5 Fandom Friday: Games I Love To Play

I am not the biggest gamer....GASP! I know, I know...I try, I really do...but it just isn't my cup o' tea. BUT there is hope - I have a very FEW amount of games that get my time.

1. Pokemon Snap. Probably one, if not, the most favorite game of mine. About once a year I want to dig out the old Nintendo 64 and play the game straight through without stopping. Usually takes a good three hours or so. Totally worth it.

2. Mario Kart. I might be a BIT competitive and Marko Kart {or any game really} brings that out in me {I blame my father! LOL}. Maybe that is why I don't play too many games, I don't like loosing! LOL My go to character?! Peach, always Peach!

3. Mario Party. Another game I don't like to lose at. My family and I have spent hours and days playing this game in all it's incarnations. I am super tempted to get the new Wii JUST to play this game {and the new Mario Kart and Star Fox}. I would be happy JUST playing the mini games by myself all day!

4. Star Fox 64. Another one that I love to go back to and take a day to beat the entire way through. While at the Video Game Awards in Las Vegas this past December it was announced that a NEW Star Fox was coming out and I almost jumped out of my seat with happiness. That new Wii is looking more and more like a must buy!

5. Rock Band. Back when this game first came out I was obsessed! I LOVE singing all the songs...the instruments were meh. NOW that I started guitar lessons, I've gotten back into the game and this time with the guitar. I feel like I'm actually playing the guitar and it is WAY easier than the real guitar. I might practice Rock Band guitar more than the real thing...don't tell my instructor!

I went into this prompt thinking board games, but am happy with my video game choices. These five games have some great memories attached to them. Now to have a weekend marathon playing them all again!

Oh! I have so many great memories from playing my old Nintendo 64 :) I always wanted Pokemon Snap, but got Pokemon Stadium instead which was quite fun as well. Played Mario Kart and Mario Party a lot! :D My first game was Banjo-Kazooie and my favorite game was Zelda Ocarina of Time. Still love Mario and Zelda games :)

Oh, love Mario Kart! I'm absolutely terrible at it, but it's such a fun party game.

My selections went the same way as well! I was hoping to include board games, but then wound up with a whole list of video games:

Wow, you are NOT a true nerd if you don't like video games! No I am just kidding. I hate when people get mad at "nerds" who don't like video games. Growing up my sisters and I only had a Nintendo 64 and all we had was Mario Party, Super Mario and Yoshi's Story. I only played a few computer games then too. Truth is, I don't like video games now a days because they make me feel dizzy! I can't even watch other people play certain games without feeling sick.

I always cheated by playing Base in Rock Band:) It is the easiest and you can pretty much always get the highest score, while looking cool.

Mario Kart never gets old! I used to have The Beatles Rock Band and it was so fun!!

Megan Gotch said...

Shawna! LOL I love all the Mario stuff and it is same with me on the new games. I tried Left For Dead and tho I liked it, it did make me dizzy! xx

I love all of the games you chose! Pokemon Snap is great, did you ever print off photo stickers at Blockbuster?

Yay Rock Band! And the WiiU is really nice! It's a VAST improvement to the Wii (it plays Wii games, so if you have some already, you don't need to buy new ones).
Mario Kart 8 is on my to get list too! I think you can race people online if you swap info ;)
