Dad vs Videogames 🎮


After taking a long break from the game, I've recently come back to Ghost Recon Wildlands. This is a wonderful game if you like military shooters and an open world. It's kinda like The Division, but with more realism (no spongy enemies here) and the option for AI teammates.

This game requires patience and strategy, something you'll needs lots of once you get deeper into the game. That doesn't mean it's a bad game. It's just built different. Maybe even built for a different time (even if it only came out back in 2017). New games now are all about instant gratification. This game is more about delayed gratification, if that even makes sense. This game is more like Metal Gear Solid, where you spend a good amount of time planning your moves, then executing them perfectly. It's more like Chess instead of say Tic Tac Toe.

This review gives a good look at what makes Ghost Recon Wildlands great.


The squad Meet the squad. Unlike in The Division, you get three AI teammates in Ghost Recon Wildlands. They are really helpful if you play solo like me. That's yours truly up front. Weaver on the right. Holt on the left. And Midas.... well Midas is somewhere back there.

As you can see on my character, I equipped a suppressor on all my weapons. While you can go all guns blazing in Ghost Recon Wildlands, you'll have much better success going the stealth route. Also, try to get an assault rifle with a grenade launcher attachment. It can be really helpful against enemy vehicles and enemy choppers.
