52 Games - Speed
Topic no. 6 is out and I figured: Everyone seems to think that Speed is the same as fast. But why is that? Indeed, it’s understandable that most of us think about fast action, games, which are about goevenfaster. Breaking through the sound barrier in Xtreme-G 2 was pretty fantastic on the N64, get all the goals within the timelimit in Hanger, the first area of the very first Tony Hawk, or just run through the stages of a Sonic - it’s obvious.
Good that you earn extra points this time if you DON’T mention any racing game and DON’T mention any Sonic. And also good that I’m about to slow down this topic. Today everything is so fast anyway, I need something else sometimes to relax and that’s when I take a short vacation in…

This could be a travel brochure for Animal Crossing. I move into my small house and be happy about the candle on a box and a radio which I get for free. After I take my first steps with helping out at the local shop the friendly-suspect racoon tells me that I should please pay my bills at the post office, and off we go to discover the small world.
