I have a whole list of games that I need to play either because they were some of Ross’s favorites that I always meant to give a go and haven’t, or because I think they’re games that are continuations or in the spirit of games Ross would love. Some I want to replay for nostalgia purposes or because he always played as a renegade/dark side/less moral character while I took the goody-two-shoes path, and he would always lament that I didn’t give the opposite a try. So here’s a list of things I’ve got in mind down the line, and will be added to and edited periodically as games come out or get completed.
Ross’s Favorite Games: (that I haven’t played or completed)
- Fallout 3*
- Fallout: New Vegas*
- Elder Scrolls: Skyrim* – In Progress (on my own)
- Assassin’s Creed II
- Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood
- Bioshock 2
- The Witcher √ Played
- Elder Scrolls: Oblivion*
- Final Fantasy XII
- Roller Coaster Tycoon
Ross’s Favorite Games I Won’t Play: (either because I’m a wuss and it’s a horror game or because it’s outdated/too complicated)
- Dead Space 1 & 2
- Final Fantasy XI – it’s an outdated mmo, but he loved this game too much for me not to acknowledge it somewhere.
- Any/All Call of Duty and similar – that was what he did with his buddies. Genre doesn’t interest me.
Games that Ross Would Probably Like:
- Tomb Raider (new) √ Played
- Dead Space 3 – but I’m not playing it unless I’m roped into someone else’s co-op game.
- The Walking Dead √ Played, waiting for sequel cause omfg
- World of Warcraft patches, expansions, etc…* √ Currently playing
- Dragon Age III/Inquisition
- Bioshock Infinite
- Gears of War series (? Don’t know if he’s played them, actually)
- Baldur’s Gate, enhanced edition
- Other old school point & clicks: Grim Fandango, Sam & Max, etc
Games to Replay in Ross’s Honor:
- Dragon Age: Origins – Bastard Playthrough
- Dragon Age II – Bastard Playthrough
- Knights of the Old Republic – Dark side playthrough
- KotOR II – modded version
- Freespace/Freespace II
- Monkey Island series
- Final Fantasy 7
- Final Fantasy 8
- Tie Fighter/X-Wing
- Wing Commander 2
* – note about huge open-world rpgs – these likely won’t be played on stream as you could really just take forever with them.
