Day 13 - A Video game that you don't own anymore, but wish to play again someday

I had quite a good number of PS2 games that I really loved, but didn't hold on to when my PS2 died. Among those off the top of my head that I'd love to play again are some of the old WWE Smackdown games (specifically 4 and 5), ESPN NHL 2K6 (included some of the best mini-games in a sports game) and Tony Hawk's Underground. I would've included some old Sega/Game Boy games, but at least emulators are a thing now.

Day 14 - Your best accomplishments in any video game

I've got three that I think are my best accomplishments in different respects.

The first is getting Platinum Trophies for 5 different games on the PS3 (all sports games- no surprise there). The second was being ranked in the top 100 in the world all-time for online shootouts on NHL 10 by the time EA permanently shut down the servers.

The last one (which you could argue is an accomplishment depending on how you look at it) is that any time you're racing the computer on the top difficulty on SSX, it was actually one of my runs. Like I said, maybe not so much an accomplishment, but having my runs selected over hundreds of others' that tested the game was pretty cool to me.

    Day 14 - Your best accomplishments in any video game

    Well, for one, I've got 3 stars on my profile in Mario Kart DS, which it took a really, really long time for me to get, because some of those missions are easy to complete, but hard to get 3 stars because of the time constraints. XD

    I've also managed to officially beat 100% of Tales of Vesperia. there were a lot of sidequests, battles, and crazy items to get, but, all that paid off to get this achievement!

    Forgot about this :@

    Day 08 - Best soundtrack(s) in a video game

    Katamari Damacy, Pokemon Emerald and Sonic Heroes.

    Day 09 - Best ending in a video game

    Most of the games I play have no set ending, but I will say that the endings to the first two Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games are pretty great for a Pokemon title.

    Day 10 - What consoles do you own?
    • GBA (1 Black, 1 Pearl Pink)
    • 2 DS Lite (both with broken hinges)
    • 1 3DS
    • 1 Wii U
    • 1 PSP
    • 1 Nexus 7 (what? It works very well with a USB gamepad attached to it)

    Day 11 - What video game are you looking forward to purchasing?

    I'm looking forward to purchasing Pokemon Y and a used copy of The World Ends With You soon.

    Day 12 - What video game-related merchandise do you own?

    I have lots of Pokemon figurines and lots of video-game related posters I get from magazines.

    Day 13 - A Video game that you don't own anymore, but wish to play again someday

    I would really like to find a copy of The World Ends With You (as previously stated above) as I've only played in on a friend's DS.

    Day 14 - Your best accomplishments in any video game

    I once made a roller coaster with a Extreme excitement rating in RCT2 once!

      Not a whole lot, but I do have some video game posters, a couple of Pokemon keychains, some Pokemon stickers, a shoebox filled with Pokemon cards, and maybe some other stuff I can't think of at the moment.

      Day 13 - A Video game that you don't own anymore, but wish to play again someday

      One of the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games, I haven't completed any of them since Blue Rescue Team. >_<

      Day 14 - Your best accomplishments in any video game

      Uuuhh, I'm not really sure about this. Probably back in Leafgreen when I was facing Lance of the Elite Four, all I had left has my underleveled Gengar and Lance's remaining Pokemon was Gyrados. Gyrados kept on spamming Hydro Pump, but thankfully it missed until it ran out of PP for it. I think its only remaining damage-dealing move was Earthquake, since Gengar had Levitate, he was safe from further harm. I just Shadow Ball'd Gyrados until victory. I still have that same Gengar in my White 2. :3

      Nothing noteworthy for me. Never been one who guns for a high score or goes for 100% completion either. There might be something, but nothing really comes to mind.

      The only one I can think of right now is earning the maximum amount of money in Luigi's Mansion which is 142,390,000G. There was a lot of saving and resetting the game to achieve that perfect score. This is something I will never do again because there is no extra things earned for getting all of the money.

        Nintendo, pretty much! Their games are what I grew up with, with their consoles like the NES, the N64, the Gameboy, the Gamecube, and so on! I really love the stuff that they dish out, and I can't wait to see them at this year's E3.

          My absolute favorite has to be Bungie, seeing as I've been a Halo fan for as long as I can remember. (Also Destiny looks cool. o3o) My second favorite is definitely Nintendo. :D

          Day 15 - Favorite video game company

          Hm, I have a lot that I like, but not one sure-fire favorite. Konami is somewhere near the top for a lot of good franchises like Suikoden, Metal Gear, Silent Hill (1-4), Zone of the Enders and so on. Atlus is a good one too, not just for development, but for localizing and publishing numerous JRPGs. Of course, I'll always have place in my heart for Capcom (despite their DLC practices), Nintendo, and Sega as well.

          Working Designs was a former publisher that localized a ton of RPGs for a number of years. Sad when they closed down back in 05' since they usually took liberties with the dialogue and always found it pretty entertaining. Always been a favorite.

            Pokemon X

            Day 12 - What video game-related merchandise do you own?
            I own a promotional poster for Dragon Quest IX, and a Sonic Action Figure.

            Day 13 - A Video game that you don't own anymore, but wish to play again someday


            IAlot of my Xbox 360 titles that I had to part with after my Xbox finally died after limping for a while. Some of the more notable ones being Final Fantasy XIII and Halo 4, but there are almost far too many to list. I also sold a copy of Final Fantasy V for the GBA and ever since I've basically been itching to play it.

