Start a journey with videogames
I know, this is a super crazy article, but I wanted to share with you how I started a journey with videogames; in these days, with Covid, quarantine and rules that we must respect, been stucked in the house has become really boring. When you have finished to clean your house and cooked your meals, what are you going to do? Well, I restarted one of my old hobbies, that is play a game with playstation. When I was younger and student, I always liked to play with videogames; but which are the best videogames to start an adventure journey? Playing videogames during the Covid quarantine, was my only way to leave the house…not physically but mentally, at least. Here there is my personal ranking.
Uncharted 2: among thieves
A sensacional adventure across Turkey and Tibet. You are Nathan Drake, the treasures hunter, and with your friends _Chloe, Sully and Elena_you will be involved in a great expedition looking for the city of Shangri-La. This game is amazing with all the realistic images form Tibet. I loved it.
Final Fantasy XV
Final Fantasy XV takes place on the fictional world of Eos; aside from Insomnia, the capital of Lucis, all the world is dominated by the empire of Niflheim, who seek control of the magical Crystal protected by the Lucian royal family. On the eve of peace negotiations, Niflheim attacks the capital and steals the Crystal. Prince Noctis, heir to the Lucian throne, goes on a quest with his friends to rescue the Crystal and defeat Niflheim. He later learns his full role as the “True King”, destined to use the Crystal’s powers to save Eos from eternal darkness. Sountracks, special effects, graphics and desing are superbs.
Uncharted 3: Drake’s deception
As Uncharted 2, in the third chapter of this amazing saga, players controls Nathan Drake that is looking for the ancient city of Ubar, in the middle of the Rub’ al-Khali desert. This time you are not only living the adventure, but you are also face up to Nathan’s family and his past. The journey will bring you in France, Syria, Yemen and also in the desert. A lot of enemies that wants to kill you and that try to find the city before you do.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
An adventure between ancient cities, mortal traps and enemies. The story follows Lara Croft as she ventures through the tropical regions of the Americas to the legendary city Paititi, battling the paramilitary organization Trinity and racing to stop a Mayan apocalypse she has unleashed.
The last of Us
What happens when the entire world is stricken by a pandemic and you are the only immune person in all the United States? You must start a journey to save yourself and to try to save the world looking for some doctors and survivors that can create a vaccine. Follow Joel and Ellie in an extreme adventure across the United States. Not the good period to play this game, but I really love it.
Uncharted 4: a Thief’s end
Set several years after Uncharted 3, players control once again Nathan Drake. Nathan meets his lost brother, Sam, and start a journey with him to find the lost city of Libertalia: an adventure between Panama, Italy, Scotland, Madagascar and the Indian Ocean looking for Henry Avery lost treasure. Nathan and Sam, want to finish their mother’s job and try to discover the treasure and the lost city of Libertalia. This one is absolutely one of my favorites. Best-Soundtrack-Ever.
Final Fantasy VII Remake
I’m waited almost ten years for the remake of this game. The game’s story follows Cloud Strife, a mercenary who joins an eco-terrorist organization to stop a world-controlling megacorporation (Shin-Ra) from using the planet’s life essence as an energy source. Shin-Ra Electric Power Company, has destroyed the world too much that is almost rare to find a flower in the city. You must try to save the world from the total destruction. A mix between fantasy and reality that you will love.
The last of Us: part II
Continue your exploration in a destroyed world hit by a pandemic. Set five years after The Last of Us, players control two characters in a post-apocalyptic United States: Ellie, the only immune person, who sets out for revenge, and Abby, a soldier who becomes involved in a conflict between a militia and a cult. In this game there is no good and no evil, it is a battle to survive. Does exists the true possibility to find a cure or a vaccine? Not the best game to play during Covid 19…but still one of the best game I’ve played.
Final Fantasy XII: zodiac age
The game takes place in the fictional land of Ivalice, where the empires of Archadia and Rozaria are waging an endless war. Dalmasca, a small kingdom, is caught between the warring nations. When Dalmasca is annexed by Archadia, its princess, Ashe, creates a resistance movement. During the struggle, she meets Vaan, a young adventurer who dreams of becoming a sky pirate in command of an airship. They are quickly joined by a band of allies; together, they rally against the tyranny of the Archadian Empire. This game has a combination of magic, spells and equipments that you can mix between your characters. Explore an amazing fantasy world with cities, mines, jungles and deserts.
