The Video Game Blog Challenge: Questions 28 & 29

Almost to the finish line!

28. Favorite Game Developer

These are the top three companies that have given me the most enjoyment from games. Square Enix for Final Fantasy of course, but even non FF Square Enix games are usually amazing. Nintendo mainly for Zelda, but also Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. both of which have provided hours of fantastic entertainment for me and my friends. Ubisoft just puts out some really great games – the Assassin’s Creed series, Beyond Good and Evil, the Splinter Cell games, the original Prince of Persia. All great fun, and all games I’ve really liked.

29. A Game I Thought I Wouldn’t Like, But Ended Up Loving

Definitely the original Halo. I remember walking into my brother’s room one day and sitting down to watch him play on his behemoth of an X-Box thinking, This game is so DUMB! Who cares about just shooting aliens?! And then I played it, from the beginning, with my dad. And I fell in love with it. And not because you shoot aliens, but because it had a great story. I fell in love with Master Chief and Cortana’s relationship, with 343 Guilty Spark’s snide comments and wit. It gave life to what is essentially a game where you just shoot aliens. In fact, it’s still one of the only first person shooters I enjoy. Pretty much all the others I’ve tried I end of finding incredibly boring and repetitive. They exist just for people to shoot things (I’m looking at you, Call of Duty). And that just isn’t enough for me.
