Golf Story – Why it’s very N64

Posted on October 4, 2017 at 3:24 am

If you’ve played Golf Story, then you’ll probably know that it’s very clearly inspired by Mario Golf on the Game Boy Color, which shares similarities with the original N64 game. It’s a really nice throwback to vintage gaming, but it’s actually incredibly weird and we’ll explain why. Firstly, the biggest trait of this game is its canny sense of humour. There’s not much of an actual plot, beyond wanting to be a professional golfer, but getting there involves a lot more than just playing golf for a very long time. So you find yourself starting conversations with cavemen and peculiar characters, so this really isn’t a golfing game in that sense. It’s designed to be fun, weird and quirky and that’s exactly what you get. If you’re looking for a friendly game that will keep you entertained and amused, you may want to try Golf Story, it really is a barrel of laughs.
