Games Grab Bag: Top Picks From the FemHype Crew
On a fairly regular basis, we receive several emails and messages asking us for our video game recommendations. From games with the most replayability to titles that include positive representation, we had our hands full trying to put together a comprehensive list. But when we started to draft it, we realized we’d need an outside opinion for this to really serve as a helpful resource for everyone. And who better to recommend the best games out there than the FemHype crew?
With that in mind, we dropped a surprise poll on our Tumblr community with the expectation that we’d probably receive a few polite responses, and that would be it. Shit, were we wrong. Not only did all of you offer up an impressive variety of games, but you sparked quite the interesting conversation about what, precisely, makes a game great. Every response was super helpful, and I’ve gathered them all here (with links!) so that we can hopefully continue this very important discussion about something we all hold so dear.
If you want to be featured in our next community post or simply feel like keeping updated on the conversation as it unfolds, we’ve got you covered on both fronts! Follow us on Tumblr. ✌ Now get that wallet ready for the weekend, because your fellow FemHype crew have some incredible recommendations for you. These are the games you weighed in on!
I’m not fond of dating sims but I think their interaction-narrative mechanic has potential outside of dating that I’d really like to see in other genres (and I don’t mean dating options in other games like you do in DA).
My favourite games are: Journey to the Moon (Voyage: Inspired by Jules Verne in the U.S.), Monument Valley, and Detective Grimoire.
geekyhobbies: Deus Ex: Human Revolution not only has amazingly smooth stealth mechanics, but teaches you a lot about corrupt capitalism turning into oligarchy, and if too much technology is good or bad. Plus Jensen is a babe.
