Day 1 Question: Your 1st Video Game:
My Very First Video Game that I can remember has to be either Tetris, Dr. Mario or Duck Hunt. Tetris is an amazing game of stacking different shaped blocks as they fall on the screen. The goal is to not let your blocks reach the top of your screen (come on you all remember Tetris, Right?).
Dr. Mario was a classic game of matching the colors on the pills to get rid of them. Similar to Tetris, your goal is to not let your falling pills stack up and reach the top of the screen. Now that I think about it, this game was pretty creepy. Dr. Mario is basically an illegal pharmacist mixing medications lol.
Duck Hunt was a game for Super Nintendo in which you, well you shoot ducks. It came with this gnarly orange and gray gun that you would point and shoot at the screen. Tons of fun with Duck Hunt.
Day 2 Question: Your Favorite Character.
It’s funny, the Day 2 question I just answered this morning on the Shameful Narcissist’s blog lol. My favorite video game character of all time would have to be Yoshi! Yoshi was the man! He was green, could turn people into eggs and a great maneuver-er on Mario Kart! I would always select Yoshi if he hadn’t been taken and wreak havoc!!!! I remember playing Mario Party 4 on Gamecube with my brother and his friends. I was the champion always winning in Castaways and the basketball mini games. Every game I would pick Yoshi, my brother would select Toad, his friend would pick Waluigi and my friend would pick Peach. Great times. Some other characters I love are the Arbitor from Halo (He’s AWESOME!) and Baird or Cole Train from Gears of War! I guess it would also depend on the game. If we’re playing street fight Chun-Li is bae and in Mortal Kombat Scorpion or Sonya Blade are my go to’s. Well Cinder was pretty awesome as well. The best thing about being a gamer is that you don’t have to choose your favorites! You can play with all of the characters and still have fun.
Thank you for checking out this second post today. What are your 1st games and favorite characters? Let’s talk gaming!
