Tomorrow is the 4th of July in America, which means people will be blowing stuff up, eating and drinking too much, and probably chanting USA.
With that in mind, I wanted to present my top 5 #Murica games, because America is number 1!
(Authors Note: This is a joke list. I really do like all these games, but thought this was a neat way to write about them. Work was hard, so I didn’t feel like doing a real blog post. #Sorrynotsorry)
With that out of the way:
Number 5: Pandemic
Pandemic is all about America saving the world from impending doom, and if every Hollywood movie I’ve ever seen has taught me anything, it’s that there might be some people from other countries who help, but it’s American ingenuity that saves the day. Besides, you start in Atlanta, which is in America. Need I say more?
Rating: 3 American Flags
Number 4: Food Chain Magnate
There is nothing more American than running ad campaigns so that people indulge themselves on burgers and beer and other things. Ensuring you make the most money is the cherry on top of the freedom sundae that is this game.
Rating: 4 Burgers and a Beer
Number 3: Washington’s War
It has THE Father of our country in the title. It could have been Washington’s Unicorn Fairy Monopoly Jamboree and it still would have been considered for this list. You get to beat up on the British if you are the lucky player and that is really what Independence Day is all about.
Rating: 1 Cherry Tree, 1 Set of False Teeth, and 1 River Crossing
Number 2: Baseball Highlights 2045
It has our national pastime in it AND robots. How can this not be good? It combines names of famous baseball players in the past which is important too.
Rating: 3 Balls, 2 Strikes in the bottom of the 9th with bases loaded.
Number 1: Scythe
I’m probably going to get a lot of flak for this decision, because you are probably saying to yourself “HEY! AMERICA ISN’T EVEN IN THIS GAME?!?! WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO PULL?!?!”
This game has former Soviet Bloc countries fighting amongst themselves for control of resources and stuff. If that isn’t the American dream (from, like, the 80s or something) then I don’t know what is.
Rating: 1 Giant Bald Eagle
So there you have it. The top 5 games about #Murica as seen by me. I’ll be playing one of these on the 4th and am really looking forward to it. Feel free to share your top 5 from wherever you come from!
