Tales of Etrian Odyssey : Close Call

Once a while back, I very nearly committed that cardinal sin of throwing my DS down/across the room while playing Etrian Odyssey. The game was just so punishing, the experience so addictive, that I could not bring myself either to stop or to calm down. Pausing on the upswing, I thought better of it and instead wagged my finger at the game, like an old man angry at the damn kids who keep throwing their Frisbee on his lawn.

I don't normally get really emotional when playing games, and have never broken a console or controller in anger. That punishing difficulty really got my goat, but when push came to shove, I found myself unable to put it down.

I'm a 24 year old from California with a voracious appetite for media and all things geeky. I like most video game types, with the exceptions being puzzlers and fighters. Destructoid and its staff loom large in my life. Receiving an email reply from Jonathan Holmes was both thrilling and nauseating, being as it was both drunken and influenced by a podtoid overdose. Sorry, Jonathan...
