What is Top 5 Wednesday?
Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Sam of Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. Here is the link for the Goodreads group where you can find the list of topics and such.
This weeks topic is: Favourite Science Fiction & Fantasy in Other Media
1. Assassin’s Creed
I've always loved gaming, not that I'm any good at it mind. Assassin's Creed has always been one of my favourite franchises and one of the games I'm not horrendous at! In every game you are a bloke strapped into a chair, reliving the memories of his ancestors in an attempt to change history and recover certain items. It has a sci-fi twist but is usually very fantasy heavy in the historical settings. The newest incarnation of the game being Origins, which is set in Egypt. I'm loving it so far but my favourite is still Syndicate, which is set in Victorian London.
2. Far Cry
I haven't played this much but I loved it when I did. In this particular game of Far Cry you are a caveman completing a story. This game is incredibly plot driven which is what I tend to enjoy most, but it is one you can take your time with and do all the side missions. By far, though, my favourite aspect is how you can tame wild animals to become your sidekicks and assist you with missions. THERE'S EVEN A HONEY BADGER.
3. The Legend of Zelda
Nintendo was the first platform I really got into those many moons ago and with it came a life long love of The Legend of Zelda. In this game you play as Link, a warrior hellbent on rescuing Princess Zelda. It's such a fantastic series and is very much puzzle driven. Every 'boss' first takes you through a series of puzzles you need to get right in order to advance to different floors. There's so many lands and characters within this franchise. It's wonderful.
Here there be dragons.... Skyrim. The game where if you kick a chicken you face the wrath of relentless soldiers. I loved the original game but changed my console and I think I ended up getting rid of the original game...now I have the Tamriel Unlimited version which is okaaaaaay. Kinda glitchy. But let's focus on the original. This game allows you to really customise how you play, think sims level character creation and then which kinda path you take. Regardless, you have to fight dragons. It's incredible.
