So I’ve been playing a lot of Ancestor’s: The Humankind Odyssey recently, and the thought that keeps creeping into my head is “I should play Far Cry: Primal after this and continue my path through history.” I started thinking what if I just continued to play through games in chronological order until I reached present times or possibly even continue into the far future?
Of course, I could just have a playthrough of Civ 6 and call it a day, but this idea kind of excites me. I haven’t checked the times too thoroughly, but I’m currently thinking about playing through the following games (using only games I own):
- Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey
- Far Cry Primal
- Assassin’s Creed Origins
- At The Gates
- Dragons Dogma (let me have this)
- A Plague Tale: Innocence
- Battle Chef Brigade (let me have this too)
- Dishonored 2
- The Sinking City
- Mafia III
- Quadrilateral Cowboy (okay I’m going off the rails here)
- Katamari Damacy
- State of Decay 2
- Quantum Break
- The Surge
- Shadowrun: Dragonfall
- Um… Endless Space 2?
Obviously this isn’t a complete idea, and I don’t know if I can do this while keeping up with All The Games I Want To Play, but even just as a mental exercise, making this list was fun!
What games would you play if you had to play in chronological order from ancient times to the present? Are there any games I should play instead of the ones listed? Should I have more Assassin’s Creed games on this list?
EDIT: As mentioned below, the list is very euro-centric. I would love any recommendations for games that explore history or culture outside of european history!
