Donkey Kong joins the alumni

Time to see another Nintendo classic off for the time being. As I previously promoed, the next two reviews will not be related to each other or the current trend of the blog, and they will be quite gigantic. Guess what else? I'll be publishing the first one of those two reviews in just a few minutes - you'll see it before you see this. Before that, let's give a round of applause to one of the most memorable video game villains AND heroes in history.

A total of 15 Donkey Kong games have been reviewed since August 2010. The highest rated Donkey Kong game is Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The lowest rated Donkey Kong game is Donkey Kong Jr. Math for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The average rating of all Donkey Kong games is 7.0 (NOTE: Donkey Kong Classics is exempt from the count).

  1. I would just like to say that your game playing stamina amazies me. I'm just playing catch-up now that my life has begin to settle down ... again, but goodness gracious me. You have played and written about a LOT in my absence.

  2. Thanks... I guess :D I feel like I may have slowed down a little, but considering the amount and weight of everything else going on in my life at the moment, I think I've kept up a sufficient pace. If that pace seems fast to someone, that's brilliant.
