles had my sense of humor and I loved being able to
Then they came out with the second one. This time I
was prepared. The detail that they put into the first one was nothing
compared to this. I knew that this was my series of games. That nothing
Now lets not forget about the third. Many
people had problems with this one. Was it the best out of the three? No.
Were the characters as developed? No. But I have to say, (after playing
it over and over again.) I do still enjoy it. It hasn't made my love for
Fable die in the slightest.
3. Mass Effect (series):
another very tedious game. If you don't pay much attention to details
then this game is not for you. The story line is fascinating. Any and
every move you make shapes the entire game. When you get the the next
game it takes your character from the first and you just keep going. For
a gamer who likes to get emerged in a game you will want to buy this
4. Super Smash Bros (original): If you think I'm talking about the Wii game you should hit restart.... on your life.
World of Warcraft: If you don't play WOW because you think it's too
nerdy, takes up too much time, or just plan stupid... please, just try
the game! You don't have to spend countless hours on this game to enjoy
it. You don't even have to play every month if you don't think you'll
play it that often. There are no exceptions. Every gamer should play
this game. You not only get to play in a fantastical (yes) world, but
you learn so much about gaming.
6. Fallout (all): Yet
another game that will take forever for you to complete. When I first
played Fallout I remember wanting to just listen to the old school music
all day. As far as game play goes? Making a character will have you
want to kill yourself. Other than that it's great! Graphic are on point, the aliens are gross, and the characters are ridiculous. That damn robot was the best idea ever.
7. Grand Theft Auto 3: Yes, three! The new ones are
great. They are all great. But GTA3 never gets old! It was the first
game I got to kill, steal, and drive like a lunatic! Do I sound crazy
yet? Seriously tho, If you are too young to have played it when it first
came out (or live in a cave) go buy it and never return it. I still
remember the cheat codes for extra armor and guns. I also still go back
and play it at least four or five times a year.
8. Minecraft: Blocks on blocks on blocks on blocks. It's like digital legos!
DayZ: If you haven't heard of it yet look it up! In short, it's a real
time zombie game. Anything that can happen in real life can happen in
this game. If you die you are dead forever. You must start anew and try
better. It's as realistic as a game can be. As in, if 4 guns, 8 health
kits, 10 sodas, and 2 knifes can't fit in your real life backpack...
then it won't in this game either.
The grid isn't exact but they are still working on it. So if a zombie
looks like hes far enough away and you think you can make a run for
it... you probably can't. Using your best judgement is key to this game.
Did I mention this is an online game? So go make friends. Also hope to
(insert imaginary creatures here.) they don't try to kill you first!
10. Sims: We all secretly love this game. So stop pretending and go create a fake you in a fake home.

I worked today. I did a lot of working. I also work tomorrow! What is that? In no way am I excited about that.
Do I have anything to talk about today? NOPE!
What if I traveled forward in time and found out that I was a millionaire? I'd probably quit working. But then would I still be a millionaire in the future? Fuck.... now I don't know.
I didn't learn anything here today.
Am I a millionaire yet?
