I want themmm... especially for games that aren’t easy to get ahold of these days, except on emulator- Pokemon Colosseum and XD come to mind- I don’t have a console that can play them, let alone the games themselves.

What about movie remakes?

Hm... Really depends on the movies.
Disney Live-Action Remakes are a terrible idea, but I wouldn’t mind a Harry Potter remake (well, I would prefer if they remake them into a TV Show, but if they do remake them it would most likely be movie remakes.)

How about book to movie adaptations?

Hard pass, been burned on characters often being terribly miscast and a lot of things narrative-wise being cut to fit into a movie timeframe.

Unskippable cutscenes.

They can be a blessing - a bit of background noise to keep you in The Zone while you make a fresh cup of coffee/grab another beer.

How about Christmas lights displayed outside of the Christmas period?

Go ahead and leave them on! They bring in a great amount of color to the room!
These are getting really specific, so...police procedurals.

Despite loving the outdoors, the Neb Pokemon more frequently participates in introverted hobbies. As a result it has a socially awkward temperment.
With the right writer, they can be more interesting than an intense courtroom drama.

How about Metroidvania games?

Never played that many, however honestly I only recommend really when you have a lot of spare time.

This Pokemon gushes about its girlfriend for hours on end.
The only salad dressing I've tried is blue cheese and I don't really care to try any others. Blue cheese is just too good.

Also, salad without dressing should be a crime.

Whatcha think about Bird Pokemon?

No matter who they are, I will always think of I’m Blue. Nothing against them, but it brings back memories yo.

How do you feel about video games soundtracks?

This Pokemon is infamously irritable, but it comes down from its rage quickly. It is quite loyal to kind, patient Trainers.
I LOVE them! They're probably my favorite type of music, since I usually don't spring for lyrical stuff. I can hate a game or have never played a game and still love its soundtrack. In fact, I think music is the second most important aspect of a game, second only to gameplay itself.

My favorite soundtrack to a game is probably... Mario Galaxy and Galaxy 2.

This was a mistake!
When I was a kid, there was a cough syrup in my country that tasted like a mix of maple syrup and a touch of vanilla. It was amazing and I wanted to be sick so I could drink it. And then I grew old and everything tastes awful and sad. I moved to a different kind of cough syrup, though, cognac (I swear I am not an alcoholic), and it does its job. Guess it makes cough syrups obsolete in my case.

What about movies that are so bad they are good? Like The Room or Birdemic?

This POKéMON is struggling to figure out what interesting stuff he can put into his Pokédex entry.
Can be entirely too problematic. There's a lot of toxic masculinity in these circles, and it makes a lot of gaming YouTubers think they can get away with anything. I'm not gonna name the major examples, but yeah. It's like Hollywood, but a lot of the time with even less women. Mostly because there's a certain socioculturally fortified hubris to masculinity, especially on the internet, which makes them think they can do anything.

Do I know what I'm talking about? Probably not. I'm just a guy who thinks they know what's going on, which may in fact be the problem here, and wait am I part of the problem...? Needless to say, my mind's pretty full up on anxiety.

Next take: 1980s teen movies.

It’s great and all but I don’t even want to think about pizza anymore, I’ve had far too much of it lately.

Let’s hear some thoughts about homemade food now

Frequently criticizes inane video game plots, especially those involving spiky haired boys and cats.
My Hot Take: I don't really like coffee. It's too acidic for my tastebuds and the after taste is horrid.

She's like a sea urchin. Tough and prickly on the outside, but delicate and easily wounded if hit the wrong way. Please handle gently.

Fantastic gameplay and Pokémon selection, wonderful to Nuzlocke. The only game I’ve ever nuzlocked past the champion- definitely worth it.
