Crisco here. Thus far, I am having a ludicrously bad week, so I am going to keep this short:
Do you like coffee?
That is all.
FINE, I WILL WRITE SOMETHING!
Lately, I have been playing a lot of HD re-releases from ye olden era of games. The game I am playing right now is Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Turbo mega HD funtastic super ultra final remix-mix. It feels archaic and has some horrible controls/design decisions (DEM GUMMI SHIP LEVELS).
Why do I love it so much then? I thought about it for awhile, and I could only come to one conclusion: Kingdom Hearts is a comfort game for me. It is not the best game. It is not the funnest game. Hell, it is not even always a good game (DEM GUMMI SHIP LEVELS). Yet, when I am having a horrible week, Kingdom Hearts is one of the best choices to just get lost in a game for a bit. If I think about it, there are probably nearly a dozen games I can think of that fit this category. KH 1.5 is just the one I am playing right now (Ace Attorney is another one that instantly comes to mind...).
So, what is one (or a few) of your comfort games?
If you do not have an opinion on coffee and you do not have any comfort games, then you could just post the funniest video you know of in the comments. I need some laughs today.
Here is mine (yes it is old, but I only found it last week thanks to Morie, so :P ):
Of course, these are all just suggestions. Feel free to talk about anything you want to talk about. I CHRISTEN THIS OPEN FORUM OPEN WITH THE POWERS VESTED IN ME AS CRISCO, OF THE ORDER CRISCO.
