Fireworks in Video Games

Posted by Michael Koczwara On July - 5 - 2011 1 Comment

Americans had their fair share of fireworks celebrating their country’s independence yesterday, but what about the rest of the world? Holidays aside, everyone can, in fact, enjoy fireworks, but in a very different way. Here are just some examples of impressive firework displays shown throughout video games.

Super Mario

Since the very beginning, Mario has been spouting out fireworks left and right. Whether he is playing golf, throwing a party or just saving the princess again, the dang fireworks keep reappearing. I just want to know who is in charge of all this.

Being stealthy is one thing, but being stealthy in the midst of a Chinese New Year’s celebration is another. None other than Sam Fischer gets to enjoy the fireworks show as he makes his way up the tower.

 

Sims 3

In a game where flushing the toilet is an essential element necessary to make it through the day, fireworks are expected to be shown in some form. As expected, the Sims 3 deliver, with a display that any sim can enjoy.

  

Pikmin

As you are searching for your missing space ship parts, the last thing you would expect are fireworks. Having Captain Olimar lay down near the Pikmin will cause them to lift you up and carry them over to their Onion nests. Of course, a firework or two will burst out of the top, leaving a satisfying effect.

 

And a few more…

One Response so far.

  1. Most games I never played had fireworks, I’ve only known from Super Mario games and Pikmin, and one other title that was for GCN: Scooby Doo: Night of 100 Frights. A nice listing to have after the day of American Independence.
