Thank you to AK from Everything is bad for you for this Real Neat Blog award! AK has been reviewing the Cop Craft anime and you can find his latest review here!

The Questions

What’s your favorite game genre?

My favorite video game genre is RPGS especially JRPGS. I love the stories, the world that I can explore, and I do like when I am exploring the game with a party that I can interact with!

Is there a game genre you will never touch, no matter how much praise a game in that genre might receive? What puts you off about it?

I have not played a visual novel yet only because I would like to take part in the story instead of reading it. I do like to read, but I like an active part in video games where I can walk around, battle, and interact with the world around me. That’s not to say that I think visual novels are bad games, they just are not my type of game!

What’s your favorite controller?

I think my favorite controller is the Nintendo Switch JoyCons just because I like that they are versatile! They can be separated from the Switch and can be turned into a controller. They can also be used for multiplayer with friends where one person gets one JoyCon and the other person gets the other JoyCon. I just love how flexible the controller is!

What’s your least favorite controller?

Definitely the Wii controller! I tried it once after I got my Wii U so I could play Skyward Sword on the Wii U. Pointing the Wii remote at the screen to control it was not easy because the Wii remote had to be calibrated and you have to hold it straight so it can be picked up by the sensor but, it is really sensitive to movement which made the Wii remote difficult to control. Also, the nunchuck that came with it was broken because I bought them used at my local game store so it did not work and I could not make Link move. I ended up returning it and the game to my local game store and definitely do not want to try a Wii again!

What game would you like to see get a full-scale remake? Complete with any updated graphics, features, and game mechanics you’d like.

I would love to see an updated Ghost Master game. There was only one made in 2003 and I played it when I was a kid and played it again on Steam. I would love to see how the game would look updated and also what features they could add like maybe extra levels or more ghosts to collect!

How do you approach difficulty levels in games that offer that option? Do you like to jump into the deep end right away or take a more measured approach?

I tend to approach difficulty by choosing easy mode whenever I can. I just like to enjoy the story and want to relax.

How do you feel about the “casual/story mode” difficulty levels that are easier than the standard easy mode? Is there any situation in which you’d play a game in that mode?

I generally do not take this mode despite liking easy mode just because I like a bit of a challenge. Story mode usually would make the game a bit too easy. But, if the game was known to be notoriously difficult even on easy mode I would probably choose story mode.

My Questions

  1. What do you think about games that are designed to be difficult such as Dark Souls?
  2. What are your thoughts about lootboxes and the lootbox controversy in games?
  3. What do you think about games that have controversy leading up their release such as Borderlands 3? Would you still consider playing a game despite the controversies surrounding it?
  4. What game would you like to made into a TV show or movie like The Witcher?
  5. What game music would you like to be seen turned into a live concert such as the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra?
  6. What video game do you find the most comforting?
  7. what is your favorite part about the blogging community?

  1. I’m also into JRPGs, though I sadly don’t have much time to play them anymore. I really like visual novels as well, though I understand why you can’t get into them since they lack the same kind of interactivity that more traditional games have.

    I was never a great fan of the Wii controller setup either. My favorite for a long time has been the Dualshock, and especially the updated PS4 version, though I can’t say if it’s just because I’ve spent so much time on it.

    The way people approach challenge in games is interesting to me. I get playing in easy mode and don’t really like the snobby attitude some people have towards it — what mode you want to play games in is all about personal preference, what you want to get out of the experience. I feel a bit differently about the kind of casual mode that effectively removes all challenge from the game because it fundamentally changes the experience, but I wouldn’t criticize someone for playing that mode as well if they want to do it. It’s all about having a good time, after all.

    Thanks for the interesting responses! And thanks as well for linking my Cop Craft review series. Reminds me that I need to watch episode 10 and get my post up this weekend.

    1. I have the same problem with JRPGS. I love playing them, but they take up a lot of time!

      The PS4 controller is definitely a great controller as well, I love how easy it fits into my hands!

      I also find the way people approach challenge interesting. I always play on easy, but my friend plays on hard mode and loves challenging series like Dark Souls.

      Your post on Cop Craft reminded me that I need to watch the series! I’m currently watching Given!

      1. I’m really liking Cop Craft so far, and I hope the quality holds up to the end of the season (aside from the animation quality, which has been all over the place so far, but I don’t mind that so much.) Given doesn’t look like it would be my kind of thing, but I’ve heard some good things about it.
