All gamers have games they played as a kid that make them nostalgic. We all have games we would like to play that don’t exist yet. Then there are those games we wish were never born. Answer these three questions:
What game would you love to play again?
Give an answer and explain.

What game would you love to play again?
I would love to play Crash Bandicoot again.
There are so many games that I would love to play again besides this game but this was my first 3D adventure game. This was also the first game I played on the PS1. I love the characters and the game play and the world itself. It had humor in it as well and it really appealed to 11 year old me.
What game would you like to play that doesn’t exist?
I have always wanted to play an adventure game that has a theme of 1950/60 space adventures. It needs to be filled with ridiculously cheesy space monsters, impractical space suits and planets that all have breathable air. We (Uncharted Interactive) have actually been talking about possibly working on a game like this. I love adventure games but I have wanted to see something with a bit more quirky humor and an unusual theme.
What game do you wish never existed?
Congo Bongo (Atari)
This game was too hard. The first system/console I played on was an Atari, when I was 4 years old. It had both the 2600 and 5200 games you could play on it. I don’t recall which one this game was on but I did not enjoy it. I know the Atari is super old school but there were a lot of cool games that I did enjoy like Pac man and Jungle Hunt. Whether I was 4 or 24 this game was still too hard for me. Maybe I am not the best at games but I can usually get past the first level. I could have done without this game as a child.

WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO PLAY AGAIN:
This is going to be the toughest question for me to answer because, like Sonja, there are too many games I would like to play again. The games that come to mind have to be the ones that remind me of more than just playing, but also what was going on at the time. My younger brother, Steve, use to watch me play a lot of these games, so they are also memories of hanging out with my brother. Ultimately I think the Donkey Kong Country series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donkey_Kong_Country) would be my choice for its solid gameplay, music, and overall atmosphere. Final Fantasy 7 a close runner up.
WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO PLAY THAT DOES NOT EXIST:
As a game designer there are dozens of game concepts that I would love to see come to life. Luckily for me Uncharted Interactive will by the path to realizing many if not all of these dreams. However, the concept that stands out the tallest I am currently calling Spacetronaughts! It is a 3rd Person Adventure Shoot for you and up to 3 of your friends. In this adventure you, and your friends, explore the planets of our solar system but as they are imagined by the classic sci-fi creators of the past… here is an example of what I mean: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_aoZjamlF5VE/S_iwdNVQYYI/AAAAAAAAAYw/GXsovXTiA5Q/s1600/robot_monster.jpg
This is a concept that I aim to make a reality in the future when Uncharted Interactive reaches a greater maturity.
WHAT GAME SHOULD DIE IN A FIRE:
There are plenty of games that I have found uncomfortably difficult (Subterrainia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70XQsiTOK4I) but that didn’t make them bad games. When I think about it, I am sure that most of the game I have chosen to play have some molecule of quality, even if they were poorly executed. However, there is a series of abominations that I cannot forgive for what they have done to my childhood, and that is the Sonic the Hedgehog series. I grew up playing the Sonic games, I remember playing 1 – 3 and being super excited about Knuckles. Later when Sonic Adventure came out I was thrilled by the idea of a modern Sonic the Hedgehog game, IN 3D! But that is when it all when wrong… Without going on a horrible rant, the Sonic the Hedgehog series has lost it’s soul, and nearly all of its credibility as a good game. I’m not saying I could make a better Sonic game, I’m just saying I could make a WAY better Sonic game. And I am prepared to take that challenge!
