El Presidente: Gaming within a game

1999, For console gamers, online multiplayer was in the distant future and at the time, would have been assumed to be a sex act by anyone that heard it. In my little corner of the globe the Nintendo 64 rained supreme for one reason: 4 player multilayer.

If Resident Evil was a family bonding game, then the N64 was friend bonding over killing each other. My house was located on the way to school, so many of my friends would stop by my house before first class. Here I would play host to morning battle royals!

Super Smash Brothers, Perfect Dark, Mario Kart, Duke Nukem 64 and of course Golden Eye where all on heavy rotation. If Resident Evil was a family bonding game, then the N64 was friends bonding over killing each other in a variety of ways.

All of these efforts usually resulted in a slightly injured Jaws and very dead body guards. As you can imagine, this course of events turned out very poorly for El Presidente. The image of jaws emerging from a smoke filled hallway after a an explosion is one of my best memories of gaming with my friends. (That and we invented a theme song for El Presidente, which was sang constantly throughout the game. )

Id love to hear about any of your personal games you invented within games, wether the old or new, the more the better! As always, thanks for reading!

About kearns87one of us since 1:19 AM on 05.15.2012

My first gaming experience was on the Sega Mega Drive at a friends house, playing Sonic 2. The System hooked me immediately! Since then I have gamed (is that a word?) on a wide variety of consoles and have had great experiences with all of them.

The original Super Mario and Mario Cart on the the Super Nintendo. Golden Eye, Oceania of Time and Smash brothers on the N64. Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil (2 & 3) and Tekken on the PS1. Pokemon on the Gameboy. About a billion games on the PS2. Currently I play on the PS3 and the 360. I enjoy RPG's, Fighting games, shooters, survival horror and Sandbox games.

I currently work in administration at a distance education college and I'm working on completing my undergraduate degree in Business management and Marketing. Upon graduation I hope to work for one of the big gaming companies, such Sony or Capcom. That or become a Dinosaur hunter, depends on the job market.

The first I started this blog so I could engage with like mined people about games. The second reason is a want to create a small portfolio of writing, to demonstrate to potential employers my understanding of their industry.
