VG247’s The Best Games Ever Podcast – Ep.42: The best game you could complete as your real self

Could you be… a plumber? Welcome to VG247’s Best Games Ever Podcast: Episode 42 – The best game you could complete as your real self. Video games allow us to live our wildest power fantasies, such as “plumber”, or “murderer”. But what if you had to endure a game world not as some souped-up avatar, but just as yourself? You? Little, pathetic ol’ you, with your savings account, and your Nissan Qashqai? You wouldn’t last two minutes in the mushroom kingdom, mate.

Kick Blue Monday up the bum with the games that make you smile

Apparently today is Blue Monday, the most depressing day of the year. I’m not sure what that means. Surely the first Monday we’re all back at work would be the worst? Or is this the one where we’ve had a while to realise that the promise of hope in the new year is, once again, a terrible lie? Perhaps. Either way, I refuse to submit. Enjoy the heck out of this Monday. Have your favourite thing for dinner. Watch your favourite movie. Have a bath and put on a cool playlist of songs and sing really loud to annoy your…

What games did you play during the break? Sound off in the comments…! Alex Donaldson, Assistant Editor I have to be…
