I beat Yume Nikki tonight after starting it many times over at least 10 years. Everybody always said to not use a guide, but those people are full of bullshit. I did my time wandering, looked up a guide and I'm glad I was able to see it through to the end because it lead me to uboachan which is how I found this chan. I used to browse /v/ and considered myself quite the game critic but ironically, trying to put games into a box and compare them to one another can be so immature. Yume Nikki had none of the traditional game design elements I find in enjoyable games, yet it is very cool and interesting. Can't really judge it like one would with most other games.
My love for games has come rushing back to me. Even though I am young, women have really lost their luster to me. marijuana and other drugs are straight up bad for health and mind. swallowingredpills all day was making me manic and paranoid. I just wanna play videogames. To those with gaming fatigue, you should try playing something you PHYSICALLY out of your comfort zone. Play Switch on a park bench or friends house. visit your grandparents and set up a genesis in their den. your current setting might be bumming you out. Just like a time and place makes a movie viewing memorable, its the same with games.
Sonic and Knuckles almost qualified for my most recently finished game, but I gameover'd at the last sequence. Beat Super metroid, a new indie metroidvania called PSYCRON, and am going to start metroid Fusion tomorrow all to prep for DREAD coming out. Try a castlevania this halloween season like SotN or AoS. You won't regret it.
