The Well-Red Mage asks: “What’s your favorite game every year you’ve been alive?” I’m one of the last to answer, because I’m always late to these types of parties. I’ve seen plenty of “Favorite Game” posts, but never one quite like this, and it was both challenging and enjoying to put together over the last two months. I’m one of the oldest people to respond, meaning I have quite a lot of years to go through, so without further ado…
1980 – Pac-Man
This one was more difficult than I’d like to admit, but there weren’t too many games I could draw from at this point in time, which led me to this classic among classics. I wasn’t very good at this game, but if you stick your finger in your ear and wiggle it around, I think you’ll hear something familiar 😀
1981 – Donkey Kong
Back when Mario was merely Jump Man and Pauline was a kidnapping victim, long before she was the mayor of New Donk City, there was this arcade classic. I was better at this than Pac-Man; I’ve always been better at platforming than avoiding random enemies.
