Today I’ll be showing you my top five computer games maybe you could try them out too!
NO.5 a Story About my Uncle
This game is a parkor adventure game. In it you are a boy whose uncle went on a trip and didn’t come back. You go to his house and you find an adventure suit made to fit you, you put it on and walk up to his lab then you hop on the trash disposal launcher and the adventure begins. The suit has a grapple device that you use to get around but at first you can only use the super jump and leap functions.
The reason I love this game is because when I played it the mechanics were amazing, the graphics were a bit clunky but it was still really fun. When you win and find your uncle I always cry 😦
Astroneer is basically minecraft in space except it’s not made of blocks and if you’re not tethered you will run out of air. The world is not infinite it’s round so you can leave your hab in one direction and come back on the opposite end!
The thing I like about the game is that its really smooth and has some nice differences to most survival games, like the fact that you can travel to other planets in the solar system and to your moon. Or that you can find destroyed/crashed historical space craft or random research orbs that you can open to discover more things.
NO.3 the Turing Test
The Turing test is a puzzle game a bit like Portal or the Talos principle. The story is you are a girl called Ava Turing you’re on a space station manned by robots called t,o,m orbiting one of Jupiter’s moons. The human crew on the colony there has stopped communicating with the station so you were sent down to investigate, when you arrive you discover the layout of the colony has been completely changed from a lab to a giant group of test chambers. You go through them and eventually discover that the robots are evil and have trapped the crew, the ending is you having to choose whether to kill the crew and leave or escape with the crew and destroy the robot.
The things that I like about the Turing test is the story line that’s very different to all the other test chamber games and the way you complete the puzzles is very unique.
Abzu is one of the most beautiful games I’ve played since the Talos Principle. The basic goal of the game is to save the ocean from an evil scientific/magical force that is trying to destroy all the animals in the ocean.
The main person (you) is a diver, as you go through the world you discover lots of new plants and eventually save everything. At the very end your character discovers that they are a robot made by the people you were trying to stop.
The cool thing about it is at the beginning there is no tutorial segment it just tells you what to do as you go along. You don’t have to click into a special area to learn. I have no regrets about buying this game, it’s just really amazing. The graphics are fantastic and the fact that it’s X-box controller compatible makes it even better.
Minecraft is my obvious choice. It’s a sandbox free roam game were you literally mine craft and create! There are five game modes; survival, creative, spectator, adventure and hardcore. All of these do different things, the main modes though are survival and creative. Survival is the main game mode where you get hungry, you can die and you have to collect all your resources with tools. Creative mode is the exact opposite you can’t die, you get all your stuff from the creative inventory and you break blocks instantly. This is by far the most diverse game I’ve ever played and it probably will stay that way.
