- great memory derek (ignore the troll above me) i recall playing CTR (that's crash team racing) on ps1 as a kid and trying to get a platinum relic on crash cove. i collected all the time boxes and was just short of the platinum relic qualifying time. dismayed, i hung my head. but little did i know you get a time deduction bonus for getting all the boxes. this deduction pushed me into platinum range. i hi-fived a nearby friend real hard
- the momentary feeling of accomplishment that i can only get from flashing lights and noises and am too used to getting artificially that despite being 32 years old i will never achieve in real life, also the steady distraction from my responsibilities and fears. then there was the time my brother and i beat mario 64 one evening and right after mario said thank you so mucha for to playing my game there was a hail of gunfire and screams from the othrr room where our parents were watching some movie and that was pretty funny.
