Diary of a Hermit: Introduction

-By Adam

Quick question: What’s your favorite game ever?

I ask this question to a lot of people, and most of the time, their answer is a classic game that EVERYONE has played… except me.  Now, I’ve played a lot of games (and I mean a lot of games), and yet I keep running into legendary titles that I just haven’t gotten around to playing.  For instance, there’s this fascinating Nintendo game you may have heard of, called “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time”.

Whoa, take it easy, I actually have played that one.  As a matter of fact, I finished it just a few months ago.  What’s that you say?  It came out 14 years ago? And people have been calling it (arguably) the best game ever made?  And it’s already been re-released several times over?  Okay, fine, you have a point.

So, while I’m pretending that you’re here talking to me, let’s make a deal: I’ll come out from under my cozy rock, dig up some classic game fossils, and tell you what it’s like to play your favorite old games for the first time, as a (reclusive) member of modern, civilized society.  Okay, so it’s not really a deal, I’m just telling you what I’m going to do.

Welcome to Diary of a Hermit, my new column about games I should have played already, but haven’t!  In our next episode, I will join Dante the White on a high-octane quest to avenge his pizza in Devil May Cry 3!  See you next time, folks!
