Favorite Power Trip Games

#1WebcadetPosted 10/18/2013 10:07:48 AM
Hello Friends. I'm in the mood for some 'will to power' entertainment and was hoping to get a list of people's favorite power trip games. I found the original prototype game to be extremely satisfying. Despite having a crappy finale and too much late game grinding, Earth Defense Force: Armageddon had a lot of campy and destructive charm.

If at first you don't succeed... sky diving is not for you.

Just Cause 2. Especially when modded.

Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row 4 (haven't played it, but I'm guessing based on what I've seen so far) are also good.

Indeed, Just Cause 2 with the Superman mod is wonderful... feels so good to lay waste to a base then blast off ala Neo for that extra stylistic touch =)

Saints Row 4 can give you a nice superpowered feel as well, especially considering it has a very Prototype-ish vibe when you factor in the mobility powers.

If you don't mind an older choice, Black & White can make you feel properly godlike, you're a god in-game after all. Flinging peasants over the horizon never gets old... until you run out of peasants that is.

I also thought the SimCity games have an empowering feel, if only because you can summon natural disasters and Godzilla to destroy your city in so many pleasing ways.

Populous also satisfies on this level, but I'm only familiar with the old version from 20-some-odd years ago.
