Just like how they say “never judge a book by its cover”, the same could be said for Kingdom Hearts. Seeing Donald Duck and Goofy on the cover would make you feel like it’s a children’s game but it is actually much more complex than that. Kingdom Hearts has one of the most captivating storylines ever. The game revolves around the complex story of our protagonist, Sora who lives on an island with his best friends Kairi and Riku. However, their island gets engulfed in darkness and the three are split. Thus begins Sora’s story of searching for his friends. The game emphasizes the importance and the power of friendship and the game really has you hooked as you play through each part. You can purchase the Kingdom Hearts All-in-One collection, which features all the titles in one disc. Since the game is of Japanese origins just like Final Fantasy and Persona, this game is considered a Japanese Role-Playing Game, or JRPG.
Need for Speed
If you are someone who is an avid car lover, you should definitely consider buying Need for Speed. Need for Speed competes with the Horizon series on Microsoft and still, it remains to be one of the best game series of all time. Need for Speed has always put a lot of effort into their games and they have amazing car physics and mechanics which makes all the games a pleasure to play. All of the installments in the series have a story, which makes the game even better to play. Currently, Need for Speed Heat is the latest which features a Miami-like vibe, and the car choices in the game are absolutely brilliant. However, if you are someone who loves the Toyota Supra, you should consider buying 2015’s Need for Speed which was the last game to feature the Toyota Supra after which Toyota had their cars removed from car games. Need for Speed (2015) also has amazing graphics and it was a breakthrough for car games as a whole.
The Last of Us
Definitely one of the best games of all time. The game shows a world that is post-apocalyptic and the United States is plagued by the Cordyceps fungus, which causes people to lose their minds and resort to cannibalism. In the game, we play as Joel Miller who works as a smuggler and has to smuggle a girl named Ellie across country because she is somehow immune to the disease and they need to use her to devise a cure for the disease. However, Joel begins feeling very fatherly towards Ellie and they develop a bond like no other.
