As we all know, I am a bit of a Zelda fan, and have been for quite some time. It all began in 1992 (which is a longer time ago than I care to admit at this point!), when my dad bought A Link to The Past, but got annoyed with it and switched it off permanently. I was four years old at this point, and I started to play when he did this. However, what really hooked me in was Ocarina of Time, when my dad gave up (again!) at a particular point, my 10 year old self was introduced to the Water Temple. Instant love, despite it being that particular temple, and it steamrollered from there.
I was first introduced to Conker's Bad Fur Day a year ago by my gaming-enthusiastic boyfriend, Nigel. When he first described the game to me I thought he can't be serious?! Surely there is not really a game like this! So, out came the game; he was correct, and I found myself thoroughly enjoying the game.
The Ultima series has long since been around, but the first Ultima game I played was Ulima VI. It was originally released by Origin Systems Inc in 1990. It's also the third and final game in the "Age of Enlightenment" trilogy. Ultima VI was then adapted from PC platforms to the SNES in 1993, which is when I stumbled across it.
Nintendo has been competing with itself since they started their journey in the gaming industry. In the last five years, Nintendo has tried to come out with a completely new type of gaming technique that is different from all competitors. Nintendo is known for bringing new and fresh gaming methods to people all over the world. Due to the constant innovation of Nintendo, they are getting more and more popular with time. Nintendo changed the gaming dynamics yet again by delivering to us Nintendo Switch, which is a mixture of a traditional home gaming experience as well as a console gaming experience. As the Nintendo Switch gives both types of user experience to us, there are multiple ways of using the Nintendo Switch.
The Generation VIIPokemon Games marked the first time that I didn't invest any money in an upper version of a Pokemon, and there's a reason for that. For many years, many people have been wishing for new Pokemon games that offered new story lines, and a different task than the eight badges and then the Elite Four. I, for one, have never had a problem with the same story line. It guaranteed a great game every time, which is exactly why I kept buying Pokemon games. I liked the simplicity of them. How I always knew exactly what I was getting into when I purchased the game from the store.
One of me favourite game consoles of all time has to be the Super Nintendo. I remember many a night wasting hours at a time playing the console affectionately remembered as the SNES. Unfortunately, back then games weren't as cheap and could go for as much as 55 quid a pop in the UK. Fortunately, I was a child at the time which meant my parents were footing the bill, but it just goes to show how lucrative the video games business can be. My favourite game for the console has to be Rare's Donkey Kong Country where you played a gorilla trying to get back his banana hoard. It was a massively long platform game, which was challenging for a young audience. I was about age eight at the time I first played it, but tried it recently and struggled. I think I was actually better at platform games when I was younger, but a challenge is always the sign of a good game.
