Lets remind ourselves of not only why we love gaming, but why it can be good for us.
We’ll be posting and linking things like the one above (source: http://visual.ly/gaming-good-you) here, and on our Twitter, Facebook & Website.
And you can share your questions and stories with us by dropping us an Ask.
Merry Gaming :)
Me and my sibilings are homeschooled, and you know what taught my little brother to read/ write? Minecraft. He plays on servers and had to learn how to talk to people on the chats
The combat system and the graphics are pretty darn bad in Summoner, but it’s still one of my most favorite games because the story, characters, and music were just so brilliant to me. Maybe you can consider it a guilty pleasure.
I think I speak for everyone in the Rule of Rose fandom when I say that as we got older, the scariness factor of boss!Clara really lowered for us, especially when she spoke. “Hi-yah!”
Still got nothing on those imps though.
If “Guitar Hero: Crush 40 (feat. Cash Cash)” happens, I would get something that would get me back into the franchise again!
“Frogger: He’s Back” and “Pac Man World: 20th Anniversary” are my childhood games, and I shall make my kids play them, too, instead of that COD and Halo stuff nowadays!
I think my favorite thing about The Legend of Zelda series is how awesome their storylines are. All of my Zelda games have had many replays because I feel like each time I play them I’m re-reading a favorite book or re-watching a favorite movie all over again. The difficulty of the games rarely has impressed me, but the stories and music will never get old and will never cease to bring joy to my soul, and that is why they will always be among my favorite video games.
GUESS THAT GAMING SONG.
LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY (OUT OF 10): 5
I really miss the old games I used to play on my Nokia phone (Darkest Fear, Wolfmoon, Might and Magic, Fantasy warrior II…). They have been my first approach to videogames and I’m so sad I’m probably the only one who knows them.
Videogames made me lose all my friends. They didn’t like them, yet I loved them, and our different interests drove us apart and now I never see them again. Yet, I still believe videogames were the right choice. They’ve helped me overcome fears, they’ve helped me calm down when I’m angry, they’ve helped me see the brighter side of life—all while I’m having tons of fun. Videogames are my friends.
Video games have been a huge part of my life since I was 7 years old. I’m now 17. I’d love to design a small game myself one day, if I didn’t find it almost impossible to learn scripting.
