That Sick, Sweet Addiction Returns
And I was hooked again.
Previously it had been months since I touched the PSP game. Not that I didn't like it. I do ... a lot. I just thought I'd give it a rest for a spell and focus on a few other games. This one, however, is like crack. You can tell yourself you'll play a few games, and then three weeks later you are still going at it.
If you've read my previous posts on the subject, you know I was never a huge fan of the original game, though I had it for my Atari 2600. This version of the game, however, is so insanely addictive that three minutes of it sends me on a bender of massive proportions.
I think every gamer has one of those games. A game they just strive to better themselves at no matter how often it's beat them or they've beat it. I have a few of those, but this one ranks at the top.
I suppose soon I'll put it away again, vowing not to go back to it for a few months. Telling myself I want to play something else.
And then my daughter will throw down the gauntlet and it'll start all over again.
