Welcome to a sister article to In The Games Corner that is about computer games but with a different spin. I have been playing computer games from a very young age and I find that some games when I think of them are attached to very strong memories. So, I thought it would be fun to share memories that I have attached to some of these games as there are a few. I wanted to call this feature Memory Card because a lot of my memories that i have strongly are around the Playstation 1 and there will be a few around that particular card. Today we take a look at Nintendogs
I have spoken already on this article about Tamagotchi and how it was addictive to play a game that you had to look after, although I did mention that there were limitations as to how you interact with them. Well, in 2005, Nintendo released a game that became everyone’s addiction and lead to everyone wanting a Nintendo DS – Nintendogs.
The Nintendo DS was a completely different sort of handheld game console where you could use a stylus to interact with a second screen and that is what made the gaming experience with the dogs so unique – it allowed you to feel like you were actually playing with the dogs.
In Nintendogs you get to choose what breed of puppy you get and then spend the time feeding them, washing them, playing with them, training them and entering them into competitions. The fact that you could use the stylus to feel like you are stroking them and playing with them was a big improvement from games that were like this before this game was released.
It was a game that was really fun and also very addictive to play, you would always want to spend lots of time playing with the puppies and training them up. If you left the game for a long time, when you went back to play the puppies would ignore you and you would have to play again to gain their trust.
