    Feb 24th, 2007 at 02:00:28     -    Super Smash Brothers (N64)

    In Super Smash Brothers it has both an extensive multiplayer and single player experiences. The single player is extremely engaging because of the variety of battles and chracters that you encounter. One level that I found particularly interesting was the one where fifteen small Kirby characters start attacking you three at a time. Their lives are drastically reduced from the single foes that you previously encounter in the game which make them easier to take out. The challenege exist in their sheer numbers. I believe that this little change in the gameplay increases the value of the game ten fold. Another intesresting factor of the single player is the option of playing mini games in between the actual battle fights. These mini games offer the gamer a new twist after the numerous fighting levels. Some mini games require you to navigate through the level and destroy all the targets, others require you to run against a time limit to reach the eventual goal. These mini games allow the gamer to escape the common fighting levels and compete in a completely different game which requires a completely different objective to be completed.

    Feb 23rd, 2007 at 14:14:15     -    Super Smash Brothers (N64)

    The game that I chose from the classic list this week was Super Smash Brothers for the Nintendo 64. When this game was originally released it was practically owned by every teenager who owned a Nintedo 64 console. One of the reasons for the success of Super Smash Brothers was the fact that you could play the game with four of your freinds at the same time. The competition factor of the game makes it extremely exciting. Another key reason for the success was the fact that no two games that you played were alike. Every match had factors such as items, player skills, and levels that made each game completely random. The randomness of the matches was one of the huge reasosn for the success of Smash Brothers, because this lead to a great re-play value. This re-play value is probably the biggest reason why Smash Brothers is on the classic list today. People can play this game 10 years later and still have as much fun as they did when first played it during its release.

    Feb 9th, 2007 at 13:46:21     -    Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (360)

    After my intitial gameplay of Elder Scroll IV: Oblivion for the xbox 360, I was excited to show my friends how detailed and visually gorgeous this game is. One factor that I found intriguing was how fascinated my girlfriend was when watching me play the game. She was so intrigued by Oblivion that she made me let her make a new character. I thought the game had a limitless options for the male character. Although that might be true, the female characters in this game have even more options from their hair styles to the color of their lips. In this overally masculine gamer world, I was fascinated to see a female getting into Oblivion the same way that I was. I believe that it is partly due to the gameplay that makes this game so addicting and fun to play. When searching the different realms with your character you can either scroll around in a over the shoulder third person cam, or go into first person mode where it makes you actually feel like you are holding a shield or sword or casting a magic spell. The magic aspect of this game is also fascinating. Already in the beginning of my game I have an array of skills and abilities. For example, I can cast a light spell that projects a green aura around me that lets me see and I can also cast a conjuration spell that summons a skeleton to fight for me. This varied skills I have to help me proceed through my journies make the gameplay extremely exciting. I look forward to the new and different skills I will be acquiring as I progress through this game.

    Feb 9th, 2007 at 13:37:07     -    Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (360)

    The game I decided to play for my gamelog was Elder Scroll IV: Oblivion for the xbox 360 console. Before buying this game, I heard nothing but postive things about it and I even read that it was said to be quite possibly the best RPG game ever made. When I began the game I was immediately aware of how detailed this game was going to be. Right when you start off the game you start inside a jail cell where you are prompted to choose your kind of character. The options you have when creating your character are so detailed and specific that it is virtually impossible to create the same character as another gamer playing the game. For example, you could change everything about your character from his skill class, his hair, and even the dimensons of every aspect of your face; nose, mouth, lips, etc. I was originally very impressed with how detailed the game was, I dont think that I have ever seen a game that lets you contol as many aspects of your character and journey as Oblivion does. It seems that no matter where you travel in this game you will encounter different character that either need your help with something or will give you advice where to go for your next mission. Even right now in the game I just began it seems that I am already on like five different quests, each leading my in a different direction and path. This was my initial recation and thoughts when playing Elder Scroll IV: Oblivion.
