Kids make you do the darnedest things. Tonight is, without question, Game of Thrones night, so I had budgeted for a quick 20 minute post-Thrones session of Wolfenstein to replay the opening mission and choose a difference ‘sacrifice’ in order to meet today’s goal, but instead, we had a few minutes between dinner and bed and my son asked if we could play ‘the Dog game’ and, thus, today’s achievement was earned.
To be honest, I wasn’t fussed if I earned any achievements or not, but in the wake of Crash Bandicoot mania, it felt good to play something from the era. And do you know what? I was pleasantly surprised! It is a stunning endorsement for the philosophy that graphics are, by far and away, secondary to gameplay, and after 95%’ing the first level (where are those pesky musical notes?) I’m actually happy to keep playing.
When the kids are awake, of course. I have demons and zombies and monsters to battle in the meantime.
