Day 21 – Game with the best story.
|I am Cipher Nine|
Special mention goes to Dragon Age: Origins. My opinion on this is now skewed thanks to reading the two prequel books, The Stolen Throne and The Calling, as well as the comic, The Silent Grove, and I am patiently waiting for its sequel, Those Who Speak, but the fact is, I would not have read any of those if I had not fallen in love with the story and characters in the original game. I actually started reading The Stolen Throne specifically because of one character, Loghain Mac Tyr. I wanted to know more about him and what might have caused him to do what he did at Ostagar. I was not disappointed in what I learned, and was further pleased to learn about other important characters in the history of Ferelden.
Day 22 – A game sequel which disappointed you.
Day 23 – Game you think had the best graphics or art style.
Anything involving Final Fantasy is the obvious response for me, but, no matter how striking their imagery is, it is really not new. It is not unique. Valkyria Chronicles, though. Now that’s a beautiful game that embraces simplicity, even beginning and ending its opening with simple lines on paper.
Day 24 – Favorite classic game.
My thoughts always go back to Below the Root which I used to play in grade 6 on the classroom C-64. It was my first RPG, though I didn’t understand that then. The only thing that mattered was pensing the monkeys and the bunnies. I tried reading the book recently, but found it too pedantic.
Day 25 – A game you plan on playing.
The list keeps growing, but in the immediate future are The Witcher, The Darkness II, Jade Empire, Deus Ex, Bioshock … damn Steam sales … and Guild Wars 2 is tempting me, even though I said more more MMOs….
