Anime Challenge Day 20: What video game would make a great anime?

Anime Challenge Day 20: What video game would make a great anime?

This question is even harder than the one yesterday. I didn’t actually have an answer prepared for this one at all, but I recently got a new game (which seldom happens as I’ve insanely busy until our wedding in October). It got me thinking… how would this game pan out as anime? Would I personally watch it? I decided the answer was yes, of course, for God of War.

VGC Day 22: What game were you so enraptured by that you beat it extremely quickly?

VGC Day 22: What game were you so enraptured by that you beat it extremely quickly?

If you recall Day 12, I talked about why I went with a PS4 and how it was all for one video game: God of War III.

God of War already had me hooked with its predecessors. I love Greek mythology. I love the game’s take on it. I love Kratos as a character. I love the combat system. It’s simple, easy to pick up, and so much fun. I love the moody classical musical that ties this game up into a neat little bow. It is truly a pleasure to play.

God of War III sucked me in with those amazing graphics which were stellar for the time and PlayStation 3. Kratos just looked phenomenal. The enemies seemed larger than life and were nothing I had experienced before. The puzzles were well-crafted and enjoyable. There were also new weapons to try out that had some unique powers which I was excited for.

I could not put this game down until I finished it. I felt breathless, my heart pounding all the way up until the very end. Then the game literally took my breath away with its ending. It’s been awhile since I have felt that way about a game if I’m being honest here. I really should make the time to pick this gem back up for a round 2.

VGC Day 12: What is your gaming system of choice?

VGC Day 12: What is your gaming system of choice?

This one is really easy to answer. You’ll know from Day 1 my first system was a PlayStation 1. Eventually, as a family gift for Christmas one year, we got a PlayStation 2. I don’t know my parents’ reasons for going with PlayStation, but when the PS3 was out I knew I had a decision to make between it and the Xbox.

The deciding factor was a video game. That video game was God of War III. I had played GoW and GoW II on the family PS2. Then the stars aligned and I was given a PSP for Christmas (Notice the pattern? Video games = Christmas!). GoW: Chains of Olympus was one of the first games I played on it.

When GoW III was set to be released only on PS3, my decision was made. Using my own money from my job at a gas station, I bought a PS3. I’ve always been pretty late to the party on getting new gaming systems. Two Christmases ago I treated myself to a new PS4.

It’s always been PlayStation. Unless something dramatically changes, it will always be PlayStation.
