Happy Fourth of July! In honor of this great nation’s holiday, it felt appropriate to celebrate by counting down not just the top 5 American video games of all time, but instead the top 5 ‘MURICA games of all times. Light your M-80s, fry up some bacon and enjoy the list!

5. BROFORCE

Broforce is an insane side-scroller developed by an indie team named Free Lives. The game is described as ‘run and gun,’ with much more of the emphasis on gun than run. The game is a satirical representation on the bald-eagle-riding, explosion-loving side of ‘MURICA. The main character is always a hyper-masculine spoof of a beloved American action hero. For example, there’s RamBRO instead of Rambo or B.A. BROracus instead of B.A. Baracus. The best part about this whole thing is that the game does not rank higher on the list because the dev team is actually based in South Africa!

4. Duke Nukem

Duke-Nukem-Forever-03

Perhaps the most ‘MURICAN video game character of all-time has got to be the commander-in-chief himself: Duke Nukem. The man has an affinity for jet packs, guns, women, guns, Ray-Bans, and… guns! With some of the most memorable oneliners, Duke Nukem in his day was the most badass character of the ’90s… Unfortunately, he stumbled a bit when he made his comeback in Duke Nukem: Forever, but we will always have fond memories of perhaps the greatest gum chewin’ ‘MURICAN of all time.

3. 18 Wheeler: American Pro Trucker

Breaker, Breaker, 10-4 good buddy… Okay I’m all out of trucker terms… Back before Ice Road Truckers but sometime after B.J. and the Bear, the best way to get your mother trucking fix was the game 18 Wheeler: American Pro Trucker. It had everything you could want in a trucking game: trucks, racing trucks, and parking trucks. Trucking can be considered one of the most ‘MURICAN jobs ever, and this game represented the craft with uncanny simulation that was never again matched.

2. NASCAR The Game: Inside Line

Every ‘MURICAN knows that the most important thing in life is how fast your car can go and nothing on planet Earth goes around left corners over and over again like NASCAR. NASCAR The Game: Inside Line is a sports game for real ‘MURICANS unlike sissy stick and ball sports. In this game, you get to play as some great American athletes like Dale Earnhardt, Jr., and it had a kick-ass soundtrack with Uncle Kracker on it!

1. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter

It may be a surprise to many that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter made it to #1, but hear me out. The previous games all focused on things and past times that true red-blooded ‘MURICANS love, we have not covered yet things that they hate. Advanced Warfighter has both! As we talked about before, ‘MURICANS love guns, army, and shooting guns, and what better targets for said guns than TERRORISTS! Now shooting terrorists happens in many games, what makes this one so special? Well how many games had the testicular fortitude to make the terrorists those “‘MURICAN job stealin’ Mexicans!”
