Video Games I’m Thankful For (Part 2)

In the second part of the “Video Games I’m Thankful For” series, I’ll be venturing to a different system. Yesterday I showcased Super Mario Land for the original GameBoy, the first video game I ever received. Today will also be a video game that is dear to me. Check out the second game here:

Pokémon Stadium

Fast forward a few years after I received my first GameBoy, and the fascination with home consoles began to fester. After years of prodding my parents, I was lucky enough to get a Nintendo 64 with Pokémon Stadium. The amazing visual of seeing all 150 original Pokémon in 3D was simply awe inspiring. Connecting it to Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue further brought the pure amazingness of the game and what it could offer.

Aside from having your Pokémon battle, the mini-games were also a wonderful section of the game. In fact, those were the first gaming sequences that my mother played –  and boy did she love that Chansey game!

I still have the system and game and occasionally connect it to relive those glory days. Whether it’s versing the ultimate Mewtwo or playing a quick game of the mini-games, times are always good with it.

What games are you thankful for? What games have a special spot in your heart?

Come back tomorrow for the next game of the series!
