By Clark DeVitis | July 27th, 2014
In today’s gaming world, it’s hard to think of many games that can be so easy to pick up and play casually, yet be so difficult to master. In fact, finding many games like this throughout all of the generations is no easy task. To me, it is something that can be extremely difficult to achieve for game developers, but when it is, can provide some of the deepest gameplay experiences we can imagine; allowing the well-practiced to show off their hard-earned skills to newcomers. Super Monkey Ball 2 for the Nintendo Gamecube is one of these games that has achieved the huge gap between the regular player, and the veteran.

I remember the day I turned six, and walked out onto my back deck in summer of 2001. I was having a Dragon Ball themed party, because it (along with Sonic) was my favorite thing in the whole world. I had owned a Sega Genesis, a gift from my cousin who is the other editor of this site, and fell in love with Sonic at a very young age. But until this birthday, I had never seen any new games since the Genesis era and did not know how much they had progressed. It all changed that day, when after all my preceding presents, my parents pulled out a Sega Dreamcast from behind their chair.
