I gave you my to-read list the other day, so I figured I would share with you the video games that are on my list to play next. (Summaries from Wikipedia.)
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Released: November, 2011
Skyward Sword follows an incarnation of the series protagonist Link who was raised in a society above the clouds known as Skyloft. After his closest childhood friend, Zelda, is swept into the land below the clouds
by demonic forces, Link does whatever it takes to save her, traveling
between Skyloft and the surface below while battling the dark forces of
the self-proclaimed "Demon Lord", Ghirahim.
I am actually well into Skyward Sword already. No Zelda game has beat Ocarina of Time in my humble opinion, but this one is still pretty darn fun. Full review to come.
The Last Story
Set on the fictional Lazulis Island, the game's story focuses on a group
of mercenaries from a desolate continent as they seek work, discovering
the world's slow destruction in the process.
I'd never heard of this before a friend mentioned recently how good it was, comparing it to Final Fantasy and insisting the story and gameplay are matchless. How have I not heard of this before? I'm playing it next, because it sounds fantastic.
Chrono Trigger takes place in a world similar to Earth, with eras such as the prehistoric age, except that humans and dinosaurs share the earth; the Middle Ages, replete with knights, monsters, and magic; and the post-apocalyptic future, where humans and sentient robots struggle to survive. The characters frequently travel through time to obtain allies, gather equipment, and learn information to help them in their quest.
Considered by some as one of the greatest games of all time. I know, I know. How is it I have not played it yet? It's on my to-do list.
BioShock is set in 1960, in which the player guides Jack after
his airplane crashes in the ocean near the bathysphere terminus that
leads to the underwater city of Rapture. Built by the business magnate Andrew Ryan, the city was intended to be an isolated utopia, but the discovery of ADAM, a plasmid
which grants superhuman powers, initiated the city's turbulent decline.
Jack tries to find a way to escape, fighting through hordes of
Some of my friends rave about this one. Some of them don't care for it. I haven't quite decided if I'm going to play it or not--it sounds kind of dark, but apparently the storyline is amazing.
Played any of these games? Thoughts? What's on your to-play list?
