I started playing video games as an adult in 2008 when my husband, Ben, got me playing Portal. It started with just PC games but when I got the opportunity to work for Nintendo on a DSi promotion I realized I had to have one. One of the games we showed at the event was Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. I got my DSi and started accumulating games, beginning with some basics like Crosswords and Brain Age. One of the packs I got included the first in the series, Professor Layton and the Curious Village. It was hard not to love the game. It was challenging while still being enjoyable, with some of the most beautiful cut scenes I have ever seen. It became the second game I ever beat and one of my all time favorites. Since then, I’ve acquired and beaten every single Professor Layton game and even watched the movie! I had to get a 3DS just for the latest one, but it was well worth it!
One of my favorite parts of this game is that it challenges you to use your mind and really think about the solution, and it might make you feel a little dumb sometimes, but it’s never impossible! You always know there’s a solution just waiting to be found.
There are currently 5 Layton games released in the states right now, with a 6th coming soon! I definitely suggest it for anyone that loves puzzles and a beautiful storyline! Go play :)
