I finally returned Persona Q since I hadn’t touched it in months and it was just costing me 16 bucks a month to just sort of have it there in case I got the urge. It’s not that I didn’t like it, but in the end it felt sort of very boxed in and I got bored with the grind. That being said, I will always love a game that lets me draw my own map (I’m looking at you Etrian.)
That being said, most of the games I’m getting from GameFly aren’t even for my PS4 (which my dad got me for Christmas and is a lovely thing but lesbionest the amount of suitable RPGs that won’t make me hurk from simulation sickness are slim.) Right now, I’m waiting for Majora’s Mask to show up, which leads me to a confession…
While I’ve been gaming for like… 25 years or some shit like that, there were dark periods in my gaming education in which I couldn’t afford a new system or game and fell behind on what was considered tops at the time.
I never played Majora’s Mask before this.
And that goes for most of the Zelda games in that general era. Not for lack of desire or anything like that, but simply because I didn’t have the system or couldn’t afford them.
Some games never got to fall by the wayside because of my obsession — Suikoden chief among them, which any of you who actually know me is one of my favourite series ever — but Zelda, the Tales series, and things like that have spotty positions in my history.
I realise it’s a bit taboo (and possibly illegal — shit ) to talk about emulation, but I have managed to get Dolphin to work and emulate Tales of Symphonia, which I never played when it was new, but am enjoying playing now… but it makes me feel sort of embarrassed.
I have, in the past, given shit to people who try to give me shit for being a ‘girl gamer’ — a distinction I’m not happy with anyway because my tits have nothing to do with gaming — and try to question my status, as it were. I understand there are these splotchy periods for everyone, but if you’re calling me an attention whore who doesn’t really know games when that’s not really the truth… I might get a bit cunty at you and that’s just how it is; it’s not you, it’s me, really.
But in all seriousness, the things I’ve missed have always been a sort of annoyance for me, because I do want to play these things an experience them… now that they’re doing the remakes for the 3DS it’s becoming easier for me, and if I could get a NEW 3DS and play those, it’d be even better… but they come in stages. I’m lucky to have what I have and am not going to start getting overtly greedy.
So as it stands, yes, I haven’t played the majority of the newer Zelda games, but I’m sort of working on and am eager to actually have something to say about them, whether positive or not.
Majora’s Mask should be here tomorrow, mail willing.
