I’m not sure if it happens to you, but it sure hell happened to me. Otherwise, this post would not even be here.
Remember how I occasionally tweeted about the coming of The 3rd Birthday? I finally played it late last year but I didn’t even complete Episode 1!! One of the reason is of course my poor grasp of Japanese language but I’ve seen one person who has no extensive knowledge of the language completed the game and is on his way trying to complete it AGAIN in hard mode. And there’s another reason which really prompted me to stop for real was – I keep getting headaches.
The 3rd Birthday isn’t the first game I suffered headaches from while playing it. I remember 8 years ago or so, I played my first and only FPS game which goes by the name of “Delta Force”. After my first game, my head was spinning like mad! I stopped playing the game since. I didn’t like the game enough to try again. Ha!
Then after I got my PSP, I tried “Snoopy vs. the Red Baron”. It’s such a cute game but flying Snoopy is not a working formulae for me. I can only want to puke (literally) by the end of each game. Oh no, not because the game sucks or anything. Don’t get me wrong. I even tried several times since but had to stop completely after series of headaches. My friend is as curious as I am about this odd condition of mine. You see, we’re suppose to be playing that game together. He ended up having to playing the game on his own.
This weird scenario happened again with The 3rd Birthday. After getting slight headaches twice from playing the game, I quit. I can assure your T3B has a lot of potential to become one of my favorite games. It has what it takes, really. I like the opening scene, the music ain’t that bad and the graphics – wow! Need I say more? But it’s not meant to be.
While writing this post, I couldn’t help but wonder why is that there are some games I could play and that there are some games I just couldn’t. Most games I’ve completed on PSP aren’t action-packed. God of War!! I could complete two God of Wars without any issues!! That’s loaded with actions no? So WHY???
Does this ever happen to you or I’m the only odd creature that ever walked on this earth?
