During spring break, there will be a lot of time to enjoy hobbies and time with family. Here are five amazing game series that will be sure to make even the rainiest days joyous. Be assured that these are in no particular order, and they are all amazing series.  


“Uncharted” (PS3, PS4. 4 games)

In this wild third-person adventure shooter, players take the role of treasure hunter Nathan Drake. Drake’s adventures span four games and countless lost cities, and the games never feel bland or slow. Naughty Dog poured their heart and soul into this series, and it comes out in the engaging story and jaw dropping visuals. This is the game for anyone who likes high action, history, and a cool story.

“Pokemon” (All of Nintendo’s handheld systems. 16 games)

If you like collecting things and striving to be the best, the “Pokemon” series will be a great fit. For new players, I recommend starting with the newer games such as “Pokemon: Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby,” or “Pokemon: Sun and Moon.” That being said, the “Pokemon” series is pretty strong all around, and any game is worth your time (except “Black and White 2”).

“Wolfenstein” (PC, PS2, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One. 10 games)

The “Wolfenstein” series is an oldie, but a goodie, and one of my favorite series. First debuting in 1981, this series has progressed more than any other  game on this list. “Wolfenstein” has been rebooted many a time, but the most recent games, developed by Machine Games, are the best so far.  I highly recommend “Wolfenstein: The New Order” (the newest of the series) and the first 3D game of the series, “Wolfenstein 3D.” These games are for anyone that enjoys first person shooters with a good story.   

“Fallout” (PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One. 5 games)

“Fallout” is my favorite series, and for a good reason. The first “Fallout” was groundbreaking in its brilliant mix of turn based combat and RPG elements rarely used in the 1990’s. After “Fallout 2,” Interplay, the developers, went through financial problems and sold the game to Bethesda, who have developed the last three games. My all time favorite game of this series is “Fallout: New Vegas,” but you really cannot go wrong with any of the games, even if “Fallout 4” lacks a lot of the RPG elements that make the series unique.   

“Borderlands” (PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One. 3 games)

The “Borderlands” series is funny, engaging, and addicting. There are thousands of customizations and guns, making variety limitless, while engaging story and quests keep players busy for hours at a time. It is also co-op, with up to four players on a game together causing mayhem and having a ton of fun. While “Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel” falls extremely flat (I do not recommend it), “Borderlands” and “Borderlands 2,” are some of the funniest games you will ever play. Recommended for anyone who likes first person shooters with large amounts of customization and hilarious jokes.
