Seeming that today marks the release of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS I thought I’d share the story of the first time I played Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 64.
The following is an excerpt from The Adventure is Over: How Working in a Video Game Store Ended It – Part 1
Video games are something I enjoy greatly. Especially when there is an amazing narrative involved. Gameplay is king and nice graphics help too. Being able to immerse one’s self into a world of escapism for an unmetered amount of hours is an amazing thing. But for me, that’s not all there is to video games.
The lead up to getting a game used to be an adventure. The event of getting a game used to be an adventure. From reading about upcoming releases in magazines to booting the game in the console and all the events in-between is what used to make the adventure for me.
But… Working in a video game store took that away.
