I am sitting here falling asleep at my computer when I thought to myself what have I done in the world of games while asleep. So I thought I'd make a small list and see what comes of it, and if anyone reads it I'd like to hear comments of any of your narcoleptic triumphs. These are just in the order I think of them not in a time order.
I forget which guardian force it was, but active time battle systems and my tendency to fall asleep at 4 in the morning in the middle of combat during RPGs made me go back to a previous save time and time again in Final Fantasy VIII after I died in my sleep. Thankfully after a long long gaming marathon of VIII and having not saved in a 5 hours I found myself waking up in the middle of a battle with 2 of my guys dead and only Squall standing up with 2 HP left when one of my Guardian Forces came in killed the enemy and saved my ass before I had the chance to realize what was going on... I wish I could give more detail on this one but..it was a long time ago.
Ah, WoW, something so many people have lost days, months, and years of their lives too. The only game that made me ostracize myself so much from every non-gamer I knew that I came out of it with a blank slate and a fresh start on life with no old friends to bring me down, cause I had lost most of while getting my priest to 60..or my warlock to 60..or my 3 fighters to 60.... Why 3 fighters? ....I don't know... They were fun. Anywho this was a long time ago in the world of WoW, I a regular level 60 Warlock before the expansions that opened my eyes to the repetiveness that is WoW, was farming for a crusader enchant recipe for my guild for a good 2 hours, using the down time between respawns to write a paper on the importance of being productive as a school assignment, got a good grade on it..ain't that sad, passed out after seeing my succubus slap her ass at me for the 30000th time, an hour later I wake up to see a glowing corpse in front of my character, I right click, pick up the crusader enchant recipe and was on my merry way. Calling my enchanter friend to tell him the story and get yelled at in return for being the luckiest sleeper ever... Of course with WoW I had my fair share of falling asleep while running and waking up to many fatigue deaths.
Gears of War 2.. I've beaten this game.. I don't know what the hell happens in the ending, or who the boss was. I just remember it being 4 AM and waking up to the credits of the game. I plan on going back sometime soon and actually seeing the end, but last thing I remember was flying on a little horsie trying to avoid bombs, I've been told that's close to the end but I'd really like to see the actual end.
I'm gonna end here cause I didn't realize I'd make such a story for each one and I'm already tired writing so I'm afraid of what it might feel like to read it. read
