Nintendo has been receiving a lot of hate universally recently. As a team we decided to share our most loved moments from Nintendo. For most of the team, we felt like most of our gaming journeys started with a Nintendo game. Some of these games are so ingrained into the gaming community that it would be hard to find someone who has never heard of them. Do you know the titles in this list? I would be genuinely amazed if you didn’t know all of them; so without any more delay, let’s get started.
Donkey Kong Country 2 – Most of my childhood gaming memories come from the original Donkey Kong Country trilogy on the Super Nintendo. In particular, Donkey Kong Country 2 stands out as the best entry into the series for me. It had the perfect balance of level design and enemy types and provided hours upon hours of gaming for my family. I still don’t feel like the newer DKC games have captured this type of timeless charm.
Super Smash Bros – I never owned a Nintendo Console when I was younger. I had to go to friend’s houses just to play some of the most iconic Nintendo games. We always found ourselves with too many people to play the standard games, so we decided to host our very own Super Smash Bros. tournament. We played the standard rules of winner plays on and that was it, we were hooked! I use to rush home from school throwing my bag across the room and then run to my friend’s house before anyone else, just to call dibs on first go. The chaotic nature of the game had all of us in stitches as you would try your hardest to get back onto the platform to fight some more. I loved playing Samus because she had guns and she wore armour and that was really cool. This game soon became a favourite of mine throughout my life. I still remember getting chucked off the edge by Kirby relentlessly and laughing every time. I can’t wait for Nintendo to bring this back for the Wii U.
