Top 10 Dreamy Video Games

 

  

Cordova, TN; July 28, in the year of our Lord 2014--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is looking at the top ten dreamy video games. You might also think of this as the top ten sleep related video games. These are entire games that are dreams. These are games where the main characters are asleep. These are games where there are entire dream worlds. Role playing games and Nintendo reign supreme on this particular listing.

10. Dragon Quest VI
Dragon Quest VI is a role playing game with an entire dream world. This is not the first instance of this concept being used in video games. Let alone in a role playing video game. In fact plenty of other games use this same idea. Moving from the real world to the dream world is an interesting concept in Dragon Quest VI. It also allows developers the ability to save space since the same map is used twice in this turn based game. This game was on the Super NES, and Nintendo DS. There are issues families will have with this game.

9. The Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening
Speaking of role playing video games with a light and a dark world. We come to The Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening on the Gameboy. This action adventure role playing game takes Link away from the land of Hyrule. We are put in a dream land that reminds us of what was done with Super Mario Bros 2. Which is coming later in this countdown. In The Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening we do not find out it is all a dream until the end. Or I just gave you a spoiler. You might have guessed it since The Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening is on this list.

8. Final Fantasy X
Final Fantasy X is another role playing game that shocks players at the end. This Playstation 2 home console video game (also remastered on the PS3 and PS Vita) blows our minds away with revelations about specific characters in the ending. Final Fantasy X is a turn based role playing game that leads us to believe everything is normal until we find out certain characters and areas are dreams. There are multiple issues families will have with Final Fantasy X in terms of content.

7. EarthBound
Are we dreaming while we play EarthBound? A lot of EarthBound feels like a bad dream. There is fighting our dark side, going to a dream town, and having to live out bad dreams. This quirky, odd, and strange Super NES video game (that has been ported to other later systems like the Wii U) can give you bad dreams. The sleep related connections to EarthBound are apparent. Please note this game has multiple issues, and is not the most family friendly.

6. Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance
What is real? What is a dream? The Kingdom Heart video game franchise challenges us to unravel that mystery. Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance is one of the better dream related Kingdom Heart video games. This is an action adventure role playing game that is heavily tied into the Disney franchises. Square Enix also included plenty of their Final Fantasy characters. This mixture enhances the dream related aspect to Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance on the Nintendo 3DS.

5. Mario & Luigi Dream Team
How about an entire game where one of the characters is sleeping? That is what we get with Mario & Luigi Dream Team. Luigi is asleep the entirety of this Nintendo 3DS hand held video. Mario & Luigi Dream Team is another role playing game. And it is another video game from Nintendo. They seem to dream a little dream with many of their video games. Mario & Luigi Dream Team is very heavy in the dream related content from start to finish. There is no hiding what this video game world is about.

4. Kirby’s Dream Collection
Kirby’s Dream Collection is a play on words in multiple ways. This home console Wii game (also playable on a Wii U) is a celebration of Kirby’s 20th anniversary. Kirby’s Dream Collection also contains multiple Kirby Dream Land video games. Three of them to be accurate. There is a reason Kirby’s side scrolling action adventure video games feel like a dream. The characters, worlds, and more all feel dreamy. Kirby’s Dream Collection has a real sleepy feel to it as well. There are six entire Kirby related video games in Kirby’s Dream Collection. Half of them have the full dream connection.

3. Nights into Dreams
If you have any lengthy gaming knowledge whatsoever you had to expect some Nights game. Nights into Dreams is the one we picked for this article. In this Sega Saturn home console video game (ported to the PS2, PC, XBLA, and PSN) will take you into the dream world. Be warned though - Nights into Dreams will also take you into nightmares. Christmas Nights deserves an honorable mention due to its connection to Nights and the wonderful holiday - Christmas.

2. Super Mario Bros 2
Super Mario Bros 2 is considered to be one of the most difficult Super Mario video games of all time. It is also the game that takes us into a dream world. We can play as Mario, Luigi, Toad, or Princess Peach.This 8-bit NES home console video game has been ported to multiple systems years later. Bowser is not the end boss in Super Mario Bros 2. Instead we face a giant frog character named Wart. The dream land aspects of Super Mario Bros 2 run deep in the story from start to finish.

1. Little Nemo The Dream Master
Capcom earns the top spot with their 8-bit NES release Little Nemo The Dream Master. From start to finish this game lets us know we are in a dream. We are playing with a young boy in the dream world. He can ride different animals by feeding them candy. Little Nemo The Dream Master is a side scrolling 2D action adventure video game. Before the Disney Pixar fish related movie, Little Nemo meant the dream master. To gamers, and non gamers alike. To Family Friendly Gaming Little Nemo The Dream Master is the best dream related video game.
