What is your desert island game and why?


I thought about this one for a long time, and I have to go with World of Warcraft. Yes. My desert island has good internet. It is my favorite game of all time, and I can ALWAYS find something to do. There is just something awesome about a never ending list of tasks to complete.

If you’re a stick in the mud and don’t think WoW is an acceptable answer, then my backup answer is Tetris. It’s a perfect puzzle game that I can play to relax and I don’t have to worry about the story getting stale.


Can we talk about Chrono Trigger? We should talk about Chrono Trigger. This game is about a story that asks “What it is to be a hero?” and explores the tragedies and victories  of that question with one of the best art styles and musical scores of all time. Best overall character roster, elegant game play, an early adopter of new game plus content. And it bears repeating that one of the best video game scores of all time was produced in 1996 with a 16 bit processor.


Skyrim, why, because.  Seriously though it is playable for hundreds and hundreds of hours in various ways.  The free form method of leveling and crafting allow for you to entertain yourself in any way that you want.


My desert island game would have to be Seikatsu. This game is beautiful to look at, as well as a peaceful game to play.  The tokens are heavy and would be less likely to blow away in the breeze. It is one I have played multiple times and it feels fresh each time. Not one that would be dull after a few plays.


Tetris any one of them but Tetris Effect if I was able to choose. They are the most solid game ever created and even while it’s simple and NOTHING has changed it finds new challenges every day.
