Didn't expect to find this series here, one more to add to my favorites list.

What about Warhammer 40,000, Fallout 3 and New Vegas, Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, Brutal Legends, and Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway.

Its here I stopped at gears but

Why no Nintendo games?

Twilight's perfect game. :twilightsmile:

One of the classics, now in easily accessible form. Awesome

halo: reach:yay:

Ezn

I remember reading some of this ages ago. I also remember enjoying it, but you could use a proofreading pass.

Biggest issue I can see is dialogue punctuation.

“Reaaaaaaaaal smooth, Spike.” drawled Twilight, her voice literally oozing with sarcasm at every single word.

That full stop after "Spike" should be a comma.

“Geahs of War?” Said Applejack

"Said" should be "said".

Remember: if you follow dialogue with some variation of "said Character", then they're both part of the same sentence, so the dialogue should never end on a full stop (but you can use a question mark or exclamation mark; just don't capitalise "said").

I wrote a whole bunch about this here.

Think I'll read the rest of this story now. It's a fun idea. Thanks for writing it.

Hey, I read the Halo Reach one a while ago, but I didn't know this was a series. This is awesome and its got my favorite. It was a really great read and I'm excited to read more. Is this the original author?

>>456328

I'm aware of that. But they should be explored at some point.

*Looks at chapters*

I don't recognise any of this. The only one I have played here is Tetris.

Fun story. Glad it's here. Especially liked the Rock Band chapter.

BEST.

CHAPTER.

YET.

This is THE best book I've ever read.

PERIOD.

Man i remember reading this along time ago, cool to see it up here.

This is beyond awesome. Being an avid gamer and having played at least over half of the games mentioned, I say you did a great job with conveying the Mane 6's reactions. Also :pinkiecrazy: and :flutterrage: are best ponies.

dude, make another halo, except that they face the flood.

by the way...CUPCAKES!!!:pinkiecrazy:

Half-Life 2:pinkiehappy: Please?:ajsmug:

Tiberium wars was such a good addition to the C&C series...  I really enjoyed that game.  :twilightsmile:  

Though it's a shame Tiberium Twilight had to go and ruin the whole thing...:twilightangry2:

>>456283 Yep, it's the original author here, but one of the writers of the team left due to a heavy workload and schedule, so our production is sort of on hiatus right now. I've recently gotten inspiration for an Asura's Wrath chapter, so let's just hope I'll be able to write it without my co-author's help, heh.

>>457972More nintendo games please?:duck:

Oh gee i wonder where the crowbar came from?:ajbemused:  Anywho another great and funny chapter! I need to hurry up and get back to reading it HAHA!

Hopy Shiquita :twilightoops:

Twilight plays Tetris like a boss.

Glad to see this series is now on FIM. That way it'll be easier to track this story.

And now for requests, I have one game that will soooooo fit in this series.

Mario Party. This will test Friendship and could tear it apart easily.

If you need help on this game, check out some videos on Youtube. That could be useful since you apparently don't have any Nintendo Console games, correct?
