Highline Video Game Club plays everything

By Reuben Gonzales - Staff Reporter



The sound of laughter echoes down the hall, along with screams of agony and defeat.

"I hate you," screams one person

"We can all be friends here," says another.

The music of super Mario World for the WII is playing, with the occasional sound of someone's death.

This is just another typical meeting for the Highline Game Club.

This club is 3 years old and was started by Peyton Hatlen, Eddy Hauser, and James Pak. They started the club as extra credit for their Video Games as Pop Literature class, taught by a professor who has since retired.

The club is very open and anyone who attends is accepted right away.

"The goal has been to have fun," said Peyton Hatlen.

They don't stick to just one single genre or console, but mix up their game play through every meeting.

"Last Thursday we played Monster Prom, it's a brand-new dating sim that is a bit much," said Peyton Hatlen.

"We play board games too," said Eddy Hauser. "We are very spontaneous."

The traffic they tend to get is due to the volume of how loud they get playing games.

"We get a lot of traffic during the winter quarter," said Hauser.

The club will have plenty of games to choose from this coming year with all the new releases that have already been teased and slated for release.

"Duh, of course Smash Bros," said Peyton Hatlen.

"If Jackbox releases another game on us without telling us then that," said James Pak.

The Game Club meets every Tuesday and Thursday 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. Building 8, room 310.
