The One Video Game We'd Choose to Play on a Deserted Island

GameDynamo - "Imagine the world as you know it has ended, at least for you. You're stuck in a deserted island, with no hopes of ever going back to civilization, no Internet connection, no friends... I know, pretty misserable, but hey, you get to choose a video game, one that'll keep you entertained for hours on end... And you know what? Somehow the game console works, but you only have that one game to play. Which one would you pick? What video game would you take with you to a deserted island? Here at GameDynamo we tried to answer that question the best we could." (Final Fantasy VI, Mario Kart Wii, Minecraft, Nintendo DS, PC, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Pokémon Black Version 2, PS3, Retro, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Wii, Xbox 360)

I'd definitely have to pick something dynamic that would change each time played, like a puzzle game. I couldn't play the same scripted game over and over. Or you could cheat and pick a game collection, get multiple games on the same disc :)

Grand Theft Auto 5 or San Andreas, Little Big Planet so you can Create New Levels, Skyrim With all the DLC would be cool also

I would hate to think what would become of someone after playing nothing but gta for a few months on a deserted island. Once you got back to civilization, it would be pretty freakin hard to resist swerving into pedestrians.

probably take my everquest classic, or something that was social so i didnt go crazy
DarkTower805  +   1064d ago
No internet though. But yeah, without social interaction you'd probably start going nuts and start talking to the video game characters like they were real lol.

if it wasnt Tetris, I'd have to go a game with new game plus done right, like demons/dark souls

Hitman Blood Money. That game blew my mind with just how many different way you could complete a mission.

Maybe Morrowind. It's a very deep game, but hard to find the time to devote to it. That wouldn't exactly be a problem in this case. :)

You won't be playing any games if there's no electricity on a deserted island.

I'd play "Build a Boat."

best game ever

I would think you'd be too busy hunting or gathering if on a deserted island.

Video games should be the last thing you do unless you've completely lost your sanity.

I'd choose MGS collection. Sure, it's might be cheating having 3 games, but the amount of content presented right there would last a while. If not that, Mass Effect trilogy.

If I were stuck on a desert island, I'd be spending half my time surviving, and the other half of my time... enjoying being on a desert island.

So long as there's no typhoon, actually getting to spend some time on a tropical island trumps, by far, any transient pleasure offered by any game.

Diablo 2.
