What's your favorite sci-fi game?
Read Play Blog is something I look forward to writing every month, but I have to say this months topic isn't in my wheel well. I don't really play sci-fi games. The closest I've played through was Saints Row IV (because aliens and space and things), which I've already written about over and over again, so I'll do you a favor and skip that this time around. The other ones I've tried I wasn't fond of. I don't like Halo (or any of first person shooter for that matter), and I don't like flying through space. Obviously that isn't all sci-fi games, but embarrassingly I just haven't had much exposure. With that, instead of recommending you an awesome sci-fi game, I will throw this question back at you, and beg someone to help me find a sci-fi game I'll love. There HAS to be something out there for me! Reading everyone else's Read Play Blog posts will hopefully give me some ideas, too!

My Recommendation: Fable III
It's been awhile since I played this game, but for some reason its been on my mind lately. Fable III is an action/role-playing/open world game, with a lot of subtle underlying humor throughout. The story focuses on your character's struggle to overthrow the King of Albion (who also happens to be your brother) by forming alliances and building support for a revolution. Then (SPOILER) after a successful revolt, you become the monarch and must attempt to defend Albion from a great evil that was foretold earlier in the game.

What I like about this game is that there's so many ways the story can go. Do you want your character to be an evil badass, feared by all? Or maybe a more humble leader that your kingdom admires and looks up to? Little decisions you make earlier in the game often end up affecting you later, and not always in good ways. Think before you act! Also, if anyone else understands this games weird obsession with chickens, I'm really curious.
What I'm currently playing: Worms Clan Wars
So that's it for this month. December's topic is something I'm sure will be easy for all of us; we'll be sharing what's on our gaming wishlists, and some recommendations on games to get your friends!
