TheHighHeeledGamer: A Gaming Advice Column

Welcome to our new contributor from The Athena Alliance — TheHighHeeledGamer — who will be answering questions from gamers in this ongoing column. This month, we’re tackling next gen consoles, new school vs retro games, and more.

Dear H.H.G.,

My partner and I are having problems choosing between next gen consoles. Do you think one is better than the other so far, or is it too early to tell?

Sincerely,
Next Gen Ready

Dear Next Gen Ready,

I think you should get the PS5 and your partner should get the Xbox Series X. That way, you don’t have to choose! If you don’t live together, the two of you can have console date night, and if you do live together, then BOOM — both are in your home.

Sincerely,
H.H.G.

Dear H.H.G.,

I love video games and I love hanging out with my boyfriend, but I often feel like I bore him making him watch me play games. He only ever shows interest in really retro games (SNES and earlier) which is cool, but I’d really like to find a more recent game we could both play together that gives him a lot of time to learn newer mechanics. What games should we play?

Sincerely,
New School Gamer

Dear New School Gamer,

There are quite a few games that are old-school style in this new-school world. Try Crash Bandicoot N’Sane Trilogy, Sonic Mania Plus, Little Big Planet, and any of the Lego games. If that doesn’t work, tell him to buy you a Nintendo Switch so the two of you can play Mario Bros. games.

Sincerely,
H.H.G.

Dear H.H.G.,

Omg! My boyfriend tried to mansplain RAM to me after I made a witty pun, so like, how do I not square up with him right now?

Sincerely,
Tech Queen

Dear Tech Queen, 

If you can find old RAM that is not working, put it on a plate and serve it to him. When he asks, “What’s this?” or, :Why are you giving me this?” Answer, because your memory isn’t working, and you forgot who I am!

Sincerely,
H.H.G.
