Watch your language, please, MourningStar.
I'm not sure what I want to play. I haven't played a video game other than "Avernum: Escape From the Pit" (amazing game but it's very long and I keep getting distracted and forgetting what I was doing) or "Minecraft", in a very long time.
(warning Final Fantasy 6 and 7 spoilers ahead)
I've decided that while I'm attempting to recover from a stupid medication decision and trying to pretend I'll find a local psychiatrist who respects zir patients' time soon, I'm going to distract with a video game. The two I'm considering right now are "Final Fantasy VI" and "Dink Smallwood". Considering I'm teetering on the edge of being locked up in a psych hospital during the holidays, FF6 may be a bit too intense, if what I've heard about it is true. On the other hand, Dink Smallwood is... Dink Smallwood. It's an old isometric RPG full of corny jokes and pointless violence, and it's FOSS now. The lightheartedness I'm assuming it has might be good for my head. But I'm the guy who just got upset with someone for spoiling the plot of FF6, to which my sister replied that you can't call "no spoilers" on a 15+ year old game, and I'd be very interested to see if Kefka really is as scary as I'm told. He's supposed to be scarier than the villain in FF7, although I don't know how many of the people who say that are talking about Sephiroth (just a really strong guy with a big sword and a bit of charisma) and how many are talking about the ShinRa Electric Power Company. When you think about where the monsters you're fighting throughout the game are coming from and paying attention to the monsters' faces, ShinRa looks really, really, grotesquely horrifying. I'm really curious about how people will view the game with the remake, when they'll hopefully see, with frightening clarity, that no, that monster isn't a crab. It's even more twisted than Resident Evil, I think, so if Kefka can top that, I'll be impressed.
Of course, that may be exactly why I should put FF6 on hold a little longer...
