T-SQL Tuesday 134 has been invited by James McGillivray (blog|twitter)
2020 was a strange year for us all. The pandemic has effected everybody to differing extents and we’ve all had to learn how to deal with the issues that have arisen this year. I’ve been introduced to some excellent games this year and they have been part of my coping strategy. I’d like to introduce you to some of these games.
This game is by far and away my favourite game that I have played in 2020. The game begins as you wake up by a camp fire and leads…. somewhere. I went into this game completely blind and was totally blown away by the setting, the story and the exploration.
My first major experience was of taking off a planet in my janky little space ship, trying to line up with the moon, and noticing tree tops entering my field of vision as the planet swatted me out of the sky while on its normal orbit.
If you have not played this game, I highly recommend it, but go in completely blind for the best experience.
Terraria is a fun little pixel survival game. You play as a character who has to explore the world while mining and dealing with threats. Playing with friends is by far the best way to play this game. You can work together to mine certain resources, build homes and deal with the threats of the world.
I’ve spent 130 hours playing this game, most of which was over a couple of weeks when the latest patch was released. It was a great way to connect with friends and have fun.
Arguably one of the most popular games of the year, Among Us pits little tic-tac space people against one another. There are impostors planted within the crew and the crew’s job is to complete their tasks or to throw the impostors out of the air lock before they’re all killed. The impostor’s job is to kill the crew before they’re discovered.
Lies and deceit with friends is excellent fun. How much do you really know them? Can they be trusted? Are they going to shank you the moment you turn your back? Are you going to shank them?
