Holy sh*t! That's all I got, really, other than the hope that they include the DLC in the Steam version, too.

I can literally see the DA:O disc from where I'm sitting, and this still would have been a tempting offer, even with Origin involved, if it came with Awakenings, which I never played. But looking at the store the expansion is still $19.99, so I'm good. I'll just await Inquisition with hope in my heart.

Yup, this is why I'm not playing Watch Dogs. I've played not so hot games just because they are memorable and have fun characters. Deadly Premonition, for example, which is absolutely amazing to me despite not being anywhere near a "good game." But Aiden just seems like a character that I want nothing to do with.

He just doesn't grab me as someone I want to guide through their path when it is so clearly, incredibly, dangerously self-centered.

The FFIX music in the background made me remember how much I loved that game. Also, don't let Square-Enix know about this video, probably.

I liked FFXIII, but it was more on the "mediocre" side for me. I'm glad to see Lost Odyssey on your "worst" list, though. My Lord, that game was a boring mess, and all the characters with giant boobs just made me roll my eyes in disgust at the laziness.

Great article, Patrick! Nice to read about an experience with gaming so different from my own.

I loved this game quite a bit, and it was actually only like the second or third JRPG I ever played. I also remember it was the very first game I ever bought with my own money. Worth it.

Omg, I was desperately waiting for Patrick's write-up on this. I'm gonna sip coffee and absorb EVE's crazyness. Yet again.

EDIT: Now that I've finished it, I have to say it was a well-written piece, for sure. That, and Mittani sounds like a friggin' man-baby, especially compared to the intelligence and "let it be because it's a game" attitude of Manny.

To be honest, I get it because it takes me a long time to reduce my Asshole Meter (tm) down to the point where it reaches "Yeah, you're alright." With people I already know, like brothers and whatnot, I'm a goddamn fool and a corny, bad-joke loving idiot and having a grand old time. But man, trying to "party" just annoys me, and I can't stand being in groups like that.

Another problem is that I am extremely bored by standard conversational fare, such as the weather, any and all sports, romance bullshit, 99% of TV. And that's what most people want to talk about, it seems.Tell me about your hobbies, interests, places you visited outside of the country you live in, and I'm all ears all day. I swear I'll hound you with questions out of a natural interest. Unless you're creepy, then the aforementioned Asshole Meter (tm) starts screaming at me to leave you the eff alone.

Unfortunately my real social anxiety and my absolute hatred of dumbasses, liars, narcissists, and creeps combines to make me want to stay home pretty much all the time.

As has been said already, it's good to have someone you really trust, who won't spill your secrets all over the place with others, to chat about these problems. Doesn't have to be a professional, in my opinion, just someone who has your back for real. For real.

Edit: To explain further, some of it really has to do my tendency to show way too much sympathy and empathy for people, which is a giant mistake when those people have their own problems that will lead them to mistreating you. "You can't help everybody" as they say. I decided recently to continue showing sympathy and empathy, that's who I am, but to make sure to stay away from the people that will abuse it. And to be incredibly honest about everything, to myself and those closest to me, even if it means being a little brutal. I dunno, that's how I'm solving my anxieties for myself for now.

I'll have to read the rest of this thread later on, though. It looks like I definitely have some brothers and sisters with similar problems dealing with others.
