I’ve been uber free recently, so have just downloaded an finished a PSP game, and I have to go through this kind of familiar heart-wrenching pain again. I think I’ve said this before, about how I find it very hard to pull out from a story that I’ve got myself very absorbed in for a considerable long amount of time.
The first recent case I felt like this was when I finished Trudi Canavan’s Magicial Guild series and was super damn sad when in the end the male character (which is the lead) I like very very much died . I took about 2-3 weeks to stop myself from thinking about the story over and over again when I’m free. Then the second recent case was when I’ve finished the PSP’s Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core, which is a RPG game (I like starting RPG games but I actually really rarely finishes any one), and I’ve finished the game to realize that the guy which I was playing as (and is the most important person in the game like duh) died. This got me into another super depressed state.
And then, I’ve got myself into this stupid situation again when I’ve finished a new game released for PSP, it’s not a new game to be exact, but has just been translated from Jap to English for people like us. Then, after I went through a 40 hours of gameplay, with the male and female lead characters in the game finally realized their feelings for each other only to find that the guy’s past wasn’t a good one, and he left the girl, and then I will have to wait for a goddamned who knows how long before the second one will be out. Cuz I’m super free now, I kept rethinking about the ending and the whole gameplay again and again, and whenever I kept rethinking, I feel damn sad again. Haiz, this is what happens when I play those RPG games that have strong story lines. Yet if the game doesn’t have great story lines, it’s quite impossible that I would finish the game. I’m just hoping that the second game would be released and not dropped halfway, and hopefully my PSP would be able to support it (else I also wouldn’t know what to do). Only thing troubling me is that, if the second one releases, and I’ve finished it again, I will have to go through another 1~ 2 weeks of depressed state again. Ayz. Irrites.
Anyway, I dun really know if this part of me is normal or not. Do you guys feel like this when you all just finished a series of books or games? I wonder will I ever stop feeling like this. I guess maybe that’s the reason why I liked shorter stories, stories that are shorter wouldn’t let me get too absorbed in it, so even if I finished them, I wouldn’t feel depressed or what.
I like stories that has a full circle as endings. Yet recently a lot of stories are those that have incomplete endings, zzz.
PS : Twilight has full circle as endings, but the female character is so retarded that I’m considering to burn away the first 2 books I bought.
PSS : And I’m not even curious about the story for the 3rd and the 4th books.
