Who here has pre-ordered the Nintendo Switch! This girl has!! :DDDD
Who else is excited Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild scored an Edge 10 or knows what that means?
This forum is full of nerds. I expect a bunch of you to be anime-watching, manga/comics-reading, videogame-playing folks who are too shy about your hobbies to say much… what folly!
Anyway, I have a long history with videogames even though I am not very much a player these days (I tend to just read about them more and the industry in general on forums now… haha… ). My first system with my brother was the Turbo Graphix 16 (my cousin had a NES then Genesis, so I guess we skipped that for this winner… lol). My favourite co-op game with him being Chew-Man Fu! (This was my fanart lol)
Then came the SNES and my brother and I really got into RPGs and started becoming Nintendo fans in general, (Gameboys, Nintendo 64, Gamecube, DSs, Wii, Wii U, etc. – Also bought PS2 and have gaming-capable computers that we continually upgrade every couple of so years) A lot of money!! Did I mention… I don’t even play games that much anymore?? I just happen to keep buying them anyway. It’s a problem. I figure one day I’ll be able to relax on a month+ vacation and try to catch up on some of this stuff.
I am a lone gamer unless it’s local co-op with my sibs, so I don’t get involved in any games that require online cooperation or subscriptions. And nothing that requires too many reflexes (no to FPSs, most racers, action games). I enjoy my turn-based or slower-paced strategy type of games like jRPGS, cRPGs, Civilization (when it was still viable… EA really screwed up badly lol)
My husband, much more an active gamer, likes all the stuff I am not that into, like puzzlers, FPSs, cinematic adventure games… much more an Xbox and Playstation kind of guy.
My favourite videogame series, by the way, is Fire Emblem. They are trying to have a stint in the mobile/phone realm, which I am adverse to, but if you want to try a simplified cute version of the game, you can download it free to play…
So what about you guys? What games are you into if any? Or was all this a foreign language to you? lol
