Music video games are part of a very unique genre. They typically challenge players to follow certain sequences of movement while dictating specific tempo and rhythm. Some music games require the player to input said rhythm by stepping on a dance pad, or by using a device based on a specific musical instrument. Music games have changed the interaction between players and their consoles by making the entire gaming experience more active. It’s worth noting that this particular video game genre has good influence on the music industry. It is evidenced by a significant raise of legal downloads of songs.
Recently, top music games such as Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and Sing Star have achieved huge popularity among casual gamers. They are played almost exclusively on consoles as the PC is not always suited for this type of “active gaming”.
Here on Games Republic, a true gamer can find only the best music games. Check them out and show everybody your moves!When people say “FPS”, they usually think about either Doom or Quake. The latter, albeit much younger, was definitely the more “active” on the market which resulted in many installments in the series. It’s one of the most iconic titles in the FPS genre, with millions of loyal fans across the world.
Quake is a series of first-person shooters, starting with the game of the same name. In first Quake (released in 1996) players must find their way through various maze-like, dark, medieval environments while battling a variety of monsters using a wide array of weapons. Quake II (1997) and Quake 4 (2005) are equally dark but unlike Quake set in the future where humans are in conflict with a cybernetic race known only as the Strogg. The third installment in the series, Quake III Arena (1999), was a multiplayer-focused FPS and a response to the increasingly popular Unreal Tournament game.
Quake games are iconic and even now, after all these years, they can bring a smile on gamer’s face. A title definitely worth trying!Hide
