    In Defense of 'Pokémon' Genwunners

    In Defense of 'Pokémon' Genwunners

    As described by Know Your Meme, "Genwunner is a pejorative term used within the Pokémon fandom to describe those who only appreciate the first-generation of video games for Game Boy, namely Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow, and tend to bash the sequel titles and monsters in the franchise." Under this definition, I wouldn't be a genwunner because even though I think the first generation of Pokémon is the best, I still have an appreciation for the other games. However, even though I haven't drawn the ire of the Pokémon fandom I disagree, with the notion that it is unreasonable to prefer the first-generation over the others.

    You've Met With A Terrible Fate, Haven't You?

    You've Met With A Terrible Fate, Haven't You?

    I was four years old, and my aunt and uncle gave me socks and underwear for my birthday. I sat on the steps and sulked. How could the two people I idolized most give me socks and underwear?! They sat there deadly serious as I felt the tears well up in my eyes, and made no move to stop me as I took off to sit on the steps and silently lament this ultimate betrayal. They then brought out their real gift to me -- a Super Nintendo. I didn’t realize it then; but they had given me an escape from the endless fights between my parents.

    Smash Bros. already has a playable gay character

    Minecraft’s Steve was added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate through DLC recently and, although I have yet to get a chance to play as him, Steve seems incredibly fun and unique from what I’ve seen of his gameplay.

    What Happened to the 'Mega Man' Series?

    What Happened to the 'Mega Man' Series?

    With its long history and many games, the Mega Man series may at first appear to be a wildly successful franchise up there with Mario and Sonic. However, this isn't true of the Mega Man series as a whole with, only a few games selling more than one million copies worldwide. This fact made me wonder how the Mega Man series could be so well known but rarely be the success we would expect from a long-running franchise.

    Why are 'Marvel vs. Capcom 2' and 'Super Smash Bros. Melee' Still Alive Today?

    Why are 'Marvel vs. Capcom 2' and 'Super Smash Bros. Melee' Still Alive Today?

    An early 2000s cross-over fighting game that is the second installment in a long-running series, very technically demanding, and has a meta-game dominated by a few top tier characters. Given that description, what fighting game comes to mind? If you answered Marvel vs. Capcom 2 or Super Smash Bros. Melee, you would be partly correct because I was thinking of both. At first glance, these fighting games don't appear to have a lot in common, but upon further inspection, they have quite a few similarities. The most significant commonality being the survival of both their competitive scenes more than a decade after their original release.

    More to come: Animal Crossing New Horizons

    This is going to be a long one. Am I beating a dead horse of a topic? There is much to say because the game itself isn't exactly complete and for this article to stand the test of time, I had to go in deep. The game is now at version 1.4 and we have had some tweaks and additions to satisfy the people. As mentioned in my previous articles, this is strictly my own opinion and it's your game (you do you).

    Nintendo Switch Pro & Why Nintendo needs a powerful console. Nintendo Switch Pro Circulating since 2018, rumors suggest Nintendo is working on a new more powerful Switch.
