i think i need a hug.....or maybe i just need more pokeballs

Postby OmegaTheta » 05 Dec 2009, 19:06

so.... lately i have been playing a lot of video games that people my age generally don't play. Chief example is pokemon though i blame desertbus for that as i required something mindless and trivial to drag me away from the computer where i slowly became a milestone image producing zombie....and not a traditional zombie...i mean one of those fast mothafuckas that pops out of no where...only with completely random pictures....anyway i digress...the point is i got to thinking and i realized the last time i played a pokemon game was during a fairly traumatic segment of my childhood...the more i think about it the more i realize how much video games did to keep me mentally stable...and really more than anything they taught me a lot of things i probably would not have learned normally....but i am also sad cause i remembered all the bad stuff that happened....soo....hugs?

I think I know how you feel I use games now to take me away from my ultra crippling shyness and lack of social circle.

When I had a few years in my childhood where my social relations fell apart, and I was picked on at school, I found solace in FF 7 and 8 (something about stories of loners and their developement felt very familiar). I think I can relate.

*hugs*

When my life fell apart, I found you guys...

No really. 5 funerals, best friend walking out of my life, brother going to prison, and getting dumped in an 8 month period would have really messed me up if it weren't for LRR and the community to keep my mind occupied during my 8 hours of sitting at work with nothing to do but think about how everything I know is rapidly disappearing.

(And considering how messed up I am anyway, that would be bad.)

But when I was a kid, I built things, including games, to keep me busy.

So, *hugs*

Check it out, excessive commas.

Video games are a form of escapism for many, myself included.There are plenty of ways to do it, reading books (Sci-Fi, Fantasy etc etc), films or just straight video games. It's threads like these that remind me of why I game, of course not entirely because of the escapism, but it's a big part of it.

So hugs all round.

Is it just me or are pokemon jokes becoming something of a staple both on the forums and in LRR behind the scenes/RL stuff e.g Desert Bus.
Nothing to see here.

I look back on those days fondly myself... when I had time to play pokemon the amount of time it required and the patience to do so... Charmander char. Charmander char indeed...

You needed something mindless and trivial... to make you stop being a mindless zombie... does anyone else's head hurt thinking about the logic in that statement?

But escapism for the win! I can't play MGS2 without getting weepy like a school girl and the MGS theme still hits a string embedded in the soft parts of my soul. Stupid traumatic grade 10... ruining a decent game and good series with circumstances...

I wish Pokemon could solve my problem right now.
But my problem right now is that I am really hungry with nothing to eat so I don't know how Pokemon would make any difference.

I can say that it's probably the case that most people would happily drop everything in their life right now if they could exchange it for being a real Pokemon trainer.

I sometimes fear that no job will ever live up to it.

Even to this day, when birthday candles are blown out, a shooting star flies over head, or a toss a penny in a fountain, I close my eyes, make a wish, and believe.

+1 for being in that majority.
