This week sees six angry alpha nerds surrounded by Wii Motes and snack packets, listening to the sounds of marsy killing stuff in Hyrule Warriors. As a result, thoughts have turned to favourite video games, as well as sleep.
wildfillysama: My favourite old video games are torn between two candidates: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. Skateboarding dragons are generally excellent. Running from the left hand side of the screen to the right is a winning strategy, though Metropolis ruins this. Stupid Metropolis.
EbolaBooze: I was one of the chosen few to start my gaming career as part of the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race, so my first (and favourite) childhood games were StarCraft and Total Annihilation. Throwing battlegroups of hundreds of units into the meatgrinder as a distraction for a combined arms pincer manoeuvre was probably my favourite tactic.
lorekai: Picking a favourite old video game is a very difficult task, as there are so many to choose from, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is of course a strong contender, earning large numbers of sentimentality points for being my first game, as well as being awesome. The original Pokemon games do of course get a mention, but I think my favourite at least somewhat childhood game would be the Golden Sun and it’s sequel, as they were the games that genuinely got me interested in gaming.
anit the Flea: My most cherished childhood game is the one that I first picked up a controller for – Snowboard Kids! I always favoured Nancy and even now in any kind of racing game I will focus on superior manoeuverability. Pokemon doesn’t really count as a childhood game for me as I started playing in my tweens and I still do…
marsy: Can’t post. Playing Hyrule Warriors.
