The Art of Gaming Intellectually

In Case You Missed It

Despite how many times he insults me, I’m almost positive that a certain bearded  co-worker actually likes me because he supplied me with a Playstation 2 complete with Nerf controller. I will be repaying him soon with beers. If SNES and Sega Genesis were the consoles of my childhood, the PS2 epitomized my adolescence. I’m I proceeded to spend all of the trade credit I’ve amassed at a local used media store and got some classics as well as some games that slipped past my radar. Here’s a few that I didn’t get the first time around:

Space Channel 5

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

King of Fighters: XII

Kingdom Hearts

Psychonauts

First of all, I’m so happy to have a used console with one of the largest libraries of stellar games – especially those that I’d never played before. I’m thoroughly enjoying Kingdom Hearts as it’s so poignant yet extremely simplistic. Psychonauts has strikingly adult subject matter as seen through the eyes of kids with psychic abilities at summer camp. Space Channel 5 is probably the weirdest of the bunch – a rhythm game about aliens invading and forcing people to dance – but is still highly enjoyable for such a silly game. All in all, I expanded my library for relatively cheap and have a few long gaming sessions to look forward to with each game.

What are some games you neglected to play until years after they were released?

  1. You should also play this awesome game entitled Try to Remove the Sole of My Boot from Your Shattered Jaw and Good Luck Finding a Halfway Decent Dentist Who’ll Fix Your Mangled Mandible for Less Than 75K Because Even the Dental Industry Hates You.

    I’m even willing to give you my copy of the expansion pack: I Put Yellowjacket Eggs Inside Your Brain So They’ll Sting Their Way Out Through Your Eyeballs. It’s pretty epic.
