This monthís musing topic is multiplayer. Like nearly everybody else, I have had countless amazing and fun times playing multiplayer games. However, the most fun I had was when I didnít play by the rules- of the game, that is. Instead, my friend and I made new rules, creating new games. Now, Iím not talking about a local metagame, such as when my friends banned me from using the Rayfall in Custom Robo
. (I was somehow winning while using it) Iím talking about make-believe, using games for playtime, creating new stories.
Now, without this friend, itís unlikely that Iíd even be on Destructoid. Heís the main reason that Iím such a humongous Nintendo fanboy. He and I could not get enough- Kirby, Smash Bros, Pokemon, you name it! We would have lightsaber fights in his backyard, and then he would play the Pokemon Gold/Silver bike theme on the piano. (A tune that he still maintains to be one of the catchiest ever. Trust me, I did my research.) Simply put, a great pal. (Who I may be embarrassing right now. Sorry, buddy!)
