A Geeky Gal was tagged for the original T.A.P. Tag by Winter Reverie awhile back which you can find here! Thanks again Winter for the tag. It’s very much appreciated! The premise of the original tag is tanka for three anime. This geeky twist will feature three video games instead!

Ellie at Not-So-Modern Girl tagged me in this super neat Literary Dinner Party Tag awhile back and I finally wanted to tackle it in true Geeky Gal style! I’m twisting this tag a bit so that instead of inviting literary characters to a dinner party, I am going to invite video game characters!

An action RPG has done the impossible: marrying Disney and Final Fantasy. Being a huge Disney fan, and just getting my feet wet with Final Fantasy, I was super interested in picking up this game. The tale of Kingdom Hearts is a wholesome one, though a bit complicated. Simply put, it’s the “story of Light overcoming Darkness with the power of Friendship.” — A Geeky Gal (Video Game Challenge Day 28)

A Link Between Worlds was my very first ever Legend of Zelda game. I know, I know. I definitely don’t live under a rock, and I definitely know it exists. Before you pick up your pitchforks, rest assured that I was given some lovely recommendations for my very first time.
With the release of Breath of the Wild and all of the amazing reviews pouring out for it, I thought it was finally time to really see what all the fuss was about. I asked my good friend Matt over at Normal Happenings (as he is the biggest Zelda fan I know) what game he would suggest starting with. He said A Link Between Worlds for the Nintendo 3DS.
If this seems a little familiar, it’s because I featured this game on Normal Happenings’ Hyrule: See the Sights! Hear the Sounds! which is a huge and amazing blogger collaboration. You should totally check it out to see all of The Legend of Zelda games that were featured. Go for the stories; stay for the incredible music. (And try out some of the recipes.)

If you’ve been reading every day since I first set out on this 30 Day Video Game Challenge, it’s no secret that I don’t enjoy shooters. They’re just not for me. So of course Fallout was not the game for me. Or so I thought.
I was talked into trying Fallout: New Vegas by my husband (then long distance boyfriend) years after it had come out. I had low expectations of this game. Sure, I loved Skyrim by Bethesda, but sneaking around with my bow was so different from running through the desert with a gun. I was so wrong.
The first thing we did was mod the hell out New Vegas on my computer. I let Alec pick several mods for me to download first and then I went after aesthetic mods. I love character modeling so I made sure to get lots of hair, faces, and other character-related mods. Then I tackled a few environment mods and loaded them all up on my little lap top.
It was a lot of fun playing New Vegas. I essentially let my companions take on the violence while I ran around questing and talking to everyone. If I did had to fight, I tried to use melee means to get things done. The VATS system was extremely helpful as I can’t aim for anything.
I wouldn’t call myself “converted” but New Vegas was a step towards First Person Shooters for me. Maybe I’ll be more open to giving them a try.
