30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 13

Day 13 – Favorite Video Game Villain Far Cry 3‘s Vaas is, for me, the most memorable villain in the franchise. He’s a pirate lord. He’s volatile. And he’s intriguing. He’s more emotive than Far Cry 2‘s Jackal and more haunting than Far Cry 4‘s Pagan Min. On the surface, he appears to be psychotic—known for his definition of insanity. However, by the end of the game, players … Continue reading 30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 13

Day 12 – A Game You Hope Gets the Virtual Reality Treatment Firewatch by Campo Santo is easily one of my favorite indie games, and I think it would make for an awesome VR experience. Firewatch is already such an immersive game with its carefully crafted characters, excellent dialogue/voice acting, and mysterious setting—I can imagine being drawn into the narrative and world even more through VR. … Continue reading 30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 12

My grandmother also passed away that fall—her … Continue reading 30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 11

Day 10 – Game that Made You Pee Your Pixel Pants You might not know this about me, but I find scary games, well, absolutely terrifying.

The game that probably unnerved me the most is Resident Evil 7: VR. Of course … Continue reading 30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 10

Day 9: Favorite Handheld/Mobile Game Unlike some of the previous categories, this one was much easier to answer. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is one of my top games period, so it is easily my favorite handheld game. I played it on a well-worn and scratched Game Boy that technically belonged to one of my brothers. There was something about the tone … Continue reading 30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 9

Day 8 – Your Earliest Gaming Memory I had to really think about this one, and I’m still not certain about my answer. Was my earliest game Dr. Mario? Harvest Moon? Should I count Solitaire? In all seriousness, I think that Frogger and Centipede place in my earliest gaming memories. I can remember sitting in the living room, sometimes on the couch and sometimes on … Continue reading 30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 8
