Because I say so.
I have to say, me and my family never really got into board games. The extent of my board game experience is sadly, Monopoly and the German version of "Sorry!". I have no idea how to play Risk or Mousetrap or I don't even know what else is out there.
Somehow, my brothers and I got into video games, each of getting the original GameBoy one year. Curious how my mom managed to master Tetris too...
A couple years later we got the SNES and I still managed to suck at most games. Except for Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. That was the first time I fell in love with that franchise, you know, before it became a franchise. So when my brothers and I got to upgrade to the N64 and Ocarina of Time was released that's all I could play and think about. That game, even that system tops my list.
It was honestly the first and only console where I appreciated and enjoyed playing first person shooters, specifically GoldenEye when Pierce Brosnan was cast as James Bond. Obviously I started out being the target of both my brothers in that game, but I soon learned enough skillz to match them, even winning a round or two over the years.
But it wasn't too long after that where I really fell in love with RPG's. SquareSoft, now SquareEnix, had released Final Fantasy 7 for PC. It was a brilliant opportunity for me to play a new game series I would have never had access to, being a Nintendo patron. Even though Final Fantasy has changed dramatically over the last few games, I'm still a fan of the franchise, but number 7 will always hold a special place in my heart.
As amazing as the game play and graphics for Final Fantasy 13 are, I now have Final Fantasy I and Tetris on my iPhone. If anybody else has a smartphone with games on it, let me know which ones.
