It is hard to imagine a life without games. It has been a connection point for me with family, friends, and people for as long as I can remember. From 8 bit NES to tabletop and PC. Games connect... I owe a lot to games.
To design games you have to be playing them. I am currently playing, loving, connecting over, or just simply love the following experiences...
With a 13 year old son that is car crazy we find GTS a huge connection point. It gives me the chance to connect with my kiddo over motorsport which is something I have loved my entire life.
From the solo WZ to my trio squad I keep coming back to Warzone as my top battle royale at the moment, even with all the issues in the game. Although probably not the best player the BR format provides a thrill and the dopamine hit is real when clutching a win. With over 30 wins and a year plus on the game I still get a rush every time I find myself in that last circle.
My childhood wrapped up in an awesome, east, and vast digital package. Takes me back to to 7th grade and trips to our local game store. The strategy, luck, and skill involved in a game of magic is just fun. I still have to look up cards and figure out how and why they work. Honestly... that is part of the fun.
My second choice for battle royale easily and an awesome connection point I have with my 10 year old. Watching and playing next to him is fascinating. His game sense is way above average and I have lost track of the amount of times he has carried me to a win. The movement on this game is absolutely fantastic.
There are always a few games that I am looking forward to playing. Some are out and I am waiting for that Steam or PSN sale and some are in the future.
Probably sounds a bit weird based on my current catalog above but my wife and I are massively looking forward to the new open world game set in the Harry Potter universe. My wife is a huge fan of books and knows more about Harry Potter than anyone I know. We look forward to sharing the experience together as we haven't had a game that has promise like this one since we played the multiplayer experience of Goblet of Fire on PS2.
After spending some substantial with Vigor on the PS4 my eyes have been re-opened to survival type shooters. Although Vigor has been super enjoyable I think I would prefer a more robust experience with what I am hoping is a slightly better gun play and more risk and reward.
Magic crossed with Diablo style looting... yes please. Looking forward to playing this experience both solo and multiplayer.
