Moderately Gray Saturday
Everyone needs a Darth Vadar Christmas Stocking, no?
I found this little gem while shopping on Black Friday from the safety of my home (where I could also play Civ Rev, because I clearly haven’t played that enough). It got me thinking about things that you really should have if you’re a game designer – games that you’d be remiss not to own, to play and to know.
Here are four:
- The Settlers of Catan. Amazon is presently listing it for $33 which includes free shipping.
- Psychonauts. It’s important to remember that there are genres beyond the FPS, and to reward those who make games outside of that comfort zone.
- Okami on the Wii. Game interaction has the potential to be so much more than “Press X.”
- Bohnanza. This game has such an odd pattern, but it’s incredibly fun to play, and great in a social environment.
My husband actually went out and attempted to get a Wii Fit from Sam’s Club. Though he was way up there in the line, he wasn’t close enough to get the very few they had in stock.
