Fire. Humans have sought it out ever since we were created. To this day, we all are still attracted to fire. But not just that. Explosions, e another type of fire, is also something we desire. So much that video games are now working especially hard to make the most out of explosions, breaking stuff, and fire. Here are five games that range in ratings that explosions are definitely present in.
A game made with help from Steven Spielberg, Boomblox is a game where structures of blocks are set before you, and you must destroy them. Sometimes there are explosion blocks that will blow up everything around it. It's awesome to see a large block castle being destroyed.
Rampage: Total Destruction
Rampage was an arcade game where you moved from city to city flattening the buildings. This game was made to be very similar, but overall better, than the arcade game. There are a TON of buildings to destroy and a TON of monsters to do it!
All of the burnouts have pretty awesome explosions and racing, but this one takes the cake. There is a complete mode for causing THE BIGGEST, BADDEST, CAR ACCIDENT THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN! Yep! You drive into a high traffic zone and BOOM! Explosions, cars flipping, it's all there.
Just Cause 2
This game is famous for one thing. It's this. The objective is do anything you want, and have fun doing it. These game designers were smart, because they know humans love explosions just like I do. They made the explosions SO BIG and AWESOME that you can't resist flying that 747 airplane into a water tower! What about flying a car off a ramp into a military base? OR, maybe the good,ol' "Let's-drive-a-car-at-high-speed-towards-a-gas-station-and-jump-out-before-it-hits-the-pump!"
Battlefield Bad Company 2
This is a first person shooter where anything goes. Quite literally too. Anything can be blown up or shot away. Building can be completely destroyed, sand bags that may have protected that sniper can be removed with some grenades, and cover is always being destroyed. It's always great to have some tank drivers as friends...
And those are my five games that you will LOVE if you are a pyromaniac! See ya next time!
