I started playing Zelda: A Link to the Past today and now, I don't think I have what it takes to play videogames anymore. Why? Because I GOT STUCK ON THE FIRST LEVEL! Specifically, the East Palace, which is the first level past the tutorial level. I couldn't deal with the fact the game always started me off with so little health... health that gradually got chipped away by the masses of literally indestructible enemies, having to start over at the beginning of the level and then, after slogging and dodging my way to the point where I last died, dying there again in exactly the same way. After repeating this for 60 minutes, I would have thrown my DS through a wall of if my thumb wasn't burning so badly.
And this is considered one of the best games ever made? If so, then I'm beginning to wonder if I still have what it takes to be a gamer.
