While cleaning out my closet, I found my old Game Boy Color. As a result, I lost an entire evening rediscovering Pokemon Yellow. I remember getting frustrated during a Legend of Zelda marathon session and packing everything away in the game case. It was so long ago I forgot I even had a Game boy.
I love those old games. When I think about my favorites, they are all old games with fairly simple graphics… but man were they fun to play. I remember the first time I played Thief, what a freaking awesome game. The third one was okay, definitely had it’s good points, but it was too into “sparkly pixels”. I would have liked more game play and better levels for sneaking around. The first 2 thief games are among my favorite games, and the FF series up to 7… I lost interest after 7. I like new games too and awesome graphics, but they don’t have the charm of the old ones, at least to me.
I’m not doing a whole lot today, mostly waiting for my doll to arrive… I told you I was regressing. I did watch another chapter of that training video, so I haven’t been a complete spud, just a partial one. Mom’s cleaning people are here today and it’s hard to do anything with them running around. Oh darn, looks like I’ll have to play more pokemon while I wait for them to leave.
