GAME OVERLOAD!!!!!

 

So after I got back from my second deployment to Iraq in 2010, I really got heavy into gaming.  I had gamed a lot before that but it was sporadic and I was jumping from one console to another.  When I got stationed at Ft. Drum, NY in late 2010 I finally settled on Xbox 360 which is what a lot of my buddies were playing.  At that time, I picked up Call of Duty Black Ops and never looked back.  I would spend hours playing Call of Duty either pub stomping or competing in Esports all the way up until the end of 2014.  After spending a few months on Call of Duty Advanced Warfare I decided I was fed up with Call of Duty and consoles in general so I made the best move ever and went back to PC gaming, and I haven’t looked back since.

Now the one issue I have with PC is that there are just too many great games to play, and many of them you can pick up for free or for a very low price on Steam.  So now my issue is that I have so many games that I want to play, and not enough time to do it all.  So what I am going to do is tell you a little (very little) about all the games I play, and why I like them.  No the list is not ranked by favorites it is mainly just which game I think about first, as I really don’t have a favorite game right now.

  1. Armored Warfare– Armored warfare isn’t even in Beta testing yet, but I have been playing the early access for it for a couple weeks now.  If you have played any of the other tank warfare games such as World of Tanks or War Thunder, it is very similar only your using more modern vehicles allowing you to use heavy hitters such as the Abrams MBT, Bradley AFV, Challenger MBT, and M109 mobile artillery.  I have been enjoying my time in this game a lot with the main issues right now being the matchmaking (low player count), and that the AFV’s seem to be highly overpowered just zipping across the battlefield destroying MBT’s with relative ease.  Still I think anyone interested in tank warfare should definitely give this title a try.
  2. War Thunder– For most of the same reasons that I like Armored Warfare I like War Thunder.  War Thunder is a WW II tank warfare simulator that adds in plane warfare.  You can choose the between different game types letting you determine how realistic the gameplay is, and what kind of vehicles are used.
  3. Diablo III– Who doesn’t love a good dungeon crawl?  I have played a lot of Diablo growing up and Diablo III is just the newer version with tons of stuff to do, with more being constantly added.  I started playing again for season 4 after taking a pretty extensive break.  If you just want to run around a dungeon killing and breaking things than Diablo III might be just the game for you.
  4. Marvel Heroes 2015– I picked this up about a month ago and within a very short time I realized I had logged over 100 hours on it.  This game plays a lot like Diablo, but instead of picking from 6 classes you get to pick from a large list of Marvel super heroes to be your avatar.  If your into comics and super heroes than this is a game you should try.  It is free to play on Steam so go check it out.
  5. Heroes of the Storm– This is a new MOBA that blizzard put out, and it is a lot of fun.  IN this game you get to play as Heroes from all the Blizzard universes so WOW, Diablo, and Starcraft.  This game is a lot faster paced than League of Legends and revolves around team objectives.  So if you like MOBA games than maybe give this one a shot.
  6. Guild Wars 2– Again I took a very long break from this game, but my buddy is bringing me back to it and just in time.  The first expansion launches at the end of OCT, so now is the perfect time to start relearning some of the mechanics and learning the new ones.  This is a pretty large MMO, with many different aspects that can eat up your time.  You have PVE, PVP, and World vs. World so like I said now would be the time to start playing if you want to have a maxed character by the time the expansion launches.
  7. CS:GO– If you have been around PC gaming for even a little bit of time I am sure CS:GO doesn’t need much of an explanation.  This is a very competitive FPS with a player base that is constantly growing.  Coming from a Call of Duty background I am still trying to get used to the very steep learning curve on this game but I am most definitely a NOOB.  Regardless of that CS:GO is a very addicting game that requires a lot of skill and teamwork.

Well that is my main list of games.  There are many more games that I dabble in, but these are the ones I play the most.  If there are any games you think I should try be sure to let me know, and if anyone ever wants to play something just leave me a message with your Gamertags and I will be sure to add you so we can play some games.

As always comments, follows, and likes are very appreciated, and I look forward to hearing from you.
