It’s the most wonderful time of the year… when you actually have time to play video games! And partake in any other hobby you want to. And meet family, friends and eat great food. Giving gifts, experiencing merriness, laughter, warmth. Don we now our green apparel. All that, you know.
This year I won’t be writing about a certain game that gives me christmas glee, since I can’t come up with anything other than The legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons. Sure, I have memories of other games but none other like Oracle of Seasons.
Outside of travelling, when on the bus, plane or when there’s nothing good on TV on your hotel around late in the evening, the yuletide is the best time to play video games, mainly since you’re supposed to try out your new games and everyone is supposed to be a little kid again. I don’t mean through getting presents, but in spirit. That’s why everyone stuffs themselves like there’s no tomorrow; that’s not a rational adult thing to do, it’s very childish indeed.
I’d like to wish to all a Merry (Happy) Christmas (Holidays) and what better way to do but by presenting you a Video Game Carol!
Wario, the pink-nosed looter
You know Master Chief and Mario and Crash and Luigi,
you know Bowser and Sonic, Donkey Kong and Waluigi,
But do you recall
A less famous video game character among them all
Wario the pink-nosed looter
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it blows
All of the other characters
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Wario
Join in Mario Party games
Then one foggy Nintendo Day,
Kiyotake came to say,
Wario with your nose so bright,
Won’t you invade Mario’s castle tonight.
Then how all gamers loved him,
As they shouted out with glee,
Wario the pink-nosed looter,
You’ll go down in history.
Wow, this took a lot of skill from me. Anyways, have a great time and see you soon!
