Let’s be clear here: I’m not talking of game irritation, where you’re irritated but you’ll still want another go.
No, I’m talking about those times when you get seriously hacked off and end up in a bad way. This is the kind of state where stupid things can happen, damaging things and I’ve at least gotten to the point where I can recognise them and stop things dead before it gets worse and the chances of bad things happening goes up quite a bit. I’ve pretty much decided that these should not happen, that once one turns up, it gets shut down.
(Compared to previously? Well, let’s see, it has, on a few times, years ago, probably a decade ago, before I mellowed a bit, ended with pieces of a game disc in a bin after being stabbed a few times with a steak knife!)
Once I’ve averted one of these, I would frankly have to be an idiot to even contemplate going back to that particular section. Trying it first time to see how I get on? That’s fine. Going back a second time after a really bad disaster? No. Not a good idea, not ever a good idea. If I know a section is going to have this kind of effect, I am going to avoid it once known.
On a lighter note though, I have definitely found that I’m better at 2D thinking versus 3D on games, now what or who does that render me as?
