You know what's really lame?

Posted December 30th, 2008 at 6:50 PM by Sammi

So. When I buy a video game, either one of two things happen:

1) I go OMGYAY and get right to playing with it
2) I go OMG WHAT DID I DO??? and don't touch it forever, and when I do, I angst about it for ages before I actually do it.

For example, when I got Pokemon Pearl, I opened it and started playing without a bat of an eye. Pokemon Colosseum, though, I had to sit on the floor and freak out a bit before I eventually made someone push me to the edge to put the game in and actually play it.

The two worst examples, though, are Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney and Final Fantasy X-2. For the former, I really think it was the fact that I honestly didn't know what I was getting into. I was afraid I wouldn't like it, despite everyone insisting that it was really good. (It is, btw, go buy it now.) So, I bought it in June, and didn't play it until November. For X-2, I think it was more the mixed reviews, it seemed. I bought it fall semester last year and didn't play it in the spring, when I had nothing else better to play. How lame.

I'm really surprised I played TWEWY as soon as I did, though. I didn't know how it'd work, but I got to it within a few days. Not the same day, as I had to work when it came.

But yeah. Right now, I'm delaying playing a game, yet again. Today's game? Persona 4. It looks really good, but... I just don't have the motivation to do it.

Isn't that sad? :(

Wait, blog entries have quick edit now? SWEET!

    What is this sudden fad with Persona 4? Has anyone even played the first 4 (including FES)? ;_;

    I was going to buy Persona 3 (FES if I could find it), but they didn't have it at Gamestop. And 4 was there. It really was an impulse buy. This is what happens when I actually have the money. XD;;

    I considered buying FES at the BX over the summer, because, hey, JRPG for $20, but I never did. I think I was put off by the fact that I really didn't know what it was. Shame, because I waaaant it when I can manage it, now that I've seen it played. Probably will get it on Amazon, as I still have $10 from a gift card left over. Either that, or take my stepbrother up on his offer and borrow Persona 3 when he plays FES. I just don't like borrowing games from people hours away, because god knows when they'll get it back.

    I had to be pushed into playing Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World. I got Animal Crossing: City Folk as an x-mas grabbag present, bonked my friend on the head because my brother has it/it's not my kind of game really, went to the store with him (since he didn't like his game), returned them, we got Ookami and Tales and neither of us found them that great. Now that today was the last day we could have brought them back since we opened them, we're stuck with them, so I'm forced into playing through it until I get too addicted to Brawl/Mario Kart/Sonic Olympics to bother with it.

    THANK GOD FIRE EMBLEM: SHADOW DRAGON comes out in February. ^___^ Not to mention Mario Tennis: Wii.

    Have you played the first game?

    I want to try out Dawn of the New World someday. I loooooved Tales of Symphonia, it was my favorite game for AGES. So, I just have to, you know? Only thing is, I don't have a Wii, and I have no plans in getting one anytime soon. Not enough games that I want. :/

    Oh, I have that problem as well. So, don't feel bad. For example, I bought 3 Xbox 360 games a few months ago and I haven't even opened them to play them.

    I think I got like, 20 games that I haven't played at all after I bought them.

    Man I have three games for my DS Lite, I hardly ever touched them. I am trying to get back to playing video games, but I haven't had the energy to do so. I got Mario Kart DS, Naruto: Ninja Destiny, and Chrono Trigger DS. I am getting Pokemon Diamond soon, but of course it just going to sit there just like my other games. D: Work, exercising, and using my computer is eating my time. I will find the time though. But I get what you are saying.
