Dagger, something very similar happened to me when i was in 5th grade. My PSOne, along with all of my games, were just gone when I got home from school. I remember that day so vividly along with the sinking feeling I got when I walked into the living room to play Legend of Mana, as was my routine at the time. I feel your feels.
Finally bought Dark Souls because my friend wouldn't shut up about it ("IT'S THE BEST GAME EVER YOU HAVE TO PLAY IT"). It does seem like something that is right up my alley, though. Other than that, I bought Beyond Good & Evil and Doom II from XBLA, and I'm having a blast replaying both..
