Ever wonder what some of the most emo games and game systems might be?
8.) Original 8 bit Nintendo Games (NES)
Ah.. The old school games. I know like 10 people with the NES consoles, and I personally have an Atari (so awesome). Playing any other new console is just lame. Don’t conform and pay $60 for a game when you can get games for $2.
Some games to check out: Mario, Legend of Zelda, Bomber Man, Duck Hunt.. There are hundreds of original games worth checking out, and quite a few that are total crap.
Wait.. you don’t actually need the console to play old school nintendo games: Online 8 Bit NES Games (play them online, though it’s no where near as fun and hardly emo) For the older people reading this, check out the list of all 810 NES games for some good memories.
7.) Halo Trilogy (Master Chief)
Locked in a fight with the “world consuming” Covenant, Master Chief is left alone on an Earth like planet fighting to save the human race.
Let’s face it, Master Chief was incredibly emo. To the left, you can see what the Master Chief REALLY looks like with out his helmet on.
You would be emo, too, if you were left to fight the covenant all by yourself. You also can’t deny how insanely addicting Halo 2 and Halo 3 are
6.) Guitar Hero / Rock Band
How could I talk about the games of a music genres culture without mentioning Guitar Hero or Rock Band. Screw playing real instruments when you can form a band and perform alone from the comfort of your own room. I honestly love Rock Band right now. It’s a little lame, but it’s seriously one of the most fun new games I have gotten my hands on this year.
Every computer has it. It’s boring. It’s lame. It’s addicting. It’s actually emo.
4.) Forum Games
Playing forum games is incredibly emo. From one liners, to interactive stories and RPG’s (see Gaia Online). It’s easy, simple, and you don’t have to know how to do anything but type.
3.) Kick the Can
Gaming on a budget? Want everyone to know how scene you are? Go outside and try a good ol’ game of kick the can! The game is simple, and to anyone passing by you will look extremely depressed, desperate, and endlessly bored.
The rules are simple: Kick a Can.
2.) The Sims 2
Have you ever found yourself sitting in your room, using The Sims to build a new world, one that isn’t so cruel, where your parents can’t control you, a place where everyone understands you, a happy place? Your so scene.
The Sims provide an escape to a different world. The Sims is also crack. If you start playing it, you will be stuck there forever. It’s comparable to the addictiveness of World of Warcraft. I don’t play World of Warcraft, but from what I have seen they are both games that you should avoid like the plague, unless you want to waste a whole, whole lot of your free time. I’m warning you. Touch either of these games, and you will never ever have free time again.
1.) Hide and Go Seek
What could possibly be more emo than playing hide and go seek, by yourself?
