…And why didn’t I know about it sooner?
Truth be told, I’ve never been a hardcore gamer. I’ve only beat like maybe four or five games in my lifetime, repeating a few. My favorites are classics which all have the adventure theme in common—Mario, Zelda, Skies of Arcadia, etc. with Ocarina of Time being my favorite game of all time. Ever. Never gonna give you up, Rick Astley style.
Ever since college, I don’t think I’ve played anything but maybe old school Mario and, again, replayed Ocarina of Time (with the exception of The Sims. I freakin’ love The Sims).
Recently, I was telling my sister how much I missed it, and then, Greedfall came across my everywhere (you know how social media likes to do).
From what I understand, it’s set in the 17th century ::history lover orgasm:: revolves around a fictional island ::world builder orgasm:: and includes mysterious ailments, alliances, magic, and monsters.
So, essentially, what this means is:
- I’m going to have to learn how to rest and take breaks. The circles under my eyes can swallow stars.
- We’ve been talking about getting a Switch to leave at my parents’ house for family get-togethers, but I live here #millennial so it’s looking like we’ll also need a PS4.
- I need to ask my brother about
his betrayalthis game because he knows about all things gaming and how dare he.
- I’m going to have to realize working on my craft, as well as helping others develop theirs, for 12 to 15hrs per day is more than enough. Adulting is hard in 2019 with falling interest rates, a burning Amazon rainforest, student loan debt that goes nowhere when you pay it…
Revive the kid in you, man. Let go a little.
…and then pick up a game controller.
