I am new to the board and, whenever that is the case, I feel it only appropriate to introduce myself first..... My name is Klyde and I am.... an OCG (Obsessive compulsive gamer)... well I am a tattoo artist first, which really cuts into my game time, art being my first love..... but a CLOSE second is anime and video games!!!! Problem being, there are so many awesome games to play nowadays and I just compulsively have to finish the ones I start... Even the bad ones, and it drives me nuts sometimes. I was just curious if anyone else suffers from the affliction and how they cope.
Case and Point: I am playing through Ar Tonelico 2 at the moment. Quite frankly I think it completely lacks but I'm such a sucker for that lush artwork and I did enjoy the 1st so I had high hopes for the sequel... but talk about convoluted (sp?) non-sensical plots and longwinded boring dialogues.... Its like they added the infelsphere into the game as a means of torture.... But truth be told, I can't turn the damn thing off because I just feel compelled out of utter necessity to finish AT2 off while I have Trails in the Sky sitting on the shelf tempting me.... Amongst a ton of other titles I would enjoy exponentially more.
In any event I was just curious how other people juggled the plethora of RPGs on the market today. It wasn't like this growing up for me as I used to have to wait for the next decent RPG to hit the states, with ample time to replay the last time again.... Not to sound as though I'm complaining about the selection... I'm complaining about my own inability to put a bad game down to move on to greener pastures.
Well that concludes my longwinded pointless introduction, true to Ar Tonelico 2 form... Maybe I have been playing this one too much? Hahaha!!! But seriously, lovely community here and I'm stoked to be a part!
