As Tempest was reacclimating to pony society, Twilight bought her an old Super Neightendo console to fill her newfound free time and recall her pre-exile childhood.
Tempest was teary-eyed at such a thoughtful gift (she had wanted one as a filly, but only ever played at her friends' houses), and enjoyed her classic favorites like Super Mare-io Sisters and Sonic the Diamond Dog.
Tempest never got very good at her games, but it was something she could retreat to when she was overwhelmed by her newfound social anxiety.
Rainbow Dash once tried to show Tempest a modern game, namely Call of Hoofy. Sadly, the death and violence triggered her PTSD and sent her into a shaking, crying fit. That night, Twilight stayed by Tempest's bedside while she wimpered and licked at her scars.
She enjoys finding old game cartridges in garage sales, and has a chiptune album on her hayPod. She also owns a baseball cap with Bowser's logo on it.
