Aside: This Is How Much Of A Geek I Am
You’re all about to collectively call me out on how sad I am.
When I’m playing a JRPG–which just so happens to be now—I sit with a notepad by my side, jotting down notes whenever an ambiguous clue is given in conversation with a NPC.
So, for example, some melancholy stranger (they’re always melancholy in JRPGs) will hint at buried treasure he’d concealed long ago in the past, just outside a dungeon you’ll happen to venture towards later in the game. Most people will have forgotten by the time they get there, but not I! No, I have it written down in my trusty moleskine.
What’s even geekier is that I then tick next to each objective I’ve completed.
Okay, I’ll get my coat and leave now.
