Let’s face it, the world
is kind of a garbage fire right now. Self-care is real and, personally, I turn
to TV, video games, and books when I need a little escapism. Video games are
great because you can fully immerse yourself in a new world, assume the role of
a character who is often unlike yourself, and make decisions that directly
impact your (ahem, I mean, your character’s) chance of survival. My favorite
type of games are female-centric and heavily story-based (shocking, I know),
with a bit of action thrown in. In fact, I just finished playing The Last of Us and am anxiously awaiting
news of the sequel’s release!
Whether you’re into RPGs,
first-person shooters, survival horror, or MMOGs, these books will make you
feel like you’ve never left the virtual world.
