In many role-playing games, sleep is not actually required at regular intervals. However, there is often the option to sleep, when the player chooses to do so. Which of these is the most common reason that a player would make their character(s) sleep?
To restore health and status fully
To remind the player to put down the game and sleep as well
To progress the storyline
To listen to the sleeping chime
It would be a harrowing feeling to fear falling asleep, yet this mechanism was used by the primary antagonist of 'Alundra', an action-adventure game, to great effect. Townspeople of this game would periodically suffer nightmares, which could injure and even kill if left unchecked. The main character, Alundra, entered these nightmares in order to fight off the demons within them, but which of these female characters within the game, which sounds a little like the Greek goddess of Earth, can also enter dreams?
The use of sleep can allow one to escape and buy some time, which a naive princess in 'Final Fantasy IX' believed was necessary to return home without causing alarm to her friends. At a banquet, she places her fellow comrades (except one) and the hosts of said banquet to sleep, in order to return to her mother and talk to her over her increasingly erratic actions, an ill formed decision. What method is used to cause their slumber?
Spikes their food with sleeping weed
Places them in a hypnotic trance
Casts a spell putting them to sleep
She reads 'War and Peace' aloud starting at the end
Ever imagine being trapped in a dream - literally? In 'Dragon Age: Origins', a creature known as the sloth demon causes the main character and their group to fall asleep, in order to slowly drain their energies in a dream-like place. The dream is pleasant... it is meant to distract the person such that they remain in the demon's vice. Metallica also used one of the key words in the correct answer to partially entitle one of their songs. What is the name of this dreamy place?
The Twilight Zone
The Spirit Canal
Using sleep as a weapon can be effective, but watch it isn't used in retaliation at a later date! In 'Seiken Densetsu 3' (also unofficially known as the sequel to 'Secret of Mana'), which of these is used both in the hostile take-over of the Wind Kingdom of Laurent/Rolante (in fan translation) and in the reclamation of it?
Powder from sleeping flowers
Sword of Mana
In video games, even animals can have interesting connections with sleep. In the popular 'Pokémon' series, which of these Pokémon does NOT have a special relationship with sleep or sleep related abilities?
(Hint: This is Ash Ketchum's favourite Pokémon.)
It's not just humans and animals that sleep in video games. In 'Final Fantasy VII', an entire location is slumbering! The main group require a Lunar Harp to wake this 'place' up - can you identify it from this list?
If you wood like a hint, I'm afraid you're not getting one.
Could you imagine being manipulated within your dreams - without even realising it? Most of the previous events of one certain game, even before the timeline the player acts in, have been dictated by a demon who poses as a cute girl and influences humans in their dreams to do her bidding. Which of these games, known for its heavy use of wild west themes, houses this wicked dream-demon?
Wild Arms 3
"... and then he woke up, and it was all just a dream" - This is one of the cheap story book clichés which many would consider a huge cop-out for valid storytelling. Yet, a similar type of story was used in a certain game from within the 'Legend of Zelda' series, and it was used well. Can you identify the aforementioned game from this list?
A Link to the Past
Ocarina of Time
Sometimes, we just want to sleep and be left alone. After snapping and breathing fire incessantly in previous games within the 'Mario' series, a well known enemy is taking some time out to nap. Which of these enemies in 'Super Mario 64', known for their sharp teeth and red and white colouring, might snap if Mario awakens it?
