Ever felt that there are some games that you’re better at than others? It may be because of your zodiac sign. Find out what games you should be playing here!
Have you ever booted up a game, put in 15 minutes of playtime, and felt like it wasn’t quite clicking?
Believe it or not, that could be due to more than only game design. In actuality, it could be due in part to your personality type as laid out by your zodiac sign.
Dating back to Ancient Greece, zodiac signs have long been a way to better understand your personality.
But how exactly does that translate to games? Well, better than you may think.
Check out our recommended zodiac games and see how well they match up with your playstyle.
Aries (March 20 – April 20): DOOM
Fire is the symbol of Aries, with Mars as its ruling planet. If you’re an Aries, you’re all about passion and boldness, as dictated by your love horoscope.
Suffice to say, the 2017 Switch port of DOOM is a pretty good fit, placing players in the shoes of the Doomslayer as he rips and tears through horde after horde of demons on, you guessed it, Mars.
DOOM will undoubtedly deliver the fast, fierce gameplay you’re after, so give it a go.
Taurus (April 20 – May 21): Dark Souls Remastered
Tauruses are known for their fierce determination and independence. And between the tough as nails bosses and the fun (and sometimes frustrating) trial-and-error gameplay of Dark Souls, we think the recent remaster is a great fit for you.
Dark Souls will test your patience in the best possible way, rewarding you for taking a subdued approach to combat while encouraging exploration.
Gemini (May 21 – June 21): The Jackbox Party Pack
What’s a better series for someone who’s outgoing, fun, and the life of the party?
The Jackbox Party Pack is always a good time, whether you’re playing with gaming vets or non-gamers.
Your cunning nature will help you craft the perfect lie in Fibbage, where you’ll have to fool your friends. Then, your quick-wittedness will help you come up with a clever, crowd-pleasing answer in Quiplash.
Best of all, the Jackbox games go on sale on a pretty regular basis, so you should be able to pick up the latest iteration of the series at a pretty nice discount.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Yoku’s Island Express
Kindness, hope, and emotional depth are the defining traits of Cancers. And last year, no game embodied the spirit of fun and hope like Yoku’s Island Express.
Everything about the fantastical world exudes happiness and fun.
From its cheerful soundtrack to the fast-paced pinball/Metroidvania hybrid gameplay, you’d be hard pressed to play Yoku’s without smiling.
In an era of massive, open-world games, sometimes it’s nice to get back to the basics.
Leo (July 22 – August 23): Minecraft
Minecraft is one of the few horoscope games that could fit under any category, really. But after reading up on the personality traits of Leos, it seems like the perfect match.
Leos don’t like to live by anyone else’s rules. Instead, they prefer to pave their own path in life, relying on their creativity.
So go ahead and make your own world. The only limit in Minecraft is your own imagination.
Virgo (August 23 – September 23): Civilization VI
We know — yes, it’s another port. But hey, in our defense, the Switch is a great console for shrinking down larger games without sacrificing any of the quality.
Sid Mier’s Civilization VI is a perfect example. The PC gaming staple has long been a fan favorite among strategy game lovers.
Requiring strategic thinking and a whole lot of intellect, Civ VI will put your cause-and-effect skills to the test.
Though Civ isn’t known for its pick-up-and-play nature (games can last days), if you’re willing to put in the time, Civ VI will scratch that intellectual itch.
Libra (September 23 – October 23): Pokemon Let’s GO
Libras are the perfect counterpart to Aries. Where Aries are bold and passionate, Libras prefer quiet and comfort.
Let’s GO may not be the first Pokemon game to let you around with your Pokemon — that honor technically belongs to its predecessor, Pokemon Yellow. It isn’t even the first to let you pet your Pokemon.
But Let’s GO is the first game in the franchise to let you treat your Pokemon like an actual pet.
From encouraging your Pikachu or Eevee in the heat of a battle to giving them a belly rub to strengthen your bond, Let’s GO is perfect for those who want to foster a relationship with something.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22): Firewatch
Firewatch thrusts you into a vast, mysterious park in Wyoming with little to no information. And we mean no information. For reference, you don’t know most of the other characters’ names for most of the game.
Yet Firewatch grants players a shocking amount of agency for a walking simulator.
Players can unravel mysteries, take in breathtaking sights, and even arrest unruly park guests.
What you do is (for the most part) up to you — a Scorpio’s dream.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
According to popular belief, Sagittariuses are curious and energetic, constantly craving adventure.
No franchise is better at capturing the wonder and excitement of exploring than the Legend of Zelda series.
If you’ve yet to experience Breath of the Wild for yourself, forget what you know about Zelda. The series you knew from Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask is no more.
In its place stands an expansive, overwhelming behemoth of a map filled with challenges, memorable characters, and the coolest iteration of Ganon yet.
It’s the most modern, AAA feeling game Nintendo has published to date, rivaling the Far Cry series and Horizon: Zero Dawn.
We cannot gush about Breath of the Wild enough. Do yourself a favor and give it a shot.
Capricorn (December 21 – January 20): Dead Cells
For a Capricorn, the perfect game offers a challenge. Something that’s easy to pick up and hard to master.
Something like, say, Dead Cells.
Dead Cells may take its aesthetic inspiration from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. But its gameplay is pure Dark Souls.
Enemies can wipe your character out in a single hit, putting your zodiac sign’s fighting skills to the test, and the upgrade system requires serious thought and strategy.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Super Mario Odyssey
Remember the joy you felt when you first played Super Mario 64? You’d never seen anything like it and never would again!
Well, that’s what we thought, anyway. Then Super Mario Odyssey showed us how nice it is to be wrong.
Odyssey’s map is huge, spanning any kind of environment and level design a gamer could want. When married to the game’s encouragement for exploration, it’s the perfect game for an Aquarius who prefers to take in a game at their own pace.
Pisces (February 18 – March 20): Overcooked! 2
Pisces are all about teamwork and helping others. And Overcooked! 2 is a fantastic chance to let those skills shine.
Players must come together to create the perfect meal, with each player getting a dedicated station. But put it all together before the clock runs out or else you’ll lose!
Overcooked requires precise timing, perfect communication, and a whole lot of patience. Give it a shot next time you’re looking for a party game or something to play with a loved one.
