Majority of people nowadays have surely touched a video game at least once in their life. Everybody has tried playing a game as a child. If maybe not at home, than sure at THAT friend’s house. Where they always had the best and newest computer/console/device and of course all the best games to play.
As natural players we at Team Red Panda have decided to compile a list of all our favorite game titles.
Since some of us had a pretty extensive list of played games (I’m looking at you Blaž) we had to limit ourselves to a maximum of five favorite games per each member. But since we are different people, we are also very different players. Some of us like it when the game is very complex and you have to devote a lot of your time to it, if you want to fully discover and enjoy all of its hidden gems. Others value the most how appealing the game looks and sounds. If the characters, levels and UI in general is well designed. There are even those, that mostly seek fast and exciting battles with close friends or distant strangers as long they are not artificial bots.
You’ll have to figure out for yourself which of the descriptions at the end of the previous paragraph belongs to who =P.
Let’s start with our CEO. Gorazd’s list of top 5 favorite games:
– Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
– Virtual Skipper 5
– Deluxe Ski Jump 3
– Rocket League
– Gears of War
Blaž, our lead developer, who surely has the most play-time in the whole team ;). He chose this games to be on his list:
– Mass Effect
– StarCraft: Brood War
– Counter Strike
– League of Legends
– Dark Souls
If you thought that girls don’t play video games, Kaja can prove you very wrong. She is our lead artist and very much enjoys making and also playing different kinds of games.
– Monument Valley
– Ori and the Blind Forest
Did you know that even Unity Developers have time to play video games in their spare time (since Unity is pretty complex thing to work in)? =P These are Miha’s favorite titles:
– Doom 1 & 2
– Transport Tycoon
– Heroes of Might & Magic 3
– Gothic 1 & 2
– Call of Duty: United Offensive
And also we should not discriminate sound guys (sorry Matteo for the first expulsion). Here is Matteo’s list of most influential titles:
– Monkey Island
– Rhythm Paradise
– Metal Gear Solid
– Final Fantasy VII
– Half-life 2
And for the end of the lists my two cents:
– Stronghold Crusaider
– Rollercoster Tycoon 2
– Need for Speed 2
– Call of Duty 2
– Achtung die Curwe
But before we finish, since almost all our games tend to be of older date, we would like to point out that there are also some very good games which are being produced in present times and deserve to be mentioned here.
There are two studios – Studio Techtrics’s and Emberheart Games (we need to thank both since these guys have helped us with numerous tips and tricks). The former have presented themselves with OreMiner and are also working on a game called Floatlands which should be coming out soon. And the latter are busy working on a game called Courier of the Crypts.
Then there is also a special kind of farming game Tinker Island by the Tricky Tribe (whom we also need to thank for lots of help with our business development).
And last but not least, if you’re looking for a western themed game where you’ll have to help a mosquito bounty hunter get his revenge, you’ll be excited to try the Blood Will be Spilled, by the Double Quote Studio.
