i sincerely don’t understand popular video games that have been released in recent years. I used to game quite a bit, as much as any bored high schooler. but seriously, games are starting to lose their appeal. I thought that it might have been the fact that I’m getting older, or that I’d rather sit around and write and draw random shit, but recently I started playing this game called Demon’s Souls. AND IT HAS CONSUMED MY LIFE. I swear to god, I have nightmares about this game. I toss and turn in my bed, as the horrific memories of my countless deaths re-emerge from the darkest pits of my mind. Okay, hahah, I’m exaggerating a bit (a bit!), but to describe this game in one word, I’d have to go with: OMFG. This is a difficult, dark and daunting game. It is simply unforgivable. If you mess up once, it could mean death, and another 15 minutes of your life wasted. I won’t go into details, but this game… THIS FUCKING GAME… I sit down and play this thing and before I know it, 4 hours have passed. Four hours I could have spent on something productive and fun. But nope, I’m playing this torture simulator. I’ve tried playing popular video games like Grand Theft Auto 5 and CoD and Battlefield, but these games can’t convince me to pay attention to them for more than 10 minutes. I’d rather be chilling in a dark basement with my dog and engross myself into this dark fantasy world. I felt like I needed to write this post the moment I found myself thinking about the game while at a house party. The music and the people could not distract me from the horror this game has wrought over me.
i’m looking forward to the sequel!
