What Are You Playing This Weekend?

The weekend is for being on a home decorating kick. I decided I needed more decor with colors, only to buy a bunch of stuff in shades of gray. Gray is a color, right? The weekend is also for playing video games while occasionally wondering if my monochrome apartment looks classy or sad.

While chatting with a colleague earlier this week, I was reminded that it has been infinitely too long since I have played a stealth game. My hard drive is cluttered with half-completed no kill/no detection playthroughs of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Dishonored, and Dishonored 2, all of which I haven’t played in so long that there’s no way I won’t mess up those runs if I jump back into them. It feels like a good weekend to forget how to play some stealth games, though.

Persona 4 Golden.

I’m finally, really, deeply into this game and it feels great. I bought it in 2013 on heavy recommendation and played a little bit, but fell off. I was in the midst of a deep depression at the time and I can see by my trophy dates that I played on and off over a few months before stopping. Then I started over in 2017 but had to stop because I just couldn’t pay enough attention with a new baby at home - fatherhood won out, of course!

But last week I charged up my Vita and restarted the game again and found to my surprise that I just fell in love with it this time. I’m hooked! And now I’ve got nothing to stop me finishing it, aside the need to charge batteries every now and then. It’s also a good reminder of how slick and solid the Vita hardware is. Compared to my Switch, it feels like a Ferrari compared to a beat-up Camry. Of course, the better game library means my Switch will continue to get far more play overall, so it’s more of a bittersweet reminder.

Anyway, thanks to this site and everyone who recommended P4G over the years. It really is fantastic.
