Every story has a beginning.. and mine starts with the classic consoles. From Atari, NES, to Gen. Odd how things worked out, from blips to characters sprawling over an open world. Either by pipe or a loop-de-loop. Those times have passed, but still are a part of our gamer hearts.
Well my playlist thus far.. Pitfall, Pac-Man, Super Mario Bros 1-3, Castlevania, Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star, Final Fantasy, Metroid, Earthworm Jim, Mega Man, and many more.. this list could take awhile trust me.
Lately I have been catching up on countdown's or "the best of" lists. Plus the award shows garnering acclaim for certain key titles I didn't pay attention towards. Honestly I don't have a "top 10"of my own to share for this year. But two titles I did enjoy picking up were... (drumroll) Sonic Generations, and The King of Fighters XIII.
Sorry I'm not hyped on "the must own game of the year" subtitled game. Just those two titles that have humbled me as a gamer.
First, Generations - Bringing two worlds together, classic and modern. Crazy, yet fun re-imagined levels that we grew up with. Plus a fun soundtrack, mixing together classic tunes and remixes that will keep you humming them for days. *And getting to play Casino Night Pinball. =D
King of Fighters XIII - A completely revamped series, classic KOF gameplay, and it looks gorgeous too! Plus a fun soundtrack, (bonus for those that pre-ordered) a collection of tunes crossing 4 CD's and XIII's OST.) And it totally makes up for XII's missing elements that held it back. Plus a netcode update (coming soon)
With all the titles this year, these two are fun additions to any gamer's library. Sure its not Skyrim, or (insert title here). But hey at least they are worth playing and that's what counts.
