I’m not much of a video gamer. Mostly because I have very, very poor hand/eye coordination. Well, let’s face I have very little coordination in general. But I do like to watch. Call it a gamerkink if you want, but I like to watch people play certain video games. Living vicariously through their hands.
Anyway, one of the first and only games I got really hooked on was Myst. I would play for hours and hours. My mom would make me go outside. I was using eye drops on the regular at like 13. Then, as suddenly as it started, it stopped.
But I hold that game very dear to my heart as the one game I truly became addicted to.
Then, I just found out the other day that people have been in talks to make a movie based on the game Myst. And this Penny Arcade comic pretty much sums up exactly how I think the plot would go.
I’m not kidding you, I laugh every time I read this comic because it is SO true.
