☆The Absolute Beauty Of Positivity Towards Video Games☆ @ejwillingham #GamersUnite #Retrogaming

As I look back over my childhood I remember with immense fondness all those hours spent with my best friends playing Video Games and creating great memories.

 

I feel that the feeling towards Video Games is maybe swaying towards the positive arguments but there's still a massive way to go before Video Games are as acceptable as Films as a genuinely valid way to spend time whether you are 5 or 55.

 

The positives for me greatly outweigh the negatives and I feel the positives are more widely publicised now than ever before 


(Although as I write this post, the lazy journalists at The Daily Mail are trying to drag Video Games under again

Fallout New Vegas, Video Games

With the Fallout series the game's central story is almost surplus to requirements when playing this marvellous, involving, all consuming RPG.

 

I tend to set out with the best intentions of taking another step forward with the unveiling of the storyline and yet I will more often than not get distracted by a battle or a side quest that will take me in totally the opposite direction.

 

The thing is, that is the beauty of an open world to explore to your hearts content…..


The creators of the Fallout New Vegas have created a landscape that is begging to be explored.

It's vast and it's open, so vast and open that sometimes you can walk for minutes without encountering anything!

In that scenario it makes your next encounter with someone or something even more memorable.

You also find yourself feeling glad to locate a moving white marker on your in game compass as you realise it's a friend rather than a red enemy marker.

It's these stumbled upon moments in the game that make it so worthwhile to play.

The GameBoy 25th Birthday Celebrations Keep On Going And Today We Look At The Worst Side Of The GameBoy Video Games Phenomenon..


As with any video games console release there will always be developers that try and jump on the gravy train by bringing out any old junk for the latest video games behemoth

More recently a phenomenon known as "shovelware" appeared due to the unprecedented sales success of the Nintendo Wii

This led to some awful bland generic games being released for the Nintendo Wii as it was a victim of its own success story!

Back in the days of the Nintendo GameBoy when it ruled the hand-held gaming land there were also some real stinkers that were released that were either just badly made or just an excuse to try and cash in on the success of the GameBoy fraternity and sometimes a bit of both.

We dug deep to find the stinkiest of these stinkers to bring back some GameBoy Nightmares from Nintendo Past…….

Here's what horrors we found lurking in the GameBoy undergrowth……

★★Take A Look At The Games Freezer Top 5 GameBoy Games From The Last 25 Years★★ #RetroGaming #GamersUnite

So as we continue the GameBoy 25 Year Birthday celebrations and pay homage to the Grey Marvel that is the GameBoy, we begin to look back at the last 25 years worth of GameBoy games and pick out the cream of the crop.


There have been some absolute beauties that have harnessed the little box over these years in order to produce a great game from 4 shades of grey to provide a shaded LCD experience like no other before OR since!

The hardware was not powerful but despite the GameBoys technical limitations, amazing, addictive, endearing and sometimes complex games were produced that had gamers hooked from day 1 of the GameBoy's release in 1989

With that in mind, it's going to be hard to whittle the extensive Gameboy catalogue down to just 5.
 
In order to create our Top 5 we are only looking at games that could be played on the classic GameBoy as it's the Original GameBoy that’s 25 Years old and not its colour brother from another mother.

Anyway enough of all that, let's get on with this as we give you Games Freezer's Top 5 GameBoy games from the last 25 years!

When you were younger did you ever play the game where you described your ideal video game?


You'd give it a title

You'd give it a genre

You'd then go on to describe the look and feel of the game

You'd explain the story

You'd describe the gameplay

You'd then go on to explain the aim of the game

2 years after finishing Fallout 3 I decided it was time to be consumed by the post apocalyptic wasteland again.

 

Fallout New Vegas was my experience of choice this time and this time I've decided to trial the documenting of my Mojave Wasteland journey.

 

This could make for good video games journalism or it might just end up being tedious.......but I'll give it a go because I'm sure that buried within the Wasteland is a Story to tell.........
