Red_Dragon_King doesn't currently have any campaigns.
I can’t really remember how I started playing games, because I was very young at that time. My father always said that it all began, when I watched him playing Wario’s Woods on the NES. He even showed me a photo of him playing and me watching. I think I was about one year old at that time.
The time when I played a game on my own was then, as my sister got a Nintendo 64 and Super Mario 64. I was always fighting with her, because I wanted to play but she didn’t let me most of the time. So I ended up getting a Nintendo 64 for myself. I was 2 or 3 years old back then. Another game we played a lot on the Nintendo 64 was The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It was actually the game from my cousin but we had it the most time. We didn’t come further than the third dungeon till much later.
In Christmas 1999 I got a Gameboy Color with Pokémon Red! I remember the first time I played it, I didin’t know that I needed to save, so I wondered why I needed to start the game again from the beginning. Another moment I remember is, when I finally finished Mt. Moon, my sister came to me and said I played to much and turned off my Gameboy. I hadn’t the chance to save… I beaten that game dozens of time and I remember a time, when I had entered the Hall of Fame over 100 times on one savefile. Some other games I played on my Gameboy were, of course, Tetris and also Pokémon Pinball.
I also played some new Nintendo 64 games. Mario Kart 64, Mario Golf 64, Mario Party 1 & 2, Pokémon Stadium, Yoshi’s Story, a Turok game and Beetle Adventure Racing were the games I played. I especially remember Beetle Adventure Racing. I played that game a lot with my father, the Multiplayed in that game is very funny. It’s a bit like Mario Kart in that mode. You can use weapons and so on but the cars are real ones. In the Singleplayer mode I never managed to beat the third level. Only the first two which you can always play in Quickplay. I really had a good time playing games back then. I also had plenty of time because I didn’t have school yet. I still own that Nintendo 64 from then but I don’t have a single game for it anymore. I gave every single of them away.
In the year 2001 I think I got Pokémon Gold as a present. I loved that game and I’m still loving it. At first I didn’t come far in it. I didn’t even managed it to get to Violet City for some reasons. I beat the game many times. I still own it but the internal clock doesn’t work anymore so time related events are hard to solve.
The time flew by and 2002 the Gamecube was released and I got one with Fifa World Championship 2002. The game isn’t the best but it was still fun playing together with my father. With the time I got more and more for the Gamecube. Super Smash Bros. Melee, Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, Super Mario Sunshine, Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and on my birthday 2003 I got The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Even in the limited edition with the Ocarina of Time & Master Quest bonus disc. That game had a big inpact on me. I played it a lot and also with my sister. We got to the point, where you have to collect all the Trifforce shards but we didn’t beat it. That was a big problem with me back then I had so much games but I beat none (except the Pokémon games).
With the Ocarina of Time bonus disc my sister and I had the chance to play it again and beat it this time. But we got stuck again in the third dungeon. Luckily her boyfriend at that time was also a dedicated gamer and knew the game fairly well. We three then continued playing the game and finally conquered the third dungeon (nowadays that dungeon is no problem for me). We easily went through the next two dungeons and then just before the Water Temple my sister went on a excursion. But I wanted to continue in the game, so I played it on my own and I beat the Water Temple. It’s the first thing in a game that I beat on my own and would continue with the time. Then my sister came back and we continued playing but we got stuck just before the dessert. That was it for that time.
Meanwhile I got a the Gameboy Advance from my aunt with Konami’s Krazy Racers and Super Mario Advance. I liked the handheld and then I got a Gameboy Advance SP one day and also Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire. Like the other Pokémon games I played these two to death. But with I also gave those games away for some reasons…
2006 I finally decided to play again The Wind Waker and managed to beat it. That was an awesome day. To this day The Wind Waker is my favorite game and I think that won’t change soon.
I think also in 2006 I got a Nintendo DS with Yu-Gi-Oh! Nightmare Troubadour. At that time I still liked Yu-Gi-Oh! The DS was amazing back then, because of its two screens. With the time I got some new games but the Wii was something I was more interested in.
