Super Mario Sunshine (by : Nathaniel)

     Super Mario Sunshine is a game where you shoot at paint with a water gun. Mario is in trouble for paint spots all over the island. Mario didn't paint the spots, but everyone thinks he did, which is why he has to clean them.
    Like Mario 64 this game has levels where you collect coins and stars. In this game the stars are called shine spites. Yoshi can be found in this game and like always he is very helpful. The water gun can get upgrades throughout the game and that is helpful as well.
     My favorite thing in the game are the upgrades to the water gun, riding Yoshi, and the levels. I found the bosses to be hard, so that was my least favorite part. All in all it's an awesome game, and one of my favorites. This game can be found for the Nintendo Gamecube.

Minecraft (by : Zachary)

     Minecraft is my current favorite game. It's a great game because you can do whatever you want in it like, building, crafting, mining, and exploring.
     Minecraft is a block based sand box game that is capable of multiplayer or solo play. The game can be played in Creative mode or Survival. Creative mode is where it seems the most like a sand box game, because you have an unlimited supply of all of the blocks and building materials you could ever want. You have no danger of dying and you can fly. Survival mode is more like a normal video game. You are still free to craft and build whatever you want, but you have to go and get the materials, this along with surviving against enemies and dealing with hunger. The mine goal of survival is to defeat the Ender Dragon.
     One of my favorite things in Minecraft is red stone. Red stone is an ore that can be found by mining. you can do so must with red stone, build machines and contraptions. It's amazing what some people come up with using red stone, and to find out what you can build with it, all you have to do is search online.
     My favorite part about the game is the servers. It's great to play with others online, and try out all of the fun server games. Minecraft is a game that I would recommend to everyone, because I feel like anyone could have fun playing it no mater what their gaming personality is.
     Minecraft can be downloaded on your pc, and cost around $25. The game can also be found for the X-box 1, X-box 360, Playstation 3, and Playstation 4.

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (by : Darien)

     The story of Sonic The Hedgehog 2 is very simple. Dr Eggman captures Sonic's friends and turns them into robots to build the Death Egg and take over the world. It is your job as Sonic to free your friends and stop the Death Egg from ever being built.
     Each stage is split into two acts. In act one you have to get to the end of the stage and touch the sign post. In act two you get to the end and fight a boss. The boss can be pretty easy if you know the pattern the bosses like to take.
     There are three playable characters, Sonic, Tails and Knuckles. Each character can jump and do the spin dash. Tails can fly in the android app download version on the game.
     In every act if you earn fifty rings you can jump into a circle of rings at the check point. You are then teleported to a bonus stage where you have to collect rings in a 3D environment, where if you collect enough rings you get a chaos emerald. Having fifty rings can also grant you the ability to become invincible and run super fast if you are playing as Sonic or Knuckles.
     This game is one of my favorites. I love to play it and I would highly recommend it to anyone. This game can be found for the Sega Genesis, and it is also a download app for most devices like phones, and kindles.
