30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 28!

Day 28: Favorite Game Developer.

Well, this one is super easy for me, and you probably won’t be surprised by my answer!

Of course it’s Nintendo! There are many game series that I love, but Nintendo has consistently created some of my favorite titles. I’m partial to them anyway since some of my fondest childhood memories involve me playing Nintendo games. πŸ˜‰

30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 27!

Day 27: Most Epic Scene Ever.

Meh… WHY am I feeling so uninspired these last couple questions? It’s like I can’t think of anything at all for my answers. Most epic scene… hmm… oh, I know! When Baby Bowser turns into gigantic Bowser in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island for the SNES!

The first time I saw this scene (hey, I was 9) I was really blown away. I couldn’t believe how huge Bowser got! It definitely threw me for a loop, and I probably would’ve described the scene as “epic” had that been a thing when I was 9. Yep, it’s the best I can come up with right now.

Day 26: Best Voice Acting.

Um… I’m probably not the best person to be asking this question. I feel like I haven’t played many games lately that had significant voice acting in them. Since I’m pretty much drawing a blank, I’m going to draw inspiration from my answer yesterday and say Persona 4: Dancing All Night!

Though I haven’t played all the way through the game, I was pretty impressed with the voices thus far.

I read online that some people disliked Rise’s voice because they got a different voice actor for this game. I had nothing to base it on, though, so I don’t mind her voice. πŸ™‚

Day 25: A Game You Plan On Playing.

Why don’t you just take a look at my backlogΒ and shake your head at all the games I’ve listed as “unplayed”? Those are all games I definitely plan on playing at some point! However, one game I SWEAR I’m going to get to soon is…

Persona 4 Golden for the PS Vita! As I have written about in earlier posts, I bought Persona 4: Dancing All Night (which is the semi-sequel to Persona 4) and thought it was a lot of fun. When I realized it was a sequel, however, I really wanted to play Persona 4, despite the fact that you didn’t really need to play it to understand the story of Dancing All Night at all.

I bought Persona 4 Golden for the Vita because it is an enhanced port of Persona 4 with some great new additions added in. Plus, my Vita really needed some love and this seems like the perfect game to take with me on the go! Of course, my attention is elsewhere right now in gaming, but Persona 4 Golden is near the top of my list of games to play next!

30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 24!

Day 24: Favorite Classic Game.

Is it sad that I don’t really consider games from my childhood “classic” games?! I feel like those games aren’t old enough to be considered classic, although kids these days think the NES and SNES are ancient history. Maybe I just don’t want to admit that I’m getting older! πŸ˜‰

Anyway, I’ll answer this question with the mindset that a “classic” game is something that was released before I was born. With that being said, I gotta go with Pac-Man!

There is something about Pac-Man that is so wonderful. All these years after its release, it still holds an appeal that is unique and timeless. Disclaimer: I really suck at this game, but I have fun playing it anyway, just to see if I can beat my high score! It doesn’t matter how you good you are at games, though- anyone can play Pac-Man! πŸ™‚

Day 23: Game You Think Had the Best Graphics or Art Style.

This one is so difficult to answer! Any answer I give will be purely subjective, because what one person thinks is so great might not appeal to other people.

I’m going to go with a game that I truly spent a lot of time marveling over how pretty it was: Super Mario Galaxy for the Wii.

Super Mario Galaxy had so many areas that were just so beautiful and begged to be explored! There may be “better” art styles, but this is one of those games where I really did admire the graphics.

The water levels in particular were super pretty. That reminds me, I never did beat the final Bowser level in this game. Whoops! I need to finish that up. πŸ˜‰

P.S. I just did a scheduled post for this blog entry, since here in the U.S. we are celebrating Thanksgiving and I’m probably going to be busy stuffing my face with way too much food! Happy Thanksgiving to those who are celebrating! πŸ™‚

30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 22!

Day 22: A Game Sequel Which Disappointed You.

I hate to say a game “disappoints” me, but if I had to pick one, it would be Harvest Moon: Another Wonderful Life for the GameCube.

I don’t know if this is really considered a proper sequel to Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life, but I’m going to pretend it is in any case. I loved that game, so when Another Wonderful Life was released, I was excited to play that too!

The problem? It’s pretty much the EXACT same story as A Wonderful Life, except you are a girl. Seriously?That’s it? Harvest Moon games are not exactly short, so I was not in the mood to play an entire game over again just to be able to play as a girl and have a different item here or there. I’m still not in the mood to do that, and this game came out in 2004. Maybe one day I’ll get to it. Who knows.
