Happy Friday, everyone! I hope everyone has had a lovely Veterans Day, and that the rest of the weekend continues to be nice!
This year has certainly been… interesting, to say the least. There have been plenty of disasters, with some saying the latest is the presidential election, but there have been plenty of happy things too.
One thing that I love about video games grants us is the ability to escape reality for a little while. Want to save the world from a king who had been touched by the goddesses? Want to travel across the land to be the very best? Want to travel through pipes and ride dinosaurs to thwart a giant turtle? You can do all that and more in video games, and it’s glorious.
With that said, I definitely have favorite games to escape reality, with the notable ones from this year being the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Minecraft on the PC, Fire Emblem Fates, and plenty of others. Most of my favorite escape games tend to give me the power of the main character and help save countries, people, the world, something that I’m still trying to figure out how to do for our world.
While there are still plenty of games on my to-play list, I was curious as to everyone else’s favorite escape games. What lands do you travel to when reality becomes just a bit overwhelming?