            Day 14 - Your best accomplishments in any video game

            It isn't much, but I've beaten Bastion with every Idol active.

            Day 15- What is your favourite Video Game Company?


            Sega, Capcom, Rare, and Square Enix will always have a place in my heart, although recently their game quality and buisness practices have turned me off to them. I will be a lifelong Nintendo nerd. (kinda a given). I've always enjoyed many of the games released by Bungie, Team Ninja, Level 5, and Platinum. Game Freak also gets a special mention

              LJN, I suppose. I mean, they were the company that managed to create the most video game adaptations from movies, but, their games were just plain awful. If you've played their games for the NES, you'd probably reach the same conclusion.

              Day 15 - Favourite video game company

              My favorite would be Nintendo. I know, a very unoriginal opinion, but they basically saved video games in the USA and made some the best games ever made. Capcom, Squeenix, Rare and Bizzare Creations get special mentions.

              Day 16 - Least favourite video game company

              Activison's games were always rather ovverated in my opinion, plus most of their games just seem boring to me or have copious dlc (something which Capcom is gulity of, but not to their degree)

              EA is even worse in my opinion, releases games which you literally cannot play, ignoring important and great consoles such as the Dreamcast and the Wii U and just being the first company to be named worst company in the US 2 times in a row.

              Maybe Rare? I mean, nothing immediately comes to mind. They released a ton of great games during the 90's, but after selling themselves to Microsoft, they've never been quite the same. (Who remembers the now ill-fated Donkey Kong Racing being canceled because of this?) What have the done recently? A couple of games for the Kinect...

              Day 15 - Favourite video game company

              I'm really not someone that prefers certain companies to others, but I might have to say that Game Freak is one of my favorites. Sure, I may have only played their Pokemon games and not the handful of other titles they've put out, but being able to go 17+ years with the same basic formula and still putting out fun games shows they've done something right.

              Day 16 - Least favourite video game company

              I really hate to say it, having done work with them and still enjoying many of their games, but my least favorite has to be EA. They've got so many good games out there that should really be great games, but only following their own agenda and not listening to the general consumers really hurts them. Just out of personal experience, there are games like NHL 13, where in their most recent update, there are players on certain teams that haven't actually played in the NHL for 2 seasons now, and others are still in the game that haven't played since 2008! They also shut down online servers to games as little as 2 years after their releases, basically forcing you to buy the new versions, or move on (and all this is just in the EA Sports wing- I won't even get into some of the other stuff).

                I've never really been a fan of EA, with largest reason being I just don't really play videogames from the sports genre.

                  Nintendo because they pretty much got me into in gaming starting with the Super Nintendo.

                  Day 16 - Least favourite video game company

                  I am not fond of Capcom. Capcom for starting the trend of charging for DLC that is already on the disc.

                  Day 17 - Favourite antagonist

                  I really liked Kefka from FFVI for actually taking over the world and destroying it in the process while making himself god.

                    Day 16 - Least favourite video game company

                    I've never been much for Activision, they tend to like to drain all the life out of alot of the games they touch.

                    Although this might just be considering current events, but I really don't like Gearbox Studios, perhaps it's just be jumping on the bandwagon, but after what happened to Aliens: Colonial Marines, it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

                    Day 17 - Favourite antagonist

                    Zulf (Bastion)- I've already talked alot about Zulf in some of my other posts on this thread so I'll just leave it to what I said before. He's a great antagonist.

                    Doctor Eggman (Robotnik) (Sonic)- again, for the same reasons I said in a post earlier in this thread.

                    Rufus Shinra (Final Fantasy VII)- He might of been a puppet, but he was one cool customer.

                    Day 17 - Favorite Antagonist
                    Raul Menendez (Black Ops II) This man was incredibly smart. So much so he f*cked the minds of the protagonist multiple times. Orchestrating every move your character did up until the end. And it all started by accidentally getting shot in the face by Alex Mason. 30 years of pent-up aggression released on the United States at once. Simply awesome.

                    Day 17 - Favorite Antagonist

                    Luca Blight from Suikoden II has always been a personal favorite. The dude is flat out crazy, but there's actually some depth to his character and reason behind his actions. His past made him into a monster due to witnessing something happen to his mother. So despite all the evil things he did, you actually feel some sympathy for him.

                    Zephiel from FE6 is another one for kinda the same reasons. His past is gone into greater detail in FE7, and gives you some insight on what drove him to commit the things he did in FE6. Not to mention, he has a pretty sweet looking weapon and an equally sweet battle theme too.

                      Day 18 - Favorite Protagonist

                      I'm just going to list them:

                      ~ Cless from Tales of Phantasia
                      ~ Yuri Lowell from Tales of Vesperia
                      ~ Lloyd Irving from Tales of Symphonia
                      ~ Sonic from the Sonic games
                      ~ Tails from the Sonic Games
                      ~ Knuckles from the Sonic Games
                      ~ Chrom from Fire Emblem: Awakening
                      ~ Ragna from Blazblue

                      And probably more that I've forgotten, but.. those are at the top of my head atm.

                      Master Chief Petty Officer John-117, he has so much depth and every time you see him in a cutscene you wonder why he's become so distant to the world, how much he's seen, how many of his fellow Spartan have perished next to him in battle. And you feel for his determination.
