Must-have series for every gamer's library

Every gamer anticipates the next game in a series they enjoy, but there are those special games we hold very close to our heart. This list might not resonate with everyone, but every game has struck a chord with me, for various reasons.


Zelda is one of the first games I can remember taking a strong interest in and continuing to struggle through 8 bit graphics. Sure there was Mario, and Duck Hunt, and before that even Galaga and Joust, but 8bit Zelda will forever be my first true love. The latest in the series, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is truly breathtaking.


Nathan Drake gets into some seriously hairy situations. Those action scenes where you're in panic mode so you don't fall to your death are pretty intense. Every game has been better than the last, and even though you get used to the style pretty quickly, it gets better and better as you go through ruins, caves, jungles, and who knows where else. Since backwards compatibility seems to be a thing of the past, UNCHARTED: The Nathan Drake Collection is the perfect solution to make sure you can still play 1 through 3 on your Playstation 4.

Super Smash Bros.

With so many characters to play as, this is a party favorite because there's a little appeal for everyone. Not to mention you can get lucky sometimes, so even when you're new to the game, you can enjoy playing with your friends that eat sleep and drink Smash! The cool thing about Super Smash Bros. on the Nintendo Wii U is that you can get a GameCube controller adapter and use older GameCube controllers.

Grand Theft Auto

Even if you're a law abiding citizen, who doesn't love a little GTA every now and then? This one truly brings out everyone's bad side, even if you try to obey they traffic laws, and intentionally swerve so you don't mow someone down... eventually you end up running from the boys in blue. Grand Theft Auto V is the newest in the series, and does not disappoint... more of the same good, and more overall in-game antics to get into.

And more...

There are a ton of other great series out there... Mario, Fallout, Call of Duty, Battlefield, Dragon Age, The Witcher, Fable... So many! Which are your favorite???
