The other day I was playing through Ocarina of Time and was in the Deku Tree. I was speeding through, because somehow my mind remembers all the things I have to do from the first time I played all those years ago. Things were going fine until that jump. If you've ever played the game (and really why haven't you yet), you know the jump I mean. (It's in the picture up there if you've never played.) Well, that jump got to me. See, I'm afraid of heights in real life, but it's never affected my game playing until recently. More and more though I have to at least pause for a second in games before making big leaps. Even if I know that my character won't get hurt, I still pause. It's like I have to judge the distance, or contemplate real life repercussions. I don't know. It's strange.
So, since it's almost Halloween, have you ever had any real life fear mess with your gaming?
If you don't want to talk about this, feel free to talk about anything!
And Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have good weekends!
Oh, and don't forget about the TAY: Halloween "Masquerade"! All the cool kids will be there. Well, not really, but all their alter egos will be!
