It has been a great few years for video games. The technology is constantly evolving. The Nintendo Switch is rising up in the ranks and may be one of the most popular consoles as the years come.
The standard for great video games is constantly being increased as well with every great game that comes out. Moreover, games make money. Gaming is in such a good place that business is booming, with billions of dollars in revenue coming in.
Let’s take a look at several of the most recent gaming masterpieces that you need to play right now.
God of War
The year 2018 saw the return of our favorite angry god slayer. A sequel to God of War was recently just released exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
The past God of War games were all about fast-paced action, violence, and awesome scenes. While most of those things can still be seen in the remake, there were also new things added into the game.
One of the most important new things added into the new God of War title was the emotional storytelling. The story continues from the previous game. After slaying the gods of Olympus, Kratos leaves for a far-off land, has a wife and a son.
The game starts off with a burial as Kratos’ wife dies. Most of the journey in the game sees you and your son taking your mother’s remains to their final resting place.
Kratos’ son is also a great addition to the game. He is not a burden that you need to escort around, but someone you can direct to fight with his bow and arrow.
If this were not enough to convince you, in the recent video game awards, God of War won the game of the year award.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Much like the previous game, most of it is cowboy simulations, bounties, and a lot of shooting with your guns.
However, there are new wrinkles to the game such as the ever-changing story as dictated by your righteous or nefarious actions. The attention to detail in this game is commendable to say the least.
What are you waiting for? If you haven’t played these games, could you even call yourself a gamer?
