Banjo-Kazooie was the first game I ever played. I remember my mother played it and she loved it. As a small child, no older than 5, I managed to delete her file at the final boss, Gruntilda.
She’s never played it since.
But a while later, when I started making sense of this insane world, I tried it out. It was, to understate it, amazing. My feeble little mind was completely blown. There we no remnants of my brain to be seen. And because I enjoyed it so much, I have came back to it every couple of years, only to be reminded of that sense I had when I first played it. Even without my nostalgia-goggles on, I can definitely say it is one of the best games ever created, and this is why you should play it.
There is only one word to describe this game: Bliss. Pure platforming bliss, in it’s most refined, clear state. I have yet to play a game that exceeds or even matches the insane level of quality that Yoshi’s Island provides. If you never played this game on it’s home console, the Super Nintendo, or even some platform like the DS, you are missing out, and this is why you should play it.
Ah Myst. The inescapable game. Ported to everything including your piano, lamp, and garage door, If you haven’t played this on one device or the other, HOW?! If you haven’t, Myst is this week’s game, and this is why you should play it.
