Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth I and II are 4th on the list. It’s the game that got me into RTS games. Being a Lord of the Rings fan I really have to give this game props… And it was probably the game I played the most in middle school and early high school. You have a small area where you build things and those things can give you units, money, and things in that nature. I highly recommend it if you haven’t. Its not too complicated and is a good game to start if you’re new to RTS games.
Now for the games that I have spent way too much time playing more recently. I would probably be more successful (and dull) if it weren’t for these games as I have invested lots more time in playing them. I think the reason I like the next few games so much is there’s multiple characters you can invest time (and sometimes emotion) into. Each character has a minor back story and special things to contribute.
I have invested way too much time in this free to play game. League of Legends is constantly updating new features and adding new characters and is a genre that is newly getting popular Multi-player Battle Arena. Basically the best way I can describe that is like Hunger Games. Its one of the most (and maybe/probably is) the most online played computer game today. It is a free to play game and you can unlock characters as you play, but they make money by allowing you to buy characters quicker and making different visuals for characters that might look cooler. I have maybe spent 30 dollars on this game but have invest a lot of time in playing it. I recommend it and if you play, I am ToxicShardShock. The only thing I don’t like is the community of the game, lots of people have horrible attitudes and troll often.
Second is Pokemon. Yes you heard correctly, one of the things I talk about the most is not my first favorite game. Pokemon is part of my childhood and I haven’t missed a game since I got my GameBoy Advance…. That is in the main series of Pokemon. There are lots of different series. Pokemon is an adventure game, that takes strategy. With lots of Pokemon, and lots of moves it is always entertaining. I have bought every game the day it came out since I was about 13… Well they tend to come in two’s with not much difference in the counterpart games, then a third is released about a year later. I guess I don’t have EVERY Pokemon game, but I have on from each new release. Being part of my childhood, I can’t help but feel overly excited whenever new Pokemon are released. I always want to spoil the game (Love spoilers.) I will never get tired of the video games. My favorite so far is Emerald version. You can beat it quick, but still have those difficult times. For some reason, I also find it refreshing to play Emerald version.
My all time favorite game, the game that actually beats Pokemon is FIRE EMBLEM. It has everything I love. Amazing gameplay, lots of strategy, character development, amazing artwork, cool looking characters, fairly difficult settings, amazing story lines, and amazing music. This game, to me, is perfect. I don’t talk about it as much, I think, because maybe it didn’t have a show, or maybe because its not as big as Pokemon or League of Legends. But every time I play it, I just feel good. I have gotten lots of friends to play it and have been finding more people to play it as well. I was very excited when the most recent one was released, and even more excited when I learned lots of people I recently befriended also play it. This game is simple enough for anyone to play it, but also difficult enough for anyone to want to invest some time in. Its a pretty casual game (meaning you don’t have to invest too much time in it and pick it up again easily) and after you play the first few chapters, you should understand it quite well. Again, I think this game is perfect and I really wish there were books or a movie based on it, because the story line is so well done. I highly recommend it to people. Its a Nintendo series game and currently has 6 games release in the US. If you use emulators, there are two Game Boy Advance games. There is also one for GameCube and its sequel is for the Wii. There is also one for the Nintendo DS and 3DS. I don’t know I can pic a favorite as they are all so good and also different enough so its not too repetitive. I wish more people knew about this game because I feel its probably one of the best games AND genre’s out there… Its a total strategy game kind of similar to Chess and the board game Stratego.
Disclaimer (sort of not really). There are probably typo’s. I know the rules of grammar, but I bet you understood the jist of what I said… I am lazy and don’t want to edit this a billion times. Sorry grammar nazi’s.
