Under no circumstance do I sell or trade in any of my games. Not anymore. When I was young and foolish, I did such things. I traded in all sorts of SNES games. I sold my NES and most of my games so that I can get the latest SNES titles, including Final Fantasy III. I went through a large number of games, only to be left with a few. When you’re young, you don’t know any better. All you’re interested is the next big title; screw the old ones. sigh. It was all so stupid. Oh how I regret selling off all those games now.
I was hit by a completely random F-Zero urge today. After loading it up in the SNES, I proceeded to obliterate my decade old records. I used to think that I peaked back then, but now it’s clear: either I have become really good, or I really sucked when I was twelve.
Revelations aside, F-Zero was merely a gateway game. After so many laps around Mute City, I started to itch for Pilotwings. Then it struck me. Pilotwings was one of the games I sold. The consequences of my past mistakes continue to haunt me.
One of the things I noticed about this year’s E3 is a game that wasn’t there. Please let it be true.
