| GAMEPLAY #2: After playing Super Smash Brothers for another hour, I definitely got more used to the game. I still lost first every single round, but I lasted longer in the game. Then finally, I came in second place, and I definitely was not as frustrated anymore. I learned that I have to be more patient, even though often times I just want to do well at the game.|
Another reason that I started to like the game more was because I decided to play as more than one character. For the whole first hour I was playing as Fox, and then for the rest of the time I played as Yoshi, Kirby, Jigglypuff, Mario, and Pikachu. From this, I learned which characters are more useful and whcih characters do better in the fights. Varying between many different characters also makes the game way more interesting.
DESIGN: I really liked all of the graphics in this game. For example, all of the different levels have a lot of graphic details. There was a level with bright green trees and a large pink heart. However, I noticed the moving clouds in the sky, because the characters would often times jump on them. The movement of the clouds along with the bright colors make this game very appealing especially to the younger demographic.
Another element of the design of the game that I really enjoyed was how the happy, upbeat music matched the characters' expressions. For instance, Jigglypuff's eyes got larger when he did something good, and then the music was all happy. The addition of the music with the detailed graphics of each level enhance the graphics even more. Not to mention, the characters bright colors make all the graphics stand out even more, which is one of my favorite elements of this game.

| Super Smash Brothers--Nintendo 64|
SUMMARY: Super Smash Brothers is a fighting game using the characters from various Nintendo games (Mario, Kirby, Yoshi, etc.) The overall goal is to raise the other players' percentages which would kill them off.
GAMEPLAY#1: I have never played any game on Nintendo 64, so this was definitely a challenge from the get go. So when I first started playing, I had no idea what I was doing and I was extremely frustrated. I was just pressing the A and B buttons along with using the center controller, experimenting and seeing what would happen when I pressed a certain combination of buttons. I kept getting angry because I kept losing first, but I guess that's understandable because I have never played before.
While playing around with the buttons, I discovered that I could do tricks with my character with the four smaller buttons. When I pressed these buttons, I noticed my character was doing all sorts of jumps and flips in the air over the other characters. Then, I noticed that with another combination of buttons, my character would occasionally receive weapons, usually in the form of a glowing sword. Unfortunately, I don't remember what buttons I used to get the weapons. So far, it seems like I need a lot of practice.
