There’s a lot of different sides to me. There’s the Eagle-fanatic side that just loves the NFL and his Eagles. There’s the Honey Badger, my deranged, athlete side who simply has no regard for his own or anyone else’s well being. That side is also known as my “power trip”. And then, there’s my nerd side.
I am a bit of a nerd. I am an absolute Star Wars addict. I could look at a picture of a character, and probably give you a solid name and specific event that occurred in that character’s theatrical life.
But, as into Star Wars as I am, I’m a huge video game freak. My favorite franchise is the Super Smash Brothers series made famous by those awesome people at Nintendo. But there’s always been a very close second.
That would be the Nintendo-produced Pokemon franchise. Everyone knows about Pikachu, but I know about the other 600. It’s a whole world that I just love to immerse myself in from time to time. In fact, over the weekend, I went out and purchased one of the newest installments in the franchise, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon.
I just realized how lame that actually sounds, but the game is once again very entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable.
My love for Pokemon stems back to when I first got my Nintendo 64 at age 4. I loved those games. I obviously started with Super Mario 64, the most popular game at the time. Then, I made my way to the Super Smash games and immediately chose Pikachu as my fighting character due to my recognition of the Pokemon franchise.
Since that fateful day where I only thought Pikachu had one attack in that game, I had been attached to Pokemon.
