5 Video Games You Can’t Stop Thinking About Even If You Are Not Playing Them


Video games are meant to stay with us for a short period of time and that’s totally fine as it prevents us to get bored out of a particular game but sometimes we a love a game so much that it almost becomes impossible to not think about it while you are not even playing it. Whether you are eating lunch or playing baseball or going to sleep you just think about it no matter what happens. Today we are counting down video games that you cannot stop thinking about even if you are not playing. These are my personal opinions and I would love to know you guys opinions in the comments below.

THE LAST OF US

last of us

A masterpiece, that breaks the self imposed barriers of gaming narrative and ensnares the player with intelligent gameplay and brilliant A.I. Anyone wanting to tackle the same themes will have to be compared to Naughty Dog’s work in the future, and it won’t be pretty. – SpazioGames

Naughty Dog has proven itself again as one of the most accomplished development teams in the world. With The Last of Us they have given us a consistent and interesting world that is supported by practically all of its game mechanics. From the rich complex combat system to the sublime sound design, this game immerses the player in one of the most visceral plots in this generation. Maybe the AI could have been better, but, overall, this game proves how far the craftsmanship of making video games has come. – LevelUp

The Last of Us merges very good gameplay with a peerless story and unequaled production values. While it just misses transcendent status you won’t find very many games that are more worth the investment of your time. – TotalPlayStation

THE WITCHER 3

Its shockingly cohesive world is as beautiful as it is demanding, and it’s packed full of mature content that throws you from one emotional response to the next. Its storytelling is superb, its combat is grippingly refined, and its often unforgiving nature only lends itself to a brilliantly rewarding experience. – Push Square

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a thoughtful, diverse, and frequently awe-inspiring adventure. Its stories are deep and satisfying, unafraid to touch on themes of personal character, presenting players with choices and consequences that aren’t about turning into a hero or a villain. In the end, it’s quite simply one of the best RPGs ever made. – GameTrailers

The amount of content we find in The Witcher 3 is outstanding, as is its quality. It is true that there are some aspects with some room for improvement, but it delivers such a rich and unique universe that you will soon forget about them. – Vandal

MAFIA II

This might not be the best game of the year, but it is certainly the best and most immersive interactive cinematic experience this reviewer has had in 25 years of gaming. – Game Chronicles

Mafia II is a great game, crafted with incredible care by its developers. If you’re looking for a game with a strong story and a great shooter component, don’t think twice about buying it. Just don’t expect a myriad of side missions typical of other free roaming activities: this is a very story-driven and linear experience – MondoXbox

A deeply flawed game, where the story is the highlight – and far more engaging than most. I certainly enjoyed my 11-12 hours with Mafia II, and those looking for an authentic-feeling mob tale should definitely check it out. This one is more than the sum of its parts. – IGN AU

GTA SAN ANDREAS

Grand-Theft-Auto-San-Andreas-PC-Game-21

With its strong story, well-written dialogue, terrific voice cast, impressive graphics, great in-game sound, and extremely entertaining and varied gameplay, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is a stupendous thrill ride that shouldn’t be missed. – GameSpot

This is arguably the most important videogame this year – yes, even more important than “Halo 2” – not only because it’s a superbly crafted videogame, but because it’s also a bona fide sociological artifact, one that manages to effectively evoke a specific time and place in American history—in this case, a hot and hazy California during the nascent days of hip-hop culture. – GameCritics

San Andreas’s chief advantage over “Vice City” is size. And for many players, that’s good enough. But another group of fans will come to quietly understand that, at least for the time being, “Vice City” remains the high point of the GTA series. – GamePro

METAL GEAR SOLID 4

As the supposed last entry in the Metal Gear-franchise, this is one major release. Most of the flaws found in previous entries have been removed and the variety in gameplay and weapons is simply immense. The story is told in great part by cinematic video sequences and ingame narrative sequences, and while these are fantastic in many ways they can also become a bit tedious. These flaws are minor though, Metal Gear Solid 4 is a fantastic title in every way and a worthy finale to the franchise. – Level7.nu

Coupled with a download via the Playstation Store that’ll explain the series to you so far, this game is playable even if you haven’t been following the series for years – GamingTrend

The team at Kojima Productions has at the very least set a new high-water mark for cinematic presentation that I wager any other videogame will be lucky to reach, let alone exceed, for the next few years. – Wired
