Hey! Listen. You know that popular Christmas song called the 12 Days of Christmas? Athena over at AmbiGaming came up with a cool holiday themed community collaboration idea to gamify that kinda-as-annoying-as-Navi song (that we all love or hate). Basically, it’s a countdown list each day that ends up with 364 items, times however many bloggers do this, at the end of the event (something like that… my maths is bad). Be warned that my singing voice is terrible, but here we go, eh!
🎶 On the 4th day of Blogmas, the gamers said to me: Give us 9 games on your to-play list. 🎶
1) God of War (2018)
Kratos looks like the most badass dad ever! This game has received so much praise and looks so amazing. This is my highest priority to play in 2019 and it will be my first God of War game. Just gotta clear Detroit Become Human off my PS4’s gaming plate first! I’m trying really hard to stick to a “one game in-progress per console” rule…
2) Final Fantasy VI
Universally praised as one of the best Final Fantasy games ever, it’s about time I got around to playing it in 2019! It’s unlikely the game will top the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy in my gamer heart, but I love Final Fantasy and want to play all the mainline games one day. I still know almost nothing about VI’s story so I’m excited for an unspoiled gaming experience with Terra and her crew.
3) Spider-man (2018)
I thoroughly enjoyed the old PlayStation 2 era open world Spider-man (2002) game. I haven’t played as the webslinger since then. And wow, this game looks freaking fantastic! I plan to get around to it in 2019 as soon as I see it on sale somewhere. To the late great Stan Lee!
4) Metal Gear Solid
Not sure why, but I have a weird habit of playing second in series games first. After I finally achieve (or give up on) my crazy Metal Gear Solid 2 Platinum trophy hunt, I’ll be giving the first MGS game a go, then continuing on with the series from there.
5) Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
I want to get back into the Assassin’s Creed series soon. I fell out of love with it after Unity (didn’t hate it… just found it kinda meh overall). Origins and Odyssey look amazing (and I’ll get there), but I want to jump back into the series with the earliest title I haven’t played yet. Syndicate looks like it’ll be great!
6) Half-Life 2
It has been ages since I played a FPS. It’s not my favourite genre, to be honest, but it’s nice to switch up genres every once in a while. This game was highly recommended by esteemed Professional Moron so… eh, why not?
I know almost nothing about this game, other than a lot of gamers out there really love it. Can’t wait to see this game for myself!
8) Kingdom Hearts
Long ago, I got about halfway through the first Kingdom Hearts game and put it down for some reason. I never got back into it. With all the hype around Kingdom Hearts 3, I think it’s about time I gave the series another try! My gamer tastes have evolved since my cranky teenage days.
9) Chrono Trigger
Another classic JRPG masterpiece I haven’t played yet. I’m grateful I know very little about this hella popular retro game. Looking forward to probably getting headaches from time paradoxes!
Gosh… it was hard to pick a mere 9 games that I want to play. My backlog monster has me at its mercy, let me tell you.
Oh and to continue the Blogmas song:
Be sure to check out the host Goddess of Wisdom’s version of the song thus far (including links to other participants, eh).
