A few weeks ago, some of us were sitting around a table discussing future features for H/H, almost all of which began with – “oh my god, have you seen this film?! Or; woah, did you hear the new [insert band name here] album?!? In other words, our “latest obsessions.” Enter: an ongoing profile of latest pop-culture obsessions from around the agency.
This week marks our second such feature, with a focus on gaming. Our author, Malcolm Egun, was particularly amped about Modern Warfare 3. Rather than writing a review, he thought he’d ask people in the office about their all time favorite video game obsessions. Below are the results.
GAME: Uncharted 3 for PS3.
WHY?: “It’s like playing a movie: innovative and interactive.”
GAME: Sonic for Sega Genesis
WHY?: “I was good at it!” It was also my first game on my first gaming system.” Ah, nostalgia.
GAME: Angry Birds for iPad
WHY: “Because it satisfies my destructive urges.”
GAME: Super Mario Brothers for Nintendo
WHY?: No explanation necessary. We totally get it.
GAME: Solitaire for everywhere
WHY?: “I can play Solitaire anywhere and everywhere. Computer, phone, or even regular cards!”
GAME: Fight Night 3 for Nintendo 64
WHY?: “Toggles, not buttons. Did really well with that.”
