The Games We're Thankful For on Thanksgiving

Posted on Wednesday, November 23 @ 17:20:00 Eastern by GR_Staff

This holiday, the GameRevolution Staff gathered around the warm fire, full of tryptophan and stuffing, and decided to talk about the video games we were most thankful for... because celebrating a holiday based on those traitorous pilgrim bastards is too stupid to comprehend. Why would you celebrate them? Why?!

Celebrate video games instead! Here are the games we'll be thinking of when that one relative insists we say prayers just when we've shoveled the first perfect Thanksgiving bite halfway to our lips.

Heath Hindman:

I hold a special gratitude towards ICO. I once had a long-distance friend of the opposite sex for whom I'd developed special feelings. Being a gamer and naturally being totally awkward about telling someone how I felt, I turned to games to send the message for me. Enter ICO, a perfect example of a game being art and a great way to send a message. Cooler kids would have made a mix tape, as was the style at the time, but no, I aimed higher, nerdier, expensive... er. To find out if my scheme worked, you'll have to ask my wife.

Jessica Vazquez:

I would like to give my thanks to the original Resident Evil. Before that game I was stuck in my comfortable bubble of inconsequential multiplayer games I enjoyed in the company of my friends and family. I played Resident Evil when I was but a wee ten-year-old sprite and became enchanted by the ability to solve elaborate puzzles and kick zombie ass. I used to mute the television so I didn't have to hear the creepy thud of the gigantic spiders as they crawled toward me, and I even resorted to pausing the game for my uncle to come kill the ape like Hunters because they terrified me.

Slowly, I noticed something begin to change. I no longer went running for the hills when anything more than a run-of-the-mill zombie rushed at me suddenly from an unexplored hallway. It was the first game I finished that had an in depth story and engaging action. It showed that games can be more than something you pop in for a couple hours of multiplayer fun with friends and family. It was a complete emotional experience and helped shape me into the gamer I am today.

I could sit here and go on about how perfect Chrono Trigger is, why it's still on top of many people's "best of all time" lists, and why everyone should play it no matter what age they are. But that wouldn't be very personal, would it?

No, the reason I'm thankful for Chrono Trigger is that it may very well be the reason I'm here now, doing what I do. When I was just a kid playing through the game over and over again, it got my overzealous young imagination going and I thought up more stories set in that universe that I eventually want to tell (I've since changed the universe, but I still want to tell 'em).

That dream pushed me to first study programming, and even though I've since abandoned that route (physics was the Magus to my Frog), I now write about games because I still want to be a part of the industry. And maybe someday, you'll all get a chance to see those stories I imagined all those years ago.

Eddy Fettig:

I'm thankful for Super Smash Bros. Brawl, because it continues to serve as a wonderfully detailed fighting game I can enjoy with friends and family whenever it's picked up. The multitude of options, modes, control schemes, and varied characters, matched with its simplistic concept and button layouts ensure that even those who hardly play games can pick it up and we can all have a blast. And of course, myself and my game-oriented friends can dig deeper and enjoy the surprisingly rich and unique fighting game system it has to offer. Years after it's been released, it still stands as the best game for me to sit down and play with friends and relatives during the holiday season.

Kuulei Naipo:

This Thanksgiving, I'll be in a dress, leggings, and heels walking around a crowded extravagant home with a champagne glass in my left hand. I'll be talking about world news, politics, and the weather... when all I will really be thinking about is prestiging, my G26C, and how I am going to customize it, and which Strike Package will go best with my stealth class.

I'm thankful for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 because when I'm not acting proper and mingling, I am yelling about the quickscoping sniper who killed me, shouting about capturing the flag, and squealing with glee over earning a multi-kill with a predator missile. On Thanksgiving, I'll be away from home, but by the weekend, I'll be in my PJs with my hair tied up in a bun while I sip on hazelnut hot chocolate, all the while enjoying the fast-paced action I only get from playing MW3.
