Today’s deal is Spec Ops: The Line!
I’m writing to complain about something that has recently happened to me as a result of your website. Today for my birthday my parents bought me the new Call of Duty, something I’d been asking for for MONTHS, by the way, and now six hours have gone by and I still haven’t taken it out of the package because I can’t stop thinking about the horrors of war, and the effect they might have on the minds of the soldiers. I have no other explanation for this than that something changed within me after buying and playing through Spec Ops: The Line here on Chrono.gg
I was suckered in by my favorite voice actor Nolan North, but very soon after I began asking myself things like “why do we glorify things like this?” and “I should remember that some people go through this for real” and now all I can do is play baby games and satisfy myself with the notion of games as art on par with other forms like paintings books and movies. Life is infinitely more complex and it’s all cause I played the wrong game.
So please Chrono, if there’s any way to make me ignorant again, to erase from my mind these complicated feelings of fear and beauty and regret, show me how, so that I may play with the present my parents gave me guilt free. In the meantime, all I’ve been playing is Stardew Valley, and I’m beginning to forget which life is the real one and which one is on the other side of a beautiful digital veil.
