OMG!!YOU CAN HOLD HANDS NOW!!!AND GENERALLY BE IN CONTACT WITH NPCS!!NOT FAIL IMITATION CONTACT!!AND JOHN CLEESE VOICES THE BUTLER, MEANING MONTY PYTHON HUMOR!!AND YOU CAN RULE THE WOOOORLD!!

Yes, those all receive the same level of excitement. Why? Because I get veeery into my games, especially RPG’s. It’s not just about the quests, gold, power, etc. An example of my getting into games: When my husband died in Fable 2 near the end, as well as my children, I was very upset. My mom threatened not to let me play it if I got so upset about it. Before you go saying I’m a loser, I view games like books. To really fully understand it, you have to immerse yourself in the game, try to understand where the main character is coming from (well, in Fable, you choose where you come from but more on that later). It makes it more enjoyable than just having achievements to burn through. So yes, I get attached but no, I don’t allow the game to become so real that I focus on it more than real life. As previously mentioned, I love games where I can have a family. I think it brings a whole other aspect to game play, can’t really describe it but its one of my most favourite things.

Ok, there was a rant coming from that, but I lost it cause I was talking to a guy about selling my pellet gun. I’ll rant later!
