In elementary school, kids have all sorts of pipe dreams about what they want to be when they grown up. Doctor, athlete, rapper, dancer, movie star… all of these things seem possible when you’re young. As for myself, I wanted to be one thing: someone who writes about video games in a magazine.
In those days, the NES was my life, and Nintendo Power was my bible. Like many kids of the era, I would read- no, that’s not the right word for it. I would study every image and word on every page; nothing I had ever read felt as good as reading Nintendo Power.
It felt so good that I wanted to try my hand at making my own Nintendo magazine.
I attended the E3 2013 Nintendo Experience tonight, and I want to share some impressions of both the games and my experience. If you just want to read some quick thoughts on the games, skim down a few paragraphs to check out my thoughts, but if you have any interest in attending the event later this week, I’d recommend reading my impressions of it as well.
