My generation, the people born during in the 1990’s, really jumped on the video game bandwagon. Why not though, right? Countless amazing works of art have been born into reality from the minds of video game designers and writers. In my opinion, video games are nothing short of a modern miracle. Although some folks may abuse this awesome activity, there’s no denying the joy these games bring to us all everyday around the world.

Video game history is a broad one to say the least and with almost no limits inhibiting one’s gaming desire, we are left with endless choices to make when searching for entertainment these days. Sports, shooters, builders, role playing games, puzzles, adventure, and mysteries to name a few, fill the digital categories database of game titles. The rise of online gaming has brought us something which may bring an end to console gaming in the near future. This something is called Steam, and if you’re a gamer and not familiar, you must be living under a rock. So many cheap games and epic mods can be found on Steam so if you haven’t checked it out yet please do. Break free from the mainstream consoles sometime and give Steam some love, you won’t regret it.
A few of my favorite genres I enjoy on a regular basis include, role playing games, zombie shooters, and usually anything involving leveling up a self created character. To name a couple games specifically, I can definitely put my back behind titles such as Final Fantasy, Resident Evil, Fallout, the Elder Scrolls series, The Evil Within, and Assassin’s Creed.
The Fallout series is by far one of the best franchises to ever hit the industry and let me tell you I have really been enjoying the newest edition to the family, Fallout 4. By the way, in a few weeks here the new DLCs will be hitting the market. Everything about Fallout, even down to the little things, like those dancing monkey things with glowing eyes you find around the wasteland, make exploring the various futuristic ruins quite a treat. Playing through the different endings of New Vegas literally made one of my summers fly by in a second, and to this day, I still go back and kick Caesar’s ass regularly.
If I were to pick my favorite video game series I would probably lean toward Final Fantasy. My reasons being, I can’t get enough of the leveling and battle systems they offer in their various titles. Final Fantasy 15 is the next big adventure us fans are patiently waiting for. The last couple games have been somewhat of a flop in my opinion, the 13’s being my main example here. I enjoyed 14 quite a bit, I’m actually a level 60 Ninja right now. 🙂 I’d say Final Fantasy 7 or the HD remake of 10 are the best in the series so far. You all must have heard the news by now if you follow Square Enix, a brand new FF7 remake is coming to the Playstation 4 console. Hell yes. Praise the gods, am I right? Hopefully I will have finished beating all the Dark Aeons and the legendary Penance before these new titles hit the market. Penance, if you don’t already know, is the most difficult boss in the history of role playing games to date. I dare anyone to argue with me about this statement after they have actually put in the endless hours of grinding it takes to accomplish this goal.
So, what’s your favorite video game? Do you think the future of gaming will bring forth a game that will stick in your memory the same way your favorite titles from the past do now? Moods change from year to year but we always find ourselves reaching for that classic game, which will never fail to bring us into another world. Kinetic Lowdown would love your input ya’ll. Never give up on the adventure fellow gamer’s! Peace folks, 😉
