30 Day Gaming Challenge: #4 – Your Guilty Pleasure GameAugust 24, 2017
Welcome, one and all, the day four of the 30 Day Gaming Challenge. Today’s subject is … your guilty pleasure game. This is similar to day five of the 30 Day Anime Challenge for me in that I don’t strictly have a guilty pleasure game. I either enjoy a game or I don’t. So, I’m gonna go with a game that was more enjoyable than it theoretically should have been: Tiny Toon Adventures – ACME All-Stars on the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive.
Now, I won’t go into too much detail here, largely because I want to run an In Desperate Need of Love about this game, but I will say this: the game is essentially one of those TV tie-in’s where they gathered a large number of cast members from a popular kid’s show, and set them up in a game where you could play multiple different (yet simple) games, in this case soccer, bowling, basketball, obstacle course, and the whack-a-mole variant known as ‘Montana Hitting’. Given that it was likely put together rather hastily, it should have sucked. Maybe being a fan of the show helped a little, but I have nothing but fond memories of this particular title. Therefore, this is the closest that I can come in this category.
But … does anyone else have an actual guilty pleasure game?
