I love science fiction, and I love video games. So it’s quite fortuitous for me that the sci-fi genre has been a staple of video games practically since they were invented. (Fun fact: Pong is actually supposed to be two alien space ships battling each other.) (Another fun fact: That’s not true at all.)
So I decided to compile a list of my top five favorite sci-fi worlds/universes from (current generation) video games in no real order. “Why just current gen?” you ask? Because it’s getting late and I don’t have the patience to do the amount of thinking it would require to think about older games. Also, this list is limited to games I’ve played. And I don’t own a PS3. So please, don’t accuse me of any fanboyism. I can’t talk about how great Resistance is if I’ve never played it.
And now, without further ado, onto the list!
(This is the last ado. The list begins after the jump.)
