My wife is a serious video game and RPG fanatic. She bought the new Final Fantasy VIII for our Playstation. We have over fifteen Playstation games, of which I have mastered only one. This was a collection of old arcade games that had Pac-Man, Pole Position, and Galaga on it. Those were great.
My character on Final Fantasy VII is still stuck on this fuckin' elevator from hell, and since my 2-yr old ripped up the strategy guide and fed it to the dog, now I am completely clueless. The wife, for some sadistic reason, will not give me any help. With some disgust I picked up the Final Fantasy VIII guide book and attempted to play the game. The book is slightly less in content than the combined operating instructions of the NASA Space Shuttle. As far as the Playstation control pad goes, I think your average F-15 fighter has a simpler control system. I'm still trying to find extra fingers for those stupid buttons on the front side of the pad.
Anyway, sorry to rant for so long, but am I the only one that is video-handicapped in this bright, new, shining millenium?