In February 2007 I got the Wii and of course Wii Sports. It crazy but there were days, when I played Wii Sports 9 hours a day! But that finished as I got The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess at the end of the month. I was amazed at the graphics and the content of the game. I went fairly fast through it but got stuck in the Snow Ruins. I even restarted my game because I thought I glitched my game at the last block puzzle there. But then I managed to beat it.
In 2007 I got some other Wii and DS games including Sonic & the Secret Rings, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and Super Mario Galaxy. I was a bit disappointed by Sonic & the Secret Rings but the other two games are masterpieces. I beat Phatom Hourglass in 3 days! And Super Mario Galaxy didn’t took long to beat either and in early 2008 I beat it with Mario & Luigi.
2008 was the release of two much anticipated games from me Mario Kart Wii and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Mario Kart Wii may not be the best Mario Kart game but it’s a game that I almost play every time when I’m playing with my father or sister. I got Super Smash Bros. Brawl on my birthday and way very excited to play it, because I waited the last 3 years for it. And then I popped it into my Wii and then I found out the can’t be read from the drive. I thought it was a problem with the game so I traded it for a new copy. That copy didn’t work either so I gave it completely back and bought Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock instead. I spent many, many hours with that game. At first I was a noob on Easy but with the time I got better and better. A year later I completed Through the Fire and Flames on Expert.
Later in the summer I deciding to try another copy of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, because I thought only the first batch of the game didn’t work properly. But it didn’t work aswell. So I sent in my Wii and was two weeks without it. They sent me a new Wii because the drive of old one couldn’t read dual-layer discs. The new Wii arrived on the first Saturday in my Fall Holiday. That meant three weeks nonstop playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I almost spent every day playing that game 12 hours in average. That game is full with stuff. I still haven’t completed it to this day.
The next few years I bought game for game, both for Wii and DS, including Guitar Hero: World Tour, Metallica and On Tour, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, Super Mario Galaxy 2. Sonic Rush Adventure, Sonic Unleased, and other great games. I also managed to beat Ocarina of Time around that time.
2009 I picked up again a Pokémon game. Pokémon Platinum. That was also a game I invested much of my time in and it got my favorite Pokémon game. In 2012 I managed to complete the Pokédex. That’s the first time I managed that in a Pokémon game.
In 2010 I got my first PC and Internet! Now I was always up-to-date in terms of game releases. Donkey Kong Country Returns was the game of the year for me! It’s one of the best Wii games and Jump ‘n Run games in general.
2011 marked the release of two big things for me. The NIntendo 3DS and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. The 3DS was released in March but I got it on my Birthday together with The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. I had no problems with the games I beat it fairly fast and also the Master Quest was no problems. Since I beat Ocarina of Time the first time I replayed it a lot.
In November Skyward Sword was released and I got it one week after the realease. I loved the game and beat it over the time of two weeks. It’s on place two of my top 10 games list together with Ocarina of Time. For Christmas I got Super Mario 3D Land and a week later Mario Kart 7 both are amazing games. Super Mario 3D Land is my second favorite Mario game and Mario Kart 7 my second favorite Mario Kart game.
In 2012 I didn’t got a lot of games. The main attraction was the Wii U but I also got Kid Icarus Uprising and The Last Story. Both are extreamly awesome games and they are both very high placed on my favorite games list. On my birthday I got a Smartphone, a Samsung Galaxy S3 to be exact that replaced my old phone from 2006 or so.
The Wii U was released the 1st of December in Europe and I got it a few days after Christmas. The deluxe bundle together with Nintendo Land. I like the Wii U very much the controller has the right size and everything else is also good.
Now we arrived in the present. I don’t have much money at the moment so I can’t buy a lot of games these days but soon I will earn my own money and then I do plan on getting new games and also rebuying old games I once had and also old games that I didn’t had yet. I want to build up a little game collection.
