33. Reasons to Love Action, Adventure and the Uncharted Series

Action/Adventure video games are my favorite.

I first fell in love with the genre when I played Tomb Raider, a game about a young woman unraveling a mystery about an ancient island. The action combined with the puzzles, cool characters, and interesting plot made the gaming experience incredibly enjoyable.

My passion for action games has grown even more after playing Uncharted and Uncharted 2 (remastered for PlayStation 4). I’m currently playing Uncharted 3, and I can’t see my passion diminishing anytime soon.

I had reasons for buying a PS4, and those reasons are becoming clearer as I progress through the Nathan Drake Collection.

A friend of mine reminded me of something that rather shocked me:

The only PS4 games I’ve played have been remastered ones; I haven’t actually played any games specifically designed for the PS4.

Despite this, I’m still mesmerized by the graphics and gameplay of the Nathan Drake Collection. Although build for the PlayStation 3, the games transfer their content quite nicely.

Once the fourth and final Uncharted game is released (May 10, 2016), I will hopefully experience the PS4 in its full potential.

Check out the trailer for the new game.

 

What’s your favorite video game genre? Why do you like it? If you’re an Uncharted fan, what are your expectations for the new game?

27. Lego Star Wars, The Force Awakens, and High Anticipation

Lego Star Wars

I distinctly remember playing Lego Star Wars as a kid. I remember playing the GameCube and GAMEBOY versions. AND BEATING THEM BOTH. The concept of collaborating Legos with science fiction’s greatest story simply astounded me.

I am pleased to inform you that Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens is almost here!

I watched the movie on Christmas Eve, and I thought it was the best Star Wars yet. It will be interesting to see how the movie adapts into the Lego video game format.

There is something I believe will change, though. Unlike The Complete Saga, The Force Awakens might actually contain character voices. The original Lego games only had mumbles and grunts to simulate dialog. Recent Lego games like Lord of the Rings and Marvel Super Heroes contain character voices; I’m hoping they do the same with The Force Awakens.

A great part about the Lego games is the humor. Without funny cut scenes, the Lego games wouldn’t be as enjoyable. It provides comic relief and sustainable content for an enjoyable video game experience.

I’m definitely looking forward to buying this game.
