I’ve finished my 228th video game. Here is a very short review:
I first became vaguely aware of Star Wars in the early 90’s—when I was 5 or 6. I would regularly catch bits and pieces of the original trilogy on television. I was completely unaware of the concept of a sequel, so I assumed that the whole thing was a single, gargantuan film. I couldn’t piece together the narrative, but I’d always been obsessed with big stories: the more impenetrable the better. I fell in love immediately.
If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you’re probably well aware of my historical tendency to begin a game and never finish it. A few weeks ago, I decided to dust off my old copy of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (for the sake of brevity, I’ll henceforth refer to it simply as KotOR).
