My Top 5 Games of last gen I still need to play

This isn’t a list of the greatest video games of all time or the top 5 console games; it’s not even the best top 5 video games of the last gen. This list just includes my PERSONAL top 5 games, mostly from last gen, that I would like to play at some point, hopefully soon. Some of these games on this top 5 list I already own, others I have to find a way of getting my hands on.

#1 GTA V - I initially bought GTA V for my PS3 when it was first released. I started playing the story and thoroughly enjoyed it, especially playing as Trevor. All the GTA games consume an insane amount of game hours just based on the sheer size of the world and the number of things that you can do in it. This is one of the main reasons I have yet to complete GTA V. GTA V is supposed to be one of the best games of the Last gen. I have always loved playing all the Grand Theft Auto’s. I have played all of them since GTA 3, but never managed to finish any of them to 100% completion. What better way to start than with finishing GTA V. GTA V is supposed to be the best GTA game according to the publishers and it certainly looks that way to me. With a Metacritic score of 97 and very positive user reviews overall, GTA V just had to be number 1 on the Top 5 gaming list of games I need to play.

#2 Last of US – I somehow still do not own this game yet, either on the PS3 OR the remastered version for the PS4. The Last of US story is supposed to be the greatest story of all time in video games; at least that is what I have heard from people constantly telling me to play the game already. With tons of people I know already owning the game; I figured I would just borrow it from them instead of buying the game. But I think I might go and actually buy the game the next time it goes on sale as this might increase my chances of actually playing it. I really do want to play the game as it is supposed to be one of the best and I have heard nothing but good things about the game so far. Better yet the Last of Us game is a post-apocalyptic game with zombies and who wouldn’t want to play a game like that. The reason this game is on my top 5 games list is because I would like to see what the best of the last gen, as well as the best game on the PS3 had to offer. Last of US boasts that is has won over 200 Game of the Year awards. This game has a ridiculous score of 95 on metacritic as well as a 9.1 user score so this game must be exceptionally good, all the more reason for me to play it as soon as possible.

#3 Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag - This is another GREAT game that I initially bought for the PS3 and only logged a few hours on. This is a series I have had a love-hate relationship with. I absolutely LOVED the first Assassins Creed but never played the others. I’m sure the story for the rest were decent but the gameplay for the new ones just seemed a bit dull and lacking and somewhat repetitive. This was not the case with Black Flag which looked just awesome. It is essentially a game with Assassin Pirates and who doesn’t want to play that. The stealth mechanics as well as the parkour mechanics were retained form the original series along with the awesome addition of ship battles. The fact that you can salvage enemy ships and customize and build up your own ship is another great feature of this game that I was greatly looking forward to experiencing.

#4 Borderlands 2 – I have always wanted to play borderlands 2. The game looks like an insane amount of fun especially when playing 4 person co-op. I recently bought the Game of the Year Edition of Borderlands on Steam as it was on sale for around $8. Since the game and all its DLC’s were on sale I took the opportunity to buy it. I also managed to convince a few friends to get it as well so I could play the 4 person co-op mode with them. I will be playing this game soon and hopefully to 100% completion.  Borderlands 2 for PC got some amazing reviews, an 89 on metacritic I believe as well as mostly positive reviews. I do plan on playing this game on my PC as compared to the other games on my list which I will probably be playing on my PS3 or PS4.

#5 God of War – By this I mean ALL of the games in the God of War series. I know that this will probably take some time and I probably won’t be able to play through all the games at once. I also know that I am tremendously late to the party as the first god of ware game was released back in 2005 I believe. I have never played any of them but have heard tales of the mystical Kratos going on rampages and conquering insurmountable challenges from friends who have played the game. I feel like this belongs on my top 5 list of games I need to play before moving on to the new gen of gaming. It is one of the classics and another game I have heard nothing but good reviews about. I do own the God of War SAGA collection for the PS3 which includes God of War 1, God of War 2, God of War 3, God of War: Chains of Olympus and God of War Ghost of Sparta. The only game in the series I am missing is God of War Ascension which was released in 2013 which I would have to buy if I managed to play through the rest.

Somehow I managed to miss playing these truly amazing games some of which I think are on a list of the greatest games of all time somewhere. I am sure that others have included these games in their top 5 or top 10 games that they have played or want to play as well.

Although I am currently playing Fifa 16 and Destiny on the PS4, I would like to complete these games so I can finally move on exclusively to next gen gaming. I think I am going to start with GTA V one of these days and just work my way down the list while simultaneous playing Fifa of course.
