My sister forced me to go to Target the other day, so I thought I’d check out their games section. It turns out they have THREE distinct gaming sections! Who knew?
Popular Games. This is the section with all the best-selling games that they advertise for. I took a quick look at the three Wii games that were on display: Super Smash Bros. Brawl (crappy!), Super Mario Strikers (what’s next? Super Mario Volleyball?), and Wario World Wii (when you port a GBA game to the Wii, nobody can tell the difference, right?). Oh, and the High School Musical 3 game. Needess to say, I skipped this section.
Discount Games. AKA “games we haven’t sold in the past two years”. They’ve got a good deal on Happy Feet and UNO for the GBA. All you interested gamers should head over before they’re all out, because I have a feeling those games won’t stay on the shelves for long.
PC Games. I had no idea this row of games existed until just now. It is loaded with awesome PC games, and equally awesome B-level PC games. Lots of them are $10, too. Next time I go to Target, I think I’ll pick up a copy of Mysteryville. That’s a game where you go to a village and solve a bunch of mystery puzzles, starring such memorable characters as Adam Sandler, Internet Stalker, and Crazy Scientist. It’s like Professor Layton, except not British. Or Japanese. How can you say no?
