Happy New Year everyone! This was a fun list to do, even thought it was hard to number everything! These games were games I loved and have special memories with!

10. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

This is the only game on this list that I haven’t finished, but I think it should be on here! I just love that it encourages exploring, there are memorable side quests, and it’s also kinda like the Sims where you built a family and get a house. I definitely am glad I got this on the Switch and I really enjoy playing it!

9. Yakuza 0

This is the game that got me into the Yakuza series. I loved playing as Kiryu and Majima! I also loved the activities like disco and karaoke. The story is great because it’s very emotional, but also breaks things up with funny side quests. This was not a game I was sure I would like, but I am definitely glad I decided to play it!

8. Final Fantasy XV

This game was the first game I ever played on my PlayStation 4! I got the PlayStation 4 bundled with this game so it is decorated like Final Fantasy XV! This is also the series that got me into Final Fantasy. I loved the music and the story and loved the story of three friends going on a journey together!

7. Super Mario Odyssey

I really enjoyed this game! I loved exploring the worlds and collecting moons. The game was really relaxing and just made me smile. It was also the first game that I beat on the Nintendo Switch.

6. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

I really wanted to put this game on the list as I feel it is an important game to play. This game allows you to understand what it is like to have a mental illness like schizophrenia. I was impressed that the developers worked hard to make sure that their game accurately represented schizophrenia.

5. Nier Automata

This game was just amazing! I loved the story, the side quests, the multiple endings. I loved playing this game and the story definitely made me cry a few times! I am really glad I got to experience this game!

4. Zero Horizon Dawn

I loved Aloy! It was fun playing as her and exploring the world! I loved that I got to define her character based on my actions. I also loved battling the different robots.

3. Persona 5

I loved the characters, the music, the combat, and the story! This game was so much fun! I loved taking down palaces to change the world for the better and the twists in the story.

2. Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey

Playing as Kassandra and exploring ancient Greece was amazing! I also loved the branching story paths and how things would change depending on what you did during the story. I loved how Assassin’s Creed was changed for this entry!

1. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

This is my top game of the decade! I loved this game; I loved Geralt! I loved that there were different choices to make, the multiple side quests like contracts, and the main story was really fun. The expansions were fantastic too! This is the game that got me into The Witcher game series, book series, and now the Netflix show.

What were your top 10 games of the decade? Did any of yours make this list?

Things to Do in Ancient Greece: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

I have been playing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on the PlayStation 4 and I love it! I am playing as Kassandra and I just finished the game on Tuesday! This post discusses some fun aspects of what you can do in the game in a fun travel guide post!

Romantic Getaway

Ancient Greece is very romantic and you are sure to find someone here! Kassandra has found plenty of people she loves in Greece and she does love being a romantic! Come find love in Greece!

Sightseeing

Ancient Greece is beautiful so enjoy the beautiful landscape and skies as you climb mountains to unlock fast travel. Hope you aren’t afraid of heights!

Although be sure not to anger the Spartans since Kassandra and I did witness them attacking a chicken for pecking them!

Also watch out for floating goats! Kassandra and I were quite shocked when we witnessed goats floating and dropping from the sky because they did not understand how to swim in the water near a romantic beach!

Hunting

There are legendary animals in Ancient Greece you can hunt to satisfy a goddess and woo a priestess! These hunts are very difficult, but rewarding if you do enjoy a good hunt! The animals are massive and can deal a lot of damage if you are not careful!

There is also a hunt for an underground cult attempting to ruin Ancient Greece! Kassandra and I greatly enjoyed those and destroyed the cult!

The cult members are hidden and take time to uncover. Their battles can be intense unless the cultists anger the Spartans and the Spartans do all the work for you which made two cult bosses very easy!

Patriotism

You can also help the Spartans or Athenians win Ancient Greece! Take part in battles and show your strength as a warrior! The soldiers will greatly appreciate any help you can give!

Sailing

Does fighting or hunting not appeal to you? Don’t worry there’s plenty of sailing you can do! Gather a crew, upgrade your ship, and sail to explore all of Ancient Greece and it’s islands!

You can customize your ship however you would like! Kassandra and I have a Siren ship with the Daughters of Artemis crew so we have a ship full of bad ass women! We considers ourselves to be the sirens of Ancient Greece!

Battleship

If you enjoy this board game, you’ll definitely enjoy taking down evil ships in Ancient Greece! If someone comes after you or you meet pirates, you can sink their ships and board the sinking ships to get loot! Just make sure that you don’t get your ship sunk!

Olympics

Compete in the original Olympics! Fight your way to the top and make Sparta proud! Winning requires skills as Kassandra proved by winning the Olympics and beating men three times her size!

Arena

Olympics not good for you? Well, prove yourself in the arena! Fight your way through several stages and prove that you are the strongest warrior! Fight through several stages of warriors until you reach the boss of each stage! Fight through all the bosses and prove yourself to be the Hero of the Arena!

Reasons I Love Kassandra as a Character: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

I have slowly been playing through Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on the PlayStation 4. I am about 40 hours into the game and I really love Kassandra as a character! I wanted to list some of the reasons why I like her character!

Kassandra is Adventurous

The story begins with Kassandra wanting adventure and getting an opportunity to have adventure. Kassandra manage not only to get a ship, but she also becomes captain of that ship. Kassandra also gets to explore all of Greece on land and ship!

I love that she takes opportunities for adventure and decides to explore all of Greece after leaving the island she was raised on.

Kassandra is Bold

Kassandra’s dialogue choices suggest that she is a bold character. She is not afraid to say how she feels whether it be how she feels about a character or the war.

The actions that she takes also show how bold she is. She fights in the war. She also takes control as a strong leader of her own ship and can upgrade her ship or find new crew members.

Kassandra is Kind

Kassandra is kind to her family. She helps Markos even though he always gets her into trouble. She looks after Phiobe who wants to be like Kassandra. Kassandra is also kind to strangers offering to help them. She recently helped a man pretending to be the Minotaur in Pephka find his daughter.

Kassandra is Determined

She is determined to find her mother and end the Cult of Kosmos.  I admire how determined she is on her goal of helping her mother and brother.

Lessons Kassandra Teaches in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

  • Don’t be afraid to take risks if it’s something you are passionate about
  • Be confident in yourself
  • Create your own adventure
  • Show kindness to others
