As quickly as Tales of Symphonia intrigued me, the intrigue dissipated. So I decided that I’m tired of the boring story, the identical dungeons, and the repetitive gameplay. How can I call this repetitive and still love Kingdom Hearts? Because I just can, dammit.
But anyway, I’m trying out Amazon’s new trade-in service for video games. They’re offering me $15 per game, which is more than I know I could get selling them on Amazon or trading them in at Gamestop. The only catch is that you don’t get cash for them, just the dollar amount in Amazon gift certificates. This is fine by me. As soon as they receive the games (free shipping, I might add) and I get the credits, I’m ordering a couple of new guides for review.
I told my husband last night about Amazon’s trade-in service and mentioned that Tales of Symphonia was in the package. He gave me this huge look of relief and said, “Oh thank God. That game was so boring. Everything was the same. I couldn’t understand why you were playing it.”
Granted, he hates watching me play anything. Turn-based combat bores him (I agree it is boring to watch) and Kingdom Hearts gave him motion-sickness. Wimp. Well I won’t be torturing him anymore with that game. I wonder what else I could torture him with…
