Game: Okami Year: 2006 Developer: Clover Studio Platforms: Playstation 2, Wii I don’t really mind realistic games.  They can be fun, compelling and thoughtful but in the end (if they are any good at being realistic) they all end up looking basically the same.  If you’ve seen one dirty brown wasteland or overgrown jungle you’ve… Read More »

Comments Off on Generations Past: Persona 3

Game: Persona 3 Year: 2007 Developer: Atlas Platforms: Playstation 2, PSP I actually debated whether or not this game should be included in the Generations Past series for a while.  While it was originally released for a previous generation console (the Playstation 2) it was still well into the age of the current generation of… Read More »

Comments Off on Generations Past: Silent Hill 2

Game: Silent Hill 2 Year:  2001 Developer: Konami Platforms: Playstation 2, Xbox, PC I have never cared for horror movies.  They’ve just never appealed to me.  It’s odd, though, that I sometimes find myself fascinated by survival horror video games.  Maybe it is the interactivity or the extra time afforded to story or the use… Read More »

Game: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker Year: 2003 Developer: Nintendo Platform: Nintendo Gamecube Like many gamers of my generation, the Legend of Zelda series is held in high esteem for me.  I cut my teeth on Super Mario and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the NES but it wasn’t until I got a… Read More »

Game: Chrono Trigger Year: 1995 Developer: Squaresoft Platforms: Super Nintendo, Playstation One, Nintendo DS I’ve always had a bit of a mixed relationship with Squaresoft (and later Square Enix).  I’ve tried my hand at several of the Final Fantasy games but prematurely quit all but one of them and my one foray into Dragon Quest… Read More »

Game: Metal Gear Solid Year: 1998 Developer: Konami Computer Entertainment Japan Platforms: Playstation One, Playstation Network, PC Metal Gear Solid is a series that I ended up approaching sort of sideways.  I avoided the franchise for quite some time simply because I believed myself no good at stealth games.  Eventually I caved, though, and picked… Read More »

Comments Off on Generations Past: Beyond Good and Evil

Game: Beyond Good and Evil Year: 2003 Developer: Ubisoft Montpellier Platforms: Playstation 2, Xbox, Gamecube, PC I am not typically an impulse buyer. In fact I tend to agonize for days or weeks over even relatively minor purchases (I’m probably not the most fun person to shop with). The one common expectation to this, though,… Read More »
