Buying a bad game out of hope

Why do I buy bad games?

This is a question I often find bouncing around my head from time to time. And considering that yesterday, on a whim, I went out to my local Gamestop and bought...wait for it...ready...Musashi: Samurai Legend. It was $4.99. No, you're right. I apologize. That doesn't make it right.

The brown outline looks like Musashi has a chinstrap beard. Not bad for a "kid" hero.

Another thing greatly disappointing about Musashi: Samurai Legend is the humor. It's gone. Oh sure, there's this mild attempt to poke fun at things like rescuing princesses and being destined for greatness, but it all falls horribly flat. This is because the game actually thinks it is a serious piece of adventuring. It's not. You have an old cat that can barely speak and is missing an eye as your counselor. He is no Yoda, try as though he might.

So I guess in this case the answer to my previously posed question is: out of hope. I hoped this would have done it for me, that this would have reminded me enough about the good times I had with Brave Fencer Musashi, but alas, it has only made me miss it more.

Ultimately, I should've gone to Quiznos and got a sandwich instead.

About Raccoonusone of us since 12:18 PM on 10.31.2008

Name's Paul. New Jersey is my home, and autumn air is what I prefer to breathe.

I've been playing videogames ever since I unwrapped my very first console one Christmas, a Super Nintento Entertainment System, some many, many years ago. Since then, I've fallen in love with RPGs and JRPGs, platformers that feed my OCD, and watching other people play first-person shooters (I get dizzy if I try to play them myself). I like gaming, but I definitely don't love it as much as I used to. For that, let's blame the economy and/or dayjobs. Still, I do keep up on the new games and hope to eventually get a current-gen system (I'm thinking Xbox 360, mainly for Fable II and Oblivion).

Game Systems of Mine...
Playstation 2
Playstation 1 (Tried to sell it at a yard sale for $5, but no one wanted it so I'm sure it's in a box somewhere in my parents' garage.)
Super Nintendo Entertainment System (More yellow than a lemon, but the blasted thing still works. Games I have for it that proves I'm not a complete tool when it comes to selling/trading in classics are Super Metroid, Zelda: A Link to the Past, Killer Instinct [it's just so...black!], Jurassic Park, Madden '97, and Mario Paint [but I can't play it as I don't have the mouse thinger].
Nintendo DS

Clearing Out the Backlog On...
Final Fantasy 9

Top Five Albums I Can Listen to Over and Over...
Weezer - The Blue Album
Cursive - The Ugly Organ
Paul Simon - Graceland
Ryan Adams - Heartbreaker
The Beatles - Rubber Soul

Hmm...must think of what else I can put here that would be of interest to people.
