What’s up guys? Anyone who says, “Video games have no value”probably hasn’t picked up a controller since they returned ‘Doom’ to Blockbuster.
From exploring the galaxy, to creating oneyourself, to surviving the zombie apocalypse, games give you an outlet to explore the consequencesof multiple actions in a huge variety of settings.
So here are “7 of the MANLIEST VIDEO GAMESA MAN EVER GAMED, MAN”.
I’ll be giving out achievements for thingslike strength and honor and wisdom and manliness.
But you know they’ll have fun little names like trophies and achievements.
The EVER-PRESENT achievement goes to thathero that never takes a sick day, that champions against evil full-time, and rarely–if ever–attendsa social gathering…unless it’s to gather intel.
Let’s not ‘bat’ around the bush…it’sBATMAN.
Specifically from Arkham Knight.
Side note…I might actually have to acceptthe cowl one day and be Batman.
My name’s Adam.
Adam West? There’s something there.
TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK…is not a multiplayer award.
Ok, I see how that’s misleading, I get thatnow.
Let’s move on.
LOYALTY! I don’t know a ton about METAL GEAR SOLIDthe franchise but METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN is oozing testosterone.
Whether its stealthily infiltrating,blowing everything up, or taking down the bad guys, Snake can do it all and he does it withthe unyielding support of his buddies – straight from an action-packed military thriller.
Oh, and did I mention he’s voiced by JackBauer? Hey, it’s me, Snake.
I need to.
I need to get into the, thecompound.
Give me a helicopter and a dog, and a horse,and a sniper.
He shoulda been on a phone just then.
I don’t know.
The FAMILY GUY.
Because a man.
(like Godfather) “Becausea man who doesn’t spend time with his family can never be a real man.
” I can’t think of a better way to spend timewith your family than by adventuring together.
So this one goes to UNCHARTED 4.
Everyman explorer Nathan Drake shares his modern-day Indiana Jonsing with those closest to him.
Including: his love-interest-turned-wife Elena,his revenant brother, Sam, and his father figure and mentor, Sully.
(kinda like George Michael) And his fatherfigure Sully Who knows, maybe there’ll even be a littleDrake exploring some day.
The STEEL STONZ achievement goes to thatgame with the most chilling feats of bravery.
Turns out, overthrowing a dictator offersplenty of opportunities for just that, that’s why this one goes to Just Cause 3.
(Rico: Let’s do this.
) Rico Rodriguez is basically an Expendablewith an endless supply of grapples, cars, tanks, planes, boats, weapons, and cheesyone-liners.
(Rico: Can you hear me now?) (What are you some kind of action hero?) The cherry on top of this one-man army isthat it all takes place in maybe the most beautiful, expansive world map I’ve ever seen.
Sometimes taking out the bad guy or finding the treasure has to take a back seat to Just Surviving Somehow.
So the JSS award goes to the manliest survivalstory ever.
And it’s definitively Tomb Raider.
Before Lara Croft was raiding tombs she wastrying not to die when the whole world was trying to kill her.
Survival is a human instinct and not a distinctlymale one, but you can’t watch her take rebar to the side and not think, “I wish I was thattough.” Ouch.
This piece goes in (muffled).
With your friends on multiplayer.
FOR QUEEN and COUNTRY.
Defending the homeland.
A death wish.
Who knows why this guy does what he does,but nobody does it better.
That’s right, this achievement is accomplishedby none other than James Bond in his greatest game ever – GOLDENEYE 64.
If you see this and say, “Yeah, that’sa KF7 Soviet.
Yeah that’s a PP7.
” If you always wanted a watch laser.
If you understand the hardship of playingas Jaws against a crouching Oddjob, then you know the impact that this game had on a generation.
It didn’t invent, but nearly perfected thefirst person shooter.
And call me nostalgic, but wasn’t it greatwhen you could turn on a game and you were in the core gameplay in seconds instead ofsitting though 40 minutes of cutscenes? I mean, the cutscenes are good now, I knowthat.
But sometimes I just wanna be cut loose youknow? And it includes the most gymnastic army ofall time.
I mean look at this guy.
What’s he doing? And what are those boxes filled with…gasoline? Plutonium? Kerosine? Petroleum? (trying to sound British) They’re filled withpetrol.
Something about bread pudding) And finally the NOT MY FI…K FINE! achievement.
Sometimes you have to defend what’s right,even when it’s not your fight.
And sometimes you have to make the kind ofhard choices that will have lasting consequences for the people you’re fighting with.
(Amita: Let me understand) FAR CRY 4 is all about choosing how you walkthese beautifully unfamiliar paths.
It turns you loose pretty early in a colorfulworld full of quests, wilderness, and wildlife.
Set against the gray morality of conflictingleaders, you will make the decisions that will determine who will end up being the leaderof this free world.
(Amita: We’re at war.
) In most Far Cry games you play as a character dropped into the right place at the wrong time.
(nothing like Dr.
John) Well it musta beenthe right place.
Musta been the wrong time.
That’s a terrible Dr.
But Far Cry 4 is my favorite game, and here’swhy: I’ll go quickly.
The wide variety of vehicles and animals totraverse with.
2 The variety and sheer quantity of the weapons.
Number 3 the rewarding skill and craftingsystem.
And the huge, beautiful world of Kyrat.
I would live there in a heart beat.
I mean, sure their leaders are morally ambiguous,but I already live in America so… (Joke drum fill) Well guys, that was my list for the manliestgames.
Leave me a comment and tell me what I missed.
Maybe I’ll do a future episode about it.
As always, I’ll never bug you to subscribe.
See ya later
Next time we will talk about Mobile Strike Cheats.
