A couple of my good pals have started a podcast all about Nintendo! The podcast is called NNPXL (New Nintendo Podcast XL) and I made a little logo for them!
Their first episode was all about their Top 10 Video Games, which inspired my own (smaller) list of top video games from childhood until now. Here's a quick, short list of games I love, have really fond memories of, and could pick up and play anytime. ((Feel free to share yours! I want to see what you all come up with.))
6. Star Wars Episode I: Racer
5. Zombies Ate My Neighbors
4. Pokémon Pearl
This was the first Pokémon game I actually played all the way through. I also loved the Underground, Secret Bases, mining, etc.
3. Any Sims!
I played a LOT of Sims Bustin' Out on GameCube and Sims 3 on my computer.
2. Animal Crossing: New Leaf
1. Harvest Moon - Magical Melody
I spent way too many hours on this and Sims in high school :)
Honorable Mentions: I haven't had much time in recent years to pick up or really delve into any new games, unfortunately, but more recent ones I love(d) playing are Animal Crossing: Happy Home Academy and Yokai Watch.
Here is the very first episode of My friend and I's podcast called New Nintendo PodcastXL. In this first episode we break down what the show is about and list our top ten video games. Artwork by @pizzaface
