30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 7

Day 7 – A Game That Needs To Be Rebooted/Remastered Harvest Moon released on the SNES in 1996. I’m not positive of exactly when I played it, but it must have been a few years after at my cousins’ house. Harvest Moon is one of those games I immediately connected with; it captured my heart and challenged what I thought video games could be. Having to … Continue reading 30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 7

30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 6

Day 6 – Game With Graphics/Art That Still Mesmerizes You I’ve never really played a game with art quite like Persona 5 and was immediately hooked by the style. The palette (featuring reds and black) is both bold and helps to portray the maturity of the game. Characters and settings are intricately designed and even the menus are distinctive in their style. And of course, … Continue reading 30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 6

She had one … Continue reading 30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 5

30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 3

Day 3 – Your Video Game Crush This might be considered cheating a bit as I’m leaning more toward admiration, but I don’t really have a strong video game crush. However cliché it might be, I do really like Lara Croft—the rebooted Lara. Now more than her appearance, she’s an independent yet vulnerable character whom I would like to know IRL. I really enjoy the … Continue reading 30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 3

30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 2

Day 2: Game You Love to Play with Friends I had to think about this one a bit since I mostly play single-player games, but this past fall I tried Everybody’s Golf and was immediately hooked. While most of my play time was spent with one friend in particular, I also got in a few sessions with 3+ people. Everybody’s Golf is goofy yet charming, … Continue reading 30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 2
