Mik’s Top 25 All Time Favorite Video Games #15-11


secretofmana-iphone#15  Secret of Mana

A nice mix between Final Fantasy and Zelda for Super Nintendo. Cozy colors, nice environments and some really odd features here and there. I like that you can switch freely between the cute little characters and there’s real time combat, which provides variation and freedom of choice. It’s not a hugely original game, or not the most difficult one, but it has this special charm and atmosphere that makes me go back to it over and over again.

Reggie’s (Plantera7′s) Top Nonmetal Things of 2011


Other than metal, I do have other entertainment interests.  This is why this (best of) list is titled Top 10 Nonmetal Things of 2011.  I am sure you have other interests outside metal. What are they?  This list includes anything that has piqued my interest throughout the year.  In some cases, the item may not be a specific new release in 2011, but was new to me this year.

10. Pirate Latitudes

This is the book that Michael Crichton never had published.  The reason for that is because it doesn’t meet the expectations of his later works.  I think this might have been one of his first attempts at a novel that got shelved for many years.  After he died it got some help and was released.  It’s basically a pirate story from the depths of the dirty pirate-ridden Caribbean hundreds of years ago.  There is no scientific message or anything that makes you go hmmmm, like you would see in Prey, Timeline, or Jurassic Park.  It’s just a story; I like it, but also the only book I read this year that didn’t have anything to with music.

10. Stephen King

I don’t know how I kept myself away from reading Stephen King for over 30 years, especially since A. I usually enjoy the movies his books are turned into, and B. The Dark Tower.  After reading a couple of his books this year (Tommyknockers and starting The Dark Tower) I know I will be backtracking quite a bit with his gargantuan catalog of novels.  Any suggestions?
