Sometimes it’s nice to take a break from books and talk about some other things you’ve been obsessed with. These all don’t have to be in the same category. Mix it up! What TV shows have you been enjoying, makeup you’ve been wearing, food you’ve been eating, etc.??
For this I’m actually going to be sticking to one category; video games!!
When I’m not doing something with my daughter or reading a book, I can usually be found playing video games. I’m definitely a more casual gamer than I used to be but there are still several games that I have loved the heck out of recently.
5. Bioshock: The Collection
My wonderful husband got me this for Christmas. I had never played the first two games before but had pick up Bioshock Infinite not long after it had originally been released and I fell in love. So far, I’ve finished the first game and it was just as amazing as I thought it would be. I’m maybe about 1/3 of the way through the second one and am still just as impressed so far. This T5W has also remanded me that it’s been a couple weeks since I’ve played this as well.
4. The Sims
Specifically, The Sims 3. I’ve been a Sims junky since the first game came out when I was still in high school. I’ve always considered it one of my guilty pleasures, mostly because of the teasing I get when I tell people how much I freaking love these games. I haven’t made the jump up to The Sims 4 yet. I’m not sure if I ever will since I love 3 so damn much and I don’t have a lot of money to invest in all of the explanation packs.
3. Dragon Age: Inquisition
This one I’ve been playing less and less of now that I’ve played through it at least a dozen times but that doesn’t mean I love it any less. Thedas ranks high on my list of favorite game worlds and I have to admit that have a weakness for rich fantasy worlds filled with tons of lore.
2. The Elder Scrolls and Fallout
I’m putting these two together because they both deserve to be on this list and they both rank at about the same spot on my favorites list. I put Skyrim down a while ago and haven’t played it in a while but I will always love and be ready to jump into it. Fallout 4 was my crack for a while. I loved everything it had added to the game and the fact that it was set in Boston (my most favorite city) was only an added bonus.
1. The Mass Effect Trilogy
I have no words to describe how much I love these games. I have played through the entire trilogy more times than I can count and every time I fall more and more in love with all of these amazing characters. I can’t tell you how excited I am for Mass Effect: Andromeda’s release next month. You will all probably lose me come March 21st.
