Why We Play Our Favorite Games


(click to enlarge)

This is a pretty cool little graphic from the folks over at Kotaku that breaks down the reasons as to why we play the top 100 games of all time.  What are the top 100? Eh, imagine practically every classic franchise ever, and it’s bound to have at least one game on there.

I thought it was strange that “salvation” was one of the primary reasons for fighting behind many games, but then I realized they mean “saving the [kingdom, world, universe] rather than a spiritual awakening or sin absolution. I guess that makes more sense. I also find it funny that “goo” and “tentacles” need rescuing some time.
