The first Animal Crossing game came out in Japan on April 14th, 2001. The game was titled "Animal Forest" and was release for the Nintendo 64. The US version was renamed "Animal Crossing" and was released for the Nintendo GameCube. Since then, 4 more main games have been released along with a few spin off series. Animal Crossing New Horizons became very popular in 2020 due to it's release around the same time many people were quarantining at home. This real time simulation game allowed people to leave the house virtually and play with friends. What is your favorite Animal Crossing memory?

Pokemon first came as a Nintendo Game Boy game in Japan on February 27th, 1996. The Pokemon game was followed by the trading card game, manga, anime, and merchandise.

The Legend of Zelda was released in Japan on February 21st, 1986. The game's creator, Shigeru Miyamoto, wanted to bring the sense of adventure seen in movies such as Indiana Jones to a video game. The Legend of Zelda featured non-linear gameplay, puzzles, battles, and exploration. This game was the first installment in the Zelda franchise that would be followed by 18 main games, several spin-offs, and many remakes. Which Zelda game is your favorite?

The classic arcade game Street Fighter II was released 30 years ago in February 1991. Street Fighter II kicked off the popularity of fighting games in the 1990s and allowed players to select from multiple playable characters. Each character had a distinct fighting style and special moves. Street Fighter II had the first combo system that allowed players to link attacks the opponent couldn't block. This type of combo system, which started as a bug, is now a standard feature in fighting games.

Check out one of the materials below in honor of Street Fighter II's anniversary!

2020 is finally over and has been a challenging year for everyone. Playing video games became a popular way to pass the time during quarantine. Below is a list of our favorite games CPL staff played last year. What games got you through 2020? What games are you looking forward to playing in 2021?

  • Animal Crossing was a great way to stay connected with friends while being stuck at home. AG
  • Animal Crossing allowed me to connect with people from a distance. AY
  • This was my quarantine mainstay; we couldn't go outside much this year, but Animal Crossing brings the fun of interacting with neighbors, decorating, and meeting friends into a digital space. SS
  • I started playing New Horizons during the spring quarantine, and I love it because it is such a fun and relaxing game that brings up fond childhood memories of playing earlier versions on the DS and Wii (Wild World and City Folk). It is a great game for all ages and is perfect to escape the craziness of the world for some bug catching, fishing, and crafting DIY recipes.  KM

Hellblade forced me to face my fears and overcome them through the character of Senua. I do not like scary games and I felt VERY accomplished by completing this game. AG

Also available for Playstation 4.
