I just started playing Fallout 4 last night and it’s the prefect time of year for it. I’ve always played the Fallout games around the holidays, and there’s something about the game that is only comforting, despite the subject matter. The game was a steal at $20 on Black Friday.
I don’t play video games as much as I used to, but I’m hoping to spend a little time with this game over the next few winter months. I’ve decided to play as a stealthy, charismatic, and intelligent female character. I’m looking forward to seeing where the adventure takes me.
I figured that with my new iMac, I could give playing some PC games a shot again, since I have not really been interested in playing them for a long time. I decided to download Civilization V, which I bought a few years ago on Steam during one of their nutty sales, but never really played because it never ran well.
On this new Mac, it runs well, and looks great, but I really can’t bring myself to play it. I gave it a shot, but after very little time, I realized that it was not for me. I love video games, and I have a PS4 and a Wii U that I really enjoy, but I have a hard time sitting in front of my computer to play a game for an extended period of time. Maybe it’s the genre of game that I don’t connect with anymore. I don’t know.
I’m definitely going to give it another shot though. The Stanley Parable was on sale today for under $4, so I decided to buy it. I hear it’s great, and it’s downloading as I type this. I’m going to give it a shot and see if it keeps my interest longer than Civilization. I hope it does, because games look beautiful on this Mac.
