The Games We Play

I have to admit I got this idea from Kevin's blog about Valkyria Chronicles. I loved his rendition of such a classic, and thought I would do my own based on one of my favorite games of all time. I took one of Obama's "Hope" posters, which I still say look way to much like some communistic propaganda posters I have seen in the past, and turned it into someone we can all get behind, dear ol' Sack Boy. For any of you who haven't played this game, you are seriously missing out. There are hours upon hours of fun that come with it. Seriously, check it out.

Fall Out 3 is another game that I just finished, and honestly can't wait to play again. It has an amazing atmoshere, a fun and engaging story and tons of possibilities as you choose whether to be good or bad in this nuclear wasteland that was once D.C.
There are some amazing places to visit and fun side quests to keep you busy for a very long time. I would suggest it heavily but I do warn against bad language and a lot gore.

I am also currently playing Far Cry 2, which is really fun with a HUGE open world, but the game play can get a little old sometimes. I still love it though and recommend it with the same warnings as Fall Out. I also played Resistance 2 but had a hard time getting in to it. It didn't feel like they did much to make the sequel bigger and better, and I didn't feel as sucked in to the story as I was in the first. I also recently finished The Force Unleashed and I loved it. It's definitely something that only Star Wars Geeks like myself will fully enjoy, but I still think it is fun for anyone who likes the Saga.

Up next for me is Mirror's Edge and Killzone. What are you guys playing?

Now that's change I can believe in - I'd take Sackboy over Obama any day!

I wish I could have gotten into Fallout 3 as much as you, sounds like you had an awesome experience. BTW, I had no idea you did the LBP Obama thing, it's awesome! You still need to play Valkyria Chronicles.
