Get Your Game On

Video Games for every horoscope sign

by Jeff Kishner

Although movies get most of the press, the video game industry rakes in billions of dollars each year. Video games generate enough fans, in fact, that September 12 has actually been proclaimed a holiday of sorts: National Video Game Day.

And while a single game title costs five times more than one ticket at the multiplex, it offers more hours of engagement, as well as fun time with friends and family. Fortunately, there are so many video game genres out there, there's something to appeal to everyone. Read on to learn which type of video game will appeal to your horoscope sign. 

Aries (March 21 - April 19) 

Fighting Games

Who put the "Mars" in "martial arts?" Your planetary ruler, that's who! Whether you're into kickboxing or just kicking butt, there's no end to the fighting moves you can rely on to beat down your opponent. Yes, it's brutal, but better to get your aggression out on an imaginary opponent than on that annoyance in the next cubicle.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Action/Platformer Games

Slow and steady wins, and luckily your sign seriously values predictability and methodical actions. These are great traits when your task is conquering various challenges to move on to the next level in a game. You like to sit on your couch all day anyway, so why not spend twelve hours on Donkey Kong?

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Driving Games

Your sign rules local transportation, so whether you're the next Tony Hawk or you're into drag racing, strap on your virtual helmet and get ready, set, go! This genre will appeal to speed freaks as well as those who like to master courses -- or just ram into other vehicles.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Educational GamesYour sign is ruled by the Moon, significator of family and the parent-child bond. Go to a mommy forum if you want to have lively debates about the merits of video games for the very-young crowd, but if you don't mind sitting your child down in front of a monitor, there are many well-designed titles to stimulate their growing cortical connections.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Party GamesFace it: many games are more engrossing and optimally frustrating than "fun." If you're less interested in immersing yourself into a fantasy world and would prefer hanging with a group of friends, try fast-paced mini-games designed for short bursts of raucous pleasure.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Puzzle Games

If your resume states "excellent attention to detail," then these games are right up your alley. Your logical mind excels at anything from math problems to matching three of the same-colored doodads. Fortunately for you, many of these games will fit on your phone, so there's no need to invest in a $300 console.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Strategy GamesYou'd initially think that strategizing about how to beat your opponent's troops -- or how to knock down his or her Queen -- would be unappealing to this Venus-ruled sign. However, Libra is associated with the house of "open enemies," and this Air sign is awfully good at leading its enemy down the wrong path. Is it any wonder so many lawyers are Libras?

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

First-person Shooter Games

Like Aries, your sign is ruled by Mars, god of war. But you also have Pluto, god of total mass destruction, on your side. You like nothing more than to get your seething underground rage out on imaginary enemies. Whether fighting zombies, aliens or soldiers, that satisfying "splat!" you get from hitting your target satisfies your sweet spot.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Sports Games

The sign of the Archer is a sports enthusiast, thriving on the quest for excellence as well as the joy of group effort toward a common goal. You can play hyper-realistic football from the comfort or your couch, or get a major workout swinging a Wii remote to hit a golf ball. Either way, these games are almost like the real thing.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Simulation Games

Some folks play video games to enter worlds unimagined. Others -- that's you, Capricorn -- want to immerse themselves into the most accurate representation of reality possible. Jet simulation games provide a sense of mastery, giving you the impression that you could actually fly one of those things if given the chance.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MMORPGs)

These epic games -- like World of Warcraft -- have no set end, allowing you to play virtually forever with a vast assortment of folks situated all over the world. And what could be more Aquarian than gathering a group of creatures with different powers and skill-sets to reach a common goal?

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Role-Playing Games (RPGs)

Pisces can easily stay unplugged from the 'net, losing yourself in a fantasy world, slaying dragons and collecting gold. Your sign can only take so much "people energy" before you get worn out -- these games allow you to rejuvenate without having to collaborate.
