Well, more video game related frustration coming up. This time, not so much from trying over and over, but from losing a lot of progress in one fell swoop. I'm sure many of you can relate.
So, yesterday I was playing Persona 4, great game, and I really love it, and I had gotten to a certain point in the story where, without spoiling too much, the faeces had hit the proverbial fan. In other words: "It just got real!"
Naturally, I was quite excited about this, and just had to keep playing for a little while longer. I proceeded through the dungeon, higher and higher. The enemies in the area were tough, but nothing I couldn't handle. I was starting to run low on energy, however, so I thought to myself: "Just go to the next floor and then teleport back to the entrance, same procedure as always." That was the plan, anyway.
I ran into yet another group of enemies, and was close to defeating them all. But, as I saw how little health he had left, I neglected healing myself to try to finish him off quickly. Big mistake. One more hit would have killed him, and my attack... missed. I could only look on in despair as he wiped me out with a powerful spell, and I recalled the last time I had saved. "No." I said. "I am not playing this game again for a few days."
But somehow, I know I probably will. Because no matter how cruel it may get, no matter how far back I get pushed, I always grit my teeth and plod on. No matter how much I rage against the game, I always seem to come back to it before long. I guess that's a sign that the game is really good.
Well, we'll see how it goes. Until next time, have a good day!
