My First Meme

It’s time for a meme. Here’s one I really like: comfort games. This is based on the observation that, for some people, playing certain video games is a good way to relax and unwind. Although I don’t play very many video games myself, I can totally relate to this idea. There’s just nothing that quite matches the feeling of playing a fun, classic game. It really can be therapeutic.

My top 5 comfort games:

  1. Snow Bros.
  2. Unreal Tournament 2003
  3. Mario Kart 64
  4. Dig Dug
  5. The Faery Tale Adventure (Amiga)

Yes, my #1 comfort game is an early-nineties Bubble Bobble derivative. At least its premise is a little more believable than dinosaurs blowing bubbles; in Snow Bros., animated snowmen roll boulder-sized balls of snow around the screen. It’s madness, and it’s genius.
