My Love for NHL video games

My Love for NHL video games

It all started with NHL ’94 on the Snes (Super Nintendo) I was about 8 years old and wasn’t very good holding a controller. I was so ecstatic to play a Hockey game since I was a big hockey fan at a young age. Growing up on a farm I never really had the chance to play organized hockey, but I had a video game coping with the loss. I remember using my favourite team at the time, the Montreal Canadiens, I wasn’t super good and first but i think i caught up quickly cause I never stop playing the game. The next 3-4 years I play NHL ’94 then move to ’96 which was mostly the same thing except with shout outs. A few years later the N64 made it’s way to my house, with my own money since my parents didn’t believe in having a second Nintendo. I remember looking at the graphics of NHL ’99 and be like: “Holy Shit this game looks so realistic”. Finally, in 2001, our family welcomes our first PC (then the other PC’s were coming from my pockets). I was playing NHL 2001, where I was open to the world of modifications…

Adventures of Rug Burn: The Vaults

Adventures of Rug Burn: The Vaults

Talk about awe inspiring. Here I walk past the splendor of the dais that Lord Neverember is standing upon. Does he even look at me? Not a chance. He’s too self absorbed to notice one as lowly as me. To test my theory I flip him the bird as I walk by. Not a flinch from either him or his guards. I hear a gasp from the crowd but that’s about it. I smirk as I saunter past. No one challenges me as I push open the doors to the vaults and walk in. Shouldn’t there be more security here?
