re: "Getting to Know You" question of the day
@thraeryn I was playing Pokemon Leaf Green, an NPC asked me to do something, and I said no. This was the first time I said no in the game.. and the illusion of choice was shattered. I looped the dialog around 50 times getting angry, before ragequitting - unable to save because I was stuck in a dialog. It took me a while to figure out why I couldn't progress the story. I resolved to become a game developer, work for Game Freak, and make Pokemon games with actual choice!
Now I'm an independent game dev, and programmer. So I guess I followed my anger-inspired dreams? I no longer want to work for Game Freak, though I would love to make Pokemon games still, and I know how important an illusion of choice can be.
