Fandom Friday: Games I Love to Play

IMG_0731It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these! I’m playing a lot more games these days, so I thought I’d hop back on the bandwagon for this week’s post.

1. Final Fantasy X: This is the first video game I fell in love with. As a teenager, I logged close to 300 hours on it thanks to multiple plays. So when the remaster/HD version came out last year, I hit pre-order the second it was available. I’m really enjoying all the extra international content that wasn’t initially released, though I’m a lot slower at leveling these days. I’d love to beat all the Dark Aeons and extra bosses eventually, though it’ll probably take me another year at this pace πŸ˜›

Half the entertainment value in FFXIV is running around and making my lala emote.

2. Final Fantasy XIV: My boyfriend introduced me to this game a little over a year ago as something we could do together. I resisted getting into MMORPGs for a long time, since I tend to have an obsessive personality and feared I’d turn into Felicia Day’s character from The Guild. It took me a while to come around on it, but I now enjoy playing a daily roulette and a few miscellaneous missions. Of course, it helps that my lalafell is incredibly adorable. Unlike FFX, it’s pretty easy to only play for 30 minutes to an hour at a time if you’re so inclined (and I totally am). Do any of you play? I’m on Goblin!

3. Persona 4: This is another one my boyfriend introduced me to. I love the combination of dating sim/dungeoun crawler. I play this game primarily on the Vita, which makes it pretty simple to play for small chunks at a time. I recently finished my initial playthrough, and I’d like to go through again to max out some of the social links I missed the first time, including Margaret’s!

4. Catherine: Another game from Atlus! I normally don’t play through a game more than once, but I’ve played through this one twice and want to knock out another run soon. I don’t know exactly why this one is so addictive. It helps that the game is pretty quick. I think my last run was about 10 hours. I also like the various endings and answering the questions as ridiculously as possible.

5. Drawful: Something a little different for this last one. It’s part of the Jackbox Games party pack and it’s a fantastic party game. The idea is that you pull up the game on your console and everyone uses their smartphones to play an electronic version of Pictionary. It’s hilarious the later you get into the night (and/or the more you drink).Β  The other games in the pack are also fun, but Drawful is my favorite!

  1. I see so many beautiful screenies show up in the blogosphere by people playing Final Fantasy! I get the feeling it’s a game I would really enjoy. It’s almost a shame that I’m already involved with so many other video games that I don’t have free time left.

    Anyway, just wanted to let you know I enjoyed this post. I’ll try to write one of my own as well. πŸ™‚

    1. It really is a fun game! But I completely understand being involved with lots of other games. I’m slowly working on 3 right now, and it feels like I’m never going to finish any of them πŸ˜›

  2. I am loving the HD remake of X. I played a lot of Final Fantasy games before that one, but it’s still one of my favorites. The ending actually made me cry. “The people and the friends that we have lost, or the dreams that have faded… never forget them.”

  3. Still to this day Final Fantasy X is one of my all time favourite games! The HD remake comes out here on the PS4 next month so I think I’ll be getting that.

    I’m also playing FFXIV! I absolutely love that it’s a game that you don’t have to play for a gazillion hours each session (though, if I had the time, I probably could!). I’m on Tonberry myself πŸ™‚

    1. Yay! All the FFX love. I was tempted to get the PS4 version as well (I have a PS3 and my BF has a PS4) for the artbook, but I think one copy (2 if you count the Vita) is enough.
