No, this is not an article about a series of bad games from EA’s Pandemic studios. This is an article about passing the time while conveniently staying out of harm’s way…better known as Swine Flu.
Gaming Front recently compiled a list of fun fan-favorites throughout the history of gaming that would make for a fun pastime while waiting for the dire news of Swine Flu to pass you by. The article is composed of some great classics, including Metal Gear Solid, Hitman, Resident Evil and Fable.
Perhaps, I would have replaced Fable for Mass Effect, but I’m sure fans of the medieval-fantasy series would fuss up a storm over which game is better for biding one’s time during a pandemic. So I digress.
Anyway, it’s not a bad list of games for anyone looking for a cheap alternative for gaming away the weekend…that is, if you’re gaming away the time waiting for the Swine Flu to go away.
Most of these games are currently available (new or used) at places like SwitchGames, Amazon or eBay. Personally, I recommend SwitchGames, they have some good policies going on there.
Now in case you forgot who was hosting this list, feel free to check out Gaming Front for the detailed rundown on the games. For more gaming news, insight, info and updates, be sure to stay tuned in with Blend Games.
