Song Challenge Day 15: Unexpected

“A song people wouldn’t expect you to like”

This isn’t an easy one for me. I think most people who know enough about my musical tastes to have any perception of what I like at all are likely to be right about any given song.

Well, I guess this one surprised a couple of people, but I think they were more surprised it was coming from where it did in the first place than by the fact that I liked it. Still a little of that too, though, so this is what I’m going with.

And to be fair, who would expect that from a video game whose cast of characters includes Mario, Pikachu, Sonic the Hedgehog, and a sentient NES accessory?

Video Game Challenge Day 2: Favorite Game

“Favorite video game”

A much harder question. Either Super Smash Bros. Brawl or Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, I’ll decide between them after I’m played the new one more.

Xenogears is a strong candidate as well; I’ll be saying more about it later.

One less obvious game that’s definitely up near the top for me is Super Robot Taisen Original Generation 2 for the Game Boy Advance. I know it’s not even the best game in the Super Robot Wars series, but it’s the best one that can be played in English.

Finally, there’s one truly timeless game that must be named. No, not Pac-Man, Mega Man, or anything with Mario (I just named one with them, though); this is a game that, with no characters at all, guaranteed that for the rest of my life “The Nutcracker” would make me think of falling blocks:

I question whether Tetris really needs to be identified, but that’s the NES version.
