Random Video Game Blogging: Favorite Main Quest
Stuck in a swing state where I'm inundated by television ads and candidates keep littering on my doorstep by leaving various pamphlets telling me to vote for this person or that person*, I've been playing even more video games than usual trying to ignore the fact that my only choices for Senate are George "Macaca" Allen and the Democrat running to his right, Tim Kaine. So anyway, I got bored and went back to Fallout 3. And I realized that of all the RPGs I've played in the last several years, it's main quest is my favorite. Why? Because bringing fresh water to a post-nuclear holocaust world is both just big enough to matter, but small enough to actually still be on a human scale.
I think New Vegas and Skyrim are better games. But just starting the main quest in Fallout 3 compels me to finish it. It's my favorite thing about the game, which is almost never true of the main quests in these big open world games.
So, what's your favorite video game main quest?
Also, on another random note is Assassin's Creed 3 (Boston! American Revolution!) any good?
* I'd like to thank the realtor organization for nicely summarizing in its endorsement the city council candidates who are the proponents of selling out even more to developers, that one will save me some time.
