This is Part 2 of Games for a rainy day. All opinions are strictly mine and these are games that I personally have enjoyed.

5. Dragon Age: Origins


Dragon Age: Origins stood out to me when I started playing it, because you could play as an Elf, human, Dwarf, etc. Whatever race you were kind of influenced how the game would be for you, you would experience a different background story and your race could also hinder you in the outcome of the game.

4. Fallout: New Vegas


Fallout: New Vegas was played pretty much up until Fallout 4 came out, I didn’t care for Fallout 3 very much. New Vegas was huge and had so much to offer, had that perfect balance of humor and perverseness. Plus, it didn’t seem like there were too many creatures in the wasteland that wanted to kill me…unlike Fallout 3.

3. Fallout 4


Fallout 4 is definitely one of the newer games on my list. Fallout 4 is pretty much everything I ever wanted in a Fallout game. Full dialogue, awesome (repetitive) music, you can build things! And there is so much to do! The list of romantic partners and companions isn’t too shabby either. Fallout 4 can be played over and over, especially since DLC has started to be released.

2. Skyrim


The Elder Scrolls are some of the most epic games I have ever played, and of course Skyrim is no different. Skyrim has been released for quite awhile now and it is still relevant. Skyrim is one of those games where there is always something to do. You can play the story or you can just run around like a maniac slaughtering everything in your path (except children). The graphics were gorgeous for it’s time and the music was very memorable. I was still playing Skyrim until very recently.

1.Mass Effect 1,2, & 3.

Mass Effect is by far one of my favorite series, and what’s not to love? Characters are full dialogue, and players can play as a renegade or a paragon. Not to mention you can slap people in the face and be super sarcastic. The music was amazing and I felt like the graphics were pretty awesome for it’s time. The game had characters that you get emotionally attached to, unlike other games, there is depth.  I have played these games countless times and if you have variations in your decisions, no two playthroughs are the same.
Do you agree at all with my list? What is your favorite game to go and replay?
