I haven't beat 3D Land yet, or I guess I mean really beat, with both dudes and all the coins and all the flagpoles, and it's not cause I haven't wanted to. But wait actually, that is exactly the reason. I've played this game basically in three chunks since getting it—has it really been almost an entire year since this came out? I think the reason I sorta started and stopped was that the game ended up feeling kind of samey to me as I went.
What kind of gamer am I supposed to be? I guess I'm having a bit of an identity crisis. I've been playing pretty fervently since the 80s, so maybe I'm a traditional gamer. I enjoy a nice challenge and a deep assortment of systems, so certainly I'm a core gamer. Sometimes I'll play an old NES game, does that make me a retro gamer? And I own Wii Sports, and played it with coworkers and family, I guess I'm also a casual gamer.
