3 BENCHMARKS OF THE GAMING WORLD

Exam stress, work stress, relationship stress or just stress in general, or even without stress, someone who loves playing games doesn’t need a reason to play. All they need is a just a couple of minute which then extend into a few more minutes and a few more hours. And everyone has their favorites, but then there are also some titles no one can be critical about.

Took a little while and it was tough but we’ve got the first three right here. Read on to see if your favorite made it to the list.

GOD OF WAR

It will be hard to find a gamer or person who has the most tiny bit of interest in games, who hasn’t heard of this title. An action adventure video game series, God of war, swiped away the audience with its debut in the year 2005. A leading title for the PlayStation, the game has grown into seven games across various platforms.

  • God of War
  • God of War II
  • Chain of Olympus
  • God of War III
  • Ghost of Sparta
  • Ascension

That’s is order in which the titles were released but after playing this game over a period of time, gamers devise a personalized order in which they like playing the game.
The game is roughly based on a Greek mythology and the protagonist, Kratos, himself has a large fan following. A Spartan warrior who is duped into killing his wife and kid by his own previous master, the God of War Ares, the game revolves around how Kratos takes his revenge. Even after earning his revenge, Kratos is haunted by the nightmares of his past and again betrayed by Zeus, the king of the Olympian Gods. Then follows a series of endeavors to free himself from the influence of the gods and the Titans.

Each chapter within the series adds to the central theme of the game, vengeance.


ASSASSIN’S CREED

This stealth video game series won’t you move away from it until it is over. We’ve been trying to get over since the past few months; still don’t see any hope of the series ending soon. With eight titles under their name and a number of supporting materials, the game became Ubisoft’s best selling title. As of April 2014, the series had sold over 73 million copies and it is pretty evident of how well it has been received by the public and critics as well.

The game is an inspiration from the novel, Alamut by the Solvenian writer, Vladimir Bartol. Some of us here even think it is the spiritual successor to the Price of Persia series. The historical fiction action adventure game is available across the platforms of PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation Vita, iOS, HP webOS, Android, Nokia Symbian Windows Phone platforms, and the Wii U.


Far Cry

A game developed by Crytek and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, Far Cry has 730,000 units within four months of its release. The game is a first person shooter game but since the success of the original game, it has been reproduced into a series of sequels and spin-off games.

Abandoned on a secretive archipelago, a former US Army Special Forces operative, Jack Carver is on the look out for a female journalist he was escorting. She has been missing since their boat was ruined in an attack by the mercenaries. Through the game, he comes face to face with the negative side of genetic engineering and the genocide of local soldiers. The same soldiers have mutated into deformed creatures that have been created by a mad scientist names Krieger.

All through the game, the player goes through a number of terrains. From the simplistic to such complex that you might want to stop and pay attention to it for a minute, through the South Pacific archipelago, the landscape that is inclusive of the beaches, impenetrable rain forests, soaring canyons, dangerous, mines, swamps and even volcanic forests. There are more, with a traditional underground temple and an exquisitely modern scientific lab. The gameplay is made difficult with the use of the remains of Japanese World War II era bunkers and fortifications.

There are many benchmarks in the gaming world and we’ve got more coming… Keep watching this space. And while you’re at it, ell us which ones you love the most. We’ll tell them world about them.
