Gaming is not just a hobby to me. It is a lifestyle. I have been gaming ever since I first got my hands on a Nintendo and since then, there has been no looking back. You can see the way gaming has adapted over time, from playing on a TV screen to playing virtually, there are even money earning games for people who want to get a bit of extra cash and still have fun. Today, I am sharing a list of my top 5 video games of all time.
There has never been a game as good as GTA V. The usual Grand Theft Auto gameplay takes a fabulous new turn with this game and I must say that I love it. Before this, I played GTA: Vice City and it instantly became an addiction for me. Games before GTA were very creative within a box. With GTA, I got the ability to move around as I liked while working on missions of my choice. It felt like living a second life and I loved it too. I have also played GTA: San Andreas but the overall quality and experience of GTA V beats every other game in the series.
Super Mario Brothers
This game packs in a lot of nostalgia for me. Every kid who grew up playing this game knows its importance in their life. Back in the day, saving Princess Peach was the most interesting thing I had done in my life. Till date, I have not found a way to relive the same excitement in any video game ever. Though the game doesn’t boast of the best graphics, it is still one of my favorite games and also one of my prized possessions.
Halo: Combat Evolved
This was one of the first shooter games I played on my Xbox and I immediately fell in love. Before this, I avoided shooter games on these platforms, simply because they couldn’t provide the same stimulation or gameplay. However, Halo was an absolute game changer. Fighting against the Covenant alien was interesting as fighting against Flood and I still play this game sometimes. It is a perfect analogy of what a shooter game should be like.
You will not find a gamer who isn’t in love with Half-Life 2. This game created the very concept of a first-person shooter game in a dystopian future and I was quite enthralled while playing it. I have always appreciated the game play here, as it remains smooth and steady. Playing Gordon Freeman in this game, I have always assumed that the sheer power of a studio to craft such a beautiful tale is mesmerizing. They have truly created a game I would love forever.
This is arguably one of the best games I have played. I even love watching teams live stream like gameplay. It looks very real and relatable and I also get to experience collective gameplay like never before. Counter Strike gives you an option to be divided into two teams- terrorists and counter terror squad and you move along with your team for a fantastic ride.
