Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for your family, your pets, your life, or whatever you want. But it's also a break away from school or work and a great way to spend your free time (when you're not with family) playing some games.
And that leads me to the title question, what games did you end up playing during your T-Gives break? I played a bunch of games (I ended up getting Guilty Gear Xrd Sign for 15 bucks on Black Friday) but here are three games I spent the most time with over Thanksgiving weekend.
I absolutely love basketball. And I also love Spike Lee. So getting to play through the story he wrote in one day was an absolute blast for me. It was one of the more entertaining sports stories I've experienced in a long time and I enjoyed it from the moment I put the disk in and then took it out to play the next game. The best thing about this game is that the real meat of the single player experience opens up once you finish Spike's story: Livin' Da Dream. So you can be that I'll be returning to this one very soon.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
The Metal Gear Solid series has been one of my favorites ever since I played the first game on Playstation back when I was a little baby boy (I wasn't an actual baby but I was an actual boy). So, you could imagine my excitement when I finally got to spend some time the game and the series villain, Big Boss. The open-world of this game is something that still astounds me and I don't know how Kojima and Konami did it. I feel like I'm going to lose hours and hours to this game.
And speaking of losing hours...
I probably played Fallout 4 the most out of any of the games I've played last weekend. Getting some real time with the game without worrying about work or anything else really made me feel like a kid again. I swear I spent all of Saturday afternoon sitting in front of my television screen playing Fallout and trying to figure out how to make my settlement the best in the Commonwealth.
And that's the thing, I can't believe I sunk so many hours into this game without even touching the main story. I feel like I'm so behind but at the same time I feel like I'm not. I'm still searching every nook and cranny of the Commonwealth, trying to find resources to make the people back home a lot happier (also so I can build a better house).
Anyway, what games have you guys been playing? Do you ever wish that you just had one more free day to sit in front of the television or computer screen like I do? Is there anything you played that you think I should play?
