Welcome to another About Me Discussion post! Today I'm going to talk about my hobby of playing video games!
I'm not a SUPER avid video game player, but I do enjoy playing them. And my boyfriend and I together pretty much have all the consoles.
We've got an Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Original NES/ Super NES combo console, GameCube, Nintendo 64, Wii U, Gameboy Advance, Nintendo 3DS, and a PSP. Along with about a zillion games for each of these.
(The 3DS is my baby.)
If you can't tell from the two above pictures, I love Yoshi and Zelda. When new consoles come out, I buy them solely for the new Yoshi and Zelda games. Mostly Zelda. Because Zelda = <3.
I have been a huge Zelda fan since I started watching my mom play Ocarina of Time when I was younger, which is, to this day, my favorite video game of all time! I remember how much fun my sister and I would have watching my mom play that game. I think my mom thought we were weird because we would ask her to play so we could watch and she thought that must be boring for us. But apparently we thought it was like watching a movie.
I also remember how my mom had the official game guide for Ocarina of Time and I flipped through that thing over and over and over! I remember having a little notebook and listing all the places, the characters, the villains, everything. I was really weird as a kid.
But after all that watching and game guide reading, I could beat the first boss on the first round of sword slashes. Ghoma never got back to the ceiling on me.
It has only been in the past few years that I actually started beating games that I started playing. Most recently was Wind Waker and Oracle of Ages.
I HATED Oracle of Ages. I cheated through that whole game and on the final boss it seriously took me like two days to beat it. I tried like 15+ times each day and I couldn't do it and I was mere seconds away from throwing that stupid Gameboy against the wall.
I really only play Nintendo games. I don't like the controls on Xbox and I've never played a Playstation before.
I have a bunch of Zelda T-shirts that I like to wear. I was wearing a Wind Waker, stained glass window design t-shirt to work one day and someone at my work asked me if I actually played or if I was just a video game fashionista. Pfffft.
Most recently I've been working on playing Hyrule Warriors. I have almost all of the first Adventure Mode map unlocked! I have three squares left to unlock! I also just started playing Yoshi's Wooly World! It's probably the cutest video game ever! I love it! Oh! And I've been working on Spirit Tracks on my 3DS, but recently had to put it down because I wanted to shake the stupid thing to pieces. For the instrument you get in that game, you have to blow into the microphone to play it and I COULDN'T DO IT AND I WAS SO ANGRY!!!!
Anyway, does anyone else out there like video games? What's your favorite franchise?
