This blog is for a university class. Throughout the semester I will discuss topics revolving around my three favorite games The Sims, GTA, and Star Wars.
Other games that I enjoy are Bethesda games, Diablo, Twisted Metal, Crash Bandicoot, and Guitar Hero. I’ve played a few RTS’s, and my most favorite one is Total Annihilation: Kingdoms. I also enjoy playing MMO’s like Elder Scrolls Online, Tera, GTA Online, SWTOR, Path of Exile, Diablo 2&3, and WOW.
Favorite gaming platform: SNES, Dreamcast, 3DS, Playstation, Xbox, and Computer.
I’m also a huge fan of cartoons. My favorites are from the late 90s early 2000s.
My experience with the games I hope to talk about are as follows:
GTA, I started playing when I was 13 when I was visiting a friend. We played GTA 3 and I got hooked. I persuaded my father to buy me the M rated game even though the News stated it was a “cop killer”. My mom was not happy with me playing but she pointed out that it’s just a game. I played all of the games then on except the Gameboy Advanced version. My favorite character from the games is Tommy Vercetti from GTA Vice City. The one I played the most was GTA 3. And I would probably have around 8000 or more hours accumulated from all of them.
The Sims, just like GTA I was introduce by a friend. I played Sims 1 and had all of the expansions except Hot Date, and I played that game religiously. I got Sims 2, 3 and 4 the years later but I did not spend all my money on every DLC/ expansion pack. I mainly got the Seasons, Pets, and whatever genre themed furniture pack like 70s/80s and so forth.
Star Wars, on the other hand, is just a geek thing. I love the movies so I tried to get into the games too. I loved the Battlefront games and played the crap out of those. But my favorite star wars games are the RPG’s. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2 as well as Star Wars: The Old Republic (MMO).
