In Topic: When was the last time you played?

14 July 2010 - 11:29 PM

I usually end up playing this game in small bursts every couple of months. Just recently I picked it up again... as it's usually a staple in the living room and not locked away in the bedroom. I have the old one, my Saturn, and hell, I even have the port for PS2 released a couple of years ago... but something about the new one fills me with unbridled joy that when I'm feeling stressed from work and commuting, I just sit down and play a couple of rounds... sometimes I even start the whole thing over and go through to see if I can best my score. I adore score attack games... especially this series.

I'm going to go so far as to say that I prefer it over the old one... not that there's anything wrong with the old one, I have a lot of respect and love for it, it just seems to me like the new one has more... flavor? If that makes sense. I actually have more empathy and understanding of the two kids in the 2nd one because their anxieties are a little more fleshed out and in alignment with my own.

Not to mention I had completely forgotten it had been released and I saw it in Seattle by complete accident during Christmas shopping extravaganza 2007. It was a pleasant surprise. (:
