TYF Column: What We’ve Been Playing August ’16


Thomas Cregge is playing “NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams” (Wii)

It’s a not-so-well known game by Sega. The plot features a boy and a girl having nightmares and they soon find themselves in a dream world, where they meet our titular character and adventure throughout their dreams and as they battle nightmares, they find each other and love. You may recognize the gameplay from just about any other Sega or Sonic the Hedgehog you’ve ever played. The plot may be repetitive for any Sega fan, but it does get pretty deep, somewhat psychological, and some of the sweeter moments that just hit you right in the feels! In a typical Sega fashion, with what they lack in a limited gameplay, and a somewhat recycled plot, they more than make up for in their soundtracks and musical scores! The songs and music is just so wonderful, from soft, gentle scores that you could fall asleep to, to the lyrics that make you want to fall in love all over again, it makes playing the game worth it just to listen to all the music! Recommended for anyone just looking for a new game to try, or anyone who loves game music!
