Play The Game

Here is my top three games of all time as part of
Alex J. Cavanaugh's It’s All Fun & Games Blogfest.

Resident Evil series

I couldn't pick just one from this series, from the first time I played the original on a friends Playstation I was hooked on the series and was always anticipating what would come next. With very compelling story lines the franchise has spawned countless games across all platforms, several films (live action and animated), a series of novels, comics and a hell of a lot of merchandise. Resident Evil is survival horror at its best.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

Full of eccentric characters, pop culture references and carnage, Vice City is my favourite among the Grand Theft Auto series. Other GTA title may have bigger maps, longer story lines, better graphics, more content and the ability to swim but what Vice City had was a greater sense of fun with is huge list of crazy characters, numerous pop culture references (mainly gangster films) and its dark humor.

Uncharted 2 Among Thieves

With most games that you play, you can usually find some things that you don't like or things you would change about the game, it is very rare that you will find a game that is ,for a lack of a better word, perfect, but Uncharted 2 is a game where I can find no faults. Among Thieves mixes an intriguing story with amazing graphics, great gameplay and plenty of action, adventure and humor.

Just missed out:
Star Wars The Force Unleashed, Red Dead Redemption, Super Mario Bros 3, Super Mario Kart, and the Mortal Kombat series


  1. oooh! love the illustration! but never played any of the games. :)

  2. Excellent computer games! My list could've been all PC games, but I decided to mix it up a little.
    Thanks for participating in the blogfest.

  3. Great computer games - I love those things - cut my teeth on PacMan (love him so!) - but went with the memory-lane games today.

  4. Nice blog. Great games. Nice meeting you. :)

  5. Neat! Mario Kart is a favorite in our house - that probably should have made my list.

  6. Great computer game picks. Nice to meet you. I'm a new follower from the blogfest.

  7. Red Dead Redemption. I know it was an also-ran on your list, but I've heard a lot about it.

    Now Grand Theft son got me hooked on that for a while. Still recovering.

    Great look on the blog!

  8. I haven't played either one of these, great pics though

  9. My childhood games consist of a pencil, paper and tons of time. I loved drawing as I grew up. I drew up storms of stories and now, I get to write them! :D

    Can Alex save Winter from the darkness that hunts her?
    YA Paranormal Romance, Darkspell coming fall of 2011!

  10. UNCHARTED is about to be made into a movie, but they are having some problems with preproduction.
