Day 1: Who is your childhood Video Game Hero?
My video game hero is Nancy Neil from Snowboard Kids and Snowboard Kids 2!
Snowboard Kids is a snowboard racing game that debuted on Nintendo 64, where you select your character, costume and race through really cool maps. I’ve never been the best at speed, but I have always loved performing in the trick portion of the game. Nancy was always my choice and upon reading the Snowboard Kids Story, she became a character that I could relate too. While Nancy was really skilled at tricks, she was always the nice mediator of the group that everyone loved. Nancy was friends with one of the meanest characters in the game, a snob name Linda, but she was there to orchestrate and attend Linda’s birthday party.
Snowboard Kids 2 was the very first game that was mine entirely (and not for me AND my brother) which holds a special place in my heart. In Snowboard kids 2, an alien, evil child known as Damien appears. The kids have to race Damien in the story and while he is the antagonist, Nancy tries to extend the olive branch and invite Damien to the group. She’s such a great character and I have looked up to her for her tricks, personality and all that Nancy represents. To sum up her personality Nancy is fun, genuine and friendly, traits that I think my friends would now describe me as. Thank you Snowboard Kids and Snowboard Kids 2 for having such a positive impact!
There’s a more teenage version of Snowboards Kids called SBK where Nancy is completely the opposite. She is spoiled, stuck up and conceited. I’m super happy that I grew up admiring the 10 year old Nancy!
