Johnny Ketchum’s Top 20 SNES Games
[tps_title]16. Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest [/tps_title]
Released in December, 1995
I distinctly remember getting this game for Christmas, along with my very own SNES and long-sleeve DKC shirt that I wore well into middle school. Up until that Christmas, the SNES I had been playing belonged to my uncle. When I got my own, and a bunch of games he gave me, I was beyond excited. The only thing that bothers me about this game though is its name–Diddy’s Kong Quest. I mean, isn’t Diddy’s name Diddy Kong? So what the hell do they mean Diddy’s Kong Quest?! I don’t know, but all I know is this is still my favorite Donkey Kong Country, and probably the most difficult, and due to its darker moodier color pallet, a little less childish.
