Ocarina of Time; now there’s a game to really think about! It made video games a respectable art form

,and I suspect it’s because the game reveals to us quite a bit about ourselves, as all great art does. Link, the archetypical hero, goes on a crusade against the chaos of Ganon, the figurative dragon guarding the golden Triforce. Of course, in the beginning, Link doesn’t stand a chance against a brute like him, he’s just a dumb kid, like most of us are! He needs to grow up in a big way, and that means going into the Temple of Time and taking the Master Sword out of its pedestal. But the player knows it’s not just a fancy blade, it’s the Superego, obviously!

When you choose to take it from the pedestal, you’re making a decision to take the weight of the world upon your shoulders, and that’s no small task! But it’s infinitely preferable to the choice of letting Ganon decide the world for you and everyone else, because we see what happens when he does; Hyrule becomes Hell. And this is basically adulthood, folks, but thank God you’ve got some support systems in place! Navi-- like Jiminy Cricket-- she’s your conscience speaking to you; whispering in your ear! And you might think you’re clever and know the rules of the game and you don’t have to listen to her after a while, but then you find yourself running circles around the Water Temple like a damn chimp. Maybe you’re made a little more humble for the experience, or maybe you choose to spite Eiji Aonuma’s efforts out of bitterness, but man, that’s not constructive and it’s not going to get you anywhere.


Shyness, Stage Fright, Anxiety, etc

Have you ever had/have any sort of shyness/etc?

 

I have, but I got over it just bc I realized a lot of people don't have any sort of big expectations or expect much, and if you basically do even sorta decent you're going to look like a star/look assertive/be really good. They also aren't very excited themselves, if you do any sort of cool move you're going to look high energy. That and nobody's gonna remember any mistakes you make anyway other than completely insane moves, so whatever.

 

Also, all the people I remember who were really good were just kinda OK but you remember their best a lot more than their decent/bad.

Slay the Spire

Slay the Spire is a really cool new game I wanted to highlight just because it's so mechanically unique and great. Basically, you attack by playing cards, and you get cards and upgrade them while climbing the tower. At the start of each turn you discard your hand and draw a fresh 5 cards, and if you run out of cards in the deck you shuffle all your used cards back in and draw again.

 

The cards all have unique effects and synergies, and all the Relics(basically permanent continuous spells) can add to them, I even found one that draws you a card when you have 0 in your hand and it can reactivate any number of times per turn so I picked all the 0 cost cards, found one that reduces your max HP by 20% and makes you draw a card whenever you take HP damage, etc.

 

It's really cool, and strategic.
