I haven't exactly had the happiest life or childhood. We were a poor family, and growing up, I had an abusive stepfather. Nowadays, things are better, and despite my depression, it's often manageable. But I never would've made it this far alone.
King's Quest, one of the best games on PC and consoles, is iconic. As a child I loved how you controlled the character, allowing you to explore, but also teaching you the right way to spell a word. It was a way to teach young kids back in those days how to type and fast, because if you didn't, then you died and you had to start all over unless you learned to save early; save often during the lesson, then you'll be fine. Roberta Williams started the KQ game and the market boomed. To learn of King Graham's history where he began life as a knight searching for the three lost treasures of Daventry, gave you an insight into his character, habits, quirks, personality, and other qualities—despite him being a knight in shining armor. I will explore my top five KQ games based on how I see them.
For over a decade, Assassin's Creed has been an escapist fantasy of silent violence and bloody intrigue. After a yearlong hiatus, they produced Origins, an extraordinary re-imagining of the formula and built a brilliant new phase for the series. Odyssey has continued this rebirth and succeeds in most areas. Unfortunately, Odyssey is also a regressive performance in a number of ways. These failings are detailed below.
When it first came to be in 2007, the game Assassin's Creed was a hit, but no one could have guessed how much of a hit it would become in time. It became the groundwork for a series that has now graced the world with more than a dozen games that take place throughout the world, and throughout time. Assassin's Creed 2 vastly improved upon not only the success of its first installment, but the game play as well—and it only got better as the story continued. But no matter how the series progresses and evolves, one game in particular has risen to the top of the Assassins world, and remains there to this day: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.
Since the first days of choose your own adventure gamebooks back in the late 1980s, people have loved being given a choice in their gaming experience. From simple turn left or right, pick something up or leave it or run or fight decisions, to more complex moral questions like buy or steal, free or enslave a person or even disarm a nuke or vaporise an entire town (that one will sound familiar to many a gamer) it seems being given choices in a game helps make the experience more enjoyable. But is it something more than that?

The first time I heard about The Walking Dead was eight years ago in the summer of 2012. I was a young soul struggling to do well in school and appease my parents as well as keep myself from going insane. One of the few things that eased my mind from falling into dark places was video games. And around the time my sister was graduating we told the rest of our family about "AMC's The Walking Dead" (Glen is still the best character), and to keep a long story short I saw a free demo for the first season of Telltale's The Walking Dead, and before I even thought about it, I was downloading it on my Xbox 360.
Video game soundtracks are getting better in quality and gamers like myself are noticing. The video game Undertale is no exception. While the game doesn't have good graphics like Last of Us or Detroit: Become Human, it makes up for it in story, gameplay, and all 101+ songs in its soundtrack. Here is my top 10 favorite songs in the sound track:
Picture this: It's March 2011. You're a young, bright-eyed gamer, and you see two episodes of a game based on one of your favourite movies of all time, Back to the Future. You convince your mum to finally give her debit card details to the scary black rectangle under the TV and, within minutes, you're playing your first ever Telltale game.
Detroit: Become Human, released on May 25, 2018, is a video game based off of a short film that was made back in 2012 called “Kara.”
In the early days of 2018, a little game called Life Is Strange popped up as a freebie on PlayStation Plus. Incapable of saying no to something free (except STDs), I gave it a go.
