Pixelitis Picks: Best in-game gambling minigames

"Something about impressionable children and gambling being a horrible addiction has changed the amount of gambling we see in our games.

Much like the candy cigarettes of our childhood, they have slowly faded from memory; some mature-rated games may still throw in some roulette or poker, but anything rated for a younger audience probably won’t feature any slot machines these days.

It’s kind of a shame, really. We here at Pixelitis grew up with gambling in our games and haven’t turned into casino junkies (except for Karen. She has a mean Pachinko addiction). Some of us have a lot of nostalgia for gambling minigames of yore, and we’re dedicating this week’s Picks to those childhood afternoons spent waging our hard-earned Gil to afford that slick new piece of equipment."

Why u no Blitzball! I loved triple triad in FF8 then Tetra master came for FF9 and that game was so complicated to master.

Blitzball isn't exactly a gambling minigame.
