Can you imagine a CEO whose favorite game is Saints Row 4? Well, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk isn't your average CEO. In fact, there are a few other games that he actually enjoys!
The known billionaire Elon Musk has never really been shy about how much he likes games and how it is a common hobby for him. He even oftentimes references games on his social media.
What are Elon Musk's favorite games?
About a few months ago, a particular Twitter user asked the eccentric Elon Musk what his very own all-time non-negotiable favorite video game is and the Tesla CEO replied with a total of seven of his favorite games!
Apparently, aside from Saints Row 4, Elon Musk also enjoys Deus Ex, BioShock, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Half-Life 2, and Mass Effect 2! Can you imagine that despite handling Tesla, SpaceX, and now Neuralink, Elon Musk would have time for games?
Deus Ex / Half-Life 2 / Bioshock / Mass Effect 2 / Fallout 3 & New Vegas / Saints Row IV — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) June 21, 2020
Despite mentioning the games, Elon Musk did not really give an explanation as to why these are his favorite video games, but it should also be noted that he has actually made reference to a few of these games before.
Elon Musk even compared himself to a particular Deus Ex protagonist sometime before which then caused quite a backlash as a lot of people stated that he actually had much more in common with the game's main villain instead.
Musk's very own choices consist of a few titles that are actually largely considered some of the very best in history. Most of them are even first-person games that involve a deep focus on the story itself.
With the reveal that happened a few months ago, Elon Musk finally gave fans a colorful picture of what type of games he actually enjoys playing during his free time. Interestingly enough, not a single game mentioned was actually from the whole current-generation of gaming so it kind of seems like there weren't any powerful enough games during the recent years that have had an impact on the tech CEO.
With that being said, Elon Musk has also spoken in favor of the whole current-gen games back in the past. Notably, Elon Musk has been expressing his praise for Overwatch a few times over during the past few years.
Likes Overwatch but wants to "delete" Fortnite?
Elon Musk called Blizzard's Overwatch game both "amazing" and also "soothing." It was also indicated that he may actually be a huge fan of NieR: Automata, and has also confirmed that he thinks that his Super Smash Bros. Ultimate main is none other than his Zero Suit Samus.
Although Elon Musk might hold the games that he listed in much higher regard, he still does appreciate the more modern games, though he might not actually have been serious all the time.
Elon Musk has even joked around that he might actually delete Fortnite from existence, but it's currently unclear as to how he actually feels about the popular battle royale game.
Oh yeah, if it's still surprising that he plays video games, it's worth noting that he previously programmed a game himself and sold it when he was much younger.
