Fan-girl-itsis, I am such a fruit loop! (Emotional Video Game Rant)

Friday, January 11, 2013

Well, I have an interesting realization last night. I talked about it some in my last blog, but I didn't realize it was this bad.

I got home and I didn't want to eat, I didn't want to watch TV or play that stupid game. Pretty close to my actually thought process. Then I realized I was really depressed. WHY? I asked myself. At first I didn't know, but as I was stalking ME images on Deviant Art I figured it out.

THE STUPID GAME! I don't want to play it. My Favorite Character DIES! I don't want to deal with it and I can't change it and it pisses me off. I know it's a little crazy, but I really do get way too attached to fictional characters and it usually random side characters that are expendable. This happens a lot to me. It's like I'm losing someone I am in love with. Grrrrrrrrr.

My BF is going to tease the crap out of me for this, but I'm going to tell him. He's going to be so did you play the game yet...all glowy and in love with it. He's not going to get it. His favorite LIs all get happily live on, even without the what's his face. I think he saw this coming. When I was playing the first one, I was complaining about the lacking in the LI (Love Interests) for the female version of the character. And explaining what I found lacking. I also mention that Garrus would be more interesting to pursue, he's funny. The BF looked at me and said "You're going the love Thane" I hate that he was so right.

I know there were a lot of fans of this game that felt that is was just wrong. (Trolling Deviant Art gives you lots of info and lots of AWESOME pictures) and it's comforting to know I am not the only nut case in the world. I often tell my BF he's the only man in the Universe I want. Yeah, this universe, now in the fantasy ones, he's got some serious competition. Is that wrong?

I know he has little fantasies so I don't think so. So anyone else have a case of fan girl itsis for a character or even a real person? (Come on, make me feel less like a weirdo, share the weirdness)

Hopefully you guys don't mind the emotional rant, but I did put it in the title. If you do, why'd ya read so long?

    I spend an embarassing amount of time playing Tiny Monsters. You are not alone in your Gamer girl-ness.

    I don't think you're a fruit loop! And having a crush on a character, video game or otherwise, is not wrong. If it is....oh boy am I in trouble!!

    @ CKMATHERLY - I think having a crush on a character is fine. No different than all the girls/ladies crushing on Edward or what's his name in the sparklepire movies/books. No different than all the people crushing on live actors in movies/tv. People cry at movies and books all the time. I see this as no different. NOW! When you break up with your BF to have a meaningful relationship with a made up character - then I will worry.

@ CINCERICIA - I hope you pillow attach your husband up for not crying and being emotionally attached to the characters and not because he is alive - haha. Sorry, I had to double read that line LOL.

    I have cried--chest sucking, wracking sobs--at the deaths of some of my favorite characters in video games. And in books. I've also beat my husband senseless with pillows for not doing the same.
