Video Game Sob Stories

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I didn't know where else to put this so I decided to make a thread.  If it disappears and fades away then that's alright by me, I just wanted the chance to share since I don't really have anybody else to talk to about it...  at least no one will really GET it.

 

Anyway...  I used to have so much cool stuff you guys!  I just recently turned 40 but have been into gaming my whole life, going back to Atari and Coleco.  NES, TurboGrafx 16 and CD/Super CD stuff later, Genesis, SNES, Saturn, 3DO, Dreamcast, Playstation, N64, PS2, PS3, PS4, Gamecube, Wii, Wii U, Switch, Xbox, 360, XBone, GBA, DS in many flavors, 3DS too, Vita, etc etc.

 

I've been around and am still going.

 

I used to take pride in having all the boxes etc and all the goodies that went along with them.  Then eventually I got married and later had some kids.  Along the way, little by little I started getting rid of stuff.  Had to free up some space, stuff like that.  

 

One painful step along the way was putting discs into binders and getting rid of everything else.  Oh, the pile of STUFF I made on the floor in the process.  Hurt my soul a bit, but I adjusted and moved on.  This isn't a story of regret either, at least not to the extent that it may seem.  I'd do it all again to be where I am right now.  I mostly just wanted to SHARE among some who may care.

 

I mean, I had stuff like Panzer Dragoon Saga, Radiant Silvergun, Castlevania Rondo of Blood.  You know, THAT kind of stuff.  (Those types of things didn't get the binder treatment.  I'm not a monster!)  The kind of stuff that every time I hear them mentioned on the gaming podcasts I listen to now, it stings a little, and I just wanted to talk about it.

 

And I have now, so thanks!  Ha ha ha!

 

So feel free to share any stories any of you oput there may have, or feel free to let the thread fade away.  Either way, I feel better already!

My biggest regret was lending my physical copy of Castlevania: SotN to my girlfriend at the time.

 

In the original jewel case with the original art.

 

We broke up and I never got it back.  I could never bring myself to buying a new one with the green "greatest hits" spine on the cover.  I know that sounds incredibly dumb, but it just wasn't the same.

 

Because of that I funded Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night on Kickstarter and opted for the really expensive physical boxed edition.  

 

A few months ago I dug out my GameCube because I wanted to play Eternal Darkness.  I had everything packed up from a move a few years ago.  I could find the GC, controller and memory card but I can't find my games anywhere.

I wrote a nifty little Star Trek game in BASIC on my TI-99/4A that I saved on a standard audio cassette tape. I'll never get that back.

When I was twelve or thirteen, I used to proudly tell people at school that my favorite band was Resister. When they told me they'd never heard of Resister, I'd play them "Who's Crying Now?" on my Walkman and say "I can't believe you've never heard of them!" like a smug little git. I was so proud of having a band that nobody else had heard of.

 

The truth is that I bought Captain America for my Amstrad computer and the game came on a cassette. "Who's Crying Now?" was given free with the game for some odd reason, and was located on the b-side. By the time I got to about fourteen, I'd completely forgotten about them. I still listen to the song every now and again, though!

I sobbed like a little baby the first, and only, time I passed the insane jump in Battletoads.

This story, the song, and the fact it came on an Amstrad game cassette, are all amazing.

I had that Captain America game on the Atari ST! I'd recognise the back of that big blue head anywhere. Though I seem to recall not knowing what the hell you were supposed to do.
