I fell off the wagon... videogame style


Videogames pretty much consumed my entire life ages 6 to 16. That’s an exaggeration of course as comic books, the internet, pornography and at least 2 girls at the local catholic school also had my attention in later years, but it’s not unfair to claim that nothing else mattered until I was 12. Luckily for my social life, I didn’t really latch on to the whole 128bit war since most of the games generally stopped being fun. While the occasional title grabbed my attention (read: Final Fantasy X and Dragon Quest 7) I honestly believed I was done for good with videogames.

And now Shadow of the Colossus fucked me up.

I mean WOW; the fights in this game are EPIC. It took me about an hour to get through the trickiest of the first 10 bosses and the game occasionally gets frustrating, but the rush you get when you finally find a Colossus’ weak spot and get to killing it? Priceless. The boss battles in most games really aren’t that special considering you’ve plowed through 200-300 skeletons/soldiers/grunts to get to em. Every fight in this game feels like a war though, the kind of hard fought cinematic struggle that makes it worth it. In other words, by the time it’s over you’re damned satisfied.

I’ve got to go finish it. I’m really addicted. God help me if I buy the next Dragon Quest game.
