Best Video Game of All Time
As someone who owns more than 80 video games, I consider myself somewhat of an expert or master of all things games related. From all the games that I own, there is always the very special one that I keep coming back to play. My game version of Freaks and Geeks is Far Cry.
Far Cry is a first-person shooter game and it's about an ex Special Forces Operative, Jack Carver, who is the coolest character ever. He finds himself stranded on an island having to constantly save his own ass. Hours, starvations, dehydration and insomnia cannot begin to describe the beauty of this game.
I first discovered it when I was sixteen, of course back then they didn't make graphic cards good enough to match the intense detail of the game. Then I got a kick ass computer and I the first thing I did was install Far Cry.
Aside from shooting mercenaries and genetically enhanced monkeys, this game gets my respect because it gets straight to the point (shoot, kill, destroy). I have played so many games where the lead character has a female accomplice; for example Prince of Persia and Dark Messiah and as a female myself, I find it utterly frustrating to have to fight bad guys and protect my lady at the same time. But in Far Cry, the chick, Valerie, can handle herself, so thank you to all the people at Crytek and Ubisoft.
Much like other shooter games, in Far Cry when you've finished all the missions in the game you can go online and shoot your online mates. It never gets boring or too old, unless there's no one online. And if you've ever played the game online and have been shot in the butt repeatedly after you've died, then that was probably me. I would like to say that I'm not sorry because frankly it is hilarious.
I grant Far Cry the best game of all time. Five stars.
