Melanie @ Mel to the Any shared her favourite video games, and I absolutely loved it! I have decided to share some of my favourites as well, even though Mel and I have a lot of the same faves! Most of these are games that I played growing up and continue to love.
It is rare that I make time for video games these days but when I do I will most likely play The Sims. I have been playing since the original game came out and it always brings me so much joy and nostalgia. My friends and I loved it! One of my favourite things to do these days is download custom content. It is like shopping but it is free! I love The Sims so much that I even did the Sims book tag.
Grand Theft Auto
My brother and I were probably a little too young to be playing Grand Theft Auto but we absolutely loved it! I would drive around obeying all the rules of the road and he would drive around running over ever person that he saw! We shared so many laughs playing together! I never played the story mode of the old games but I did for Grand Theft Auto 5 and it was amazing. It is one of my favourite games of all time!
Call of Duty
Call of Duty is a game that my brother and I would always play but I think I enjoyed them more than him. It is a game that I will sometimes turn on a play on my own. I always preferred Modern Warfare over Black Ops. My brother did love was Nazi Zombies! We played that ALL THE TIME!
I have beat all of the Halo games, some with my brother and some on my own. I think it was the first game that I ever played online and it was so damn fun!
Crash Bandicoot was everything when I was younger! My friends and I were constantly playing this game. It is actually kind of ridiculous how many hours we spent playing Crash Bash. Those mini games made us very competitive!
Animal Crossing is another game that I played with both my friends and my brother. It is funny how much I love this game because it there really is not a lot to do. I always found it to be very relaxing. I would plant flowers all over our town and then I would turn the game back on and my brother would have run over all of the flowers and dug holes everywhere. We still laugh about it to this day! I have the app which is fun but not the same!
Team Fortress 2
I randomly stumbled upon Team Fortress 2 one day and I have loved it ever since. Whenever I need to kill some time I will play it. I love it because it is online and you do not need to spend money to be good at it. Everyone is on an even playing field! The community made servers are definitely my favourites. I love class warfare!
There are so many more games that I could talk about, like Runescape and The Last of Us, but Team Fortress 2 is calling my names! Maybe I will make a part 2 in the future! I would love to know what your favourite video games are!

I love this list so much. I did a list after seeing Melanie’s post as well and it was so much fun to write. The Sims was on my top list as well because the Sims = <3 <3 <3 I recently bought the Sims 4 but am not loving it as much as the older games at all.
I was also the exact same as you when I played GTA as a, probably far too, young player :') I used to love doing the taxi missions and driving on the correct side of the road, stopping at all of the red light :')
also SO much yes to animal crossing & Crash Bandicoot
Yay I am so glad that you enjoyed this post! The Sims 4 definitely takes some getting used to. I find I get bored a lot quicker than I did with the old games1
Ah I loved the Taxi missions too! So fun!
I used to play The Sims and Animal Crossing on my PC and Nintendo. I haven’t played any of these for a long time but I know that when I come back to them, I’ll enjoy them again. 🙂 I think I like these strategy games when you have to look after something. 🙂
I also quite liked Wii’s Mario Kart and Rayman Raving Rabbids. 🙂
Not sure what happened but I haven’t played any of these in years….
I go through phases with video games! Some times I play them all the time and then I can go years without playing! Mario Kart is the best! I will probably talk about that in part two!
Do you have Animal Crossing Pocket Camp? That’s currently my obsession! I know it’s a mobile game, but it’s just as addicting as the originals.
Yes I do! For a mobile game I think it is pretty great! I haven’t played in awhile but I should start again!
I loved the Sims so much!
Crash Bandicoot!! Haha talk about nostalgia. Wonderful post
Thank you! I adore Crash Bandicoot!
One of my favorites is Super Mario Bros. on the original NES System, the cartridge came with Duck Hunt. I have Super Mario Bros. on my WII. Some more of my favorites are Yoshi’s Story, Paper Mario and Super Mario 64, I have those on my WII as well.
Ah Duck Hunt is such a classic! I have so many memories playing that with my cousins! I used to really love my WII! I could talk about so many of the games that I loved on the WII!
I love this so much! Thank you so much for linking me, you are the confirmed sweetest! And we like SO MANY of the same games. Like… I wanted to put Crash on my list SO BADLY, but I just couldn’t fit it, but… my heart. Also, just when I think I can’t possibly love you anymore? You go and make this post! Hahaha! Happy reading and gaming, love! 💖xx
Hahaha I had to link to your post! We have so much in common! You’re too nice! Thank you ❤
I love The Sims and would play it all the time if allowed. I miss the original sims though. It was easier to do things. GTA is cool too though I haven’t played it much. I too played it when I was too young but I did it kind of the same way you and your brother did lol. I knew it was not appropriate but all I wanted to do was just drive around. I used to watch YouTubers play it all the time. Have never played the others but they’re all classic games. Great list!
The original Sims is the best! So many memories! I love that I am I not the only one who played GTA that way! Thanks!
Omg crash bandicoot is my childhood! I adore that game so much! ❤️
This post is awesome! The Sims is life. I usually relate my life to the sims haha.
You played GTA like the me and my brother played a game called Mustang Racing. I used to want to try and drive properly hahaha! I didn’t know anyone else did things like that 😝
Thank you! Hahah Sims is so good for that! A lot of us in the comments all played driving games like that! I think it is hilarious!
You’re welcome! Right! Gotta love the Sims!
Really, that’s hilarious! 😀
Man I loved Crash Bandicoot when I was a kid. Now I just play Mario cart haha
Ah Mario Cart! So many memories!
