Day 1 - Your very first video game.
DON'T JUDGE ME. We didn't actually have an Atari (we had a ColecoVision), but I distinctly remember this being one of the very first games I ever played. Someone in our family had an Atari and I wish I could remember who. I loved this stupid game before I got old enough to rage at puzzle games. I honestly can't remember much about the game itself, just that it was one of the first for me. :'|
Day 2 - Your favorite character.
(Square Enix: Final Fantasy IX | console: playstation)
FF:IX was the third Final Fantasy I played (after VII and VIII), and Zidane was a wonderful break from the stoic, quiet protagonists everyone else seemed to love in the FF fandom. He's high energy, he's fun, he's light-hearted despite his circumstances. And I really loved his development throughout the game's progress. Despite his womanizing, he does have a strong sense of right and wrong and wanting to help people. I JUST. Really, really adore him.
Day 3 - An underrated game.
(console: xbox / pc / playstation 2)
THIS GAME, I SWEAR. It's definitely an under the radar type game. The people who know of it love it, otherwise you've probably never heard of it. The actual game design takes some getting used to, but it fits the story and characters wonderfully. The voice acting is great (Richard Horvitz in a role where he's not screaming, finally). The gameplay is easy to get the hang of with a little bit of practice. The dialogue script in this game is one of the best selling points, to be honest. I laugh so hard every time I play it because of the dialogue; it's a bit morbid in its humor at times, but I love it.
It's a discontinued game, so you probably won't find it anywhere unless you very luckily find it used somewhere. I'd just as soon suggest watching a playthrough on youtube if you're interested. Highly recommended.
Day 4 - Your guilty pleasure game.
(console: nintendo DS)
THIS STUPID GAME LMFAOJFALKSDJF I just-- Love the music okay. I can sit and play this game for hours and hours when I'm bored enough. It's fun and mindless and the music's catchy as hell.
Day 5 - Game character you feel you are most like (or wish you were).
(Square Enix: The World Ends With You | console: nintendo DS)
I can only answer this by quoting Katu.
Katu: I FOR ONE think you're a lot like Beat |D
Katu: OR NEKU
Katu: Actually you are more like Neku
Katu: you're neku
Katu: Neku: Quiet, reserved, tends to shut people out BUT is a really fantastic guy with his heart in the right place when you get down to it
Katu: also he's sarcastic
So there you have it. :'|
Day 6 - Most annoying character.
(Sony: Legend of Dragoon | console: playstation)
Shamelessly, I hate Shana. I always think she's cute at first until I get further into the game and realize how dramatic she is and what a Sue she becomes with the help of everyone around her. It also always really bothered me how IMPORTANT!!!1! she is but how low her attacks can be (for example: Dart and Lavitz can both do about 150 damage halfway through the first disc, while Shana MIGHT do 60-75 damage). I also tend to dislike any character that's fixated on romance as much as she is; at least a third of her entire game dialogue is talking about how much she loves Dart and she's grown up and he should see that and love her! The other two thirds are about how not useless she is!! and the rest is her overdramatic scenes. I find her character very grating and just.... flat in comparison to the rest of the Dragoon cast.
Day 7 - Favorite game couple.
(Square Enix: Final Fantasy IX | console: playstation)
These two had me sold at their first real conversation on Tantalus' ship.Garnet: I have a favor I wish to ask of you... Please take me with you.
Zidane: ... All right, then. I shall hereby do my best to kidnap you.
I JUST. REALLY ADORE THEM. A self-willed princess and a womanizer out to stop a war and eventually save the world? They're fun and cute and they had some of the best development in the FF series, I think. I can't even really coherently talk about how much I love them together fjaklsjf
Day 8 - Best soundtrack.
(console: Nintendo DS)
I really really really love this soundtrack, I can listen to any of the songs any time and not relate it directly to the game. I think that says a lot, don't you? It's just a really kicking soundtrack, give it a listen to sometime outside of the gameplay.
Day 9 - Saddest game scene. SPOILER ALERT?!
The first minute is the scene in question. I JUST. REGAL. Mind you, all of the characters' sacrifice scenes were pretty sad but Regal's my favorite and HE JUST. REALLY WANTS TO GO TO ALICIA ON THE OTHER SIDE. And that breaks my heart, that that's what he's thinking about. AND HE CAN'T BECAUSE LLOYD MADE HIM PROMISE TO NOT DIE, DAMNIT.
Day 10 - Best gameplay.
I really enjoy playing this game with two other people if I can? But it's got a good fighting system that's easy to get the hang of and the controls are relatively the same for every character, despite weapon and ability differences. You can button-mash if you don't know your way around combos, or you can combo the hell out of it if that's your thing. It works well for just about any level gamer.
