Top 10 Video Games Every Marketer Should Play

Long has there been a debate over whether or not video games make you less intelligent or not. Recent studies show that video games have many advantages. They require skills to play which in turn develop your computational intelligence. These skills can apply in your job as a marketer where critical thinking, strategy and being two steps ahead are a must.

Downwell

This game is deceptive in its simplicity. It is about falling down a well and your main goal is to get to the bottom without dying. This game draws out all the strategy and planning you can master to help you survive.

Her Story

This is a game based on solving cold cases by watching a series of videos and picking out the clues as you go. If you want to up the ante on your critical and analytical skills, this is the game to try.

Game of Thrones

George R. Martin’s books and the subsequent HBO series spawned a worldwide craze. The game resulting from that world does not disappoint. It serves intrigue, a story line and is all about strategy.

Rocket League

You might say you’ve had enough of soccer. However, the game plays and soccer simulations that this game delivers through the players (rocket cars), is stellar. This game will challenge your strategic mind and test how fast you can master the game plays.

Splatoon

This is an unlikely shooter game from Nintendo. This game is not about who is the best at taking head shots and sniping. It is about covering the stage with your particular shade of ink (they are squids). It is good fun but should you wish to take it a notch up, it will challenge your ability to think ahead.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

With a wealth of well developed characters and a dynamic complex world that keeps unfolding the longer you play, this game is a great time investment. The combat system of the game will test you in an all round manner.

Bloodborne

This game is tough! It is not for the faint at heart. There is no easing into it. You go head first in the deep end. You will also die more times than you can count. What you will get out of this is resilience, and the thirst to come back and keep trying till you win!

Super Mario Maker

Super Mario is a classic and has been a great staple in the gaming world. This game takes it to another level by enabling you to create your own levels and share them online with other game enthusiasts. It is interesting to take on the challenge of building an impossible level or even attempting to play an impossible level created by another player.

Until Dawn

Until Dawn appeals greatly to the tastes of horror lovers. That aside, it is also about the tough decisions that drastically change the outcome of the player’s future. Since your decisions ultimately shape the direction of the game, you can play it multiple times without a repeat sequence of events.

The Rise of the Tomb Raider

Yet another throwback on our list! This game takes our famous tomb raider back in time and to the wilds of Siberia. This game is an oldie but a goodie, challenging your reflexes and strategy.
