Day 18 - Favorite Protagonist

Vyse from Skies of Arcadia is up there. Doesn't get much cooler than a sky pirate, and his personality, design, and moveset always stood out for me.

Always a fan of the old-school silent protagonist as well; Serge (Chrono), Ico, Adol the Red (Ys), and the Demi-fient (SMT: III) to name a few.

Day 17 - Favorite Antagonist

The Illusive Man from Mass Effect has always been my favorite antagonist. So mysterious, I've always enjoyed his personalty, and I really like how he looks in general.

Day 18 - Favorite Protagonist

This is a tie between John S-117 (Master Chief,) and Commander Shepard. I love them both so much I could never pick between them.

Day 19 - What video game world would you live in?

I'd find myself living in Terca Lumireis from Tales of Vesperia. Sure it's infested by monsters, but, it has a lot of neat cities, towns, and glorious sights! <3 Maybe Hyrule is a close second, because, you really can't go wrong with Hyrule. Although, maybe I'd live in the Twilight Princess's version of Hyrule tbh.

Day 19 - What Video Game World Would You Like To Live In

Pokémon (Red/Blue), no earth shattering events would take place (Hoenn and Sinnoh) just some common Pokémon stealing-thugs. A life where I could hang out with the greatest fictional creatures created by man. I wouldn't be a trainer either. I would just like to live with the Pokémon I had caught or had been gifted.

The Pokémon world obviously! There's no other world that appeals to me more, and I would be able to have my dream team come to life. :D

Day 19 - What Video Game World Would You Like To Live In

Same answer as last year's thread: Baten Kaitos. The games are set on floating continents, which are designed quite beautifully. You have towns made out of candy, gold, covered in clouds, and so on. Not to mention every person has wings, which are a manifestation of a person's heart, so they are all uniquely different.

Didn't realize I'd already missed a few days, so I'd better catch up.

Day 17 - Favourite antagonist
Couldn't think of one off the top of my head, but I saw that Element0 said The Illusive Man and I can't disagree. The fact that he looks like and is voiced my Martin Sheen makes him that much better. I also loved GLaDOS from the Portal series, in large part thanks to some of her humor during life or death situations.

Day 18 - Favourite protagonist
Sonic is one that comes to mind right away (again, stemming back from the first game I played). Another that I really enjoyed was Niko Bellic from GTA IV. It definitely wasn't my favorite game in the series, but Niko's character alone made me want to play the game over again.

Day 19 - What video game world would you live in?
Any other game than Pokemon would be the wrong answer in my eyes. I don't even care which of the games I was sent into- just to be able to exist in the same realm as Pokemon themselves would be enough for me.

Day 20 - Do you prefer Consoles, or Handheld video games?
Consoles hands down. If I had to have a list of my top 10 games, I'd wager that 8 or 9 of them would be for console, and the other might be Pokemon. Even though I've owned basically every handheld that Nintendo's made, all I've played on them are the Pokemon games, along with a small handful of others. And when I borrowed my cousin's PSP and figured out how to download games for it, it was a fun experience, but all I could think of was how I'd rather be playing them on a bigger screen.

Console, more power, better graphics, bigger, less childish game selection.

I guess console games would be my pick because of better graphics, etc, but, I wouldn't underestimate the fun that can be brought from the handheld games. The handheld games are really getting better, especially the ones for the 3Ds. However, I'd personally prefer console games.

Always been a console kinda guy. While I do enjoy handhelds, for some reason I leave a ton of games unfinished. Obviously the handheld games pretty much allow for accessibility anywhere, but console games always give a lot better overall experience. The way the handheld gaming is going though, it's not far too off.

Day 21 - Video Game/Series with the best story

Bioshock (the first game, not the series), it was an amazing tapestry of amazing events that provided a balanced set of horror, adventure and mystery and to this day is still my favorite Bioshock game and story.

The Fire Emblem series always have a really nice story line (well aside from a few). Some of the Tales series have great story lines too; especially Tales of Symphonia, Tales of Vesperia, and Tales of Destiny. I really love Twilight Princess's story line too. Again, it's really dark and mystifying!

Halo 3: ODST, money well spent. A dull story line and flat characters. The only thing that interested me about the game was the Forward Unto Dawns 5 second cameo in the introduction.

Day 21 - Video Game/Series with the best story

This is another one that was more difficult than it should've been, thanks to playing too many sports games the last few years. I did enjoy Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 1 & 2's story, in large part thanks to being a big fan of the series in general. Another story which I recall loving was the first Kingdom Hearts. I only played the original (and even then, that was about 10 years ago), but I loved the crossover of all the different franchises to form a really good game.

