I’m pretty sure I already used that title for one of my LJ posts way back when, but cut me some slack here — you have to admit it’s fitting.
The other day I finished the Japanese version of Gyakuten Saiban 4, known to the English-speaking world by the not at all gay name of Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney. I bought the limited edition of the game when it came out last April in Japan, and played through the first day of the fourth case before I stopped. Since the English version is coming out here in the states in February, I decided I’d pick it up again and finish it before then.
I considered glossing over the reason why I stopped playing it, in the interest of maintaining some of my personal dignity. But I can’t lie to you guys, especially not when it gives you the the perfect chance for a laugh at my expense. Your humor, after all, is more important than my emotional well-being. You see, I got to a point where it was too emotionally depressing for me to continue.
There, I said it. I got depressed over a video game. I suppose that’s somewhat understandable — as a 12-year-old boy, my emotions are not fully developed and I get upset easily.
(Behind the cut, no major plot spoilers, but if you don’t want to know anything about the game, you’ll probably want to skip this.)
