Disclaimer- For day 18 of Writing 101, I tackle anecdotes. I just found out this afternoon what an anecdote is, so if this post sucks, and you don’t like it…I’m sorry. I’m not verse in these writing styles, but I’m learning them. We shall see if the help of the Writing 101 community came in handy. Hope you like it!
I step into the Wasteland and I got into this building, this warehouse depot and there is nothing on sight. I notice a Feral Ghoul on the 2nd floor, and then after this one notices me, like ten more Ghouls, including a Legendary Ghoul, shows up and swamp me. Dead.
I go into this like spot, it’s a shopping mall, and I know this place is going to be, filled with either Super Mutants or Raiders. It was Raiders. So me and my companion sniper, McCready, go in and just start killing each one. Some where armed with guns, other with molotovs, others with blunt objects. We get rid of them all; except I still hear one more. Lobs a grenade from the roof and kills me; and then it takes 7 more tries and they didn’t come close to this first one. Dead.
I step into this factory, overrun by Ghouls, so I take them out, me and Cogsworth (my Mr. Handy butler). And we fulfill our quest and we are stepping out. TWO legendary Mire Lurks get in front of the entrance and we can’t get out. Cogsworth is down. Mire Lurks are basically giant mutated crab monsters, and their weak point…for maximum damage; is nowhere! So they get stuck on the staircase, and I can kill them one at a time. Until the game crashes. Dead
I am trying to save my partner in crime, a fan of the Silver Shroud. I took the position of the Silver Shroud, a crime fighter he used to announce on the radio. And he brought it back through me. And I played him wearing his costume, killing Raiders and leaving my calling card. And then Sinjin, a massive Ghoul raider meets me with my friend, captured; in this hospital riddled with Raiders. So I take this last elevator and I need to save him. Sadly, he kills my friend. And I don’t want that! So I restarted from the last checkpoint…17 times. Dead x 17.
Day One. I am hyped. I preloaded the game into Steam and I’m ready. I’m a little scared since Day One releases are normally broken in today’s game industry. But I was sure that Bethesda, the makers of Fallout 4, were not going to do this. First boot, set to Ultra settings; runs beautifully. For 15 minutes. Dead.
Load it again, and after a few minutes…dead.
This goes on for an hour. Dead. FUCK THIS GAME!
When even the game dies on me…there is no hope for me. Help me! I’m dying! Of anger!
Well I hope this wasn’t too bad, and all this was true, by the way. Since then, game is back up and doesn’t crash; often. I’ve had 1-2 crashes since, but not like Day One. Why don’t you share with me your frustrating moments of death with whatever game you want. And if you don’t play video games, why don’t you tell me of an experience that keep repeating similar to dying a lot in games like, how I described. Take care!
