Poker Night at the Inventory - PC Games
Release Date: November 22, 2010 (NA)
Publisher: Telltale Games
Developer: Telltale Games
If this game contained more characters than the four it has, then I'd be giving this a much better score. Unfortunately, it doesn't. But even with only four characters, this game is worth playing, if only to experience the communication and interactions that the characters have with each other. It makes you feel like you're playing a game of poker with friends instead of being in a tournament with a bunch of strangers. I found myself not skipping through hands that I had folded in simply because I wanted to listen in on a conversation that had started. The small number of characters in the game mixed with some very poor AI hinder the game as a whole, but not enough where the overall personality of the game doesn't shine through. If you're a fan of poker and/or any of the four characters found within, then I highly recommend giving this game a try.
Peek-a-Boo Poker - Famicom and NES
Release Date: 1990 (JP)
Genre: Casino - Adult
Peek-a-Boo Poker is probably the most...graphic, maybe...of the adult games on the NES. By graphic, I mean that the nudity actually looks like nudity. When you have over $2000 in winnings and Double Dealing Debbie is shown with her top off, you can easily tell what's what....Which is mostly why I didn't post a screenshot of that here on Listal. That said, the game itself is so-so. It's just one-on-one poker. That's it. It does what it needs to do well enough, but unless you're a die hard fan of poker, or that much of a pervert that you absolutely must see 8-bit boobs, you'll probably get bored fairly quickly here.
American Dream - Famicom and NES
Release Date: September 23, 1989 (JP)
Publisher: Coconuts Japan
Developer: Color Dreams
American Dream is about an egg (I think) going to casinos and gambling away his money at slot machines...Apparently, the Japanese believed that the American dream was getting addicted to gambling and trading in your first-born for a few more chips. But anyway, if you're here just for the slots, the game has you covered. If you'd like a story to go along with it, the main game is like an RPG, as you wander around an overworld map and enter casinos, gambling away. As far as casino-style games go, this is one of my favorites...But that said, I still find video game slot machines to be the most pointless and boring game genre available...However, with the RPG-like wandering and such, it added some much-needed substance to the slot genre, which usually has absolutely none.
Hoyle Slots 2011 - PC Games
Release Date: June 16, 2010 (NA)
Publisher: Encore Software, Inc.
Developer: Encore Software, Inc.
I have never understood the fun in video game slot machines. It's fun to play slots in a real casino 'cause there's a chance that you'll be walking out with more money that you walked in with...With games like Hoyle Slots 2011, you lose money upon purchasing the game, and you can't get that money back. You also can't get your time back that you wasted hitting a button repeatedly waiting for a jackpot to appear. That said, there's a pretty large variety here if you're a slot machine fiend and like different imagery...But in the end, it's the same, repetitive thing just with a new coat of paint. Want a real thrill? Play the video slots at a real casino.
Slot Machine - Atari 2600
Release Date: 1979 (NA)
I don't think that there is any kind of game more pointless than Slot Machine video games. People enjoy playing slots in casinos because of the chance to win money...You can't win money in a slot machine video game at home. When you're playing Slot Machine on the Atari 2600, you don't win anything except the realization that you just wasted your money on a horrible, horrible game. With the chance to win money gone, you're left pressing a button and watching uninteresting designs roll down the screen over and over. Sounds like fun, eh?
Like the "ranked by preference" lists I do for systems, I'm doing for genres now as well. The comments and such are the same as found in those lists, unless the comment(s) were list-specific, in which case, I wrote up a new little diddy for it.
Games will be added regularly as I play 'em.