Day 22 - A video game which disappointed you

In recent memory at least, DC Universe Online. I'd heard from a few different people that it was a really good game, and seeing that it had above average reviews, I went in expecting a great experience. Unfortunately, the most fun I had was creating my own character, with everything after that not really exciting me. After playing for only a couple days, I ended up deleting it from my PS3, which was disappointing after being so hyped to play it.

Hm, remember Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest? Yeah, that was a big disappointment since all of the other Castlevania games were good. :x The game was based on secrets, and, there was that tedious day to night and night to day transition. Ugh.

There was also Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, in which, it was a sequel to the original Tales of Symphonia, but, there was just so many things disappointing with it, like, for one thing you couldn't level up the former Tales of Symphonia members. I really, really think that Emil should of gotten his own human party, instead of just plain monsters that level up. Plus, the whole thing was sort of unbalanced, in a way. You can have Emil do all the fighting, or be perished slowly.

Day 22 - A video game which disappointed you

I haven't really played that many games that I'd deem disappointing, as I usually try out demos, watch gameplay, etc., of stuff before buying it. It has however happened a few times, one which was a pretty expensive mistake. One of the more recent ones was Ratchet and Clank Q-Force. I had never heard of it prior to finding it in a game shop, since I hadn't been following the series since the third game, so when I saw that it featured co-op, I got pretty excited. Well, turned out it wasn't much of what the older Ratchet and Clank was. It's not that it was a bad game, it just strived too far away from what Ratchet and Clank really was, and it made the experience a lot less enjoyable.

Now my biggest disappointment ever in a video game, came from the most recent Dragonball game (I believe. It's starting to get pretty old now :p), Ultimate Tenkaichi. I've always been a pretty big fan of all of them, and really enjoyed Raging Blast, so when UT was announced with its incredible graphics and whatnot, I got really excited. Preordered it for like $500, and man, was that a huge mistake. While it was visually stunning, with great graphics, great animations, etc., the gameplay was just not really enjoyable at all. They took all skill away from the game, and made the battles purely based on luck and fast reactions. I managed to play through the game, but it was certainly not as fun as I'd hoped for, and definitely not worth the money.

Tales of Xillia, if you've seen screenshots of the game. I personally think it's the Tales of Game that has the best graphics. 8)

Marvel vs Capcom 2, I've always adored highly stylized 2D fighting game graphics. So seeing them move so smoothly just makes me enjoy it all the more.

Day 21 - Video Game/Series with the best story

Shadow Hearts: Covenant's story was always fascinating to me. Aside from including actual historical figures (as comrades/villains) in sort of of alternate history, time paradoxes, and visiting towns across Europe/Asia, you get a engaging, tragic, yet hope-filled story that blows your mind with it's ending.

Day 22 - A video game which disappointed you

I know the game has received high praise from reviewers and the casual fan, but personally I could never get into Xenoblade. The MMO aspects of the game are what immediately turned me off, and while I tried pushing through it despite that, I eventually gave up.

Day 23 - Video game that had the most appealing graphics

Always loved Odin Sphere's beautiful 2D graphic style.

Day 20 - Do you prefer Consoles, or Handheld video games?

Consoles, mostly because there is a bigger selection of games.

Day 21 - Video Game/Series with the best story

I would have to say the that the Mass Effect series had the best story imo. (Disregarding the ending to ME3.) At the very least I've always felt the most satisfied with how Mass Effect's story plays out, probably because it can change depending on my actions or something like that. o3o

Day 22 - A video game which disappointed you

I know I shouldn't judge a game before I even finish it, but when I had rented Gears of War: Judgement, the campaign felt very...dry. I may have a different opinion if I rent it again and finish the campaign, but this is how I felt about it when I played it.

Day 23 - Video game that had the most appealing graphics

Hmm, I really liked the graphics in Mass Effect 3, everything looked nice and clean and just plain ol' aesthetically appealing in my eyes. (Plus, everything had an unexplainable 'blue' feel to it, which is cool since I like blue.)

One game that always blows my mind at how well they're done graphically are those in the Tiger Woods series (with the most being Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14). At first glance, you can easily mistake it for watching golf on TV- that's how much detail went into it.

Another game that really impressed me was L.A. Noire, at least for its facial graphics. Although I played very little of the game itself, the faces in the game were so well done that it was almost uncanny in the resemblance they had to their real-life counterparts.

It was a cartage combo of Super Mario Bros. and a Video Game called Ice Hockey for the NES. I remember playing it with my father; it was the first time we bonded. :3

Not certain since it was way long ago. I keep telling myself it was either Super Mario Bros. for the NES or Paper Boy for the same console. Super Mario World is the first game I clearly remember really get into though, but I don't believe it was my first.

I'm not sure, but I think it was Super Mario for the Game Boy. It's definitely the first one I remember playing.
